No one is doing any serious gaming on a tablet.
No, it was pixel dust.
Instead of having 10 developers and one architect you would have 6 architects and 4 developers (not "senior developers"). And yes...coding is a commodity, something that can be done by third world developers if they are handed a clean, comprehensive design wrapped around the requirements. People are going to get sick of paying 10 100k dollar a year code monkeys that fuck up everything they touch. We have tried outsourcing/offshoring everything (with sloppy requirements hoping for the best because it seemed cheaper) and that train-wreck didn't work.
Funny...this just happened at work.
Main story line of X files was awesome (shadow group including the joint chiefs who killed JFK for wasting everyone's career...makes more sense than anything I have ever heard..with a smattering of ridiculous urban legends to deflect the seriousness of their theory/revelation...carried to an alien invasion end for sheer profit).
Watch Caprica before BSG.
Homeland. Boring. Sons of Anarchy. Boring.
I have been trying to get through the first episode of firefly for a year. Please help me understand how this is captivating scifi.
It has been known for a century that you cannot target smart people (most popular shows bore the absolute hell out of me). That is why state school systems were created with the purpose of standardizing as much of the population as possible so goods could be targeted and produced in massive quantities with less risk. We see every tree in the forest through the lens of the industrial revolution.
I think they are just used to the model where people ravenously jump on a new show and stay glued to it until it dies. It doesn't work like that anymore. I consume when I want to and when I have time. The show will be there forever...what is the rush? There is nothing wrong with all of this content...it will sit around and people will steadily consume it. I know people who will not watch a popular show (Walking Dead) util it is over! People like to binge watch without commercials on their favorite streaming service. How is this not completely obvious?
"the company was planning an IPO in London that would have taken as much as $200 million from investors"
There...fixed that for ya.
...there is competition? Please point it out. I wouldn't let Android near my desktop. Os(Linu)X is fucking joke that will be abandoned. Please.
That is exactly what tyranny is. We have come to associate the word tyrant with something negative. We CAN elect a tyrant to clean house if we want...or to wage war.
I think we need a tyrant every now and again. They can still be removed by the people and we would get a break from congress for a while. Actually, congress would still have a role...but their only influence would be on merit alone.
I think the shark was just jumped.
HOST SYSTEM RESPONDING, PROBABLY UP...
