If my mother-in-law had a smart fridge...it would look at the expiration date on some of the containers and call for the paramedics instead of ordering replacement food.
No really, it doesn't work like that.
I unfriend you!
Confusion between consultant and contractor? Many consultants say what needs to be done but do not implement their suggestions.
King of the Forest, they don't live in.
Call centers...breed a special variety of idiot. They brute force break everything around them with complete lack of understanding of what they are doing.
I got titanium and bone grafts in my neck. So I am already a zomborg. Rise of the machines or zombie apocalypse I am already part of the winning team!
Intelligence is...the ability to learn from other people. Even if the other people are idiots.
It is just like when you start chasing a girl but never catch her because she keeps running away.
Just be careful, sometimes but only very rarely, do they suddenly turn around and catch you. That is how I ended up married.
Gosh Mickey! I gained a few pounds and all, but no need to call me a planet.
A proper kilt...will keep the ice off the space craft.
No "true Scotsman" rocket would launch without one!
Obama has a Russian chess tutor named Putin.
Don't think they are playing on tablets and they may just be betting the entire world!
See if they can phase out pennies first. If they can't get rid of the smallest coin, they have little chance of phasing out all cash in general.
Provide money and guidance to the local school systems then let them buy the approved technology they need rather than what is dictated to them. Why is WiFi better or more important than web hosting? What if a school already has good WiFi but needs devices to make use of that network? Sounds like the "phasing out" process is more like "last call" at a bar and tells people to get those services from E-Rate now whether they need it or not cause soon the trough will only be feeding you WiFi. Guidance on good economic solutions for school technology needs and funding is what the school systems need. But hey keep on shoveling "one size fits all" technology into the schools. It keeps the vendors happy even if it doesn't help the schools or children all that much.
I might as well mention that I am a Systems Administrator and not a programmer despite my computer science education. I am a "lazy work-a-holic" in that I will work like hell to make sure I do not have to do a repetitive task more than once. Scripting and automation are wonderful things. I believe this sums it up nicely.
Necessity is the mother of invention. Laziness is its father.
