If Apple can't think of anything better to do with $203 billion dollars in cash reserves, how about an employee bonus program? Get some of that cash back into circulation, with employees buying stuff? Especially, as the article states "Apple may be waiting for tax changes in the United States before it puts more of its cash to use though. Maestri noted that $181 billion of its cash -- nearly 90% of the entire iMountain -- is held offshore."
Apple is hoarding money -- even as it buys back stock and pays a dividend. But most of its cash is sitting overseas due to taxes. Apple has even gone into debt to avoid bringing cash back to the U.S.

The union might create differences between schools? The union? Not the size of the school or the value of the TV contract, or any number of things? That's remarkably stupid.
The labor dispute goes to the heart of college sports, where universities reap billions of dollars by relying on unpaid athletes

Decriminalization makes sense to me. Of course, I think the same thing is true for drugs. Why is it illegal? Because it's bad for me? Because it's dangerous? Because it's immoral?

I didn't know this existed. I think I'll try it on my HP Touchpad. The 5.1 ROM I'm running has been kind of unstable, maybe this will help.

Sort of part co-op, part government kind of thing.

I thought it was interesting reading how other people find new music. I use allmusic.com references to bands similar to bands I already like, and bandcamp.com, but I also recently started using TuneIn so I can listen to WRNR out of Annapolis again.
Power-pop, alt-country, indie rock, and classical—all queued up with a Spotify playlist.

This last quote strikes me as so very sad, "That’s the most any government can hope for: to conduct war without anyone noticing."
In the 70 years since Hiroshima, scholars have sought to explain why states bomb civilians with apparent impunity

The fact that they passed a law to try and help hide animal abuse makes them unfit to govern.
Idaho law carried a 1-year jail penalty and up to $5,000 fine for first offenders.

Who thinks up this shit? "I know, let's make the criminals pay for their own court costs and put them in jail if they can't pay", where, of course, they certainly can't pay. This is so obviously stupid, how did it become law?
