    Professor: Kindle is a “Poor Excuse of an Academic Tool”

    If anyone wants their ebook reader to be respected in the classroom, they have to offer these capabilities, point blank. It's a multi-front attack...they need books available and the software/hardware to support it. Exceeder

    Poor IT Job Market May Fuel Online Crime

    The point is that being "cyber criminal pedigree" has nothing to do with being laid off. The post insinuated that people who haven't been laid off are more talented, or skilled, or a level above people who HAVE been laid off. It ain't true. This job market is a massacre, everyone is being...

    Poor IT Job Market May Fuel Online Crime

    No, but there are many talented people who have a passion for what they do, who aren't "just in it for a check" as was so delicately stated. Re-read what was written and I am sure you will see how it isn't necessarily appropriate, given this job market.

    Best Buy Calls Twitter a Job Qualification

    Just another ridiculous job posting from another company that probably has no intent to hire anyone at all. Making obscene job requirements and then claiming that no american can meet them is a pre-requisite for obtaining H1-B visas.

    Poor IT Job Market May Fuel Online Crime

    Out of curiosity, does it feel awesome to assume that you still have a job because you are part of some elite workforce that isn't stupid enough to get laid off right now?

    Poor IT Job Market May Fuel Online Crime

    Typical ignorant jackass who hasn't lost his job yet...hope you are the next one to be H1-B'ed out of existence. Have fun training your off-shored replacement when your boss realizes your overinflated paycheck can be reduced to nearly nothing by a team of 10 guys in Bombay.

    Now is the time...there isn't anything like this on the has the only decent IT careers forum, and it's nothing great. Many [H] readers are hurting for work, and looking to discuss the situation with others...why does Hardocp seem so blind to this fact?

    Why File Sharing Will Save Hollywood, Music

    Media is free nowadays, whether you want to bloviate about "morals" or law, the reality of the situation is that media is free. The only CD I have bought in the last 10 years is AC/DC's latest album, and that's because it was reasonably priced and I knew I would enjoy the entire work. This...

    Google Cutting 200 Marketing and Sales Jobs

    So as long as everybody gets something from their investments, but not "too much", you are happy? At what point would YOU turn down return on your investments? If you bought stock in a company and it shot up 2000% in one day, I doubt you would turn it down because you didn't want to be "greedy".

    Semantic E-mail Delivery: The Future of E-mail?

    Circuit City Jacks Up Prices For Liquidation
