Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We will evolve, we will survive and we will spread out into the galaxy. DNA engineering is the future.
It's not about the ad's being "safe" it's about how much you pay them. They have TONS of shady networks that pay the fee because it's ROI effective to do it.
It's a genius business model with almost no costs at all.
Adblock in my experience is roughly 10-15% of all internet traffic. This is based on real stats, impressions go up this much when you get around it.
Conversely for advertisers, the traffic generally is almost worthless & generates very little revenue at all. But the Ad network's don't care because the majority of Ad networks operate on a CPM basis. It's dirty.
Guys are the butt of "jokes" everyday to in the office place. It's not something directed only at women lol.
How can we have a world free from NN, when one of the worlds biggest websites by bandwidth usage, pay's off an ISP for "premium" access to their network.
How about you practice what you preach Netflix, instead of whining when the cost is to much for your shareholders to bear. Pussy's.
People seem to forget, the internet RUNS on advertising money. It's what pay's the "real" bills for servers, staff & redbull's.
IMO, if ads stopped across all internet sites, or the online advertising industry completely collapsed. The internet as we know it, would be gone.
You see, to avoid paying high taxes in the US. Microsoft like Apple, Google etc... create parent companies in foreign countries. To which they pay huge sums of revenue in licensing fees to lower or sometimes completely avoid paying any tax in the US. Ireland specifically up until recently was THE cornerstone for this tax scheme. It's also legal in the US btw.
Microsoft doesn't want to open itself up to tax obligations in the future by allow these types of requests.
Watch the documentary "We're Not Broke" on Netflix, about $2.4 trillion in corporate tax avoidance since 2000-2013. They explain this legal scam & Ireland is front and center in implementing it. Taxes are the reason they are fighting this.
This is what I would buy,
1) I need to tell at a glance time without hitting any buttons. Eg, a watch....
2) It would need it to be curved to fit the dimensions of my wirst
3) It should decide if I should buy or sell a stock.
That is all.
We could pitch other stuff as-well in volcanoes like cars, electronics & other stuff I'm sure. I don't think anyone will complain about a polluted volcano.
I asked everyone in the office about this & they agree with me. I'm right.
Its almost never cheaper in my experience to move into the "cloud". Sure, hosting your static files & images on a CDN (Eg cloud) service that makes sense.
Just buy a managed servers from a good hosting company, they will do all the "work" just like in the cloud & you will reduce you bill easily 50% then using cloud services.
I think you'll find, alot of 20-30yr olds wish they had the stability you have with your family.
You are obviously very out of touch with the WHO & WHY of why people continue to use XP.
1) Not everyone can AFFORD to update their computer, buy a new computer or buy a new copy of windows. Let alone get a Mac...
2) Most of the world is not tech savvy. The idea that you would get them to install Linux is really not practical. People are creatures of habit & that will never change. Look at how many people freaked out when W8 removed the start button.
3) A large % of users are in 2nd & 3rd world countries. The fact they even HAVE a computer & electricity to power it is a BIG deal. You're being very dismissive of how the majority of the world lives. You should travel more.
XP is like an old car... sure it eats 5x the amount of gas, but it gets you from point a to b.
My point is this, the design doesn't make the site the content does (eg Craigslist).
Instead of spending another 6+ months on this new site, how about you spend the time to actually find and create compelling stories that people want to read instead?
You're content really is bad & you know you've been skating by for far to long. Really, the only saving grace of the entire site is the comment section (you know your community...)
You know, spend time on the news site that reports on & investigates on.... news.
For me, It's wasn't the walking, it was lifting things on high shelves at weird angles that hurt the most. You're usually on a stair cart as-well to get the things at the high shelves. So you're going up and down these stairs with heavy things and I saw a lot of people get hurt.
Anyways I get what'cha mean you're prob right.
