If you have the ability to afford the $1500 explorder program (likely with another exchange option to send in old model for new one later down the line), do you opt in and buy Google Glass? Does anyone here feel like they'd have practical use for it to use it on a close-to daily basis?

If an employee at Store A knew they would be late and get fined $100, why not just not show up at all? Lets say that $100 a day is only half of their daily wage - If time is money, they'd be better off missing a day and 100% of their pay and finding something more constru...

I'm 100% sure madden 13 and madden 25 do not resume in the middle of the game if you power off your system or close the game and return to the dashboard. When you restart the game you're back to where you where before you started that particular game of the season. ...
