    I didn't say they had to be tech genius. It's pretty obvious that you dont open flash player on the market or try to look for it in the app drawer. once you install it, thats it. they didnt even try to go and test it on the browser, they just tried to push the open button then uninstalled and gave it 1 star.

    Those ass hat college kids who drive around at 60 miles an hour on a 45 road, and cut everyone off, swerving from lane to lane, just to make it to the red light first because they've overslept for their class, and everyone else's lives around them in their cars is less important than theirs and getting to class late.

    People that DO NOT know what they are talking about, so they just insert a witty(read: stupid) thing to make them look like they are thinking about it. :mad:

    Well, let us be fair. Blame the consumers for putting up with the inferior crap. At least in part. If we stopped buying, things would perhaps change. We wont so we get what we get.

    You can still buy quality and when you make side by side comparisons of products from the Good Old Days with their modern equivelant, you will be sad.

    I can speak about Vintage Bikes, Banjos, Fountain Pens, and other things and how the old compares to the new. If you want quality, either buy and restore the old, or pay for the new stuff made by quality manufacturers.

    Everything has a quality counterpart. Quality is costly, and we wont generally purchase it.

    I remember inexpensife steel and chrome car parts. Replaced by cheap plastic. Steel is better, but plastic is cheaper to make. That is an opinion only; i still love cast iron engines and lead body work.

    I recently looked at a imported banjo. A true piece of 350.00 crap. Then I looked at a new Deering, a work of art. Deering can sell you a $60,000.00 instrument and i guarantee the quality is high.

    Finally, companies need to be competitive so they have to cheapen up their products or costs will kill them in the marketplace.

    Cheers and I'll shut the hell up.

    Bob

    How a teacher expects their students to do work when they can't FORGE their own lesson plans. Talk about reverse plagiarism... SHEESH!

    By the way... It was kind of on the cool side today and I'm not looking forward to winter. Although, I cursed the heat during the depths of summer. The grass is always greener... right?

    You know what bugs me? When I ask a question, and I state that a did a search on it, and someone basically calls me stupid, because they did a search too and found answers! I hate people that rub thier "brilliance" in your face. "Oh look at me! Im know something you dont ha ha that makes me better than you" Well I wont be impressed until you can hammer a 6 inch spike through a board with your penis! So there!

    I feel your pain harukasan! Remember in the bottom right hand corner is [​IMG] (report button). It is in the http://androidforums.com/site-updat...4-zero-tolerance-policy-all-members-read.html that users are NOT to respond to questions by saying 'google it'. Furthermore the staff needs everyones assistance in reporting hateful/rude members.

    Back on topic now:D
    I hate it when people are driven away from AF because of one or more users being an *ss. Not saying that is the case here because i have no knowledge of your specific rant:p
    Come back now ya hear!

    You must have read my conversation with another member that did not understand my problem, lol Im afraid I went overboard with my response, but geez I just dont like it when someone makes me feel like I'm stupid because I ask a question... I was told growing up, there are no stupid questions, and I guess because I am a mom, I get used to answering all kinds of questions from my 5 kids with much more patience than you can imagine... try explaining to your 9 year old what a mouth orgasm or a condom is because she heard her older brother talk about them. *eyes roll*

    So I suppose I hope for everyone to answer questions with the same patience I give my kids, lol

    Another pet peeve.... I hate when people dont put the grocery carts they used back! They are attracted to my truck, and that just burns my bottom!

    An oldie but goody that just popped back into my head because I traveled for work this week:

    People who approach the airport security checkpoints that are not prepared and why always get into the line behind them!!!

    You should not be sent back to the "machine" 4 times because you forgot to take off your belt, then your shoes, then your phone, then your ????

    Well, I honestly haven't tried it, but I'd have to guess that I could not. :( Maybe when I was younger... :D

    Back on topic, I don't understand why, if someone knows where a helpful thread, they'll post to tell someone to look for it, but they can't be bothered to take the time to post a link to it. The search here leaves a lot to be desired, IMO. I've searched for a thread that I know the exact name of, and still had trouble finding it. For instance, on the 3rd page of results, bellow a slew of threads that have nothing to do with my search.

    On the other hand, I've also seen many examples of someone posting something that is already being discussed just a few threads bellow and is clearly addressed in the thread title. I have a lot less empathy for such laziness.

    I have a new rant, argh and this one really ticks me off something fierce! When my boys are playing Modern Warfare 2, and whenever my boys kills someone, the stupid F-***** respond by questioning my kids sexuality, by calling them gay, F*ggots, and they tell them they are going to kick thier *sses, or whatever... then my 4 year old walks by, hears this crap, and starts calling everything gay which really ticks me off, because Im trying to teach my kids tolerance, and years of hard work goes down the drain with these dumb pecker faces' comments. So I have to get on the mic, and cuss them out, and come up with some very clever new swear words and put these arse ***** in thier place. I cant stand that game! its the same thing over and over again, people cussing, people dying doodoodoodoodoodoo pow pow pow pewpewpew, *insert heavy breathing here*, frag frag frag, nuke, nuke, nuke, oh look I got the crap shot out of me, and Im going to yell and complain because I think Im so awesome no one should shoot me, oh and all of a sudden I am healed and respawned!!! wow this must be like real life! Cool! Oh how super, I can play a game that takes no brains at all, and its the same thing over and over and over, cool repetition makes life so exciting, how full of awesomness am I?!!! Oh and Im so uneducated all I know how to do is swear, and piss and moan about the campers, and the boosters, wah wah wah.... oh, play a game that uses actual thoughts? ha! I couldnt possibly because I enjoy it when perfect strangers call me F*ggots and mother F'ers all day long!
