    1. It used to take ONE step to display Favorites. Now, it takes multiple steps to get there. Plus, once there, they first appear in a grid of rectangular icons, not the tab bar. It isn’t until you tap on an icon that the tabbed set of favorites appears. Please return to the old method!

    2. Some of us do not care to receive Notifications at all. How many likes ormteplies we get is of no interest. Please give us the option of turning them off!

    Could be both! LOL! The tax cut for the uber-rich is the war on Christmas!

    Pretty sure it was tongue-in-cheek!

    2017 was memorable — it saw lots more exoplanets discovered and many in the habitable zone!

    Floppies weren’t that expensive at all.

    We double-notched them to double the storage because it was convenient, felt like one was pulling a fast one, and felt like getting a free lunch.

    But a box of floppies did not cost not all that much.

    Just wish that this hadn’t ended right before Christmas! Should have been after the New Year… could have been part of a story about resolutions and new beginnings!

    Merry Christmas, all!

    Might not be “peachy”, but sure would be better!

    Those so-called Apple fanboys fall mostly into two camps: the ones who are among the company’s fiercest critics and those who buy Apple because they value good customer service, find the products useful and engaging, and enjoy the low support costs. Any look at the Apple discussion forums will show you the first group in spades.

    Always love how the insecure Droid and Win-doze crowd crows on and on about Apple buyers being fanboys! Especially as they are ones who are buying what the masses do!

    Well, that tops the charts for unexpected, out of place, crude comments for the day!

    Jupiter’s moons Ganymede and Europa likely have subsurface oceans of water.

    Likewise, Saturn’s moons Enceladus and, possibly, Titan and others.

    CMXX has it right! Most of the historical evidence we have on U.S. students and adults’ general knowledge, including geography, history, vocabulary, mathematics, and literature, shows glaring deficiencies. They go back a century, in fact!

    There never was a golden age, so all these pat explanations don’t work — e.g., that geography used to be a formal subject (but it was never taught or learned very well); kids were more disciplined in my day (no, they weren’t); we’re not spending as much time on academics as we used to (in fact, academic study and curricula have remained steady or even increased!); etc.

    There simply is no credible evidence that academic achievement is in a major decline! It’s not great, but then it never was!

    Given all the distractions, the tough conditions so many grow up in, the massive inequalities in quality of education and school funding, it’s amazing scores and achievement have remained as steady as they have!

    As to U.S. students and geography, it’s also worth noting that at least one major international geography comparison showed U.S. students performing about average internationally!

    We really need to put away for good these “In my day, I had to walk 5 miles to school, through deep snow, and everyone learned and academic achievement was high.” Just not true!
