For Sublime Text 3 users working with non-US keyboards, the default keybinding Ctrl+` (View > Show Console) isn't always working as it should. This is an issue connected to the keyboard layout. Fortunately, there is an easy fix.

Rack 'em and Stack 'em. Your computer is running more operating systems than you thought it as. Modern Intel chips are running Mimix, an OS intended for educational purposes, but that aside. Why not use Linux? According to the book The Linux Factory, Intel was an early supporter of Red Hat!

Way to go! All we need now is a translator for of vocal cords, so that we can speak any language we desire too.

Polyethylene takes 100 years to decompose. Unless you hire some honey worm caterpillars. A scientist discovered by accident that these caterpillars, or wax worms, can biodegrade plastic bags. Even the cocoons can decompose plastic bags. Probably because of an enzyme, that helps transforms the polyethylene into an alcoholethylene glycol. Bring on the wax worms.

When you use Linux, you have probably stumbled into SSH and discovered that its default port number is 22. Of course it is advised to change the port number when you actually start using SSH. In this post, Tatu Ylonen, the creator of SSH explains how the default port number became 22.

Two weeks ago, I told you that you would be able to order your own flying car somewhere later this year. Well, those guys are in for some competition.

Kitty Hawk, supported by Google's Larry Page, offers a $2,000 discount on the Kitty Hawk Flyer, when you sign-up and shove $100. Where's that queue?

Lorde paints her songs. About 1-4% of people have synesthesia. A neurological condition where senses are mixed. Because of her synesthesia, the singer-songwriter sees sound, and therefore #music, in #color. She keeps tweaking a song, until the painting of the song colors according to her liking. Apparently to Lorde, synesthesia is a blessing in disguise.

#AI #ArtificialIntelligence is going to replace white collar workers, like robotics is replacing blue collar workers. Turns out, entertainers are no longer required either. There is already a program composing #music! Can we bond with technology like we engage with a singer or a band?

Intriguing interview with Eugene Kaspersky: "Russians are the best #hackers in the world." The world is going to be a playground for criminals, and complete horror for users, when people do not take responsibility and change standard #passwords of routers, surveillance cameras, and the like. Preferably, strong passwords generated by some tool.

Of course, I do understand that Canonical, the company behind #Ubuntu, needs to make money. And the money is in the cloud and IoT. I just hope that Canonical remains committed to Ubuntu as a desktop OS too.
