That's the only way Amazon can make a profit.
Well that, and the fact that their 8TB drives are really only 7.45tb after formatting.
They're nothing but a bunch of cheats.
Yup. Never buy anything advertised as OEM from Amazon either. I can't count the number of times I've bought OEM advertised goods on Amazon only to be shipped the cheaper non-OEM product. These are for products that say fulfilled and shipped by Amazon as well. If you don't notice, you're getting completely ripped off. Someone really needs to start investigating their business practices as a whole.

In the U.S. software engineers are exempt from overtime regulations. The company can pay it but it's not law. I've been in the industry many years, don't know of anyone around here that gets paid OT. But frankly I appreciate being able to work whenever I want and not keeping my time or punchclocking whatever. My particular company can get really busy if there is a hard deadline coming up but crunch is mostly not a thing for us thankfully. But you submit your own estimates for work, so if you're way over what you thought it would be you better have a good explanation or be willing to work some late nights to catch yourself up. Not required, but I'm sure it reflects on your performance if you never get anything done when you say you will.
As far as I know that exemption not restricted to just software engineers, but any salaried employee vs. hourly in the US. No Overtime pay for Salaried Employees.
That may have changed but I have had a Salary type job in will over 25 years.
Above $36,000. Below that, and they would be eligible.
How do I know that? In order to avoid furloughs when our revenue plummeted in March, my company rolled out short-term pay reductions. I took a 12% hit. The average was 5%. People making $40k weren't impacted, to avoid any chance of putting them below this, but I don't think we have many people making below $45k.
Apparently the Obama administration tried to make it $47,500, or $913 per week, but a court shot that down.

Ginsburg believed in a "living" U.S. Constitution so that directly goes against her vow to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Now she can be replaced by a Constitutional judge and the SCOTUS will be far off better for it.
So did the forefather that wrote the Constitution. That was it's whole point.
Take a basic ConLaw class. Even conservatives that claim to hate this notion do it, as their own interpretations change just as often.
Or, instead if taking a course, just read the damn constitution. It's intentionally vague as shit.

inXile simply can't seem to make games that sell anymore. Wasteland 3 only made it to 6th place last week (launch was 8/28) and it's nowhere to be seen this week in spite of pretty decent critics reviews (86 MC average). Luckily it also has coop so publishers will hopefully not conclude yet again that single player RPGs do not sell anymore but it's still a pity to see WL3 fail at sales. It doesn't bode well for Microsoft's future plans with regard to inXile either. I don't necessarily mean shutting them down but the types of games Microsoft will greenlight.
No it's not. It's a walled garden that Apple has the same set of rules for EVERYONE on the App Store.
