top Fifteen Years After Autism Panic, a Plague of Measles Erupts
I agree with you but I have to name that medicine. A prescribed allergy medicine that worked very well for me was removed from production (AllerEX). I think the insurance companies pushed for it's removal because of all the lower strength allergy medicines available without a prescription.

The only way to be sure is to buy one, never open it and brick it up in a closet or basement.

One of the issues was the material the guns were made of wasn't detectable by metal detectors. Although I assume the ammo would be.

I have to disagree. Those labels change from family to family and even person to person depending on their personal beliefs, their church, sect and priest/pastor/rabbi
..... Unless you are talking about absolute fundamentalists. The truth is a person's religion gives you a possible look into a person's values but it will not be accurate enough to rely on.

Consider backing into a tree, another car, or other obstacle. Saves on insurance and other extraneous costs.

top Sony Can Update PS3 Firmware Without Permission
Are you Sony's official apologist? Justifying each and every thing removed as opposed to admitting it was removed. I'm sure there was a good reason for Sony but that doesn't mean it is a good reason for the consumer. It was over priced at the beginning, removing features to reduce price is not what people wanted. I have the BC 40gig version which I bought used because I wanted the BC version. I planned on upping the HDD and playing around with Linux on it. No more. While you claim it was horrible I found many people who were really pushing(aka selling) the 'other OS' option even though it didn't access the game engine. Sony still hasn't matched Live for feature which is why they couldn't charge for it. I was hoping Sony Online would advance enough so MS would have to at least reduce the cost of Live. Sony can't even manage a consistent background download yet and we are stuck with a two step process to install demos. Now they have the ability to remove any features they want. Looking at Sony's history of removing features for what ever reason, I think people have a reason to get a bit peeved at them.
top Verizon CEO Says "We Will Hunt Heavy Users Down"
Interesting read. I still don't consider the US #1 in broadband. I do defend it when people compare it to the faster much smaller in terms of sq mileage and people countries. I'm sure Verizon goes many steps further to qualify their self claim of #1.
I had a Comcast rep come to my door just last week asking/begging me to come back to Comcast/xfinty. One of the many reasons why I switched was the cap Comcast was enforcing where I hadn't heard about Verizon's until now. My usage while not torrent heavy it is still active and I work from home 3 days a week so I would be concerned on any limitation. I have a 20/20 package and that seemed to floor him. "20 up?" he asked.
top GameStop Sued Over Lack of DLC For Used Games
Wow, that is a pretty fancy logical fallacy there. There is no reason for customer to use the money on a game at GS or for on another game that is from the same publisher. Hell they may get wise and buy a used games instead. GS makes money off of used games, publisher do not which is why they are trying to use expiring DLC to sweeten a new deal and to go completely DL games which eliminates the used game market and GS from the picture. Publishers would jump for job if the used game market dried up. Of course those who buy used games would then decided whether to buy new, pirate the game or move on and do something else. Seems to me that the publishers can't come out and kill the used market directly or they will piss off a lot of people into not buying anything.
Law suit worthy or even justified? Doubt it.
top Uniforms for the Help Desk
Usually these type of changes occur from a magazine an exec read or an expensive consultant who recently visited. Putting uniforms on does promote unity in your group and separates you from the other employees. To the same degree plenty of companies want employees to do the tie thing because it promotes professionalism. If they are paying for your uniforms then by all means let them but remind them of the 'cons' so management goes into this with eyes wide open.
Cons: Eliminates individuality, puts up an artificial wall between them and other parts of the company who may not look at the uniforms in a positive fashion and may demoralize those in staff.
I won't list the pro side because management already figured out those.
If they try to put your name on the shirts, look for a new career.
