Is #Windows PowerShell what #Linux users are looking for?
Microsoft has announced today that they will be open-sourcing PowerShell and also bringing the platform to Linux and OS X; an alpha preview is available today.

That would be cool. Then I would finally have a Linux laptop for work. MS Office is really the only thing holding us back from that now. Plus, we'd finally get our Year of The Linux Desktop!!!

Contact your congressman and let them know that encryption is important to your privacy.
 
Draft encryption bill could spell the end of privacy and security as we know it
Apple's battle with the FBI has focused the attention of the technology community on encryption. But while just about all of the big players in the tech world backed Apple's refusal to create a backdoor for the FBI into iOS, Congress has a very different idea about how encryption and governmental access to data should be handled. This is perfectlt demonstrated by a new bill.

Not too shabby for an electric.
 
They call it " a car that is both exhilarating for drivers and gentle on the environment."

The more I dug into this story, the uglier it looks. There is more, much more, to be found, here's what I have to date. I just updated the story with information about his arrest. There are still many unanswered questions.
Just prior to his death, Murdock had started sending increasingly erratic tweets from his Twitter account.

This firm represents lowlife leeches who are looking for a free ride. This is why Michigan has some of the highest car insurance rates in the country. Sadly, the lawyers at this firm can not even file simple paperwork correctly. They take shortcuts and just cut and paste from previous cases and don't bother to check if they got the details correct.
