Re: Silly way to drive customers away
Seagate have specifically said that they have no SMR in their IronWolf and IronWolf Pro ranges. I suppose that's something, at least.

To be fair, OR's FTTP seems so far to be pretty reliable.
Had only the one episode of huge packet losses (like 50%) which both myself and the ISP couldn't explain.
Different routers, direct PPPoE connections, nothing made a difference. All diags OK at the ISP end.
Turns out a hard reset and factory default on the Huawei ONT sorted it all out. I suspect they may be a little crappier than I would like and I wish OR would allow me to use my own (not sure if ONT configurations are a Industry Standard thing or not?)
At least now I know it's a thing...
“How we fix it”? Could it be that there is nothing to fix?
I don’t understand why it is that this is seen as a problem. Where are all the women crying out for the opportunity to be given a job in IT?
If they exist, then by all means then you have a problem to fix.
It appears that women may well just not be interested in it and that’s anyone’s prerogative. It sounds like you’ve gone out of your way to foster an equality of opportunity and should be commended for it.
I suppose you could FORCE women into a career in IT somehow but that seems rather counterproductive.
Just because there aren't as many women in IT doesn't necessarily mean they are struggling to get into it! For heaven's sake!
Maybe there ARE barriers, I don't know. But this "research" looks at the end state and then infers how we got there. This narrative seems only too common and it really helps nobody.
Also "If all OECD countries matched Sweden's levels of female employments, GDP would be boosted by $6tn." I'm not sure what this means. Are women better and more productive than men? In that case, would the industry not have cottoned on to it and employed more of them?
I'm honestly really confused.
Pretty sure EV batteries are rated for much more than 1000 cycles...
Regarding the “hosepipe charging cable”... you’re still in the wrong mind set.
The idea is that the car is charging at a sensible rate whilst you’re either sleeping or at work. Rapid charging should be the exception rather than the rule.
Having bought an EV 9 months ago (and I have a 100 mile daily round trip commute), I am truly flummoxed by the amount of resistance from ICE drivers.
I would be surprised if this insidious management culture was unique to Boeing so I’m rather hoping this will be a watershed moment for the whole industry and Airbus, Bombardier, Embraer, etc take a good hard look at their own processes.
Airbus need Boeing as much as Boeing need Airbus.
I do not wish to see Boeing sink because of this, but the senior management really should be behind bars. There needs to be severe punishment.
The Tesla Model 3 is probably one of the most desirable cars out there right now.
The reviews are universally great. Owners rave about them.
It appears they can't make enough for all the reservations and they're selling like hot cakes.
"If you build it, they will come" and all that....
And they're still in trouble?
I have to admit I am probably with you on this one.
The problem is that Trump is doing the right thing in the wrong way. As someone stated earlier, the tariffs themselves are not the end of the world, the industry will adapt after a somewhat painful period and overcome the difficulties by either finding elsewhere cheap to move to or bring back activity.
The problem is the uncertainty. Will he keep these tariffs for 10 years thus making the move worthwhile or will he change his mind in the next tweet, thus making it possible to "ride it out"?
I am sure the man is not stupid, however much I disagree with him, but he certainly is not a stable person with a coherent policy. That may be good to put his adversaries on the back foot during negotiations but it's causing havoc to anyone wanting to plan 5, 10 or 20 years ahead.
That's really interesting but impossible, in practice.
When your plane takes off, you "may harm others", for example. The ability to harm others is an unfortunate inevitability of most of modern life's actions.
We can try and reduce the risk of said harm (until the minute improvements in risk lead to unacceptable reductions in efficiency) but we will never make them disappear.
The trick is to be able to decide when risk is "low enough" to be acceptable.
