Mar 5th 2012 3:15PM You sir, clearly have never been to Angola. Never gone through the visa process, never been to Luanda, never been hassled by cops and crippled by bureaucracy at every turn. Surely, eventually, some day there will be tourism in Angola. Look at Mike Stead's Brandt publication, but anytime soon. No, not gonna happen.
Tourism is next? How about repairing Luanda's roads? How about bringing down the cost of living for the average Angolan, how about returning to being a net exporter of food, how about paving the road to the port, the heart of this import economy, how about having a functioning system of land line telephony network, how about not dumping raw sewage and gray water directly into the bay pictured above, how about a stable electrical grid? Need I go on?
Oh that, and there is effectively no middle class to speak of.

Apr 2nd 2006 7:44PM I've been debating on buying an Xbox 360, but at times I remember that it's nearly a quarter of a Macbook Pro or even more of a (mythical) Macbook (iBook).
I'm holding out.

This is my favorite. Steve is such a quirky guy. Thanks for the good web-site. I like engadget and the internets!
Mar 3rd 2006 7:11PM You buy the car and they can't even throw in a free iPod with it, you only get the option of compatibility, which is probably an add on? Sheesh.
Feb 5th 2006 10:42PM How did this get published as fact on other blogs? It's pretty obvious that it's a rumor and or probably fake.
Oct 10th 2005 11:58PM The problem with this is, Apple still gets the revenue and resulting profit. Why not take the money, buy several used/busted ones from Ebay, take them to the Apple store and do it there. That might make more of a statement than continuing to support Apple.
Aug 18th 2005 5:49PM I was in a promotional strategy class this spring and we put on a promotional event on campus for the local GM dealer. As a way to get students to interact with the cars, we used iPod shuffles as give aways. Students really responded, getting very excited/bummed when they won/didn't win.
