Open source friendly company as most expensive brand out there... I wonder what MS fans will say now?
What they usually say... reboot.
Suddenly I feel like throwing a chair...
20 years ago, Cisco was the world's most-valuable company.
Bombay Company stock is down, too.
This is the kind of anti-competitive behavior that gets companies in trouble and causes regulatory crackdowns. Phone companies that make it hard to switch carriers. domain registrars that make it hard to switch registrars, and banks which make it hard to switch banks have all gotten in trouble for this.
Welcome to American Hustle.. Like most sore winners we strut and take too much for granted - particularly our own citizens. Too bad we lost sight of our core values in the process of our financial dominance and success. American values flourish on a level playing field, in an inclusive meritocracy, but now we're back to royal assholes playing king of the hill. Perhaps dominance is more Sisyphus' crushing refrain. Human nature rears its ugly head in any golden age. Lets start with the obvious : Let's stop tolerating unfair, greedy, scum-baggy, slimy business behavior like its an acceptable cost of playing free market capitalism. Its bullshit, we don't tolerate it from people, why do we let big business off the hook? Corporations don't compete, they dominate and destroy innovation, once they reap its rewards. Screw 'em. Just because your pension can't keep up with inflation, that's no excuse to rationalize accepting their dividends. The Golden Rule is more important than the Gold when you have no prospects for success in a neo-facsist cluster fuck of failure and denial. A free market offers options, choices, and healthy competition. . .
"We buy law. We have money."
More like we try to buy results but can't get any... like the 100 Million that Zuckerberg burned trying to improve urban education in New Jersey. The sad fact is that the billions earned by the 1% won't be any more effective than the trillions the fed prints on behalf of the 100%; in other words money is having an unpredictable, diminishing effect on improving the shortcomings of human politics, society, and institutions .
No matter how much we want money to be the silver bullet for all of our ills, you just can't buy solutions off the shelf.
I think we've already established that moving money in greater and greater heaps is not really changing the reality. We have gradually dug ourselves into the current reality, a bunch of green paper can't really be expected to be the only requirement for swift and enduring solutions to our consequent failures of coexistence.
We can fix sociological problems with a focus on people and our behavior, The Golden Rule may actually carry a great deal more weight than the Gold. What a wonderful exercise in irony for the wealthiest philanthropists in the "richest" nation. Perhaps we'll be richer if we place more value on human beings that don't have a lot of cash, but have a lot of value to offer society.
The approach is based on the fact that the emission of a photon is a quantum process that is always random.
Macroscopically it sure seems random, but the underlying quantum physics show that it is still a deterministic process. Just because we don't have the right instruments to easily observe it doesn't make it have magic properties.
I agree, the song remains the same. Its not random. Its just very, very uncertain. Same as it ever was....
Accumulate posts modded "pedantic," the Slashdot userbase will confer upon you a "Ph.D. in Pedantry."
Does that make your advocates "Pedantophiles?
the machines themselves. they will take over when they self correct.
