What's the point?

What is the point of putting out something that is twice as expensive and only gives 37 percent bump in speed over the competitor? How many people do we think are willing to shell out the money, instead of wait with what they have already for a... read more

Since the layoff announcement it's been Marshall law! People are doing things and getting away with it. It's worse than New Orleans after Katrina. The managers make us fight for higher positions on the keepers board. Only the strong will survive the... read more
