Why the hell would you "self-host" a cloud service?
Almost any server can be "cloud service". There are several interesting solutions to the problem "I need to access a Git repository over the net" in "the cloud" or otherwise. For example, I self host because my code is so amazing, I can't risk having anyone see it lest they die from heart attack due to the overwhelming splendor.
The name is totally appropriate, if you understand its derivation. Altaba is the younger sister of Alibaba. Legend has it, that Altaba was always considered the "black sheep" of the family, but eventually became independent and successful through lots of hard work and determination.
My AMD Athlon II x4 is from 2010, and I still use on the Desktop (24GB ECC RAM, recent mobo upgrade only). I also don't feel the need to upgrade, but the hardware encryption from all the modern processors would be nice to have.
Obama pulled out unilaterally and left the door for ISIS.
Obama didn't pull out of Iraq, he brought troops home. Are you willing to go fight in Iraq to prevent ISIS from rising? Why not send your loved ones or children? Nobody, including you, wants to die for that bullshit.
This is an incredibly silly argument, "the entire lead that Hillary has is covered by her lead in Los Angeles County", when one person's vote in Los Angeles County counts the same in the popular vote as one person's vote in Texas. Yet, it was modded +5 insightful. Apparently, the "nerds" here on Slashdot can't do math.
Facebook is too young to do such a study reliably, unless, of course, by "people" you mean mice.
A properly done study would take a group and randomly assign members to a control group (no social media) and an experimental group (mandatory social media), and then wait for people to start dying.
