I have first hand experience with these sorts of issues. I set up a web email account for my mother and taught her how to use it. It wasn't long before icons and menus started moving around and she got confused.
Lately this particular email provider has completely changed how things worked so that even savvy users have problems with it.
However at the end of day my mother and I are not the customers, we are the product, and Marissa will of course of do what is in the best interests of the actual paying customers. It sucks, but I don't see it changing while advertising is the only workable business model of the internet (even porn is really just 'advertising of porn', which is why you get these endless pits of porn link farms (or so I've been told)).
Pentium 3? 17 inch monitor? How long ago did this happen?
News for nerds, stuff from last decade.
Seriously, I'm still waiting from a company that realizes having private offices plus collaborative spaces (you know, a old school office) is the best way to go.
Well I've been waiting for this since 1994, so don't hold your breath.
Fortunately for me the company I currently work for instituted a 'work from home' policy for employees who lived "a long way away". I decreed that 10kms was "a long way" and basically stopped showing up. If they ever object I will immediately quit because I can literally feel my blood pressure rising when I sit in an open plan office and have got to the point in my life where my health is more important than my career.
Fuck! Open! Plan! Offices!
Getting rapped by buch of programmers is worst experience ever.
Yeah, it's pretty bad.
I was in a small business of 10.
Two of them turned out to be complete assholes.
Is that binary?
One religion's rules have no binding any anyone not in that religion, especially other religions.
Try telling that to a Muslim.
You will get 'a response' but that response will depend on the religion of the offendee.
Islam = bombings, shootings, stabbings
all other religions = slogans, placards, letters to the editor.
Islam is violent. Wake up to the truth!
I think it will struggle for sales since it needs to be accompanied by an iPhone to be useful.
It reminds me of those 'mini credit cards' that were introduced a while back that seem to have faded away.
The reasoning was that they would be more convenient to carry as they are smaller
However they don't work in all machines
So they also come with a full size card for use in such cases
Which means now you have to carry 'two' cards
So why not just carry the large one?
I always wondered whether the one on earth knew about the others.
So, what do you intend to do during that extra second added to that day?
Well there's this novel I've been intending to write but haven't got around to it yet.
Now am I saying women can't do this work? No. I am rather saying they don't want to do it. They sit down in the programming classes, notice it is not fun for them, and leave.
It is a choice.
Mods, please mod this up.
Everyone else, please read and understand this.
This has been exactly my experience since I my university days more than 25 years ago. Women 'can' do IT, they just don't like it, and leave.
... I can withstand...
I don't either of these phrases equate to 'being happy', which is what TFA was actually referring to.
But yeah, most of us keep showing up anyway because we need the money.
And your sources are: None what so ever.
You just engaged in a personal attack. The last resort for people who can't actually refute facts provided by someone they disagree with.
