The result is that you have a small, niche-generation of people who were able to get very involved in 'Tech' because of their familiarity through a learning process that required reasonable effort, and much of the rest of the generation has just always had the presence of 'Tech' around them with very little effort. The former will likely be advantaged when it comes to careers involving more fundamental implementations of technology (think SysAdmin and Coder), the latter will likely find more success where tech is used as an enabler, or where they are able to leverage more sophisticated higher-level platforms (think Modern-Day Web Designer and most App development.)

Seriously? This is a real thing? Fuck the current Tort system...
Betcha their ransom pay rate is way higher with gamers. Smart move, fuckers...
Look, my inherent dislike of AAPL (and the people who love it) died some time ago. The problem I have with them now is not the fault of the Company - it's the idiots who keep buying this stuff. Seriously, gold colored iPhones, solid gold tchotckes that are designed to be obsolete within 2 years - madness.
If you absolutely must do it the way you are doing, just buy a used Polycom and be done with it.
Also, thank you for Spider.
