Comment Re: So MS is basically bailing on the phone busine (Score 0) 158

Yes, I am on occasion forced to use MS garbage and I just laugh my ass off every time I do. It's so insanely primitive compared to it's competitors, and buggy as hell to boot. The sheer # of bugs I uncover after just 5 minutes of Windows use is fucking hilarious. Don't even get me started on the shitfest that is Azure, Amazon doesn't even give 2 shits about Azure because it is such a buggy, unreliable mess. Randomly rebooting my web service? Pure brilliance MS, how did you know I wanted that "feature".

C# is also a muddled mess of a programming language, grow up and use a real language that is supported by open standards and doesn't constantly contradict itself.

Comment So MS is basically bailing on the phone business? (Score 3, Interesting) 158

What a shock, MS is bailing on the phone business, i.e. an industry where their bully monopolistic practices were useless and they had to rely on their shitty, shitty code, interface, and business practices to compete with competitors who actually know how to make software that isn't a steaming pile of shit. Shocking! But of course, MS won't reverse course on developing shitty bug-ridden software, they have trademarks to protect after all.

Turns out that in Europe, they have emission laws on cars that requires them to be tigher than Americas, BUT, once past testing, they open it wide up and pollute like they are China. That is why when you look at the CO2 maps from OCO-2, you realize that Europe is actually emitting more than America does.
Basically, nations are cheating when they can.

Most Companies pay their CEOs with stock, which the CEO works hard to get its price way up, typically by cheating.
However, if they would pay their CEOs with none publicly traded stock, along with regular salary, then CEOs have a STRONG incentive to get decent dividends rather than focus on the stock price.

Comment Re:The Theater Experience (Score 1) 328

Yeah, I think Cameron has a case of rose-colored glasses on how great the theater going experience supposedly is. But maybe that's what theaters are like in Hollywood. That said, nine times out of ten, I do enjoy going, it's the one time out of ten that really tanks it, then there's the cost.

I really think offering something that allows families and groups of friends to watch from home is more likely to help save the theater going experience than hurt it, provided it's not punitively priced.
