Comment And then there was Kinect (Score 5, Insightful) 86

If that was their only problem, they could have recovered more easily. But they also had:
- $100 higher price to cover the cost of Kinect -- a device few wanted
- the TV stuff and the Snap interface so you could split-screen TV and gaming -- providing a poor TV-watching experience and a poor gaming experience simultaneously
- a giant box that looked like a VCR with a big external power brick
- somewhat worse performance than the PS4 because of the speed of the RAM interface

It's difficult to dig yourself out of a hole that deep.

If it's 'a job' and they cross the line to riot, than their employer has potential liability. They had better have watched their words _very_ carefully.

Conspiracy laws are a bitch. Soros could have been careful, or he could have been overconfident that his side would continue to own the justice department.

We shall see. The rioters phones are now being examined.

Who can afford to travel the nation just to 'protest'? If they were being supported, and they rioted someone not used to jail is in line for big trouble.

People on political payrolls (Hillary's) have already been filmed at multiple 'protests' in multiple cities, appearing to coordinate the violent ones.

HP Enterprise...formerly known as EDS?

They have a 30+ year history of employing C student, recent college graduate, idiots as programmers, former non-technical military as managers. Only skills are in marketing to Fortune 500s and government, using one competent 'prop worker', who will never be seen again, once the contract is signed.

As I said elsewhere on the tread: EDS _taught_ Tata, Infosys etc how this game is gamed.

I've seen some very smart people come out of IIT. I've also seen some flat air thieves from the same place.

My first filter: Shitcan any resumes from Brahmin (high caste), find the lower caste assistants that their parents paid to 'help' them graduate.

Brahmin will always reveal themselves. Lie (if you have to) and tell stories about how important/blue blooded your family are back in Europe. They can't help but brag about their family owning an Indian state. When they do this, discard their apps.

India has the same problem England used to. An upper crust of inbred, worthless fools that just know they are better, but do no actual work.
