If you never use any computer you're even safer. I suggest you throw out the one you typed this on.
I've written apps for them. It plays Snake? What do you think Snake is written in?
Actually, all those phones have J2ME embedded and do allow downloading of apps. Its probably more exploitable due to age and lack of updates than a secured modern smartphone. There's just not enough of you in rich enough countries to bother.
Simple way to fix it- require that any H1B hired must be paid twice the highest paid domestic worker. That means they'll only be paid if they really are necessary. Any company that's found breaking this rule is not allowed to hire an H1B again- ever. And they're fined 20 times what the salary(s) were supposed to be.
We can't throw companies in jail, so breaking the law should be fucking punishing.
The reason IT jobs are down is a combination of things:
1)Too many people went into it, because it was seen as hot yet didn't require a degree, just certs (or nothing).
2)Improved knowledge of computers by the general public, and improved software for them to use (its not like the 90s when you had to really know Windows to set up a network). Not many people need to call helpdesk to plug in a mouse anymore.
3)Automation and improved infrastructure. It takes fewer people to manage a fleet of machines because the software is better.
4)We don't fix hardware anymore. We replace it. This is a lot lower effort. Also a lot of the hardware is more reliable.
IT jobs went away because demand decreased while supply increased. There's still a fuckton of jobs writing software, but we don't need as many people to take care of the hardware and administrate the systems. Those jobs aren't going completely away, but they'll never spike again.
There are republicans with other principles. Unfortunately they take them from the parts of the bible with lots of thou shalt nots and mentions of stoning and punishment. They make the rest look good.
Its called Libertardia, land of the Libertarians. In their mind its all rainbows and unicorns. The reality is much closer to Somalia.
Free interns aren't allowed to displace paid workers. That means they cannot do anything material for the company. An intern at a software company cannot write software, unless he's a paid intern.
Of course that's why unpaid internships are pretty much non-existent these days.
If they're free. Most of them are paid, then they can do work. Pay for an engineering intern is actually pretty good- the firms want to recruit the better ones.
You're low, on any scale. If you're way the fuck out in the boonies you should be making a good chunk more than that. If you live in an actual city, double that. And that's just salary, not equity.
No engineering intern makes 0. The law is that an intern can only be unpaid if they do no work relating to the company. For example, an unpaid intern at an advertising company can sit in on meetings and bring coffee, but they can't draw an ad or write copy. If they do, they have to be paid. An unpaid intern at a software company wouldn't be able to write source code. SO basically worthless. So engineering interns get paid, just a lot less. Generally a good chunk more than minimum wage though, as there is competition for interns.
Huh? If you don't trust the OS provider, Apple is the worst choice- you can't put on a custom ROM, you can't use non Apple stores, you can't use non Apple approved software, you can't use non Apple approved browser. If you don't trust the OS provider a custom ROM of Android is the only option.
Also Android tracks usage by app, and has forever. My biggest user is Maps, then facebook, then messenger. It even lists out things like Google Play Services.
What are you talking about? TMobile is the best at it- I get free unlimited data in Europe for fucks sake. Unlimited roaming data in over 120 countries. ANd I've used it in Spain and South Korea. Only place I wasn't given free data was Gibraltar.
70k was my salary 14 years ago fresh out of school, with no internships. Although I did have a good GPA (3.3ish I think) from a top 10 school (UIUC). And it was San Diego, which is lower than NYC/SF, but higher than a lot of other cities. But your scale is totally off, 100K in the valley sounds about right. Maybe even low.
In 2001 I got my undergrad CS degree. I started at 70K in San Diego. It wasn't uncommon to make mid 60s 14 years ago. That its over 100K now in the Valley is absolutely no surprise. Even in rural areas under 60K for a CS degree out of college is insultingly low.
