Apple's Diversity Numbers: 70% Male, 55% White

Yoda222 Re:So what! (557 comments)

Of course I see such outrages. Here:
Every time that an article speaks about diversity, there is always a fucking moron to complain that we don't see such an outrage. Disproving it's own point.

Apple's Diversity Numbers: 70% Male, 55% White

Yoda222 Re:Jobs to Cook: DFIU (557 comments)

This goes in the 50% of marketing. If you have a diversity policy, it's a diversity policy. If you communicate over your diversity policy, it's PR.

Apple's Diversity Numbers: 70% Male, 55% White

Yoda222 Re:Now it's unfair.... (557 comments)

I think you miss a few details here.

Firstly, you oppose white and foreign people. I'm not sure for your country, but in the US some citizen are non-white without being "foreign people"

Secondly, these are Apple numbers for around the globe, so the concept of "foreign" is strange, in that context.

Or uncheck "remember my credit card information" and type it each time that you want to buy something. A standard human brain is usually able to remember the 20-ish digits needed (I assume you already know your address and name)

Swedish Fare Dodgers Organize Against Transportation Authorities

Yoda222 Re:Scandinavia is different (389 comments)

In most hotels (all of them, as far as I remember) where I have been, when I wanted to visit a friend, they just let me go out to see it. So I'm not sure why you compare the prison which hired people to visit someone inside to hotels.

L.A. Science Teacher Suspended Over Student Science Fair Projects

Yoda222 Re:Sick Society (253 comments)

In fact you missed several interresting point in my stupid analogy. These point are common to both situations.

1) it's stupid to say that gun have nothing to do in dead by guns. They have at least some influence on it. Dead by real laser saber per year is 0.
2) both situation use an interesting stupid idea: compare dead in one year with the total boobs in circulation. You should compare death not per year, but over the lifetime of the boobs (or compare the dead by year with the number of breast created every year.). Or the lifetime of the gun or gun user.
3) Not all women who have breast cancer died from it. Maybe we should also count people injured by gun, not only dead.

Yoda222 Re:Sick Society (253 comments)

There are about 300 000 000 boobs in the USA, and only about 40 000 women die of breast cancer each year. Divide 40 000 by 300 000 000 and you have a proof (in your mindset) that there is no link between boobs and breast cancer.

A "cyber-attack" is a digital attack. So if your system is not digital, you can't be cyber-attacked. Great news.

Germany: We Think NSA May Have Tapped Chancellor Merkel's Cell Phone

Yoda222 So what ? (267 comments)

What's the reccurent argument that we hear from politics, probably including A. Merket or at least some CDU/CSU people ? Something like "If you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear." Does she has something to hide ?
