codeusirae writes: Here's the solution. Ready?

1. Keep the front page and the info pages the same. Don't change the look and feel.

2. Rip out the entire back-end.

3. Write a simple form that allows an applicant to enter all of their relevant information — the same information that would be required to fill out a paper insurance application.

4. When the user completes the form, display a screen letting them know that they've successfully applied for healthcare through the exchange and that they will be receiving forms in the mail in short order.

5. Write a simple back-end that transmits the form to the releavant insurers for the market. This could be as simple as a print-and-mail, emailing a pdf, or if we have another day or so, a queue of xml docs that each insurer can pull through a RESTful api.

And we're done.

They wouldn't have to leave the WTO, just remove yourself from the treaty then sign and ratify it again with a signing statement that negates the problem.

The problem is that the US is not government by one federal government. The states have sovereign authority in these matters and the US federal government has no power to act over top of them. Simply put, a signing statement to this effect should have been there to begin with. Someone obviously didn't understand the consequences, the WTO court doesn't understand the US political jurisdiction, so it simply needs fixed.

The cloud guys (Amazon, Microsoft, VMware, others) employ the top talent in the world to work on this around the clock and will never stop.

Pure nonsense. All the heavy lifting in this space is done by software/hardware vendors and contractors specializing in datacenter design, AC,HVAC..etc. otherwise you don't need much talent... datacenters are full of glorified operators.

Company X selling widgets (lets say golf clubs) will just buy machines, and employ people to run the data center as efficiently as possible.

This is counterproductive. If your selling widgets just put up a storefront on Amazon and be done with it. No need to run *ANYTHING*. That's what makes "the cloud" worth doing.

Peddling virtual SQL servers and virtual machines does NOT make life easier if you assume the primary "IT" cost center is management of software environment rather than physical system.

How far do you think they will go in terms of maxing out the power efficiency of their data center to name just one metric on which individual data centers simply cannot compete.

Given cost/power requirements per transistor in modern COTS what percentage of organizations are big enough anymore to have this problem?

How do they even build the expertise in that?

Hire an AC/HVAC contractor like any of the datacenters would.

How can they afford to revamp that when progress renders their once-awesome data center obsolete in just 5 years or so?

Given the Azure price sheet my guess they can afford it plenty. Lets not forget equipment depreciation is also tax deductible.

Correct. And that's one of the other sources of cost efficiency for the cloud guys. Their data centers are humongously vast arrays of machines managed by very few humans.

If you get an Azure VM it is the same as any Windows or Linux computer you must manage and maintain the software you install on it including in most cases patching and rebooting of the OS. You don't get any software management savings by going virtual.

Spikes can happen when you don't expect them. Hardware purchases don't happen automatically as your traffic spikes. 'Elastic' can do that.

This is as silly as the Amazon example above. If you are that big you need to worry about "traffic" then it makes a lot of sense to hire an Akami and have them deal with bandwidth. Using Azure when you should be using a CDN is a costly mistake.

It's actually weird that you question these concepts and disparagingly call them memes.

This industry is full of lemmings who elect not to use their brains. I would love to see actual evidence or study by a disinterested third party where the "elastic" selling point is actually useful outside of a non-trivial minority.

A wait-and-see approach is certainly warranted.

Given the price list you got the "wait" part right.

Questions regarding portability, and trust issues with the providers are warranted.

Questioning the cost-effectiveness of cloud vs. on-premise is a little silly IMO

We're not a huge shop we have about 50 people and a few racks of servers. Most of those servers spend most of their time sending HLT instructions to the CPU. It costs us very little to maintain the physical hardware we have considering we always buy last years gear dirt cheap.

You can't seriously expect me to look at that price chart and look at what we have in house and conclude outsourcing it all to "the cloud" is cheaper. We can buy a new rack of shit every month with the money we would have to fork out in fees to Azure.

I'm sure the underlying philosophy is correct where central management of large numbers of systems can theoretically provide certain cost benefits but it sure as heck is not being reflected in any of the price lists I've seen.

Not all games lend themselves easily to a demo. Also the current trope is that demos actually cost sales and that that money is better spent on marketing. I don't really follow that kind of reasoning myself but suffice to say downloadable playable demos are hugely unpopular with AAA studios and devs for whatever reason.
Demos take time and money to create. And they need to run on your potential buyer's machine without any issue. I can remember a couple of demos in the 90ies which I couldn't get to run yet the game ran perfectly. Also the time and resources spent building a demo can be used to start on that expansion/DLC and get all the things into your game that you had to triage out. If I were a dev that's what I'd rather do.

From a customer's point of view I can't say I'm too interested in demos either. I wait for the reviews to come in(RPS and John Bain mainly), watch a couple of YT videos or simply unthinkingly pick the game up on some Steam sale for a few quid and play it whenever.

That being said, I do think this is a government regulation type thing in at minimum, they should be required to clearly disclaim any possibility of being a substitute for the real thing.

Imagine you were at a pool or lake and there was a flotation device hanging on a pole near by that said life saving emergency device. Now suppose you fell in and injured yourself to the point that keeping your head above water was very difficult and someone grabbed that device and tossed it to you. Now suppose when you grab it it falls apart and doesn't have the buoyancy you would expect from a real life saver flotation device that is US coastguard approved because it was a cheap replica sold to someone to add to the ambiance of the location. Now suppose that person thinks you will be ok holding onto the flotation device when he see you grab it and immediately runs to get someone to help.

Caveat emptor could mean a death sentence if someone thinks you or they will be safe and you are not. An app like this or even a device like this must make it clear that it is not the real thing or a comparable substitute for the real thing. If that is present and the buyer decides to give it a try, it is buyer beware. If it isn't available and readily known, then it is misleading, dangerous, and possibility fraudulent. And I think that these apps will end up being removed by lawsuits over wrongful death, aggravated injuries or something before any criminal charges will be filed. When a widow and their children are crying in court stating how the deceased thought it was just as good because of the marketing and the defense is claiming the guy should have looked into what he was purchasing better or he should have read the EULA which has the disclaimer hidden in it, its going to be hard to see how this ends in the app maker's favor.
