  1. Turns out in the future, Providence is Thunderdome.
  2. Waterplace condo has a third building? What is currently being erected in between there and the Fidelity building?
  3. Does anyone know what they are doing on the grassy knoll across from the mall, next to the station and the Fidelity building? Its all fenced off and rimmed with hay bales..
  4. I find it surprising that some people on here did not know that Apple is the prefered pc/mp3 player/"good" company for the left libbies.. I thought this was widespread knowledge.. My gripes are the same as jims.. I have both a Creative MP3 player and an iPod.. The iPod was a gift, I would not have bought one on my own.. Once it is up and set to my liking, it is far better interface without question.. I have an extensive music collection.. Creative allows easy on easy off, any format, drag and drop like a removable media drive. Apple does not, and now converts your music to ID3 tags aut
  5. Yes, hit the nail on the head there.. Exactly.. Its the perfect storm in Ankdom, as Segal so eloquently called my world..
  6. jim, that is correct.. Not advocating MD.. Just noting the similarities of purported world domination, thats all.. And MikeR, thanks for the detailed description.. Why are "personal music thingies" called MP3 players generally? While on topic: http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/biztech/04/03...e.ap/index.html Interesting.. Antitrust huh.. Wow.. Usually this is a term applied to monopolies or oligopolies.. Must be different in this case, because Apple is not one of those evil things.. Its a socially conscienceious green company.. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070404/ap_on_...een_electroni
  7. I don't hate everyone.. Just monopolies, and people like those who secretly videotaped that Rising Sun lady.. If you fall in the middle of those two extremes, its all good with me for the most part..
  8. Cotuit, you are dead wrong here.. I'm mean when I'm not drunk. I'm upset that Apple appears to be the brand choice of the "look down their nose" set of Whole Food Shoppers, who think they are living a green lifestyle, yet own Apple products.. MikeR, Vista is the next version of Windows.. Same reason for creation as MPEG-4? World domination.. Maybe lied was poor choice of wording.. They "inferred" that these were created in California.. Through case studies, Apple found that the average American has only a 5 word attention span.. But I respect your blind devotion to them.. TheAnk: Wo
  9. All I need to know about Apple is printed on an iPod: "Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China" WHAT?? I bet there are no mirrors in Steve Job's house(s).. Who are they kidding with this.. At least other companies don't lie to their consumers.. Translation: "iPods are made by half naked Chinese minor children working for $0.35 a day, but we want you to feel all fuzzy inside, so we'll lead with 'California'".. What makes iTunes different from Windows? I love how Apple takes the stance that Microsoft is a big baddy, a "monoply" who forces people into being windows drones.. iTu
  10. http://money.cnn.com/2007/04/02/news/compa...sion=2007040309 http://blogs.business2.com/greenwombat/200...pple_ipod_.html Wonder what all you neuvo hippie ipod wearers and iMac buyers think of the fact that Apple is horrific for profit company no better than Microsoft.. All your links on your iMac to cruelty free meat vendors and home grown hydroponic patchouli are housed on a machine that an evil corporation produced... Stings a bit huh.. While on topic, is there anyone more smarmy than The Mac Guy from Mac & PC commercials? I wouldn't buy a Mac just cause that guy is associate
  11. I find the term "majority minority" extremely humorous..
  12. I don't understand.. When a project is built with no affordable housing, people complain.. Forcing out current residents.. When a project is built WITH affordable housing, people complain.. Keeping too many current residents... No matter what, there is no winning.. I'm completely convinced that RI people would like no change whatsoever, forever.. "I change by not changing at all"... The truth of the matter is.. There are poor neighborhoods in Providence.. There are poor neighborhoods in every city.. There are projects all over Providence.. Some are more prominent than others.. T
  13. Autocad (or whatever the kids use nowadays) snobs...
