Comment crap televisions, anyhow (Score 2) 95

Many of mitsubishi's TVs had horrible electronics. I knew about a year after I bought my modle 52525 that it wasn't going to last more than about 3. Sure enough, within 3 years it was broken and mitsubishi wasn't being proactive about fixing the bad control boards.

Why companies need to save a few bucks on capacitors on a $2000 television will never make sense to me.

I don't understand how the crappy pc manufacturers still haven't learned that just because Apple can do it doesn't mean they can try and make a shitty copy and actually sell it.

They've keep trying.. tablets that flop, ultrabooks that flop, all-in-ones that flop..

Over and over they make shitty copies of apple products, price them the same, and then are bewildered when they don't sell.

Self taught programmers are often extremely weak in the area of algorithms and data structures. They solve problems with the tools they have, but they never had anyone to show them a whole additional set of tools to wrap their minds around. i.e. they don't know what they don't know.

It's extremely rare that I interview someone purely self taught who can pass my interview and get a job offer. Their solutions are usually incredibly simplistic and naive.
