So far, this is only a rumor:
<• The social networking integration that we reported iTunes 9 would have seems to be part of a bigger social networking push by Apple. We’ve been informed that Apple has plans to tie iTunes 9 into a “Social” application that they plan to release in the future. . . .
• The application will allow you to broadcast what music you’re currently listening to, allow you to share your music with people on your network . . . .>
And more . . .
AppleInsider's report, citing the above, adds:
<The Boy Genius Report also shares some skepticism, stating that some of the details seem "a little far fetched." However, in their original report, the Web site called the tipster " a pretty reliable source." The yet-unannounced iTunes 9 could be announced at Apple's annual iPod event in September.>
Only a rumor . . . but what can it mean for Akamai if it turns out to be fact?
>>He [Marine vet David Hedrick] probably will [run for Congress] after that.<<
What an opponent of the regime he would be!
He's getting around now. Fox interviewed him, but that interview was kind of flat. Hedrick's dynamism came out in Hannity's interview of him.
When Hannity asked him about Rep. Baird's 'brownshirts' comment, Hedrick added that "now he's compared us to McVeigh, and talked about bombings there."
I wasn't aware of that comparison to McVeigh and the bombings.
Well, guess what. Once again a YouTube link meets with "Sorry, Unable to process request at this time -- error 999." But I discovered that if you go to YouTube and paste just the video's identifying number in YouTube's search box, it will bring up that video. The Hannity-Hedrick interview's identifying number is:
>>Searching "All Yahoo Message Boards" now, Yahoo found eighteen. Why oh why did it block mine?<<
I don't know, but why not just link to one of those posts? Yahoo probably won't block a link to a Yahoo post.

That's why he has the radio ownership diversity Czar.

Yes but despite the overwhelming reaction against Obamacare they're going to go ahead with it, ram it through as a reconciliation bill. It's a do or die moment.
I jumped ahead to this post because I want to look into your Adobe-Swarmcast guess, but need to get ready to go to the next county until late tonight.
>>I think they might block any links that get posted multiple times. I doubt they're censoring anything, just following a rule.<<
That occurred to me, so I searched for the identifying portion of that link at the AAPL board, which, as you know, is very vocal along party lines, though I think these days it's more conservative than leftist. I haven't read much there in quite a while so don't know whether Tom is mellowing, but last time I read one of his posts he was still throwing flames at the 'neocons'. Back to the link, Yahoo couldn't find a single instance of that one on the AAPL board.
I'd better retract that. I just searched in Yahoo's "Stocks (A-Z) category" and Yahoo found eleven dated from the 22nd through today; in fact the Citigroup (C) board had two, one on the 23rd and another the next day.
Searching "All Yahoo Message Boards" now, Yahoo found eighteen. Why oh why did it block mine?
I'll try it again now, just out of curiosity . . .
Well, guess what. Yahoo blocked it again. The past bunch (many before today and one just now) were not post deletions, but post preventions, blockades, Error whateverthenumberis.
By the way, while I was doing something in the other room earlier, Rush was on and he was in such rare form that he was talking about Obama doing the terrorists' bidding (Rush's topic was the CIA investigation) and reminding his listeners that Obama was close friends with Bill Ayers and that Ayers bombed the Pentagon. Rush connected Obama's CIA investigation with Ayers today. Have you ever heard Rush treading on such volatile ground? I'm wondering if now the regime will find some way to get Rush off the air.
>>Even though I'm a vet I'm not eligible for VA care unless I become destitute and there are no alternatives. No matter, Obamacare will probably just republish the book as their own and I (and everyone else) will get it anyway.<<
Maybe, just maybe, someone(s) will run interference. More and more people are waking up. Rush was also talking about this WSJ piece:
<Obama's Summer of Discontent
The politics of charisma is so Third World. Americans were never going to buy into it for long.>
Gotta finish getting ready, back here later, 'Nole . . .

I think they might block any links that get posted multiple times. I doubt they're censoring anything, just following a rule.
>> . . .It wouldn't be a bad idea for you to read it [VA Death Book] so you're prepared if the VA ever tries to ambush you in this creepy, cunning, stealthy way.<<
Even though I'm a vet I'm not eligible for VA care unless I become destitute and there are no alternatives. No matter, Obamacare will probably just republish the book as their own and I (and everyone else) will get it anyway.
PE, about my previous (6:30 PM) post with the transcript of Marine vet David Hedrick confronting Rep. Baird, I found out that what was blocking my post last night and today was the URL of the Hedrick-Baird video. Big Bro seems to be emulating Google. Tonight Yahoo is blocking even an obfuscated version of the URL. But searching YouTube for "Town Hall Meeting with U.S. Congressman Brian Baird" brings it up to the very top of the page. As of now it's had 348,448 views!
>>Depends on how much they want to install socialism. It might be worth the risk since once installed with a large portion of the population dependent, it will be impossible to undo.<<
They sure haven't given any appearance of _not_ wanting to install socialism. They look boldly certain — as though they know a Socialist government ruling the US is already a done deal — and that they know they'll all be reelected (in maybe a Zelaya style, unconstitutional reelection?) in 2010 and 2012.
I wonder how Obama is psychologically handling his poll numbers. Did you see Sunday's record breaker, that Rasmussen's poll now has him at -14? Today he's at -12, which was his negative record as of 30 July, before sinking yesterday to -14.
I just checked Human Events to see if Connie Hair had written anything today and she did and it's totally grim. She's been closely following the Obamacare albatross and quoted a lot of what Rush Limbaugh said in his radio program yesterday about the VA's 'Death Book'. It wouldn't be a bad idea for you to read it so you're prepared if the VA ever tries to ambush you in this creepy, cunning, stealthy way.
As you read the VA's list Rush quoted, you'll be able to see that the VA is setting up unaware, unsuspecting vets. Boy, does our ugly government appreciate those who sacrificed their sweat and blood and their lives back home to keep this country safe and free. They're probably ecstatic over the ones who lost their lives in battle. Have you ever in your life read anything so ugly as this?
<RUSH: “Page 21 from the Death Book, from the VA, reinstated by Obama. ‘What makes your life worth living? Instructions: This exercise will help you think about and express what really matters to you. For each row, check one answer to express how you would feel if this factor by itself described you,’ and there are, you know, A through S here. Here's A. ‘I can no longer walk but get around in a wheelchair.’ Life like this would be: ‘difficult, but acceptable; worth living, but just barely; not worth living; can’t answer now,’ and the people reading the book are supposed to check off which of these things apply. . . .

The Obama cabinet was all over the Sunday talk shows yesterday trying to explain this away. . . .>
Obakevorkian, advocate of killing unborn infants and old soldiers and seniors.
>>Only a third of the American colonialists were rebels . . . about the same number of Russians were communists and look what they did.<<
So it's not numbers but determination. Well, we've got some determined rebels out there, and at least three among the very most determined are Marine vets. Jesse Kelly is working toward facing down Arizona's Dem Rep Gabrielle Giffords in 2010, and his campaign ads, one with a weapon way more effective than a pea shooter, feature photos of him in Iraq.
I'd like to see Marine vet David Hedrick in the same audience, better yet on the same stage, as the woman in the red dress who shouted "I want my country back!" Did I ever like the way he lambasted Dem Rep Brian Baird!
HotAirPundit says the YouTube video went viral, "from 15 views to 123,000 in a day and a half." I clicked on 'YouTube' in the video's window, which brought me to its YouTube site, and now that view count is up to 180,590. (That count was last night, when Big Bro wouldn't let this post. Now it's at 279,797.)
The things he said struck such a chord that I transcribed the parts I liked best:
<And like you, I did swear an oath to defend my Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
. . .
Now, I heard you say tonight about educating our children, indoctrinating our children, whatever you want to call it? [Baird: I didn't say indoctrinating.] Stay away from my kids.
. . .
I also heard you say that you're gonna let us keep our health insurance. Well, THANK YOU. It's not your right to decide whether or not I keep my current plan or not. That's MY decision.
. . .
I'll remind you. A little history lesson. The Nazis did not — the Nazis were the national SOCIALIST party. They were leftists. They were — they took over the finances; they took over the car industry; they took over health care. In that country.

[And you know what he said about Pelosi.]

What I want to know is, as a Marine, as a disabled veteran, that served this country, I'VE KEPT MY OATH. Do you EVER intend to keep yours?>
Don't you wish he too would run for Congress?

Absurd and hubristic. :-[
PE, again and again, last night and today, Big Brother has blocked this post. It deleted about nine attempts and after that put up its lying error message. So I'll try posting just this first half and then try the second half.
>>Most Obama fans won't believe any of that [impending losses] until it happens.<<
That computes. They believed his "hope and change" lies in the face of his "Reverend G-d America," believed — while he was openly stating he would redistribute Americans' wealth — that he would pay their mortgages and fill their tanks . . . apparently they believed that they themselves, and not the regime, would be the redistributees.
>>No walky talky, you were right the first time. Strange, the Apple store doesn't have any iPhone ear clips, but looky here: . . .<<
Not exactly what I saw but same idea.
>> . . . Is it possible the $9 trillion deficit would be enough impetus for the House and Senate to vote no on it, even if the Dems tried to force its passage with the 'reconciliation' maneuver? . . .<<
Depends on how much they want to install socialism. It might be worth the risk since once installed with a large portion of the population dependent, it will be impossible to undo.
>>They passed Sony way back.<<
I can hardly believe my eyes. Have you seen this product?>
<Sony XDR-S10HDiP HD, Price: Rs 7,500
Sony XDR-S10HDiP HD radio with dock for iPhone and iPod players delivers crystal-clear sound. It features a built-in dock for your iPod on the top of the unit. You have basic transport function control using the buttons on the top of the radio, and complete control using the included remote. Your iPod remains fully functional, so you can operate your iPod’s advanced menu functions from the iPod itself. The unit charges your iPod when docked, and even when the power is turned off. The HD radio also provides a built-in clock with sleep and wake functions that plays out your choice of buzzer, radio station or songs from your iPod and iPhone.>
How do you spell 'capitulation'?
>>I am . . . at least I assume it's a phone. They hang on the ear and have a little microphone that sticks out. Could be just some sort of walky talky.<<
No walky talky, you were right the first time. Strange, the Apple store doesn't have any iPhone ear clips, but looky here:
Again, I'm replying to your previous post (203525&mid=205592) in this one, to truncate the "The entrapping jobless plunge" thread.
>>Hopefully they'll lose congress or the senate before too long and the spending will be stopped before it actually gets to $9 trillion.<<
One way to stop a huge addition would be to kill the insurance reform bill formerly called the healthcare bill. Is it possible the $9 trillion deficit would be enough impetus for the House and Senate to vote no on it, even if the Dems tried to force its passage with the 'reconciliation' maneuver? I don't understand why some of the Repubs are trying to reach a compromise. There should be NO socialized medicine.
>>What's another $2 trillion to the future taxpayers . . . they won't have the first $7 trillion.<<
How can bankrupted taxpayers pay _any_ taxes? Already the taxes collected this year were much less than those collected in prior years. Next April's intake will be much less than this year's. Taxes dwindling to $0 won't reduce much deficit.
