Well I do think the Tweeter crossed the line by calling out the employee by name.

In essence he might have killed her career, with her on a bad day. Besides just because he might have done that in the past (may have been on a flight with more seats available, the kids were being better behaved, etc...) doesn't mean it is strictly allowed. She was probably following the rules, but her tact may have been a little down for that day. Then by posting her name, is just giving her a bad name for a simple mistake in tact that anyone may have done.

I don't hate the Flat UI style. But for Microsoft and Apple to adopt it is not really their thing.

Google has always had the flat style, it was their thing.
With Microsoft and Apple doing it it makes them look like they are a cheap rip off.

Apple did start to go a little too far in the 3d thing. I think when they made the Dock background 3d perspective.

Microsoft in Windows 7 had a good balance.

Now I argue to anyone who is thinking about skipping a degree to go straight to work is a bad idea. Because your job even with a 2 year degree will tend to have your career max out rather quickly.

But in terms of getting a job if you graduate with a 2 year degree or a 4 year degree you will tend to start out with the same types of jobs. So if you are not ambitious in moving up the food chain you can get a good job without the hassle of extra college education.

And still in most institutions you will be able to work up if you can prove yourself. However the degree is an extra tool in your life box to help you out.

A degree is really just a piece of paper stated that you have done some stuff at an acceptable level. You could have done this stuff without having someone grade you. But that paper still helps.

Microsoft is moving away from the home user market their old Bread and Butter and moving towards more to B2B and Government type of work. Kinda like IBM.
They are not going to switch over quickly, and they are going to try to gain consumer market again. But MS will be making more and more of its money from the boring stuff.

Minimum wage is actually not the big of a deal.
Most Companies do not pay their employers minimum wage they pay them higher.
Minimum wage usually will go the the Teens first job, And other part time work.
For people who are working full time, they get paid above the minimum wage.
The exception is for Tip workers. Where these laws do not effect as much anyways.

Most of the growth activity is actually in areas that don't pay minimum wage anyways.

In short minimum wage laws do the following.
For the Democrats it make it look like they are looking out the little guy, with a law without any real benefit or cost.

For the Republicans it gives them a talking point against the democrats, explaining how they are not focusing on the big picture and trying to keep jobs.

Nither side is really that effective, or hazardous. Until you get a significant increase in wages. Say $20 minimum wage, where it would be enough for the low end workers to have a significant improvement in quality of life, however at the same time, making many jobs much to expensive to maintain, and force companies to find ways to improve efficiency or outsource.

I Want a game of decent quality, with no add, no in app purchase, no attempt to try to get you to purchase a full version, no attempt to try to upsell an other service and all free.

Heck why limit it to game or software. I want all my products for free with no strings attached. However I want to be sure my employer pays me for my job of writing software.
