I thought about that, but left it alone.  Besides, some of the advocates 
need a bit of entertainment.  :-))

If a troll:
Perhaps it is time to re-consider what you're doing with you life?

If not a troll:
Perhaps it is time to re-consider what you're doing with you life?
Also check the group name, this isn't the place for Apple stuff.

Possible, but unlikely.

If you see this video as an ad, I feel bad for your apparent inability to 
be entertained by a good magician.  I don't see this as an ad, clearly 
the device cannot do the things he does with it in real life.

Lighten up...

Well, DeepfriedLice, it wasn't an apple ad... it was a magician.
Of course trolls like you like to do the twisting, but unfortunately, it 
is around your neck this time.

It's from a TV show called "Verstehen Sie Spaß?¨ (Do you understand 
Fun?) running since 1980. The Brittish version is called "Surprise, 
Surprise" and it's more or less comparable with the US "Candid Camera".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surprise,_Surprise_%28TV_series%29

And I agree, it *is* funny *and* impressive.

Of course no one has claimed that.

Monk using Hand to Hand ineffective?
I've gone through the entire game (nearly done, I think) with an orc monk character.. While I was hoping on eventually being a kung-fu master, I found myself using the bow more than anything. The hand-to-hand approach has proven to basically been fatal, especially when there's more than one foe. I have used it enough to improve the skill to Journeyman. Has anyone used HtH effectively? I always end up running backwards in circles, perforating my enemies with a boatload of arrows (which is amusing in itself mind you... some of those beasties end up looking like porcupines when they ...

Just German dictionary (not German-English)
Are there any pure, just German dictionaries for Palm available? i.e., a dictionary like a German would use to look up a word, and find it explained in German. Like we look up an English word in an English dictionary. This is good for vocabulary building, before trying a translating, German-English dictionary. Can't seem to find one. Thanks in advance...any help appreciated. Geoffrey :) ...

new iPad and new iPad mini
Well, Apple released the 4th generation iPad today, and a 7.0" iPad mini. They will sell shedloads, though I suspect they would have crippled the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire if they hadn't priced the mini at $329. I won't be getting either one myself. -- Worlds on worlds are rolling ever From creation to decay, Like the bubbles on a river Sparkling, bursting, borne away. -- Shelly "Lewis" <g.kreme@gmail.com.dontsendmecopies> wrote in message news:slrnk8drrj.1d2.g.kreme@mbp55.local... > Well, Apple released the 4th generation iPad today, The *New...

Should I buy an iPad 3 or an iPad 4?
Dear friends: Should I buy an iPad 3 now, at a discount price, or wait a couple of months and buy an iPad 4 at a full price? (Remember that the iPad 4 is not released in my Country now) My doubt is related to the characteristics of the iPad 4 that they make it more preferable to the iPad 3. Are they processor speed? A significant amount of more internal memory? Better screen resolution? I don't think that the new connector is a significant advantage to me because I have now a lot of accessories that they use the old big iPad connector. Am I wrong? So, could you detail the...

Is there a way to go from ipad to ipad by wire?
All computers can go from computer to computer by cross over cable. Many phones can go from phone to phone by near field. But, is there a way for an ipad to go to an ipad by wire?

Skyrim: Heavy Armor = Hand to Hand Skill?
I'm trying to see if I can play Skyrim with a mostly Hand to Hand character. The description of the "Fists of Steel" perk says: "Unarmed attacks with Heavy Armor gauntlets do their armor rating in extra damage." Does this mean what I think it means: Leveling up Heavy Armor makes you punch harder? The "armor rating" number displayed for my gauntlets goes up when Heavy Armor increases. Also, the description for the Juggernaut perk says: "Increases armor rating for Heavy Armor by X%." If this is the same "armor rating", then levelin...
