YAMM - yet another Muskamania Mutter
What is it with this whack a mole guy? Is he Trump’s illegitimate spawn or just brain dead?

I have several reasons this makes perfect sense:
1. A number of app developers either don't exist anymore, or are too lazy to update after getting our hard-earned
2. There's a dearth of apps that just are unstable after recent updates to iOS and their developers seem to not care
3. This will hopefully force developers to not drop a product without a sunset period.
I lead a SW company and we work hard to keep our SW updated - regardless if it is browser or mobile based. Reputational damange by being removed from the App Store should hopefully wake some of these developers up.
in trying to navigate the morass of the idiot SW many local surgeries are ramming down our throats so we never speak to a human, our NHS surgery in South Bucks has been doing this to me for weeks! it all comes from being instructed to use their app after a SMS to get a blood test. not being able to book one until SEVEN weeks out, it also had a.n.other link. upon checking that link, the chemist wants to charge me £89 for the same test. i clicked no and now the computer is reminding me i have a pending transaction daily.
FFS why don't they instead pour the money into visa changes, international recruiting, and build some new hospitals.
Taxpayers have suffered FAR TOO MUCH with luvvie consultantcy after luvvie consultantcy coming in, making grandios announcements and SFA comes from it. Then they're fired and a.n.other luvvie consultantcy gets hired.
HIRE MORE STAFF, not paying luvvie consultantcies
Muck's space junk has ruined a number of evenings of telescope watching with their annoying space junk trails. It is past time to remove them and free the heavens.
If he is so desperate to be Samuel L. Jackson from The Kings Men, he can build a smaller number of geostationary satellites and give them away for free.
B’locks to yet another clusterflock courtesy of the government boffins who can’t share my damn hospital records in Berkshire to my GP in south Buckinghamshire. I had to copy pages of records and email to my GP surgery or they’d have nary a clue why/what was done for the 10 days I was on ward at Wexham Park.
In the end yet again the taxpayers get screwed for billions and the luvvies will laugh all the way to Monte Carlo
With more than 20 years under my belt, I have twice stupidly been brought in for interviews at the UKs biggest (based in Hatfield), fully automated food warehouse/delivery company. After the interview from hell the first time 4 years agi, I made it extremely clear I would not go throught that again last year.
What happens? I rock up on Zoom, undergo 7 hours of non-stop interviews (vs. F2F previously) only to have it sprung on me, you've still got to do our panel interview. Said company panel interview gives you 1 hour to prep, then you present and through totally B.S. decisions invisible to you, they give you the thumbs down with NO feedback.
Total. Utter. Moppets.
On every level.
When Phil was being harassed by the US Gov’t goon squad there was a legal defence fund setup that by buying a T-shirt with the algorithm on it you contributed. I wore it proudly to conferences and through airport security regularly to taunt officers.
I use OpenPGP on all my devices still to this day!
Any merger/acquisition that materially affects employee benefits is a very naughty move BEFORE the ink has dried. And an especially naughty move would be either company materially or directly affecting the other until the merger/acquisition is complete could be legally dangerous!
I hope the affected Arm employees are speaking to solicitors!
