Yeah, I heard about Makers watering things down this morning, at least they are honest I suppose. I'm not sure why they didn't allow the law of supply and demand to take effect and raise the price, instead of diminishing their product and not lowering the price.
all bourbons are "watered down". the stuff comes out of the still at like 150 proof.
I know, I prefer it to stay above 90 proof. I like to sip it, and not have to consume a ton of it to get a good buzz. Dropping down to 80 proof is extremely unappealing and to me, feels like there is more to it than simply demand outstripping supply.

That's why I mentioned it, I'm afraid they will lower the proof of Knob Creek and others. It wasn't a knock on the brand, the rest of the sentence that you quoted contained the reason why I even mentioned that Beam owns both.
"I know Maker's creates Knob Creek, I just hope they don't lower that from 50%."
My fear is that they will successfully further dilute Maker's and start to do the same with the rest of their stable.

Yes. Even I have ADT/Eclipse up and running and I'm completely Java disabled. The lack of Android support or plugins so far for Netbeans is a little annoying, perhaps whoever gets up and running first gets the developer interest.

You could always use Mono in Visual Studio. Failing that, you could use something like Phonegap in Visual Studio.
I've been meaning to get around to evaluating Appcelerator Titanium. Looking into it superficially, there are certain advantages to it as it compiles down to native code, but it's a closed SDK so you couldn't use it with things like jQuery.
