1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    2 USD!?!?!?

    Anyone else back this? I'll buy it but want to make sure it's solid, reviews look good.

    Frog, can you recommend any stock podcasts? I listen to bloomberg and NPR right now.

    Rambo, I've been with my girl give me a day.

    I'm the same. In addition, the stream rates are usually pretty bad. Now if there were an audiophile quality streaming service, I'd use it.



    I use it. Many of my apps have not updated the aspect ratio yet. Its a good app, a few unfriendly quirks but I love the pre and post market pricing.



    I'm happy with the default, what I cant stand is how itunes stops downloading my podcasts if I dont keep up with them. Very annoying and no way around it.

    T-Mobile came out and announced that they'll be offering unlimited 4G data with no throttling on their prepaid plan for $70 a month, unlimited talk and text also included. I think this is going to be huge with the iPhone set.

    Cal, I don't listen to any podcasts, so can't help you out there.

    Instead of listening to those, I'd suggest you follow a couple well-known finance guys on Twitter to see what their thoughts are on the market, macroeconomic events, etc.

    Look up people who are known to specialize in certain 'sectors,' sectors being very loosely defined here: tech stocks, energy markets, commodities, pink dildos, etc. and see if they have a twitter account.

    I was at the local mall last week...first time in years and hated it...anyway, saw a kiosk where they would take your device, be it iPhone, iPad, iPod, and put some sort of coating on it. Could pick a girly colour or something like graphite, etc. Sort of thought about it given the low quality/fragile coating the 5 has.

    I hardly ever do streaming. If I do it's KQED and Monocle 24. I discovered Ladyhawke on M24, haven't picked up on any new musical acts or artists since. My musical tastes stop mostly at 1989.
