Link to data showing military spending at #6 or #7, because this shows you are WAY off in that regard.

Google Android — a Universe of Incompatible Devices

MrWa Re:Just like desktop linux. (636 comments)

You need time scales on your three points between unsupported version release and latest iteration.

When leading edge, early adopters complain and point this out as a problem, I think you can assume that mass market consumers are going to be pissed.

The Music Industry's Crisis Writ Large

MrWa Inforgraphic needs some help... (554 comments)

Hard to see TOTAL sales, across all mediums. I wonder how much is attributed to format change and if there is base volume of music sales that industry will settle at, now there isn't a new format for everyone to go buy (LP $ -> Cassette $ -> CD $ -> digital FREE).

Obama Administration Defends Warrantless Wiretapping

MrWa Don't like it but... (788 comments)

Sure, it's one thing to take a position when campaigning but now that he is in office and this decision was made you need to ask yourself if a) you think Obama is the same as Bush or b) after taking ownership of the problem they found something that, if released during a trial, actually would be a problem larger than defending the companies that cooperated?

My longest stretch without sleep (catnaps count) ...

MrWa Re:about (605 comments)

In college I got paid an extraordinarily small amount of money to participate in a sleep deprivation test. 72 hrs without sleep, stimulants supplied as needed. At the end of the 72 hrs, I was then connected to a bundle of monitoring wires, hit with more stimulants and placed in a sensory deprivation tank. I do not know how long I was in the tank, I do not remember being removed from the tank. I also never found out what they were trying to prove! It was most definitely not worth the money.

Hi. I would like to apologize for everyone that read this post. As the administrator of said sleep deprivation test it was a mistake to allow the participant to access to the internet while still inside the sensory deprivation tank. Please do not inform Tehrasha that he was never removed from the tank.

Thank you.
