The obvious one:
E-Corp (aka. Evil Corp).
First they acted all evil, and then they wanted to control the world.
A brilliant business model tbh., but not very humanistic one.2
Why is it so hard to just build machines that work without all this ideological bullshit? Code doesn't care if politics==true. The world is scary enough without you assholes making modern life a data minefield for even the most educated experts, and taking advantage of the ignorance of everyone else. Fuck you.
I just wanna <look at web pages> without having to consider, counteract, or silently assist some fucking regime. Why is EVERYTHING this way? Everything is a back door or a data mine or a political statement? This isn't a fucking art piece! It's not your espionage tool, fucking codes in invisible ink and tiny cameras and shit everywhere! It's a <web browser>, and if it does ANYTHING besides <browse the web> that I didn't explicitly tell it to do, you better better not be the one who made it. Because if you did, you are what's wrong with the world.7
Everybody dream of making own version of google company,that is paradise for every programmer. Atleast its advertised in that way.
But eventually when s/he start own company it eventually become evil corp.
Reality is harsh.3
devJackpot in my mailbox this morning! Coffee, Evil Corp stickers (and others), and my free stress ball! Thanks devRant @dfox and @trogus for the fun!5
After following the recent events and announcements, I'm thinking
Is Google seriously turning into an AI overload..?
What happened to "Don't be Evil"..?6
Do you connect Evil corp from Mr. Robot with Dell? E is actially same in logos of those two companies. Well, I own dell laptop and still think it's good gear. Is it making me evil? :)5
I just created an Oracle account just to comment on a mysql bug report in order to inform people to use mariadb as a fix ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
^w should delete back a word, not to the beginning of the line! This is broken because instead of readline, Oracle's mysql-client uses editline.
Yet why the fuck do you compile mysql-client with editLine wrapper that breaks the common keybindings?
Licenses is why. Oracle wants to avoid using GNU GPL, and readline uses just that, so they use editline since it has BSD. And they just don't seem to give a damn if it breaks usability.1
Why Evil Corp did not have its servers on a cloud provider?
(This question is about any big corporation with a whole bunch of servers. I quoted Evil Corp because the question came thinking about it.)16
dont be evil isnt it the philosophy of one of the biggest e corp in the history who was bashed for its monopoly. just saying5
Anyone else having random apps stealthily installed on their Android phone? It's annoying! If this happens not only on my phone, I think Google is up for something fishy.4
