Comment Buy an Island (Score 1) 842

I'd buy an island off the coast of Italy. I'd find someone willing to spend all my money (which shouldn't be too hard) and I'd use a couple million to create a venture capitalist corporation. I'd hire people to run the day-to-day operations and live on my island away from the world.

If there's any money left, I'd buy a professional sports team.

I have a 2013 Ford Fusion with Sync and MyFord Touch. I've honestly not found much issue with it, but that doesn't mean I haven't found any issues. I actually like Sync over what GM and Nissan have for UI but the touchscreen is, admittedly, crap.

The only feature I have but can't use is the speak-to-text feature; I assume that's a Windows Phone only feature. I also don't like how the vehicle reports in maintenance checks. Instead of using my phone's internet capability it makes a phonecall instead.

Other then that, I have no problem with it.

The interesting thing is that many newspapers are owner by a larger newspaper. The Boston Globe is/was owned by the NYT, The LA Times is owned by the Chicago Tribune, etc. I think what's missing is a form of brand cohesion, as in naming all newspapers in a family one central name and having a dedicated website for all.
