I can honestly say that in all my 41 years, I've never, ever mentioned that I'm gay while ordering fries.
I don't care who's dick you suck as long as it is not mine.
Ah, and here we have it, the petty reason why you are bandying about a lot of rhetoric like perverted and unnatural. Don't flatter yourself pal, just because you happen to have a penis, doesn't mean homosexual men are lusting after you. With about 3.5 billion men in the world, chances are that you aren't that overwhelmingly attractive. Even if you were God's sexual gift to Earth, I have been with my man in a committed relationship for thirteen years now, so your penis doesn't even come in the picture.
Automation will free us up to do things we'd rather do.
My my, what positivity. Automation will label those out of a job as just another unnecessary mouth to feed.
A lack of tech knowledge is therefore pretty unforgivable
Have you ever seen a CEO (or other executive) do something themselves that isn't a braindead easy and canned procedure on a computer? Any time it requires a modicum of application knowledge and a smidge of creativity, they come running to their underlings to delegate the task.
This is also typical:
[T]he survey of 436 global business leaders finds that only 23% are confident their organizations have the knowledge and skills to succeed in the digital aspects of their business.
The organisation as a whole probably has enough knowledge present to adequately cope with digital demands, but this knowledge is never tapped, because most of it isn't formalised in a certificate or diploma, so it doesn't officially exist. Therefore the employees are digital peasants and the company is doomed.
They leader ship of al queda was just as well known and identified by other nation states.
Being identified and recognized are two different things in this context. Osama may well have been identified by practically anyone and their dog as the leader within Al Qaida. But being identified as a leader of something doesn't mean that the thing that is been led is also recognized.
When it comes to politics and nation states, being recognized by the international community means to be accepted as a legitimate entity. A recognized state is sovereign and its leader considered the head of state. Osama bin Laden's band of extremists were neither sovereign nor was Osama bin Laden recognized as a head of state.
Good, now they can focus on getting me more space for less cash.
^^Absolutely this. SSD's have proven themselves to be reliable enough and plenty fast, but they are so anemic in size in relation to price that they are realistically only interesting to use as a system disk.
What about us poor Windows USERS?
Well, you could always switch and be a lab rat with us...
