American Vs Brazilian farmers?

Am i wrong in thinking that the USA will always have a cost advantage over Brazil?

 Not in labor costs obviously but in technological capabilities? eg. the tech in those john deere tractors mean that USA farmers will always be more productive?

Skype DOA

Wow at how much of a ghost town Skype is for p2p calls. Not a single contact active anymore.

Microsoft paid $8.5B in 2011.....DOA these days.

MadameX at BAM

Just got home from the Madonna MadameX concert at BAM with Jodie.

Started late, but was an awesome concert, really liked the venue and she's right.....venues made for sports teams suck for music.

 I have no idea how she is making money on a 2,000 seat venue with the number of dancers, singers, musicians etc let alone pay for the awesome sets, lights, design - but lets face it this "bus tour" concert was never about money and about being able to perform in an intimate face to face way.

 No photos unfortunately as they did the "phone lockup thing" which was ok......until you realise you are sitting there for over 1.5 hours at the start waiting for the show to start..... (some photos here - https://www.nme.com/reviews/live/madonna-madame-x-residency-review-new-york )

This said considering she went from 11 to 1.15am she's totally forgiven. Especially as it was super high energy night (with a few catch her breath breaks) and a great example of what a super fit 61 year old can do to this 50 year old.

 And thats the end of #TheWeekOfDean
