North Carolina Threatens To Shut Down Nutrition Blogger

ttyRazor Re:he was giving out business cards.... (515 comments)

maybe not incorporated, but he is collecting money for his "services". This guy is going beyond saying "this worked for me!" and is pushing it on other people, treating his own anecdotal experience as a one size fits all cure for anyone with diabetes.

Precursor To the Next Stuxnet?

ttyRazor Re:After all the publicity Stuxnet created... (49 comments)

Doom Creator Says Direct3D Is Now Better Than OpenGL

ttyRazor Re:cross platform (405 comments)

Ballmer Threatens To Pull Out of the US

ttyRazor Re:No offense! (1142 comments)

income - expenses = profits

paying staff is an expense. True, you get more profit if you reduce your expenses, but unless you're overstaffed cutting staff will limit your ability to bring in income.

Flawed Online Dating Bill Being Pushed in New Jersey

ttyRazor Re:Backed by a online dating company? (192 comments)

nobody has asked for it aside from the only site that does background checks; it's a brazen attempt by to burden their competition with large disclaimers effectively saying "THIS PERSON MAY OR MAY NOT BE A CEREAL RAPIST"
