I left a career in systems engineering for truck driving. When I would apply for IT jobs I would get inundated with software engineer jobs. The infrastructure jobs aren't plentiful and it is a race to the bottom dollar. I pray these roaches never discover the critical shortage in truck driving, so far so good.
I am very happy with my LG Transpyre. It works on Verizon Wireless and I picked it up for a whole $76 at Wal-Mart. This phone seems to be super stable even though it is low budget. It actually has Corning Gorilla Glass and a quad core processor. It runs Android KitKat quite well and does everything I need it to. I've been using it now close to 6 months without any issue.
Victory for the consumer!
Very well said, sir! This is precisely why I stepped out of corporate America. My lifetime threshold for bullshit has been reached. The corporate life is vastly overrated,
Now this is the best piece of news I've heard all day long. This is what our elected officials are supposed to be doing for us - protecting our rights and freedoms from encroachment by the executive branch.
There isn't enough money that Uncle Sam could pay me to be the US CTO. Imagine dealing with that squeaky wheel. It's so old and poorly oiled that it's practically seized. Only the most career-masochistic people would want something like that!.
Normally I'd lawsuits like this frivolous. However, Apple purposely does not add any memory expansion capabilities in the form of an SD card slot. This is one way to force the consumer to purchase a whole new model for more memory. Note: most other smartphones have memory expansion capability.
I would very much like for this to be true. That way Sony could be caught stepping on its own dick
.... yet again. They champion RIAA and MPAA and all the while do dirty shit like this. It would be about mot just.
Arguably, they make things even less safe. I've been blinded by the camera's flash at night.
If there is even a nugget of truth to North Korea being behind the cyber attacks, then why should we be frightened of them? Why should we let some little pygmy dictator tell us how we can lead our lives? Obviously, North Korea won because Sony capitulated.
This might be off-topic or even seen as discriminatory but I will take the chance. I'm appalled at India's Government for putting it's space program above the welfare of its people. There are many Indians living in abject poverty whilst her government fritters money away on fancy projects that ultimately do nothing at all save for showing off to the world.
It looks as if Marissa Mayer's micromanagement style might've backfired. For one, she probably killed moral for the people that enjoyed the perk of working from home. Her failure will be an ultimate win for Yahoo. Micromanagement NEVER works!
For what it's worth, IT is not what it is cracked up to be. It is one of those careers that looks better from the outside, looking in. Granted, my experience is jaded and I'm autistic so I don't function well in an office environment. Have you thought about a career driving an 18 wheel semi? The reason I ask is that many companies don't care if you're an ex-con and the money is VERY VERY good. After 13 years of being in IT, the most money I made is 75,000.00 a year and I worked 90+ hours per week plus on call time. I felt as if I was only noticed when things went wrong and I got absolutely sick and tired of dealing with people who think that computers should be perfect. Furthermore, I got sick of being penalized on performance reviews for not making improvement suggestions. Every time I made a good suggestion, the answer would be "let me look into that." As a rookie truck driver, I'm earning 65,000 a year and my cubicle is an 80,000 lb semi with satellite radio, GPS, and a few other bells and whistles. I get quarterly fuel and safety bonuses and I can get pretty much routed wherever I want to go. Since it's cold and snowy up north, I've requested routes that take me through the desert southwest. If I could turn back time, I never would've gone to college - I would've gone straight into a tractor trailer training school. Also, contrary to popular belief, truck driving has challenging moments and there is almost rarely a dull day.
And I thought we were going to read something truly extraordinary about our feline friends. What a crock!
Oh, I did not realize this. I thought that was a government statistic based on reported education levels and careers.
