Actually, yes. Here's how to wire it for the Mac:
Nevermind IMEI blacklists and such
And yes, such a rule is ripe for abuse, and so is probably not a good idea in general.
I agree that software needs more focus, though it's harder to paint a quick picture in people's minds unless you say something like "make more apps."
I was actually very pleased that he used the example of firefighters downloading building plans on their way to a fire on their "PDA", since that's an app I actually built a few years ago (and current client
Focus depends on ease and effectiveness of narrative. If you can't get a hit in 10 seconds, it won't give the punch.
There's two opposing groups to reckon with here: the employees and the shareholders. The latter wants the highest profit.
So as a "good" corporate manager, which group are you kind to? The only real answer for the shareholder side is
Or you can sway the balance to treating your employees better for other than profit motives
It's about the shareholders, not the managers.
And this is how we get to that scene in Wall-E as he's leaving Earth.
Google karma points are are 1/5th the cost in Kenya and India, but Indian workers come back as
Having just finished a non-trivial project using Java EE 6, I'm very pleasantly surprised at how far things have progressed in the Java world.
* Glassfish (app server)
* JPA 2 (EclipseLink)
* JSF 2 (Mojarra)
* EJB 3.1
* PrimeFaces (excellent JSF toolkit)
* Selenium/JUnit/Maven, etc.
* Java 6+
Java EE 6 completes the job started in Java EE 5, which is essentially
Standard Java EE is now very robust, speeds development, assures safety, and aids test-driven development.
I also think this particular stack will hang around for a good number of years, if not decades. They finally got it right.
The RULAV is a hexagonal capsule, 7.5 feet (2.3 meters) high, atop a tripod 7.5 feet (2.3 meters) high, for an overall height of about 15 feet (4.6 meters). It is about 6.5 feet (2 meters) across at its widest point. The frame is welded mild steel with riveted aluminum siding. It contains nearly 800 LEDs forming dozens of numeric displays spread across 14 control panels, each with an acrylic face laser-cut and etched with labels such as "Lunar Distance" and "Hydraulic Pressure". The pilot controls the rocket using a joystick and panels full of working switches, knobs and buttons. Underneath the capsule are three "thrusters" that shoot plumes of water and compressed air under the control of the pilot's joystick, simulating real positioning thrusters. Takeoff and docking sequences are augmented by a paint-shaker that simulates the vibration of a rocket engine. Sound effects complete the illusion, with a powered subwoofer that gives the rocket a satisfying rumble.
Behind the scenes, rocket operations are controlled by three Atmega328 microprocessors on custom-fabricated printed circuit boards, running a small operating system, RULOS, that we built just for this project. The processors communicate using an in-rocket TWI network and will eventually talk back to the house over a serial port. A trench running from the house to the rocket carries 12VDC power for the lighting and electronics, water for the thrusters, compressed air, and several data signals."

I just get offended by people saying 'M$' because it paints the Linux community as a bunch of pimply-faced teenage dorks that think that calling Microsoft 'M$' is like the greatest insult in the world. I use Linux at work. It's a great developer platform. I use it t home for my server. Great at that, too. Just have a windows box for games. So you can call me a Linux geek... but I hate two things about the linux community:
Those that insult proprietary companies like a kid would
Those that insult others trying to learn Linux (if someone was to say "RTFM" to a newbie in real life, I'd kick him in the nards)
Never ever ever react to a sudden change in the stock market on a long term investment, unless it's something like enron...
The only reason I'd flip to android is that I can write java apps to the android... if you want to write an app to your iPhone, its objective-C, which I know you probably prefer, Barbie, but I'm a java guy
Another advantage of iPhone is maturity. The androids are still level 1.0. I like to wait for the next gen (which is why I have an iPhone 3G, and never had the original iPhone).
As with everyone, I'm surprised you lasted this long. A threat to pay is a last resort, company will fall out from under you if you leave, kind of threat, or a threat to someone you want to quit so you don't have to go through any company policy severance...
If you are looking for a job in the states, let me know. My company always appreciates a good developer, and we do placement jobs if you don't want consulting.
