"the most basic, human and natural instinct there is." ... really ? .. REALLY !?  Not health care or social services, not education or even defence ... your 'most basic instinct' is to hang on to the family fortune. Explains a lot.

Intel and Altera .. self modifying hardware ?
Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is in talks to acquire Silicon Valley chip builder Altera, according to reports. If the deal goes through, it would be Intel's largest takeover ever.

Where do you draw the lines ?

What if the German government decides that they want equivalent access to all devices used in Germany ? Do German iPhone's now have have two sets of keys, one for the US government and one for the German government, or are the US government keys only required for IT equipment on US soil ?

What if a US citizen travels to France, will they have to allow the French authorities to install the French government keys at the border ?

What if a US citizen buys a French iPhone on EBay, with the French government keys but not US government keys. How will the US authorities check that all imported into the US have all the right keys installed ?

What if the Israeli, Egyptian, Turkish and Moroccan governments decide they all want to have the equivalent access to IT equipment in their countries ?

Will US businesses be willing to grant the Israeli, Egyptian, Turkish and Moroccan governments access to all their IT equipment ? Or do US companies get an international exemption because they are 'GoodGuys' ?

If a Canadian traveller has the US government keys installed at the border. What happens when they return to Canada ? Can they get the US government keys removed ? Or do Canadian citizens just have to accept that the US government can access to all their data whenever they want to ?
Privacy advocates say attempts to bypass encryption will create vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit.

The first part of a three part series on the #ESP8266.
What if you could have an Arduino compatible board, with WiFi, for just $5? Well now you can, because the ESP8266 is now Arduino compatible.

During a recent visit to Lesotho, one of our South African partners HHCU (Highveld Horse Care Unit) came across these little guys, who had brought their donkeys to be checked over. In rural Lesotho, children are often given their own donkey in order to herd livestock and they are always keen to learn about equine care. If you look carefully, you’ll notice that only one of the donkeys has a halter – HHCU’s Managing Director Bev Seabourne told us that the others are 'steered' using only the children’s legs. What a wonderful example of good donkey-man-ship!

One of the primary goals of any well designed software is to abstract the complexity and present a simple consumable solution to the problem. But what about the software development process itself? Modern day software development lifecycle has become tremendously complicated.
