75 inch 4K TV reccomendations? - siliconvalleytiger
So many conflicting reviews online. I was looking at the Sony xbr850 but then I read about the lighting issues. Some people swear by the UN75JU7100. All I care about is good picture to watch sports and Netflix. Any recommendations in the $2-3K range?...

re: Milllennium Tower in San Fran - what a clusterfrick (has sunk almost 16 inches) - siliconvalleytiger
I don't think loose soil was the problem. Lack of due diligence maybe when laying the foundation. Also some of the nearby construction is being cited as one of the reasons for the tower sinking and those builders are being sued too. Believe TNT salesforce builder is one and then the nearby metro sta...

re: What is the reason why Indian(India) people are so successful here in the US ? - siliconvalleytiger
A lot of these kids that come here to study come from very little. So they don't have the social skills and mannerisms to begin with. But they learn quickly and adapt to America better than any immigrant class. A lot of the tech execs in Silicon Valley and other places are people who came here f...

Because we're taught Math and science wether we like it or not. We're also taught to respect others, follow the law and work our assess off. It's a winning formula. Frugality and business acumen actually isn't the most common trait at all....

re: Milllennium Tower in San Fran - what a clusterfrick (has sunk almost 16 inches) - siliconvalleytiger
One of the senior execs in our company lives there. He says everyone suing the builder and anyone even remotely associated with the construction. People can't sell and it's too expensive to tear down and build it again. Bad situation. I believe his apartment costs 5M plus and it's worth zero right n...

The 49ers are a joke around here. Not many left who support this travesty that most people saw coming when Harbaugh left. York's ego is the reason. Harbaugh is a horrible human being who pushed his every button but you still have to make it work....
