    So you take my point.


    See?

    Its a damn shame too, the US made some great equipment.

    At least with the US, and Japan/korea, well the latter are our friends.

    China is NOT our friend. They're an adversary, and thieves to boot.

    On the contrary.

    You can get an iphone repaired at any Apple store.

    I recall having an android break.

    Verizon made me wait 2 days for a refurb.

    Where would you send a Samsung Android? Two repair depots nationally I think.

    Wait 4-8 weeks, with no phone in the meantime.

    Apple store with an iphone? Can be within the day.

    Tanked????? soybeans dropped a whopping 2% to a 2 MONTH low

    "....Chicago soybeans for May delivery falling as much as 5 percent during Wednesday's session to a two-month low before settling down just over 2 percent to $10.167 per bushel."

    This is 5 yrs of soybean price data.

    Since I tend to eat a lot more food than I grow and sell, this looks good to me.
