National Lab Working To Mix Metals and Polymers For 3D Printing
Imagine a 3D printer that prints an armor in a week (ridiculously slow). Now imagine 1000 of thems. The army can afford it, they literally burn money all year.
Intel Dev: GTK's Biggest Problem, and What Qt Does Better
Also being pure C, it's much faster to compile! And that is an often overlooked advantage. My only gripe about GTK is they didn't go all the way and implement it in assembly to make development even faster.

Origin do refund games _if you don't like them_.
Steam won't refund utterlly broken trash games, except "War Z" which was a disaster.
It happened with X:Rebirth very recently: people edit XML savegame to progress through the story. Some others CTD on startup. Steam support won't refund, they say you used the software for 2 hours so they can't and won't, it's alpha quality at best sold 50 USD. Origin would refund, Amazon would refund, Steam tells you to GTFO.
I was a rabid Steam fan once, no longer.

Digital Revolution Will Kill Jobs, Inflame Social Unrest, Says Gartner
IT and service jobs --> Subsidised consumer (welfare)
I'm sure the system would be happy to pay everybody monopoly money just to make it work forever. Why, you ask ? Because money in itself has no value. Stop it flowing and it becomes paper and soon enough people use a new currency in their exchanges ; leaving you ruined.
