It is not case sensitive bob. Just realize it follows a Verb-Noun format. I started using it since pre-release and admit it is extremely powerful. Its creation was a response to the Unix community commenting that there was no shell scripting. The end result is powershell. You can do darn near anything in it. You can even call the .NET framework directly and create a front end GUI that looks like any other application. The limiting factor is how much do you want to study and research the system. I stopped around 4 years ago and forgot so much I can't even use the thing now.

Submission + - I'll pay with Google (

eedwardsjr writes: If you ever wanted to pay just by saying something out loud, then Hands Free is the way to go.

'Google on Wednesday released to the public a new app called Hands Free, which lets people pay for items in stores by simply telling the cashier, "I'll pay with Google."'

Hey, what could go wrong?

0 accidents and 0 tickets for the past 21 years. Defensive driving certificate for several years. My company still wanted to charge almost $1,100 for 6 months to cover 2 vehicles. one is a 2011 and one is a 1997. Told them to pike off and went with a reputable company. I am now paying around $400 for the same coverage. I totally agree. It has nothing to do with payout vs premium. It is more based on pure greed.

Comment 70k for all (Score 1) 482

From the article:

While a campaign is underway in B.C. to raise the minimum wage to 15 dollars, a Seattle company is going to pay its employees at least $70,000 a year.

Basically everyone (even the janitors) will make 70k. I'm sure the CEO will have stock and options in the company to make far more than 70k but his "official" earnings is the same.
