Re: Stroller/Carriage Master Thread My wife went back and forth between the Mountain buggy duet, valco , and Citi mini gt. Eventually settled with the city mini gt. Pros and cons:
Valco
Pros: separate "belly" bar,  light weight
Cons: no track record , feels " cheap"
Mountain Buggy
Pros: Narrow, strong, big wheels
Cons: heavy , air filled wheels (air loss, flats) , doesn't fold easily or flat.
City mini gt
Pros: easiest to fold , large foam filled wheels , folds flattest of all, easy to push
Cons: one "belly bar", very wide ,

Re: Laptop Deals Master Thread
bit the bullet on the miix 700.
Will report back after I take it for a spin. The main reason I chose the miix 700 is because I will either be using it at my desk or walking through a facility while taking notes.
Portability is amazing. It's light as a feather (lighter than any laptop I've ever held), tablet detaches quite easily but keyboard also folds back like other 2 in 1s, either way automatic prompt to enter tablet mode. I find it to be a fully functioning laptop when in laptop mode and a fully functioning tablet in tablet mode.
It's sturdier than I imagined in laptop mode.
Lenovo WritIt is pretty much the only software I kept from Lenovo and it works pretty well.
Pros:
Portability
Light as a feather
Bundled with keyboard and pen
Digital pen (vs. capacitive stylus)
WriteIt
Front and rear cameras
Processing power seems up to par
Windows 10 pro

Cons:
Trackpad - small, sometimes overly sensitive, other times non responsive
Only 2 USB ports - one is the charger and there other is the  pen holder. ( this helps out )

Re: Laptop Deals Master Thread
has anyone ever try a touch screen on a laptop I feel like it might be too shaky
I'd say most DDFr's probably have touchscreen laptops. Welcome to the future

Re: Interesting Articles...

I am not saying that the Taxi medallion business model is right,

that's gotta be the understatement of the year.
The NYC medallion system is legalized racketeering. I can't see it making sense in any universe, to pay a million dollars for the privilege to drive/own a taxi. It defies the law of supply and demand.

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now!
I definitely understand the idea of being more 'machmir' so not eating the food they serve and there isn't anything wrong with it technically.  But at the end of the day there is something that doesn't feel right about the whole thing. Something that feels off about it. The whole spirit of it. Inviting people to eat food that you somewhere don't think is good enough. I can't quite put it into words but it seems wrong and not in the right kavana of the whole Yom Tov.
it's called a buisness not hachnasas orchim

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now!

Certain heimeshe soda brands have a distinct flavor, so much so that they must be making it themselves. Anyways as far as a mashgiachs job goes, he's the one supposed to authorize anything.
the distinct flavour is the same flavour that other brands that you've never seen or tasted have. There is another concept known as co-packing where you bring your recipe to a company and they produce it to your spec.
The Rav Hamachshir authorizes, a mashgiach supervises.
In your case you may be right, but many heimeshe products are not produced with hashgacha temidis

Re: FBI Raids Orthodox Homes
cant believe that people are stealing from the government, and even worse from the rest of lakewood
everyone pays more taxes because everyone is on programs.

maybe now the taxes will go down?
Taxes don't go down.
As a side note, I know someone who was unemployed, collecting medicaid, unemployment, and food stamps. He then got a job in another state and reported to all 3 agencies that he he got a job out of state and was no longer eligible for services. the only agency that canceled him was unemployment. Recently he told that he still gets gets letters from medicaid office and his current food stamps balance is over $10000.
Obviously he doesn't touch it but for legal purposes he   maintains every document that he ever sent them. So the govt should be arrested for being completely incompetent and tying up taxpayer dollars endlessly in the "system". it almost makes one say that t least with fraud someone benefited. In this case the money is just going to disappear. I can just imagine the accounting nightmare when some wakes up one and discovers thousands of such cases with millions tied up but never spent.

Re: Prison
Maybe it is maybe it isn't, but to think that you can find the way to beat it by reading a book or being trained in some trading system is ridiculous. Pure randomness will include some random success stories. Even if on some level it is not purely random, and considering that it has humans involved it probably isn't, the idea that the system can be beaten by checking some publicly available charts and simple back testing is ridiculous. The Graham market theory of trading short term volatility for long term gains makes sense and is not "beating the system" but being paid for a constructive part in the system. Day trading is not that.
But Online Trading Academy promised...........
