"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." I think that is true enough... may be just a saying but how in hell he will do that. I mean. First, Capitalism is a competitive thing... people loose, people win, that should be clear even for Bill Gates. What we need here to erradicate poverty is a cooperative system. Money is just a device, an invention that grew bigger than its purpose. This guy may be the smartests guy alive for business but he needs to see outside the box. Funny thing is he has the time and the money to do so... so questions arise on what is the real plan or how he plans to do it. For as long as I remember each year we have more benefical concerts, programs, donations, etc... the amount of money destined to charity is huge... I agree is not well managed but poverty increases at a higher rate. Something must be wrong in the wiring of capitalism.
If he would have the right intention to measure response time both bug reports should have been filed at the same time... filing a seocnd one with the text saying "hoping it gets more attention than the competition" is pretty biased and provocative to the actions.
So basically he is saying that a method of technology is flawed because his (and other people) buying behaviours are not compatible with it...
Independence Day... light years away
"Microsoft had the courage to continue making significant incompatible changes to improve the API" apply this to politics and it gets a little scary... oh... wait.
The problem, as I see it, is that even if you test it against everything that "everything" is what the tester think it is everything... there are a lot of programmers here so it should be no surprise that even if you are a security freak there is always a chance that something is missing, overlooked. Take of and landing are critical and it is were small things can cause a big mess so I don't think it is a big deal to turn things off. There is no even one single unbiased, to the point, non confusing research about cell phones and cancer for example... I don't know but turning the cell phone 5-10 minutes during a flight is ok with me.
If there is an specific goal and people is motivated they will cope with it for a short time but the correct answer is NO, it is not the right thing to do. I mean you can do the favor for a couple of weeks if it is for a deadline but working like crazy
... and until the company is profitable... by the way, when and how it is profitable because maybe profitable means to work 11 hours a day for an entire year.
If profitable means 1 month of 11/24 hs work with no pay, ok but there must be something in return at the end, written.
Yeah, that talks really bad about their marketing and policies... if they manage money the same way... wait... oh
I will never eat Burger King again
Oh come on! change that yellowish title.
Agree... even with nice chairs it will be depressing.
why not rethink the entire educational system instead of changing desk... I mean... WT*
Because if I have 3 services and have... lets put a number 10% market share and then I unify all three and say about this new one: we are almost at %10 market share... it is a lie! yo are only regaining / recounting what you already have... speed is relative there, there is no strength in that, they are not gaining. They are regaining and marketing it as an achievement.
I was going to ask about that... growing from where? because people assumes Bing is new while in reality it is a replacement of Live so counting from zero is like a distorted point of view. This sounds like economy... after loosing 20% of something then gain 5% at fast peace and claim WE ARE GROWING!
I agree... most managers see this as a money / time / resources issue so by proving that you will save them some bucks they will be more eager to listen. Sad but true.
