Eating lettuce is over three times worse in greenhouse gas emissions

I'm curious what farming method this was based on?

Organic?

Intensive land based?

In a hydroponic greenhouse?

Not that I truly care, bloody hate the stuff.

This is been going on for close on a decade now. I threatened to sue them in the 1st year of business as Orange broadband over failure to deliver on what was sold.

They should just give up. If the un-help desk were as utterly shit as back then, god help anyone still with them.

How to improve Yahoo?

Stop making it the daily sport / OK! of the internet.

Quit with the massive flash ads

Quit with the obsession with z-list talentless celebs

Stop with pushing fad diets

Put email back to being email, and not some sort of spamvertisment mechanism

Search that actually works (and in email as well)

Reduce the number of pictures on the home page, it's like a 90's Geocities site (yes the irony isn't lost)

In other words, stop being the gutter press peddler of the internet and attempt to be a little more serious.

Re: Real sample of revenue for you

"Ads on TV and radio pay really high rates but music streaming is a pittance."

Apples and Pears.

Ad's are using the music to sell a product to make money.

Streaming is for consumption.

In IT, the equivalent are business programmes costing far more than the home editions.

Re: OK, so how does the glass "work"?

As it said, the top layer is hardened and the next is flexible (they are not likely to tell you how it's made exactly).

We had some armored glass once in a factory I used to work in. The boss spent a fortune putting bars on the glass and as the 2nd from last one was being fitted the landlord started to laugh to himself and right in front of the boss, pick up a lump hammer out of the boss, smacked the glass and we watched it simply bounce off.

And that was almost 15 years ago.

Here's an example:

So you would have MS layout and design for say Skype or office, but then a totally different layout for Android versions of these. You'd have say "People" for all your contacts, social media etc in MS mode, and 3 different apps on Android.

Yes that would so well.

What? Apart from the gibberish that I struggled to read:

"personally I think car manufacturers, should look at making beautiful cars, and stop with the macho Bullshit, SUV's & Hot hatchbacks I'm looking at you !!!!!"

So what is an AC Cobra, E-type, Austin Healey 3000 and Ferrari 250 GTO? All could be classed a pretty, but also macho, due to their performance.

Is a Lancia Stratos OK, but not a Lancia Delta Integrale?

It's not a fix.

As with ALL goods sold, it's what people are willing to pay.

A house it not worth £5,000,000, just for few bricks in an overcrowded, polluted place like London, but if people are willing to pay it, the that's how much it's costs.

If you don't like paying £10 for a razor blade, then don't. If everyone doesn't pay it, they have two choices, don't sell it, or reduce the price.

I'm afraid this is true for absolutely everything in life, but sometimes it's a life and death choice, so we are often "forced" to pay the going rate.

"Dave, When you've finished singing the praises of Antitrust Bill's vanishing tiny refund from the GAZZZZEEEEEELIONS his vampire squid extorted from the planet, you should retroactively re-evaluate your apostrophe abuse protocols."

Try adding a comma after the word refund. It makes it so much easier to read, without the need for oxygen afterwards.
