Re: iOS is Android

I was in the market for 4 phones. The cost savings over the Verizon store was $400. For that amount, I'm willing to endure some pain.

Re: Change a watch battery

I am philosophically opposed to the consumerist throw-away society. Bad for the environment. Multiplied by 7 billion (the earth's population), even a little waste reduction adds up.

Re: Change a watch battery

Or you could just buy a new watch. $25/7 years = $3.57/year. Go crazy, treat yourself.

Re: LBYM news sources

I wonder if the middle class and below (you know I mean income below the top 5%, $186k ;-) will be priced out of news--other than the most biased sources (and a few more objective intrepid souls) that want to push their message to the middle class [more]

Re: "Group" gifts (a rant)

I think we should do more to celebrate holidays and be social than we do actually. We do give gifts to everyone at christmas but we have strict rules about how much you are supposed to spend.

Why? Isn't there enough of this in your [more]

Re: Prisoner swap was right

It sends the right message to our men and women in uniform...

Then why are our men and women in uniform the most vocal critics of this move?

Re: Bergdhal an asset?

Wonder how much Bergdahl learned about Taliban and AQ personnel and operations during his five years "in captivity." And wonder whether a hidden part of this story is his intelligence value to the CIA. The deserter-traitor story seems a [more]

The owner is also utterly and unrelentingly rude to everyone he deals with internally; I believe he is a libertarian.

Re: Restaurant chains with senior discounts

OP: Here are some good senior discounts. Most of these places aren't healthy but use them if you're going there anyway.

Re: Restaurant chains with senior discounts

As I scan the list, the true benefit is only in the wallet. There are 41 restaurants on the list. 11 of these 41 are in my 29,000 pop. town, including 2 each of Arby's, MCD, Wendy's, B-King, and Subway. The list looks like a Who's Who of deep-fry, [more]

Re: What did you do for Mom today?

Hallmark didn't create Mother's Day.

Neither did FTD, or 1-800-Flowers.

Re: PK Subban

Subban is an awesome player. He controls the puck as well as any defenseman in the league and has a rocket slapshot. I love the battles he is having with Lucic and Thornton.

Re: An Open Letter

Call amazon - they can deactivate the kindle (and reactivate it if you get it back).

If he does that the thief won't get any pleasure at all from the kindle.
