  • The hope was that IF Hamas won, they would moderate their positions.  That did not happen. Then there was the way that Hamas seized power in Gaza, which was hardly democratic.  Hamas terrorists ...
  • If the Palestinians in Gaza want to be left alone, they should try leaving the neighbors (Israel and Egypt) alone.  If you fire rockets into your neighbor's cities, in the hopes of killing their ...
  • The United States is not defaulting on its debt payments.  The net debt keeps going up (more and more borrowing), but we make a point of paying off the principal and interest on individual notes ...
  • Replied in SD slot on MBP
    There are multiple standards in the "Secure Digital card" family.  If we limit ourselves to the full-size cards, and ignore the relatively rare I/O ("SDIO") cards, these are: (1) SD: 1 MB to 2 GB. ...
  • That machine meets the minimum system requirements on the Adobe site. I would strongly recommend that you custom-order one with 8 GB of RAM (+$100).  RAM is soldered-in on the Airs, so it's better ...
  • Replied in MI
    That's nothing.  Just go outside and start throwing bread crumbs in the air, and you will very soon discover that those five seagulls are merely the advance scouts for a vast seagull air force.
  • You're delusional if you think that either Spain or Turkey is going to rush forth and sacrifice its own economy just so that Greece can get completely out of paying Greece's debt.
  • I think you'll need to ask that in another thread.  This one's about to hit the reply limit and auto-lock.
  • Replied in SD slot on MBP
    If your MBP does not have a SDXC slot, but you are running Mac OS X 10.6.8 ("Snow Leopard") or higher, you could get an external USB SDXC reader.  Some of those are small and lightweight and would ...
  • Russia promised in writing to respect Ukraine's sovereignty, back when Ukraine transferred its nuclear weapons to Russia.  How well did that work out for Ukraine? The leaders of Greece would have ...
  • Hardly.  If Greece were to take your advice, and act as a total deadbeat, removing Greece from the Eurozone would only strengthen the Euro, as the remaining Eurozone participants would all have a ...
  • The only redistribution I saw going on was during the savings and loan scandal – and then again during the 2008 Wall Street meltdown.  Then both Bush and Obama were eager to rush enormous sums of ...
  • Replied in You mean...
    Here in the United States, you can. Banks not only allow it, but use teaser rates on balance transfers to try to get people to open new credit card accounts (the better to take business from other ...
  • A dog sees a sign in a photography store window:  "HELP WANTED.  Must type 100wpm.  Must be bilingual.  Equal Opportunity Employer." The dog grabs the sign in its mouth and walks in.  "You can't ...
  • Replied in SD slot on MBP
    Check that the card is not a SDXC card. I believe that the slots on older MacBooks are just for SD cards or SD and SDHC cards, not for the newer and higher-capacity SDXC ones.
  • Replied in The Holocaust
    Here is what a dictionary has to say about it.  (This isn't the whole entry; just enough to illustrate the point.) It would be accurate to say that there is only one species of human beings still ...
  • What's sad is that even after the Holocaust, the Soviet gulags, the Cambodian "killing fields", the Hutu Power killings in Rwanda, and the ethnic cleansing in Darfur, the world still allows the ...
  • Interesting.  I hadn't realized that it was a Court decision, as opposed to an act of Congress, that let the banks run wild ...
  • Once upon a time - in the 1970s - there were usury laws. Then Carter came in, and 18%+ inflation, and the banks lobbied to get the usury laws relaxed or repealed on the basis that the ceilings were ...
  • The post you are replying to is a month old - as is all of this thread up until the "spam" post.  So I suspect the OP has already made up his mind on the choice of drive, one way or another.
