I'd have to wear the MM300 on my wrist before I became a true believer or not. But that MM300 needs sapphire and it doesn't have it.

Sounds like you need to get one. I like the MM300 but it does not have sapphire. I'd rather get the SBDB011, but those Seikos are too pricey, even used. My Orient Saturation Diver really does fill the bill for that category, especially on my Super Engineer.

The good news is that iTunes is syncing with my classic iPod. A lot of people had the problem and then the problem went away. Strange.
I hate iTunes' unnecessary complexity, seems very anti-Steve Jobs. I wonder if it would be easy to download podcasts on the Amazon Echo or Amazon Tap.
I may get an Amazon Tap, which can download podcasts and costs only 129 dollars. I heard Leo Laporte, the Tech Guy on 640 KFI, say Apple is in a slump. Sounds like they may never get out of it. Thanks for the words.
One. "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?" 374 Two. "On the Uses of a Liberal Education" 389 Three. "Gender, Class, and Terrorism" 588 Four. "How I Discovered the Truth About Poverty" 606 Five. "As the World Burns" on 694 can be compared to "Green Guilt"... Continue reading
