Economists Say Newest AI Technology Destroys More Jobs Than It Creates
"We're going to enter a world in which there's more wealth and less need to work,"
So what hey're saying is we need is a new method of distributing that wealth so that work is not the only way to obtain it?

AI Expert: AI Won't Exterminate Us -- It Will Empower Us
If it empowers us then I guess it'll also help us do what we do best, exterminate each other
Unity 8 Will Bring 'Pure' Linux Experience To Mobile Devices
I was just too lazy to switch until the past few months, where all that effort trying to work around the interface built up to the point where I got fed up. I didn't mind trying out a new way to do things, found shortcuts that helped my workflow, and definitely gave Unity a fair shake. I just found my ire building up, instead of what was promised to me which was an improvement that I might have to learn to appreciate. Sticking with it since its introduction, I just haven't found that promise to come true.
I switched to Mint at the tail end of 17.0 and have upgraded to 17.1, and it's been a pleasure, everything works the way I expect and there aren't any quirks. Tailoring the default install to what I wanted was intuitive, and didn't take very long at all (just disabling window snapping/tiling). The options aren't hidden away somewhere secret and are clearly labeled. I'm very happy. Granted, this is based on a history of working with KDE 2/3, Gnome 2, and prior to that the Windows interface, so I've been used to something similar the whole time I've been using GUIs. I don't know what someone with fresh eyes or born and bred into a world where smartphone interfaces are what you learn first would think of Unity. But for me, I'm extremely happy with Cinnamon and I'm pleased that with every new release they don't change the way things work.
Court Orders Uber To Shut Down In Spain
The situation has been exposed: traditional taxi services have been suffering from a monopoly position, and there is clearly room for competition that reworks their model into something more fair for the drivers, and as a good opportunity for a startup that wants to make it happen. The demand is there, it just takes a group with the right plan to capitalize on the opportunity.

Italian Supreme Court Bans the 'Microsoft Tax'
Just don't have software loaded on the PC at all, and include a disc that images your computer if you do agree that you want it at retail/on order.
Days After Shooting, Canada Proposes New Restrictions On and Offline
So saying "A government MP offers the scant assurance that this legislation is not "trauma tainted," as it was drafted well prior to this week's instigating incidents" is definitely no consolation. Canadians should be happy that they decided to go nuts prior to this event rather than after? Do they want a cookie for that?
Ubuntu 14.10 Released With Ambitious Name, But Small Changes
I finally switched to Mint with Cinnamon and love it. I appreciate what Ubuntu has done to make Linux usable on the desktop, but in that spirit I am now supporting Mint, which seems to have taken over that position with a great interface that promises consistency.
Proposed Penalty For UK Hackers Who "Damage National Security": Life
Why is this only being limited to acts "on a computer"? If they feel so strongly about it, why doesn't it apply to any such act regardless of a computer being involved?
'Microsoft Lumia' Will Replace the Nokia Brand
Part of their deal when they bought out a subsection of Nokia was that they couldn't use the Nokia name on such products.
Ubisoft Claims CPU Specs a Limiting Factor In Assassin's Creed Unity On Consoles
That would explain frame rate, if they couldn't get their physics/AI routines to work fast enough (although they could use interpolation routines to alleviate that), but does not explain the rendering resolution. Do they expect us to believe they had the CPU working on shaders or rasterization? Even post-processing effects would be handled by the GPU.
Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems
The worst part is when shortcut keys and mnemonics are changed because of a different language, I navigate by keyboard and have to re-learn everything on other systems and guess what the right command is if I don't know the language.

Lost Opportunity? Windows 10 Has the Same Minimum PC Requirements As Vista
Exactly, I don't want an OS that's a resource hog. As for smartphones? They can't keep running at top speed for long before getting heat throttled, or the battery dying. It's apples and oranges. And they still have moments of slowdown and stuttering with all that power. I'd rather have a smooth experience where the OS stays out of the way.

Where Whistleblowers End Up Working
Start a web site that can serve as a talent pool for people like this. Many people would consider them american heroes, and if they had more visibility, maybe they would get hired faster. If they show up on a background check, the employers would be more likely to know why and give them a pass.
