Comment Re:GE is not the enemy (Score 1) 258

You're not accounting for the fact that work these days at the bottom level can be done by Recent College Grads at the entry level pay, with guidance from an employee that has been around for a while. These young employees come in with much more enthusiasm than people that have been around for a while. Presumably the 20% of employees that are getting laid off are older workers that are highly compensated, and for that high compensation they may be able to hire on 2 or 3 RCGs. The RCG Mill of corporations is alive and well.

I used to go to for Cobweb Corner, but they kind of removed that section about 10 years ago, and I stopped visiting the site. As many have mentioned the deals to be had were mediocre, and usually refurb equipment. This was fine in the days that the difference between a refurb and a new computer was significant, but now, they haven't adapted, so therefore they become Ancient History.

John McAfee's Belize Home Burns To Ground 131

Velcroman1 writes "The former island home of anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee burned down Thursday afternoon under circumstance he told were 'suspicious.' It's an odd choice of words from a man whom the Belize police found suspicious, following the November 2012 murder of American expatriate Gregory Faull, a well-liked builder from Florida who was shot at his home in San Pedro Town on the island of Ambergris Caye. 'I believe that there are a select few with great power in Belize that will go to great lengths to harm me,' McAfee said. 'This fire was not just a strange coincidence.'" Watch for more from McAfee soon.

What's funny about this April Fools Joke is Delta recently announced a Glass Bottom Jet feature where you can see what mountains, and cities are underneath you while flying. If you log onto Gogo In-Flight Internet while on board a Delta flight and use the Flight tracker on the iPhone/iPad you can see the attractions and terrain on your iPhone/iPad as you near them during the flight

It's $100 for 5 years. Above and beyond Pre-check you also get to use the Global Entry kiosks at major airports where incoming passengers come from international destinations (LAX, JFK, MIA, DTW, to name a few)
