"So how do we, the people, get the IRS to review ICANN's status?"
".and had decided to lift a price freeze imposed by the Obama Administration."
Short answer is to wait for this years election and have regime change, otherwise it ain't happening.
"it didn't take a criminal mastermind to divert accounts, empty their contents, then spend big at 7-Eleven."
7-11 must be different in Japan then the US.
Other than a 6 pack it's hard to find anything that costs more than 10.
You'd need to empty the store to spend more than 1000.
The service provides an option for backups.
It's not free but it's an option.
The problem is they deleted their master account which would include whatever back up service they were using.
Most cloud providers make you step through multiple steps to delete an enterprise account up to and including multi factor validation.
Not sure how Google would win in this situation, ignore the delete request and be nailed for not deleting.
Except the delete request and be nailed for accepting the request.
In China and some other countries, however, data limitations make direct comparisons with the U.S. tricky. The World Prison Brief notes, for instance, that China’s total excludes inmates being held in “administrative detention” – a type of confinement that may house more than 650,000 additional people. Adding an additional 650,000 inmates to China’s total would place it ahead of the U.S. in terms of total incarcerated population.
"But $100m debt is not worth $100m in most situations, because of risk."
It most cases it's possible to hedge or insure that risk with a third party effectively significantly reducing that risk.
I'm not aware of any method of offloading bit coin risk in this way.
“Our recruiting websites temporarily and inappropriately solicited information concerning job applicant ethnicity, based on local government requirements in Brazil and South Africa,” Edward Barbini, IBM’s vice president of corporate communications, said in a statement to The Washington Post. “Those questions were removed immediately when we became aware of the issue and we apologize.”
The site has since switched to ethnic designations that are standard in the United States, Barbini said, such as “Asian” and “Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander.” It also allows applicants to check “unknown” or “not indicated.”
"I take your point, but if you really wanted '* Hello' or '1. Hello' in an ordinary paragraph, how do you tell Powerpoint "no, I don't effin' want that"? "
If you are in to putting paragraphs into your PowerPoint presentations you've pretty much missed the point.
Nadella had a choice to continue a failed phone strategy which at best would require $$$$$'s in continued investment with $'s in marginal return. Even in 2015 it was clear that all of the profits were going to the top two vendors with scraps left for everyone else.
Turned focus to all things cloud including cannibalizing office on shrink wrap sales for cloud subscriptions.
Easy call now but a tough sell at the time with the Windows/Office hegemony entrenched.
He made the tough call to walk away from a multi billion dollar mistake.
Should he have done a better job of messaging, absolutely but in the end he made the right call.
That's all very well and good but why send it in the middle of the night.
If it's only CYA than just wait until the next day.
It's annoying at best to see a message in the middle of the night and see it's a complete waste of time.
Good way to ensure your messages go in the ignore pile.
"I hope the CxOs will find themselves at the short end of a heavy, court-imposed fine to get those ex-employees their due."
Nice thought but that's not the way US bankruptcy works.
You'd have to prove fraud and not just incompetence or negligence.
Surprisingly high hurtle to prove in court, or maybe not since corporate law is paid for by corporations.
San Diego like much of Southern Cal is very spread out.
Quite possible to take 1-2 hours to reach the airport given the areas truly awful traffic.
Plus because of security requirements it's recommended you arrive at the airport 2 hours before the flight.
So yes it's quite possible for it to take longer to fly than to drive.
