You could sell it for twice that easily in the developing world, which is exactly what Apple is going to do with them.
You have a Right to keep and bear arms, but not any arms you want.
You have a Right to travel, but not by any mode you want. For example, there is no Right to drive a motor vehicle in the US, nor is there a Right to fly on an airplane.
There is no Right to Drive in the US, where driving is a rather a privilege.
Surely they can't be seriously considering New Orleans II. We all know how that catastrophe has worked out.
What the hell. You'd think we'd have learned the first few times we went around playing world police.
There is no compelling national security interest in Syria. None at all. There is no legal justification for Obama to strike Assad without proof they were his chemical weapons, nor proof he was the one who used them, and without the approval of Congress.
Fuck Obama. He's proved to be just another goddamn failure.
Did you come to this conclusion before or after you saw her face?
The US has veto power against any resolution the UN might pass against the US. Nothing to worry about...
Haliday and Resnick?
I'm waiting for the new publication from Cooper, Hofstadter, Wolowitz, and Koothrappali
Nah, San Francisco is a bunch of dirty leftist hippies. They're accustomed to being unshowered and when TSHTF they'll just gather around the campfire and sing kumbayah and wait for big government to come save them.
1) This solves the problem of student access to class materials. See, with the eBook approach, licenses can be made to be enabled on the first day of class and disabled on the last day of class. This prevents students from having early access to class materials, which levels the playing field for those who, for whatever reason, do not care to start learning before the first day of class
2) This solves the problem of killing trees. Now, instead of using renewable, natural resources to print textbooks that last 50 or more years on a shelf and provide information over a person's entire career and even lifetime, we can start using non-renewable rare earth materials to make iPads, which last perhaps a few years and may or may not be able to give access to that same information depending on whether or not someone else wants you to be able to read it.
3) This solves the problem of organic learning. With the smaller form factor and lower density of information, as well as the appeal to a shorter attention span, we can stop all this organic learning stuff and resort instead to rote memorization of bulleted facts, figures, and equations, which can then simply be regurgitated on multiple-choice exams.
Hobbling more competitive students, more destruction to the environment and higher cost, and dumbing down our students. It's a hat-trick of WIN!
Someone mod this AC up. These have been my thoughts about America in general for the better part of two decades. People don't care enough about the theft of their liberties to do anything about it. As long as they can still catch the Kardashians on MTV, they don't care if they have to submit to daily or hourly anal probes by various three-letter-agencies.
Corporations would never go along with simply "not doing business involving travel" for a whole month.
