Comment Re:Another new headphone connector! (Score 1) 223

I find it hilarious - here is apple having tried to force a proprietary standard, so everything existing is not compatible (lightning).
Now we have apple finally adopting everyone else's industry standard and everything they had previously is incompatible (USB-C).

Isn't this what happened to Firewire?

Maybe one day they'll catch up to headphone jacks.

when those are your choices you're basically telling us you're too ignorant to realize that you shouldn't have to make bad choices. You're the definition of voter apathy.

If your choice is to lose an arm or a leg, well maybe you shouldn't have to accept either option.

This is the very definition of bad math/outsourcing mistakes.

Just because it costs less doesn't mean you're getting an equivalent service. If you save $200k but lose $500k in productivity then congrats you have outsourced to the detriment of the business. Likewise transition costs take out more productivity.

While the relationship isn't equal financially, the leave/fire is exactly equal.

You're not obligated to give 2 weeks and neither are they . You're given whatever the company is financially obligated to give you when you leave and vice versa. Etc.

The relationship isn't equal financially in that they make financially a substantially larger amount of money than what they pay you - which isn't disclosed to you. If you make $100k but they're making $700k off of you (even after expenses), who is getting the bad deal?

Having to pay money to remove corruption in an established organization is not the definition of ethical business in the first place.

That's called the old extortion/thug plan "pay up for protection".

BAPco deserves $0 from anyone, especially if they have a problem discriminating against people who don't give them omney.
