It's good for the gov't, and good for the corps too!
Shame We the People get screwed when they use it
and I admit to not reading the many links, but taking the article at face value (dangerous I know)
if all of it is true and accurate, it sounds like Mr. Z is a world-class asshole and is trying to bring back the dark days of robber barons building their wealth on the backs/lives of indentured servants...
Yet one more reason (like you needed another really) not to use Facebook
to stop having shit made in China? We have the labour, technology, skills and parts to make it here at home.
I know why we don't (capitalism!) but damnit, we should.
Back to sneakernet?
"The human eye is a wonderful device. With a little effort, it can fail to see even the most glaring injustice."
This is a quote, not mine, but a quote nonetheless that holds relevance. When do we tear down the walls and regain our country?
Well I'll be damned...would be nice is a manual was included that mentioned this stuff...
I far and away prefer the Android.
I had an ancient BB World edition, for the QWERTY keyboard (and that's about all it could do well, text/email)
A had an Android tablet (tegra quad core something, cost me a pretty penny too) and the Android app store was quite easy to search.
I now have an iPhone 4 and I *hate* it, typing any text it terrible, not least of which for the constant autocorrect getting in the way, but it's very difficult to find anything useful in the app store (a battery meter that displays a numerical percentage for example)
I've encountered more BS apps in the Apple world than I ever did in the Android environment.
Next phone will be an Android.
I worked for a small firm for 11 years. I singlehandedly landed the largest contract in the company's history (mainly by seducing the CEO of the other company, but that's for another story) and had a stipulation in the contract for a bonus (10k in this case) once the requirements of the contract were completed.
Contract done, no bonus (the boss was a cheapskate) so I
(a) quit on the spot
(b) called all my clients and let them know I was no longer working there, and why.
I left the field I was in entirely, but last I heard, the firm had folded because no one would do business with him any more.
Long story short, treat your employees well and they will respect you when they leave.
And you commented trying to seem insightful by proving he was a selfish bastard.
It's turtles all the way down.
>>Every one of you past the age of 30 has something in their police file from a "concerned citizen."
I sure as hell hope I've got a police record, and one day I hope to be able to look at it, and see what I've been accused of.
If you google for my name , either full or with middle, I am the only one that turns up in America with that name.
In europe it is a different story, as my last name is the equivalent of "smith" over there.
If they do not want to obey the laws, then neither shall I.
That with a good firewall, you could block SS from doing anything not local, and solve this issue.
But I'm sure I'm missing something.
But really, how out of touch with reality do you have to be to think putting ads on a user's desktop is a good idea?
