What company today that has something like ATT Bell Labs of
Bell Labs produced so many invention and discovery. People like Shockley, Kelly, Pierce, Shannon, Bardeen, and Brattain? There are countless others that made contribution to our society.
Today we have fuckerberg, Gay Tim Cook, creepy Sergey, and slimy Larry. Oh, don't forget Horseshit Dorsey.
