If you're a competent developer, you should avoid companies like this. Bad hours, lots of travel, and substandard pay. Of course, they don't plan on staffing it with competent developers.
If we only had more unions BS like this would not even make it to the install part unless there is a big list of things needed to fire someone / rules in place to make so that the boss needs to show that to use this to fire some takes a lot of paper work.
It's like alot of the BS metrics that just end up making people cheat the system / hurt things in areas that are not tacked.
Unions seem like a good idea for unskilled work, but not for technology workers. I am not interested in any sort of collective bargaining. If I have a device at my desk or software on my laptop that I find onerous, I can (a)disable/delete/destroy it or (b) go work somewhere else. The good thing about software development is that for every programmer worth his salt there are 100 jobs waiting.
"That means that a dedicated WoW player can now fund [...]"
When you say dedicated WoW player you mean Chinese gold farmer?
Not necessarily. I have a WoW account (not active) with over 600k gold in it that I accumulated playing it for 10+ years. I could definitely use that gold to get some Overwatch skins if the account was active. I suspect I'd need to activate the account to transfer the credits though, which is a deal breaker.
I got it for the discounted AppleTV. $105 including 3 months of service for a $149 unit was a no brainer.
The service itself though hasn't been very good. Lots of streaming errors. No single-sign-on. Most of the apps that channels use for on-demand streaming don't have DirecT Now listed as a provider, so you can't use them. The only one that I've found that works is ESPN.
I really just wanted NBC, CBS, ABC, and FOX streaming, but it only has one of those (ABC) that both works and supports on-demand. It's pretty damn disappointing. At the end of the 3 months if it's still the same I am cancelling.
And that doesn't include housing, which can also be $20k a semester.
For that kind of money you could buy a VERY large house off campus.
Only an Apple fan would use the term "legacy" in reference to a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Actually legacy is a good way to put it. The headphone jack dates back to 1878. .
1. Enable Hidden Developer Menu
2. Enable "Disable Caches"
If they were even a little savvy they could have accomplished the same thing on their web server by setting no-cache headers, but whatever.
VMware sent out an email to employees and said "There is $$$ in your http://brightfunds.org/ account. Give it to whatever charity you care about". And the employees do get the tax write-off.
What I learned from this election is that Americans are stupid. I had thought that maybe we were not stupid, but I was wrong. This man is garbage, and he was always garbage, and he will always be garbage, and Americans don't care.
It clearly sounds like an advert. I've never heard of "system76" -- because they're nobody. You've always been able to get a cheap no-name PC with cheap components for less than Apple. This has been true for 15+ years.
The problem is, when you're done, you have a cheap PC with a crappy user experience. We use macOS because it's better than Windows for engineers who develop outside the Windows ecosystem, and it's better than Ubuntu for almost everyone (exceptions apply of course). I would certainly use Ubuntu before I used Windows, but it doesn't hold a candle to macOS for convenience, software availability, and general usability.
If I DID want a PC, I wouldn't get one from them anyway. I'd get a nice sleek high-quality hardware design and then put Ubuntu on it. There are PC manufacturers that make nice hardware these days.
His argument for the riot charge is that she did not fairly (in his view) cover both sides and therefore was not engaged in journalism. You can judge for yourself by watching the video in question.
By that argument, FoxNews is guilty of inciting riots, as is MSNBC. That's not a reasonable standard.
AT&T and big cables does nothing to upgrade their infrastructure until competitors appear, then they stall them through their paid politicians. If their competitors persists, they deploy their subpar upgrades and undercut the pricing of their competitors. If their competitors withdraws from the area, they jack up their pricing and screw over the consumer. If this isn't abuse of monopoly power, I don't know what is.
I don't know about that. Google fiber is technically in "Atlanta", but I live 40 miles north. There will likely NEVER be google fiber where I live, but I get Gigabit AT&T for $70/month. They ran the lines through our entire neighborhood last summer. I am sure it cost a lot to get it enabled, but because they're 20x faster than what I had before (Charter 60 Mbps) they're getting a lot of customers to help them recoup the cost.
Upgrade your MacBook now for 25% less battery life and a slower overall experience!
Maybe for you. I haven't noticed any difference at all. Honestly aside from the shared clipboard between my Mac and my phone (which is very cool) I barely even notice any differences at all.
Edge is kludgy to use. It doesn't share bookmarks with my Mac or my iPad or my Android Phone. The "extension" story is all but nonexistent (there appear to be a total of 13 of them). In return, what does it offer? Performance is about the same, and battery might be a little better according to the benchmarks.
When I am on my Windows 10 gaming machine, I use Chrome exclusively. I don't trust Google at all anymore, but at least I used to. Microsoft has never been worthy of trust.
