I still don't get why, if customers have X amount of money to spend (as the article illustrated), stores think that opening more days / longer days will translate into more sales. Customers who budget more »

Automatic renewals are only good for items that don't need updating. Driver's licenses need new pictures every other time; some need new vision tests, etc. Auto-renewals are impractical for these kind more »

I don't own an eBook yet. I feel a part of reading is touch-sensory, the physical sense of holding the book in your hand, turning the pages and feeling the paper, being able to place your finger in th more »

To expand on this insightful comment: many of those over 58 are retired/or retiring/or waiting to retire. Having been laid off in the downturn, many older workers find that they cannot get any tractio more »

This is the key. Too many people are impatient and think that the weight they've put on steadily for the past 20 years can be "melted" away by the right "diet" in a matter of weeks. They think that, b more »

"Changing one's lifestyle" is hard work, and best accomplished in small steps. This is why there is no one "best" diet - the "best" diet is the one that appeals to you, that fits in with your schedule more »

What a wonderful tribute! Hospitality is one of those damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don't industries where you can do everything right to make the stay perfect, and there'll always be the guest that more »

Unfortunately, while we can talk all we want about the value of the arts & humanities, the reality is that students & their famiies are investing a lot in a college education, willingly accumulating a more »

Today, if it costs $1 to make the T shirt & you're asked to pay $12, tomorrow if it costs $2 to make the shirt you'll be asked to pay $16. NOT because the cost of production went up by $4....because t more »

I wish I could LIKE this comment a thousand times. Admirable people do what's right, especialy when it's hard, most especially when it's unpopular. Ignorant people just snipe from the crowd. more »

Unfortunately, higher ed is not putting its money into the actual education of students (increased use of part-time & adjunct faculty, maintenance of majors that attract few students and which lead to more »

i can see paying a $12 surcharge for something you actually need right away - a prescription, dry cleaning, etc. But seriously....$12 just to avoid an errand, when the printer ink was 2 blocks away a more »

I agree that this is a big mistake. Yahoo cites the need for "innovation", but let's face it - most of us have jobs that require productivity rather than innovation. 11,000 people all clamoring to hav more »
