Remind us how much they had to write off after they'd bought EDS, whose star was already on the wane (because customers had sussed the business model). Utterly predictable.
The Ayatollah's right. You can't sustain irrationality, autocracy and extremism against a tide of information and entertainment shared worldwide and without regard to gender. That's probably what he wants to do, so his policy is wise. But it won't last, even if things have to get (very) much worse before they get better.
Not true. The Wimmin in my family consult WP daily, for likely 'facts'. But they can't post because their lifegiving-lifestyle would be 'original research', and what they want is exchange of experience (and anecdote). Things like 'MumsNet' do that well; it's not a competition.
Most employees probably have a computer at home. MS dominance ensures it will be running Windows. Nobody non-tech wants to change their mindset every day they go to work. Surprised that Win8 didn't make Linux seem easy, though.
So call it 'Bing Bong'. That should fix its reputation.
Imam - it already works well in the most desolate parts of the world, and has for hundreds of years.
It's hard, but if you are a real Pro, you will know how to fix it, and (more important) how to fix the situation that led to the failure. Then walk away, and your reputation will most certainly follow and reward you.
Thanks for one sensible answer, more than half way down the thread. Now, can we all guess what is it about Norwegian supply that is so different? Different rules for things connected? Current limitations when most distribution is overhead, or run from more distant step-down, different lengths for charging leads... or what?
Not a 'criminal', simply a 'traitor' - a traitor can have good motives (good enough for him), but we-all used to shoot a lot of 'em.
Some UK reports suggest that the 'scientists' and 'tourists' on this ship were ecofreaks seeking publicity to show that some previous explorer's route had become eco-wickedly ice-free. So... they got stuck in 'unforseen' thick ice. And so did their rescuers. And then they were evacuated thanks to an awful lot of gas-guzzling machinery - and still (today) can't leave the area. In the UK, we really do enjoy a good joke like this.
At school in the '60s, with a camouflaged 30-foot aerial and decent earth, I used a crystal set (extra bridge diodes) to charge a condenser, which ran a single-transistor amplifier for another crystal set. Or so I thought... but, it DID 'get Lux.'
Ultimately-brave men are going right in to Somalia and other hell-holes to take out the nasties, while you-all are trying to make more difficult the work of the services which our taxes pay to protect us.
Micromanagement is why Herr Hitler failed, when he had world-class Generals.
Just when I thought it was safe (at 65+) to come out from behind the sofa...
Doesn't S. M. Brin's (still-current) wife run a DNA testing outfit that purports to identify genetic predisposition to disease? Interesting market sector!
