    How about a transcript of the conversation in this video? Believe it or not I can read it in a third or less of the time it takes them to say it... And I betcha I'm not flying solo here.

    Any chance for a consideration?

    I did not "read" this story because I could not "read" this story. (In light of that, what does it say that I actually took time to write this?)

    If we're not going to actually write an article, here, a transcript of the conversation would be useful in getting your message across to more people (who do not necessarily want to surf the internet at the speed of real-time conversation)....

    Thank you.

    I thought Anti Trust legislation, if found guilty, could see a company pay penalties of up to 10% of its TOTAL GLOBAL REVENUES. This would make things a bit different, no.?
