For-profit retail banks are disgusting. Wells Fargo is just the most galling example.

It sounds like you'll fit into NYC a lot better. That city doesn't have time for complacency or space for slackers. You'll have more career opportunities in a few short years there than you'd get in a lifetime in Ohio. Be prepared to walk everywhere and lose all that weight you've put on from sitting on your ass in a car for the last four years.

mk is there a way to report spam comments, like the above?

I agree. This article actually had the unintended effect of lowering my impression of Mother Jones, and raising my impression of some of the companies and people discussed.

OpenStreetMap is my jam. I'm curious to see what you come up with when it's done. If you're looking for a fun way to contribute, check out the app StreetComplete. It lets you do little QA tasks just while you walk around your town.

That makes it either a terrible or excellent advertising campaign. Or you may just not be the target audience, so you didn't pick up the message they're trying to send.

They can't survive. The fares are heavily subsidized by VC money. If they run out of this, or have to pay their drivers a living wage, then their higher prices will drive away all the users. On-demand transportation like this collapses without exploitation of the (human or robot) drivers.

Windows 10 itself is spyware, so you're just choosing a different master at that point.

Yeah, that is certainly a remote possibility with proprietary firmware on any network card. There is little to no evidence of actual cases of such an attack, and even if they were, they'd be very targeted.

They (like all Windows PC manufacturers) bundle some crap like that. It won't affect you if you wipe the computer after buying it and installing Linux though.
