I've heard the same thing with Application Development.

that the most interesting admission in the article was :
"According to Liang's admissions, when he and his co-conspirators realized that they could not design a diesel engine that would meet the stricter US emissions standards,"
This tells me the folks setting the standard have no clue about how the standards they set and how they impact the engine design process.
I sat down in a movie theater once and before the previews even started a BSOD of popped up.... Without missing a beat a guy on the other side hollered out:
"Did you turn it off and on again?"
I've said for years now....
Stop telling kids "you might get pregnant"
Start telling kids "you might have a baby"
I don't think they got the reference....
sorry, but you are wrong...
He should be obligated to provide a round for everyone else....
Tech1: hey Tech2... I got another "this might be spam email" from a user again.
Tech2: How many times have we told those #$%^&$ in Marketing not to do that.
Tech1: I don't know... I'm getting tired of this crap... they never listen us......
Tech2: To @#$%$^ with Marketing... tell the user it really is spam and to delete it... that might drive the point home....
Tech1: good idea....
Microsoft, along with all of the other big software companies, figured out that they can make more money selling your personal data to advertisers than they can selling you a product.
It's an dangerous road to head down...
"The judge also slaps the DEA for simple laziness: previous requests for warrants for cell phone data (such as carrier data about calls made and tower locations) in the case had been granted by magistrates, which “suggests strongly that the Government could have obtained a warrant to use a cell-site simulator, if it had wished to do so”
It's not about laziness..... it's about changing norm. if you can get just one case like this passed the right Judges then it forever changes the system.
"that an island will flip over if everyone stands on one side".
That's was some funny stuff right there.... I remember when Hank Johnson said that.... I saw the video, he was dead serious.
How this dude gets re-elected every year is beyond me... the icon is for mocking ol' Hank.....
Any food or drink with any Aspartame at all gives my wife severe migraines. It's always made me wonder what other side effects it causes that people aren't even aware of.
What do you mean "What's the IT angle?".....
Didn't you know most Developers live solely on caffeine.
I see Larry down-voted you.
I can understand that... I worked for an automotive manufacturer at the time.... they never spent squat on IT. We were the red-headed step child shoved under the HR Department.
How about this.... I don't freaking want it.....
STOP TRYING TO SHOVE IT DOWN MY THROAT!!!!!!!!!!
is that plain enough for you to understand.
What was being said in private behind closed doors?
according to google a Hectare is 107,639 square feet. That would be 10.7639 Square Feet per bird ( about a square meter....not the size of an A4 Sheet of paper.
Next time you need to purchase an Atlantis Computing product, just take your 3 year old kid with you to the store. Hand them the money and let them pay for it (video document this of course). then when you get to the EULA, have them click Accept button (again video document this).
Next review their product to your hearts content, if they attempt to sue you, just send them the videos. You're not the one who purchased it or did you accept the EULA.
Couldn't agree with you more. The first 13 to 18 years or so of education is just the starting point, you have to know (or retain) the basics otherwise you don't know enough to even ask the right questions.
You've got to know what you don't know, actually Clint Eastwood said it better - "A man's got to know his limitations"

There is another one coming that will pop eventually, the Advertising Bubble....
People are getting sick of this type of shit.
p.s. Personally, I've never heard of half of these bubbles, and the list did come from Wikipedia, so you can take the list with a grain of salt.
REALLY..... one of the main things I've heard during the last week and a half is:
"It wouldn't be the first time Apple has unlocked one of its devices in response to a government request"
so take a wild guess what would happen next..
Bill can take his "Wouldn't set a precedent" and shove it up his arse.....
how in the world anyone can know if the seller is male or female based on the crazy user names I've seen?
I call bullshit on this study.....
I have another idea, how bout men are more competitive and have higher exceptions as to what they can sell their crap for....
yea... I see that now that it's too late to update.....
I must have been busy reviewing my code......
I work with one of these geniuses..... He's a very knowledgeable developer, but he never tests anything and is often surprised when a bug occurs in his code. He lives and dies by the motto, how fast can I have this done. His code is usually overly complicated, cause it's a micro second faster to do it this way, but you waste hours trying to figure out what he wanted to accomplish.
I use him as an information source and a sounding board only. I NEVER follow his advice on how to implement any code routine.
A few years ago at Christmas, I almost bought him a t-shirt from thinkgeek:
"I don't often test my code, but when I do, I do it in Production."
anonymous..... cause he might be reading this.
and I'll say it again....
Back the 80's and 90's and continuing to this day, retail companies realized they could make more money putting you into debt than they could selling you their product. They no longer care about the products they sell, only the amount of debt you rack up on their charge cards.
Today software companies (Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook... have I forgotten anyone) have realized they can make more money selling your online habits to the advertisers than they can selling software.
MS can suck it along with all the rest of them.
Reads like an XKCD cartoon... have an upvote...
Turning Windows update OFF on every single Windows 7 PC I own......
"Amazon reportedly wants “deeper integration” with Android to persuade more phone makers to promote Amazon services."
What a complete load of Crap. Starting in the 80's and 90's and continuing to this day, retail companies realized they could make more money putting you into debt than they could selling you their product. They no longer care about the products they sell, only the amount of debt you rack up on their charge cards.
Today software companies (Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon... have I forgotten anyone) have realized they can make more money selling your online habits to the advertisers than they can selling software.
I stopped using amazon's app store right after they came out with "amazon underground".... let me own everything you do on your phone and you can use these apps free.. F off..... amazon
F off microsoft
F off apple
F off google
Start selling your product and not ME and my online habits.
The FCC doesn't really have to make the scumbag corporation do anything.... They, the FCC, just need to end the geographical monopolies that are currently allowed.
The main reason, IMHO, you have this disconnect with speed and availability is one company can not come in offer service on another company's turf.
this is because the cable companies lobbied congress and congress allows this bullshit to take place......END THE MONOPOLIES and let the real competition begin.
This confirms what I've said in the past.... The comcast executives sit around in the board room and figure out way to gouge their customers for more money. They are greedy pieces of human flesh.
I think I was 12 or 13 when I first solved the rubiks cube. My fastest time was only 5 or 6 minutes, but I basically used the tool you described. I figured out how to move a single corner piece from point A to point B without impacting any other piece.
"Obviously, careful oversight and monitoring would be required, but being innocent of that of which you are suspected and having your data searched is not radically different from being innocent and having your home searched."
the main problem here is at some point in the future some government agency will circumvent the "careful oversight". and they will have a really good reason for doing so.
"we will manage your data in accordance with the law of the land"
Translation: "we will sell your data to whoever pays us the most!"
Anytime people of privilege, wealth and power negotiate anything in secret it is never about anything but more privilege, more wealth, more power and control over others.
They could have left it unlimited, but simply limited the amount you could upload per day.
Would have saved them a lot of ticked off customers......
FUCK YOU .
YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF GREEDY PIECES OF SHIT.

Sirsasana is actually the name of the that yoga pose.
Calm your mind with Lenovo's latest device Sirsasana.
One high-level publishing executive disputed that the Amazon pacts are behind the e-book sales decline. “This is a title-driven business,” he said. “If you have a good book, price isn’t an issue.”
This just goes to show you how out of touch with reality these idiots are.
Sounds like what I've been told for years, there are three sides to any project.....
Time, Money and Quality.
Pick any two....
yes.... the crazies are already doing just that...
xkcd has the answer.
Sometimes I would visit Yahoo for answers to questions I was searching for....never again. Just added Yahoo to my blocked site list.... just in case I forget.
I think the people that run comcast sit around thinking of ways to gouge money out of anybody and everybody they do business with. Take their precious "on demand" service. Great service till you realize it's something that your're paying for and yet you have to watch more commercials using "on demand" than you do with live TV.
What does this mean..... it means they are double dipping. Customer's are paying for the service (no it's not itemized on the bill, but they won't let you drop it either) and they are getting paid by the advertisers.
Run by nothing but greedy pieces of human garbage.
That's if you can find one. They shut the one in my town down. Nearest one is almost 20 miles away.
Thank you very much, I was not aware of that tidbit.
either do one of two things.... stop posting articles with multiple pages or bring back the print button.
kindly explain to me how to print a 5 page article without clicking and printing each page one at a time.
Got a call from a Quality Engineer concerning returned emails when replying to all. I arrive at her desk and she proceeds to show me how she uses "Reply All" on an email sent to a group of engineers. Several of the emails would be returned with the standard undeliverable message.
She then proceeds to tell me she's positive someone with that email address exists "cause when I copy and paste their email address in MS Word, it turns blue.... See". She proceeds to demonstrate.
I had to politely explain to her that it was just formatting and that Word wasn't dynamically searching the entire internet for valid email addresses.
