Get Ready For a Streaming Music Die-Off
But then those people in other countries don't have access to the streaming services offered to US customers... as a Canadian, i don't know Pandora, i don't know Spotify and i have no reason to try Rhapsody... we are simply met with a page that checks our IP address and says that we can't use their services. IMO the biggest problem with their service is the small amount of people that can use the service when if the record companies wouldn't stop them, they could simply market their service to anyone with an internet connection...

Hybrid Car Owners Not Likely To Buy Another Hybrid
I'd buy a diesel again in a heart beat. I get 40 miles to the gallon city in my Volkswagen Sportswagen. And diesel is 30 cents cheaper a gallon than petrol.
People who use the word "petrol" often have a larger size gallon than people who say "gas."
If you are one of those people then you are getting closer to 35 miles to the gallon of most slashdot readers.
That's why the rest of the world uses the Liter, no confusion about it!
