Except the case shouldn't have even gone to the jury after it was discovered that the people suing were improper members of the Class and had actually purchased their iPods on dates outside the province of the lawsuit, making the entire thing bogus in the first place.   
What a surprise that you feel that way. I know I won't change your mind, but companies have contract workers to get out of paying them decent wages and benefits.   I worked for a large media company which also employed contract workers for the security force and for cleaning.    I then moved on to another gig.   After another company left the building, they got rid of most of the contracted security staff.     Some months later, I was shopping downtown and someone called...
 Being gay is not a crime in the South.   Some States do still have laws against sodomy, but they're not enforced.    And while we don't yet have a national law against firing gay employees and 29 States don't have laws explicitly banning the firing of gay employees because of their sexual orientation, according to Snopes: "While the twenty-nine states...may currently lack statewide laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, it is not true that all...
It's a non-issue?  There are 50 new cases each day in Liberia alone. What was inflated by the media was the danger to U.S. citizens and blame for Obama in the way it was handled. It's important enough because volunteers put their own lives at serious risk by rising to the challenge of fighting this disease.   Especially after doctors and other health workers starting getting the disease themselves.    And even if the disease was already cured (and it's not), the people who...
It would encourage sales of larger or heavier items by people who live farther away, especially since this is the only store in Brooklyn.From a shareholder's perspective, accessible parking will drive far more sales than a multi-million $ glass staircase or special imported granite floors.And inherently, when Apple opens a mall store, they are providing parking since a share of their rent goes to supporting the parking facilities.
That's exactly where they need to be, although I bet there was more foot traffic at the downtown Brooklyn location that Marty Markowitz, the former Brooklyn borough President, was trying to get them to open a store at.   Williamsburg is both 'hipster' and filled with an ever-growing population of people with money, since every new housing project (and there is construction everywhere) is quite expensive, whether rental, condo or co-op.       The downside is poor access...
 Multi-culturarism is a good thing.   We live in a connected world.   If you are unwilling to participate in relationships with people of all races and backgrounds, you're artificially limiting yourself.    You really think African-Americans have a lot of choices as to where to live?   You think they choose to live in ghettos only because other Black people live there?   Black people live where they live either because they can't afford anywhere else (which is also...
Wait a minute.   Your family members lost their houses because they took on a mortgage greater than they could afford and you're blaming the Government?   Most people who blame the Government are political conservatives.   Don't Conservatives preach personal responsiblity?   The rise in home prices has nothing to do with someone's ability to pay the mortgage if they're already in the home.   At worst, it means that they paid higher real-estate taxes over time.   And if...
You do realize I was being sarcastic, right?
Absolutely. Any reading of these forums will demonstrate that there are people of all stripes on here: Socialists, Liberals, Middle of the Roaders, Conservatives, Tea Partiers, Facists, Progressives, etc.The line that Apple users were creative liberal types and PC users were conservatives and business types was always a myth.And frankly, in spite of its current support for gay rights and its embracement of celebs in marketing who might be considered liberal, I don't...
