    Micron Cuts DRAM and NAND Flash Output as ASP Falters

    The socialism you admire so much doesn't ever meet consumer demand, for anything, doesn't innovate, and is completely immune to consequences for failing to perform.

    BioWare Warns Hostile Replies Make Developers Less Likely to Engage

    Speaking of sheep, here's an example of a fool, like so many millions in the last century, happy to march along with the Marxists to usher in a workers paradise. Never mind the endless examples of the misery it leads to, and the hundreds of millions left dead in the wake of Marxism, it will...

    BioWare Warns Hostile Replies Make Developers Less Likely to Engage

    WTF does "Toxic" mean, other than "I don't like what you're saying, so shut up!"? Another meaningless term meant to shut down speech the receiver is not satisfied with merely ignoring, but insists must be unsaid?

    Huawei is Allegedly Stealing Technology from Apple Suppliers

    The level of ignorance here regarding China's malevolent actions against Western companies and nations is staggering. Do any of you know what China's government "Technology Transfer Centers" do? Do you know that if you do business in China, you must partner with a Chinese company, against your...

    Alibaba Allegedly Developed a Chinese Propaganda App

    So comments must be limited to pointing out typographical errors, or some off topic subject? Any comment about an article regarding politics is inherently political, as every one preceding mine, except yours, has relevant, but political connotations.

    Amazon Abandons Plans to Build a Headquarters in New York

    He had full support from the key Dems in the state. All he needed. And suddenly, they just don't need another HQ right? That's pretty interesting, don't you think? From a multi billion dollar project to "unnecessary" all of a sudden. I think it became unnecessary to have a high profile, "Look...

    Vox Media Goes After YouTubers That Mocked The Verge PC Build Video

    Surprised accusations of racism didn't find their way into this. You know that was certainly part of the discussion at Vox HQ.

    The American Broadband Initiative Milestones Report

    When Americans whine about broadband speeds, they typically make comparisons to the hyper-densely populated areas of South Korea, and small densely populated sub-regions of Europe. The fact is, most lower density parts of Europe and the UK have terrible internet speeds, often DSL being the only...

    Activision Blizzard Begins Cutting 8 Percent of Its Workforce

    Oh please. Want to change from a 7 speed transmission to an 8 speed transmission on a UAW controlled assembly line? You have to renegotiate with the union. Unions can serve a useful purpose in some situations, but in most instances, and especially in government unions, they are an impediment to...

    GTA V Cheat Maker Ordered to Pay Take-Two $150,000 in Copyright Damages

    Wrong. All he has to do is file for bankruptcy, and boom, judgement is gone. Now, if he has any significant assets, he will lose those, but depending on the state, a bankrupt individual may get to keep a lot (like a house, vehicles, retirement savings, etc).

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    Describe, in detail, what precisely are the subsidies you claim are available to ICE powered cars? And to answer the rest of your rant, "Oh, it's got Green in the name, so it must be motivated by a desire to save the earth" rather than enrich certain companies that support the "correct"...

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    I knew from the headline, this was the work of HardOCP's in-house leftist. Notice he has chosen to use the word "tax" in this instance, and not "subsidy" to the electric car industry, which more accurately describes what the credit was.

    EE Times Looks at Intel's New CEO

    There's no reason to believe someone with a PhD in a technical field is any good at leadership, business, or finance. Not that they're mutually exclusive, but in my experience, PhD's are hyperfocused.

    EE Times Looks at Intel's New CEO

    I really don't care about any of those details. We need to know what sort of diversity he is bringing to intel. I've read he's married with two children. I certainly hope that's not a woman he's married to, we don't need any more male hetero CIS CEOs.

    Ubisoft Apologizes for The Division 2 Email Promising "A Real Government Shutdown"

    LOL, for more than 95% of the federal workforce, it meant 3 weeks of free time off, and then 100% of backpay+interest. The ONLY federal employees "affected" were the ones who couldn't handle 1 temporarily delayed paycheck. Even then, federal credit unions were willing to provide loans to ALL...

    Americans Are Lining Up to Work for Amazon for $15 an Hour

    You have it backwards. Those jobs pay as little as they do because plenty of illegals(ie, the "supply") are willing to do it for those wages, and not just in agriculture. Remove illegals from the labor pool and wages will have to rise to a level where legal workers would do it. More likely...

    Americans Are Lining Up to Work for Amazon for $15 an Hour

    As SilverSliver said, they stopped counting 'discouraged workers' in the unemployment rate under Obama. Now, with workers moving back into the labor market, it makes the the unemployment rate look HIGHER than it would've been under the old system. It's kind of frightening that despite a...

    Americans Are Lining Up to Work for Amazon for $15 an Hour

    Geezus. Fast food line work was a part time job for students and retirees for most of my life. Now people expect it to pay as if this was skilled, career work. You can be completely illiterate and unskilled, and still do the job. Guess what, unskilled work should to be the lowest paying, since...

    Americans Are Lining Up to Work for Amazon for $15 an Hour

    I'm trying to understand what you're saying. All the stats clearly indicate an excellent job market. Employers are complaining about not finding enough qualified workers. Are you saying it's not true, the job market sucks, wages are not rising? Seriously, I'd like to know what you're basing this...

    Americans Are Lining Up to Work for Amazon for $15 an Hour

    Lazy logic. Of course higher wages cut into profit. Lower wages would've meant an ever higher profit. With the incredibly good job market right now another economic dynamic is taking place, supply and demand. More jobs chasing fewer available workers=higher wages. That's the reason mega-corps...

    California Dealers File Petition against Volvo's All-Inclusive Car Subscription Service

    There is a spin on this that bears pointing out. In no way does the lawsuit allege this is a "threat to the traditional business model". That's Megalith's spin on it, implying the dealers are simply refusing to accept "progress". They argue it's against California Law, it's a violation of the...

    Foxconn Axes 50,000 Seasonal Jobs as Apple Slowdown Bites

    What really, really screwed over iPhone sales was Apple finally getting busted for slowing older phones via a hidden 'battery management' system that reduced performance based on battery age, supposedly to ensure customers got a full day's worth of use. Once they were forced to reveal that...

    First-Ever 2020 Toyota Supra Sells for a Whopping $2.1 Million

    The Supra was not popular because of it's off the shelf design. It was unusual, a fluke really, because it's engine and driveline we capable of withstanding upgrades allowing it to quadruple the power offered by the factory. That is no longer the case, it's just a modern, mediocre power car...

    Samsung Operating Profits Nose-Dive 40% in Q4 2018 Due to Declining Chip Sales

    Exactly. Peak smartphone. As with every technology, most major advances come early on, then it's slow, incremental tweaking. There has been no new feature in the last 3 years to tempt me to switch phones. The one move left to expand the number of buyers would be to shift the whole pricing...

    Google Shifted $23 Billion to Bermuda in 2017 as Part of Tax Avoidance Scheme

    LOL, cognitive dissonance? How about the fact that left wing Google is fully allied with the Democrats, the party that rails against corporations. Google is so left wing, their employees are free to protest against supporting the US military, during working hours, and they have no problem...

    China Forms New Body to Review Ethics Risks of Video Games

    Before the Communists there was a deep, ancient Chinese culture that was inventive and productive. The left always has to destroy the underlying culture hosting it. Today, if you want to see real Chinese culture, music, dance, art, it's to be found in the expat communities that make up the...

    Country Officials Outraged Over Zuckerberg's Absence from Hearings

    Of course they can. Facebook is a registered business entity in the EU, conducts business in the EU, pays taxes in the EU, and he is the principal officer. They can impose penalties for failing to appear if given a lawful order to do so, they can even bar Facebook from doing business in the EU...
