Don't know they're bourne
"bourne by the American taxpayer"
If the ' leader of the free world' can't be arsed to spell correctly, what else can't he be arsed to do?
Oracle’s co-CEO Safra Catz was reportedly set to enjoy a slap-up meal with US president mop-haired windbag Donald Trump last night, giving the pair a chance to compare Amazon-bashing notes. The evening was, according to Bloomberg, also going to involve Peter Thiel, founder of CIA-backed data analytics biz Palantir, making it …
Trump does make me chuckle with his stupid rants that have absolutely no substance then I remember our government and potential government in waiting and sob uncontrollably like someone just stole my old bmx bike. That bike had mag wheels, stunt nuts and mushroom grips I'll have you know.
stunt nuts and mushroom grips
Sounds a lot like my penis.
On-topic, I've no idea why he thinks a postal service being used to deliver posted items is so terrible, unless the service is running at a loss, in which case that wouldn't be Amazon's fault but whoever sets the prices.
Then again, suggesting Trump "thinks" about anything rather than just running verbal diarrhea based on whatever whatever he was last told by one of his carers is a bit of a stretch.
when the state of California pretty much mandated Oracle systems for all state services, and Oracle's leadership and "definitely not conservative nor GOP" governor Davis was all about praising their leadership and technical abilities? remember all the vitriol and complaints about cronyism and "follow the campaign donations" there were?
Oh yeah, me too. Almost none at all.
But replace the D with an R, nothing else changing, and suddenly it's the Crony Apocalypse.
The Reg needs less "Bay Area Bubble" ideological cheerleader writers. We read British sites because we're trying to avoid the "our team is perfect and yours is satan" crap American media spews.
take an example from the BOFH, who, like cattle prods and lorries with carpet rolls, cares nothing about your politics.
Nope, I don't remember, since I'm not a resident of California. This comment is mistaken on two counts.
First, comparing the response of state residents to a statewide issue to the response of the citizens of a nation to a national issue is invalid.
Second, assuming that the attitude toward Oracle has anything to do with party affiliation or politics at all is invalid. Oracle has been widely disliked for a long, long time due to their business practices. Nothing has changed.
Regardless of which cloud gets selected in this government bid, I don’t understand why Uncle Sam would go with only a single vendor. Is it really so tough to build a redundant cloud architecture? Even if it is difficult, why not make that part of the deal, by requiring that the two vendors selected work together to create an integrated solution? Furthermore, you could have a 3rd vendor in “backup mode” if either of the two selected fail to meet their obligations. There are numerous variations on this theme, including hiring a 3rd party (like a GSI) to do the cross-cloud integration. Single source is a bad idea financially and also from a military perspective.
There are some dark horses out there, who don't like being in the limelight but are quite competent. Like Equinix. I only know about because a relative of mine works there. It looks like a contender, and has the added pluses of low profile, good solid tech, and its own private cables.
The psychology of the school yard bully. Identify two powerful rivals and cosy up to the stronger one while trashing the other, in actuality demonstrating a fundamentally weak and vacillating personality.
His business strategy seems to consist of playing favorites, in the hope of getting a better offer from the other party and then concessions (donations) from the first party and vice-versa. Witness his games with Chris Christy and Mitt Romney for the position of Vice-President.

You gonna be downvoted to oblivion once all those Brit bots return to work tomorrow. Nah, they'll be off chasing the next anti-Trumpian shiny whatever.
And I love the Scott Adams reference. Somebody has done his/her research, but prolly not from outside of the involved country. Spectator sportage ran amuck.
