The Worst Apple Store In America — An Employee Confession

crow_t_robot Re:Tips for employee fidelity (310 comments)

Treat your employees with respect. Pay them a respectable wage with benefits. Look out for them and they will look out for you and your business. If you are a faceless megalo-corp that just hires and fires peoplemeat all day then expect to have your store pillaged and burned.

Capitalists Who Fear Change

crow_t_robot Re:And this is why federal government needs to shr (297 comments)

I think you are on to something with all of these. For medicare, I don't think the problem is how much we spend but how much healthcare costs. Healthcare prices are actually set by a group of doctors called the Relative Value Update Committee (RVUC) that meets every 4 months. The meetings are in total secret and if you do get an invite to attend then you have to sign legal paperwork swearing you won't leak what you saw and heard. Here is one scam they run: the balloons used to do a sinus procedure cost $2600 each so the RVUC valued the cost of the materials for the procedure at NUMBER_OF_SINUES*2600 when only one balloon is typically used for all of the sinuses in a procedure. This is how these values get set and there appears to be ZERO oversight.

Capitalists Who Fear Change

crow_t_robot Re:And this is why federal government needs to shr (297 comments)

Just name one. Name it and target it. You have to start somewhere. Nebulous comments about "shrinking government" without any kind of details is straight from the Fox News daily playbook.

Ask Slashdot: Advice For Budding Scientist?

crow_t_robot Let Me Get This Straight... (279 comments)

Recently I've noticed some alarming pessimism among Slashdotters about the state of science

So, you are going to make career decisions based on the mindset of a subset of the slashdot readership? For actual advice I would say do what you love and the rest will work itself out.

crow_t_robot Re:18 months won't matter (412 comments)

It takes 1 year to develop a deflection solution but it takes 27 years for the design to get through finance/purchasing and manufacturing once it goes to release.

Government Should Ban Skinny Models To Curb Anorexia, Say Researchers

crow_t_robot It's True (676 comments)

Banning skinny models definitely would help fix the problem. I'm normally against such type of regulation but when the common person is blasted in the face by constant advertising in every form imaginable 24/7 then i tend to fall on the side of regulation.

It's not like the average person can moderate the amount of advertising that rapes their eyeballs and subconcious every day.

Wikileaks and Anonymous Join Forces Against US Intelligence Community

crow_t_robot Newsflash (268 comments)

Newsflash, dickbags:
US intelligence services have ALWAYS been fucking awful. I don't care how many Jason Bourne movies you have watched, US intel has been shit since the day it started as the OSS. Please take the time to read the book, Legacy Of Ashes and you can begin to see what a clownshow US intelligence services have been for the past 60+ years.

Love,

Wikileaks and Anonymous Join Forces Against US Intelligence Community

crow_t_robot Re:Is this article some kind of a joke? (268 comments)

You, sir, are correct. That is why the US has "classified by aggregation" status for documents. The individual documents would not be classified individually, but when you combine them with others they end up becoming classified.

Red Hat Appoints Robyn Bergeron First Female Fedora Project Leader

crow_t_robot Re:s/First Female/Robyn Bergeron as/ (146 comments)

Outliers are not the rule. That would be like claiming that since there is one women in the world that can run a 14min 5k that the bar should be raised for all women for competitive scoring.

Are women generally less capable than men

Yes. Look at the physical fitness standards and scoring for the military if you don't believe so.

crow_t_robot More Importantly... (289 comments)

NBC reports that airport travelers left behind $409,085.56 in loose change at security checkpoints in 2010

More importantly how much of their dignity was left behind at the checkpoint after they had their asshole fingered by a former Burger King employee?

Businesses Now Driving "Bring Your Own Device" Trend

crow_t_robot Re:also reduces IT costs (232 comments)

This reduces cost in the short-term but it will be a cost increase in the long-term.

It just takes 1 piece of malware on your network or one security event to loose all the financial benefit. Or how about when someone has a piece of pirated software on their personal machine that they are doing company work on? Or how about when someone loses a personal laptop without WDE that holds sensitive company information?

It just takes one event.
