This is what happens when you have a society that can no longer make things that are productive and all become journalists and bloggers with nothing of use to write about. Nintendo did this to try to curb an issue they saw. Someone with no real news to report decided to try to make this news. Now it's an issue for no real reason. I'm not against reporting whatever you want, just noting how pathetic society is in its need to consume 'news' that really isn't.
Let's see. My daughter and her boyfriend make a combined ~115k/year, both being just graduates in accounting and are paying $2000 for a single bedroom in Boston and are doing just fine. This guy pays a whopping extra $12k in rent yet it making an extra 45k a year. I'm not seeing a huge issue with SV.
No, the purpose of AI should be that it can problem solve and adapt to a situation as well, or better than us. With an unfair reaction benefit it can actually problem solve worse, yet still win simply because it has an external advantage. That doesn't sound like a win for AI to me.
You would be wrong. Its on the manufacturing side real savings will occur. Understand they talk about ketchup because it does just this, gets people talking about their product. Ketchup doesn't matter in their plan other than to help secure funding. There are processes that may or may not be food related where 10+% of product is lost due to the viscosity of the product. In fact the purpose of this money raising is to invest in their CleanTanX product line.
The government should charge $125k/year, or some other number, for each one. The company gets to take the salary off of that. That said, the ramp up to y2k allowed IT salaries to also become unrealistic for what most of the industry does and is qualified to do. It does need to adjust.
They got paid while they were working. Look at the app, they were all guilty of trying to milk the system for cash for something that isn't worth the money. Some people are born rich and will always have money, some aren't. That's life.
