Comment: If you like to code... (Score 1) 548

Switch jobs every 3-5 years. VC spread their money over lots of companies. You should do like wise. Falling in love with a company is great but in the the end your a resource to be extracted and disposed of for people with "business acumen". You need to take the same attitude and and make sure the company is in fact giving you your due. Get your equity and get out. If the company is actually showing promise in 3 to 5 year maybe stay but do not ever think the companies success hinges on you being there. It does not. The business end of the business will do everything they can to make sure that is not the case even if it is. Good luck

Because I buy no contract phones that are GSM I am part of the only real competitive network in North America. ATT vs T-Mobile. ATT's 3 billion contribution to my plan now means I pay $50 (1st line) + $30(2nd line) + $10(3rd) all with data, text and talk. Previously 2 lines cost me $175 under contract. Thank you ATT.

The problem is not the Kindle. Publishers (particularly scholarly publishers ) have not adopted epub format. PDFs do not reflow to screen size therefore they will NEVER be useful in devices of variable screen sizing. Sorry. There is no reason you should not be able to get you publications in a format that would be more convenient to read on any eReader. Check put and down load the epub version of the article. I wish had the good sense to provide an epub versions but they are too far behind the times.
