Welcome To The World Of Drive-Through Law Offices

Filed under
Humor

In what could be the First Sign of the Apocalypse, a Utah entrepreneur has opened the world's first drive-through law office. With the ability to serve six lanes of traffic at the same time, the new "Stop 'N Sue" center hopes to make filing for a lawsuit as easy as picking up a hamburger.

"We're trying to take the torture out of tort law," said Ernest Lionel, the brainchild behind the patent-pending Stop 'N Sue system. He added, "Wow, that's a great line I just made up. I'll have to remember to trademark it during my lunch break. Speaking of trademarks, we're running a one-day-only 50% off special on all trademark applications..."

When a customer first pulls in, they see a large menu board advertising the company's specialties, including divorce petitions, wills (in medium, large, and extra-large sizes), and even a combo deal that allows great-grandmothers to defend themselves against unjust RIAA lawsuits while receiving a free tax shelter.

"For too long, the American legal system has been unreachable to the average American."

Full Story.

Why Dell’s gamble on Linux laptops has paid off

The whole juggernaut that is now Linux on Dell started as the brainchild of two core individuals, Barton George (Senior Principal Engineer) and Jared Dominguez (OS Architect and Linux Engineer). It was their vision that began it all back in 2012. It was long hours, uncertain futures and sheer belief that people really did want Linux laptops that sustained them. Here is the untold story of how Dell gained the top spot in preinstalled Linux on laptops. Where do you start when no one has ever really even touched such a concept? The duo did have some experience of the area before. George explained that the XPS and M3800 Linux developer’s laptops weren’t Dell’s first foray into Linux laptops. Those with long memories may remember Dell testing the waters for a brief while by having a Linux offering alongside Windows laptops. By their own admission it didn’t work out. “We misread the market,” commented George. Read more Also: New Entroware Aether Laptop for Linux Powered with Ubuntu

A Short MATE Desktop 1.17 Review in February 2017

MATE 1.17 is a testing release, it has no official announcement like 1.16 stable release (odd = unstable, even = stable). But what made me interested is because Ubuntu MATE 17.04 includes it by default so I write this short review. The most fundamental news is about MATE Desktop is now completely ported to GTK+3 leaving behind GTK+2. You may be interested seeing few changes and I have tried Ubuntu MATE 17.04 Alpha 2 to review MATE 1.17 below. Enjoy MATE 1.17! Read more Also: What's up with the hate towards Freedesktop?
