I own both a Chromebook and an iPad. The iPad is for consuming content only. It's not easy to produce content on it--documents, spreadsheets, even email. The Chromebook is good for consuming AND producing content. It has a bigger screen, and a keyboard. It boots up fast and has a long battery life. At less than half the price of an iPad, it's a no-brainer for schools. Since I bought my 13" Toshiba Chromebook, my iPad has been collecting dust.

Most airports are not located in the city for which they are named. They are out in the 'burbs. Would you say you are flying to DC or Arlington Va?

What an anal article.
The census bureau uses something called Metropolitan Statistical Areas that include the city and it's surrounding areas.
For example, New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-PA.
San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont, CA.
If someone from Oakland CA, simply says they're from the Bay Area, is that acceptable Ms. Kelly?
Great comment over at TPM:
Let's not forget that it was John McCain and his sidekick Lindsey Graham that wanted to give Syrian rebels MANPADS missiles to shoot down Syrian military jets. Cooler heads fortunately prevailed.

I like it much more than American style football, which stops the play so often that I get bored watching. Soccer is much more fast paced, like hockey or basketball. Of course if it ever becomes really popular in America, the TV networks will figure out a way to stop the play every few minutes in order to cram in as many commercials as possible. A game will take four hours to watch.

If you think Obama's approval numbers are low now, they will rapidly head to W. Bush levels if he takes military action in Iraq.

Maybe you should star in one of those fake Obamacare sob story commercials!
I see. This is all about Obama bashing. You really don't care about Ukraine or Syria. They are just a means to an end.

You sound like one of those Chicken Hawks. I'm sure it won't be you or any member of your family that will be going to war and doing the fighting and dying.
So the US should go in a fight the Russians for them, when they aren't willing to defend themselves? Brilliant! That will turn out well.
The Ukrainians, the Syrians, the Iranians, the Israelis, the Palestinians, the Egyptians, the Saudis, the Moldovans, the Poles, the Czechs, the Japanese, the Taiwanese, the Baltic populations: they are all living with the jitters, and some of them on the cusp of despair, because the United States seems no longer willing to fight their wars for them.
Getting involved in another military adventure is jumping from the frying pan into the fire!
The only alternative is to use diplomacy. The author (and you) don't offer a single specific course of action, you just carp from the sidelines.
His election was a response to W's failed war in Iraq.
Why should the US fight for Ukraine when they won't fight for themselves?

When W came into office, unemployment was 4.1%. By the time he left in January 2009 it shot up to 7.8%, and continued up to 10% in October 2009. Republicans love to blame Obama for that, but the majority of Americans aren't buying it. They still blame Bush, and rightly so.
Heck of a job Bushie!
YES--he would have won anyway. Mittens was a disaster!

A bad law based on Romneycare.
It came to an end when W. was elected.

Another reason Boner's premiums are high is because he smokes.
He's also an alcoholic and will probably need a liver transplant.
Then there's the melanoma.

Internet has been available on planes
for several years now. I have texted from 35,000 feet. I enjoy surfing the web, it helps pass the time on those long trans-con flights.
But allowing phone conversations is a BAD idea, if people need to keep in touch let them text. And please folks, turn off ALL sound effects on your phones, tablets and computers as a courtesy to your fellow pax.

What about all the dirt on Christie that came out in the book Double Down? The Romney campaign said:
"If Christie had been in the nomination fight against us, we would have destroyed him—he wouldn’t be able to run for governor again. When you look below the surface, Newton said, it’s not pretty."Read more: Double Down Excerpt: Mitt Romney Feared Chris Christie's Baggage | TIME.com http://swampland.time.com/2013/11/02/the-hunt-for-pufferfish/#ixzz2jmwbaF4f

I love inflight wifi, but I won't pay this and I doubt many passengers will.
I will just load my iPad with content I can read offline (Instapaper and Google Currents) and be satisfied with that.
