Submission + - I Hate Gnome3 (aveen.se)

An anonymous reader writes: Here's a good rant (i.e. with concrete examples for a change) of some sore points, usability-wise, of Gnome 3.

Alt-tab switches between applications, not windows. So when I need to switch between two different terminals, as I often do at my work, I have to use both hands: one for the Alt-tab to get the application list and one for the arrow-keys to choose the terminal window.

Submission + - Suicide Drones (rt.com)

Taco Cowboy writes: A miniature drone that weight just 5 pounds (or about 2.3KG) may become the next in thing for the US Army.

Officially known as " the Lethal Miniature Aerial Munition System", or LMAMS, the miniature drone can be armed with high explosives, and can be flown to slam into a target 6 miles (or 9.6KM) away.

It is much cheaper than smart bombs, and it is much easier to be handled and store, and can kill with much precision.
