Walmart, that well-known purveyor of the finest America has to offer, will flog a $99 Windows 8 tablet for this year's Black Friday. As you'd expect at that price, the E Fun Nextbook is an utter dog: it has a 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor with 1GB of RAM – the bare minimum for Windows 8.1 to function.

Google Glass has lost more than a bit of its momentum since the project was unveiled in 2012 – and a new report on Friday is claiming that even developers building apps for the techno-goggles are giving up. Reuters said that it spoke with 16 developers and found that more than half had abandoned their plans to write software for the Chocolate Factory's headgear. The coders cited reasons such as a lack of customer interest, poor hardware specs and more money to be had in enterprise software.

I really stink at video games. I write about gaming occasionally, but the truth of the matter is, I'm just not very good. If we play Quake, you'll frag me just about as often as I respawn. I don't have great reflexes, and my coordination is horrible.

Welocalize’s translation management system (TMS) GlobalSight has been around for more than 15 years. Prior to 2005, it was an off-the-shelf commercial offering. In 2008, Welocalize, a global language services provider, acquired Transware which owned GlobalSight software as an in-house tool. Making GlobalSight open source in 2009 was a business decision by Welocalize, as it allowed users and clients the most options to support and create solutions that work best for them. As it turned out, clients liked the decision and Welocalize embraced the open source model as a business strategy. The GlobalSight community has been active since then and is a vibrant, active group of users, developers, and translation professionals. Users like GlobalSight because it is a fully featured TMS system, which is core to supporting localization and translation programs in large enterprises.
