Re: Might work...
Warning! That triangle has rounded corners.
But is that patent on rounded corners only valid on right-angled rounded corners?
This could have severe implications to the Vienna Convention 1968.

By "stomp on them", are you referring to the devices or the wearers?

Re: Coming soon
That's not plausible:
(1) it's spelled correctly, and
(2) it should be $1,000,000 (ONE MILLION US DOLLARS) - note the ALL CAPS for the dollar amount.

Re: not entirely fair
It's not meant to be entirely fair, in fact it's not meant to be fair at all. The proportion of executives surfing porn from their work computers is necessarily higher than that of non-executives, non-executives who probably believe that some IT bod is monitoring all internet activity all the time, and is just waiting to pounce on someone who is caught out. Conversely, the caught executive is expecting their rank to trump the BOFH, and keep their "infraction" on the quiet.
The main question, however, is whether being a complete berk is merely necessary, or both necessary and sufficient, to be an executive, porn-surfing or otherwise.
I certainly don't want to know the aposteriori distribution of those executives. Probably quite large, I'd imagine.
executives were still happy to behave like complete berks
Because they are complete berks.

You mean "cow-orkers". And we're all the cows that are getting orked pretty hard.

Once in, though, you can't get rid of them. If e-petitions have any merit, here's one to look at:
Of course, the chances that anything worthwhile will happen are pretty much nil, as it means getting the turkeys to vote for Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter.

Lasers are just as disposable.
Lexmark CS310N colour laser printer... C$170. Built-in cartridges get about 750 pages.
Lexmark 700H1 black cartridge... C$157
Lexmark 700 H2 Cyan/H3 Magenta/H4 Yellow cartridge... C$189 each.
Cartridges are 3000 pages each.
The cost of replacing the cartridges ($724) is greater than buying 4 printers ($680)

If this were to happen, the entire tracking industry might as well shrivel up and die (like Monsanto in Europe). and zero fucks (from me anyway) will be given.

Lies, damn lies,
Surely looking at that graph, everyone in the world should have received 3 iPads last Christmas! 24,000 million (24 BEEELLION) iPads shipped in Q4-12?
I gave away my P800, P900, and P910, with that strange keyboard on the inside of the flap. The P990, though, is still a solid backup phone. Not sure of the fates of the other two, but the P900 was replaced by a Blackberry Z10*.
