Salesforce.com To Cut 200 Jobs Despite Its Expectations To Make More Money

AcidLacedPenguiN Re:Go ahead (156 comments)

mostly agree, but would it be in any way dishonest for them to take a significant government grant under the auspices of creating 300 jobs in the province (which they never did completely did) and then turn around and fire 100 existing employees just about 8 to 10 months later?

If App Store's Trademark Is Generic, So Is Windows'

AcidLacedPenguiN Re:Generic Trademarks (356 comments)

you have the 7 times the _plural form_ of window which is a generic term for a GUI element that is responsible for grouping related GUI elements together, you do not have 7 instances of Microsoft Windows. In a likewise fashion, I own a line of adult massagers called Dildoes, and while you may have more than one dildo in your possession I would not attempt to sue you for having an excessively large (bordering on unnecessary even) variety of dildoes. Hell, in your exuberantly large collection of dildoes you may even have some Dildoes brand adult massagers, but that does not mean that all of your dildoes are in fact Dildoes dildoes. Dildoes brand dildoes: now with 750% more torque than the leading brand! Ask about our new line of heated massagers!

Tofu Activists Spoof Meat-Based Indie Game

AcidLacedPenguiN Re:PETA (420 comments)

Then why don't they offer the subjects of their animal jails to the livestock industry thusly (pardon the irony here) killing two birds with one stone? They would reduce the number of animals they kill while simultaneously reducing the number of livestock *the opponent* kills? Also, since when is it more humane to incarcerate a living being for years before inevitably killing them than it is to simply kill them without the long drawn out torture?

New PS3 Firmware Causing HDD Upgrade Problems?

AcidLacedPenguiN Re:ahhh sony (82 comments)

yeah, I called it quits on firmware updates because of 3.21 locking out my ability to install linux distros. I figured maybe if they gave me features instead of take them away in the future I'd update, but 3.41 seems to be total fail too. . .

AcidLacedPenguiN Re:Button down the hatches (658 comments)

actually, when referring to closing and opening the hatches of a tank (armored vehicle) you would say "buttoning down" and "unbuttoning" respectively. Button down the hatches is indeed proper, though I agree it is less common to hear than batten down the hatches.
