Submission + - SpaceX Rocket Landing Test Crashes After Successful Cargo Launch (space.com)

0x2A writes: A Falcon 9 rocket built by SpaceX successfully launched a Dragon cargo ship toward the International Space Station early Saturday— and then returned to Earth, apparently impacting its target ocean platform during a landing test in the Atlantic.
"Rocket made it to drone spaceport ship, but landed hard. Close, but no cigar this time. Bodes well for the future tho," Elon Musk tweeted shortly after the launch.

This is only news to the extent that Microsoft had a dumb policy that allowed such purchases to begin with. Imagine instead the headline read "Oracle bars employees from using company funds to buy DB2 or SAP." You'd think it was pretty dumb that they ever allowed that. This is the same thing.

I'm sure those who actually need to buy Apple products for competitive research at Microsoft are still allowed to. What they're not going to allow is their staff to run around with iPhones and iPads purchased on the company dime. Anymore, that is.
