What say the esteemed posters of tRant regarding Miller? I've looked up his stats and he averaged over 1,100 yards rushing and 2,000 yards passing in each of his last two seasons. He's responsible for 84 career TD's in only 36 career games.
Would his addition to the roster be a net negative or p...

...and it's excellent. But here's my issue. I have a Space Gray iPhone 6 and the cover is solid black when the phone's not in use. Bigtime contrast.
So now I'm interested in finding a skin to put on it. I use an el-cheapo Radio Shack clear case on it now that's $7.99 or whatever. But I'm wonderin...

Whatcha think? Looking to buy a non ridiculously priced pair of sunshades. Bought some Maui Jims a few years ago but I was just not careful enough and they got jacked up over time. Finally lost them on the Diversion Canal.
I just can't see dropping close to 200...and I'd rather spend half that if...

$199 HP laptop tat runs full blown Windows 8.1. Has multiple USB's, HDMI. It also has full blown Office for a year, with both online and offline access. There's also a TB of cloud storage that comes with it.
I'm trying to find a reason not to buy two of these as a replacement for my 2007 vintage...

I've scratched the surface of SQL. If by scratch the surface you mean like scratching the surface of a scratch-off lottery ticket I mean.
Anyway, I was talking with a family member last night whose actually going to have some downtime upcoming over the Holidays. We are both interested in learnin...

What would the positives and negatives be of Coach Ed "Bay Bay" Orgeron being added to the LSU Football Defensive Staff?
Do you have a personal opinion of him outside of what you think the positives and negatives are? Would you be so kind to share them with the group?...

I'm stuck with the Outlook web app and I guess I've never tried to use it this way but I'm having trouble. Let me explain:
I want to send specific screen caps or snippets and I'm using Word 2010 in place of the Insert>Screenshot>Screen Clipping feature in Outlook. They both operate in the same ma...

It seems to be a hot/in-demand field currently. But what are the realities of locally and regionally for this field of study/expertise in terms of job opportunities?

Between Honda, Yamaha and Kipor I think I'm gonna go Kipor. But what's the minimum wattage to use? I don't want a KISS concert or even music really. We want a TV, the Box and probably a Tailgater Satellite setup. Maybe a cold AC setup.
How much wattage do I need? How small-or large-should I go, a...

You hadn't converted a third down in the 2nd half. You had a shade over 100 yards of total offense in over 29:00 minutes of offensive football. But when it counted, you executed brilliantly down the field and converted time after time. Without a timeout. Without any margin for error.
There were s...

So I read on Twitter that Swift has pulled her entire catalog off of all streaming sites except for Rdio. Her distribution is through Universal but she has a much, much larger control of her music, catalog and thus her career compared to other artists as she uses her own label to release her music.

I want to upgrade my wife, my mother and I (they're on my plan). The problem is I have to pay $900 now and can't get the discount from the trade ins till they arrive.
I'm not chunking down a thousand dollars and putting it to sleep. But this offer is only good through the end of the month.
