    Whole Foods Cuts Workers' Hours after Amazon Introduces Minimum Wage

    Why should he? I'm not a fan of Bezos, but he took all the risks involved in starting a company, so he's due the rewards. Employees accept a stable hourly wage or salary without taking in any of those risks. Big risk = big reward OR big failure.

    Official Nintendo Mario Kart 8 Livestream Features Cursing and Employees Getting Fired

    He's a company representative. I have a feeling that being a Japanese company, Nintendo won't view his "worldwide company representation" very favorably since it will have an impact on Nintendo's image, which could have a negative impact on sales.

    What a disappointment. I was hoping for something that would at least clear my sidewalk this winter. Looks like at the very least I need an XM42, but with the XL18 I could be a hero and clear the neighbor's walk at the same time. Decisions, decisions.

    Amazon Now Lets You Finance Gaming PCs and PC Parts at Zero Interest

    It makes sense if you're wise enough to factor the payments into your monthly budget so you don't miss a payment. I do it all the time with Lowes and Home Depot for tools and materials for home repairs/projects that I can't afford up front. As for CCs; I don't charge more than I can pay off when...

    If it's just to keep the slackers in line, then I applaud it. It sucks when you have to take up the slack for loafers; especially when they're from one of the ever increasing "protected classes" that "can't be fired". Now if it's to make people compete with automation, then that's entirely...
