IBM hits back against over-timers with pay cut

Respone to Bill Fresher

I didn't see any mention that there was greater pay for OT, but 5 to 6 hours does make more sense if it's 1/4 or 1/3 extra.

Until recently, my OT was at standard rate, including weekends! Now I don't get paid for OT at all......

Maths!

Just a note that if the reduction in pay is 15% and the normal working hours is 40, the number of hours required to make up the difference is actually 7 ( 40 / 0.85 - 40 )

Test your liver... with your phone

What's the point?

Why bother sending the results to a doctor, just use the processing capability of the phone to work out the result and display a message to stop drinking. (or to give the liver more punishment?)

The idea of using a nice free tool to check if my password is buggered seems a bit mental.

Oh look, my password is fine, nice website only has my password and my IP address. quick google later......

Marketing BS

As usual, utter crap audio power quoted. Power consumption is only 110W, easily 10W will be control circuitry, so the quoted power is 10X actual at least!
