Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Want to boycott horrific working conditions? Stop buying everything. Even Made in America products have parts or raw materials from overseas sweatshops. Electricity in the United States is typically powered by coal, which routinely ignores safety regulations.
The problem isn't Apple. The problem is lax governmental regulation that allows this to happen. Want to stop Apple from using sweatshops? Want to stop Google and Facebook from tracking your every move? Make it illegal, and enforce the damned law.
Did you have a full-time 40hr/wk job totally outside of CS/IT during the same period that left you with only enough time outside of class to sleep?
Yeah, some of us did. I worked up to 60 hours a week while in school. College is expensive, even with financial aid.
'Why would anyone ever want to view his or her pictures on a TV?'
And yet they still tried selling those stupid PhotoCD players to people.
Microsoft, why don't you just write some QUALITY software for the iPad instead of trying to go head on in competition? That way, the more iPads Apple sells, the more software you sell. It's win-win.
I wonder about this sometimes. I think Microsoft needs to remember it's a software company, not a hardware company. Sell Office, sell Windows, create application software for all platforms. Otherwise you have Zune.
The firm's conclusion was that non-iPad owners THINK iPad owners tend to be wealthy, sophisticated, highly educated and disproportionately interested in business and finance, while they scored terribly in the areas of altruism and kindness.
Fixed. What a stupid study. How about you actually see what iPad owners are like, rather than ask people what their opinions of iPad owners are?
Disclaimer: I do not own an iPad
Pike detailed the shortcomings of such languages as a way of describing the goals that he and other Google engineers have for a new programming language they developed, called Go.
Oh, so he's pushing a competing product and denigrating his competition? Nothing to see here, I think.
'We don't have sufficiently bright people moving into this field to support those national security objectives as we move forward in time,'
All we have are a bunch of morons here.
If Microsoft did this people would be all over their asses..
People on Slashdot say that a lot - but the truth is, Amazon already does this, and nobody really noticed.
Assume $100 motherboard is marked up 70%
4.49% increase in costs
What would the world be like if instead of 70% markup, we increased wages for everyone, keeping a more reasonable profit margin?
Hopefully, this results in a rise in living conditions for everyone - My personal pessimism has doubts.
