IThe weight isn't really any different, the reason it's so uncomfortable to hold for long periods is the same as any other iPad, there's simply no good way to hold it without blocking or touching the screen.

its a two handed device.

It is a business... You were getting something for free. Now if you want it you have to pay $20 per YEAR. Not really a huge cost in my opinion. If you really need to use it you get a single address for free, or you pay for more. I havent had the need for it in years since comcast gives me the same ip for years at a time and when it changes I just login to gmail and go to the bottom and click "Details" and it shows me all the ips that I have logged in with and one of them is my home machine.

In Germany you do pay Property Taxes (Grundsteuer).... it doesnt matter if its federal blah blah... a tax is a tax.. and its looks much worse in germany than in the US actually.... Municipalities impose an annual tax on land/ property. The tax is levied on the assessed value of the property using the basic federal rate of 0.35%. The amount is further multiplied by municipal coefficients to calculate for the final tax due, which ranges from 280% to 810%. The effective rate is between 0.98% and 2.84% of the fiscal value but the average rate is 1.9%.

There are running jobs. Why don't you go chase them?
