I fully understand that once you start installing and configuring your own services, you're back in the realm of Linux again where you get what you pay for in terms of maintenance and support as you upgrade.  It's the reason why I stopped myself when I started to explore the technology used for the OS X's firewall (pf, from the OpenBSD community) and considered using IceFloor for more advanced configuration. I'm hoping that if/when Apple does drop support for Server, there...
 And then spend weeks figuring out the latest and greatest incantations of setting up firewall rules, configuring services, etc.  That's why I eventually gave up on Linux -- just didn't have the time to relearn everything every time I upgraded.  I'm all for progress, but at least provide an upgrade path which doesn't involve a couple solid weeks of looking through sparse documentation and reconfiguration. We'll see how it goes with upgrading my OS X Server box here... the...
 My friend was actually working on noodles made from cricket flour.  Doubt most people would even know at that point.
 Agreed -- it has been a scare tactic used in various forms in attempts to control/manipulate society and procreation for centuries. I just had an in-depth discussion with a friend of mine working in the food & agriculture industry the other day discussing the merits of cricket farming.  Near zero energy usage and very little land required to provide a sustainable food source.  As you stated: innovate and adapt.
To the naysayers, I'd argue that it's about giving people a choice as to when they want to have a family.   That said, I do agree that those who choose to have a family earlier in life should also be given an option for daycare services and facilities to get back to a more work/life balanced career later on.  It should work both ways and not be biased towards life choices which also happen to be more beneficial for the employer.
 Oh, I'm a software guy too.  I'm just speaking from experience of having to support shoddy hardware. And DuckDuckGo is a service, so it's a bit irrelevant here because they can choose the hardware their service runs on (aside from being at the mercy of shoddy browsers).
 Or duckduckgo it...  "People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware".  Otherwise you're at the mercy of forever having to support lowest common denominator/lowest bidder hardware.
Interesting that a new version of OS X Server was also released today, but it's still a developer preview.
 Can you put a sticker on your forehead that says: not made to carry on rational conversations?
 Every phone that guy tested bent under extreme force.  And while they didn't completely bend out of shape like the iPhone 6 Plus, the test was hardly scientific because the iPhone he showed was pre-bent, he didn't bend the other phones in the same spot, and it's impossible to tell if he used the exact same amount of force on all of them.  And some of the other phones started to make cracking sounds when he bent them, which likely indicated internal damage of some sort...
