The city I work in (Jackson, MI) has an old prison that was converted to apartments. The accommodations are actually quite nice, although some windows still have bars on the outside.
If you don't like the redesign Mozilla has done with the new tab page and want to avoid the sponsored tiles, this extension reverts much of the new tab page appearance and allows a decent amount of customization.
These are around $6000 but it's the real deal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
You may have lost a zero there--I wasn't able to find pricing on that machine specifically, but most pick and place machines of that caliber cost upwards of $50,000. There are some chinese ~$3,000 desktop machines like this http://dangerousprototypes.com..., but they have poor accuracy and no optical feedback.
A $300 pick and place machine would be awesome, but honestly anything around $2000 that can accurately place 0402 components with optical feedback would be amazing.
For anyone with ILO2-equipped servers that have frozen due to heartbleed vulnerability scanning, HP has released a (thankfully) free update to the ILO2 firmware to work around the issue. A physical power cycle of each server is required before the update may be applied, however. http://h20566.www2.hp.com/port...
...that might explain why my iLO locked up recently. It responds to pings, but is completely inaccessible from the web, ssh, and the host OS. Time to call my datacenter and have them power-cycle my server I guess...
There is some technology akin to 3d printing for books, such as the Espresso Book Machine which can print an entire book in a couple of minutes. Some universities have these machines, but I'm not sure if they will ever have much popularity outside of an academic setting.
“We reserve the right to monetise that footprint,” Peters explains. “YouTube implemented a very similar capability, which allows people to embed videos on a website, with the company generating revenue by serving advertising on that video.” And while Getty Images has yet to determine how these ads will appear, Peters is confident that this capability will be introduced in the near future.
TFA actually states that they plan on adding advertising soon, although they don't mention how these ads will be displayed in their "embedded player". I have no idea how they plan on advertising without being incredibly intrusive; I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
ublox modules are pretty nice for embedded designs, although the nv08c-csm is also a really awesome multi-constellation raw-supporting module that I'm starting to use more often.
A long list of startups have put forth a Herculean effort to find the best way to suggest new things for people to read, and former Slashdot editor-in-chief Rob Malda, also known as CmdrTaco, just unveiled his: Trove, a people-powered app initially available on the web and for iPhone and iPad.
Trove basically lets users opt in to feeds of stories that align with their interests. Users are encouraged to curate "troves," collections of stories that relate to a particular theme. You could create a trove for "Ukrainian Politics," "Dog Heroes," or "Best of The Verge," for example, to which other Trove users can subscribe.
"The core of the product is that people have many interests and rather than just giving them information through pure algorithms and picking particular publications, we want to connect them with people who share those interests, who can pick the best content in those topical areas," says Vijay Ravindran, CEO of Trove.

systemd service files are quite straightforward---I'm not sure what kind of monumental effort you are referring to when creating service files. For a simple service, starting/stopping/restarting the service is handled automatically, leaving a very minimal service file.
I agree that teacher-student interaction and personal relationships should be more encouraged in higher education through smaller class sizes. Nevertheless, I don't think that this is currently limited to liberal arts colleges—I attend a university with a small yet excellent engineering department, in which relationships with professors have proved invaluable to my education.
Large lectures on the other hand are minimally interactive, and could be migrated to online video. The benefit of this migration is that professors who held large lectures in the past would be available to teach smaller classes, providing more opportunities for one-on-one interaction. The hard decision is which classes to offer as online lectures and which to offer with small class sizes, as different courses seem to lend themselves to different teaching styles.
