Given the enthusiasm for bicycle sharing, I'm surprised that folding bikes aren't more popular in cities. They have major advantages for urban commuters over both full-frame bicycles (can be carried inside to prevent theft, don't take up a lot of space in the office or home) and shared bikes (no 45-minute time limit, no need to find a station to pick up/drop off, faster and lighter). They're the best of both worlds.

Not really, he was a typical nouveau-riche imbecile. My favourite part was his use of fleur de sel ($10 a pot, what a steal!) to salt meat for roasting.

Didn't Canada win this thing a few years ago? Not that anybody cared.

Sure for now. What about in a few years...

Don't those of you who are following along in the books as you watch the series get bored? I remember trying to read Patrick Suskind's Das Parfum after seeing the movie adaptation and giving up after 50 pages because everything was exactly the same; no surprises left.
Well Amazon's service is more expensive than Apple's, which may keep usage down. Google hasn't announced their pricing yet. I don't use Pandora (not available outside the US afaik), but I have no interest in running up against my pitifully small monthly bandwidth cap and getting charged $5 for each additional megabyte to stream music. I blame the carriers.
