I find it funny to recall that, only a few years ago, it was iTunes that was the enemy according to the big labels - and they did everything they could to undermine Apple's influence.

They figured out how to monetize that... and I'm sure they'll figure out how to turn Spotify into a profit generator as well.

I've used the Surface Pro keyboard covers, both cheap and expensive. It's amazing that anyone who's actually used one would tout that piece of crap as a feature. It's horrible!

And seriously - who wants to lug around a two pound tablet? if you want a Windows laptop, just get one of those Yoga things.

Come on - who really cares about MIT versus GPL licensing in this context? And by "who" I mean "people who manage and use databases as part of their paid job"?

And why does anyone care what someone writing for Dice says on this topic? I read the article, and it doesn't sound like the author has even used any of the features he's decided favor postgres.

What's next - a Dice article on emacs vs. vi?
