Would help if you had show notes up same day as podcast. Can't always get all the names and need to see them in writing.

apple has a history of rusihng a product to market then offering the improved models a year or so later. which has worked well for them. but this time i think apple has shot themselves in the foot. unlike the iphone ipod this is not an easy fashion accessory to carry around. it's not like your going to slap this on the bar to show off to your friends, you wont get past the laughs from your european man purse you will need to carry it. i lug my laptop around in my backpack for work, if the ipad could do what a laptop does i would switch, but it doesnt. no flash, no multitasking, no camera etc. to be honest i am still wondering which of my devices this replaces. basically i think this would be most used at home, so watching movies- i have a big screen tv. reading books- i like real books. listening to music- i have quite a few devices i can listen to music already. internet, i have a desktop a laptop which can do more. so here is my thinking,,, a lot of people are scratching thier heads wondering why do i need this ( of course apple fans will buy a jar of mutilated kittens if it had the apple logo on it). so many people will either not want it or will wait till the next version comes out, if that happens apple doesnt shift enough units they may drop it altogether. so if you want one i would say get it now because chances are high that apple has created a revolutionary magical ipod for the jolly green giant a waste of time for the rest of us.

Wonderful items from you, man. I've understand your stuff previous to and you are simply extremely great. I actually like what you've bought here, certainly like what you are saying and the way in which through which you assert it. You make it enjoyable and you still take care of to keep it wise. I can not wait to read much more from you. This is actually a wonderful website.

Question Are there any monitoring agency set up in the various sections responsible for sending the required and deserving students for this scholarship?
