Another joke of a story--no Coca-Cola, no Big Macs, no Bic pens, no razors, no Budweiser, no lotto tickets, no sporting event tickets, etc.

No kidding...what a joke!!!  Wasn't this list supposed to be the "
10 best-selling products ever."

They left out "Hope and Change" sold by Obama, it was bought by millions of Americans and many more millions throughout the world.  This defective product is being recalled as we speak, but the losses are in the trillions of dollars and can not be refunded to the taxpayers of America.

Give this a thumbs-up if you've never owned a single one of these products either.

Bible, Koran, pencils, toilet paper, MS WIndows, paper, steel and other commodities. This list is seriously just garbage. It's hilarious how I knew the iPhone would be on the list before I even read it. Such lies and manipulation.

Windows? Bic pens? Microsoft Office? Tide? Coca-Cola? Et al . . ..

 

The list goes on, of numerical and dollar counts that I'd wager meet the judge's criteria and exceed much of this list.

 

The list reminds me of those articles that suggest the authors have - surprise! - something to sell.

More appropriately title might me to 10 big selling items.    What about the VW Bug, they were made  and sold from the 1940's up to the 1980;s in most of the world?   What about Converse sneakers, Yo yo's or slinky toys?

Interesting that most are electronics devices. During the 40's - 50's - and 60's the best selling products recognized around the world were Coca Cola snd Singer sewing machines...Times change!

Some of these are bonafide, others are definitely NOT, making this article flakey! The Star Wars movie series was not a "product". And Lipitor? Really?? Big Pharma and their stockholders cash in on price gouging "products" that are REQUIRED to combat disease and health problems. How wonderful it would be if diabetics had the same freedom of choice to purchase insulin like a Rubik's Cube! Pharma has the U.S. by the short ones.

I'm so suprised that toilet paper never seems to ever make any of these lists. I would like to think that more people have bought toilet paper and use it before using gettin an Ipad or Michael Jackson album

Want to know how to get to the bottom of an MSN article if your scroll ball is broken?

Just click SPAM on all the junk posts and before you know it you're at the bottom.

Try it - it REALLY works!

This list must have been put together by an 18 year old.  What about Kool-aid, Coca-cola, hula hoops, VW bugs, princess phones, transitor radios, TV's for God's sake,  Do any writers on MSN have a sense of history?  There are a few of us out there who are over 25!

The iPhone?  Mine was a great item, but both ATT and Apple refused to service or upgrade the item in an attempt to sell me a new phone.  They said they couldn't make it work, but the problem was the REFUSAL of staff at both ATT and Apple to simply upgrade the software from 3.0 to 5.4.  If they had valued me as a customer, I would not be using a Verizon Droid, now.

Market index data delayed by 15 minutes

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market punctuated July with a broad-based retreat that sent the S&P 500 lower by 2.0% with all ten sectors ending in the red. The benchmark index posted a monthly decline of 1.5%, while the Russell 2000 (-2.3%) underperformed to end the month lower by 6.1%.

To get a better feel for what led to today's retreat, we'd like to look back to Wednesday, when the market had ample reason to rally, but did not. Instead, it ended basically flat after a sloppy day of ... More
