  Pluss, they won't even make JAWS free for office like Window-eyes did. This
  office deal was a chance for everybody to brake away from JAWS

  They gonna kill off magic. Trust me. Fs always knew magic was trash. As soon
  as the shark and zt get reworked to work well together. Magic will be put to
  it's deserved death, zt fusion and we will be killed  and i'll have to cough
  up stupid amount of money to upgrade the shark i had in middle school. Which
  will still cost me arm and leg even with vfo's "generous"
  upgrade pricing. Oh, yeah, kiss ai2's actually helpful tech support goodbye
  too, y'all.
