 Probably way more rolling friction from the big rubber tire too.And waaaaay more expensive.  Still, it's got great "shock" value.(Yeah, sorry for the bad pun.)
Nice, but to *really* get noticed, you need the One Wheel: More info (and videos): http://rideonewheel.com
 I'm liking DirecTV less and less.  The iOS app doesn't even let you play back recordings from your DVR to your iOS devices.  Will drop DirecTV as soon as possible. But whatever. I only watch Jeopardy on ABC.  And the Olympics.Oh wait.  Not the Olympics.
 No prob with the typos.  And yes, the Chinese deal might need to be re-negotiated.  But I'm sure there's a clause in the contract that is triggered if oil prices drop below the deal number. I think low global oil prices (in part due to reduced US demand for foreign oil) may also hurt countries like Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Venezuela, et al.  They're among the top oil-exporting countries, so their economies must depend fairly heavily on their own oil exports.
 Shale oil production: more expensive than traditional drilling. Messing with Putin's economy: priceless. Reducing dependence on Mideast oil: priceless (in lives and money). And I think OPEC is reducing their pricing to compete against US *exports* of shale oil.Not to make their oil cheaper for us to buy in the US.If anything, lower OPEC prices might be hurting Russia far more than the US.
Interesting.  Fracking is driving down the world's oil prices.  Great for the US economy.  Bad for the Russian economy, as Russia is the world's largest energy exporter.  Their economy depends heavily on their natural gas, oil, and coal exports.   So the Russian government lets the ruble slide, the oil companies make windfall profits selling overseas. The Russian consumer pays way more for foreign goods and for gas, but f--k the peasants anyway, right?  Russia is run by...
 Have walked past it many times.  And I thought "WTF is that?" every time.
 Better idea: go after Honda for having a Civic monopoly.Guaranteed to win that case./s
 And it won't be the last beta.  When my iMac restarted it went straight to the Desktop.  The completion progress dialog was still there and it said "5 minutes remaining."  It didn't ask me for my password until the progress indicator finished, at which point it presented the login / password view as expected. Other than that it seems fine.
 Well that excludes North Korea.  Where hackers hold "Will Hack For Rice" signs in the streets.
