They also censor artists who criticize Walmart.
This is correct. In the late 1990's Sheryl Crow had a song with the lyric Watch out sister/Watch out brother/Watch our children as they kill each other/with a gun they bought at the Wal-Mart discount stores. It was banned and to this day the album isn't available in stores (or online). It is available on their download site here. Go figure. For details on the controversy, see here.
As for the story at hand. I've learned to mostly avoid the App Store and the entire iTunes store. It isn't worth it anymore.
....or even better, Real the Documents!
You can find Reagan's 1983 Executive Order on the subject here. In my reading of the text, it puts INTERPOL under the rules of the International Organizations Immunities Act in all areas except for customs duties and tax. Obama's Executive Order (which is here) appears to put INTERPOL under the remaining rules that Reagan didn't do. If one wants to blame Obama for giving INTERPOL unlimited immunity, then Reagan should be blamed as well since he put the organization under this Act to begin with.
It isn't just the UBS 4 (and NA 27) that is copyrighted. The most current edition of the Majority Text by Maurice A. Robinson is, but he gives it away (see here). The only PD Greek texts I know of would probably be the Scrivener edition of the Textus Receptus and the Westcott & Hort text as both were completed in 1881. Its sad it is like this, but what can you do?
I really agree with this post. When I was shopping for a replacement for my Creative NOMAD II in 2004-05, I was amazed by how much Apple's competitors were trying to out iPod the iPod. The worst of these was Creative. Their Zen Micro line was a dead ringer for the iPod, interface wise. This seems to still be the case all of these years later. In short, if these companies want to get folks out of the iWorld, they need to step up their game and not try to out iPhone the iPhone. Only time will tell if this happens.
On the other hand "Peaches" charted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #29. However "Lump" never charted on the Hot 100. The song however peaked at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart.
As for me, I remember the Presidents from back in the day - mainly for "Peaches". I got the debut used last year and really like it as well. Overall I prefer the Presidents to what passes for music now.
Obama owns an iPod; see the Chicago Sun-Times.
As for your other point, I agree with you about this being something the Zune doesn't need. Two years ago, I saw the Zune and wasn't that impressed. As someone who has used various iPods and Creative's NOMAD, I'm not gloating. This could have happened to any device out there. To me this is just another MS goof in the worst way. Didn't they learn anything from Y2K?
