Comment Exact same boat. (Score 1) 283

I have a Nexus 7 2012. It's only good as an ereader right now. Even the Kindle app struggles. I did some window shopping at Best Buy recently and the Amazon Kindle HD tablets looked very nice. Good looking screen, supposedly it will work well with the Kindle app and Prime video. Does anyone know if Google apps like Youtube are able to be installed on them? If it can't do basic Google apps then the purchase is a non-starter.

I'd be inclined to see whether his various business ventures have exhibited this sort of hiring policy; or whether he's a "Buy American!" sort of guy when looking for votes; and a buy Mexican sort of guy when looking for labor...

Why does it matter? Don't hate the player, hate the game. It doesn't bother me if Trump as a businessman engaged in standard business practices. He's now saying the game sucks and needs to be changed. Good for him. Booo to people who think supposed hypocrisy is the greatest sin imaginable and should prevent us from fixing errors.

The company may have been founded in a garage, but it didn't stay there. What was HP like when it got out of garage? Did HP really have a reputation for people dressing like slobs? I'd suspect that people generally dressed ok and didn't need to be told how to dress for work.

Background checks and insurance?

The "wild west" days of ridesharing services may be coming to an end. The governor of Massachusetts has proposed a bill that would regulate Uber, Lyft, and their rivals in the state. Among the new rules: ridesharing services would have to run background checks on their drivers and keep a roster of active drivers; vehicles would need to have some external marker indicating that they're a ridesharing car; and drivers would need to hold at $1 million worth of insurance when transporting passengers.

Going the speed of light is bad for your age.
