Re: Converted Son To Apple Products

I suspect for a college student, and Macbook Air would be best, unless he really, really needs the added power in the Pro. The Air will be easier to carry around which, assuming he'll be using physical textbooks, will be much appreciated. Of course, [more]

Re: Finale

I know a lot of people didn't like them

I didn't dislike them. I just thought they had been pretty underwhelming over the course of the race (and were it not for the "4 teams start the final leg this time" switch, they would [more]

Re: Poll: The Interview -- Precedents?

I don't know if this fits all of the criteria (a plot to assassinate the leaders), but the first Naked Gun movie started (from what I recall) with a scene where the Ayatollah, Gorbachev, and, I think Qaddaffi (and maybe a few others) were in a room [more]

Re: Bojack Horseman

Oswalt is always great.

One of my favorite things of his was when he did a filibuster on Parks & Recreation, which was improvised. The original version (which was obviously cut down for the episode) ran about 8 minutes, and it's [more]

Re: 10 of the most expensive TV shows ever made

It killed the show.

No, it didn't. The show was already on its last legs and the cast was ready to leave. In order to keep the show alive and to delay moving on with their careers, both the cast and the studio/network agreed to those [more]

Re: 10 of the most expensive TV shows ever made

Friends cost so much because the actors got greedy.

You say "greedy", I say that both NBC and Warner Bros. (the studio who produced it) were making TONS of money off of the show, in no small part due to the actors in the [more]

Re: Really?

I'd say my order of preferred winners would be (from most desired to least):

1) Wrestlers -- they really are entertaining, and they are able to joke about their limitations (such as them not being the brightest).
2) Surfers -- they've [more]

Re: American Masters: Crosby

Clearly PBS never marveled at Denise's work in Pet Sematary. But then, neither did anyone else.

Re: Mark as Read

I also find it ironic that the post that I just sent is not marked as read even though I wrote it. So I need to either reenter the board and read the post or remember to mark the category as read.

Seems silly, don't you

Re: Very Disturbing...

I believe Amazon was free of any restrictions. You could copy, share, play their music on pretty much anything.

Right, but that was 3.5 - 4 years after FairPlay launched (and by that point, Apple was already offering some songs (from [more]

Re: Very Disturbing...

I often wondered why Apple had to play by strict rules, and nobody else did.

At the time, Apple's "rules" weren't nearly as strict as other systems at the time. The only rule I ran up against was the original 5 device limit, [more]

Re: iPad Air 2 Screen distortion artifact

Two things:

1) You're holding it wrong (come on, you know someone was going to say that)

2) Isn't this similar to what happens when you apply some pressure to any large, thin display (particularly LCDs) -- though, that's often [more]

I don't get why all the teams ganged up against the cyclists (before that plan fell apart, anyway), and then the second choice to U-Turn were the surfers. Wouldn't you want to U-Turn the dentists, who had won the most legs? (Keeping in mind they [more]

I'm not a big multiplayer person,
