Speaking as someone who overuses sarcasm, I've found that no matter how clear *I* think I am being, others do not always see it that way.
That, in a nutshell, is the AI issue. People don't even get it right so how can 'people' write a program to get it right since we can't actually devise a test for sarcasm.
If I only had a brain, it would be hurting right now from overuse.
No it isn't. He's just being sarcastic
No words for this idiocy.
I dunno. Maybe the PTO should just do it.
Can I still say that?
Have you actually tried using a Mac productively?
I have a game developer friend who likes the Apple laptops for durability and weight and brings his to meetings for demos but he absolutely hates the keyboard and shortcuts and uses a desktop windows box at home for serious dev efforts.
2. Why would a company care about someone who wasn't successful as CEO running another company?
Probably for the same reason NFL teams hire failed head coaches such as Bill Belichik.
The whole effort seems pointless to me. Ever hear of a PO box?
1. Most people without street addresses don't actually live near a post office.
2. More importantly, FedEx and UPS can't deliver to PO boxes and that means no money in their pocket.
Getting a bigger credit limit only to use it for larger payments just means you cost them more.
I can't figure out why you'd cost them more. Please clarify.
It's mostly an opportunity cost kind of thing. With every credit card I've ever had you pay no interest as long as you pay off the balance in full by the payment date. This means that, if you always pay off the balance, the bank is effectively giving you an interest free loan from the time you make the purchase until the time you make the payment. The bank could invest that money they loaned you in just about any other investment and make more than 0% return on it. Giving you a bigger credit limit just means they'd be allowing you to take an even bigger interest free loan.
That's the way the credit card companies make money off of _you_.
They also make money from a percentage (or sometimes fixed) cost of everything you buy. So if you use a credit card daily and pay off $800-1000 every month, the credit card company makes money on that account. They need to make at least enough money each month one way or the other to justify managing the costs of dealing with your account.
... giving you the feeling that your government cares and reacted to 9/11 and other threats is.
If you're in a democracy, get the cause-effect correct. It's all your fellow citizens who wanted the guvmint to "do something" even tho going shopping was probably the best thing to do, but Bush could have been more eloquent, perhaps saying something about all we have to fear is fear itself.
TSA is the fear itself.
They expect you to remember WXY Corp when you're about to buy a widget or service they offer. Which is why they want their ads to be so obnoxious, so you will remember.
It works for The Donald.
What we need are rule in place that if you are applying for H1B Visa workers, you have to prove you have done qualified job search for the positions and found NO workers to fill them.
The problem is that one of the "qualifications" for being an employee is called "salary" and businesses don't like to pay high salaries. To employees. They don't seem to have a problem paying CEOs.
"Hi Barbie, what should we do today?"
Same thing we do every day kiddo, try to take over the world!
That's just technogeek paranoia. There's no money to be made in James Bond-type conspiracies.
Barbie says. "Let's go shopping. I need a new outfit."
if a girl asks if she's pretty, Barbie will respond, "Yes. And you're smart, too."
So yeah, it's programmed to lie.
Yes, just like humans. It's designed to be your friend.
