Re: I wonder how he feels

My thoughts precisely- I understand the suit alone cost $200,000. Wouldn't this money be better spent saving the planet?

Dr No, Thunderball, Casino Royale? Vote now for the best Bond film

Re: I really want to like the Daniel Craig films

"Casino Royale (Daniel Craig) is an hour long poker game because the book is largely a poker game."

You might want to reread the book- it wasn't poker.

Apple squeaks over revenue estimates, misses earnings target

Andrew Moore

Re: I would say one thing...

That's the idea though- they make you pay for the full-whack RAM and HHD options up front rather than hope you will upgrade them in the future (in which case they hope you will just buy a new Macbook)

I'm guessing that they are still using goat entrails in order to make their predictions.

Dalton's Bond...

"Dalton's, particularly, tried to get closer to Fleming's idea of a darker, more conflicted man."

One of the reasons I've always favoured him over the other Bonds. Dalton played the character a lot closer to how Fleming wrote him. I think License To Kill is the best example of Bond as written, fiercely loyal, cold blooded and willing to go to any lengths to achieve his objective.

Bloomberg's bomb: How SEC shredded Facebook's pre-IPO claims

Re: Caveat emptor only applies to a degree

But in this case, you could see that it was a Morris Minor, everybody in the industry said it was a Morris Minor. The only people that claimed it was a Porsche was the owner and a lot of 'financial analysts'. Now if you decide to go with the biased opinion rather than the informed one, then you shouldn't really be surprised when a Morris Minor ends up on your front doorstep.
