Interesting story -- not clear if it is an obituary...

So am I understanding this correctly, they're giving these people an extra $0.25? Wow, that 10 bucks a week is definitely going to help out.
It isn't precisely clear... it could mean more than that...
First, a planned increase of $1 for workers already making $15 per hour will increase to an additional $1.25 per hour for some workers, according to Bloomberg.
Bold added by me...

Is that a criticism? Because it seems reasonable to me.

Right to repair laws can't come soon enough. And it isn't only a phone and computer issue. It extends into many business, the next one which comes to mind is John Deere tractors...

Well, she does have a very wide smile which is somewhat reminiscent of the crazy joker smile. But I see no other similarities...

It really is a great example of their self-delusion.

Limited?? It's the second most abundant element in the galaxy after hydrogen!!1
The fact helium is abundant in the universe does not preclude the fact there is a limited amount of it on this planet.

I'm less concerned about the loss of helium than all the rubber which probably killed all kinds of wild life which ate the balloons.

Glad to know the gyroscope problem won't be killing Hubble (yet). The initial reports were vague enough to cause some concern...

Yeah, in the same way you are gambling with your life when you take a shower -- you might slip, fall, and break your neck. Unless your immune system is compromised for some reason, the "risk" of a flu shot is not a valid reason to not get one.

Yeah, but being a hacker requires dealing with far less bullshit than is required to become a broker at a firm where you can make as much money. Laugh

So, they had a bug reporting system which didn't allow the bug reporters to set a severity problem level? Nice. Their level of incompetence on a scale of 1-10 is an 11.

Too bad I'm not more of a hacker and had less morals.. skimming/scamming a couple of million in cryptocurrency could make life so much cooler..

I think getting a flu shot is a reasonable and even responsible thing to do. Yeah, there is a "risk", there is a risk to each and every single thing you do. And the risk in this case is much lower than many of the things people do every day.

That said, I can beat Cutter by one, I've had the flu once in 56 years of living. I was required to get the flu shot while I was in the USAF but didn't before nor since. I probably should, especially as I get older and maybe I'll start doing so in the near future. But for now isn't worth the hassle of the insurance interaction to bother...

Not going to happen anytime soon. And frankly, there are several trillion dollars worth of just road and bridge repairs which have a higher priority.

Well, just jail-breaking them he might have gotten away with, but when he then turns around and sells them with pirated games... companies notice that shit.
