lp60068 Sports impact (236 comments)

This could have a big impact in the sports world. I wonder if Peyton Manning could have played in 2011 if he had access to this type of treatment.

Apple Balks, Finally Relents, At Possible User Queries of Dictionary App

lp60068 Re:Just who do they think they are anyway? (259 comments)

They should apply a common sense standard - can you look up the word in the printed version of the dictionary? Then let it in. When I was a kid I looked dirty words in the dictionary. So what? Why do we continue to underestimate kids? In grade school we were using 4 letter words all the time and tried to come up with different combinations. lol - we never got the words from the dictionary, but from others using the words.

Vista Not Playing Nice With FPS Games

lp60068 New Computers get Vista (437 comments)

The problem is trying to buy a new computer without getting Vista. My dad needs a new computer and plays strategy/role playing games and how do I explain to him that his high-end Dell computer with Vista is going to crash playing some games. Talk about bleeding edge.

Now, like an Ivy League school, it is starting to look for more well-rounded candidates, like those who have published books or started their own clubs." It seems they realized that the best employees don't necessarily have doctorates."
