If the blood-thirsty Chinese Communist Party ever lost its total control over its media, that would be the day of its demise and the brutal CCP is fully aware of this fact. Since 1949, the CCP has murdered over fifty million of its own people and is now systematically annihilating the tens of millions of innocent Falun Gong practitioners who live in Red China. This heinous attempted genocide is using torture, enslavement, organ harvesting and murder. One doctor, employed by the CCP, just confessed to removing the corneas from two thousand living human beings, leaving them blind. If these millions of human rights atrocities ever become public knowledge, the CCP will be finished. This is my understanding, thank you.
"About 18 months to two years ago, Ballmer started thinking seriously about a succession plan, the internal source said."
So why didn't Ballmer publicly announce his intention to depart then? And why would you allow an economically impactful company to go through a year or two of uncertain leadership? Perhaps Microsoft can take a page out of the longevity of companies like 3M - who for example, on Dec 21, 2010 (as reported by the Wall Street Journal) “…3M rose 97 cents, or 1.1 percent to 87.34 following Reports that the company is working with Chief Executive George Buckley on a succession plan.” Strategy is a lot less stressful to pull off when you have continuity.
j'explique cela dans un article
There are many women who are in mortal danger of ex husbands and lovers stalking them and killing them.
This is completely irresponsible on the part of Facebook. Thank you for letting me know. I will be registering my complains with them and women's protection organizations.
The essayist writes that Twitter has a “history of losses … $419 million,” subtract $317-million in 2012 revenue = -$102-million. Also, Twitter has never turned a profit and has an uninterrupted history of losses ...” Twitter is already more than $102-million in the red (it's a debtor). It's another thimblerig folks. You may as well give me the $1-billion cash from these issues. I don't owe anybody and have no intention of cheating anyone out of the money that they lend me. The essay is an admission that Twitter is selling a Ponzi scheme to those of you who are thinking about buying shares.
we got youtube banned in our region but whats the big deal, there are billions of proxy sites and even free tools to access those blocked content so what is the use of blocking the website or video portal. Make no sense for me.
I live in San Francisco and subscribe to Comcast Xfinity and Current TV on 107 has never been included, a fact I find incredible since Current is located in my city. Terrible, but I'm not expecting to see Al Jazeera anytime soon, a failure of major proportions. I love their website and would love to watch their TV but Comcast has their blinkers firmly on

about time. traditionally in the net world, only a single user & password. how about multiple passwords? if hackers bypass one, they must hit two others. yes, no???
Thank you Twitter for doing this, we don't want our accounts to be hacked and for that you need to work on the security part.
Most people who need desktop PCS have them and don't need new ones very often as the baseline performance is more than adequate. Many people do only the tasks that smaller devices handle well. Previously they used desktops or a laptop because that's all there was.
Desktop PCs aren't going anywhere, but they are no longer a boom industry and they will be getting smaller and increasingly sharing the market. Smart phones and tablets are still computers, so why all the fuss over form factor? Adapt to the market or downsize to your market. Or sell the company to someone who knows what they are doing.
I would agree
big dongles. lol.
Surprise, men are immature. Why take it out on the rest of us 'cuz you're only getting it from a battery powered dongle?
@Trisha Lynn Dragon: This was at a developer's conference. So it was a room full of nerds. Most developer nerds are not normal. They are intelligent and good at writing code, but normal social interactions are kind of foreign to them. I'm not saying this is the case with every developer, but many are this way. It's not really something we can change about them, nor would we want to. Making "dongle" jokes is childish but it shouldn't be considered harassing. If she had a problem with it, instead of being an insane person about it, she should have turned around and said, "hey guys, those jokes offend me". The way she reacted, you would have thought those guys had their pants down and they were masturbating right behind her.
well that escalated quickly
This is unreal. We've lost our minds. On her blog, Adria writes, "I changed that power dynamic and this is what the uproar is really about."
She's full of herself to the point of being delusional. Do you know what "sexual harassment" was in the '70s and early to mid '80s? It was the threat that if an employee didn't sleep with the boss, he or she would be fired. That's about it. And that's awful. In my opinion any boss who does that shouldn't just be fired, he or she should face criminal charges.
Then it migrated to overt, ongoing sexual touching and/or sexually abusive language. As well it should have. Then repeated sexual innuendo despite prior warnings. Again, rightly so. Then a pattern of explicit sexual remarks and/or jokes, whether or not directed at the "victim." Then frequent stray comments. More recently, occasional stray comments. Now, a single overheard comment in an audience at a conference? That's the standard now?
Is that really what we want? For everyone to be so fearful during work interaction they have to consider every word ten times over before uttering it, lest it ruin them? The level of intellectual and emotional vigilance we're demanding will soon surpass what would reasonably be considered "human," if that hasn't happened already.
No one's saying there's no such thing as sexual harassment, or that it should be tolerated in the least. However, distinct from that, it's not easy to leave one's humanity altogether at the door when entering the workplace. I watch what I say and have never had a related issue at work; I could be considered well practiced at workplace decorum. But work can be stressful enough without fearing that a single instance of saying the wrong thing in the vicinity of someone easily offended could undo years of diligent effort building a career and reputation.
Too much, too far. How robotic must we become?
That should teach them all a lesson. Do not eavesdrop on other people's conversations. Keep your private conversations low so they don't become public. I personally prefer to confront in person. She could have stood up, looked them straight in the eye and told them, "Really? Grow up Beavis and Butthead. Dirty jokes out loud at a professional event in this day and age? You guys stupid? I should take a picture and tweet it with your immature comments."
Here's hoping Richards takes sendgrid to the cleaners before Google's new service wipes them off the face of the earth.
I can laugh at an inappropriate and tacky joke/comment, and often do. I have a few of my own to share as well. Just, not on the job and most certainly not with strangers. There is a time and place for everything, and a joke that would be hilarious in a room full of buddies can be wildly, stupidly inappropriate elsewhere.
There is no excuse, and it's not about PC. Time and place folks, they matter.
@Roy Lawson: Why? They had no problem being inappropriately stupid in public.
The moron's wanted attention, they got it. They can STFU with the whining.
