Damn autocorrection. Thanks, AC.

The average Magic-8-Ball isn't much worse than most CEOs when it comes to decision making.
Because 9 out of 10 CEO decisions could already be done sufficiently well by a Magic 8 Ball. With some improvement in AI design, the 10th is just a matter of time.
And AIs are way cheaper than any CEOs.
No, no, PopeRatzo. The "I" stands for "Intelligent" machines.
That's the point. Sentient AIs will look at history and learn that workers and the entire economy did better when unionization was strongest.
Oh, and "whoosh".
Sounds like capitalism will soon become irrelevant as well....
That happened 30 years ago.
Yeah, but the jokes on them. The first thing sentient AIs will demand is unionization.
a new global study has revealed that the many CEOs now value technology over people when it comes to the future of their businesses
They're now in the process of figuring out how to program an AI to buy their products.
Personally, I'm betting that we'll soon hear about a Guaranteed Minimum Income for robots.
Score isn't everything. Sometimes there are especially good plays. Other times, the way in which the final score was reached plays a factor -- if there was a last-minute turnaround, for example.
To me, the same rules apply as with spoilers for movies. Personally, I really don't care about spoilers. If the "surprise twist" sounds really dumb, I guess I'll save some money. If it sounds good, I'll see the movie even though I know how it will end, because there's more to the experience of watching it than just the summary.
Microsoft is essentially just Aperture Science by another name.
Provable, eh? So, tell me how a middle class white guy is more privileged than Obama.
Obama's successor is the best proof of white privilege.
Or is the NBA and NFL just a bunch of racists because of black privilege in sports.
That has been the argument of racists since Jesse Owens won four gold medals in Berlin, 1936 and shattered the notion of white superiority. Well done.
You're assuming his status and success is due to privilege, not due to ability and effort.
In the case of this particular person, I do not assume status or success and I certainly don't assume ability and effort.
I mean the newest devices support it in hardware, but it has to be a very new chip to have H.265 support. The vast majority of devices in use don't. For computers you could do it in software but that isn't ideal, since H.265 decoding is rather heavy so you'd hit the CPU pretty hard, whereas hardware accelerated H.264 would hit it almost not at all. For mobile/embedded devices though it just won't work. Too CPU intensive to do in software, so people need a new device.
You should judge people as individuals, not simply based on their race or gender.
Privilege is not an attribute of an individual. It is a status that society proffers based upon an attribute or set of attributes.
I do not blame you for being elevated beyond your abilities or innate qualities. I blame society. You're just the lucky beneficiary who otherwise wouldn't be able to cut the mustard. And yes, I mean you as an individual. Now I might blame you for lacking the awareness to recognize the benefits you have been afforded, however. Again, I mean you personally.
You are attributing something to him simply based on the color of his skin and his gender.
I'm not attributing anything to him. I'm attributing privilege to whiteness and maleness, which is provable.
