I guess the rest of the people acting like bullying behavior is acceptable were bullies from the start then. I'm not sure which is worse.

Well adjusted people find bullying behavior unacceptable regardless of their social graces now or in the past. Many of us grew past it or rejected it at an early age but there are some for whom it is a lifestyle. Empowered by the protection of the keyboard (greater internet fuckwad theory). It is a behavior we as a society will have to deal with eventually. Maybe the kids who grew up online will do better but sadly I doubt it.

That's what the lovely built in computer that porche provides is for. The dashboard can show you many of these things. Porche will provide more info than almost any of its customers would care for. The rest will prefer using their custom tools to read more detailed raw data. Android is there to do gps and handle in car entertainment and communication. Nothing else

And somehow it's always the other guys fault?

Look torvolds is a smart guy. He accomplished something impressive. That's great. It does not mean he is a good person or a good leader. He can be a total asshole. That doesn't make him a bad developer but it sure as hell would make him someone that most sane people would choose not to work with.

What rights exactly. At least in a "right to work" state you don't have a lot of recourse unless you are being discriminated against. If an entire department is being laid off it would be hard to show that you were laid off for anything but legitimate reasons. Under what circumstances is a worker really going to end up better off turning down the money (plus the ability to collect unemployment right away, at least here in Mass).

I coukd see delaying signing to consult a lawyer maybe but I suspect in most cases they will tell you to take the money and run. its better than nothing.

Yeah what would we do without the Google+ app.

Google makes a ton of money on the data they acquire from those apps. iOS users represent heavy consumers. Google needs access to those users and their data more than apple needs Google. That's why Google pays Apple to make sure Google remains the default search option in iOS.
