I work in Sunnyvale where LinkedIn is putting up 3 very large, multi-story buildings for their new galactic headquarters. As I pass by them, I've wondered how they would possibly fill those buildings. Now I know. They're actually putting up their version of a data storage center, similar to the one NSA has built in Utah. They need room for the disk farms that store all these emails they've captured from their users.
I seem to remember that was coming to a store near you several years ago. Sensors embedded in the aisles would trigger ads to be played on the monitor as the cart came into range. At the time, I remember thinking what a shame it would be if the monitor got cracked as I throwing a can of beans into the cart. In any case, I've never seen these actually in use.
The goggles! They do nothing!
You realize that the rockets and the moon landers were built with government, i.e., NASA, money, don't you? Do you think Rockwell, Boeing, North American, Grumman, or the myriad other contractors would have built the things they did without the fire hose of money coming from Kennedy's space program? There certainly were things built that had other, commercial use that might have been funded and built anyway, maybe, but most of that technology had a single purpose and probably would never have be funded internally.
Welcome to the magical world of government contract accounting and a little accounting term we like to call overhead.

We caught wind of this by collecting phone metadata and prevented it from ever happening.
Prove we didn't.
We are neither safer nor more at risk with these machines gone. As long as we're limited to 1-1/2oz shampoo bottles, we know TSA is on the job.
When my company was bought, the parent company, who uses Notes, put us on Notes. Two years later, we're still fixing issues with the migration. Nobody likes this POS and that includes people in the parent company who've been using it for years.
And Mythbusters has taken to either blowing shit up or shooting guns at something almost every single episode. Hardly the stuff of inspiration.
Just a moment...just a moment...I've just picked up a fault in the AE-35 ammonia distribution unit. It's going to go a hundred percent failure within 72 hours.
Wish I had mod points. You hit the nail right on the head.
you can now go in style!
Like everything else down under, these bacteria coulf kill with big, nasty teeth, poisonous spines, and deadly venom.
Or, as we like to call it, the B ark. Funny how most of the enlistees are telephone sanitizers, hair dressers, and public relations people.
Look at the money they paid Lebron James right out of high school. No need to go to Duke or Kentucky.
Absurd? You bet, but the the analogy is the same. Those who have the talent, motivation, and contacts to start a business without college are out there past the 6 sigma point on the curve just as athletes like James are. For the vast majority, however, going to college to learn your trade and, even more important, learn how to learn is the best path to a successful career.
