Didn't Facebook already offer to buyout Twitter back when it had drug cartel-like amounts of cash and was outright refused?I don't see this happening anytime soon either...

Follow up: Due to the purchase of Twitter by Apple, you can only send tweets using the newest version of the iPhone and you will automatically become a following of apple and every tweet will have #apple attached to it.

Also, we now have a patent on any sentence, phrase or list of letters that amounts to 140 characters or less. We will be suing everyone who has ever written anything.

I'll check back later to see who's parroting from the new script, and who still has the old one.

A) Why? They don't earn that much money.
B) How? Twitter has refused buyout offers before.

So Microsoft buys Facebook, and Apple buys Twitter. They've picked their spots.

You're so right, each time I have to pull out that USB to USB-mini cable, I have to load up all the drivers and try to decipher what the instructions say.

/Oh, by the way, I was being sarcastic!

What about indians and their ability to write proper drivers? I'm convinced they have infiltrated our company so they can bring it down in record time. I've been telling people it's a bad move to keep investing over there and their skills yet no one listens. Then they wonder why it takes so long to get a new product to market, why our current lineup went from top of the heap to middle of the road in record time, and why our reputation is fading. Their halfass work ethic is ruining everything we are doing yet they keep pouring more and more money into that environment.

I have nobody on ignore. I like to see viewpoints that are different from mine, if only just to point and laugh.
