Not sure what you meant there #1 but as an app developer and computer science major I can tell you that the cable is fastest 999 out of 1000 times. Most Ethernet cables and most quality routers today push data through at 1 gigabit a second. Wireless N can't reach half that. Wireless is convenient but has serious security flaws and is much slower though AC narrows the gap.
Well OP, it could be worse. F.ex. You'll graduate from an IT-course or that she'll graduate with better grades than you! (sorry, couldn't find a better word/synonym than IT-course from my half sleeping brain, therefore, there is a chance this comment might not make sense. I should really sleep...
What really sucks is there are brilliant people that couldn't afford to go to school because either their parents or them couldn't afford to send them or they had to work instead. Then there are kids who's parents are loaded, so they get to go to school for 6 years, but don't know basic everyday things! Your level of intelligence shouldn't be based on if you could afford to go to college or not! It's sad!
79- that's like saying you shouldn't know how to follow a recipe or how to use a mixer if you're not studying culinary. Everyone and almost every job field uses computers nowadays, so yes, EVERYONE should know what an Ethernet cable is! And 49- I'm guessing you had to Google "what is an Ethernet cable"?
If you two compete for the same job at least you know it'll be an easy decision for the employer
Well I definitely slipped up. Look, see? Even I am so chauvinistic that I just see an FML involving computers and assume it's a guy who authored it! Shame on me, and thank you for pointing it out. OP will definitely have no problem getting a job then. She's a woman and she's smart! I can be, too. But she's definitely more observant than I. Thanks again, friend! :)
We live in a bureaucratic society that makes business decisions based on making the most money. It just so happens that a white, male employee is not always the best candidate. A business doesn't have to hire minorities, they just have to prove they are not actively discriminating against qualified applicants based on their race, which is pretty easy to prove if employees are hired based on qualifications. Employers know this, so your view that they feel compelled to hire minorities is false. It's just as illegal to hire someone because they are a minority as it is to hire someone because they are white. Furthermore, the inequities that are often tied with minorities (e.g. poverty) far outweigh any benefits they likely receive through things like affirmative action. I am not trying to attack you, just get you to think more critically in your assertions.
They may have made affirmative action quotas illegal, I'm not sure just going on your word, but I know for a fact that many companies have affirmative action GOALS. They tend to be more flexible than a quota, so they can legally still pursue people less qualified for positions based on race, sex, religion, ect...
As hard as it is to believe, she isn't the only person out there who doesn't know the difference between the two....
Ethernet cable is generally used as network cable. It's not an "internet cable." in fact internet connection is done through a coaxial cable through a modem which THEN uses Ethernet cables to sent & receive data to/from your computer. Ethernet cable is just four twisted pairs of cables running through a shrink tubing, you could run DC power through it if you wanted.
Really? I know almost nothing about computers and I know that the computer doesn't mean 'internet'.
