I don't think desperate is the word in this case.

The show is doing well enough that it's a safe bet. Anything they replace it with would be just as likely to do worse. This was the smart decision...

If by strange, you mean perfectly normal, then you'll have reality. I'm pretty sure they've all but greenlit season 2, since they specifically called the finale a "season finale". Trust me, it's...

The biggest problem I encounter with targeted ads is that they either target me stuff I already bought or target me for something they think is related to what I'm interested in.

It's stupid. I...

Yeah....keep dreaming....

Those devices have zero to do with the state of Microsoft, except for the phones - and it's not any particular one, either.

For what it's worth, this isn't the fault of the advertiser or the drug company.

Federal law requires them to list all those side effects. Stupid government interference. It's like the old days...

Considering I almost missed the banding when I was distracted by the worse issue of the edge darkening, I would definitely call that "slight".

They sell pretty much all their distributions with a 3000 copy limit. If what you said was true, that number would be larger or smaller based on researched demand for a particular film.

I should amend my comment to say I hate seeing unsafe driving practices in ads extolling the virtues of safety, family, etc.

Right, but when it cuts to the wide and the car is just reaching the sidewalk, it's clearly already rolling, not just starting to move. That means she went from further up the driveway, across the...

Correct, the speed does drop to lower tiers after a few GB, but so do most of the high priced plans, too.

Hogwash.

If the ad results in a person not buying their service, it does more harm than good. The purpose of the ad isn't awareness: it's to make you consider the product when the opportunity to...

I pay roughly half that amount for Virgin Mobile, which uses Sprint's system. I don't get unlimited minutes, but I do for data. Since I seldom talk on any phone, much less my cell, that fits well for...
