How free is this free market? Are content producers allowed to negotiate amoung themselves to fix prices? Are they allowed to pick and choose where to offer services? Are they allowed to enforce odious restrictions? Are they allowed to solicit 'incentives' from geographic regions to set up shop?

Turns out that in Europe, they have emission laws on cars that requires them to be tigher than Americas, BUT, once past testing, they open it wide up and pollute like they are China. That is why when you look at the CO2 maps from OCO-2, you realize that Europe is actually emitting more than America does.
Basically, nations are cheating when they can.

Comment It is done wrong, so no surprise (Score 1) 176

Most Companies pay their CEOs with stock, which the CEO works hard to get its price way up, typically by cheating.
However, if they would pay their CEOs with none publicly traded stock, along with regular salary, then CEOs have a STRONG incentive to get decent dividends rather than focus on the stock price.

It really was in the space of a year or two that the average user's expectation of what 'high speed internet' should be able to do went from 'look at web pages without watching the photos load part by part, watch the occasional SD video clip on youtube or or something, and be able to download large email attachments fairly quickly' to 'be watching four different HD video streams, simultaneously.'

Comment Re:Amazon 'marketplace', wish I could disable it. (Score 2) 346

At least newegg gives you an option to limit it to newegg itself as soon as you hit search.

But yes, my one experience with their 'marketplace' (flash deals) was shit. Item shipped significantly different than item pictured, far lower quality. On the plus side, they gave a refund and did *not* want their trash back. At least it only wasted a little time (and materials)?

So, you think that 'the man' sticking it to consumers is right?
Do you believe that if a rich man murders a poor man, that the rich man should go free?

By having VW pay what the car was worth PRIOR to the report, will not bankrupt VW.
And if the car is paid out at full value towards a VW/Audi/Porsche EV, than it helps VW turn the penalty around and sell cars instead of giving money.
Mine is a win-win, where as, your suggestion is that a rich one should get a free ride on society..
