Not so long ago, having some basic knowledge about hardware and being able to master one or two programming languages was more than enough to get you hired.
Nowadays, you don’t need to know anything about hardware, very little about actual programming, but you’ll need to take some pretty odd courses to even have a fighting chance. [...]
Although it is still a “work” in progress, has a ton of bugs and is barely usable, it does provide a very nice feature: apparently, it will work under any platform where Mono is supported…
The emulator is being primarily designed to run under Windows, but with a few tweaks it will run under any platform that supports the Mono framework, such as any Linux distribution, Mac OS X (including Mavericks) and, quite surprisingly, it will even run on the Raspberry Pi! [...]

We’ve all heard the news about the guy who posted his dead wife’s photos on Facebook.
We’ve all heard the news about Beyonce’s new hear do.
We’ve all heard the news about Weiner sexting scandal(s).

Just think about it: Next time you listen to Get Lucky, 10 humans will have died of malaria…
And those that are more likely to be affected by this disease are extremely-beyond-believe poor and live in countries where, if not killed by an infectious disease, will die by hunger, war, religion or simply “natural causes”.
So, having a one-less reason to die is a thing to be celebrated, even if the “mainstream media” doesn’t think so.
