Wow -- Apple finally has a way to interface conveniently with camera photos on an SD Card?? Welcome to the year 2005, folks.

I'm not sure I'd call this convenient. Wouldn't "conveniently" really mean not having to buy a separate adapter, and having an SD card slot right in the device itself?

Annnd this is exactly what mod points are NOT for. They are not "I agree with you" tokens.

"That's just like, your opinion, man."

Seriously, I'll use my mod points however the fuck I like, Mr Mod Point Policeman.

My, how this site has changed.

Believe it or not, there actually used to be an automated meta-moderation system that checked to make sure you were using your mod points in the appropriate way. The Slashdot FAQs still talk about it, but I haven't seen it in a while.

Anyone know why it left or if it is still happening?

You mentioned free software being license free, but what about Apple now that their OS and their office suite is free? I'm not familiar with Apple support contracts, so maybe there is more to it.

How will things play out now that Microsoft is the only one charging for OS and office suites? I'm sure they can hold on for quite a while, but the landscape is pretty interesting right now.

Finance, IT... something that is needed in at least some small part in every company. Every company needs someone to keep the books. As companies get bigger, every company needs some bit of IT.

Every company needs management as well, but those type of jobs seem to be less stable. It is more difficult to "fire / reorganize away" a doer than a manager in an organization.

If you get into something more specific like Mechanical Engineer, your options begin to be more limited (less jobs in smaller cities)... but your pay goes way up!
