All my stars are for bowel of dicks.
Like Redmond in the 90s, but sunnier, less cocaine, and thousands of times more pretentious.
Scrotum H. Vainglorious
The pretentiousness is off the scale and SV has totally gentrified The Bay Area into a meca of popped collar code-bros. I hope they get rocked by a 9.0 earthquake soon.
Can anyone link to a single example of genuine brogrammer? I'm not finding anything but obviously staged shots.
Every comp sci coder I've ever known (and all they ones THEY know) fall somewhere between D&D nerd and Steve Jobs twat.
The only brogrammer types I've known are dudes who are very enthusiastic about computers, but don't have any real knowledge or skill. Lots of guys with "great ideas for a website" or who can "do things with computers." Never met one who can do any of the meaningful work themselves.
1) I want 'bowel of dicks' to become a linked tag ASAP
2) I want to see a flyover of the Chinese sweatshops where they make their products, or the offshore banks where they hide their money.
Say what you will about MS or Gates, but he gave back.
Jobs, evidently, was a cunt from beginning to end.
Not only that he exploited a loop-hole so he never had to have plates on his car so he could intentionally park in handicapped spaces.
I'm glad he was so glad he decided to try homeopathy to cure his cancer, stupid piece of shit.
Huh. I never knew Jobs was a huge douche. I just thought his fanboys were.
It certainly looks like a monument to corporate hubris more than anything. I hate Apple.
I bought an iPad 4 two years ago ONLY because I'm a huge board gamer and at the time all the ports were only coming out on iPad. It was $330 at the time.
Couple months ago, dropped it 3 feet onto a tile floor. Half the screen shattered and it only displays a white screen with black bar now. Apple has a flat fee for "repairing" iPads (just replacing it) by charging you pretty much full price for a new one. Right now the "repair" fee for an iPad 4 is $299, making it pointless. And they intentionally do their best to make it impossible to repair on your own, gluing the case over the innards instead of screwing it on like every other sensible electronics manufacturer.
That was the first and last Apple product I will ever buy. Fuck them forever.
Unlike the factories that make Apple products, this facility doesn't have any suicide nets to prevent people from jumping off the roof and killing themselves.
The whole design is insular and exclusive, reflecting both the Apple culture and its weakness.
I can't wait to see what over-priced shit they roll out next.
Their marketing is genius though. Laptops as fashion/lifestyle accessories.
I wouldn't mind seeing them tank.
That's what Beats by Doctor Dre did to headphones unbalanced and overpriced, but they're fashionable.

What would be really great is if the construction company that installed the batteries in the building made it so the batteries could never be replaced without tearing the building down and building a new one. In 5 years.
Something something arcology ... corporate dystopia .... shadowrun?
