sounds like it just needs a big crowd to turn up with beach towels and a bolt cutter

We’ve had enough of your beach-blocking shenanigans, California tells stubborn Sun co-founder: Kiss our lawsuit
Re: A very mixed reality
thats not actually true and to look at this as being a US problem that is centred on a couple of high power industries/areas is over-simplification of the problem and also inaccurate. Things are just as bad over here and where I have seen pockets of bad behaviour within industries or geographies this has been as a result of over-powerful individual personalities with poor morals with cliques forming around them that extend/protect their power as opposed to anything endemic to any one industry or area.
this looks to me like a steamroller starting to move and when it gains some real momentum it'll be going everywhere
the reality of buying a shower
I bought a shower, five years later it was so jammed up with limescale that I had to buy a new one and pay someone to install it, it would have been easier just to replace some of the parts (migrate to a newer, evolved version) but showers don't work that way so the old one became scrap and we had to do most of the work all over again.
People buy software and sometimes expect it to last forever on platforms that last forever, I don't understand why as it doesn't really work that way with anything else - food, consumer electronics, white goods, cars, even buildings need regular maintenance and updating or they become difficult to manage.
It's a shame Uber are a nasty company as they have transformed the level of service available to the consumer and if it wasn't for their abusive nature then they'd deserve to be recognised accordingly.
I've used their service a lot in multiple countries as it is a lot a) better b) cheaper c) faster than what we had before.
Despite what should be high levels of satisfaction and a likelihood of regular repeat business, I find myself regularly reading stories like this and considering alternatives.
