Comment: Ballmer's performance (Score 2) 240

I think that Ballmer is a decent operations guy, but obviously not a tech visionary, nor does he have good taste and an iron fist the way Steve Jobs did. I think that Microsoft was in a very strong position when he took over and that it just isn't that hard to keep Microsoft on its current glide path given a halfway decent operations guy in charge. John Sculley, who is widely viewed to have run Apple into the ground, could almost certainly done just as good of a job running Microsoft as Steve Ballmer. I realize this is speculation, but I think its true.

Okay, I know you're trying to be funny, but let's be serious for a moment: Why shouldn't the EPA try to limit lawsuits? They cost you and me, the taxpayer, a lot of money. It slows down the entire judicial process, and increases the cost of excercising your rights in the judiciary.

yeah, fuck people after all... it cost muney and stuff...

Actually, if you were to check on the matter...

The quake already disabled the plants, the tsunami just gave the final blow.

AND NO, NO AND NO.

THE QUAKE AT THE SITE OF THE PLANT WAS NOT BIGGER THAN WHAT THE PLANT WHAT SUPPOSEDLY BUILD TO SUSTAIN.

The quake was a 9 something at sea, but much much lower at the coast of Japan.

Thank you for proving that you are a complete knuckledragger.
Nuclear already triggered at least 2 non survivable contaminated zone onearth. And the mass casualties will only be seen in 10 to 20 years. (or at least mass thyroid cancer patients).

Plus you are totally ignoring the several workers death by cardiac arrest of cleanup workers or the untraceable illness of the unproperly declared/registered/followed cleanup temp workers.

Pretty sure shortsighted people were spweing the same advice against helicopters when they first start being used.

You have to start somewhere. not everything works perfectly at the first prototype... just look how long it took to get the V22 osprey into active duty. the first prototypes flew in the 60'...

You might have mail.

Working...
