    Which Galaxy Tab is that? It looks totally different from the iPad.



    Is that mesh? Expanded metal? It looks like it is formed, rather than totally slippery and flat like the iPad. I bet that it is MUCH more comfortable to put it on your lap than a slippery, featureless slab like some others.

    With regard to current day Israel, the western world created it and so it has been our responsibility to defend it. The people who inhabit that country now have no historical or genetic connection to the people who lived there in biblical times. We should just move the entire country to some equal size piece of desert land in Utah where it would be easier to protect them. They could try to get along with the Mormons. Call it New Israel.

    I tend to agree with you. But to be fair, despite what you said Israel is still the closest thing to a Western Democracy that you can find in that area. That doesn't mean the US should support it blindly and unconditionally, time and again.

    That sounds logical. But current reality is based on a biblical argument. It is very sad that we have put the people who lived there thousands of years ago against the people who have been living for the at least the last hundreds(?) of years.



    I wonder if the West would still have gone ahead back in the 40's if the could foresee how many wars that would cause.

    I've travelled around a lot, and have been to quite a few places on that map, and while it is slightly exaggerated, I find it to be mostly accurate.



    I also agree with you about the BBC, they are a horrible state funded propaganda channel. Ignorant people complain about Fox in the US, but Fox news is not a bunch crooks that steal money from people and force them to subscribe, unlike many state and tax payer subsidized channels and propaganda outlets in Europe.

    It's not perfect, no country is, but it's only the greatest country ever to exist since the beginning of the Universe. Without the US, the world would be a very different place.

    I agree that the complaints about Fox News are completely unfounded. For starters, people whining about it mistakenly assume that it is a news station. Total expectation mismatch.

    "Apple should pull out of Korea completely!"



    Get yourself new glasses or learn how to read. I never wrote that ALL Korean people don't deserve Apple products, I wrote that many Koreans don't deserve Apple products, such as the 27,000 who are suing Apple.



    Apple should pull out of Korea completely! I'm not sure if Apple has any official stores in Korea, but if they do, then shut them down too! Demolish them to the ground! Many Koreans don't deserve Apple products, especially with all that is happening with Samsung.

    Well, let's see. They call themselves "Fox News". Their web site is foxnews.com. They constantly refer to the "Fox News Channel" on their web site.



    Gee, I wonder why anyone would 'mistakenly' assume that they're a news station. I guess in your view, it's better to be blatant liars than to call yourself a news station?

    Why is the color of Galaxy player 50 in the article white?

    Galaxy player 50 in North America has black color.

    I think that you correctly identified why they assume, but missed why they are mistaken.

    OK. So because some Koreans are underserving of Apple's blessings, then the impoverished schoolchildren struggling to just keep their heads above poverty should also be denied the chance to advance themselves with using Apple products.



    No? How does that work again?

    Reminds me greatly of The Jerusalem Duality (S01E12 Big Bang Theory) where Sheldon was trying to talk people into creating an exact replica of Jerusalem in the Mexican desert

    If they're barely above the poverty level then how the hell are they affording Apple products?
