Sorry if this has been already stated:   Ah, the power of Dollar Cost Averaging... :)  
Parallel Kingdom at one time relied on OpenStreetMap or another user-editable map database. Unfortunately, players began adding fake communities to the system so they could create cities in out of the way locations. They moved away from the database because of this.
So, High School students are now required to learn how to create exploits to take over computer systems?!   Just for fun:   1. Sony's Ultraviolet registration requires using Java 6. I've been having trouble installing Java 6 while Java 7 is still installed. I'll probably have to pull it out to do the installation. Oh, and since I don't have a *disk* to go with my copy of Mountain Lion, I'll have to find the installer someplace else.   2. I'm aware of a company that...
  And well educated. I'm surprised more companies aren't pouring into Ireland, to the chagrin of the Brits next door who complain about the taxes they're not getting (NOT the JOBS!).
I presume Apple hasn't paid a number of people a sufficient amount of money.   I'm also not sure how Italian consumers are served by shutting down a company for 30 days, thus making it impossible for Apple to give the warranty service at issue.

(and, yes, she takes that tablet on the road). FYI,...
  Every try taking an external monitor with you to all corners of your home? How about the ballgame? Or to lunch with a client? Or at the client's home? I've done all four.   I've carried a 17" Apple 'Book (a 2003 G4 Powerbook, and still a 2008 MacBook Pro) for almost nine years. Heck, the PowerBook is still officially in my inventory, although on loan. I am looking to replace mine.   Oh, and to the folks who keep thinking that more can be squeezed onto a Retina Display,...
  iPads and other iOS devices are making inroads in enterprise, too. IBM consultants may be able to push them back with corporate fatwas, though.
So sad to see Macs listed on a Windows 3.1 (if we're lucky) screen...
