Do what you love, and love what you do and you too can be a billionaire..

Oh if life were really that simple.
Well, if you love what you are doing then money doesn't matter really. It's just an added plus.

A statement usually made by people who are not short of a bob or two.

I guess there is some truth to that. I love what I do (for the most part) immensely. I would gladly continue to do what I am doing even if I made a lot less money.

I like what I do and would gladly give it up to earn in the top tax bracket

Good! You won't mind paying a little more tax, then.

My point was, it's more user error than the quality of being a PC v Mac...shit still breaks and some folks still never have problems.

The in-laws shouldn't have so many problems, but being where they are up in Maine, when there are those recalls, by the time it comes to be up there, it's to late, talking of a few power supplies, a screen going, loads of plastic face plates crumbling. The apple care though, if you're able to get to a store is remarkably so much better than at most other techy places though....but it doesn't exist up in Maine anymore

Indeed, what rate, would bring it down to $70,000? better let Barack know.

I wouldn't want it above 50% at the highest rate. But a true 50% on all income, wherever it's derived.

Tell that to someone who's working 70 hours a week and barely brings home $13K a year....

It's easily to say do something you enjoy, but some folks have to put up with what life has thrown their way.

I don't envy those poor folks.
