What's really amusing about the B&N/Amazon thing is that as B&N falters against Amazon(I will point out that TradPub is as big of a problem for B&N here as anything they're actually doing wrong) the tiny bookstores that B&N pushed out of the market are starting to come back. They won't thrive nearly as well as they used to of course, but they'll at least exist.

Less wage slaves and more slaves to our own desires. If you were to live a life like a family from the 1950's your expenditures would be much less as well. But everybody needs that second car. They need to eat fast food rather than cook. They need to pay for that cable and internet. They need central heating and air.

Erm, I'm pretty sure the 2699 is the top of the line for their Xeon DPs. At worst it is the 3rd best from what I can tell, and no one has benchmarks that I can find of the two newer processors that might replace it, the E7-8890 and E7-8894. As they were probably able to borrow or rent the 2699's from someone and they weren't going to blow 20,000+ to purchase equipment for a single benchmark, it's unsurprising they didn't go for the two newer chips.
