Comment: Put even more people out of work (Score 1) 90

by CokeBear (#44917369) Attached to: Robotic Bartender Programmed To Recognize When You Are Ready For a Drink

Great, now even more of us will be unemployed. Won't even be able to get a job tending bar, when a robot can replace us.

You think the economy is bad now, wait until unemployment is 60%. /Yes, I know I can always train for a better job and work harder, but that doesn't change the numbers. In the future there won't be jobs for most people. What will society look like at that point, with a massive unemployed underclass?

Comment: Give half the money to the 3 big stakeholders (Score 2) 570

by CokeBear (#39163463) Attached to: Apple Has Too Much Money

Take half the money, divide it into 3 piles, for the 3 stakeholders:
1) Shareholders in the form of a one-time dividend.
2) Employees get a one time bonus
3) Customers get a gift card based on their purchases in the past quarter.

Apple is still left with 50 Billion, and keeps everyone happy.

When they hit $100B again, rinse & repeat.
