Dealership Commentator: Tesla's Going To Win In Every State

PRMan Re:Why so much fuss? (153 comments)

PRMan Re:Why didn't it fail? (194 comments)

you should NOT use them to store money

I disagree. I made 10,000% interest last year. I think I'll continue to store my money in there.

PRMan Re:TI calculators are not outdated, just overprice (359 comments)

PRMan writes "TGDaily reports that Sony is coming out with a new "unbreakable" security measure for CE devices called CLEFIA. One can only imagine what new horrors Sony has in store for trouncing the Fair Use rights of its customers, while protecting the interests of the MAFIAA.
