The catch is if you want the latest iPhone 5S w/ 64gb, you have to purchase it from Apple sans plan.   Again, see above.....
Yep...full price. $800+ if I remember correctly. By the way, you have to cut your own SIM from the one they give you. You use a tool that's basically like a hole punch. It's easy to do but just be warned. The workers at Walmart aren't all up to speed on this.
This should put a little downward pricing pressure on Walmart's value cellular plan, Straight Talk. 3GB at high speed per month, then throttles down. Unlimited text/talk. The bill, with taxes, is under $50/month and you can buy 3/6/12 month packages for discounts. The catch is if you want the latest iPhone 5S w/ 64gb, you have to purchase it from Apple sans plan.   My beef is the high-end phones are often left out of these plans.
My heart fluttered. Love Costco. Maybe some pressure will come to bear on the cellular plans.
The narcissism is beyond anything you can imagine. People sit at SB for hours on end, working on huge spreads of god knows what. It's not unusual to see one person sitting at a table for four, papers spread out, laptop atop the entire mess. A home away from home. Hard-working people with important jobs, obviously.   I'm being facetious but I wonder if these are the same people who jog on major roads in the rain...
Or you could just count your reps to get a general sense of whether or not you need to add weight. Then use the mirror to guide your progress. I'm all for tech, but we're getting to the point where we are demanding less and less from our own gray matter to do very simple things. Working out gives its own feedback. It's not a bad thing to also work out your brain. Memorizing weights/reps is fairly unchallenging.
One can hope that since Rand and Reid are behind this, Obama won't turn this proposal into a class warfare opportunity. I wish he would have used the bully pulpit to champion companies and the economy and people working hard to become well off. Once the liberal press gets ahold of this, we are going to hear nonstop how poor people pay all the taxes and the rich don't pay their fair share.
 I'll buy a ticket to ZoetWorld....much better system than what we have now. BTW, simplified/flat/two-tier tax systems usually have a 'rebate.' The taxes don't kick in until some agreed upon amount that basically exempts the poor from paying in. I'm not as knee-jerk sensitive to killing any idea because it will kill off the poor amongst us. There will always be programs and healthy debate about what to do about any system that increases hardship on those on the lower...
I'd do a simplified two-tier flat tax. I would be carving into regulations with the aim of getting govt. out of the way of capitalism. No complicated VAT or weird mumbo-jumbo that no one understands. No need for accountants. And, bonus, very difficult to politicize. The labyrinth tax code gives rise to political favors and endless tinkering as one party or another shoves benefits to their base of voters (such as this suggested tax holiday).   Get politicians out of it....
I'd offer a special discount on taxes to get this money back to our shores. Maybe it's time to look at lowering marginal rates and broadening the tax base. Simplify the code and regulations. Make it fair and easy. Make it business friendly. Then watch companies disengage from avoidance activities and worry about creating better goods and services.   Even liberal Steve Jobs decried the unfriendly business climate. Businesses respond to incentives. If we want things done...
