The real myth is that effects of meditation are verifiable with double blind controlled rial http://t.co/MMVOpEwmsj but Ommm awayAlmost all of the pundits you follow don't get Apple #pricingWere folks saying "AOL keyword awesome" etc. in the 90s? Then why're they saying now "hashtag awesome" while talking ?Those who don't understand value of time are going to stand in line for Apple Watch. Ironic?@chetansharma but then since this is in Quartz, we must assume the blogger didn't look at right places for data
