Microsoft Rumored To Lay Off Thousands Worldwide

bowl_of_petunias Re:Layoffs (506 comments)

I have never found it easy to take someone's job from them- even when they were incompetent. I'm sure that there are a few Microsoft managers who are defending their teams as best they can. Of course, I'm assuming that the rumor is true- and you know what they say about assuming.

Microsoft Rumored To Lay Off Thousands Worldwide

bowl_of_petunias Layoffs (506 comments)

I know a few people in the NYC office who have been worried this week by the layoff rumor. Hopefully, Microsoft will streamline the company responsibly. It is unfortunate that so many companies are considering large layoffs, but it is hardly surprising. Many corporations are bogged down by redundancy or mediocrity in the workforce, and would benefit from a careful re-analysis. I know it's easy to jump to the "microsoft sucks" conclusion, but I'm afraid we will be hearing more of these stories from around the country in the next few months. I'm sure even the "evil" microsoft top executives are heartsick over the human cost (and bad press).

Small market... though I'm willing to compromise on the "hot" part. Cute is great, too.

bowl_of_petunias Hmmm... (277 comments)

"self-confessed Apple-obsessed and girls who claim they'll never sleep with Windows users"

Probably true... the odds of *ever* getting laid are not particularly good for os-obsessed humans.

ps- Speaking of not getting laid, anyone know a hot linux-obsessed lesbian?

Image of Popeye Enters Public Domain In the EU

bowl_of_petunias Popeye=Propaganda (229 comments)

Did you know that Popeye did not originally eat spinich?

Mental Floss Magazine had a brief story about our spinich-eating friend this month.

http://blogs.static.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/20794.html

In part:

"Everyone knows Popeye's secret. Whenever the cartoon sailor is on the verge of losing a fight, he squeezes open a can of spinach, pours the greens down his throat, and uses his supercharged muscles to pummel opponents. But fewer people know that the U.S. government is directly responsible for his dependence on canned vegetables."

That's right, folks! Popeye=propagana

Also, the article mentions that spinich was actively promoted due to its high-iron content, which was miscalculated when a scientist moved a decimal point.

Google Phone on Verizon Wireless Network

bowl_of_petunias bowl_of_petunias writes  |  more than 5 years ago

bowl_of_petunias (1437029) writes "Google and Verizon had a joint press conference today. http://money.cnn.com/2009/10/06/technology/verizon_google/index.htm
From the CNN Money article: "The companies said they plan to develop "several" Android-based devices that will be pre-loaded with "innovative applications" designed by Google, Verizon and third parties." and "The companies said Verizon (VZ, Fortune 500) will introduce Android-based handsets within the next few weeks." Not a huge surprise after all of the rumors, but still nice to hear confirmation. Will this give ATT haters the phone of their dreams?"
