David Bowie (Jan 08, 1947-Jan 10, 2016)

Today i pay tribute to David Bowie, a lot of us that grew up in the era when MTV still played music videos know him from that time. Even though he had hits in the previous years like FAME, video made him even more popular. Songs for videos like
 Modern love

 little china girl
 

 lets dance
 

solidified him as a bonafide 80's star.

Lets not forget White Christmas sung with Bing Crosby
that will forever be played somewhere. He also
dabbled in acting playing in such films as:
The Prestige, The Man That Fell To Earth and Labyrinth
 Rest In Peace David you will be missed
 but your songs will live on forever

Sign Of The Times

If you are a ptc site regular then you know what crowdflower is, a tab that you do little tasks for points. the tasks are easy somewhat and most involve searches on Google or Bing but today it was different.


Today the task was identifying voice commands for help to improve a cars onboard system. I  was into the task and they were quite interesting until I came upon this section




I'm no prude, i listen to the hip hop but seeing this was offensive to me, any spelling of the N-Word is offensive to me.  The fact that this was used offended me, the fact that someone thought it was okay to put it offended me so i sent a support ticket hoping to have it fixed...and the next day it was resolved but not in the way i thought.

here is the response to my complaint from the owners of crowdflower



Pretty nonchalant if you ask me. consider appending a explicit content warning to the task? how about taking the offensive part down, how about removing it. how about giving a Damn!!!

So what drives business is profit, they need to make money more money. staying consistent isn't good enough and losing money is a definite no no so there are ways a business can make more money and its by giving you less product but keeping the product the same price or increasing it.


 case in point spaghetti products by Campbell have shrunk noticeably but the price has not. we are paying more essentially because we are getting less product so its sneaky with a price increase but a product decrease.  spaghettios and franks use to be 14 3/4oz(418g) now they are 14oz(397g). what's the big deal you say? well its not a big deal but its the principal of it and another way big business is fleecing us
