        Turns out, the Bureau of Labor Statistics underestimated job growth from June to September by 626,000 jobs — the largest underestimation ever.


        It should be noted the boss of BLS worked at The Heritage Foundation and was a Trump appointee. I am sure it is just a coincidence though this screw up happened right before the elections...​

          No, no, we were told the election results were due to mama grizzlies not wanting their kids thrown in concentration camps, or something.

            • Well I guess what sic and others are always hinting at is true- you can’t trust the government because they’re lying.

                • Holy ****. The BLS under the same dipsh--t underestimated job losses in April 2020 by 922,000. So, when TFG is in, they underestimate losses. When Biden is POTUS, they underestimate gains. Cool.

                  • Ok, this is actually a big deal:


                    NEW: Apple has announced plans to let customers repair their own phones in a monumental shift from its current repair policies.

                    Apple Will Tell You How to Fix iPhones, Sell Parts to the General Public
                    In a major shift in policy, Apple says it will sell the parts and tools necessary for DIY iPhone repair.

                    • Times are a-changin'...

                      This week I learned that I'm the recipient of a 17% raise, effective immediately. Kind of tells me that the people running the show in the logistics world are seeing the writing on the wall regarding people wanting to actually feel their worth on the job... Hopefully this movement can continue =)

                        It's a huge win for right-to-repair, but I still have some reservations on their ulterior motive....

                          well of course there's an ulterior motive, profit. BUt i'm not entirely sure it's a bad thing. I think everyone gets what they want here, right?

                          COnsumers don't have to shell out for a refurb or expensive repairs by sending the phone back to apple or leaving it with an apple shop. Apple, in exchange, gets to charge you money for the kits at a (probably) inflated price relative to what the repair shops get and take in the profits. Essentially they're trading discounted wholesale part prices to repair shops for consumer pricing to us idiots. And I'm not even sure that's going to hurt the repair shops in the long run. It means more of them can start up and offer services.

                          Worst case for apple, more people brick their phones and have to buy new ones. That said, I think it's a massive step in the right direction. I'm not going to spend a gazillion dollars on a new phone because a part broke on mine. I will, however, look at repairing things and depending on the complexity and risk, do it myself.

                            Congratulations. I think that's great.

                            For people willing to work, right now and for the foreseeable future, it's a great time. Jobs are plentiful and employers are going to be willing to pay for good people.

                            I don't want to pee in your cheerios regarding your employer's motive, but I would guess this is less about them wanting you to feel your worth and more about them recognizing that they have a good employee, and one that they don't want to, or can't afford to lose right now.

                            Either way, what do you care. The cash is going in your pocket.
                            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
