  • 07:05 @ahmadnassri It is a security measure to fool the terrorists. :-) #
  • 07:24 @JenKirkman $3000 could do a lot of good in Africa. Sending a North American teen, not so much #
  • 07:34 @JackieBeFit How do know if they are American or not? #
  • 07:42 @jdupervil What make countries rich are natural resources devided by population.Haiti has too many people for the limited natural resources #
  • 07:44 @jdupervil There are many African countries that had amazing infrastructure. But disrepair came quickly as they couldn't maintain it. #
  • 07:48 @ADHR Man, good thing all my books are on my iPhone. #
  • 10:38 @kevo777 Just search Zi8 -microsofttag and your problem is solved #
  • 10:44 @kevo777 Bestbuy prices are only good on their "bait" items. Avoid their "switch" items like plague. #zi8-microsofttag #
  • 10:47 When searching Twitter, remember to use the minus to exclude things. Example: Great place to live -Canada #
  • 10:50 @ADHR I should probably delete the bomb making guide I have on my iPhone, just in case they examin it. #
  • 10:56 To be safe, I'm registring iAltavistagoogle RT @CaliLewis: The red herrings just keep on coming for the Apple Tablet - bit.ly/6C70PT #
  • 11:08 @ScanMyPhotos If you can find it. Dito for accessories. #
  • 12:39 Got a $25 Logitec wireless mouse and keyboard from Staples Boxing day special. How I live without one before is beyond me. #
  • 12:42 If you have back issues, get a wireless keyboard. Being in control of how you sit is liberating. Well worth the money. #
  • 13:42 @litterthisheart But if they weren't so poor, they could eat out and do the other thing. #
  • 14:52 The anti Fahrenheit 451 RT @usembassyottawa Library of Congress gives free access to thousands of historic books online bit.ly/92SAAX #
  • 15:06 @ckueda bit.ly/8rh4P2 They go for Flip Ultra HD over Zi8,dito Macworld's Christopher Breen #
  • 15:22 Sorry @JenKirkman, but "42% of Rwandan children under five years old are malnourished" (UNICEF). You feed a lot of kids with $3,000 #
  • 15:28 @kaychiarello Rwandans need food, not Canadian teenagers! Make a difference: Send money so they can buy food! #
  • 15:36 @kaychiarello Education is very important. With money, they can higher local teachers who will be able to feed their families. #
  • 15:43 Rwanda has too many people for the country's limited natural resources. In that context, isn't it immoral to deny Rwandans entry to Canada? #
  • 15:44 If Canada accepted economic refugees, there would be fewer wars. Now give me a peace prize. #
  • 15:53 imho, sending teenage volunteers to Africa is a gross misallocation of resources. Rwandans can't eat teenagers. THEY NEED FOOD! #
  • 16:09 bitly.tv/5SSuew PC versus Mac, little girl style. #
  • 16:43 @kaychiarello With $3000, you could employ a teacher in Rwanda for 5 years. allafrica.com/stories/200906160739.html #
  • 16:57 @litterthish eart Buy the tickets on the Internet. (By the way, I didn't like the movie) #
  • 16:59 @jeffTWC Insult The Simpsons at your own risk. :-) #
  • 17:14 @kaychiarello That is exactly what the article says. They are doing other, more lucrative work. They make less than $600/year ! #
  • 17:23 @kaychiarello Qualified teachers in Rwanda make less than a dollar an hour. A teenager in Canada makes $9/hour. More effective to send $ #
  • 17:36 @kaychiarello The labour value of a Canadian 16 year old spending a month teaching in Rwanda is $50. But sending him costs $3000! #
  • 17:40 @kaychiarello The gift of time is great. But the gift of $ is many times more effective. #
  • 17:46 @kaychiarello Important to whoom? The starving Rwandan or the Canadian teenager? And yes, $3000 pretty much covers air fair. #
  • 17:57 @kaychiarello For $3000, you could hire the local teacher, buy everybody in the class books, feed everybody 3 meals a day, etc, etc, etc. #
  • 18:04 @kaychiarello You just spent the equivalent of 8 times the average yearly Rwandan salary to read me books. You better be dam good. #
  • 18:10 @kaychiarello Exactly! Because of the distance and different labour costs, money is many times more effective.Raising money to go: immoral. #
  • 18:59 @jdupervil ??? France is an agriculture power and the UK has oil AND coal. #
  • 19:03 @jdupervil You can't pay engineers with money you don't have. Be they local or from over seas. #
  • 19:05 @jdupervil I'm sorry, but the facts speak for themselves. Rich countries have valuable agricultural land or fish, poor countries don't. #
  • 19:07 @jdupervil Look at the wealth in Canada. Ontario and Alberta aren't rich because they have better schooling than New Brunswick and PEI ! #
  • 19:11 @jdupervil Compare Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Vastly different education and government and yet similar wealth. #
  • 19:15 @jdupervil If Haitians had a place to move to (like folks in Puerto Rico do), or a lower birth rate, like in Cuba,they would be better off . #
  • 19:16 @stratosphear Then how do you chose what movies you go to? #
  • 19:18 @jdupervil France: www.nationsencyclopedia.com/economies/Europe/France-AGRICULTURE.html #
  • 19:22 @stratosphear "Recommended by friends who don't tell me the whole plot?" That is a review. What you don't like are detailed reviews. #
  • 19:26 @stratosphear "You should see the film&qu ot; is a short review, but it qualifies as a review. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Review #
  • 19:34 @techdelight freeallmusic.com/ "Sorry this is only for US customers". #
  • 19:38 @BlondeNoa Amazon.com: "Not in stock". I bought a Zi8 for C$164 on Sunday. But the USA seems to have a Zi8 shortage.Plenty of Flip Ultra HD #
  • 19:53 @JeffreyHayzlett In Canada, where can I get the Zi8/Zx1 #1402486 KODAK Pocket Video Remote Control and #1764471 KODAK Adventure Mount ? #
  • 20:03 @coolamundo Where and at what price? The Zi8 is hard to find in the USA. #
  • 20:15 @coolamundo www.hsn.com has the Zi8 for $177. Best Buy.com: $230! #
  • 20:17 @Burakkocal hsn.com has the Zi8 for $170 plus $7 shipping. #
  • 20:19 @sivlam The Zi8 is $177 shipped right now at www.hsn.com. (And cheaper here in Canada!) #
  • 20:27 @Burakkocal Lol, here in Canada, the black Zi8 is cheaper! USA: Crunchfield.com has red, HSN.com has blue and, for $50 more: Bestbuy.com blk #
  • 20:28 @Gadget_Sage Out of stock #
  • 20:44 @thecreativeone Curious at to what class of SDHC card you bought for you Zi8. 2, 4 or 6? #
  • 20:47 From now on, all my typos can be blamed on the RF signal from my Logitech wireless keyboard. #
  • 20:59 Copy and paste and save as a twitter search for this city minus the spam. Moncto n -wxMONCTON -NewBrunswickJob -MonctonJobs #
  • 23:12 Note to online retailers. I'm not paying $15 to have something shipped by courier when Canada Post is cheaper and more convenient. Argh. #
  • 23:20 OK, so I found the zi8/zx1 remote (1402486) online. But it would cost C$21.25 including shipping (plus tax). Can anybody beat that? #
  • 23:32 @jdupervil 99% of wealth comes from natural resources. Some get temporarily lucky from trade, but those nations are the exception. #
  • 23:35 @jdupervil Look at the wealth distribution in Ontario. Where you have (or had) h igh yield agricultural land, you have wealth. #
