Verizon buys Yahoo 4.8 Billion & Mayer will to get approx. 57 million

This cartoon is less of a criticism of Marissa Mayer then it is a comment on the outrageous salaries, bonuses and exit packages that are dealt out on a regular basis from corporate America. And especially when the person receiving the package is leaving the company in worse financial shape than they found it.

On the flip side, it was fantastic to see Yahoo hire a woman to lead them out of the doldrums they had found themselves in for close to 10 years. Which goes to my second point - there are few people who could have saved Yahoo at the point Marissa Mayer was hired. By the time she came in Yahoo was already hurling towards their own funeral with little hope in sight.

But all that said, Marissa Mayer could receive an exit package worth about 57 million dollars, which is frankly insane when you fact is she failed to pull Yahoo out of its self-imposed nose dive. Did she try, you bet. I’m sure she worked her tail off and did everything she could, but it still seems to me that a package as excessive as this should be reserved for someone who actually achieved, even partially, the task they were hired to do, which she did not.

God knows, the cards were stacked firmly against Marissa Mayer at every turn, but if the corporate hand slapping for failure is 57 million dollars, in addition the huge salary, what type of precedent is corporate America setting for success?

A Virtual Arduino Uno Workbench
I came across a very interesting tool for Arduino Uno that I cannot resist sharing with you today. It is the UnoArduSim that you can download from here https://www.sites.google.com/site/unoardusim/home. It is developed by Stan Simmons, retired from the department of electrical and computer engineering of Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada. In the short, it is an Arduino Uno board and an electronic workbench simulation software for Windows. The program is very neat, and requires no installation. Simply download, check for viruses, unzip and run the executable. Not only you immediately have a virtual Uno board at your mouse tip – the simulation seems pretty complete, and 3 versions are supported –, but more interestingly, you have access to a set of components, peripherals and tools that you can connect to the virtual Uno. Hence the term of workbench! In the simulator’s editor, you can enter and edit your program, compile it and upload it to the virtual board. From there, you can debug your application as usual – or even animate its execution, as I did to capture few of the videos posted. This program is really cool and is a perfect teaching tool! Using the simulator, one can create a set of labs to teach kids electronic, and use the simulator for debugging – or simply to work if you are short on parts!

This Raspberry Pi RFID door lock is pretty impressive. The NFC technology would allow for a key fob, mobile phone or any other integrated device to open your home (which is great if like me, you tend to 'misplace' your keys a fair bit.)

Now… we’re not suggesting you should implant an NFC chip into your hand… but if you did...
