You guys can come up with all sorts of hashkafic theories why this is not good.

End of the day it all depends on whether they can make it work without chilul Shabbos. That's the only thing that's relevant.

Stop wasting my time reading all your BS. Post that on your toilet walls. No one is interested to read it.

Keep this up and your wife is going to grow her hair long.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

And you try acting like the frummie here (while I know you watch 24), and one day your wife will shave her head.

OK. All it takes it two words: Uvdin dechol. It is ossur. No ifs or buts.
There is absolutely nothing else to discuss from a halachic perspective.
I challenge anyone to find a posek who is a Ben yeshiva (not a collage grad with a degree in "halachic theory") who will not categorically dismiss this on the uvdin dechol basis.

And what if all I want to use it for is too access my Otzar Hachochmoh?

I don't understand why everyone is resorting to Haskafah when there are so many clear halachic issues.

Whois search came up with this-

Registrant Name: Yossi Goldstein
Registrant Organization:
Registrant Street: 1600 Broadway
Registrant City: Denver
Registrant State/Province: Colorado
Registrant Postal Code: 80202
Registrant Country: United States
Registrant Phone: +1.3038678505
My wife doesn't know of any Yossi Goldstein, but she said Broadway is a street on the West Side. We have a West Sider here on DDF, perhaps he can join the conversation and let us know if he knows this Yossi?

It is really refreshing to see that so many here know what G-d wants.

Ummm, I would say so. Being that He let us know precisely what He wants in the Torah and Halacha.

It wasn't given to us as some riddle to decode, or as some vague mystical idea, but rather as a practical guide how to live life.

I am not trying to be funny with this question. Some religions believe their book/laws were written by G-D. Was the Torah written by G-D or was it written like the Bible?

I'm going to skip the second half of your sentence for now. And as for the first half, yes, Torah was absolutely written by G-D.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

On the new iOS 8 you can talk to Siri when plugged in w/o pressing any buttons. You just say "hey Siri". How would that work halachicly?

Is this the way it happened?

didn't read the whole thing, but it definitely sounds like it's talking in the right direction...
