In other words, since the poor guys just have to collect everything. Not their fault."

You have got to be kidding. What idiot MBA thought this idea up.
What practical use case does it solve for the end user that a better antenna on the main router wouldn't solve?
The only reason why you disagree is because you're doing Agile wrongly!
Yeah right. The Agile moonies need a slap. If Agile is so wonderful why don't you walk over to payroll and tell them to adopt it?
For Apple and not for the consumer.
Basically the iPhone is like DSLRs these days. Once you have one there's really no reason to upgrade generationally because they're THAT good. So what can Apple do? Well, sell you something for your iPhone.
So, it solves a problem for Apple. What critical-path problem does it solve for consumers? Well, you don't have to fish your phone from your pocket to see who's calling. That's a bit of an issue for those of us who live where we have winter but it's not a really, really do-or-die feature. So, really it's following the delude-yourself-into-thinking-this-will-make-you-lose-weight item like 99 per cent of the sports equipment out there.
Look, you'll either go running or you won't. You'll either play sports or you won't. It's a bit like saying you'd take up drawing if you had the right pencil.
I've not doubt that Apple will sell a lot of them but really it's a solution in search of a problem for consumers.
* Fire all the technical writers and editors. I'm sure the engineers will have no trouble writing maintenance manuals using complete sentences.
Eliminate inventory controls. Soldiers will steal anything not nailed down.
That man ordered irreplaceable scientific records be taken to the dump, destroying generations of scientific data. He's closed musea in order to build up fake War of 1812 war memorials. He's closed the scientific lakes project that was the programme responsible for identifying acid rain thanks to decades of data.
This man has been utterly destructive to Canada's intellectual property, its scientific pedigree and ability to generate new knowledge. Moreover, he's gagged scientists from discussing their own peer-revirewed data. Instead, political interns get to act as mouthpieces.
Anyone in the scientific or technical community can't help but see how destructive Harper-ism is to Canada's ability to create the next generation of knowledge.
Naturally over the years as Fark's membership has declined from the roaring highs, the owner has needed to look at ways of maximizing revenues. So, the boobies links got removed and put into a separate site etc. The core ethos of the site remained: be funny no matter how offensive you are.
This has been chipped away. Thus the core offering of Fark has been reduced.
It hasn't helped that the moderation has been inconstant, secret and users get banned or worse, shadow banned. This is the expensive way of moderating a web site because ideally you want to nudge the users so that they police themselves. One of the rules of Fark is that discussing moderation is cause for being banned. It hasn't helped that there's been no investment in the backend serving up Fark. No new features have been added, um, ever. I'd not be surprised to learn that they were using their original launch DB.
There has clearly been more of an effort to shape the conversation in Fark in recent years. The result is that the place is less interesting AND there are fewer page views. Discussions used to rocket to infinity twice a week. Discussions nearly never reach four digits these days. I understand why this was done. Many of the women posters on Fark appear to appreciate the intent. I understand. However, as a business offering, the result is that there's a smaller population mix in Fark these days making for a more uniform set of opinions. Thus, shorter discussion threads that are less likely to go to infinity and beyond.
The recent glut of MRAs blighting Fark has also been on Slashdot. I think this is a wave that will burn itself out in a year or so and turn into something else.
Being able to articulate your decisions, why and how things are built is a core competence. You will "pay" for poor documentation. It may never show up as a line item, but it can be costly.
It also needs to be someone's job. Depending upon engineers or the sales guys to generate documentation, courseware and manuals is a fast way to jack up your tech support costs.
First off, there are two Mensa-grade IQs on every bus at rush hour, statistically. Secondly, High IQ and no ability in music will not make you a 'genius' in music. High IQ and no work ethic will mean you'll end up in your underpants, yelling at the TV about the government.
At best, high IQ is useful for certain types pf intellectual problem solving. That's it.
With all the fancy scientists in the world, why can't they just once build a nuclear balm?
