Always questioning. Increasingly skeptical of technology's expanding footprint in daily life. Former Voice of America journalist. Latest news focused on #cybersecurity, #privacy, #Linux, #Apple, #Microsoft, #Google, #AI. Toxicity is not tolerated. I don't do "shitposts." I follow like interests and will approve like interests.

Totally. This fumbling CEO went on an unbridled shopping spree, after which he promptly fell into a layoff frenzy. Shortly thereafter, he raised a white flag and split the company into three parts. Does the word "accountability" ring a bell?
