said Wang, an attractive middle-aged Korean woman with a stoic demeanor, dressed in a salmon denim blazer and simple black dress. Why does the article mention she is attractive? When was the last time an article about a male engineer mention 'handsome'? Subtle discrimination here.

Why does this remind me of the '80s and '90s battles over "Look and feel"? Lessee, if a game consumes dots then it is a rip-off of Pac-Man. Microsoft's desktop Recycle Bin could not look like or perform the same function as Apple's Trash can. Quatro's spreadsheet could not have the same menu items as Excel (Or was it Lotus 1-2-3?). Your use of the letter "A" cannot resemble my drawing and use of the letter "A" is what it sounds like to me.

Chronic sleep deprivation can make a brilliant person seem like a complete idiot -- simple mathematics can become difficult, steps in a routine procedure can be overlooked, and higher-order cognitive reasoning skills disappear." Clearly the developers of Kies, the PC software used to manage Galaxy phones, were under this regimen. It has manifested itself in the end product.

I have worked for a large company where people were working 120+ hr weeks and management made the statement to the entire group "don't care how many people are carried out in body bags, get the product done".

I agree. It's getting too far. Soon public toilets won't be allowed to use similar icons. Then we'll really be in deep... trouble :-)

stay all night is a normal for an engineer when they are absorbed in their experiments and researchs. however, human being is not a machine can work so long time without the plenty of the rest. If that would be a real thing, people might complain the company for its disregard of work law.

I had ever worked for three days and two nights continuously when I was young. and still had 3hours for eating food and 3hours for nap totally and then had a sleep nearly a whole day long. I can't believe that that woman can afford such tough work. needn't a month, only a week work like that will distroy her health.

Agreed. I have never met anyone who could work sustained 70h+ weeks without turning into a zombie. Note that I said "work", not "play golf with other bigwigs".

I feel so sorry for the lady having not enough milk for the baby. Not sure if the people involved are well compensated after the project completes. It's in fact a norm in a lot of Asian companies to demand employees to give in their 200 percent but give back only a token.
