It's always interesting when logic and science gets pitted against libertarianism on Slashdot.
We learned our lesson with NEC too. Never again.
It works fine for me across devices, stays in sync, gets archived to my gmail, it's xmpp...
You are talking about income. I wonder what the difference would be between a top 10%er's income versus capital gains.
You could almost start wondering if this is a marketing move. Dwindling use in a non-flagship product... say you're discontinuing it and BOM the internet lights up with people talking about how much they love it and can't live without it and how it's the awesomest product ever. Tons of positive buzz. "We listened to our users and have decided to continue Google Reader for the foreseeable future"
I got the impression that it wasn't just grunts that were telecommuting. The cogs churn out code and that can be done from anywhere, frankly. China, India, Topeka. You're right, they don't matter. But when people that have influence and are decision makers are working from home, then you can have problems, especially when you're trying to turn the ship around.
I can see telecommuting being ok when you've got an established company and clear objectives/projects, etc. When you're reorganizing, just starting, or trying to turn the fortunes of your company around I think you really have to work "together".
"17 years" seems like an oddly specific number.
With all those players on one side of the issue, it's pretty easy choose sides... even if you don't know what the issue at hand is.
If you don't vote for the lesser of two evils you get Vice President Sarah Palin.
The only options are to raise prices (which is a business killer in fast food) or to cut staff and hope the service doesn't degrade.
Which is why minimum wage is mandated by government - so that everyone is hit the same way. No one gets a competitive advantage.
Yes, "Americans really do take the idea of citizenship and the republic quite seriously"
I want what you're smoking.
It's almost like there's no end of stories coming out of Japan about the loonies that make their own guns and go on killing sprees.
Another one of those oddities when discussing guns is the reasoning that "anything like the assault weapons ban is stupid because it doesn't actually do anything but regulate cosmetic things." OK, then why do you have a problem with it if it's inconsequential?
So let's regulate something that's not just cosmetic.... oh no, you can't do that either because it actually DOES something.
A: Regulated meant disciplined in 1780s America.
B: Mexico and Brazil have virtually no legal civilian gun ownership and their murder rates (including those with firearms) are orders of magnitude higher than ours.
C: States and Cities in the US with strict gun control regimes are some of the most dangerous places to be in this country. The stats you are swallowing whole include suicides in them to make the rural areas look dangerous.
D: You know nothing about this topic and are simply seeking information to confirm your biases.
Good day to you sir.
The ironing in this post is delicious. Cherry-pick a few data points to confirm your own biases before accusing the other guy of confirming his own biases.
