Interestingly, the other company with a major game engine (Epic) has just announced a series of layoffs, about a sixth of its employees, to "financially stabilize the business:"
https://www.epicgames.com/site/en-US/news/layoffs-at-epic
https://archive.ph/C3YRh (Bloomberg article)
Earlier this year they implemented UEFN, which gave map makers a lot more freedom and even struck a deal where these creators get a cut of I'm-sure-what-exactly. But apparently their profit margins aren't doing so great, and they're still fighting against Google and Apple, so they're letting go of people outside the "core business." It's interesting that Fortnite doesn't actually give them infinite fuck you money.

>to "financially stabilize the business:"
and somehow unity still has like 5k more employees because ????

 No.2028

>>2025
Unity should now have about 7k employees after 600 were laid off earlier this year, while Epic has ~4.2k. But, and this is a big butt, Epic has a ton of outsourced contractors, to the point that it hired hundreds of them just last year:
https://www.theverge.com/2022/2/19/22942053/epic-games-full-time-employment-contingent-workers
So, the effective difference may not be so big, but that's assuming Unity doesn't have a couple thousand contractors as well. I kinda doubt it though.

>A nationwide test of the federal emergency alert system will be broadcast at approximately 2:20 p.m. EDT to cellphones, televisions and radios across the United States.
>The test will occur simultaneously across time zones, so people in the middle of the country can expect it at 1:20 p.m. Central Time, or 12:20 p.m. Mountain Time. On the West Coast it will be at 11:20 a.m. Pacific Time. In most of Alaska it's at 10:20 a.m., and in Hawaii, 8:20 a.m. local time.

Prepare for unforeseen consequences. I heard from some online wackos that they think this is when the 5G corona vaccines will go off and kill 90% of the global population.

Yeah, this was one of the earliest seasonal news thread and the OP hadn't yet clarified that it was about good, interesting news and not death and destruction like every other website. Scientific news, nature, archeological discoveries, etc. You know, stuff that doesn't ruin your mood.

http://www.coding2learn.org/blog/2013/07/29/kids-cant-use-computers/

Not particularly newsworthy, but it's a really good read. A couple years ago I recall reading what I believe was either a Washington Post, New York Times, or perhaps Verge article that was lamenting the inability of students to really use computers as if it was a sudden development and that kids have suddenly become technologically illiterate. I think this article from 2013 probably has it right: People have always been technologically illiterate, and its simply a result of people not being challenged to really use a computer or having a streamlined experience that causes people to not understand how computers truly work, be it from only having experience with web browsers, and office suite programs, or from only using mobile devices, or from using heavily locked down computers in schools. I would heavily recommend anyone interested in education and technological literacy to give it a read. Even if the information isn't necessarily practical, it's still engaging and an entertaining read.

>Oct 11 (Reuters) - Microsoft (MSFT.O) said on Wednesday the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in September notified the company that it is seeking an additional tax payment of $28.9 billion, plus penalties and interest for tax years from 2004 to 2013.

>Microsoft said the IRS notices relate to an ongoing dispute between the company and the U.S. tax authority, which is auditing how Microsoft allocated its profit among different countries and jurisdictions.

holy crap that's insane. Honestly, I'm more impressed by the state of reconstructive surgery. The video included some pretty graphic imagery of his injury and the guy looked like horrible. Like a zombie almost. Now, although he doesn't really look like himself pre-injury, he doesn't look too bad.
