commented on RIP: Apple iPod™ "Classic"
I have an ipod touch and I love it, music, podcasts and taking pictures. some games for my kids. no monthly bill. since I'm on my sister's family cell phone plan, my cell phone (a "dumb phone") is $15 a month, I make calls and text on it. honestly I don't want the Internet with me everywhere I go
commented on A Word on Thomas Piketty and Kindle
The director of my local library told me that he had heard that students in California hated having to have e-book text books, and grades really suffered. it's not just you, most people need physical references of a paper book to remember things they read about in said book. I seriously doubt e-books will replace paper books for that very reason. It will just be another format, like audio books, which people also used to say would replace paper books.
commented on SL Letter of the Day: Haters Gonna Hate
I have to comment on a very small detail of this letter, I will forever wonder about straight men who don't run out and get a vasectomy has soon as they are sure that they are done having children. I get it if you or your partner aren't sure, but after everyone is sure, it is so great! my husband got one when we were done with the baby making, and this whole big worry/thing to be dealt with was just gone.
