Hadoop, done right, takes many departments to work on and organize in a big enterprise. Small shops may have one guy who is both SA and Programmer who could get the job done enough to make a difference. Furthermore, you NEED a full install from a big vendor. Installing Hadoop from OpenSource is a nightmare, and the big vendor's make it painfully simple to get the job done quickly. Can you do it by hand? Sure. Do you have the time? Not when you have other projects to work on and you can spend the companies capital to get the install and config done in 1/10th the time.
I live a very active lifestyle. I do martial arts, dive, play sports, a whole bunch of things that having that lil 'flap' be a problem if it were to ever 'pop' open. Thankfully I spent the extra cash and went with PRK which is the same surgery Air Force pilots get.
What is the big difference? : Simple, there is no flap. They carve off the top of the cornea's layer is removed and is then grown back. No flap, no popping, no worries.
What is the downfall: 3 days of light blinding pain whenever bright light occurs. Thankfully this is negated by modern medicine and covers for your eyes.
What is the upside: This is the first type of LASIK ever invented so it's been done brazillions of times. This is perfected to a state of art and I've had no issues in the 10 years since I've done the surgery. Best money ever spent and not one chance if getting poked in the eye or underwater accident that this 'flap' may (1/1000) pop open.
Was it overkill? Perhaps. But that's one less thing I ever have to worry about.
I am more than happy with Feedly and their feature set. I threw them some money to support them and tell everyone I know to use them as their apps work just as well if not better than what Google was trying to do.
Another wretched sales brouchure disguised as a review by Infoworld.

In a murder someone dies, there is pain and closure. It happens and there is nothing you can do about it, someone is dead.
Sex crimes are where the victim lives to tell the tail. The lingering "pain" and "emotional suffereing' cause this to be a more serious crime to society as both the perpetrator and the victim still live.
Death is a finality. Rape lasts for a lifetime.
Slashdot fell for it, hook line and grell.
Longer story, more plot, but in essence same gameplay as 30yrs ago.
I've been a longtime XP user. I use Ubuntu and RHEL at work. I use linux and unix. I hated Vista with a passion, thought it was a PIA and had so much config problems. I then bought a new PC (quad core 6GB ram, blah blah) so I figured I'd put Vista on it. First time worked ok. I updated my bios, it blew away my Raid 1. Got irritated and stopped screwing with it. Then SP2 came along in the last few weeks and I reinstalled my OS and installed SP2 over it.
It just works. Works perfectly. So simple to install Vista and simple to install the SP2. 2 reboots and I had everything working. Fixed the RAID issue, fixed the bluetooth issue, fixed some other quirks that drove me batshiz crazy.
I gotta say that I used to hate vista with the passion of a 1000 firey suns. Now I'm like "Well it's not too bad, what's the problem with it again?"
A blatant upgrade to Time Pilot. Really come on I was playing this in the 80s and it was better.
The brittleness of the plastic material from which the 787 fuselage is built would create a more severe impact shock to passengers than an aluminum plane, which absorbs impact in a crash by crumpling. A crash also could shatter the plastic fuselage, creating a hole that would allow smoke and toxic fumes to fill the passenger cabin.
-After such a crash landing, the composite plastic material burning in a jet-fuel fire would create "highly toxic smoke and tiny inhalable carbon slivers" that "would likely seriously incapacitate or kill passengers."
-The recently conducted crashworthiness tests — in which Boeing dropped partial fuselage sections from a height of about 15 feet at a test site in Mesa, Ariz. — are inadequate and do not match the stringency of comparable tests done on a 737 fuselage section in 2000.
-The conductive metal mesh embedded in the 787's fuselage surface to conduct away lightning is too light and vulnerable to hail damage, and is little better than a "Band-Aid."
