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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
Understood, appreciate the reply...I was referring to the distinct lack of coverage of the slow death of the IT industry in the US, which is this site's primary readership...just trying to help out the H, as it's helped me plenty of times. In the meantime I guess I'll keep heading over to...
Now is the time...there isn't anything like this on the web...Dice.com 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?
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.
Me and my girlfriend needed it to check out the house/neighborhood that we were going to live in when moving half a country away, from Chicago to Austin, Tx. We wanted to see what the houses actually looked like, etc. You can't tell that from a top-down view. Using Google I "drove" to the gym...
If you guys want to see the frustration that is occuring in the American IT industry, check out the forums on dice.com, where people who have been unable to land an interview for months go to vent.
If I was Indian I would almost fear for my life in this country after reading some of the posts...
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".
How original. :rolleyes: If it weren't for "evil corporate greed" none of us would have a job.
The second a company starts making decisions based on altruism is second needed for them to get buried by the competition.
"Shut up with the CEO hate already. If it's such an easy job, y'know just sitting around jerking off, why don't you go fill the spot? I mean, all you have to do is play pool and swim all day."
QFT...there is a reason they are compensated that much, if not for the effort and talent, for reasons...
So if I take a bunch of old floppys and fold them to look like paper airplanes, will I get a news mention on Hardocp?
Videos of kids shooting the shit out of their monitors with a shotgun: Cool.
Pictures of guys wearing their opened, upside down laptops as hats: Not Cool.
Why is this different than a database of contacts with different "roles" ie. John Smith can be in the "Friends" "Brothers" "Siblings" and "Coworkers" roles...just select the role you defined and email everyone associated with it...right?
Or am I missing something?
I recently paid $5.99 for some shitty ipod game, and $10.99 for WTF: Work Time Fun on the PSP, and these are both shameless rehashes of 80's arcade games...they suck, they are mind-numbing, and I am terrified to spend any more money on these downloadable games.
As a guy who shelled out full...
I use Google Docs for 99% of my spreadsheet/doc creation...if I need my content to look nicer (ie resume, etc) I'll set it up using my work laptop.
I keep open office around so I can open up files on my home computer, but I wouldn't feel comfortable editing a resume on it, I just can't be...
Isn't this what they do when companies lease mainframes or mainframe time? Seems that the model is moving away from this, considering with the internet and cloud computing you may not even know what processor where is doing what...
The lack of IT Contractors that comment on the HardForums when discussing the IT job market blows my mind.
That being said, they might all be looking for a job right now...no contractor should be even remotely delusional that their jobs are secure right now, with firms paying 100+ dollars an...
