iPhone bill unboxed by i-Justine {Engadget}

Aug 15th 2007 2:39PM This is NOT fake. I had Cingular for a couple of years and usually got a 5-6 page bill, depending on how many calls I made in a given period. After switching to an iPhone, my current bill was 174 pages. Yes. 1-7-4. Every data transaction is logged, on unlimited service...

@buzweaver:

You 'Earth Last' morons always come up with this kind of stuff. Hey, you know oil is constantly forming in the earths crust also, so I guess we'll never run out, huh brainiac?

Either way, a detailed bill that lists every call and EVERY data transaction seems a bit stupid, don't you think?

New expansion, new map {WoW}

Aug 6th 2007 9:15AM I'd be willing to bet that if the map changes are going to follow what is shown, perhaps they're re-doing the "unfinished" parts of the old maps so we can finally use flying mounts on the old continents. Remember that they said the reason you coulnd't was because of the terrain issues. And if you've used the utility that let you fly over the whole continent, you would see why.

RIAA petitions for lower artist royalties {TUAW.com}

Dec 8th 2006 11:31AM Yep, it's time to cut out the record companies and the "RIAA" entirely. Have the artists buy their own home studios (cheap and easy these days), or go to Apple to record directly to digital, and sell off the iTunes store. Get rid of the middle man.

Of course, they'll try all their nasty tactics like blackballing certain bands and trying to keep their CD's out of the stores, but these days, everything is cheaper and easier. I'm sure someone like Amazon would love to get the stuff direct, not deal with the RIAA and record companies, and get their stuff cheaper and sell cheaper.

Eliminate the dinosaur record companies entirely. They're no longer wanted or needed.

UMG Doug "You are all Pirates" Morris eyes iPod {TUAW.com}

Nov 30th 2006 4:42PM This has gone on long enough. Time to remove the record company "middle men" from the picture entirely. They are no longer wanted or needed. You can build a professional multi-track recording studio for peanuts these days. Have Apple hire some good producers, let the artists come in and record everything straight to digital, and sell it on-line. The artist gets a piece, and Apple gets a piece. End of issue.

Time for "record" companies to go the way of the record. Obsolete.

Breakfast Topic: Luckiest Day Ever {WoW}

Sep 11th 2006 11:05AM Seems like my luck runs in streaks also. I remember a long while back when my first character was grinding in Desolace. I was killing the demons in the NE corner, just for money and XP, and I got a green on my 2nd kill, then a couple more right after. I kept killing for well over an hour, and filled my empty bag spots with greens. It was better than a twink run through Deadmines! Went to Nijel's to sell off the junk and mail out some green, when I got back to the demons, they stopped dropping.

Just a few days ago, my mage was doing the Tier .5 quests, the part where you gather the ectoplasm. While killing in Silitus, the Jeweled Amulet of Cainwyn dropped (only my second BoE epis wold drop ever). And later that same night while collecting ectoplasms in EPL, a Hanzo Sword dropped, and shortly after, a blue BoE dagger (can't remember the name, but it sold for over 200g). That was a good day.

Breakfast Topic: You Knew the Group Was Doomed When.... {WoW}

Sep 5th 2006 10:19AM ...when the Druid says "don't worry, I used to do this all the time in Everquest", and runs into a whole group.
