    Law banning “rental” fees for customer-owned routers takes effect Sunday

    That isn’t their choice if they are the local phone company. I work for a ISP. Regulations require us to either make people take a landline or charge them a dry internet fee that is about $10 more than the cost of a phone line. All those taxes and fees and charges all go to various places and...

    Microsoft Internal Documents - Permanent Work From Home

    We have decided for now to keep as much WFH as possible. I can say that without the proper processes in place and the type of work that work from home can and will bread some laziness. I had that issue with my department. While on the clock had one person decide they needed to go clean their...

    DOOM for potato heads still crunching z80s

    This one is just slightly better than the home pregnancy test strip one. So he made a battery, poorly, out of potatoes. Something like this lemon battery is a MUCH better setup and actually would give him the power to run his pi. When ever trying to build something massive it is always a...

    CD PROJEKT RED Mandates Six-Day Work Weeks Ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s Launch

    I like how everyone talks about how they are getting paid... Based on the way the management worded it they wouldn't be if they had a choice. The fact that the company response is due to Polish laws we will be paying everyone overtime. If a company came out and stated our product will not kill...

    The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Confirms a Pattern of Age Discrimination at IBM

    One thing that isn't stated is that for those that are brought back as contractors how many hours do they work then? This is one of those hard things to side with at times. While it isn't right to fire somebody that makes more just to hire in somebody that makes less, there are going to be...

    Leaked Salary Spreadsheet Reveals Microsoft Employee Earnings for a Second Year

    When you use a online form to collect the data and share the results all over facebook, doesn't sound like you were trying to keep the data secret. The group from Microsoft gave it to this website. So it doesn't sound like they were expecting this data to stay inhouse but compiled a list of...

    Leaked Salary Spreadsheet Reveals Microsoft Employee Earnings for a Second Year

    How is it leaked if people submitted the data? We don’t say that this forum is leaking our usernames or our thread post. We don’t call it leaked that you can see names on Facebook. Leaked to me would imply a copy of the accounting data made it to the internet and all employees records were...

    $1,900 Death Stranding Jacket Released, Sells Out Instantly

    The entire point of the stimulus checks isn't for people to put the money into the bank and sit on it. Its the same as last time the US government gave out money like this. It is meant to be extra money in your pocket that you go out and spend to help the economy. The point was for everyone to...

    Animal Crossing New Horizons PC Playable Via Yuzu Switch Emulator; Here’s How To

    Sure ROMs are perfectly legal if you bought the game and ripped the ROM yourself.

    Crysis remastered could be announced soon on new CryEngine tech

    What ever happen to the 4th game they have been talking about for the past decade? Have to agree with others. A remake is just being lazy. Now if they could easily recompile the old games with the new engine. Release those as a reminder of the storyline. Then follow it with a new game that would...

    In Europe Netflix might throttle during peak hours

    I actually expect to see the peak on my network go down just because of the fact that we just opened the flood gates and gave customers faster speeds across the board. One of the things that many can't wrap their heads around very well is that as customers have faster speeds they get done with...

    Lets see how well attaching images work. Hopefully they don't get turned into some goofy size. Cacti likes to remove some of the granularity after a few days as I haven't bothered to reconfigure it from normal installed settings so last week isn't as sharp as today. But here are bandwidth...

    Free Hacked Spotify Coming to an End

    According to the person above you are getting ripped off and that concert should be free as you only get to see and hear the music once while at the concert. Since you don’t get to own the band and keep them at your house paying for a concert is fucking bullshit.

People that call the Y2K “bug” a non event are no different than somebody saying that...

    Apple's New Mac Pro Costs $53,000 When You Max Out the Specs

    no the cost is too damn high. I work in the industry and can tell you the prices are high.
