30 Blu-ray Discs In a 1.5TB MiniDisc-Like Cassette
Every business that needed to store anything over 5MB had a Zip drive. and that's every business I consulted for in the late 90s.
So maybe not every desktop but every office or 1 out of 5 computers had them.
Former TSA Administrator Speaks
The problem isn't Kip Hawley as much as it is Janet Napolitano. She is ineffective as as the head of the DHS. She is reactionary and not a visionary nor a leader. She was horrible as a governor, she is horrible as the head of the DHS. She needs to go somewhere and put her education to use instead of riding on the coattails of others who are also no good at their job.
Ask Slashdot: Open Source Tax Software?
That's what I attribute it to however, the ease of Tax Act obviously wasn't so easy for this analytical mind.
I answered all the questions and had nothing left over and just ended up wasting 2 hours on it.
Ask Slashdot: Open Source Tax Software?
I tried Tax Act and they said I had to pay $200 to the Feds. Went to HR Block and I'm getting a $900 refund.
How is that possible?

Can Microsoft Afford To Lose With Windows 8?
Win98SE was the best of the bunch. Hardly a pile of dung.
2K was the best of the NT platform. XP did good at merging the two but was a steaming pile of dung.

The Specter of Gasoline At $5 a Gallon
Exactly. Those who say the US can use mass transit have never been here.
San Francisco is not like Denton, is not like New York City, is not like Kansas City, is not like Conshohoken, is not like Phoenix, is not like Columbus, etc.....
You also can't use mass transit in farming communities.
The iPhone Is a Nightmare For Carriers
If you already have AT&T service, like Go-Phone, you can easily switch the cards out and have a pay as you go plan with the iPhone.
I had full service with Cingular, AT&T bought them, Switched to a pay-as-you-go and ended up paying only $25 a quarter for about 3 years.
Got a Motorola Karma for a year - just by switching out the card. Brother in law gave me his old iPhone and did the same.
Ended up going on the road more so I paid into a service plan.

Ron Paul Suggests Axing 5 U.S. Federal Departments (and Budgets)
That's a straw man argument you're setting up there as you're probably not well informed on those departments and how efficient/inefficient they are.
I can attest that the Dept of Education has done nothing but drag down our collective educational system as a country.
Ever since it's inception and well into it's programs, there has been more money spent on underperforming schools and children than ever before.The return promised has never been fulfilled. We cured polio, smallpox, and sent men to the moon without the Department of Education. We haven't done anything but drop in the educational rankings worldwide.
Talk to a teacher. See how their hands are tied due to regulation this and regulation that. Teachers that want to teach do not want the Department of Education. Teachers that have tenure and like a paycheck want it to stay.
Getting rid of those departments doesn't mean the end of it. Get real and intelligent. They're not going to just wither up and go away. The onus shifts to those who have a dog in the fight.
