Rubba dubba Rambus!
The lack of integrity in the voting syustem that allows multiple voting and voting by non-citizens is a far larger issue.
A repeatedly proven urban myth where the incidents that did happen were statistically unimportant and mostly committed by GOP supporters.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: the powers that be really have no clue how the Internet works.
Unity is what turned me off Ubuntu.
That said, what compelling reason do people have to go buy new PCs?
None that I can think of. A quad core with a decent vid, NIC, HDD and RAM is about all anyone needs these days.
That's every computer made in the last 4 years.
It's good to save money in business, but you can save yourself right out of business.
Stop treating IT like janitors.
It's a glorified IM limited to short text messages and small photos. (and videos now?)
What exactly is there to develop?
Prices up, service down.
This is yet another clear violation of contractor labor laws as well.
The law clearly states that a contractor must be able to determine how best to fulfill the work required and if the client, in this case, Uber, micro manages the actual work, they are in effect, now employers.
The law clearly states you can't have it both ways and was created to prevent just this scenario.
And THAT is really saying something.
Most graffiti was 3rd rate at best.
Just like most pop art.
I DO NOT miss Token Ring.
Must be nice to know the right people to deliver nothing for millions of pounds.
The same people who tell the rest of us to buck up and bootstrap and re-educate ourselves or we are just lazy.
Designers, yes. Managers, not so much.
Yes, it's a problem in every industry these days.
I haven't had a Pimms Cup in ages.
The German WWII over engineered war machine lesson.
The U.S. has forgotten it. It will pay dearly for it one day. I wish it didn't, but history shows that stupid is never tolerated for long.
"Pork" has a way of getting fatter, not faster or more nimble.
They call them pork projects for a reason.
That buys a lot of bridges, but in the U.S. anything that benefits the average person is just crazy commie talk.
But let's cut feeding the elderly (meals on wheels) and health care for children and prenatal care because, you know, FREEDOM!
When I worked for IBM almost 7 years ago, we had once a week morning briefings with an agent in India who had a very thick accent, lots of background noise and a very bad phone line. You can imagine the fun that was.
I never could figure out why as we also had agents in the same city who handled the client account.
This was the same on 2 other IBM client accounts I worked at.
IBM service is about building a Kafka level of bureaucracy, where the lowest paid grunts do the real work, are often contractors, answer to multiple bosses and are never promoted while the "managers" play email round robin and change the SLA policies almost daily. What was right today is wrong tomorrow, so you are forever doing something wrong.
You are set up for failure from "go". Fuck IBM. Hard.
BA DUMP BA!
Have an upvote.
Naw, I've seen plenty of people act very dangerous when being fired.
I've met a lot of angry people who make life miserable for those around them at work.
Most small businesses I've seen do not really have an IT department. As the other poster just said, it's usually on or two people or someone on-call at most and they are woefully underpaid and inexperienced.
So they get what they pay for.
Same for their actual systems. Obsolete and put together by some hack that would literally take weeks for an outside person to do discovery and mapping before even attempting to repair and optimize, which of course, they don't have the budget and time for.
Theoretically, small businesses are an untapped goldmine for on-call and consultant IT, but in reality, it's a low budget nightmare.
Embrace, extend, extinguish.
They'd have to think about whole new ways to make things complex.
Nailed it. The whole point of the early days of the Internet was that almost anyone could learn how to build a website.
Hell, anyone remember Netscape Composer? I built my first websites with that.
Now? Do we really need literally dozens of scripts and languages to create a damn website? No. It's just nerd boi circle jerking at the gates of the priesthood of the temple of corporate mammon to REALLY bad pron, at this point.
Dial it back from 11. It's my bandwidth, not yours.
Well what a surprise there seem to be no comments from H-1B supporters. /s
Anyone else surprised as well?
And these will be the VERY same people that tell everyone they need to work harder and can't give you a raise this year because of some trivial infraction of your daily duties.
Funny how the 21st century looks a lot like the 19th century.
You'd almost think they'd never heard of Marie Antoinette.
Standard U.S. whistle blower treatment.
Oregon just paid for this guy's retirement.
This doesn't look good for either side.
Because Uber hasn't been on record as being very very stupid?
Do you keep up with the news?
It went right over your head, didn't it?
Why didn't they send a mixed group?
And yes, if they had sent a group of five of any one race and gender, it would still have been laughable.
I wonder if they are inferring secondary displacement. (the workers who provide services outside of the factory with the robots)
Will that be like the paperless office then?
How'd that work out?
The industrial revolution resulted in very violent upheaval well into the 20th century.
Millions prospered, but millions died. And millions are still living in poverty even in the U.S.
Not a pretty model.
...and keep getting...
BAH. Damn phone.
Exactly. I've been saying this for years keep getting told I'm wrong.
Exactly. Go across state lines and buy your gear there.
End of tax revenue.
I wish I had that kind of money to pretend to make something. I could actually... make something.
But then, I don't know the right people, do I?
"the industrial revolution gave us the weekend"
Except that is didn't. It was the unions who had to fight hard and bloody to get it.
I stopped giving him any credit right at that sentence.
If you have not read this book, I highly recommend it.
I can already see the future headlines and it's not god.
A little self important there, is he?
Don't go public with your invention or idea until AFTER you leave the company and never say you thought of it while at the company.
See title. The 5th Amendment makes no exceptions.
Corporate America is all the same: Shameless crack whores who will stab you in the back for money.
A lot of coders think they can design websites and other user interface controls as well.
It's even worse when the marketing department thinks it can instead.
You aren't even joking Kevin.
When we your corporate overlords say it isn't, peasant!
