Comment Re:Price has other factors (Score 1) 91

Do they get updates or not? I couldn't parse the awful headline:

"The phones are attractive because they contain no bloatware, competing services, and a lack of software and security updates"

You have to parse it as "The phones are attractive because they contain no ... lack of software and security updates," suggesting that as part of the program, Google dictates that there will be software and security updates.

Try citing the actual case.

The relevant case is Ex parte Garland (1867), in which Justice Stephen J. Field, writing for the court in a 5-4 decision, wrote that a president's pardon power ''extends to every offense known to the law, and may be exercised at any time after its commission, either before legal proceedings are taken, or during their pendency, or after conviction and judgment.'' This precedent was reaffirmed in Murphy v. Ford (1975).

Comment Token add-on packs (Score 3, Insightful) 123

Why doesn't Monopoly come with a starter set of four classic tokens, and then offer add-on token sets? There could be themed sets (co-marketed with McDonald's!), memorial sets, holiday sets, and rare Beanie Baby-like individual tokens that sell for hundreds of dollars in secondary markets. Has the owner of Monopoly missed the last 20 years of marketing innovation?
