the ONLY reason to use itunes is that you own an iDevice or want to buy from the Apple store. If you are not doing that, why the hell are you using itunes?
Yes. people go to their concerts or buy the songs from them, musicians rely on radio and streaming stations to get their music known and wanted by the public. If a station is making RECORD profits, then they must share that profit with the artists. nonprofits get to play all music for free as much as they want.
In medicine it is fully understood that you can pretty much bleed any patient's wallet dry.
Step1 - Stop going to ANY restaurant or delivered food. All of it is utter crap, stop eating it.
Step2 - Buy only foods that are from the fresh food section and meat section. Veggies+Meat and only dark brown breads with whole wheat/grains
Step3 - download and install myfitness pal and do it religiously.
Step4 - repeat.
The biggest is to abandon restaurants completely. Every place from McDonalds to a 5 star bistro only make low grade dog food. Stop eating that crap. This step alone will make a HUGE difference.
They already have that, It's called gastric bypass and liposuction. you dont even have to wait to lose the weight.
Most doctors education is lacking, Once the leave med school I don't see them going back for more education. My family doctor of 45 years graduated med school and became a GP in 1955, he even delivered me when I was born, and I saw him regularly until he died this past year. I know his education in medicine was way out of date but he was smart enough to refer me to a different doctor or specialist when It was needed. GP's need to do the same and refer patients to specialists that have more recent education that know about the treatments.
I know my doctor was the exception, he did house calls and worked until he died. I know he charged people what they could pay and refused to abide by the "minimum pricing racket" that the insurance companies and feds require. He became a doctor to help people, not to become wealthy. And he helped people all the way to the moment he died.
And yes the last 2 decades I drove all the way back to that small town to visit him as my doctor. Because I wanted a doctor that cared about people, not his Porsche. (He drove a Chevy btw...)
And here I am still listening to all my shoutcast stations like I always have been. Some of the DJs don't speak English or do so with an accent. But as long as we're connected to Europe I can still stream music from them.
it drops to 3 when I go on a bender.
You forgot it requires Scientology application 3 times a day.
and far better articles than the New Yorker....
Really I DO read the articles...
Like multiple DIES... the way we used to do it with P3 and P4... sadly Intel and AMD hate their users and only allow that on their server line where the processors are 4X the price and 1/2 the performance.
I will gladly pay for the motherboard to support 4 processors at 8 cores each, but I am stuck buying craptastic server class processors at extortion pricing.
FM radio stations all get to play music for free and in some cases they get paid to play it. Yet on the internet BMI and ASCAP turn into vampires sucking dry anything that is different.
The blame is The labels, BMI, and ASCAP. Those are the ones that deserve all your anger, ire, and hatered.
I need to upgrade every 2. But I am one of those guys that actually uses the computer. Programming, advanced mathematics, and HD video editing all demand the fastest processors or more and more cores. I have 12 cores right now and wish I had 18 or 20 as I could use the speed to get more work done.
"For decades, low skilled software developers have been able to play fast and loose,"
Embedded system programmers are the only real programmers anymore.
Yes it is, If you knew anything AT ALL about computers or electronics you would know that. Go look up how audio pathways work in a computer kid.
