Where the wild things are
"We're actively looking at ways to preserve jobs where it makes business sense to do so"
Where as before we were quite silly, and just hired to hire folk.
No, the ax swings without pity and severance is just a pittance to keep the gore of it all from public view.
Tread carefully, as merger execs are wild creatures.

They are asking too much of one AI-car to make decisions.
It would be beneficial to let AI cars share information with each other, to coordinate actions and give heads-up alerts to hazards.
There is safety in the herd. But they must be smart enough to avoid the lemming cliffs.
Throwing the wedding rice, a new future awaits.
Today's IBM and Notes, has been working about as well as the partnership of water with a grease fire.
HCL at least wants (loves?) Notes. You'd have to be crazy in love to PAY for the privilege of maintaining it in the present condition.
Notes and IBM will likely still remain friends.
Forget ripping off brains for AI. Butterflies and worms could lead us to self-repairing intelligent robots, says prof
Biological robots already exist if you consider the genetic work done with crops and bacteria.
Algorithms must be able to bridge the physical as much as the logical in order to execute. Organisms ultimately end up crowd sourcing outcomes among all their brethren cells birthed from the same DNA instructions.
The body doesn't work from one member and neither should the next tier of AI

No, sometimes clothes are your friend
It's like inviting the nearly naked people you see in National Geographic into your residence to do everyday drudgery.
Good nudity has a context. It's hard (but not that type of hard) to fathom the viewing of household chores done in the nude, as the most efficient means of getting visual pleasure and/or a day's work done.
Keep the nudity fun, not laborious.

It's not the software, it's the owners.
Code can be farmed from anywhere by any company.
The bottom line is that governments prefer access to the people responsible, when or if something were to be found that violated their laws.
Russia rarely (more like never) extradites people for such crimes. This level of tolerable abuse makes trust, closer to the blind or visually impaired variety.
What we say vs What we do
'...to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful'."
The world is a both a good and evil place. Inventors don't get to choose how a tool is utilized, only suggest.
The crime is that Google is afraid to make information accessible and useful even with itself.
In practice, the mission is moral on the label, but monetized at the core. Unfortunately, a new label may be in order, as the moral slant appears to have become old tech.
A reason? How about wearing white after Labor Day.
One of the more absurd reasons is on the suspicion that the driver was not buckled up (click-it or ticket).
The only reason "your safety" stopped being a choice was the police's need to snoop and the insurance companies desire to raise rates.
It's uneasy to share the community with law enforcement as friends, when a "cotton candy" misunderstanding can put you in jail with thousands in legal fees.
Re: Let's be fair to MS (thought experiment)
Stability for an OS, doesn't equate to revenue as it once did. Issues ensure that you remain paranoid enough to stay on contract.
Windows 10 is now just a software casino game, with the product ensured to be as stable as the satisfaction with the latest earnings report.

Sorry, I just manipulate people
Leaders of large numbers don't need to know all the details, that's for middle management. High ranking folk focus on the big picture.
A picture so BIG apparently usb sticks, computers, IoT devices are quantum particles, which can't be observed without meddling with the desired result.
