https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/01/05/president-obamas-amazingly-emotional-speech-on-gun-control-annotated/ >Number four, we're going to boost gun safety technology. Today, many gun injuries and deaths are the result of legal guns that were stolen or misused or discharged accidentally. In 2013 alone, more than 500 people lost their lives to gun accidents and that includes 30 children younger than five years old.
>In the greatest, most technologically advanced nation on Earth, there is no reason for this. We need to develop new technologies that make guns safer. If we can set it up so you can't unlock your phone unless you've got the right fingerprint, why can't we do the same thing for our guns?
This is a solid case... Fingerprint Cards has almost a complete dominance within the rapidly growing smartphone fingerprint sensor market segment, and even the giant Samsung might have to make the switch from Synaptics to Fingerprint in order to meet the fingerprint sensor quality requirements of Android Pay. The competitors so far are just inferior. And with expansions into other market segments such as tablets, smartcards, cars, and in the future maybe even guns apparently? This stock has yet to hit its peak. The estimated profit per share for 2016 is 40-50 SEK which puts the P/E ratio at 11-14 so it's not even overvalued if you believe in this company and its technology.
>Today, I was out shopping with my wife. My fingerprint didn't get recognized multiple times and the transaction didn't go thru when it finally worked. So I used another card on samsung pay and it worked to save me from total embarrassment. Then at another store, my fingerprint did not get recognized for 5 consecutive times and it wiped out the whole samsung pay. I could not pay any longer for the day because I don't carry wallet any longer. I am 100% dependent on Galaxy S6. So for the rest of the day, my wife had to pay with her plastic... Comment too long.

gun owners would never adopt finger based scanners for guns. the only people who would be cucked enough to try are Californians after Feinstein inevitably forces it. But Cali shooters is such a niche market you'll barely see anything in return.
Been at my current job for about a year and a half, got bored of it a long time ago. I work at an enterprise software (SaaS) company as a professional services engineer (implementations, custom development, face time with clients, data migrations, etc.), have been promoted once since I got hired.
I'd like to start applying for a new job with the intention of becoming a software developer. I know I have the skills and would do well in a job like this, but considering that my background isn't purely that of a traditional software developer but more that of a technical...

>>1027526 I have some experience with this but it was not positive.
First off, I've only ever had two interviews where I had to do actual coding (most places will accept lies at face value).
One was stupid and basically judged on speed alone. It basically a how-fast-can-you-drag-shit-around-in-the-WebForms-designer test. Place really gave off a chop shop vibe (scattered laptops in a renovated apartment building full of hipsters) and they failed me because I knew how to do cross-browser compatible layout without the designer.
Other one I showed off a Windows application that I put together for my side business. Basically it combined inventory with financials and was written because I couldn't find anything out there that could do both. They just weren't impressed. Nagged about my table structure, nagged about my icons, nagged about using ADO, ignored custom controls, ignored plug-in architecture, etc.
I really wish it was different but I really haven't seen any evidence that development teams are looking for anybody with even a marginal level of skill. They've usually got a clusterfuck of a system that nobody is allowed to question any aspect of its design or do anything to really improve. Complete paralysis on the best days, a deluge of coping with the same bugs over and over on the worst. Truth be told, I left half the jobs I landed and the other half I was fired while interviewing elsewhere.
>>1027557 Thanks for your response. I was kind of afraid of this. Mainly I'm just trying to make myself more marketable as a pure dev guy coming from a half dev half client-facing half app maintenance/etc situation without getting any more education/credentials because in my opinion it just pales in comparison to the experience you can get on the job (or building your own thing), it's tough.
>>1027653 Absolutely. Some classes are worthwhile but necessity is the mother of invention. Shame that it's actively discouraged in many places.
I'm not saying not to do a demo project. I'm saying don't do it solely for job hunting's sake. Reaction to it might help screen out lousy jobs and it'll provide something interesting for to do if you find yourself in one anyway.
I'm thinking about applying to business school after completing my postgraduate degree in international political economy.
I'm an all-around competitive candidate (3.8 GPA, GMAT 700, four years of work experience, volunteering work, travel, multilingual, etc). I'm just concerned of age. I'm currently 27 and will be turning 28 during my application.
You think age will be a factor?
By the time I graduate, I will still be earning more than 90% of people in my demographic. So, I'm strongly leaning towards applying. What does /biz/ think?
You should be fine. Average graduate student is around 33~, so you're well below that. From the looks of things you're an excellent candidate (good GPA, actual experience, multilingual and okay with traveling) so just pick out a good school that's not a joke.
I was going to start a blog on Patreon, only to discover this when I was reading the fine print:

That is a fair criticism, I was not really sure what User Generated Content meant, and now that I've read through again, I am still not.
It's the 11th heading as far as I can tell. If you or anyone else can make more sense of it than I can, I'd appreciate it.
I've heard of people doing Paypal tip jar type set-ups, but those never seem terribly profitable... before I go down that route anyway, I'd like to know for certain that Patreon is not an option for me.
My guess is that User Generated Content simply means 'my registration info when I sign up to Patreon'. Can anyone support this definition? It sounds like it's just a serpentine rewording of the usual 'we will not share your personal information with any third party except with your permission' kind of thing.
It's time for me to get very serious about becoming immensely wealthy. From what I understand there are two fairly common ways people make a fortune, owning a bussiness and playing with markets. I plan to do both. What are some ways I can be sure to make?
>>1027432 Talk to a lawyer who has experience working for the IRS - there's a few in my area. See what advice he offers. Pending that, maybe get a financial adviser, maybe just put it in my bank account myself and shift it to vanguard or other low-risk investments. Don't talk to another sole. Probably get a bit paranoid so look into moving to gated community and/or hiring private security for the short-medium term
Hi, I'm opening an LLC within the next couple weeks in illinois and am having trouble deciding if the name I want to take is a smart choice. Here's the scenario, a guy already in my state owns a company called JasonTheSmokeman. After hyping up the name I want with all my supporters, JacobTheSmokeman now I'm worried that he could possibly press some kind of charges towards me. What can I do trademark/patent-wise to keep myself out of trouble?

Ok, so I live in Texas. From what I read, you cannot have you wages garnished for debts(other than child support alimony, taxes or student loans). 401ks are impenetrable from what I read. I make $100k per year. I am being sued by my exwife over custody. Since I basically can't lose my aoftware engineering job, I am thinking about loading up about $50-80k in credit card and personal loan debt to fight her and stop paying. I want to pay on my car and house, but not on any unsecured debt. I also intend to to owe several companies a little money instead of few companies a lot.... Comment too long.

Texas is a homestead state. Texas and Florida are the only ones. You can put your money into a house and it's untouchable. This is the reason lots of criminals from all over will move to Florida. Pretty sure OJ Simpson did this during his trial too.
My battleplan for wealth: (and by wealth I mean a liveable wage. wealth can come after, atm I'm making 15k and this shit needs to stop)
my background is design/advertising. i bring solid skills in that department.
THE PLAN: - self teach python - create some apps (simple stuff, but hopefully responsive, wellconceptualized and visually neat and clean) - create a website for my company - launch apps commercially - start doing basic marketing to gain freelance clients (lower level programming jobs) - simultaneously apply for internships as software developer
what you say biz? don't laugh at me, i don't care about making 100k. I'm fine with 40k but a moderately respectable career.
Once those things are achieved I will either a) do a masters in design b) do a BA in CS

>>1027368 >I've never understood why people get associates degrees of they're going to get a bachelor's anyway
Cheaper, can transfer credits, less intensive for people who are/feel they're not smart enough to take on a 4 year school right away, gives you time to decide if you want to do it or not before dropping $10k
