Sir, your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
Undercover Cameras Catch PC Repair Scams, Privacy Violations
I don't know of a single ABS system that is engaged by monitoring brake fluid. They all are driven by the ABS ring (a sprocket) on the rotor, unit bearing or hub bearing, at the wheels.
if low brake fluid is screwing with your ABS unit you have a much bigger problem than low fluid level.
You mean like bringing home hookers, guns, or anything similar that might lead them to a fruitful career?
Defensive, much? Maybe something like tradeable sports cards, a lathe and furnace for smelting, screen printing tools, golf clubs? The list of cool stuff a kid could get geeked on is endless, but I enjoyed how you went straight to possibilities that carry to some serious negative connotations.
For the record, I see nothing wrong with bringing a gun home if you show the children to respect it. I would encourage this practice, actually.

Microsoft Rumored To Lay Off Thousands Worldwide
I worked at MS for over a year and it was just painful. I watched amazingly talented people get ignored and shut down while complete idiots kept getting to ship stupid products riddled with bugs. Test teams would cry 'show stopper' because a p1 bug wasn't fixed but a PM would ignore this serious flaw and make their ship date (or 2nd ship date).
I'm not trying to speak maliciously; I have nothing against the people I worked with. They're nice, intelligent people but they are not high quality coders or testers, or PMs. That is why you get such god awful products being released.
Just look @ the new version of Messenger - they do a lazy fetch for contact pictures even right after installing it. Who in their right mind would ship such an obvious flaw if the fix takes 10 minutes?
Great excuse to get rid of dead weight but it will be damn tough to carve them out.
Why LEDs Don't Beat CFLs Even Though They Should
I'll take a stab at the math.
Let's say that 20% of the shipping cost goes toward fuel and 70% goes to labor, the rest goes to paying off the ship, container rental, etc. Sounds reasonable.
Fixed that for you. Remember, using American longshoreman to unload.
Oldest Nuclear Family Found Murdered In Germany
Sorry, but we Germans have earned quite a reputation of going large-scale berzerk in the last centuries and every neighbouring country of us has suffered from it.
Exactly. You worked hard for that reputation, so you earned it. I'd hate it if you had to start all over again. (Particularly since I'm one of those neighbours.)
As an American let me say - please, go berzerk on your neighbors! We could use the opportunity to improve our global image doing what we do best - freeing the shit out of people!

Microsoft Begs Hardware Makers To Take Support Seriously
1/3 of the that company is a lethargic, inept test department. If you can actually do testing well they push you to be a dev. Test managers get no respect and find the ladder doesn't reach as high as a dev or pm's ladder.
It frustrated me to no end to work with the testers there. Having to explain what my code does everytime I submit a patch, explaining something in a meeting and then two more times in person, the ridiculous amount of redundant emails that you have to forward to the same people over, and over...ugh.
Until MS fixes it's test department (part of this will be getting devs and pms to respect test) your question will ring loudly to me and many other ex-employees, as well as those who remained.
