    ok then go buy it in the shop its still better than downlaoding from limewire
    and yes it is, music sales have plummted whilst illgeal downloads have rocketed which is causing the industry to contract
    CD sales have plummeted. They are obsolete. Are you going to blame pirates for the decrease in cassette tape sales?..no. The music industry needs to innovate and until it does, I'm all for file-sharing. Show me a DRM free, subscription based download service with every song I want, then we can talk.

    I think the kid has got his career and life path set now.

    Although he claims to have understood the banks in a week...
    He has, he now knows how bankers are easily impressed with obvious things.:p: But some of the obvious things he has wrote in his article appear to be just things nerds are into, not all of us like talking over the phone whilst playing COD4 or want a touch screen phone.

    It is quite funny, how everyone knows what he's saying.. (hell, I even knew before I was 15 that internet ads are a waste of space, after a while you tune out and manage to completely ignore them) .. but he's the one getting all the credit for pointing it out.
    i no its like an opinion that doesnt even need to be voiced its that obvious i bet he gets paid for his report too and becomes like really famous.. and its like common sense noones gonna look at any of the interesting internet ads anyways cos theyre scared its like a scam company anyways and would prefer to google the website than click the ad and get a virus

    But honestly, this isn't exactly "breaking news", everyone knew it anyway.

    In other words, get a representative of the market research they're trying to do to compile a list themselves, and gain a greater insight than can be gleaned from purely asking them.

    So basically:

    Dog molests another dog.
    Dogs' owners chat.
    Chat results in son lucking a work experience placement.
    Son states obvious.
    Son has life set out for him.

    And they say you need to work hard to do well in life :lolwut:

    Is he implying that twitter costs money, or did I just read that wrong? :wtf:

    Also I really fit into very little of what he's talking about. This is creating a strange sensation of pride.

    I think we all overestimate the adult world's ability to understand and relate to young people. The fact that stuff like this isn't common knowledge shows that even in 'the city' where there are loads of young yuppie types, they're still out of touch with the younger generation.

    I mean, some of it isn't quite true, but quite a lot of it is and I'm 19. I'm sure for 15 year olds most of it holds true.
