It's easy for Microsoft - nobody's actually buying their phones.
this language is also based on the C language
No, it's based on BASIC. That's why they call it VisualBasic. It's a completely different family of programming languages.
He loses credibility there & then just keeps piling on bullshit afterwards.
Logic is an Apple product as well.
People stuck on "cheap hosting solutions" don't pay good money to developers to develop software for them. Cheap hosting solutions don't even come close to scaling to anything beyond a blog for a local business.
Unless you've decided to work on a bottom of the barrel open source CMS/Forum system (a market that's pretty much saturated already), the argument that "PHP is the only thing we can run" is just not relevant. Maybe it carried some weight ten years ago but it's a non-issue these days.

It reminds me of tobacco tax they tried to push through a few years ago in Oregon. They claimed that it would both reduce smoking and provide funding for children's health.

That's wouldn't be "looking for people with liberal arts degrees", that's "looking for people with demonstrable technical experience" and finding that they just happen to have a liberal arts degree. The lit degree is almost completely irrelevant here.
Forget self-defense for a minute, how well is this going to work when you've been in the woods hunting for 3 days and haven't wash your hands?
If you're using a 3-digit LED display, yes.
Zuckerberg was already going to Harvard when he started Facebook. He was in the club from the beginning.
This is in like somebody demanding a $12k Kia have premium sound system, leather seats & a V-8 under the hood.
