Heh, as someone who just tried beta, kinda find this thread funny. I lasted about 15 seconds on beta before going back to classic.

On topic though, just strip out the parts of jQuery you need, rename them, and use them as-is. Think about it like static-linking a library.

You are absolutely correct in that you are missing my point. A loss leader always cuts into profits. That's part of the definition of a loss leader. The loss is likely expanding due to inflation and increase in services (Keep in mind, the streaming portion, which is now a major driver of Prime subscriptions, was added without increasing the price). That being said, adjusted for straight inflation, the price would have been about $99 ($97.43, based on CPI to 12-31-13) anyway. In reality, the spending power surrendered to get Prime access has fallen.

There's nothing "magic" about hibernate. When your system boots up, the OS initializes whatever it needs to the get to a state in which it can boot, then checks to see if their is a hibernation file. If there is, it will load it into RAM, and do whatever it needs to bring the system into an operational state. If not, the OS will continue the boot process. Regardless, decryption of your disk occurs long before the system has even checked for the existence of a hibernation file, let alone needed to start using its contents.

It basically mostly supports the states that refused to set up their own exchanges, I believe. The 34 it supports should include all 27 or so that refused to set up exchanges, plus a few here and there. I was disappointed that Massachusetts wasn't included, because I'm curious what I would pay if my employer didn't provide insurance.
