Aside from the exciting, albeit still long over-due step major tech innovators are taking to foster family leave policy change, what particularly interests me about this story is the sheer timing of it all.

I am writing about an issue with customer service and what I believe to be breach of software agreements. In 2011, I bought a copy of Microsoft Office from a legitimate retailer. I had some problems with installation and contacted Microsoft about it.
Steven Hawking has predicted that advancements in robotic research and artificial intelligence threaten human existence. It's a concern that we are not willing to acknowledge, perhaps, because we are still trying to figure out what people are going to do as everyday work suddenly disappears.
I don't know if I broke a law of computing or committed heresy. But I installed Windows 10 on my Macbook Pro. I had feared that this would condemn me to purgatory in the gates of computing hell. But it has been an incredibly positive experience.
