Jun 30th 2010 1:50PM SMS definitely allows 160 characters, not 140. You may have mentioned 140 because I believe that is the Twitter limit and you were confused?
Nov 15th 2009 10:17PM Although I agree with you for the most part, you should get your facts straight. The woman who sued McDonalds did not "become a millionaire," she walked with $640,000. Not a small sum of money, but not the millions people think.
Dec 27th 2008 11:30PM Yeah this is a great game but EA really needs to step it up. There should be some sort of 'snap' when laying out roads, power lines, and water. And some features just aren't there. For example, they keep telling me to build a stadium, yet I can't find a stadium in my build options. Also, it is very glitchy as you had said. Also, the transportation problem is ridiculous. It is impossible to satisfy their transportation needs and I don't even see them using it. And the bridges/power lines over water problem is just annoying.But I dont have a problem with the making thousands a month when I should clearly have a deficit. I have even lowered the interest rates to 0% and managed to make a bunch of money. And can anyone figure out how to get the seaport working?
Dec 25th 2008 10:39PM I live in the San Fernando Valley, HUGE suburb right north of Los Angeles. And although I agree that we should use a much larger percentage of revenues for the high speed train, and better public transportation, to say that a $1 tax per gallon on gasoline is the way to do it is just incorrect. See, America's, and more specifically, California's transportation problem (epidemic) is a catch 22. People don't want to use the public transportation (metro) system because it is too unreliable and dirty, and the public transportation system is unreliable and dirty because no one wants to use it. Trust me, I hated the wastefulness of driving 2 miles (3-5 minutes) to school when there was a metro bus that took that route every day. But sometimes, the bus would just not come, or be 30-45 minutes late, or, worst of all, be 20 minutes EARLY. But there is hope, LA's new (2 years I think) Orange line connecting the southern San Fernando Valley with the Red line, which goes into Los Angeles and connects to the other lines has been an overwhelming success. I'm pretty sure it has already become profitable, and it has far surpassed expectations. I think (hope) this was an awakening to LA, and California that, when implemented correctly, that a public transportation system can be highly effective.
Dec 25th 2008 10:00PM oh please, there's no reason it should be acceptable for these laptops to get as hot as they do. I really do feel like I can burn myself on my laptop sometimes, even on the top next to the trackpad.
Dec 25th 2008 9:51PM I just deleted you guys off my RSS reader -- Now what?
Dec 13th 2008 8:07PM Hi. You're an idiot.
Dec 6th 2008 2:52PM TUAW staff, Madmax has been spamming your (and other Weblog Inc posts) for awhile now. Can you do something to stop this?
Nov 27th 2008 10:05PM RSS feed downloading of torrents is amazing, and I found a sweet program to do this for any torrenting software. It's called Ted. http://www.ted.nu/check it out, it's really simple to use and made my weekly downloads much easier. Wow, I sound like a troll, sorry guys, I'm in no way affiliated with Ted or Transmission, but love both of these.
Nov 27th 2008 4:08PM Just wanted to chime in and say thanks to AB for your great news coverage, and just damn entertaining articles. I'm a daily reader, and this is my number one source of automotive news and information. Not a day goes by that there isn't an article (or few) worth reading on this site. Keep up the good work!
