They had all the warning signals about a possible future problem, but did not manage to stop him anyway.
If you're expecting it to mean 100% employment for all software developers then no that's not the case, because in every industry there'll be a few percent of incompetents who are just always unemployable no matter how desperate that industry gets.
There will also be competent people working for companies that go bankrupt or the local office gets closed or are for other reasons looking for a new job.
I read somewhere that 1.5-2% unemployment basically means "everyone" is working.
As an example, 1% unemployment means on average people are unemployed approximately 1 month every 10 years
"I flash this image by leveraging root access in the Android operating system to write to the boot block device"
Isn't it usually rooting you want to achieve when you unlock the bootloader?
Or is there already a root exploit available, and this will allow you to not only root a stock image, but instead load custom images?
When you see wind farm tax breaks, do you get upset about wind power generation companies taking advantage of tax laws?
No, because that is the intention of the law.
When companies make deductions for expenses in foreign countries, the intention is not that they create fake expenses in tax heavens that exactly match the profits they make elsewhere.
The intention is this: If they actually produce value in other countries, the profits from that value should be taxed there.
1: An American company deducts a million dollars for having a subsidiary with 10 programmers in Germany = OK
2: Same company deducts 100 million dollars for having a subsidiary in the Cayman Islands that does nothing but send invoices for 100 million dollars = NOT OK
Lock it to the storage compartment with a steel wire. If you also want to prevent it from being opened you can cover it with a steel mesh.
Things like that seem to be popular among some backpackers.
It does not say what kind of luggage you plan to bring, but something like this should cover most scenarios.
on an android tablet...
Isn't that like saying "On a Windows PC all I want to run is Windows"? By that logic there would be almost no Linux PCs since most of them come with Windows pre-installed.
Dual booting Android and a full Linux dist seems like a pretty nice feature on a tablet.
Not so important error: It's the Ecuadorian embassy.
Important error: He is in solitary so he will not disrupt an ongoing investigation for other crimes. Not for anything related to the pirate bay sentence.
I'm not saying it's justified to keep him in solitary for these suspected crimes, but at least get your facts straight.
I still had my mobile connected to the PBX, just no *desk* phone, because that was what suited my usage pattern best.
Also, it always made more sense to have them connected to my dev system than the office system.
It could have been a good geeky exercise to have one of every kind of phone connected to the same number though. (Analog, ISDN, h323, SIP, DECT, mobile and a soft phone on the PC). But i'm not sure my neighbor would like that when all of them starts ringing at once
All I have been given is a mobile phone. However this does not mean PBXs (office phone systems) are not being used.
The mobile phone is still connected to a PBX so I can make free internal calls, call co-workers with shorter 4 digit numbers and have all the other PBX services mentioned in the summary
Of course people who make a lot of calls still need and use hard phones. But where I have worked this has been a minority
This is fairly typical for tech companies in Sweden, i think. It may not be representative for other companies in Sweden or tech companies in other countries though.
There are also two different questions in the summary.
Are office phones coming to an end? No, but usage is declining.
Are office phone systems coming to an end? No, but usage patterns have changed to include mobile phones and IM
* Except when I worked as a developer on a PBX. Then I had around 8 phones on my desk. I still didn't bother to configure any of them for usage as my office phone...
This guy was the definition of team player.
This is insightful. And a very sad insight as well.
He intentionally sacrificed his life so maybe other current and future players would not have to suffer from the same things he has suffered from.
Can you also see a path from the society we have today that will take us to that future?
That part is not so easy for me to see.
Bonus points if that path does not contain lots of people getting killed along the way
But then obviously it is going to be a crap shoot no matter what age they are...
To illustrate with an example:
The equipment costs $6000 but they know that statistically only one in five customers will need it. Then selling it to 5 customers upfront for $1500 will give you a profit of $1500.
Selling the $6000 equipment for $1500 to you while you need it will incur a loss of $4500
