Maya Mendoza answers:
What is your expertise? In engineering? Printing? Colour theory? Paper? Electronics? Networking?
If you think you have a workable design, and you have some evidence it actually works, contact a patent lawyer and then the printer manufacturers.
Is Obama cashing in on something that should be free?
AP Exclusive: Obama policy book coming out Sept. 9
“Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama’s Plan to Renew America’s Promise” is coming out Sept. 9 as a paperback with an announced first printing of 300,000 copies and a list price of $13.95. Looking ahead to the digital market, the e-book, also $13.95, will go on sale the day before.”
Nothing personal about Obama but if he is running for the Whitehouse and he wants to write a book about his policies, then shouldn’t the entire information contained in the book be also avaiable to voters… FREE of charge.
if not, does that mean the rich get to know of the details of Obama’s policies but voters don’t??
girl, if that’s all the details Obama was putting in the book, then there wouldn’t be a need for a book
Jupiter – Someone supposedly profiting from oil prices, is a lot different than a candidate charging people to know what his policies are.

Does this news article about textbook piracy make any sense?
A textbook case of piracy
By Alex Beam
Globe Columnist / September 9, 2008
I was heartened to learn that college kids are wielding the same Internet piracy tools they used to bring down the recording industry to download textbooks. Although the textbook oligopolists are fighting back mightily – the Association of American Publishers uses Covington & Burling, a take-no-prisoners law firm in Washington, D.C., to hunt down malefactors – there are at least two sites still around offering books: Textbook Torrents tends to be shut down, and moves around the Web, but the last time I checked, thepiratebay.org was offering such books as – well, you’ll see.
As a writer, how can I support this? I should be an absolutist on copyright protection for all books, magazines, and newspapers. But I’m not. The publishers have disgraced themselves, and they are paying the price. Three-hundred-dollar textbooks in the hard sciences are not unusual, and the companies are selling to a captive audience. Hundred-dollar add-ons, masquerading as digital workbooks, or problem-solving sets, are not uncommon.
Publishers love to put out bogus “new” editions to drive a stake though the heart of the used textbook market, which was gaining its second wind at online auction sites. It’s not as if calculus changed since Newton invented it, is the rallying cry you hear from student activists.
How do I know textbook publishers are nothing but pirates in pin-striped suits? Because when the fast-buck artists take over a company like Houghton Mifflin, they never talk about how proud they are to be publishing Philip Roth and J.R.R. Tolkien. They know they are going to make a killing in the profit-choked textbook division, which gorges on the goodwill of parents who want their children to be properly equipped for college courses.
Now most textbook publishers are going digital, and Amazon is promising a larger-format Kindle reader for the student market. The publishers say that iTexts, which often cost less than $100, save students money. But their opponents, led by a coalition of Student Public Interest Research Groups, point out that the password-protected digi-texts put the sword to the used-book market so despised by the publishers.
Congress has gotten into the act, legislating more “transparency” in textbook pricing in the just-passed Higher Education Opportunity Act. It looks like a jumble of half-measures to me. If it had any teeth, the publishers would be squawking madly.
A young Northeastern University student named Shawn Fanning wrung billions of dollars of excess profits from the record companies when he invented Napster. Yes, it’s true that recording “artists” now gouge young people 10 times more aggressively at the concert turnstiles than they ever did at Tower Records stores, which no longer exist around here. But Steve Jobs found the right price point for music at iTunes. Between the pirates and the publishers, we’ll find our way to the right price point for textbooks, too.
Now it’s time to arbitrage . . . tuition.
Don’t steal this book
Inevitably, a reviewer will call John Hanson Mitchell, author of “The Paradise of All These Parts: A Natural History of Boston,” a latter-day Henry David Thoreau, not necessarily a compliment. Call him what you will – in real life, he edits the Massachusetts Audubon Society magazine Sanctuary – he is a smart guy, walking around, paying attention. I’d name his genre nostalgic realism; Mitchell certainly knows where this city and its many peculiar institutions come from, and he understands modernity as well.
I love that his brother owns a boat named after Richard Henry Dana, and that it doesn’t have an engine – there’s Boston in a nutshell. I think this book will take its place next to Walter Muir Whitehill’s “Boston,” with engravings by Rudolph Ruzicka, as one of the treasured Hub tomes of our time.
Able was I . . .
Ere I saw Alaska? Send in your Sarah Palin-dromes! A palindrome is a phrase that makes sense read forward and backward – e.g., “Madam, I’m Adam.” I think there’s a lot to work with here: Is Levi vile? Close, but no cigar. I’ll buy the winner a used copy of the kind of book that Governor Palin wanted to keep out of her local library – “Huckleberry Finn,” perhaps.

Don’t you hate people that spell loses as “looses”
I lost my websties/bookmarks, please recommend me some…?
6 months ago my laptop fried itself and I’ve only recently just had a new one built, the trouble is I can’t remember all the websites I used to hae bookmarked.
I had oodles of sites, everything from gaming, to technology, to sites like prank vote (comedy) to alternative (pseudo sciences) to news sites to online marketing forum/work forums – similar to digital point to torrent sites (for legal downloads) to random/cool sites.
Now as my brain has gone through and excessively tried to remember all it can I’m still sure there are sites that I have missed and left out. All the sites I used to visit made me years ahead of the game, for example, I would see something on the net 1-2 years before the masses started emailing it and showing it on tv news/stations.
I’ve already bookmarked a ton, like youtube, twitter, dailymotion etc…but nevertheless, if you guys have any sites that are in your favourites and you think I’ve forgotten to add them then please share them with me.
Also if you have any new sites/cool sites or even sites that have only come online in the last 6-7 months I’ve been without a pc/the net, then please also share them.
The person with the most unique and relevant sites will be awarded the best answer. Please don’t link to porn, sales sites or illegal sites of that nature.
Thanks and I look forward to your contributions,
Maya Mendoza answers:
That sucks! I feel for you. I have lost 2 computer’s memory including all my stuff so I know how you feel.
I dont know many good sites to recommend, but if you download stumbleupon you can set your preferences and stumble the web and find some really great stuff. And why would you want to be years ahead of the internet? I hate when I know something years before its big. Like songs and artists especially.

Can you suggest me anyway of showing it on Realty TV or something so that i can get rid of this asap.
The address is 1123 N 104th St ,Mesa,AZ
Maya Mendoza answers:
There is a reason realtors are not interested much in this property. As much as YOU seem to love it, this is a strange property, and probably won’t bring at market what you think it will.
In our area, we have similar issues with earth homes, geodesic domes, or any other type of residence which varies substantially from ‘conventional’. These types of homes need special buyers who also like the same things you like. Do not expect a quick sale, and do not expect offers at anywhere near full price.
As much as I hate to tell you this, your idea of a ‘dream home’ is YOURS, and not necessarily everyone else’s dream. These are the chances you take when you elect to build a house which is ‘out of the ordinary’.
