They conducted a psychology experiment without the consent of the test subjects. I'm not sure what the rules are for private organizations, but I do believe that any publicly funded researcher involved in the experiment, or possibly those who use the results, would be at risk of losing all federal funding. I really hope some lawsuits are filed against facebook and any of the researchers because this shouldn't creep in to becoming an accepted norm.
Get the vista VM with IE 7. There is no excuse for still using XP.
I call bullshit on their training claims. Staff that used Windows at previous jobs or at home will have a lower training needs. They also assume that staff time is free and ignore any lost productivity or errors from their new OS and applications.
The wealthy are a minority by population, but control a majority of the wealth. Their wealth is also more disposable. If the general public was smarter, then money would have less influence. Sadly, most people are ignorant and believe whatever is repeated most often because they don't have the time or intelligence fact check on their own.
Money would also have (slightly) less influence if more people voted. Instead of using the census to distribute representatives, it should be based upon the number of ballots cast in the previous election. If a portion of the population chooses not to vote, they have abdicated their right to representation for an election cycle. Inhibiting a person's ability to cast a ballot should be treated as the highest form of treason.
Elections are bought. The general public doesn't have the same cash appeal as single, large sources of money. When properly bribed with campaign contributions, politicians will do what they were paid to do.
His code was reviewed. The established process was followed. The reviewer and possibly anyone else with access to the code could be viewed as negligent for not preventing this undesirable functionality.
If you're not routing gigabit, get a usb network port or configure it to have two IPs for its one port and route between.
They would essentially have to launder the bitcoins to not kill their value. They could do this buy buying lots of random things that can easily get resold from retailers that accept bitcoins.
Many states have "at will" employment, which means that the employer can fire anyone for any reason, as long as that reason doesn't violate established law.
As far as I know, there are no laws requiring people to be honest on their resumes. They will obviously get fired if caught, but not arrested and charged with a crime.
They're not okay with drones, but I thought Alaska allowed people to hunt and shoot from a helicopter. If this is the case, then I guess they don't want the poor people to enjoy an aerial advantage.
Do you honestly believe that is how it really works?
CEO pay and bonuses is often at the expense of worker salary. This results in taxpayers subsidizing the lower worker salaries with food stamps and other financial assistance.
Wrong. CEO pay is determined by the board, not investors.
Any issues with the car will probably be blamed on the driver. "Your car doesn't accelerate properly because you're holding the steering wheel incorrectly."
