But that brings up a question. Does Sound Blaster's bottom line depends 99% on people who do not know what they are doing buying sounds cards just because? Or are 99% of their customers professionals/audiophiles, people with an actual use for their product?
So Programming is ripe with injustice because there are only jobs for people really good at programming, and a good attitude, kiss assing, and some charisma is not a substitute?
OK, but it does not matter how advanced your tools are programming is about ADVANCED algorithmic knowledge. to build programs worth having you NEED years and years and years of training and a vast store of knowledge. Yes, it is worth creating VB and similar language for amateurs to have a little fun with but Microsoft is never going to hire minimum wage people just out of highschool to program Windows 20 with some drag and drop shit programming language.
And wait for the Captain Duck tutorial video series.
This is not new or unique. The PC is full of games that have ridiculously bad console-to-PC ports; With shitty controls, poor graphics, bad performance, and with absolutely no configurability.
Well when you cannot poach employees, you need to get to them first.
"More leisure time for Foxconn Beings" - Fixed that for you.
That is not taking into consideration the cost of materials. Which will be incredibly high as these machines are not building iphones out of iron and oil they are putting CPUs into slots, and screwing together cases. They are probably replacing a $2 a device worker with a $1 a device machine.
You could base the monument off of Flashpoint's alternative universe superman, who was imprisoned in a bunker far away from the sun for his entire life (where he sickened and weakened).
Kids starves to death -> build a monument where you feature him as superman. There must be some crazy logic going on to come to that course of action.
Why eve watch it. I watch movies all the time and still have substantial trouble figure out what genre to store it in. Just go to wikipedia or imdb where groups of people collaborate to figure out which genre to label it as.
Hell I can smell a bluray. Optical storage has a far bigger and more unique odor than a usb stick.
Who says that the free stuff "utopia" is not the terrible future.
Well pushing tech, tech, tech to everybody and their grandmother does create a glut of workers, but it does not necessarily get you any more truly competent workers (or get you any more people interested in anything other than the salary). In fact the glut of incompetence might actually ruin a few ones with potential.
Yes, absolutely. But at the same time no one ever said that Science was a democracy. Just because 97% of scientists believe that the current model is correct does not really give any more credence to it than is only 3% believed it. The majority of people believe that there is a god, that doesn't mean that the model saying that "god created the universe" is the most likely to be correct one (made even more so since it has been the accepted one for tens of thousands of years). I guess at the end of the day scientific fact/knowledge is an individual pursuit. The data and the methods are there for anyone to use and you cannot just survey and go with the percentage over 50%.
