I can't understand this DoJ ruling. The store sets the price of the book? Not in the book business.

Apple wanted to keep the price of songs at .99. The music companies wanted variable prices....

Thank you, Sony BMG (Big M---F--- Gangsters), for ensuring that I will never again BUY a CD until the crack arrives. What for? I want the song on my iPod.

My only problem was that I installed the "updated" Application Enhancer before I did an archive and install. It's compatible with Tiger, but not with the installation. It screws up Mail totally....

But what about the PSP? 34,840 Views / 1,179 Replies  
It may or may not be a good game machine. I don't personally give a good g-d, as games are, to me, a monstrous bore. Others differ.

But this is being called, in the pop press, an "iPod killer,"...

Disk corruption 9,654 Views / 57 Replies

Yamaha speakers 11,452 Views / 72 Replies  
I'd be surprised if Yamaha speakers were to my taste. Japan for electronics, Britain and the US for speakers. Every Japanese system I've ever heard has been thin, tinny and overly forward.

Never buy Rev B either 12,447 Views / 111 Replies
