Re: Keynote or State of the Union...

Re: Keynote or State of the Union...

I think a lot of people on the left (of which Im one) seem to misunderstand that the US on the whole is a conservative country. The Democrats have to not only try to slowly introduce reforms, but they also need to continue to get elected to do so. I think its naive in the extreme to think they woul...

Re: Apple iPad. Meh.

With a little imagination it's not hard to see where this can go, a speedier processor in the pad, bigger screen estate.

Re: Apple iPad. Meh.

I know what I wanted to see, and what I hope will eventually be offered in the not-too-distant future: A tablet that runs on a real OS, with real connectivity, stylus and touchscreen driven, front-facing camera and high quality built-in mic, with kickass multi-media quality speakers for starters. I...
