Re: IPhone vs. Blackberry?

Though not much of a concern for Hawaii residents, cold winter weather can make it nigh impossible for the gloved set to fiddle with their iPhones. What to do? Get a proper stylus, of course:...

Re: Swine Flu

That is one glaring point you were wrong on and are still wrong. Show us the documentation that the Spanish Flu of 1918 had a propensity to affect the young. And by "young" I'm sure you mean those...

Re: Swine Flu

Exactly how is the 2009 Swine Flu like the Spanish Flu of 1918, other than being of the same "H1N1" subtype? As MyopicJoe correctly stated, the Spanish Flu primarily killed off young adults while our...

Re: Mortgage Nightmare and a Plea for Help

Red face Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

It's amusing that you, who complained that I supposedly weakened my position on the RIAA decision by name calling are now resorting to making inane and hysterically shrill demands. "Gramps" is an...

Re: I'm Back

Welcome back, Gramps! Cyn was just saying last week that she missed you. HT lacks something when our favorite resident statesman isn't posting regularly.

Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

I guess you're still having trouble following my posts. It's painfully obvious that "putting the scews on" is the consequence of the RIAA's actions, not their motivation. This indicates to me that...

Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

Dang!

And keep in mind the RIAA stopped suing individual "pirates" back in Dec/Jan. I guess they wanted to make a statement with a parting shot? So much for showing some retroactive love.
