Really there ought to be a college alternative to computer science...perhaps a 2 year computer programming vocational degree. No need for a college degree where half the courses have nothing to do with CS for people that just want to code and not be computer scientists.

that's actually fraud. some law firm should pick up on that and sue. probably millions in these charges across their customer base.

Micro Center recently told my mom when she bought a new computer that her existing 3 yr anti-virus service that she paid some stupid amount for won't transfer to her new computer (same OS) and that she needed to buy a new 3 yr license. Of course it installed and activated in a few minutes on her new computer later that day. So fraudulent.

Comcast offered a $50 cash card if we signed up for internet service with them. We signed up in May, and the card never came. We called and they denied that they ever offered the card. A few more calls later, they agreed that they offered it and said they would send it. It never came. Last month, five months, a final call was made and the card arrived.

Clearly they have a strategy of screwing customers, either through intentional scripting or extreme negligence.

Exactly. It's missing most of the features that a liberal healthcare act would have. No one outside of the USA would view it as liberal.

It's missing:
single payer
universal healthcare
free healthcare
etc...

It keeps:
privatization of healthcare
insurance providers market
huge medical settlements
very minimal to non-existent penalties for not getting healthcare

Interesting. The Obamacare of X analogy is great. Well, except that Obamacare is a conservative approach to healthcare, that only gets portrayed as liberal because Obama is pushing it. No one cared when Romney rolled out Romneycare in his own state.
