Yes, I'm thinking that customer upgrades aren't their primary concern.  Their products are great and don't need frequent upgrades, which is fine as they are happy to make money from book sales.  My Kindle 3 is still AMAZING and I have no desire to upgrade.  But if they can keep gaining new customers, which these will surely help them do, then they are going to keep raking in the money.

Say what you will about Neil Diamond, but he actually wrote a lot of songs for others, such as I'm a Believer for the Monkees

I corrected the song.  And I agree about Diamond.  I'm a huge fan of his.

I completely agree.  It's one of the sillier halls of fame.

I know she was part of The Runaways, but I can't even name one of their songs.  Does just being a girl band mean you deserve to be in the Hall of Fame?  Would Jackie Robinson have been nearly as big a deal as he was if he made it to the majors and didn't do well?  I'm not saying all of these people/bands were bad, not at all.  It just seems like it doesn't take much to be considered for the HoF. 
165  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Rock and Roll Hall of Shame 2012 Nominees announced on: September 27, 2011, 06:28:13 PM
I'm not upset about anybody left out as I honestly don't care enough about the museum to know who has been snubbed.  My problem with this type of museum is that it's tries to be cool and have the Rock n Roll name to it but it doesn't limit itself to rock.  And the votes are too subjective.  With other halls of fame there are usually statistics that are used as a measurement, but that's not the case here, or at least it doesn't seem like the case.  Is it album sales?  That can be measured, but then if you use that as a criteria you have to induct Vanilla Ice.  Is it influence?  How in the hell do you measure influence?  I mean Joan Jett?  As far as I can remember she had one hit "I Love Rock n Roll" and one cover that got some airplay "Crimson and Clover."  Is that all it takes to get nominated?  Hell, Fine Young Cannibals hit it bigger than that and who is going to argue that they belong in the hall of fame?

Iíve never understood the criteria for being elected to the HoF.  It doesnít seem to be about body of work as you have somebody like Ritchie Valens in there.  Sometimes it seems like having a hit or two is all it takes.  I guess that means bands like Nickleback, Hanson and White Tiger are locks. 
167  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: UFC 135: Bones vs Rampage on: September 23, 2011, 02:50:12 PM
I've dropped off the UFC radar lately, so I haven't seen Jon Jones.  Rampage is getting old, but he's still got it.  I'd like to see this fight.

I haven't seen Matt Hughes fight since he fought GSP, so that's been awhile.  I'm worried he won't have the magic anymore.  I still think the most exciting fight I've ever seen was the rematch of Matt Hughes and Frank Trigg.  Trigg caught Hughes with a low blow and I thought it was all over.  Watching him turn it around and end it in round one was freaking amazing.  I used to think Koscheck was a typical wrestler who could put anybody on the ground, but didn't know where to go from there.  He really improved his game though and became a good finisher too.  I think this will be a bad night for the hall of famer.

They're going to make up their costs with in-film product placements.  C'mon, people.  Think!

I think it's a bit too early to say it's over.  He's not losing to scrubs.  I'm not saying he's Fedor of 6 years ago, but he's not Chuck Liddell either.

Maybe he's going to do a reality show where hookers compete to live with him.
175  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Charlie Sheen rushed to Hospital on: February 25, 2011, 02:24:01 PM
Are Charlie Sheen and Gadhafi the same person?  I've never seen them both in the same place, so it's still possible.

Just let it rot - nothing good can come from resurrecting it now.

Resurrecting old trilogies is always a good idea.  Just imagine if they had let Star Wars and Indiana Jones end at three.

Correct

I'm going to be leaving soon for about a week, so feel free to check the properties to verify an answer.

No looking at properties.

He should have been penalized for taunting.  I don't remember what he received, but a taunting penalty most certainly was deserved. 
183  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Irvin Kershner is dead on: November 29, 2010, 07:32:58 PM
My guess is Randy Quaid.  Actually, it's already been decided.

Insensitive isn't the word I would use.  There's got to be some better way to describe someone who makes fun of a police officer being murdered.  No, I guess you're right.  You're just "insensitive."   finger

Best Buy has the Nook, Kindle 3, and several Sony models, but the ones around me don't have the newest Sony models on display.  They sell the 350, but you can't handle it first.

I didn't just not like it, I left the theater pissed.  That's how bad it was.

And the jungle scene with its giant ants, commie-hating monkeys, and swordplay was one of the worst scenes I've ever watched.  Probably because I expected so much more from all that talent and money.

194  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Fedor vs Werdum on: June 29, 2010, 03:05:55 PM
I'm not sure Dana is overjoyed, or if he should be.  Yes, Fedor was a draw for the opposition, but in the grand scheme of things his legendary status was good for the sport, not just for Strikeforce.  I'm sure he was overjoyed when Kimbo went down, but that was because Kimbo was very bad for the sport.  Kimbo perpetuated the myth that MMA was just a bunch of bar brawlers.  His inability to stand up to real MMA fighters showed that the sport is far beyond the abilities of circus acts like Kimbo.

Right now MMA is drawing in tons of new people and what Dana wants is the sport, not just the UFC, to continue drawing in tons of new people.  The way to do this is for the sport to have big attractions and the biggest attraction of them all just got taken down a peg.  That's why Dana shouldn't be overjoyed.
