But that wouldn't apply to smashwords. Erotica is a small part of what they sell. They sell lots fantasy & science fiction, and they're one of the larger ebook vendors who doesn't DRM their ebooks.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I don't buy it.
How do the "partner banks" KNOW what sub-sub-classifications of erotica are getting the chargebacks?
I don't know. Can you name another field where employee evaluations are released to the public?
Didn't say I wanted to punish him, or even that I was going to vote for his opponent.
Just that I feel stupid for having believed that he might have stood behind the things he was saying.
Just that I can empathize with the people who have given up, because anyone who has a chance of being elected is a fucking sellout.
But no, I'll dutifully trot down to the polls in June and November and vote for whatever candidates make me gag the least.
It's like the response letters I've gotten back from BOTH of my senators, dutifully explaining to me why we must protect the rights of the MPAA and RIAA to the exclusion of mine. But I can vote for them, or I can vote for someone worse, who is against rights that I hold even more dearly.
Alomst every intrusion Bush pushed; Homeland Security, NoNock warrants, NoTell warrants, warrantless searches, control of the Internet, indefinite arrest without charges - The Obama administration has enlarged on.
And I not only voted for him, I campaigned for him.
But then again, the appointment can be blocked by just one senator.
You know, you didn't even have to RTFA for this, just reading the freaking summary would have been enough. Let's try again, shall we?
"A non-surgical procedure that treats joint pain involves removing stem cells from a patient's blood and reinserting them into the joint. The facility conducting these procedures resides in Colorado, but because it orders equipment to perform the procedure from outside of Colorado, the FDA claims it must regulate this process and it that it can classify stem cells as a drug."
You missed the point... The OP was saying no American MANUFACTURING company can match that (being FoxConn, not Apple). Because of trivial things like labor laws, child labor laws, minimum wage, lack of a communist government...
It's also all those pesky environmental laws in other countries.
"China’s Pollution Is So Insane You Can See It From Space" http://gizmo.do/zkiOIG
Why is it that all these "Free Market" GOP candidates never seem to point out that all the manufacturing jobs are going to the dreaded communist countries (or other totalitarian regimes)?
Maybe, just maybe, there's a link between between being obscenely profitable and using labor that has no rights whatsoever?
Or it might mean the difference between astronomical profits and just profits.
"With an estimated bill of materials between $170 to $220, depending on capacity, the manufacturing margins on the iPhone 4S are roughly 71-73%.
That, Whitmore concludes, "should support attractive corporate margins for AAPL for multiple quarters.""
Chick-fil-A has thrown a lot of support to anti-gay and "defense of marriage" groups.
Why on Earth WOUNLD'T you give your code to your boss if he/she asked for it, no matter how offensively?
It's a copy, for Pete's sake. What are you afraid of, that they'll print it out and scribble on it? (Well, mine might.)
So if there something wrong under a Democrat administration, it's the President's fault, but if there's something under a Republican administration, it's Congress's fault.
OK, I get it.
