Apple has made revolution. Comes out with an App store concept and all of a sudden Individuals have a second source of income. Some making more than their salary. Also the accessory market become a billion dollar both organised and unorganised. So much employment. Microsoft or symbian did not encash on this opportunity. Way to go apple. I made millions because of you. Good tree bad tree saying is right in a way but not always true. Many times in mans life if a bad women comes in things go hay wy. One thing I know a person who doent look after his parents is an worthless human being. No matter if the parents looked after him right way or not. Its amazing where this is topic came in a tech blog. But this is life. Life is money and not everything is money. Values and good human beings how one mixes is key.

By the way Joey Trombone, you did well, you have your reasons and they are truly yours. I am really proud of you as a human being because you have respect and love for your people .... "If people would care more for Family than gold ... The World would be far better"... Love and Happiness for you in your life.......
BobbySorloss - December 28, 2014 at 4:36pm
Dave you are so dumb, troll .... What can I say ... There is no more to say ..... You are worthless if you really mean it

You are a prime example of a good kid who has a good heart and appreciates his parents, raised up by parents who did their best for you!! I have a lot of respect for you Joe, remember this, In life it's not always how much money you make!, it's how you spend it that counts too!!! And in your case, this will be a memorable one for life!!!

Jackass - December 29, 2014 at 1:57am

Julienfahed - December 28, 2014 at 6:05am
well he forgot the most important thing!! It's christmas, not xmas! I feel sorry for him

Actually, Xmas is popularly associated with a trend towards materialism, and sometimes the target of people who decry the emergence of general “holiday” observance instead of particular cultural and religious ritual. But the history of the word “Xmas” is actually more respectable — and fascinating — than you might suspect. First of all, the abbreviation predates by centuries its use in gaudy advertisements. It was first used in the mid 1500s. X is the Greek letter “chi,” the initial letter in the word Χριστός. And here’s the kicker: Χριστός means “Christ.” X has been an acceptable representation of the word “Christ” for hundreds of years. This device is known as a Christogram. The mas in Xmas is the Old English word for “mass.” (The thought-provoking etymology of “mass” can be found here.) In the same vein, the dignified terms Xpian and Xtian have been used in place of the word “Christian.”
