An anonymous reader writes "On the Spotify company blog, CTO Oskar Stål apologized to users and said there has been a security breach at Spotify, where some systems and internal company data was accessed without permission. Evidence given suggests only one Spotify user's account was accessed and that no security or payment information was taken. As a security step, Spotify has announced they are releasing an updated Android application over the coming days, as well as requiring some users to re-enter their login details."

heroic dying hero

Parent explained that Jobs could be a giant cunt because history would only remember his achievements, not his weaknesses. How the fuck did you read that as treating him as a hero. That's about as anti-hero description as you could get: "Yeah, he did some good stuff, not by courage, just because he had nothing to lose and tried all sort of shits to be remembered"

You can get toilet printed with its picture if you need to vent you anger.

Yeah, sure Amazon buys a product, remove one of its feature because they want bigger margins than the company they bought it from, but we should blame Apple. And next we should also blame Obama for not gifting Amazon with a copyright exemption so they can distribute the comics the way they want without having to give a cut of their profit to some stupid copyright owners.

When 10 million people sign up, republicans will rush to yell

"See I told you Obama was lying about 7 million insurance signups! It's 10 million.

Obama is the worst liar in history!!!"

By the way, when an insurance company dropped you after you got sick before the ACA, you couldn't keep it your insurance then either. So Obama never should have made that promise, as it was obviously contrary to reality, both before and after the ACA.

The main difference is that now you are guaranteed the ability to purchase real health insurance. It's a tragedy I know...

Welcome to real life. HR is run on a budget like everything else in a company. Even if they were technically able to, they simply do not have the resource to properly assess everybody. So like everybody else in this life, they look for external sign of competence. A degree is such a sign, recommendation of a friend is another one, resume that fits the requirement perfectly, ...

On the flip side, it works in your way too. Why do you think that most development job is not done in cheapo place like India, China, ... ? That's not because there is nobody as good as you are over there, it is just that they don't know how to find them. So enjoy working from home as a developer, providing exactly the same service a Mexican would provide for a third of the price, if only he could prove his skills.

Wasn't that the other way around ? They standardised first the wall part to USB 5V which more or less all constructor (including Apple) followed. Now they want to standardize the other end of the cable, the actual plug in the phone.

BTW, isn't micro-USB limited to some ridiculously small Amp compared to the 2A / 5A / 15A that new devices draw from the cable now ?
