Why would you waste 14GB of space on your phone for this, when you have Internet anyway?

Can anyone think of anything for this besides loading the compressed version of this onto your phone?

Also, does anyone think giving up 14G of a 256GB phone is a big deal?

"this is probably what you want"

Actually I used to go first to the talk page to see what is being censored. However, the censors are on to this and regularly flush out any interesting discussion.

So no, that's not what I want.

256GB phone, WTF, is that $2569.99?

I have a 2G phone, plus a 32G SD card. Unfortunately it doesn't support the 32G+ size cards or I'd slam a 128GB in there.

Well my phone with the 2G flash cost a little under $15 and the 32G card was around $8 on black friday which is when I buy SD flash each year.

So you paid $1000. Ok.

When you factor in bonuses, Google's average developer compensation is around $450k.

$119,391 baseline bonus per year, on top of salary.

There's also other bonuses.

It's mostly the equity grants.  Google's stock price is still going up fast.

Also, there's an expectation to get promoted every 2-3 years.

Entry level seems to be around $150k-$200k (including bonuses), but two rungs higher is a LOT better.

I also wonder - is Google great because they have the best employees?

Or they just stumbled into a cash cow business model, and now can afford to pay way-above-market rates?

Good questions
Also, how can I make over 400K salary and bonuses?

Be a recent grad from an elite school.

Be a recent grad, cram study algorithm questions, hope you pass the onsite interview.

Not be a recent grad, cram study algorithm questions, hope you can both make it to the onsite interview and then pass it.

In my last job search, a Google recruiter contacted me, but then rejected me without even a technical interview.  So cramming algorithm interview questions wouldn't have helped at all for me.

While I know Python now, I'm by no means an expert in it.

I'll try again the next time I'm looking.

Fuck Google. They're the Yahoo of the second decade of the 21th century. Sooner or later they'll have the same fate...

This is one problem that Google (and other big tech companies have).

If you pay wsy-above-market-rates, it only works if your hiring process is capable of distinguishing between people who know what they're doing and fakers.  Otherwise, you're just flushing your money down the toilet.

If you advertise a job for $400k/year, some qualified people will apply.  You also get lots of unqualified people trying to game your hiring process.
