    Whole Foods Cuts Workers' Hours after Amazon Introduces Minimum Wage

    So the worst-case scenario was the same pay for fewer hours of work? That definitely sounds like a disaster.

    Activision and EA CEOs Appear on List of "Most Overpaid" in the US

    Shareholders don't make hiring decisions; boards do. A strong argument could be made that boards are not acting in the best interests of the shareholders when they overpay under-performing CEOs.

    Activision and EA CEOs Appear on List of "Most Overpaid" in the US

    First: Nobody who has worked in corporate America for any appreciable amount of time would mistake it for a meritocracy, nor believe that corporations generally make good decisions. In my experience, larger companies survive in spite of bad decisions, usually because of barriers to entry...

    Activision and EA CEOs Appear on List of "Most Overpaid" in the US

    Capitalism works very well with appropriate, effective regulation. Unfortunately, our government has been bought and our regulatory bodies have been captured, so now it's just a matter of time until the national debt eats us alive. Meanwhile, the ultra rich will continue to loot right up...

    Activision and EA CEOs Appear on List of "Most Overpaid" in the US

    LOL, no. Though I knew someone was going to post that particular screed. If these people are so elite and talented, why do they all need golden parachutes? Because the truth is that they're most just lucky sociopaths. This isn't an issue of supply and demand, but of ineffective corporate...

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    Also interesting about this thread: The number of people assuming that a conviction means the defendant was guilty. Innocent people often have very strong financial incentives to plead guilty to a lesser charge, and going to trial is risky.

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    That's a negative...there is no straw man. When you make sweeping statements including works like "only" and "always," your argument is very easy to disprove. A single counter-point suffices, because you have implicitly made a host of other arguments. For example, if you were argue that ALL...

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    And I don't know why it is so hard for some people to accept that illegal in not a synonym for immoral. Also, you very clearly stated that the severity of a crime is determined solely by type (and therefore not by degree). I then provided an example which demonstrated that you were...

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    So...five over on the freeway is the same as fifty over in a school zone? They're both speeding, and since (you believe that) severity is determined solely by the type of the crime...

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    You don't appear to understand economics. Attacking the supply is futile. Don't even get me started on the crazy rape analogy.

    San Francisco Uses Computer Algorithm to Dismiss 9,362 Marijuana Convictions

    Don't you mean NON-EXISTENT medical bills for weed addiction? The sheer number of people who can't or won't separate "illegal" from "immoral" never ceases to astound me. Just look at all the "law and order" lunacy in this thread.

    Blizzard To Double Down on Warcraft and Diablo IPs

    That seems like the inevitable endgame. Maybe all the "convergence" talk over the last few decades wasn't wrong -- just mistaken about the eventual point of convergence (the phone instead of a set-top box).

    "Fresh Prince" Star Sues Fortnite for Stealing Carlton Dance

    I know nothing about IP law -- apparently not even the difference between copyright and patent -- but that won't stop me from pontificating about the legal merit of this case. -- 90% of the people in this thread.

    After Losing Half Its Value, NVIDIA Faces Reckoning

    You're confusing market capitalization and profit. Nvidia doesn't lose money when the stock price goes down. Also, they can't make 2080TIs for $200...why would they ever want to sell them for that?
