Re: Travel light (March 7)

I know I’ve written you before, but once again I just have to say you’re the best. I loved “”Travel light””. It was the morning laugh for me. Keep up the good

Re: Act accordingly (March 6)

We spend so much time in Canada watching what the U.S. does that some critical questions never get answered. Is Canada such a poor economic power that it has to allow the United States Department of Justice to deal with a company that is accused of breaking Canada’s laws as well?

I have been trying to promote free market economic ideals in high-yech in Canada for a number of years. It is a problem in Canada since the competition bureau is under Industry Canada. This is a direct conflict of interest since Industry Canada promotes big-business monopolies while the Competition Act is aimed at creating fair competition between a more robust and distributed economy.

Re: Training tries to lure women in IT market (March 5)

This is a brilliant idea especially now when the number of unemployed IT workers, most of them with university education, is far greater than ever before in history.

I would also recommend to train girls and women to become nuclear physicists. I bet that they represent even less than 30 percent of the nuclear physicists graduates! Let’s train them in three-four weeks for this field.

And being a man, working in IT, let me offer myself to be trained as a fashion model. Men in this field are very much underrepresented. So by giving up my IT job I create a vacancy for a woman! (But it must be a well paying fashion model job with a pension because I have 3 children.)

Re: Steal this article (March 1)

Not too long ago I sent you my comments on Rogers’ proposed bit capping issue. As you replied, several good points were made. However, after reading this article today, I’m wondering if the answer to “”inadequate old copyright laws”” isn’t just simply another call to the industry to apply bit capping. The only issue is, Why should Rogers or Bell be the ones to benefit from content being downloaded bit by bit? Shouldn’t the various copyright artists also have a piece of that pie?

Re: McKinley’s uphill battle (Feb. 22)

I was very surprised to see you miss the point on this article, as you quote customers that compare an AMD chip, obviously a front end server processor at the most, with a 64 bit back end processor. Completely different processors and usages. Kind of misleading, don’t you think?

I’m very disappointed with your publication, from which I usually appreciate the articles.
