Fucking academics who have never left a schoolground and gone to a construction site.
Plastic fibers are coming from the air.... as opposed to leaching off from those miles and miles of PVC conduit water has to run through before getting to your tap.
They keep statistics for how much ROI they get on different platforms.
No they don't. They can and they should, but they don't. Market research is something my wife does - and at a very high level in Fortune 500 companies - is something companies are spending less and less on each year. They think they can replace a trained researcher with survey monkey in the hands of a marketing graduate (market research != marketing kind of like a statistician is not an engineer). The attitude among companies is that market research is a waste of money and they can just guess if an ad is "good" or "bad" and go with their gut feeling - which is often completely wrong due to any number of biases. They generate statistics and studies that they don't understand or don't know how to apply. Etc. So yes you are right that they keep statistics. But they often have no idea what those statistics actually mean. You would be shocked at the stuff I've heard country and regional level marketing people say - and I only know what I know about research by "osmosis".
Who cares if advertising people spend money on fake info?
Because it's money that could be spent elsewhere. Like compensation for employees, or new machinery, or bigger offices, etc. Or it could not be spent at all. Who do you think pays for this? You do. You seem perfectly happy paying more for goods and services so that companies can throw your money away. Well done, consumer.
I can only conclude you do not know what you are talking about at all when it comes to actually selling bitcoin for traditional currency.
I can conclude that no one is "actually selling bitcoin for traditional currency" - hence the geometric increase in price. Buyers far outweigh sellers. For now.
If you think it's possible to only gain in the stock market, then you certainly don't know what you are doing.
Of course not. However it is also possible to offload the risk onto someone else. The problem is not the stock market, it's the trader's own greed.
They even publish a list of approved modems.
Only way to make the legit approved list is if they also contain officially backdoored hard/firmware?
This difference explains much.
Only in your mind. You must be a pretty terrible scientist. You assigned me the identity of beancounter. Next you use this assignment to explain your superiority. Congrats with your hypothesis - except of course if your first assumption is false, everything that follows is also false. I am no beancounter. I also am a scientist. But you see intelligent people enjoy educating themselves across many fields. I'll let you work out what your aversion to learning for yourself says about you.
The following statement is not true. The previous statement is true.
