Kobo has made a big push internationally where other companies aren't really doing much e-book business.
I joined Kobo when they had about 50 employees and worked there for a year and a half. They had recently spun-off from Chapters/Indigo and renamed themselves from Shortcovers to Kobo.
The Rakuten acquisition happened shortly after I left, but I imagine the only real impact to Kobo is in terms of having more financial backing and maybe it even helps them partner up with different book retailers in different companies.
I can guarantee washing machines aren't on anyone's mind at Kobo HQ.
I'm trying to figure out if you're referring to Shawn of the Dead, and mistakenly thinking that the "Blue Monday" New Order record was a real 5.25" floppy disk.
They were making a valid point about how this would indicate we are not right in the middle of a goldilocks zone, which one would expect if creationism were true.
Then you went crazy. Quote a single word that indicated bigotry? The only hatred I see is in your rant.

I have that cart... and I always wanted to get into it but never could. Maybe its because I didnt have the manual and I was always just guessing at what the commands / syntax could be.
I'm from the USA and lived in Canada for a while, now back in the USA again. I've visited UK, Australia, India, China, and Brazil. I think long term however many years down the line I'd like to go back to Canada eventually.
Many models of Color Computer II?
I think there was just one, with maybe a few different options for how much RAM you got.
There were two different looking versions of the original Color Computer though, as I recall, one silver and one beige, with maybe different keyboards. But the Color Computer 2 (roman numerals were for the Apple) looked pretty much like the Color Computer 3.
I can still fire up the ol' Tandy Color Computer 2 and put those 64Ks through their paces with a rousing game of Pooyan, Demon Attack, or Dragonfire.
Such original humor, how do you come up with such gems?
I think MSNBC TV has its offices in 30 Rockefeller Plaza in NYC, but msnbc.com has its offices actually within Microsoft's campus in Redmond WA.
I wonder if they'll have to move out.
So once a work of fiction becomes popular, it becomes true? I guess this is the point you were trying to make? Just to be clear....
I fail to see how con jobs and churches are at all mutually exclusive. There are countless examples of people getting ripped off in the name of Jesus. It has no bearing on how much of a church it is or not.
Sure it's off the wall and only for gullible people... but do you think early Christianity, or any religion, wasn't?
Give it a few thousand years and people might be saying this new XYZ religion is obviously crazy, and not like the respectable air and tradition about Christianity or Scientology. Look at how mainstream LDS is already... we have a presidential candidate.
It's not like the church you think doesn't need quotes is any more valid than this 'church' which you think needs quotes.
