There are a lot of CEOs who make $1 per year to pay less in income tax, and rake in hundreds of millions in stock comp. Also, $70K is barely adequate in Seattle.

>> they can't be a customer of ours
They very much can be. They just can't be customers of _Windows_. Mark is confusing Windows with Microsoft again. They can be customers of Azure, they can be customers of Office, they can be customers of SQL Server. I mean, just about any Microsoft product can run (and therefore can be sold) on Linux just fine. Except for Windows itself.
Particularly for server products, I just don't get why Microsoft insists on offering them only on Windows. Seems like at some point they too will wake up to the reality on this.
If these are the two choices, I'd rather have Cruz. At least he only caused minor clusterfucks so far. Fiorina has ruined one of the most significant US technology companies. I don't want her to do the same to the rest of the country.
This is what desperation looks like. Paraphrasing Vic Gundotra (of Google+ "fame"): three turkeys don't make an eagle.
How about introducing "against all" option on the ballot? I bet that would boost turnout. Democrats and Republicans are two flavors of the same: parties wholly controlled by corporations.
Kinda getting tired of all these "project X" things that never ship. If you can ship it, ship it. If you can't -- STFU and work on it, or cancel the project.
How about implementing parental controls on Android instead? I can't give my kid an Android phone or tablet, because it's not possible to disable Youtube on it, and Youtube is full of garbage.
See e.g. Symform.
Except of course gold is in no way "rare". There are hundreds of thousands of tons of it all over the world, with tons mined daily.
Actually no, they did not: http://hotair.com/archives/201...
I dunno. I would, even if I was a hippie treehugger creative type. There was a fatwa on their head. That means a dude with a Kalashnikov would eventually come. So instead of filming from their cell phone, the person who filmed how the policeman was executed in cold blood could open fire. This was in broad daylight, and buildings were full of people. I would totally fuck them up if I had my gun on me in that situation.
Don't you wish some of those slain had firearms to defend themselves? The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
Gold is not very useful unless you believe it is valuable.
It's already illegal for a felon to have a weapon, and it's already illegal for anyone to use a weapon in the commission of a crime (and last I checked, shooting people _not_ in self defense is still a crime in this country). So your lawmaking escapade seems to be a little misplaced.
"If a grandma had genitals of a man, she would be a grandpa". While I do think that carrying firearms onto the plane is a bad idea, in a critical situation like this, I'd rather a couple of folks on the plane had firearms or weapons of some sort. At the very least the pilots, and maybe some of the other staff.
