  1. Hi there,

    Love ths site, but… and I realise it’s a big ask but… is there any chance you could provide a transcription of your interviews.

    It’s not always easy for me to be able to listen to posts if I’m busy doing something else or I’m at work for instance and just have a spare 5 minutes. It also helps me if I want to refer back to the post at a later date.

    Then again I know transcribing is a right royal pain in the backside so I don’t blame you if you have better things to be doing with your time :)

    • Hi Amy, Thank you for your comment. You know I am thinking of doing a high-level summary on these interviews. I’ll update this post soon with the summary. I am looking at the option of transcribing, until I get that totally figured out, bear with me. :) Thanks for listening to the interview.

  2. you’re in point of fact a excellent webmaster. The site loading pace is amazing.
    It seems that you are doing any unique trick.
    Furthermore, The contents are masterpiece.
    you have done a excellent task in this topic!

  3. Men philips norelco sensotouch 3d can buy shaving and grooming products along with
    other sophisticated shaving highlights. This doesn’t involve any type
    of hair the person has. Jan Severn passed away in philips norelco sensotouch 3d
    September 2011, although her memory as well as the global beauty and personal care sectors has to offer?

  4. I simply want to mention I am just newbie to blogs and honestly savored this page. Likely I’m going to bookmark your blog . You actually come with fantastic articles and reviews. Thank you for sharing with us your website page.

  5. Equipment that is used in competitive sports, like baseball,
    basketball, softball and so on, can bring an element of adversarial negativity to the space which can
    make the child become overly competitive. South Korea has the most medals, with a total of seven, while the USSR still has the
    most gold medals, with four. Being a memorabilia collector, especially in the field of
    sports memorabilia, is one of the most exciting and challenging field for a collector, particularly
    for those who love sports and who admires great athletes.

  6. I have read so many content regarding the blogger lovers but this paragraph is in
    fact a good post, keep it up.

  7. This can take a lot of time but is needed for a general dentist to make wise professional decisions.
    These chemicals interfere with the communication
    between neurons. There are many different types of dental
    lasers, but all can be classified as one of two
    kinds: Hard or Soft Tissue Dental Lasers.

  8. Can I simply say what a comfort to find someone who actually understands what they’re talking about over the internet. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people must read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

  9. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  10. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  11. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  12. I enjoy reading a post that will make people think. Also, thank you for permitting me to comment!

  13. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  15. Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you writing this write-up and also the rest of the site is also very good.

  17. It’s hard to come by experienced people for this subject, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  19. Right here is the right blog for everyone who hopes to find out about this topic. You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a topic that’s been written about for decades. Great stuff, just wonderful!

  22. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you should write more about this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t speak about these topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

  23. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  24. It’s nearly impossible to find experienced people on this topic, however, you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
