    HP Will Cut 30000 Jobs
    • Hewlett-Packard will shed as many as 30,000 more jobs as it splits into two companies, the company said at a meeting with analysts in San Jose, Calif.

      The new reductions amount to about 10 percent of the new company’s workforce, and will save about $2.7 billion in annual operating costs.

      The new cuts would bring the total jobs eliminated a Hewlett-Packard since Meg Whitman became CEO to about 85,000.

    Epson and cartridges
    • Guys made amazing "discovery" that was known for long.

      Actually printer do not know how much ink is left, and it even do not accurately track how much it consumed (as it can lead to income fall :-) ), just use rough estimate that it send to cartridge chip during each print task usually :-)

    Apple as hallmark of imperialism
    • Apple had fun presentation today.

      They copied almost exactly horrible presentations of Asian companies with their constant change of people each 2 minutes to have everyone on stage to boost status.

      They stopped even pretending that they make something for people and not for their investors and corporations offering apps and content in their store.

      They also added some bullshit about sensors. They now can shoot 4K videos, I mean that you could soon even buy smartphone from them costing 4x than Samsung S5 and with worse screen.

      Apple is small tip of iceberg of huge imperialistic monster consisting from some of their contractors, finance institutions, government clerks and judges, lots of media and sites (owned by same owners) who make all initial noise, all this formed in the one giant form of melting ice. And successful destruction of such monsters requires destruction of system itself.

    Microsoft and effective management
    • Microsoft is considering a multibillion-dollar revamp of its headquarters campus in Redmond, seeking to foster more collaboration among employees.

      The potential updates would be aimed at shifting away from private offices toward the more open-plan work spaces that are favored by today’s technology companies, said the people. Microsoft has already renovated some of its buildings to add open work space in place of private offices.

      It could add amenities such as restaurants, retail spaces and public artwork, in addition to apartments to house visiting employees and interns, they said.

      It will also help to make another round of layoffs.

    Unmanageable Complexity: Globalisation and fear
    • If you look around you will see elites losing last hints of patriotism. Everything is for sale (if not sold already), and best way is to sell all to some big international bank or corporation. I am sure soon they will declare that 100% of medicine and schools must be sold and turned into commercial ventures. Same will happen with roads and every other infrastructure.

      Such behavior has simple and logical explanation - fear (with some mix of greed :-) ). Elites are just small minority and in case of any big issues they need good protection. But local protection from army and police can be quite unstable (they usually protect someone if they are 100% sure he will win).

      So, selling things (even if it produce enormous damage) add new layer of protection. Elites get assurances that buyers will provide help and will have real reasons to protect their property and people who provided them it for cheap.
