SatNav?

Droid pilots beat humans at air-to-air refuelling

I love the pic from the article

It looks like the pilots are surrendering to some alien probe.

Microsoft and Cisco play top trumps with exam providers

Larry

Not surprised

The two most generic fields in I.T. today. I am always happy to see people looking to move into technology. Todays ads promise amazing salaries with Microsoft or Cisco certification. That is just not the case. The good salaries are reserved for Unix or Linux experience. Business runs on these platforms. The ads produce a widespread commodity of these skills which further acts to reduce the value. When the skills to run the platform are this generic, you get a generic platform. It is a self fulfilling prophecy. A platform so generic can't do anything of significant value.
