    Wake Up Sheeple!

    Lol at corporate slavery.

    The basic principles of free market is that YOU the consumer/ individual is free to do anything. If it doesn't work for you it's because you are not skilled nor intelligent to capitalize on system.

    Does it have it's flaws? Sure.. but it's the best idealogical and political system to live in.

    Laissez faire bitches.

    • there's a big flaw in your rant, the individual is not free to do anything, you are basically just free to do as told, exit that path and see how free you areGeorgesII
    • I have to agree with GII. you are free to the extent the parameters allow. but at a time when your rights are stomped you have more sexual independence.yurimon
    • there are little things that help create some illusion of a great freedom.yurimon

    Under Armor

    Regardless of the logo's quality here are the important things to consider, and I'm sure they have at this point.

    Success + Millions spent on advertising and endorsements = Equity in the mark.

    Changing it at this stage would be like throwing money out of the window and then necessitate an even bigger spend to recoup that equity. Best case scenario they make it suck a little less every few years, but even this doesn't matter.

    Missing this point is why some people don't take designers seriously.

    That said, the logo could have been better, but it functions in all the ways a logo needs to function. You're wrong for wanting it to be better, just for thinking that it matters.

    Just bought tickets to the Jesus and Mary Chain Psycho candy 30th anniversary show. Haven't seen them live in 23 years. As you can imagine by my username...this band has had a profound impact on my life. Gonna be riding the wall of sound nostalgia wave high as the moon

    • wow, I once saw them at a backyard party in the early 90s, no joke, at a friend's housemonospaced

    I think I'm going to delete all my music files. I have about 9,000 songs on iTunes. It should clear up about 50GB of space.

    With everything available on Spotify and Youtube, why would I need personal mp3 files? Can anyone think of a reason to keep them?

    • sound quality, for starters... also the ability to listen offline is easier when you have the track filesmonospaced
    • crazy how .mp3 files are a thing of the past. I use spotify, and sync tracks for offline usefourth
    • the tracks i burned from CDs years ago sounds sooo much better than any streaming service, it's pretty crazymonospaced
    • I can't seem to tell the difference. I think the quality on Spotify is good, and even Youtube is fine for just jamming out while working. I'm no audiophile.iCanHazQBN
    • I might shell out the $10/mo. for Spotify, but not sure how offline-play works.iCanHazQBN
    • youtube? really? it takes up ram. and stupid ads.pango
    • I listen to music at home on my big system, and the good pre-amp and speakers really highlight any extra compression... so yeah, it's differentmonospaced
    • I have Adblock for YT. If I use YT, it's for random songs I haven't heard in a while and to reminisce over the video. Doesn't have to be perfect quality.iCanHazQBN
    • Yeah if you have an amazing system you notice it. I guess I'm not serious about sound, I have small speakers, and the idea of free HD space is nice.iCanHazQBN
    • The only other reason I would keep them is in the rare case that one of those streaming systems ceases to exist or function, etcmonospaced
    • I have such a personal issue with crossing over to streaming services. I can't really pinpoint why, but I feel dirty using the free spotify/rhapsody/etc...stoplying
    • Dirty? They play ads. It's like listening to the radio, except you have more control over what plays. I think the $10/mo is worth it for no ads & full control.iCanHazQBN
    • In clocking around 33,000 iTunes. Keep my library on an external to use at work and home. Is this now an old person thing to do?Xopher

    • If you pay the Spotify subscription, you get better audio quality. I deleted a lot of stuff. I have my Jazz library on vinyl anywaymarychain
    • No reason to delete when storage is cheaper than ever. What do you need that 50 gigs of space for? I love my mp3ssarahfailin
    • I'm down to like 8GB on my laptop and am waiting for the next Macbook Pro. I could use the space. Don't want to buy another external HD.iCanHazQBN
    • You might need to DJ a party using Mp3s.omg
    • Well, you can set up playlists on Spotify. I think you can do everything on Spotify as on iTunes, with the benefit of not having to store files.iCanHazQBN
    • Can you burn that special mix to CD for your girlfriend on Spotify?omg
    • You can't import music directly from Spotify to a music sequenceromg
    • if you want to listen to songs adfree without paying monthly charges, you are better off on iTunes or your own mp3somg
    • You can only use visualizer on iTunes. Spotify has no visualizeromg

    • The idea of putting everything onto a HD is not appealing. Then what? They'll just sit there. If they're out of sight, they're out of mind.iCanHazQBN
    • ... I'll never listen to them if every time I wanna hear something I gotta grab my HD, plug it in, find the song. Not practical.iCanHazQBN
    • Someone said what about "road trips, vacation, parties?" Spotify has "available offline" option. Can have playlists and everything.iCanHazQBN
    • Also has a nice option. If a song is playing on my computer, I can hit the play button on the phone app and it seamlessly starts playing on my phone. Very cool.iCanHazQBN

    Conspiracy of the day

    honestly, I may have repeated it like 20 times in this thread,

    are there people that still can't believe conspiracies exist or happen?

    who nuttier, the person that nit picks the craziest conspiracies to make a point or the person that just shows some informations no matter how out there they are and let you do your own research,

    I think it's intellectual laziness to always depend on others to tell you me what I should believe or not believe

    • I've actually been quietly mentioning the Hastings thing on other forums since the recent car hacks. To me it was fishy then, downright fishmarket now.detritus

    Donald Trump Hate Thread

    It'd be interesting to see how much of his personal brand (great negotiator, great at business, great at making money etc) is actually based on reality.

    in other words, the only one I've ever heard say what a great business man he is, is him.

    is he? I'd heard that in reality he essentially took over the family fortune, and did rather poorly with it, in terms of how his father had done...a lot of mis-management, bad decisions etc...

    now, on the other hand, what if it's true?
    what if he is a really good business man, negotiator, captain of industry etc...

    would that be a good idea to have him take the reigns for a few years and try and recover some of America's manufactoring and other work that's gone away in recent years?...

    just thinking is all....

    I'm a canuck, and view all this from a distance, and with a certain amount of entertainment value etc....
    but I do actually wonder if he really IS a good businessman..and if so, maybe he'd be an 'ok' choice...

    like, wouldn't he be as good or better than Reagan for example?..that guy was a washed up actor turned politician....
    maybe something like this wouldn't be so bad...

    • was watching news this morning with NH citizens saying that Trump is a great businessman and that they believe this is something they need in a Pres.monospaced
    • Personally, I'm quite wary of a big business kind of guy actually looking out for everyday small people's interests.monospaced
    • was thinking that myself, but usually it's more 'corporations' that scare me, as they tend to dehumanize people, whereas trump is just him. trump.exador1
    • and he seems to inspire quite a bit of loyalty from those that work for him.exador1
    • I haven't got a horse in this race, i just find it really fascinating....curio... to see if he'd be a decent prez or a psycho...exador1
    • although i detest his arrogance, taste, hair, etc, etc...it'd be amazing to see him turn america around etc etc...return to glory days etc..exador1
    • word...same here. Trump Organization is basically a massive corporationmonospaced
    • would be amazing to see anyone turn around America... but just claiming you can isn't enough, right now people need to know how, and he's not offering that upmonospaced
    • agreed... and he IS a pretty polarizing figure...(if some folks claim Obama is, certainly Trump is in the reverse...)exador1
    • the way he talks about other institutions and leaders is so disrespectful, childish and naive that I question his ability to actually work with anyone productivmonospaced
    • have you guys worked with re developers? I do, everyday. Don't trust them for anything, everything is about getting more from people for less.formed

    Conspiracy of the day

    so you nutjobs heard about this september 23 2015 thing..

    conspiracies range from Meteor about to come and wipe us out, to the LHR at Cern opening portals to the underworld..

    Statements like “500 days to avoid climate chaos,” said by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said alongside Secretary of State John Kerry ..in which the date 500 days from when he said it also aligns with the september 23 2015 isnt helping..

    Also apparently the Pope is visiting Washington DC that day..

    One thing which i came across today while foraging in this rabbit hole, was the number 5125.. that whole Mayan calandar Buktun thing was 5125 years long.. but incidentally between September 11 2001 and September 23 2015.. is 5125 days.. which is also 120,000 hours..

    strangely enough, i googled 123000 hours and september 11, and there was a hit..
