    DirectTV claims to increase prices less than half the industry standard. What is the industry? In the US, their competitor is Dish Network. DirectTV claims in the 2012 Viacom dispute that the Viacom channels cost hundreds of millions of dollars yet a 30% increase is over $1 billion? DirectTV claims to increase its prices only 4% a year - and that 4% is the lowest of any provider. What are the real historic price increases? Where do they get their info from?

  • Does walmart admatch match almost identical products? Same product but different upc.?

    Considering that walmart carries some store specific name brand products (ie store specific upc codes), do they use that as an escape clause to not match prices from other stores? Any other problems with or resistance from individual stores?

  • Is the galaxy s3 going to be released soon on verizon or do I need to switch carriers?

    I like verizon's coverage by far, but I don't like their delays in getting the newer models compared to their competition. I would like to stay with verizon, but if they do like they did with the s2, their isn't much incentive to stay.

  • What is the largest country in the world without any expressways?

    Not sticking to any country's specific definition of what an 'expressway' is other than the idea of restricted access, no cross traffic, and ramps to intersecting highways. I was thinking Democratic Republic of the Congo but there is a stretch of Boulevard Lumumba.

  • What time will the rapture be may 21 2011?

    I have seen answers of solar noon, 9th hour (mid afternoon), and sunset in Jerusalem and a variety of times on our secular clock (usually on the hour). What is the real time being prophesied? Please include links to authoritative webpages - family radio or camping's writings, not forums arguing over the time.

  • I found some old pizza in the bottom of my freezer. Is it still good and is it safe to eat?

    It is over five years old. It is a shrink wrapped large cheese pizza two pack bought at Walmart then frozen the same day. There is just a little frost inside the top of the wrapper and it has been kept frozen the whole time. It looks good and the little bit of frost should come right off.

    If you look at the questions in some sections (especially personal finance), the majority of the answers are often spammers. It isn't like the posters are dumb enough to not realize they are breaking the terms of service for participating in Answers and many of them are multi's with their url's going to websites advertising the same referral schemes for identical referral account numbers. Two questions: 1. Why doesn't Answers do a better job blocking the spammers and scammers? 2. How many spam posts do you think will make it into this question telling me how to get FREE MONEY or MAKE MONEY NOW or FIND A JOB or get ONLINE WORK?
