    ...as long as the nature of the market still allows for that, and

    we've had cloud based tv since the 40's, this simply gives you full
    control over all content, is digital, and allows you to time shift.

    not bad for $99.

    Ah, what? The MacBook is the best selling laptop in the industry, so it
    clearly needs to be in cellular phone groups as Apple takes over all
    communication markets.

    Apple is at the core of all phones, that's how the company got started,
    so learn about the future, don't try and push it away. You can get up to
    speed here:

    http://www.apple.com/macbookair/

    http://www.apple.com/macbook/

    http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/

    http://www.apple.com/iphone/

    Richard, once you move up to iPhones and Macs, you'll see what the world
    is all about.

    [snippage]

    Richard and all the folks in the non-Mac newsgroups, on behalf of folks
    who do use Macs and/or actually participate honestly in the mac
    newsgroups, I can assure you that Oxford is not one of us. He's just
    a troll and, sadly, a somewhat successful one.

    Please use your killfile on any thread he starts. Begging him
    to stop will certainly not have the effect you'd hope for.

    He's an embarassment.

    Admittedly, there are folks who respond to him just as idiotically
    and trollishly. They are also an embarassment.

    In short, he's a troll. Killfile him and move on. Please.

    Well, it *would* be the easiest, if only it could automatically figure out what it *is* you want. Last I looked, though, you still have to jump through figurative hoops to tell it :-) . And not just *any* dock will do, either.

    The Prez, at the request of his masters - the international bankers -
    has been getting us into and out of wars for a long time without the
    help of congress. Most people just have a short memory and believe
    the media propaganda that it started with Geo.W.Bush (and continued
    with Obama.)
