4/12    Anyone know how services like http://upromise.com make money?  Seems to fall
        in the "anything that sounds too good to be true..." category?
        Do all of the member companies get access to all of your tracking
        data?
        \_ currently, manufacturers don't always know the end-user of their
           product.  They do market studies and coupons and such to try
           and find such information.  This looks like a way to share end
           user information with the manufacturers.  Thus the manufacturers
           pay a small fee: 2% MSRP in order to find out more end user
           demographic info.  Who knows what other info they mine?  They may
           also track and look for market demographic clustering, etc.  Who
           knows? They may also get the guvmint to kick in some %-age of the
           "college savings." -nivra

        \_ It doesn't matter if he has a real CS degree or not. The fact
           of the matter is, he didn't go a real college.       -berkeleyan

12/4    "Some Asians' college strategy: Don't check 'Asian'"
        http://www.csua.org/u/uvz (news.yahoo.com)
        "(Princeton sociologist) Espenshade found that Asian-Americans needed
        a 1550 SAT to have an equal chance of getting into an elite college as
        white students with a 1410 or black students with an 1100."
