HP Dumps 30,000 Workers, While Demanding More H-1B Workers submitted by Dumpsterjuice to technology

wesmoc 1 points 23 points (+24|-1) ago

Companies use H1B's as a loophole to get cheap labor. Short term gain will result in crappier quality which will ultimately destroy the brand.

Still, though, I cannot believe they even claim that they "Can't find skilled labor". It is so obvious it is BS, likely even to them, but it gets said nonetheless.

“PayPal has since issued an apology to Mr. Durdle, saying that a bug, a bad letter template, or a human error are the possible explanations for this unfortunate event.”

Aka: “something went wrong, don’t blame us.”

Websites know you're using ad-blockers, and they're coming for you submitted by basotl to technology

wesmoc 0 points 15 points (+15|-0) ago

Yep, they get more aggressive with the ads in an attempt to get click through numbers, it ticks off the site users, the site users install ad blockers to quell the noise, it ticks off the site owners, the site owners get more aggressive with the ads, and so on. Eventually the users win by going elsewhere and the site owners moan about lack of visitors.

  1. You are paranoid. Seek help. Avoid the secret courts, though.
  2. Privacy is a concern and should always be. Information is power. Don't give yours away for free. Use your voting power to put people into office that represent your views. Patriot Act should, IMHO, be tossed out the window. 2a. If you vote, you get the right to bitch about the people in office. If you don't vote, STFU.
  3. Something to think about: Our enemies do not play by the rules. If we play by the rules, who do you think is going to lose?
  4. If you don't want embarrassing stuff to happen to you at work, don't use work computers to search for personal stuff. Save that for home.

Stupid Design Patent of the Month: Rectangles on a Screen submitted by lbruiser to technology

The first two paragraphs of the article are noise. It has nothing to do with Apple or Samsung, just stupid copyright guidelines and rules as well as how they are abused.

Twitter Suspends Alex Jones Over Offending Tweet submitted by heuristic to technology

wesmoc 2 points -2 points (+0|-2) ago

Jones is a wacko akin to yelling “Fire” in a theater. He throws enough crazy crap around that the chances of getting something close to right are pretty high. Throw enough shit at the wall and guaranteed something will stick.

Your aren’t wrong.. the whole Sarah Jeong thing shows just how out of balance Twitter and the rest of them are. She may be extreme (I don’t like her and I’ve never met her), but Jones is on a whole different level.
