Comment: Re:They have Bosses (Score 1) 522 522

If they don't have bosses who did all that firing a few weeks ago? They may have less managing than any place else, but they still have bosses. This isn't Lord of the Flies

This is exactly what I was thinking. And I'm curious why this comment seems to have been modded down.

Comment: "Invented" the tablet in 1990's? (Score 1) 374 374

I'm sure I saw someone using a tablet computer in the 1984 (which I'm pretty sure was before the 90's) film "Runaway" starring Tom Selleck. I think this concept might have been around a while longer. As much as Hollywood science makes some people sad, I wonder how many "unique" inventions and concepts appeared some years after a movie.

Experiments must be reproducible; they should all fail in the same way.
