This is Not my idea of a new "feature."
Summary:For businesses, this makes sense. But for individuals, it seems like an invitation for 140-character spam. The good news: The feature is opt-in.

Yet another reason I'm glad I never started using twitter.  Set up an account, but never used it.

Pro tip: The best time to joke about hacking an airplane while on one is never.
Summary:A security researcher joked about hacking a plane and was picked up by the FBI. They didn't think it was one bit funny.

Exactly; it's security theater. He's the guy finding and reporting security issues for the benefit of the industry. If they treat him like crap, he may decide to do research in another area. Then they'll be 'safe' - no more reported problems! /s

So you think Linux is hard do you? Please, I bet you can use Ubuntu with Unity with ease.
Summary: The easiest desktop operating system to use of all may be Ubuntu.

Nope, because the machine was used remotely (under my tv and used for my art repository). If it doesnt get to a working desktop remotely it is effectively dead. I am a developer but also an artist. On days when I have my art hat on I really can't be messing with software.

I've read code like this. I, ahem, may also have written code like this on occasion.

+Caleb Cushing I know the New star wars is considered Canon and old is Legend. Sucks for sure. I know Darth bane tried unlocking the secrets of immorality and failed. Revan is a sweet character for sure based off swkotor and tor series but mask could have been just a new thing. I guess we will wait and see

I'll watch it when it comes out, but I have to say that, based on this, I don't find it nearly as interesting as the next Avengers or Star Wars movie.

Now, if only people managed it properly, I'd be perfectly happy.
Summary:Black Duck Software and North Bridge's survey found open-source software in businesses everywhere, but few are managing it worth a darn.

I'm not really interested in cars at all, but still there is something about a DeLorean, even without the flux-capacitor.
The original DeLorean factory in Northern Ireland may be long gone but you can still buy a factory fresh example of the most iconic gull-winged doored car of all time. XCAR went to Houston to find out more.

Introduction
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has been writing about technology and the business of technology since CP/M-80 was the cutting edge, PC operating system; 300bps was a fast Internet connection; WordStar was the state of the art word processor; and we liked it!

Steven was also the first writer to notice this little thing called the Web and he thought it just might be important some day. Who knew!? :-)
