If you actually look at the charts and graphs on this report, saying there's a negative correlation is a big stretch, especially since I didn't see any numbers on confidence intervals or fitness of the fit. It looks at a glance like there's no real correlation, with most returns clustered around 1.5, and with the compensation fairly flat except for outliers that tend to be greater for the poorer performing companies.

Not having the metric system here, has never affected my life, nor anyone I know really

Well, you've never met me.
Though by no means a showstopper, it is definitely a pain to work using feet, inches, fraction of inches; square feet, square inches; cubic inches, gallons, cubic feet, acre-feet; pounds force, pounds mass; pounds per square inch, pounds per square foot, inches mercury, inches water, feet water, atmospheres; pounds per cubic inch, pounds per cubic foot, pounds per gallon; miles per hour, feet per minute, feet per second; etc. (Don't even let me get started about the various units for viscosity which don't have linear conversions).

I thought you had to agree to reasonable terms to use the product?

This is not a software license. You are free to do anything you want with a product like a car after you buy it Whose liability it is if you abuse the product is a separate issue, but the burden is usually on the manufacturer to prove that it wasn't their fault.

I don't just want a place to write new notes, but I want instant access to all of my previous notes as well.

Notes are not meant to be repositories of great knowledge for future generations, they're meant to be small reminders.

I'd have to cart around hundreds of small spiral bound notebooks to hold all of my notes.

At some point, you need to quit calling them notes.
