OK...now that's funny.
...that Obama can stop this with a simple phone call. And he can make sure it doesn't happen again with a stroke of his E.O. Pen.
No one is crying foul. But don't believe that Google has heard the cries of the long suffering public and decided to rescue them.
Freezing flash ads works in their favor.
I think you may be overlooking one thing...eSOX or equivalent policies.
Company assets have to be partitioned. You can't have people that are not trained and/or not accountable for data/hardware messing with stuff. Auditors for the Government and various Standards organizations (ISO this or that) look for these things. For instance, as an "Administrator" for our Manufacturing software, I can change master controls and permissions. But I cannot actually use the software to do anything like create POs, print Invoices, etc. and that is it should be.
I am also in the approval chain for granting access to shares...but I ultimately do not have access to any of the shares (except mine). What's in them is none of my business and outside the scope of my duties, so eSOX and similar policies say I should be locked out.
If you have someone who can do anything they want to anything they want, you are setting yourself up for a disaster.
Yep. No one should be dancing for joy.
This wasn't done out of the goodness of Google's heart. They are merely taking down the competition.
Is that any more ridiculous than suggesting that the universe is a computer simulation?
It's in my back yard and shoots water into the sky 24/7
I also have a supplemental system that does it twice a week over a much larger area.
Probably while at a Starbucks. Public email on a public wifi.
The very fact that an email originates from the SoS means that it is at least potentially classified.
It is HER dutyto mark it as such if it contains sensitive information. Are you saying that she is too stupid to recognize classified information? So if some source tells her that Iran will be attacked at X hours, she can send that inform over plain email because, "it wasn't marked classified"?
Did anyone ever think it was anything other than Theater?
Really? You thought that???
How would conceal a 4 foot long, 4 inch wide blade?
The measure of "reasonable enough" is whether the sales can support the fixed costs required to maintain the line and related infrastructure. That includes part sales, maintenance, refurbishment, etc. These things aren't like toasters.
Only Boeing knows how long the 747 will continue to be manufactured. And they certainly know better than some hack from the UE who has a hard on for Airbus.
Sales in the last 10 years:
747 - 123
A380 - 195
While not the leader I'm not sure you can call that "on the way out".
