Obviously the author has not seen how "family" SUVs are driven. I can assure you, they do not chug along. More like, "Prepare for ramming speed!"
You can't see how someone, over a 20 year period, was able to gather 50TB of data? 2.5TB of material per year is insignificant to the amount of data people such as him have access to.
These companies might want to be careful with this move. They keep claiming they're not overlooking/bypassing/not hiring U.S. workers for cheaper, overseas labor, yet here they are claiming this ban will affect their operations because they rely heavily on workers from these countries.
They claim there is a shortage of tech workers, and have been for decades, yet each year thousands of workers are laid off and thousands of new graduates enter the workforce. To claim they can't find someone while at the same time screaming they need to have these overseas workers to fill slots is disingenuous and hypocritical and does nothing to help their case.
Because you would voluntarily hand over your money to repave the roads or build bridges, right? All the things you take for granted which are delivered by the government, you would gladly open your wallet so they could be done, right?
Considering the tens of thousands of software developers and engineers who are laid off each year by companies such as Microsoft, Google, Cisco and so on, and all the people coming into the market after graduation, I don't think that pool will ever be empty.
What might be empty are people with the exact qualifications a company may want, but all that needs to be done is a little retraining.
If companies insist on wanting someone with the exact, no-other-options, candidate for a position and are unwilling to offer training, they deserve to go under.
The whole debate about climate change is because of three specific groups:
Those who want to suppress the science because it might interfere with them making a profit, those who don't want to admit climate change because they believe having to change will interfere with their way of life, and those who think being ignorant and ignoring the facts is the way to go.
This was summed up quite nicely by Asimov:
"Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"
Why should we not be surprised? This is the same company which claims it's a "ride sharing" company, not a taxi company, yet as far as I know, not a single one of their drivers is picking up people who want to go the same direction as the driver.
Instead, the people contact some random Uber driver to pick them up at a specific location then be driven to the location of their choice, all for a fee.
That certainly is an interesting definition of "ride sharing" especially in one of the more recent incidents where an Uber driver drove someone from Virginia to New York and back. I highly doubt the driver was already going that route.
That Uber should now be found guilty of duping people into believing they could make X dollars a year by driving for them (isn't that the way a cab driver works, they drive for a company?), or that Uber was deliberately fudging numbers on the costs involved to lease a vehicle from them shouldn't surprise anyone, especially when this company, despite all the money they're bilking from people, still can't turn a profit.
I looked on both of the links but had to read to figure that what I thought was some kind of nifty graphic announcing the new logo was in reality, the logo itself.
If one is trying to show off a new logo it might be better to not make it look like it's part of a web page.
The longer the title, the less important the job.
