Comment Re:Which is why Apple does product placement (Score 2) 232

Apple isn't the only company that does product placement, but they are by far the most common computer company that does it.

Are you delusional? If you don't think Samsung is out spending EVERYBODY right now, then you are nuts. They spend a considerable (http://www.asymco.com/2012/11/29/the-cost-of-selling-galaxies/) amount of money, on not only Ads, but "product placement" (Hello Academy Awards selfie) and other crap.

It may have been the case a few years ago that Apple out spent everyone on marketing, but this hasn't been the case for a few years.

I wish there were better ways of reporting broken sites. I just tried to inform quicksilver.com that there SSL was messed up, but the told me to reset my cookies. Lol.

How do you report something like this, if their own "support" is either ignorant or not prepared to deal with these issues. Obviously, someone at Target new of the problems, but couldn't get upper management to listen.

Comment Re:As someone on food stamps... (Score 2) 1043

I truly wish people would understand this.

Pretty much, anything processed is going to be either high in salt, sugar or fats.

I have no problems with food stamps, but I wish that you could only buy fruits, vegetables, grains and meat with them. Not only would people be healthier, but they would actually be saving money as well. Yes, believe it or not, healthy food cost less. Mainly, because YOU have to prepare it and cook it.
