Or you could be running a DR dos product or an Amiga without hidden loops slowing it down to match a PC crap speed for 4 years before being found by a PHD hobbiest. BTW MS was paid to write amiga dos.
Please don't pine away for the good times that never existed except in the paid for articles to promote MS and its planned marketing process.
Nor blame hobbiests for using software that they then took to work to solve real problems that made him the richest man on earth. They could have taken other software that exists if it wasn't broken intentionally.
Please go back and reread those 208 monopoly findings.

Most companies I know that have done this, do not understand they are taking a 5 year road trip to mediocrity and fail. It takes about 5 years of breaking the cycle to fully understand what they just did to themselves. I'm sure some "MBA know it all", just got a huge bonus check and doesn't care because he is either retiring or moving on. Or possibly he is retiring and moving on in 5 years and just doesn't know it yet. Most companies bring in a consulting firm to help explain how best to accomplish this who also make a huge amount of money.

Look up "how aspartame became legal" and Rumsfeld, perhaps find the time line also.
The original studies were not cited and all the FDA doctors were going to ban it again before being replaced by Reagan on request from Rumsfeld.
A president with failing mental capacity and memory. All types of crazy shit happened under him. Wait till we normalize relations with Iran and the West finds out why those 52 captive Americans didn't get released until the day after he was elected. If you have any sense you wont eat anything with aspartame, funded studies are fail, ask the Bee's or Climate change experts.

Young or Old, if they are willing and able to relearn their jobs every 2 years, then they are professionals. If not, they move to management or become bitter. Older people value their free time more because we understand, you do not get that time you wasted at work instead of with your child, back. They grow up and you get "Cat in the cradle" songs. Perhaps you will figure that out some day before its to late.

Minivan with Car Topper and stow'nGo, gives lots of room for 7 and a 100 lb dog in the middle lane. Its not for Towing though, but MPG is much better than a TruckSUV spinnoff.
The primary reason SUV's are pushed is for profits, its 8k for an SUV and 700ish for a car after contracts at least a few years ago it was.

The Real question is what is in these to politicians closets that they do NOT want someone(NSA) to accidentally slip to the press? That is the strategy of the NSA when they spot an enemy or a useful pawn.

That or they are the hidden beneficiaries via these hidden contracts to hidden purchases to hidden budgets for hidden agendas.

Its fairly obvious these are features built in on purpose. Its never a mistake when a profesional that specializes in a field suddenly produces a product with problems such as buffer overruns in key security components that were magically not vetted. Look at Ohio and how Bush got a presidency, and the machines in place.
This was done on purpose, using crap, making it easy, and hard to track when it happens. Surprise our experts didn't think of that, right!! Its all smoke an mirrors to abuse a system that still to this day doesn't have stringent "you go to prison laws" that prohibit the production of such crap and its tamper resistance requirements.
Problem is who is paying to have this continue? Find the money and you find the people making this happen.

Its my firm hope that Americans will get out their Go Team mentalities taught in Highschool and start thinking about things other than themselves. It is a hope, and if I'm hoping, I'm hoping big.

On the one side, the NSA is collecting data on American's using secret orders with a rubber duck stamp that has a pirate patch on its eye. On the other side we have Russia owned by a kleptocracy and threats of nuclear war if anyone interferes with their invasion plans.

Expect these big IT companies and many others to show up with cash in a hat to hand out to legislators to make this go away.

Would someone please write a firefox plugin that changes these words so things are easier to read:
Lobbiest - Handler for Organized Crime
PAC - Organized crime Front
H1B - Bonded Servant Program
Offshoring - Bonded Servant Program that includes nets around the building.

If people started seeing this in the articles it would be easier to explain.
