This stick is no stooge. It has the brains of a puck, and most of the brawn. But because it's a stick, it's cheaper and simpler, and therefore a great option for people new to the whole puck-and-stick game.

Times are changing. Really fast...
and if my educated guess are correct,
Apple will be the first mainstream
computer company to jump with both feet
in the market of wearable computing. :D

You already posted this:

companies will start working in this...

This will be especially interesting to those considering Linux to replace XP, as Lubuntu and Xubuntu run marvelously well even on older computers:
 
What's new in Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, and Ubuntu GNOME 14.04.

A new version of Ubuntu means a new version of Ubuntu flavours. We've highlighted some key changes for the 14.04 releases of some of the most popular flavours.

How many years of court time, how many hundreds of millions of dollars that'll be passed on like a tax to consumers, how much longer will this go on? 

NZ called it right when they just said "No" to software patents.

The Front-end Tooling Book

A free open source book introducing you to the world of tooling for modern web applications.

Over the past few years, there has been a new wave of highly compelling and immersive web applications. Some of them replacing native applications as they are on par (if not better) in terms of usability and features. To build and maintain such complex applications in a collaborative environment, it is important to use the right tools. Unfortunately, there is no single place which documents available front-end tooling and provides an opinion for a developer.

The goal of this book is to walk developers through the application development lifecycle; help discover new concepts and introduce tooling that simplify building modern web applications.

XP is dead, and many PCs that shipped with it aren't able to run Win7 - time to move on, and you can do so with the PC you already have:
