Re: Intel lied at CES about TDP?

Both off-topic and on-topic at the same time, and of course, highly opinionated on my part:

The problem is a universal one -- the driving force for things these days is often not technological innovation (as in TRUE innovation, i.e. human beings, specifically engineers, saying "we need to improve thing X to solve problem Y"), but rather marketing innovation. The driving force is now stock market share price and what company shareholders want -- and if the company doesn't make a bunch of fat cats happy, they cry and whine anyway (usually threatening to sue the company which they've invested in, citing "company did not meet X/Y/Z demands/expectations").

Nothing pisses me off more than people who invest in something that's hit-or-miss but always want it to be hit -- it's 100% akin to a gambler going to a casino and throwing a hissy fit because he didn't walk out with more money than came in with. I wish I had saved all the news articles about this in the past 5-10 years, but it's becoming more prevalent. Too many people want to "get rich", rather than just live reasonably.

ENTJ-type personalities, usually bordering on psychopathic combined with greed, capitalist focus, and "f*** everyone else" thought process will be the destruction of our country, if not our planet. Marketing folks often fall into the same category -- they skew/manipulate/deceive in any way/shape/form to meet some kind of goal (which is usually not set by them). It saddens me how so much of the world today lacks moral fibre, or at least that classic socially-enforced "don't be a dick" belief. I'm not Mr. Morals myself, but I'm almost Japanese in the sense that I think of how my actions affect other people before thinking about how my actions benefit (or affect) myself.

Uh oh, I used to be an ENTJ until I graduated college, at which point I became an INTJ. Your Executive Officers description sounds like scenes from American Psycho.

*grin* Well, everyone is different. For example I come off as an extrovert (fairly talkative and can deal with social situations) but am actually highly introverted. I'd probably be classified by Jung as ISTJ. What can I say, I just hate seeing self-centred bastards thinking about nobody but themselves, then patting themselves on the back for their efforts. Disgusts me.
