He said people who were right a lot of the time were people who often changed their minds. He doesn’t think consistency of thought is a particularly positive trait. It’s perfectly healthy — encouraged, even — to have an idea tomorrow that contradicted your idea today.
Good advice from the Beez. Inability to change your mind is just stubbornness, and it should not be confused with "drive" or "determination."

Found somewhere on the Internet:
Pinterest is porn for women. They (male scientists) finally figured out how to get women to use the Internet for something other than shopping, and it is Pinterest. It's shopping without buying. Pretty brilliant.
We have good news. You are entitled to a credit for some of your past e-book purchases as a result of legal settlements between several major e-book publishers and the Attorneys General of most U.S. states and territories, including yours. You do not need to do anything to receive this credit. We will contact you when the credit is applied to your Amazon.com account if the Court approves the settlements in February 2013.

Woohoo! I have extended storage space through September 30, 2013!
Not that I use any of the space on iCloud. I download my mail and I don't store documents or files on iCloud. iTunes Match doesn't really count (it has its own limits IIRC) and I'm not close to meeting them. I don't even back up my iPhone to iCloud - I like having the backup on my computer, synced via iTunes1
With the cost of storage dropping it wouldn't surprise me if before September 30, 2013 all iCloud users are simply given the "increased storage space" option.
Though I'm open to hearing arguments why this is stupid, of course.↩
