    Here’s where I set the bar, a.k.a. the latte test. If you can go pick up a cup of latte anytime you feel like, without feeling any financial constraint, you’ve made it.

    How entitled have Americans gotten? They will only feel wealthy if they feel zero financial constraints (per the video)? That’s particularly horrifying given society’s increasing obsession with status symbols and luxury items.

    You can take comfort in the fact that the best things in life are still free, like hair on your head – especially if it’s long enough for a ponytail

    The commentator doesn’t really think this is a good thing. The scariest thing about this is that, if you leave the video window open, WSJ took me to another video clip with Hanson doing some sort of an unplugged thing. Hanson?

    I love WSJ, my parents still get the print version and when I was down there visiting, my mom showed me an article about Larry’s island in Hawaii that was perhaps the most offensive puff piece I’ve ever read in my life. Apparently he’s dating a grad student now, which according to my mom is ok if you’re a multibillionaire.

    #4- I thought Larry only dated his secretaries.

    Apple contractor is looking to hire 90K workers

    Seriously? Can you imagine what would happen to home prices here if Apple did not outsource these jobs?

  7. DreamT Says:

    Apple wouldn’t stay competitive and Cupertino prices would tank?

    Maybe Foxconn needs those people because Pegatron is losing some business?

    The foreign suitcases of cash must come from somewhere.
