Comment: Re:Just pay the tax (Score 2, Interesting) 866

by Barsema (#33649638) Attached to: Ballmer, Bezos Fund Effort To Undermine Bill Gates

While CEO of Microsoft in 2009, Ballmer earned a total compensation of $1,276,627

so that would be 5% of 300.000 = 15000 dollar + 9% of 776627 = 69896 making a total of 76779 in taxes, so he would more than recoup his 100.000 in less than 2 years....

and of course in relation to his fortune of roughly 14.5 billion the 100.000 is peanuts but so is the tax....

David Crafti writes "Pirate Party Australia has made the move to host the recently leaked ACTA document in order to highlight the lack of government transparency in the negotiation process. We believe that the document is not under copyright, and we are not party to any NDAs, so there should be no restriction on us posting it. We would like to see what the government (any government) tries to do about it. If it turns out that there is some reason that we have to take it down, then we will, but if this happens, it will only validate the document's authenticity."

+ - Intel Core 2 refreshed - QX6850 and E6750->

An anonymous reader writes "As AMD's Barcelona approaches, the price war between AMD and Intel continues. To spice things up a bit this week, Intel is throwing into the ring a number of new processors, refreshing the Core2 line-up. HEXUS reviews the high-end QX6850 and mid-range E6750: 'Now is a golden time for anyone looking to buy a new CPU, whether Intel or AMD. The latest round of price cuts means you can now get an incredible level of processing performance for little more than £100. But if your need to buy is not urgent, remember that Intel and its big rival are each promising new processors before the end of the year — AMD with K10 quad-core and Intel with 45nm Penryn-derived CPUs.'"
