Is Financial services IT in a mess?

IT Angle

Under pressure... dum dum da .. da da dum dum (Queen)

Work in financial sector IT..

Businesses are more likely these days to lean on their IT to reduce costs to ensure that their fat cats can continue their 'cost of sale' spending to bring in the money. From a business point of view this does bring in the moolar.. you can't blame IT when they are under resourced and under pressure to deliver no matter what.

Mexican drug runners torture and decapitate blogger

Poneros
FAIL

Err America has spent $Billions trying to combat drug trafficking into the country. There is only so much money available to fight this enormous problem.

The cartels get there money from America, but last time I looked, the issue is only their problem once the runner crosses the border. The Mexican drug cartels are under Mexican jurisdiction. America has no powers their.

Your statement is a little unfounded.

Groupon will replace 1 in 10 sales staff to ensure growth

Facepalm

My only problem with groupon is receiving so much crap in my inbox for 'deals' that don't really seem much of a good deal.

Like most mail, if you receive too much that you don't want, you tend not to read any of it.

People just not that into Blu-ray

Blu-Pay

I think there would be a higher margin of sucess if it wasn't for the recession, consumers are keeping there wallets closed because they believe the media who have told people 'money is scarce' and 'wait it will get cheaper'. If the media had told people to 'spend spend spend while it's cheap' then we may have moved a lot further on than we have done.

Ideally Blu-Ray needs to drop in price to DVD costs and DVD's need to drop in price to bargain bin prices. This might encourage people to take the plunge and buy a blu-ray player. This is unlikely to happen as DVD and Blu-Ray are still competing markets, DVD prices will continue to tail Blu-Ray prices while greed still drives their premium cost. Now, is this because the HD battle has been won and our corporate owners think we need to now pay for our support, or is it simply just driven by greed so that they can get whatever they can?

Oh well, I'm sure this could get talked about all day.
