The principle here is 'be selective about who you listen to'.

Sometimes just listening to the client is the quickest way to get things done, instead of listening to the other programmers. In other words, just find out what the code is supposed to actually do, rather than how it's supposed to do it.

Could you imagine any 12 current actors trying to pull off 12 Angry Men?

Kevin Spacey, Al Pacino, Don Cheadle, Jonathan Pryce, Robert Downey Jr, Harvey Keitel, Vincent Cassel, Jack Nicholson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington, Sean Penn,

Aside from people who'd actually get cast in such a movie nowadays, like Steve Buscemi, Paul Giamatti, Christopher Walken, John Malkovich, Tom Hanks...

Still no shortage of great actors.

Citigroup's THANKYOU trademark only protects them from other companies operating in the same market sector using the protected mark.

They were able to get the trademark because banks saying THANKS are so rare. For example, they would not have been able to take out a trademark on the phrase F***YOU because that's so common in the banking sector.

PC keyboards (keyboards attached to PCs) have been abandoned for cameras (selfie-stick attachments) which double as games consoles and phones.

People don't type about where they are or what they are doing. They just take photos of themselves and post them. Their friends' replies are emotes enacted by illustrations of kittens.

Facebook are being 100% perceptive about where this is headed.
