That's because none of that little shit matters. Nobody really cares about a bunch of guys who live in their parents' basements arguing about video games. People do care when a bunch of people threaten other people with bodily harm.

Get some perspective, moron.

Best part is when you're in a meeting and your phone buzzes, you can just check your wrist to see what it was which is far more discrete than pulling out your phone, unlocking it, and then finding the right app.

Or you can just get a Windows Phone which shows all of the message indicators on the lock screen.

Unfortunately, CIOs and other execs just see the numbers on a spreadsheet and don't take the costs of outages that you can't control into account.

Class warfare has nothing to do with it, you thick shit. The wealthy run the large companies, which in turn own the governments (at least in the US), who make the decisions not to do anything about climate change, and also to spew utter horseshit like, "There's nothing we can do." Regular people aren't the ones clamoring to do nothing about climate change.
