Squeaky clean, uncool and old before her years, the US singer blazed a trail for young women creating their own material. Having dealt with stalkers, addiction and illness, she’s backThirty-three years ago – in musical terms, an epoch – Debbie Gibson was the most famous American teen pop star on earth. At 17 she was as loved by teenagers as Billie Eilish was at 17, in polar opposite ways. Gibson, uncool and critically dismissed, was the wholesome, toothsome innocent who sang upbeat, unapologetic...

'If Apple Keeps Letting Its Software Slip, the Next Big Thing Won't Matter'

If Apple can't improve the reliability of its software, the next big thing won't matter, argues Dan Moren in an opinion piece for Macworld. From the report: Uneven distribution: As sci-fi writer William Gibson famously said, "the future is already here -- it's just not evenly distributed." While Gibson's comment resonates mostly on a socio-economic level that is borne out by Apple's not inexpensive technology, it's also embodied geographically by the company's work: if you're interested, you can...

Staley was probably being his toughest critic because the Rams were actually very good on defense last year, leading the league in total defense and scoring defense. But Staley couldn’t afford to sit ba...

Author: ATLMikeyD Posted: Thu Sep 09, 2021 3:06 pm (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 2 I love the Vintage C shape on both the Antique S and T models.
