Keeping thier investors happy. Consumer be damned the investor is all that matters.
You can't. Been this way for years in relationship to entertainment media. What you are purchasing is a license to listen or watch the media and that is all. Just be thankful that they aren't as sue happy as they could be. That new cd/mp3 your playing in your car or porch? If other people can hear it besides you then it is considered an infraction and they could fine or sue you for it.
Think you meant 867-5309
Heh, most of the business systems I support have maybe 1 gig of ram, 60 gig hard drives, run windows xp and standard Rez is 1024x768. We replace 1 computer a month which gives us a 10 year turn around currently.
Also, we have quite a few less trees then we did in 1902..
AND that is the BIGGEST traffic law that people break now days. Every where I go people are running at 70 mph with bumper to bumper traffic. I believe the distance is supposed to be 1 car length for ever ten miles per hour. If people followed this 90 percent of the accidents that happen probably wouldn't unfortunately it seems that most people behind the wheel anymore are inconsiderate and care about nothing but themselves and shaving 20 seconds off of their time to wherever they are going.
Actually, you DON'T own the game you bought. The only thing you get with your money is a license granting you the right to play it. Been this way for a while now.
The cake is a lie.
..sorry, couldn't resist.
Yes, people have a vote, but they only have a vote between the presented candidates which are usually backed by corporate interests. Running for office is very expensive here and unless you are rich to begin with or have sponsorship generally you don't go very far.
Heh. If your work requires it then they should be paying for it. Unless of course you are self employed.
"Fluorescent lighting from hell, vending machines for lunch, 19" square monitors from the 1980's, computers running Windows XP, no service pack. " Sounds like a majority of corporate America.
This describes 75% of the systems in my company.
Yes, this was something that made me ponder as well. They make a big deal about personalizing your installation of office 2013 and the only thing that any of the options does is add some sort of squiggle in the upper right of the window bar. I found it perplexing and almost why bother.
A lot of business will not be able to use 2013 in the first place. If they are like us and 90% of our user base is still using windows xp office 2010 is the highest we can go. 2013 will only install on systems that are windows 7 or above which rules quite a few people out. We are a small shop with 17 servers and 162 workstations in house and it just isn't economical to upgrade everything. Especially with only 2 it personnel, me being one of them, and a very small budget. Currently we replace computers at one a month which would bring all of our systems to windows 7 or above within about 8 years. Hmm, think I need to go kickstart that old kaypro 2...
The odd thing is that around here a merchant is more likely to process a transaction as credit over debit. They say the fees for debit are higher. Shrug.
On average people break at least 10 laws a day, just watch people drive, what's another one to the list.
