Coming soon to a country near you - the Great Firewall of China, ensuring that you only get to see company-approved media. We'll protect the shit out of you.
It's the damnedest thing. CEOs with Experience being willing to work for only 500k, instead of millions or tens of millions per year.
More femitechnonazi bait , but I'll bite: At my last job, I was told the salary cap for my position was X and there was nothing that could be done to circumvent it. When I threatened to leave, they made a new position for me, with a cap that was suspiciously around what I was asking for. Aside from how easy it is to get around the cap, shouldn't you award people based on their skills, not on the penis or vagina? And aren't negotiation and salesmanship highly valued skills?
If a woman or man wants to perform that role for money, how dare you try to stop them? Do you take equal pleasure in denigrating the men and women who perform in pornographic films? How about for restaurants where people with no job skills dress up in a furry costume to attract visitors? If you don't like booth babes, don't be a booth babe. Otherwise, let adults decide for themselves if the job they are doing is sexist and inappropriate, otherwise you are coddling them and acting like they are unable to make their own decisions because they are just a (girl/boy), which is at the very least patronizing and at the worse is sexist in itself.
I'd love to have a test that determines if an article is fembaiting drivel, and then promptly discourages me from clicking on it. Who cares if a function is written by a woman, or by a man, or a transgender, or by the application itself in a meta sort of way? Is this what they talk about at the Woman only tech conferences (like this one, which for the first time ever, is allowing men to attend the 'celebration of Women' tech conference!), in addition to ironically talking about equality and being included in the "male dominated tech club" ?
I DID see a lot of drunken or passed on Salarymen (and 1 or 2 office ladies), but this isn't about irresponsible adults, its about the children. Won't someone please think of the children?!
So they are concerned about pretty much the exact same dangers that exist with alcohol currently? I just came back from Japan. Drinking age is 20 (I think) but pretty much no one cards you. I didn't see groups of 15 year olds stumbling in to the J-rail track.
"Up to 18%" is about as scientific as a horoscope telling you that you may have good fortune today. When did an infographic from a marketing company become a valid, independently verified source, worthy of a Slashdot article ?
They could be responsible for spreading life throughout the cosmos, or DESTROYING life. Surely you've all seen The Fifth Element -- and the darkness wasn't moving at nearly the speed of light!
Don't most people use a bank card / ATM card / debit card to withdraw money, and not a credit card? I know you can get the option of taking out cash on a credit card, but aren't debit cards the norm?
You hear that? The silence is the sound of the feminists coming out of the woodwork to voice their disapproval of inequality of a statement that reinforces the perception that only single women are vulnerable.
Christian schools ban evolution discussion as well as any other science that contradicts their religious beliefs. The Amish only school their children until around 6th grade. I fail to see how this is any different, other than those folks are mostly brown skinned and some politicians say their shit stinks more than ours.
Sounds like Jengaphobia to me.
If the Fire Phone is anything like the advertising-riddden walled garden of a device as the Kindle Fire HD that I bought, I am not sure how much traction it will get, no matter what the price point. I couldn't jailbreak that thing fast enough. I understand trying to push people to your own stores for purchases, but when your stores are lackluster, it just feels like a really really cheap experience. I suppose you get what you pay for.
So people being beheaded and murdered is perfectly OK, but if someone posts a picture of your pink bits, it's time to get the FBI involved?
