  • Retaliation? North Korea Internet goes dark [View news story]
    Is there anything cool anymore that hasn't been ruined by people who can't behave?

  • North Korea denies cyber attack, proposes joint probe [View news story]
    The fact that some stoner movie created this much trouble amazes me. Not to mention years ago the Team America movie (another stoner flick) killed Kim Jun Il and you didn't hear a peep out of North Korea or anyone else. The real crime is Hollywood stealing plots from past movies over and over again.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Global Shares Rise On Upbeat Fed [View article]
    Same here soda jerk. It seems the whole redesign is to place emphasis on the skyscraper banner advertisement to appear top-left. For me, the "flow" of the home page seems disjointed compared to the previous version.

    This whole Sony flop movie terrorist North Korea thing has seemed fishy since the beginning. The following is a comment I came across that is interesting.

    Edit: don't get too excited Bob123, GOP is "Guardians of Peace." Whatever that is.

    This smells like a hoax. The two messages that reference The Interview do not seem to be written in the same type of broken English as the original GOP message, and Sony was lying to the media just the day before about using Amazon servers in a DDoS attack on the torrent sites. A few questions that no one is answering..
    1) Sony is hacked, but the personal computers of the ROGEN and the FRANCO are not? They have better security?
    2) Who released the footage of the death scene from The Interview?
    3) Critics have already panned the film. Is it worth more to Sony as a viral story now than an actual film, especially to deflect their accountability for bad security practices?
    4) Homeland Defense says it's not a credible threat. Do they know it's a spin maneuver by Sony?
    5) Have we all forgotten that the ROGEN is stealing a plot device from Team America? Kim Jong Il is killed in that movie, no? Did we have any threats like this at that time?
    6) Would The Interview have been less funny if it was about a fictional dictator and country? If so, someone better think twice about their comedy writing skills.
    7) Guardians of Peace are now talking about blowing up theatres? It's like they named themselves knowing what type of smear campaign an American company would try.

    Would someone PLEASE get a linguistics analyst on this. The message and broken English are not consistent, and in my eyes this is an agent provocateur, either for Sony or against North Korea, but it's not the same GOP."

  • Grocery stores 2.0: Place your bets [View news story]
    I'll throw a different reason why we order from Amazon Fresh 3x4 per month...

    Service.

    We jumped on Amazon Fresh as payback for the sh*t customer service by our local grocery store and aren't looking back. The Amazon drivers are friendly and eager to please.

    A good unintended consequence is we now frequent smaller, local businesses for non-staple items such as meat/seafood, beer/wine & spirits, flowers and bakery complete with pleasant, appreciative business owners.

    For us, service wins out over price and convenience.

    Your politics-first at all-cost comments make this place a drag. You're not alone. Others do it too. WSB is becoming like every other message board out there these days.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Dollar General May Have To Divest 4,000+ Stores [View article]
    Personally, I blame Idi Amin or anyone currently not in office. Clearly they're really smart if they can't undo or fix such inept Bush admin policies. Otherwise, works well, thanks for asking :-)

  • Goldman Sachs Analysis Shows Just How Low American's Wages Are [View article]
    "It's already well-known that the minimum wage in the United States is woefully inadequate for supporting one's self, let alone a family."

    No Sh*t. That's not what it's for. It's for young, transitioning or first-time workers to learn (new) job skills and how to behave in the workplace. At least that's what it used to be for. Why don't people call this what it is; woefully inadequate skills and questionable decision-making by individuals who prefer to complain rather than learn a trade, gain marketable skills or crap out kids they can't afford.

    I'm aware there are instances where this does not apply so relax.

    berb,

    You might be interested to know that Mr. Musk is a supporter of Rep. Dana Rohrbacher and attends fundraisers for him. He's a Republican by the way.

    He was in town 2 months ago. Nice guy.
