HappyCycling Re:Despicable (554 comments)

How would the child that age be sent home? Walking? Obviously the parents had to be contacted. I'm sure they were told something.

Why even drink the milk from another animal? There are many alternatives that aren't full of growth-hormones such as soy and almond.

Do Tools Ever 'Die?'

HappyCycling Very easy answer (615 comments)

The shoe-fitting fluoroscope.

Basically a box that you put your feet into where x-rays are fired upon your feet and you can look into the viewing ports on the top and see the bones in your feet for the purpose of getting correctly sized shoes.

It was used during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s and was subsequently discontinued after employees experienced radiation burns from the constant exposure.

iPhone 4 News Roundup

HappyCycling Re:Here's your roundup (568 comments)

If the industry follows suit then that's what the market is demanding. It sucks that the idea of an open platform isn't what people want, but that's the way economies work.

What iOS 4 Does (and Doesn't Do) For Business

HappyCycling Re:Multitasking as defined by Apple (253 comments)

Yes, the apps will do those things that you listed, but only if the developer enables them on the apps and pushes out an update. As of the launch of iOS 4.0 yesterday, there are very few apps that take advantage of those features.

BPA Leaches From Polycarbonate Bottles Into Humans

HappyCycling Nalgene (251 comments)

Nalgene, one of, if not the biggest producers of the 'indestructable' plastic bottles with BPA, still does not acknowledge the health detriments even though they stopped producing those bottles. Probably because of liability reasons...

AT&T Vs. Apple Store At the iPhone Launch

HappyCycling Satisfaction (375 comments)

I'm not sure what market everyone else was in, but in my small Tennessee town, it couldn't have been a smoother purchase. I walked into the AT&T store Saturday afternoon at 3:30pm, they had 4 8gb, 4 4gb iPhones in-stock. I needed to transfer my number form my dad's account (I've been paying the bill for the last 2 years) and possibly pay a deposit for a new contract under my name with my old number. It took me about 15 minutes on the phone with a transfer rep. and less than 5 minutes to confirm everything was correct (with no deposit) to get in and out. Got home, activated the phone in about 5 minutes; everything works perfectly with my new awesome phone. They couldn't have been more helpful at the AT&T store; looks like a case of YMMV.
