We get it. You think it's a better idea to do this with software. That's fine and there are no shortage of such programs.
But what about when I'm playing a game in full screen? (as mentioned in the article). What if the monitor's gone to sleep? What if I'm listening to music with the monitor off?
Just because there's another way to do this doesn't mean this do-hickey isn't useful.
I know all too well how contracting works. I'm an independent contractor and I always do what my promise. None of your points, in any way, is a mitigating circumstance for Oracle.
I would agree with you but from TFA:
Oregon had an ambitious goal: to create a place where anyone, from Medicaid recipients and small-business owners to people in the individual market, could go to shop for insurance. "In hindsight — which is always wonderful — we made decisions that made our system much more complicated to build," Baxter says.

What are they supposed to do - disallow any company with executives that happened to have attended school with the Obamas from doing govt work?

'If you take a cubic foot of that soil you can basically get two beer glasses-worth of water out it'
I think that's pretty much an international standard, right?
God damnit! I wasted precious lunchtime trying to figure out WTF this was all about and in the end, I'm still not sure. I should have just gone to Zombocom where at least I can get positive re-enforcement in a nice soothing voice while I browsed the rest of
