Obama's views on nuclear weapons are shaped by the 'neo realists' of Dr Ken Waltz. And Waltz believed proliferation was a GOOD thing not a bad thing, that the MORE countries have atomic weapons the MORE stable the world is. Waltz, and his acolytes Walt and Mearscheimer have Obama's ear on this topic more than any other advisers. This is why Obama quietly doesn't really worry about Iran. He would like to see them acquire The Bomb.

To the 10 or 15% who are early adopters maybe. To everyone else, no. Doesn't matter never mattered never will. And for what it's worth most carriers tweak their images so much they eat up all performance variables with their shit code and bloatware. Moreover, if you're a Sprint customer, you don't have a network unless you're on WiFi, so performance is meaningless bullshit anyway.

The application development shop management didn't feel it was a productive use of anyone's time to have to go home and sleep and eat, reproduce and what not. So they brought in cots and all the comforts of home so no one had to bother with that. While they don't do development, Gartner does that too. Hire valets and such to do all the living stuff for you so you don't have take yourself away from work.
