The drives. logical or mechanical, may fail but their data should be recoverable unless they were wiped clean or overwritten.
Also saw HP's 4G/500G cheap PC at $298 next to Lenovo's similar PC at $228 (Fry's ran Dell's similar basic PC last week at $228 as well). May be it is a end of life fire sale for Palm and hope so; end of an era when Palm was the best smart phone around until iPhone.
Yahoo removed my reply earlier, so tamer language this time.
One third of Americans would rather pay for a quarter pounder than a third pounder burger at the same price. Why, they asked the researchers, should they pay the same amount for a third of a pound of meat as they did for a quarter-pound of meat at McDonald’s. The “4” in “¼,” larger than the “3” in “⅓,” led them astray. --Elizabeth Green, NYT Magazine, on losing money by overestimating the American public's intelligence.

(Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday took another step toward authorizing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama, claiming he has overstepped his executive powers.
In a partisan vote of 7-4, the House Rules Committee approved the legislation, likely setting it up for consideration by the full House next week. The Republican initiative already has spawned a bitter debate with Democrats less than four months before elections that will determine the political control of Congress next year.
Any lawsuit likely would take years to wind through federal courts.
House Speaker John Boehner wrote in June that Obama's use of executive orders, including raising the minimum wage for federal contractors and stopping deportations of undocumented youths brought to the United States by their parents, risked giving him a "king-like authority."
Soon, we won't hear of big bankers causing the financial meltdown. They have lawyers pestering Google to take down those reports of liar loans and triple A subprime derivatives. Soon when you search for financial meltdown, instead of seeing TARP and Fed bailouts, returns would be how the wall street fat cats saved America despite of run away fed spending and national debt.

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) is cutting 14% of its 125K-strong workforce. 12.5K of the cuts will hit Nokia's phone unit, thereby reducing its size by roughly half.
The layoffs are expected to be finished by the end of FY15 (ends June '15), and to result in a $1.1B-$1.6B charge. $750M-$800M of that total will be related to severance and other benefit costs, and $350M-$800M will be tied to asset-related charges.
The seasonal adjustment formulation is what it is and has been. If you don't believe in seasonal adjustment, then, you should look at the historic non-adjusted data set instead. What do you see this past week vs past years' same week? That data may be hard to find, how about vs say the same week in 2007 or 2008?

Took me awhile to dig this out from John Sandford's 1991 thriller "The Empress File" ... a practice long established (written up 23 years ago in pop fiction:
"They fixed the districts so there'd be five thousand people in each one – one man, one vote, just like it's laid down by the law," John said. "One district covers the heart of the black side of town, five thousand people. Hardly a white among them. That district will always elect a black councilman. But when you take out those five thousand black votes, in one bloc, the whites are a majority in all the rest of the districts. There's about two thousand whites in each, and about fifteen hundred blacks."
