Maybe they're suing IBM for allowing a clandestine operation to affect their stock price?
female brains are designed to facilitate communication between analytical and intuitive processing modes.
This sounds to me like women are wired to be better at STEM fields than men.
Maybe your 4 month contract requirement is weeding out the good coders that don't want to give up a full-time job for a 4 month test that may leave them without a job if they don't live up to some hard to quantify metric of "good enough".
Exactly. I'm a senior software developer that's never had a problem being employed. Why would I quit my current job to take a risk with a short-term contract? Will I get full benefits during these four months?
No one (least of all him) can explain why he thought it was legit, especially considering how paranoid he is about securing his data. I had to spend a large chunk of my vacation reformatting and re-installing everything on his computer.
If you're car is not moving, then technically you're not driving. Granted, the DUI laws disagree, but common sense does not.
I've been working on the Linux kernel for 10 years with numerous commits upstream, and I've never communicated with Linus.

The insult is that I read another stupid post from timothy.
No kidding. The worst performers in our company are those that are friends of the executives.
No, we borrow an hour in the fall and pay it back in the spring, at 0% interest. So it's really free time!
If the PS4 support is anything like the Xbox 360 support, then you're not missing much. I got tired of all the limitations of my Xbox when it came to playing media files, and so I bought a WD TV Live. It's blows away my Xbox. I can attach a USB hard drive to the WD box which then appears as an SMB mount on my Mac. I then rip a Blu-ray to an 20GB MKV file, and it plays perfectly. No transcoding needed.
Then what's the point of the contract if it has a cancellation period?
Dude, please just admit that this is a stupid idea.
Then he doesn't sign the contract, and instead goes to work for someone else.
But how would he know if it sucks until after he starts working at the company for a few months? He needs to sign the contract in order to get the job in the first place, so by the time he finds out the company sucks, it's too late.
Not necessarily. Some CPUs allow for multiple hardware stacks -- when the interrupt occurs, the CPU also does a stack switch.
A good attorney and expert witness will make it clear to the jury that there are several standard and well-known processes that need to be followed to test software, and that Toyota did not follow them.
A stellar employee would probably hate that. What if the company sucks? Now the employee has a great salary but is forced to work with people he doesn't like. What's the point of that? Without the contract, he could have just quit and gotten another job with another company.
Unions and job contracts are great for run-of-the-mill workers who have little hope of job mobility. The anti-poaching agreements were not created for those employees. They were created for employees who can easily get another job with a competitor.
