Comment Re:The popularity of open offices has exacerbated (Score 1) 54

The only time it became a choice at one company that I worked for was when management wanted to replace the tall cube walls with short cube walls that allowed everyone to see everyone else. Bad enough that we had to work in bullpens, but no one wanted shorter cubicle walls. Management backed off and later decided to shut down the office to save money before the company filed for bankruptcy.

I 'know' how we setup and managed our network infrastructure, but that doesn't mean your 80,000 desktop network was setup the same as ours.

If the network has 100+ Windows computers, the network infrastructure will almost always be Windows. I've never seen a Fortune 500 company use Linux with SAMBA and OpenLDAP for the domain controllers.

Comment Re:The 6th gen was a spike above the normal trend (Score 1) 205

Opposite here. I was skeptical about buying a 6+, but I wanted a replacement for my iPad Mini that I could easily read while my commuter bus was bouncing along the freeway. It felt HUGE for about a week until it became the new normal. Now I can barely type on an SE because it feels like I'm jabbing at a tiny little Barbie phone. Now that I've acclimated to the Plus's form factor, I'd hate going back.

Comment I'm pissed with them right now (Score 1) 1

Ordered a long-throw stapler and staples 2 weeks ago. The stapler came last week, staples today. The box was open at both ends, staples spilled out into the bag, box crushed and staples broken.

They won't let me return them. I'd be REALLY pissed if it wasn't just a couple of bucks.

Obamacare was designed to fail so that the ultimate goal...full government-run, single-provider healthcare...could be rolled out in the US.

Obamacare should have been a single-provider healthcare. Thanks to Republican governors insisting that their states use the federal exchange, we're already half-way there to single-provider healthcare.

You seem to be the exception rather than the rule.

Prior to Obamacare, I was paying $500 per month for company provided insurance. After Obamacare, I'm now paying $150 per month for company provided insurance. If I bought insurance on the exchange, it would be $350 per month as I don't qualify for subsidies.

I'm suggesting that we know exactly what Hillary is going to do, and we don't really know what Trump's planning. If you don't like the direction the country's been heading for the last eight years, you shouldn't vote for somebody who's committed to continuing BO's policy and hope that whatever Trump's plans are they won't be as bad as what we've got.

What ppl are missing is what will happen with M3. There will not be a single human on the main production line. Sub parts are designed to made by other robots, mixes, or just pure human labor. With this approach, the sub parts should be thoroughly vetted, and final product is expected to not have issues that they have today. In addition, I'm told that m3 line in Fremont will do up to 1.5m / year and that is without the building expansion.
