Major wireless carriers all slapped with text-messaging class-action lawsuit (Engadget)

May 20th 2008 12:45PM "Dave, I suggest you not act like you have multiple degrees in economics or are an economic historian, lest you look like a fool."

Funny I'm standing here suggesting the same thing to you.

"Now lets look at Europe. Europe, which certainly is more socialist than the US"
Correct (for once)

"There is very little economic progress occuring in Europe"
More so than there is in the US, and by MILES AND MILES, and the lack thereof is due the the strength of the Euro moreso than its socialist leanings - in fact I can't believe I called Europe socialists in any way shape or form, only when compared to the US, a country run and wholly owned by corporations does Europe look socialist. Its like comparing a typical cloudy evening to the black hole and saying its actually pretty light

"This is because of the poor GDP growth and oppressive unemployment"
No we just established its because of the strength of the currency.


"The US's current slump is due to a market correction caused by a housing bubble and credit problems."

Partly yes, but not entirely. The US economy was heading for a collapse regardless and the credit crunch only acted as a catalyst. The truth is that there are economic cycles, and every country or region experiences them.

Except in some fucked up country, people like you are brainwashed to believe that everytime another country is in recession (however slight) its caused by socialist values and everytime your country collapses its someone else's fault (yea lets blame china or the market, or banks or the credit crunch)

"In order to solve these credit problems, the Fed, very shortsightedly in my opinion, has precipitously dropped interest rates"
The fed is run by some incredibly talented people who have proved their talen in their past work leading upto their current jobs. So forgive me if I take their predictions over some bum on the internet - after all its easy to criticize.

Adobe Creative Suite 3 unboxing video (Download Squad)

Apr 25th 2007 6:04PM Thanks for the unboxing video.

Whilst a minimalist packaging is somewhat understandable, I would have preferred more of a QUALITY product packaging considering the many hundreds of £££s spent on this.

2G iPod shuffle review round-up (Engadget)

"You people don't get it. These things are meant for running and the gym. If some of you pasty-faced nerds would leave your computers and XBoxes for a few minutes, maybe you'd see the utility in a tiny, durable, wearable, AAC-playing device."

Listen you dumb piece of shitheaded douchebag, the Ipod Nano was created for the people who go to the gym - hence the nano armband.

And for the record, coming onto engadget and calling people nerds makes you look like the biggest freak of all the posters.

In closing I suggest you go crawl in that corner and never try to socialise again!
