People finishing school might have fairly poor communication and maths skills, to the point where employers have to give them a lot of extra training.
Sounds like we should fix current high school then. High school's point is supposed to be making people ready for the world.
It's the same reason && is better than "AND" in C syntax derivatives.
Given that C has shorthands like ++, I've always wondered why K&R chose && for logical-and and & for bitwise-and. If it were the other way around, you'd save having to write the second & most of the time since one tends to write far more logical-and expressions than bitwise-and expressions.
If Apple really wants to shake things up, they need to build their own cellular network with 100 GB or 200 GB data caps. Sprint looks like a good candidate to buy in the U.S. given its current financial situation.
Please, not Sprint. I tried them briefly in San Francisco. Standing on Market Street, I barely got 1 Mbps. I went back to Verizon and got an order of magnitude better.
But what incentive does everyone have to use that fork?
Remaining un-fined and/or un-imprisoned is a pretty good incentive. If you're a tech company and you continue to use the now-illegal encryption without the back-door in your products, you will be fined, daily, until you comply and/or your CEO will be thrown in jail.
Writing software is more fun than working.
