Comment Re:Seems reasonable.. (Score 1) 1271

Don't like my medical advice? Fine, go somewhere else. Seems perfectly reasonable and rational. If I were these doctors, I wouldn't want to feel responsible for the health of a child whose parents were demonstrably not interested in keeping their child healthy.

I agree. In addition, when their families are sitting in my waiting room, their non-vaccinated brood are spread infectious diseases to vulnerable patients - those too infirm or too young to be vaccinated.

Why should I permit the vulnerable patients to be exposed to vaccine-preventable diseases? Am I not responsible for their care even more than I am for those who prefer to ignore my advice?

...a head's-up display. Some might consider it kewel to have a jet-fighter-like HUD, but I think it's practical: I don't have to take my eyes off the road to tell how fast I'm going.

I'd also like some sort of protection from the idiots who think their cars have the options listed above - especially the jet engine.

"Rob Enderle, an analyst with the Enderle Group"

No, Rob Enderle is the Enderle Group.

Based on Rob's reporting history with companies like the SCO Group, Novell, IBM and Microsoft, I've long ago concluded he inhabits his own little fictional world.

This report is quoting quite heavily from Rob the Delusional. If he says Google is going, they're probably staying.
