  Dear Inphi CEO Ford Tamer,   I am writing you this letter to express how sad and disappointed I feel about Inphi taking back my unvested RSU stock compensation when selling the Memory Business and transferring me part of this sale, and to show you that you could have transferred us without us employees loosing tens of thousands of dollars.   I am one of the 70 employees transferred (as you mentioned in the press conference on June 30, 2016)   I was shocked when after you wrote in the press release on June 30 that it is a "win-win for our employees" the next day I found out that I will loose tens of thousands of dollars. (press release SEC Form 8-K,Exhibit 99.1, June 30, 2016)   Inphi only compensated us, the transferred employees, "partially" for our unvested RSU compensation,...

Dear Elon, Whenever an individual eclipses all other competitors in a field or industry, he becomes the subject of intense scrutiny and widespread judgement. In many cases this is the result of jealously or frustration in competitors who, despite all their concerted efforts, have failed to equal the performance of the newfound figurehead. It may be the case in some instances that it is out of a desire to determine with certainty whether the successes and efforts of the figurehead are for the benefit of the industry, and society at large. Mr. Musk, your operations are in fact leading in not only one industry, but arguably three: automotive engineering, aeronautic engineering, and energy production (which I will discuss later). While you were not the pioneer in those industries,...

Your system is broken. I got banned because I told a 16 + (he was on call of duty so has to be) year old to fuck off? That's bullshit. He was trying to coerce me into suicide at the time telling me to hang myself because it's the only thing I'm good at but who cares really. I laughed at your stupid ban at first because I thought if I appealed I'd get it fixed straight away. Getting to the appeal thing was much harder than it sounded. I had to wait for 17 hours before I got assistance and I was placed on hold on the phone for 20minutes before being transferred to a different department and then bounced between different people because none of your staff know how to do their job. I then gave up after my appeal was denied because I had cussed. (Who gives a fuck) and my aggressor...

Dear Apple, I’m writing to say goodbye. It’s a sad day for me, as I feel like I’ve lost an old friend. There was a time where I would sit, with bated breath, eagerly anticipating the next Steve Jobs keynote speech. I would sit back afterwards, exhausted from the excitement, blown away by the Steve show. “Reality distortion field” or not, he always knew how to knock my socks off. I would visit the pages of Macrumors on a daily basis, hoping for a glimpse of what Cuppertino would release next – scouring the Internet for leaked photos or technical specifications of “the next big thing”. I would tear off the shrink-wrap around my fortnightly copy of MacUser with glee, feeling like part of a secret club of those “in the know” – scouring the free InsightUK brochure for my next...

Thirty-six years ago, long before introducing iPhone, iPod or even the Mac, Steve Jobs established Apple’s first operations in Europe. At the time, the company knew that in order to serve customers in Europe, it would need a base there. So, in October 1980, Apple opened a factory in Cork, Ireland with 60 employees. At the time, Cork was suffering from high unemployment and extremely low economic investment. But Apple’s leaders saw a community rich with talent, and one they believed could accommodate growth if the company was fortunate enough to succeed. We have operated continuously in Cork ever since, even through periods of uncertainty about our own business, and today we employ nearly 6,000 people across Ireland. The vast majority are still in Cork — including some of the very...

To Tyler and colleagues at Yik Yak, You don’t know me. In your eyes, this may make me seem less of a person; that my identity is a crucial aspect of how we must communicate and get to know one another, and that somehow what we establish here is less valid if one remains under a veil of anonymity. I would like to argue this point. However, I will provide some background information. I have been a user of Yik Yak since nearly the beginning. I’ve been here since before the implementation of herds. I remember when anyone could claim to be OP. I remember when icons were incredible (and, I assume, many college campuses were like my own and saw one icon in particular as being the most important). I also saw how Yik Yak became troublesome for high school students who were not equipped to...

Dear Niantic, Congratulations on the success of Pokemon Go, you have created a game that has brought the people of the world out of hiding, you have proven the power of technology to motivate and inspire people across the entire globe. It is now time to put this to use in a way that will benefit the many people who are suffering on our planet. Mobile phones are so accessible these days that almost every person has one, even the people who are living rough. I propose that you use the framework that you have created for Pokemon Go and Ingress to create a new game. This game will be very similar in the fact that you use augmented reality to get people out in the streets to travel to destinations and earn points for completing goals. The difference is that these goals are set...

Dear Mr Elon Musk. Where are the electric scooters? Not everybody needs a 4 wheeled vehicle that takes up a lot of space. Electric scooters for every-day commuters that can take a detour around the park without any guilty conscience. #1 ingredient for the future I would think. Combined with your solar-cells and batterie-packs that would be a perfect package for the dreamer of the future. The near future. I would love to work with you to help develop a more qualitative future. Sincerely, Mark Ridderstad. [email protected]

To, The numbnuts who hashtag everything, We are in an era of too many hashtags, but please #DontUseTooMuchOfItOnEveryPost.. Hashtags have been valuable on Twitter and Google since years. But, it becomes deadly when hashtag goes into the wrong hands... Each day hashtags are being pushed to the maximum by hashtag abusers. We know internet doesn’t have any protocol, but some NETIQUETTE would be well appreciated. The very purpose of hashtag is connecting tag posts -- so they can be grouped together around a certain subject or event -- and searched. They started as a way for people to find a particular topic. They began useful and utilitaritarian, but have evolved to this notion of being a cultural phenomenon and acting as if you are in the know. So that’s what people do, hashtag...
