In a press release, the foundation stated its aim is “to fight against surveillance capitalism, and offer a counterbalance to Big Tech influence, in the smart home — by focusing on privacy, choice, and sustainability for smart home users.”

Happily spending money on my monthly subscription. ✊

I was surprised to see the default compose file not force the user to specify an external directory for the database.

For people who’ve had the switch flipped in their heads that labor generates all wealth, which is being distributed unequally, this is just confirmation that it was the right move.

A bit of a click bait title. They said they would hit Israel’s nuclear facilities if Israel attacks Iran’s.

mismanaged finances by post-secondary institutions in the country.

That’s a funny way to spell “chronic underfunding.”

Whether they’re subjects to the CCP or not, the money they’ve collected came from surplus Chinese workers created but did not receive. So yeah, it’s a symptom of underpaid labor.

So this fucker is part of why such a hike was rejected in the past according to the article.

Plex or Jellyfin. I’m currently using Plex but will likely be migrating to Jellyfin at some point.

This doesn’t even affect most workers who get RSUs. Only people whose shares might grow by more than 250K in one year. Not whose shares are worth over 250K.

Can’t do it at will when it contains third party proprietary code. They have to reimplement what Insyde wrote for them first.

But otherwise yes.

That’s because you haven’t met them yet. Once you do, your friends will do all these things while sitting next to you. :D

250K in capital gains

avidamoeba,
@avidamoeba@lemmy.ca avatar

That was my initial thought, before I read it again and realized it’s 250K capital gains. This isn’t triggered by having say 500K RSUs vesting. It’s triggered when your shares’ value grows by >250K in a year. 🥹

So while I agree with you on RSUs, this isn’t even touching that for almost all people but perhaps some execs.

Anyone complaining about this is publicly admitting to their selfishness and greed.

It’s a perfect tool. It let’s some morons come out crying which should only galvanize the opinion that the tax is justified. As we’re demonstrating in this thread. The most profitable move for the people affected by this would be to shut the hell up and come the next hike play the “well we paid our fair share” line. Which would of course be bullshit but it would sound more plausible.

I think it depends on the goal. If I’m trying to stop a corporation from doing something profitable a large union, one that contains most corpo workers, including the ones producing this profit, can strike, halting the production that generates this profit. The union could do this for a moral reason. If the union however contains for the sake of argument 1% of the workers and none of the ones doing the work in question, then staging a protest can’t force a stop to the morally reprehensible production. It also makes this 1% an easy target to get rid of thus making it harder to organize more workers needed to stop production. So if I wanted to gain this power over the corpo, I would probably protest outside of union capacity.

E: They’re already gone…

This is probably why they called the cops, so they can fire them for an obvious cause and not have to deal with any questions.

I think I found one that has the pins. It’s by OWC and I think they’ve “solved” the fact that it can be dangerous if the wrong thing plugs into it by permanently tethering it to their USB-C cable.
