Comment Block It (Score 3, Informative) 60

The Feds should block this one if it ever comes close to being attempted. We have an absolute dearth of competition as it stands now. I looked at moving from Time Warner for my internet and found AT&T is the only option in my area. TW is okay, but overpriced and I have never heard a good thing about AT&T. Allow the two to combine and I get the worst of both worlds.

So you know those albums that were recorded in the 60's and 70's that the bands or record companies suddenly re-release with shitty mixes or that now include "lost tapes" of the engineer belching or other detritus? You know ..the stuff that's released for no other reason than to extend the copyright.

Something about this release brings that phenomenon to mind for some reason...

Whats app does not have the the small limits for sms,mms, as telephone networks do. Whatsapp allows you to message worldwide with other whats app users, as well as calling without cost as long as you are on wifi. It has a been a boon to those of us with family and friends in other countries. It allows for communication across different networks.

"i buy cars that make me happy and will be fun to drive. All I'm looking for is what is the best can I can afford to enjoy driving for the money I can spend....gas mileage, I don't really even look at..."

Just because you don't doesn't mean all of us don't.

Gas mileage was one of my top criteria for choosing a car. I bought a car that advertised 27 mpg city, 37 highway, combined 30 mpg. I get around 32 mpg combined, or 35 when I am driving to maximize gas mileage. Overall, I have dropped my gas expenditures 100 dollars per month (roughly) for a car that was under $14,000.

So yes, many people like me do use it as a criterion for their car purchase.
