They're big business because there is no incentive to use anything else.
True considering we practice selective capitalism in this country.
How about banning the pesticide that's killing them off?
...you deserve what you get, and any liability for a resulting "security breach" should be on you-- not on someone who can find a copy of a user's manual online.
Like previous commenters have said, these kids are damn lucky they're in Canada. In the US they'd have been fucking crucified.
True. But Amazon cannot blackmail the publisher using its marketing clout either. It would be like Microsoft making it so Windows will not run a certain company's software.
You're comparing Apples and Crocodiles. Apple rigged prices with the collusion of the major publishers which is illegal.
No, it does not count. Itanium's target market changed and they did not switch to AMD. If you want to use the "kicked the ass of" phrasing, Itanium got its ass kicked by Xeon\ because that is what the high-end servers, like the ones SGi produces now, are using that require strong number crunching if they are still using chips in the Intel/AMD ecosystem.
How could AMD64 "kick IA64's ass" when they were never in competition with each other? IA64 refers to Itanium which was never released for consumer markets but rather for high-end servers. It was to compete against Sun's SPARC, DEC's Alpha, and the SGi MIPS chips.
Amen! I finally had a chance to listen to music using Beats. To be fair I gave it a minute or two of listening and came to the conclusion the Sennheiser headphones I bought from Best Buy were much better and 75% cheaper.
I had an Apple LaserWriter Select 360 (built around a Canon engine, IIRC) that I bought new in 1994 last me until mid 2011. HP was putting out some damned good printers back then, too, before Carly Fiorina came in and turned HP into peddlers of second-rate shit.
Honorable mention to the TV in my basement, an RCA F35751MB-- the biggest CRT TV I could find in 1994. I don't yet own a flatscreen, because I'm just letting them get better and cheaper until the RCA finally gives up the ghost.
And I would say a reaction formation is your problem.
This isn't a "political blacklist". He's not being "blacklisted" first and foremost. He is being asked to resign.
Second, it's not an issue of politics. It's an issue of humanity. But unfortunately some people having equality has become a political issue and it really shows just how sick the US really is.
You mean it was disclosed because it was mandatory? If you want to play that card, the Prop 8 people were threatening businesses with boycotts well before that.
Those donations should be public. Unless one lacks the courage of ones convictions.
Brendan Eich is NOT being asked to step down because of "personal beliefs" so let's drop that BS right now. He crossed the line by donating money to actively strip away rights of individuals which is a whole different ball game. But it comes down to this even though most people won't admit it... It's still socially acceptable to be homophobic. If he had given money to the KKK or something this would not be an issue. But because it is still ok to bash gays and make/keep them second class citizens it's still a "debate"
