Packaging does not change the cool, or not cool factor. It's act of smoking, nobody cares what package it comes in. I mean seriously are people really that naive that they think it's because of the packages?
As soon as my tax refund comes in I'm paying my early termination fee & dropping Verizon then I'm going back to prepaid. Technically I don't have to continue paying anything and could drop at anytime since the plan is in my mom's name, but I won't dog my own mother that way. Anyway, I'm totally done with contract phones from here on out.
We could really cut down on those numbers if the FDA would quit fighting against Electronic cigarettes. The FDA took the makers to court and lost, because they wanted to claim they were drug delivery devices. Which is quite silly because if that were the case than so are regular cigarettes.
The industry wants regulation but they refuse to so, instead they are fighting against it because by having people quit smoking it cuts into the profits of big pharma and a few other large entities profits.
A few years ago, my leg got all itchy & inflamed and not having insurance at the time I wasn't too keen on running off to the doctors. So I googled my symptoms and found out I had cellulitis. It's a good thing too because if it goes untreated it can be quite deadly. After finding out the problem the hubby took me to the E.R. where it was treated & I was given a prescription for some salve & antibiotics. It healed up fine. If it hadn't been for google I would not have known what I had and it could have ended very badly.
Any petition that requests meaningful change get's an empty response and nothing comes of it. It's a farce meant to placate "We the people". I know I went through and signed quite a few of those petitions and everyone seems to have received the same kind of response.
"We hear you but we can't do anything about it"
"we hear you but we won't do anything about it"
"we hear you but we aren't going to change it"
That's about the gist of every response to every petition.
Yeah I can see this rate only getting higher as more & more people obtain smart phones & tablet devices. Hell I never uploaded videos to you tube until I got my Android and was able to take video of my family.
You know I use mediafire to backup all my legitimate software purchases. It makes it much easier when I have reformat a hard drive and re-install the operating system. To just be able to download the software I want to install. I'm pretty certain I can't be the only person who uses the site in this manner.
yeah this is something that isn't going to be resolved by one day of protests we need to let them know we won't stand for their childish behavior. As a parent I can say that only a child would get upset and attack when they can't have things their way and that's exactly what they have done, attacked us.

Anymore the only online PC games I play are MMO's.My husband was going to buy BF3 and he was very very excited about it, but their DRM stopped him in his tracks & he refuses to buy it. DRM & has made PC game companies lose at least 2 customers right here.
