  4. I have had some bad luck with Logitech wireless (mostly rechargeable headphones) the mini USBs always seem to break after a few months no matter how careful you are, that being said I do use a pair of Artemis 933s headphones and the new trackball mx ergo mouse which is awesome I haven't used any other type of mouse in the last 10 years ( I hate mouse pads and just the way that you need to always have a flat surface) so I don't see a problem with the mice also their keyboards are decent but ill stick with my corsair Cheers and a merry Christmas
  5. also more important with heaters pay attention to the amperage and btus of the heater i am thinking the bigger the cord the better if you touch the cord after a few minutes and its warm (warmer than ambient) then its too small

  8. ok well then I stand corrected BUT, Going public via an initial public offering is theoretically available to companies of all sizes. Traditional initial public offerings, however, require an underwriter. Finding a willing underwriter in the US and Canada is often difficult if not impossible to accomplish by small and micro-cap companies. Many small companies are using direct public offering as a non-traditional initial public offering. One of the main advantages of a direct public offering is companies avoid the expense and complications of an underwriter and underwriter’s counsel. A direct public offering can be very effective particularly when the amount being raised is under $2,000,000 and the internet is utilized to sell all or part of the offering. Direct public offerings are more effective in the US than in British Columbia, since in BC, companies need to be listed on a recognized exchange (the US OTC Markets are not recognized by Canadian securities regulators). http://venturelawcorp.com/going-public-article/
  9. just saying that it is illegal for a Canadian company to offer an IPO on the new york stock exchange
  10. thanks for the bullet points -Ryan you nailed it
  11. I have been in the Sudan Somalia and Etienne --most of my military career was spent in that part of the world and yes -I- would definitely be a boor if -I believed that a computer would fix- the world.but without technology we stand less of a chance of getting water to those villages so their women dont have to walk 10 miles a day just for water and technology is going to show them how to irrigate their crops
  12. OK this got far from where I was really trying to take it so I must have stated my case fairly badly and for that, I am sorry I was just trying to create a collaborative effort in critical thinking on a topic that Unless you are involved in this industry most people just don't give two shakes about. they buy a computer every 2 years get a new phone every year and dont care what happens to the stuff they throw out. how many people out there in this conversation know for a fact what goes down in a landfill. I am not trying to make anyone feel guilty or bad I am just hoping to a awaken a certain thought or spark, I am truly sorry if I have given the wrong impression of a dullard or holier than thou tone of speech
  13. kind of funny that they"forced" him out Imo jobs was more of a spinmaster than a true business person but I am a bit biased I guess I never really trusted or cared for the dude BUT that's just me
  14. my point to starting this thread was and is to get people thinking that "eh its no big deal" can be considered complacent. do you know that there are families suffering right now in America and Canada due to the lack of a computer? those things we have and take for granted like oh I'll just post my resume or ill just walk into a home depot or lowes or.... and use their computer kiosk to fill out a job application. when there are over 2 hundred THOUSAND illiterate people in the united states alone! and probably twice that many computer illiterate everyday children suffer because of illiteracy I have been to countries around the world where the infant mortality rate is as high as it was a thousand years ago. anyway yall proved my point to some extent please donate your used electronics that you don't sell and maybe try to participate in a program like free geeks and educate those who are less fortunate and do your best to educate others on how to keep our landfills free of toxic E waste.oh and one more thing. back in the late 1800s early 1900s the automobile was just a "fad" that was NEVER going to replace horse mule and donkey food for thought
