    Apologies. Sometimes it's difficult to tell around here.

    Why did BoQ ditch EDS?

    Why did Suncorp ditch Infosys?

    Do you want more example?

    Yeah, but I've got a secret weapon. With AutoCad Civil and AutoCad Mechanical installed on my laptop, I've just obsolesced entire Engineering disciplines. His science degree is the only thing worth a pinch of shit now. Oh, wait. Scientists can't get a gig anywhere these days either :(.

    Whose job's in strife now? :cool:

    Jesus... I better start upskilling in something useful then.

    Sounds like my choices are to become a manager, or move to India. No other value in any other career choice, clearly.

    :lol:

    Share the annual report powerpoint file on Dropbox from your iPad, tweet some Gen Y candidates, check the company dashboard running on an Amazon EC2 instance.

    This IT thing is a piece of cake. Who needs technical staff?

    You sound like someone who knows what they're talking about.

    Could you please sell me some big data? Probably the biggest data I've currently got is some out-of-control .pst files, but from what I'm hearing, big data is bigger than that.

    I have budget.

    Whenever someone starts talking cloud computing I get this uncontrollable urge to punch them in the face!

    Fucking call it what it is... there are enough acronyms to choose from to describe it correctly! use the right one.

    Just the word cloud coming out of someones mouth makes me instantly dismiss them as tools. (and want to give them a big falconpunch).

    fucking buzzwords.
