Really. I called in and my experience was the same as yours up to "if they found it interesting they would call me back". They didn't tell me the call would be scripted or researched. Why the heck would they tell the caller if they did that? I really don't think that they have an obligation to disclose and would have nothing to gain by it. You sure you're talking about Cartalk here?
Right on with the amount of ads we are exposed to!
Tell you what, Fox. Take all of those bugs off the screen when the show is running and we will consider watching an ad or two. I'd bet that putting those bugs on top of programming is way closer to a copyright violation than an ad skipper.
Interesting that you make out the US to be the governing authority for Cuban computer purchases. Cuba can purchase the same computers you can purchase in the US, just not from the US. I don't know how accessible the Internet is outside the resorts, but it has certainly been available in the resorts for at least a few years now. Very slow and expensive a few years ago but indeed there.
I guess they make exceptions for those with hard currency to leave behind, but this is a communist government and the Internet truly is the opiate of the masses... not to be trusted. Can you imagine the reaction these cats had when they were briefed about how easy it is for a PC to use ssl/ssh and how much privacy it affords the user? There is a big difference between developing countries and developing communist countries, as I'm sure Mr. Gross is currently aware.
Is Yahoo a verb now? That's my measure of a good search engine. I remember the heady days when things were Alta Vistilated.
My mother also told me about some guy in a red suit that drops off gifts, a rabbit who delivers candy eggs and a cash-for-bicuspids program. She also told my brother that he was a great drummer.
It's called diplomacy, which is something less likely to be used by governments starting this week.
"Banned" Nikon D40 DSLR
Standard 18-55mm zoom lens
"Legal" Nikon P7000 digital camera
28-200mm zoom lens
Both cameras feature an "automatic" setting that allows the camera to take great pictures. The legal one looks much less conspicuous and doesn't have to be held at your eye to take a photo.
