Imagine: 2 good-news stories about Sch’dy in a single day! I can’t remember the last time I felt so encouraged to be a homeowner in Schenectady! Two stories in the Oct. 25 paper that may actually benefit Schenectady homeowners (“Decision means city can fire cops” and “City may repair broken laterals”). One to encourage our trust and the other, our pocketbooks. Hope they don’t get crushed in committee. Lisa McHeard Schenectady Supervisor later changed tune ...

Lisa McHeard-Stop being so easily impressed. County Democrats are raising taxes Countywide 6% before the new County Home goes on budget. City Democrats are raising every tax/fee while refusing to pay our schools and County tax bill. Tomorrow we have a chance to help Independent Vince Riggi by electing Rich Patierne to City Council. Let's do the right thing to save the City taxpayers from these insane borrowers and spenders.

John Harrity - I too have noticed that Apple gets an unproportional amount of media coverage for almost everything it does. Though it's not all free advertising, it's definitely a double-edged sword. I remember when Apple was having issues with their iOS 6 Maps application, that made the front page of the Gazette. Could you imagine any other company's minor misfortune being so well-publicized? And when the iPhone 5 came out, I saw NBC News cover it, but most of their coverage was about the fact it has a new connector so previous iPhone users would have to buy an adapter to get their old accessories to work. Or when there are issues with the Chinese company FoxConn that assembles computers and devices for most tech companies (including Apple), the media almost always refers to the company as "Apple's" and tries to solely blame Apple for the conditions there. So while I agree Apple does get a lot more attention than any other tech company out there... it's not all good "free advertising".
