Actually.... this happens weekly....redface.gif:o

My issue with CDS was they were initially designed as protection for bondholders. They were cheaper than true insurance. Then people got the idea to use them as bets. They should have capped the amount of outstanding CDS could be issued against a bond. Governments are terrified that all the outstanding CDS will trigger somehow. The idea behind a CDS is great, its how overused they were that was terrible.

But like you said duckie one huge problem is you had things rated AAA when people really were not sure hot to value them or rate them. CDO's were even worse, how you could have a CDO rated AAA when 25% of the underlying mortgages would not have been investment grade let alone AAA.

You might call not concern for others concern for yourself, but it is. Just because you only care about how things will directly influence you in easily foreseeable ways does not mean that it's a good thing to do.

Keep up the ad hominem, it's doing you a whole lot of good. A new Honda Accord is ~$21,000. That's over 50 times the price of an iPad 2. Cars obviously get much more expensive than that, so sorry, I should have said cars range from 50 to hundreds of times the price of an iPad. Better?

Also, it's not just that it is much to expensive for most disabled people, it's that it wouldn't really help most of them in any meaning full way. Of course that has more to do with disablement, and not the product.

Windows has tons of options yes, but they are terrible. You buy an iphone and as long as the person in the store turns on the feature you can use it from the go if you a blind. The options are integrated into the software way better and much more accessible. My android phone could not do half the accessibility stuff my I phone can do.

It is clear to me that if you can't admit accessibility options are integrated into osx/ios way more efficiently you just hate apple.

Yeah, except the cars most disabled people buy are only about 5 times the cost of an iPad. But that's right, I'm just ignoring the numbers. And buying things based on their value to society doesn't work? Ever heard of hybrid cars? Alternative energy? The freekin Opium wars in China???

Why doesn't Apple just buy out AMD? And then put AMD APUs in all the laptops? And then they could pay all the devs off to code for AMD, and sell AMD after it's value like triples. Just a thought.
