Duolingo is a Free, Crowdsourced Language Learning App (Video)
Working nights in a hotel (read "lots of spare time") I decided to learn Spanish. I live 11km from Spain so it is kind of usefull... Last night a Spanish guy said I spoke real good Spanish for someone who learnt from an internet site on his own.
I guess that is an endorsement of the quality of Duolongo lessons.
Facebook To Buy WhatsApp
You thinking that people over 35 are old means you are very soon going to be in hot water. Breaking news: you are going to be joining us the "uncool" RSN!
My young adult kids think I'm cool and that is all that really matters when you are "old". I always thought that facebook was a load of crap and have never bothered with it.

Want To Fight Allergies? Get a Dirty Dog
Born and raised a NZ farmers son I have been allergic (pollen) and suffered from asthma (allergic not chronic) all my life. I grew up surrounded by dirty dogs and more sheep and cattle than most people will ever see in a whole lifetime.
Did the fact that precautions were not taken with farm chemicals back then have something to do with the allergy. I have been exposed to DDT, pesticides, feretilizers, you name it.
So OK maybe this works in a city environnement with kids that live in a modern hyper clean envirronment and who eat agro-industry cr@p er sorry food. Didn't work for this farmers son.
I wish my cell phone was...
How did this option get left out?

Ask Slashdot: Becoming a Programmer At 40?
I'm calling BS on this, sorry! I learnt my second language at over 21. I'm learning a third one right now. I have no problem with languages. Accents you work on if you have the time.
I learnt progamming at over 30. The PC came on the market when I was over 30... I'm still learning. It depends on the individual. Some people can, others can't.
If I had stuck with what Iearned before 14 I would be a sheep farmer. That was all there was in my neck of the woods.

A Server That Can Fall From the Sky, and Survive
> Hope they drop some hardened screens, too, to help with setup.
Sorry but what about disk images with ssh all set up and ready to go before throwing it from the plane? Most servers I have root on are thousands of kilometers away. The closest is about 600km from this screen and keyboard.

100GbE To Slash the Cost of Producing Live Television
Because before compressing the video you have to move it from the camera to the editing system. The less often you compress the better the quality of the final compressed product. Once the live broadcast has been edited it will be compressed just once before delivery to the end viewer.
Your Favorite Technology That Didn't Come To Pass
Then of course in "developed" nations we could just eat less, eat better quality food, stop over producing food and pay honest prices for food items that are imported from the "developing" world.
There, no more need for a food pill.
