Re: American Apparel Ads

Gah, open this week's Isthmus, and there's yet another fleshy photo to offend the eyes.

Oh and there's another Silk ad in the back, too.

Re: Apple Store currently downloading Hilldale update

Apple's current US demographic is young (and heavily Asian, fwiw) . They want to stay that way, courting millennials as basically every brand in the world already is. Being within walking distance of the university has to be a huge draw. Though, as far as what demographic group spends the most money...

Apple Store currently downloading Hilldale update

I thought it was just an attention-seeking bogus rumor posted on Yelp ( see post dated 2/5/17 ). Then I thought, well, maybe it's possible. Then I called West Towne's mall office and they...they just blurted it out. The Apple Store is leaving the West Towne Mall for Hilldale. Seems like it's probabl...

Re: Secret plan near West Towne Mall

Exact is only just starting to recover from the initial Cologuard disaster from a few years ago and I believe they're still committed to expanding their current premises. If you mean that it's only just recently gotten back to where the stock price was pre-drop, then yes. But it's been going up ste...

Re: Death by Robbery

Who's gonna hack into ymbj's Netflix account and replace all his Wires and Law & Orders and Ozzes with some nice documentary filmmaking that features kindness and compassion? Seems like all you have to do to influence kid's perception of reality is put it in a movie.

His resume's not too far off from Sean Duffy's. Unless you're confusing the House with the Senate. Certainly less inane bullshit on Bryce's than on Duffy's.
