Yep. Also, because it's so heavily "processed", much of its nutritional value (vitamins, minerals, other trace nutrients we may not even know about yet) are destroyed, and when manufacturers even care to correct this they "fortify" the end product to try to replace the missing/destroyed nutrients, resulting in a completely different composition than the original raw food materials had, further contributing to the mess, and probably contributing to 'binge eating' in many cases as the body craves something that is missing from the processed foods being consumed, triggering further consumption.
Meh, since the fundamental file block size is based on 1K == 1024 bytes, all multiples should use the same consistent multiplier, so that 1M == 1024^2, 1G == 1024^3 and so on. Anything else is, well, inconsistent and illogical.
Or are we now going to change disk formats so that the fundamental block sizes are multiples of 1000? That'd be way efficient... there are programmatic (and hardware) reasons why disk blocks have sizes that are multiples of 2, not 10.
Unfortunately they won't go out of business over stuff like this. Most consumers don't care about consequences of their purchasing choices, the reasons for which are numerous -- too dumb, busy, or simply apathetic. "The customer is (almost) always right" only applies if the available customer pool is small enough for that to matter; once a market grows beyond a certain size, companies only have to make X % of their customers happy, and marginalize or ignore the rest.
I'd love for things to be different, for for a completely DRM-free eBook to be available, but I'm also too cynical to believe this could ever happen.
I have a '07 Charger R/T with perf. pkg, and am lucky to get 14-15 mpg around town (lots of short trips, stop-n-go doesn't help.)
During a recent long distance trip, first leg I cruised 80mph and noticed MDS didn't kick in much; I got 19 mpg. Later on I kept speed to 70-75 and averaged about 23 mpg the rest of the way. I don't doubt I could get the EPA rated 25mpg if I had the patience to drive 60-65...
