If a company is hiring and using "social media" as a benchmark:
- does it count against you if you have a small footprint.
- can you be dismissed for embellishing your profile (LOL)
- would the company apply this background check to it's current employees (note: HR department, this applies to you too)
- this is biased against (stereotyping) a younger segment of the population.
Just banning them is just plain stupid..
Doing things for the greater good because a small minority fracks it up is selfish - usually reactionary clap trap from politicans who just "ride the wave" so then can be re-elected next year. There should be guidelines.. there should be debate..
Otherwise, you should ban cars and trucks - if there weren't any, then no one would die in car crashes..
Ok, as a guessimate and assuming this survey means excluding:
- the poor who cannot afford insurance so access to the best care (about 15-16%)
- obese people who have underlying health issues? (about 65%)
So the remaining 20% who can afford healthcare and are do not have an underlying illness - get the BEST treatment in the world.
Now this is a great sample - it only proves, reinforces and highlights the 2 tier system in the US.
If a compnay holding the DRM server goes out of business, then there's not much you can do about it.
But then why sell something you cannot service or maintain for the life of the product. In other industries if a company goes down, sometimes another steps in to offer repair/maintence services. But with DRM, yo have bought the right to use/play something - but are at risk to a 3rd party. If thats the case, you should be able to go back to the record studio as they own the licence!
Also, MS effective withdraw their servers for fairplay. Or Sony?? They are still around, but just pulled the plug.
But what RIAA are saying is that they have effectively broken your contract. Maybe under the sale of goods act you can demand damages? Class Action anyone?
This is why DRM is bad. I remember one of the solutions from a provider was to burn your music on to a CD (Before the DRM servers went down) and re-rip it. Ie effectivelt telling you to by pass their own DRM!
In the end, so long as your copy lasts until their copyright expires, you are OK!
I thought ties-in were to be released before or during the film?
This is why US Auto makers are suffering. It needs to work smarter, not just rely on tax dollars and bail outs.
in the OP.. when they say RAID is not backup.
They are technically correct.
RAID alone is definitely not a solution, although it can be part of the solution. The poster is being too literal. One has to identify what is important and how much they are willing to spend and how convenient they want it to be.
My solution works for me as it keeps my possible downtime to a minimum and I was happy to buy a RAID1 (1Tb) and had a spare portable drive. The RAID immediate protects me from my desktop failing (but not if I accidentally erase anything or something becomes corrupted). The portable is the backup for something happening to BOTH my desktop and RAID1 (which has 2 mirrored drives hence 2copies of my desktop).
The post is too generic.
If they identified in their post what was at stake, budget, their technical expertise...
