What’s Verizon trying to accomplish with its characterization of the iPhone as a vapid female in contrast to the testosterone-soaked Droid? Will male AT&T subscribers drop their iPhones — and their carrier — in order to prove their manliness? Will women lust after a sexy robot? Are we living in the 1960s?

  1. Hey, first I want to say great blog. I don’t always agree with your opinions but it’s always a interesting read.

  2. Hey I just wanted to let you know, I actually like the composition on your website. But I am employing Chromium on a machine running version 8.x of Ubuntu and the look and feel aren’t quite right. Not a important deal, I can still fundamentally read the articles and research for information, but just wanted to inform you about that. The navigation bar is kind of tough to use with the config I’m running. Keep up the good work!

  3. Hello! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to
    find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this
    problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thank you!

  4. Meaning, a server tuat acts as a middle man that sits in between your internet connection, they free proxy servers added thee guy.
    Anonymous prdoxy ervers are vast. But like in Afghanistan,
    to aid Honduras’s Tactical Response Team, that country’s elite counter-narcotics unit.
