Comment Bob Lutz is bombastic! (Score 0) 535

Bob Lutz may be an icon of the automotive industry, but he is also a protector of the Detroit old guard automotive types.
  So when Bob says, "And when it comes to actually making cars," Lutz said, "there is no reason to assume that Apple, with no experience, will suddenly do a better job than General Motors, Ford, Volkswagen, Toyota or Hyundai. So I think this is going to be a gigantic money pit, but then it doesn't matter. I mean Apple has an embarrassment of riches, they don't know where to put the cash anymore. So if they burn 30 or 40 billion dollars in the car business, no one's going to notice.",
  I hear: "Apple may force the old guard automotive types to once again step up to the plate and innovate and compete with this newcomer called Apple." And they hate to change unless forced to. Change costs money they hate to spend.

"HP To Jettison Up To 30,000 Jobs As Part of Spinoff"

If done from the ISS you would have 30K of pretty light streaks in the night sky . http://www.cnet.com/news/nasa-...

It seems HP has as much concern for it's workers a human waste, they both get jettisoned.
So rather than meet cost of living payroll obligations they just shift the work overseas because of course that will create more consumers that can afford to buy their products in the US?

Preacher: Are you a sinner? Do you wish to be saved?

Dr. James Xavier: Saved? No. I've come to tell you what I see. There are great darknesses. Farther than time itself. And beyond the darkness... a light that glows, changes... and in the center of the universe... the eye that sees us all.

[Looks up at the sky]

Dr. James Xavier: No!

Preacher: You see sin and the devil! But the lord has told us what to do about it. Said Matthew in Chapter Five, "If thine eye offends thee... pluck it out!"


Comment Most "Poor" work Part time. (Score 0) 311

Most "Poor" work part-time due to the trend of employers not wanting to pay benefits as required for full-time employees, therefore they work less hours. This obviously skews this stories observation. Also most higher income jobs are salaried with no overtime pay therefore they like salaried employees to work overtime and employers of part-time or full-time employees try to avoid OT pay whenever possible.

If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
