I hear sports cause bodily harm. They also cause aggression. Being in sports competitively can also lead to steroid use. Playing a game leads to mental exercise. Sure, you're not moving much(unless it's Wii, Move, or Kinect), but I'd rather play make-believe games then come home with something broken. There should be a study on how sports affect teen aggression and how the competitiveness of sports lead to athletes doing things to their bodies that isn't healthy.
The motion sickness would make everyone sick. I get sick just staring at the wing when the pilot is turning. It would just be too disorientating.
But that is really cool and innovative. This product fulfills a need that is currently not being met. I'm sure that will be copycaters pretty soon.
I went on there this morning and they only have a very small number of artists(Lady Gaga, Linkin Park, U2, Katy Perry, Yo-Yo Ma, Jack Johnson, Shakira, Coldplay, Mark Ronson, Taylor Swift, Dave Matthews Band, and Diddy.) I don't think this will make a dent into Facebook, but if there are a ton of artists who migrate to this then I see that this will certainly hurt myspace music.
Gawker is just mad they didn't get the scoop. Maybe next time they should offer Assange cash. Apparently that's how they get their scoops.
The vocal minority bitch and moan. The majority of people like the service. It can't be all bad otherwise people would flee. Also, Apple would have nothing to do with a company that its consumers don't support. If Apple is happy then the majority of people are happy.
Dr. Who left him in the present. He's actually a retail book manager at Futuremart. They went for a male love interest this time around but they had a argument and he's stuck in our time working as a retail manager at Wal-mart. He logs into Slashdot to be in the midst of history. Hopefully he won't mess up the time line.
I tried my hardest back in college to really like programming. I failed. I was taught VB and Java. I just couldn't get around how foreign it is to me to think and write the way programmers do. I think we need a real natural language programming language that anyone can understand to use. Why not put the brains at Google to create such a programming language. I have been looking at Google's App Creator and it looks really neat. Visually creating programs is also another way to get people into programming.
All the broadband companies interest is just protecting themselves to a constant stream of income without regard to the health of the internet. The Internet to them is just a revenue stream. Their interest is shaping the internet to maximize that stream. "Protecting the Consumers" is just a phrase used to blanket the problem of broadband trying to shape the internet into cable.
When the time comes, you will seek them. Most people just look in the phone book. That's where the ad should be. If anything, having such an ad when your grandma is not doing well is actually a turn-off. It depresses people. I'm fine with TV ads but when you have a picture of your own grandma and then an ad for a funeral home, that just goes over the line. It's like having pics of young men with accompanying ad for beer or condoms. Or a teenage girl and an ad for birth-control. The ads are fine where they belong, but they don't belong associated with a picture you personally put up yourself.
People don't want invasive ads. I like the ads of yesteryear. All they did was provide information. Nowadays I've got ads that try to appeal to my emotions. It's ridiculous. Why such the rampant ads with children? Their only purpose is to attract women into buying said items. It appeals to the mother in them. For men,they see lots of commercials about young boys and baseball. Also young girls and how they are princesses. Appealing to emotions, I think is going to far. Why would I want an emotional response to a box of cereal? Ads for me are just a vehicle to provide information about a product or service I may want to use. The whole concept of using pictures, that you yourself have taken, to funnel ads also goes too far. Imagine if it could discern the age of individuals. Would you like to have the local funeral home advertising just because there is a picture of grandma on the screen? Of course not.
Yeah, also, how exactly am I gonna explain an article entitled "How to Get Laid at Work"? I'm sure the higher-ups, female in this organization, are gonna love that.
