top How Sony, Intel, and Unix Made Apple's Mac a PC Competitor

top 3 Recent Flights Make Unscheduled Landings, After Disputes Over Knee Room
I either have to get the exit row or pay extra for better leg room. I physically cannot sit in most airlines seats. I don't mind it since I don't fly often. I wish they offered wide people some options as I am pretty narrow and don't like it much when people intrude on my seat area. But airlines really could care less whether anyone fits in the seats or not as long as they pay. I predict the seat pitch will get smaller and smaller until until double legs amputees can sit.
top Reported iCloud Hack Leaks Hundreds of Private Celebrity Photos
...how some speculation posted on the internet has to be true. So far there is zero evidence it has anything to do with iCloud or even Apple, just speculation. The brute password hack was real but there is no evidentiary connection so far. Unless 100% of the celebrities were using iPhones and iCloud to store their photos it's just as likely there was some other kind of hack such as some place they all were at (people pointed to the Emmys as one possibility). But the internet is all about pumping up the noise. It might be iCloud, or it might not be, we don't have any proof yet. It could be someone at the NSA had too much booze one day.

top Researchers Test Developer Biometrics To Predict Buggy Code
To be hooked up to some device while we work to measure how likely we are to wind up at the top of the stack rank. It could be completely automated, if it determines you just wrote sucky code it generates a pink slip email and a robot carries you out the door. Instant better code!
top No RIF'd Employees Need Apply For Microsoft External Staff Jobs For 6 Months
I was constantly amazed at how clueless the executives were when talking about the company with people being laid off present: "We're excited about the future things are going to be great, everything is roses, etc". Like they were saying "getting rid of all of you is so awesome."
