It is very surprising that Magento is abandoning SaaS and over 10,000 merchants, only a few years after launching Go. 

Current Magento Go customers should consider migrating to Volusion. They have been around for over 10 years and lead the small to medium-sized hosted e-commerce market, so there's no danger of being abandoned again. Volusion also integrates with eBay and numerous other services. Here's a Volusion landing page comparing them to Bigcommerce:

Volusion also launched Mozu this year, which is a completely new modern enterprise commerce SaaS platform that I have been helping build. It could be a good fit for larger Magento ProStores customers that need more robust customization/support/features.

Movie industry lobbyists at the MPAA are trying to resurrect SOPA-style web censorship via a back door. Let's defeat online censorship again. Tell the MPAA to kill the #ZombieSOPA. https://takeaction.withgoogle.com/g-stop-mpaa

This is a big problem for Google Chrome, and one which Google has been ignoring for four years now. Fingers crossed this article will push them along: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ianmorris/2014/07/14/googles-chrome-web-browser-is-killing-your-laptop-battery/
If you're using Google Chrome as your web browser on Windows, you might be draining your battery. Here's why:
