Its a shame they are so evil.
Use Palm Oil (a major contributor of deforestation )
Buying up Land and water wells in developing countries, then selling their own water back to them.

Nestle care about people ? I think not.

Comment Re:a lot of people who want to run Linux on a Mac? (Score 1) 134

I've done it - I have a Mac Mini which i just found to be unreliable as shit . I purchased it to try out some of the Mac Music / Audio software. After finding it a pain in the ass to use and half of my hardware being incompatible (PC keyboard, Midi Interface , External USB Audio ) I gave up and started using it as a Plex Media server. It ran ok for a while but after a few incremental updates it just became unstable.

So I was - fuck this for a laugh - wiped it and installed Linux and Kodi - and now its useful again.

Go figure . MacOS isnt what its cracked up to be for my use case ,and the hardware compatibility is a complete joke unless you buy into the whole ecosystem, fuck that.

Comment Same for small plane crashes (Score 1) 270

The media are all over small plane crashes much the same way, giving a highly distorted view of just how safe aviation is. Aviation organizations like AOPA have started to get on the media's case about this.

If they reported car crashes with the same enthusiasm the "news" would be nothing but car crashes.

Comment Security through obscurity (Score 1) 95

It's radio. Anybody in the vicinity can listen in all they like. Back in the bad old days this was Industry Canada's position, that cellphones were not private and there was nothing anybody could do about it.

Unlike AMPS, the communications are digital. So what. If you are sufficiently determined you can decode the data you have captured.

Comment Set up a dummy account (Score 1) 348

If push came to shove I'd set up dummy Facebook and Twitter accounts and let CBP see them. No good way to tell which of the several hundred Laura Hallidays on Facebook is me. Post some pictures of cats, a few likes, done.

I already engage in some self-censorship. There are a few CDs (mainly Russian and Israeli acts) I leave at home when I cross the border.

Submission + - Which Programming Language Can Make You Earn More Money As a Programmer (tweakyourbiz.com)

Numan Young writes: It is common practice among programmers to choose a programming language that has the highest profitability. The whole topic of selecting a programming language based on money is debatable, and that’s why we will recommend you to read an interesting article by Michael Byrne where the author advocates on not picking a programming language based only on the salary or profitability.
