  • Linus Torvalds, the developer who created the widely-used open source operating system Linux, warned users not to use the ZFS file system, Phoronix's Michael Larabel first reported.
  • ZFS was built by Sun Microsystems, which has since been acquired by Oracle.
  • Torvalds said he does not feel "safe" adding ZFS code to Linux because of Oracle's "litigious nature," citing Oracle's ongoing lawsuit against Google for "stealing" Java technology.
  • Google and its supporters charge that an Oracle victory in that lawsuit would have a chilling effect on software innovation — and Torvalds' comments highlight how Oracle's stance in the matter might affect the company's perception in the world of open source.

The renowned programmer Linus Torvalds has warned users of Linux, the popular open source operating system he built, not to use an Oracle file system because of possible legal actions, Phoronix's Michael Larabel first reported.

The file system, called ZFS, was built by Sun Microsystems, which has since been acquired by Oracle. Torvalds wrote in an online forum on Jan. 6 that he does not feel "safe" in adding ZFS code to the Linux project because of Oracle's tendency to file lawsuits against other companies, including an ongoing legal brawl between Google and Oracle.

Open Banking 101: How Financial Institutions Can Take Advantage of a Global Movement

Posted: 13 Jan 2020 10:02 AM PST

Open banking, which has been implemented in the U.K., involves sharing customers' financial information electronically and securely, but only under conditions that customers approve.

Open banking forces lenders to offer a digital "fire hose" of data that any third party can use to get standardised access — provided the startup is registered with the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the customer agrees to share their data.

This system has already taken root in the U.K., but it could soon spread to the rest of the world. That's why Business Insider Intelligence has put together a report called Open Banking 101: How Financial Institutions Can Take Advantage of a Global Movement to Collaborate with Partners and Developers.

I thought I needed a lawyer from my state to write my will, but I was able to do it online in minutes for a fraction of the cost

  • After years of procrastination, I used Trust & Will to create estate planning documents that explain my final wishes and protect my family if I die.
  • The process of using Trust & Will was simple and easy to follow. It left me with a will and other important estate planning documents, including a living will and power of attorney.
  • The cost of Trust & Will was a fraction of what human attorneys charge, and I was very happy with the self-service experience of creating my will online.
  • Use Trust & Will to create a legal will online in minutes »

A will or trust is an important document that tells the courts, your family, and anyone else what should happen with your money and other assets if you die. 

While people with few assets and responsibilities may not have to worry about a will, anyone with children, other dependents (including pets), or assets (such as property, retirement accounts, or savings) should certainly take the time to lay out a plan for what should happen to their estate.

If we're living through a "retail apocalypse" that spells doom for brick-and-mortar retail, as many have suggested, why are e-commerce leaders like AmazonAlibaba, and JD.com so focused on building their own brick-and-mortar networks?

It's because they want to revitalize physical stores by introducing features associated with online shopping like personalization — and a whopping 65% of consumers said personalization and promotions are most important to their shopping experiences, according to a report from Oracle cited by Chain Store Age.

One selfie across 20 years — Noah Kalina

  • Starting on January 11, 2000, photographer Noah Kalina took a self portrait every day for 20 years.
  • He started the project years before the concept of a "selfie" even existed. It was just called a self portrait back then, and he used cameras with flippable viewfinders so he could see himself before snapping each photo.
  • Kalina only missed 27 out of 7,305 days, and a handful of images from August 2003 were lost in a hard drive crash.
  • After 20 years, Kalina cut the whole archive — some 7,263 photos in all — into an incredible video. The project is known as "Everyday." Check out the video below!

The Trump administration is struggling to explain why the US killed top Iranian general Soleimani — here's all the shifting explanations

Posted: 13 Jan 2020 09:55 AM PST

donald trump trump tower

  • The Trump administration has repeatedly changed its rationale for President Trump's decision to kill Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the infamous commander of Iran's Quds Force, in a drone strike earlier this month.
  • Some aides have insisted that Soleimani and his forces were planning an imminent attack that threatened American lives. Only the president provided more specifics on what was being targeted, but without providing any evidence. Then he and some top advisors seemed to backtrack, saying Soleimani "could have been" targeting US embassies.
  • "I think it would have been four embassies, could have been military bases, could have been a lot of other things too. But it was imminent," he recently told Fox News.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

President Donald Trump ordered a drone strike that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, ratcheting up tensions between the US and Iran, but in the aftermath, the US has struggled to explain and justify why it had the infamous commander was killed.

Soleimani, the former commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Quds Force, was killed early in the morning on Friday, Jan. 3 in Baghdad, Iraq. The strike soured relations between the US and Iraq and led the Iranians to retaliate with a missile attack on US and coalition forces, and as tensions skyrocketed, a passenger jet was accidentally shot down, killing all 176 people on board.

  • Facebook is setting up a new engineering team in Singapore to focus on its lucrative advertising business in China, where businesses buy more than $5 billion in ad space every year. 
  • The move comes with challenges: Facebook is banned in China and must reassure customers worried about the political dynamics. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also clashed with Beijing, pledging to not build data centers in a country with "a track record of violating human rights like privacy or freedom of expression." 
  • However, political tensions have not cooled the advertising giant's regional sales push. Facebook has courted Chinese clients on trips to India and the Middle East, to encourage them to market to customers in those regions using its platform.

Cory Booker quit the 2020 presidential race: Here's who benefits most

Cory Booker, who dropped out of the 2020 presidential election on Monday, managed to both be an incredibly well-liked and satisfactory candidate to people all over the Democratic primary, all while peaking at 5% in the polls last February

His situation was a paradox: Whenever anyone else dropped out of the race, unavoidably one of the candidates who their supporters liked the very most was Booker. When Julian Castro quit, when Kamala Harris quit, when Kirsten Gillibrand quit, invariably a key finding was that their supporters really, disproportionately, remarkably liked Cory Booker, with the New Jersey senator outperforming his overall numbers in the double digits.

The best bottle warmers

Posted: 13 Jan 2020 09:30 AM PST

  • Having a fast and reliable baby bottle warmer at hand is a must for any new parent.
  • After much research, we found the Philips AVENT Fast Baby Bottle Warmer is the best for most people with its super easy-to-use design and consistent milk temperatures without hot spots.
  • If you're looking for the bottles to ensure efficient feeding and a happy baby, check out our guide to the best baby bottles.

When it comes to baby products, you might think a baby bottle warmer is something extra that's not necessary. But when your little one is screaming in the middle of the night for warm milk, having a warmer will save your sanity, and hopefully, some sleep. Pop a bottle in one of these warmers, and you'll have a ready-to-go meal at an ideal temperature.

These gadgets can heat formula and breast milk without hot spots so you don't have to boil water in a pan. If you want a baby food warmer, too, you can invest in one that does both. Some baby bottle warmers come with special features like a digital timer and automatic shut off. When you're traveling or on a playdate, some warmers can be thrown in your diaper bag for smooth warming on the go.

Even though baby bottle warmers come in lots of designs, choosing the perfect one for your specific needs can be challenging. 

When choosing the best baby bottle warmers, I took into consideration five essential criteria: safety features, warming efficiency, cleaning ease, bottle type, and cost. I looked at hundreds of reviews on multiple websites, used my own personal experience as a mom and parenting writer, and asked other moms for feedback.

Some advice I learned as a mom is the type of bottle you use is important. This will affect heating times and can determine the warmer choice. Tommee Tippee bottles, for example, are wider and might not fit into some warmers. It might also be wiser to purchase a warmer after the baby arrives or keep your receipt for an easy exchange.

Here are the best bottle warmers:

Updated on 1/13/2020 by Jen Gushue: Updated prices, links, formatting, and text.

The best bottle warmer overall

Amazon

The Philips AVENT Fast Baby Bottle Warmer is without a doubt the best warmer on the market because it heats the milk thoroughly, is super easy to use, and protects breast milk's nutrients.

With Philips' AVENT bottle warmer, all you have to do is add water to the reservoir, turn the dial, and wait three minutes. It circulates the water continuously to avoid hot spots, giving it a high safety score. Nothing is worse than accidentally feeding your baby scalding milk.

This gentle method ensures even heating and preserves breast milk's nutrients. The AVENT has a defrost mode for frozen milk, too. It's critical to keep in mind that the amount of time it takes to warm a bottle will depend on whether the fluid is cold or frozen, how much is in the bottle, and what kind of container is used. Three minutes might not work each time, but overall, the AVENT works fast and heats nicely.

The bottle warmer fits AVENT bottles and a variety of others, including Tommee Tippee and Comotomo. You can also warm baby food in the warmer, providing a more natural heating option than the microwave. At this price point, you really are getting your money's worth.

While the simple and practical design makes it easy to warm milk in the middle of the night, the warmer doesn't have a timer. Instead, it has a blinking light to signal when the milk is ready. If you're not careful, you could miss the flash and overheat the liquid. I used a timer on my phone to solve this concern.

I'm not the only one who loves the Phillips AVENT. It's one of Mom's Top Picks 2018 on Baby Center. They asked 87,000 discerning parents to choose a warmer, and the AVENT won.

Pros: Super-easy to use, consistent temperatures, affordable, bottle compatibility, high-quality, fast heating, easy to clean

Cons: No loud timer, low-tech



The best budget bottle warmer

Amazon

The First Years 2-in-1 Simple Serve Bottle Warmer has a simple and compact design that looks great on the counter and heats up liquid gold, formula, and baby food fast.

Let's be honest, you'll probably use a bottle warmer for about a year and a half. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends weaning by 18 months to avoid tooth decay. For some, investing in an expensive bottle warmer is a waste of money. If you agree, then the First Years 2-in-1 Simple Serve Bottle Warmer is the right choice for you. For a low cost, you get a highly-recommended warmer that does the job.

All you have to do is fill up the reservoir and wait for the steam to warm up the milk. With its sleek profile, you can place the warmer in the nursery or next to the coffee machine. You can even use the supplied basket to sanitize pacifiers. I don't know how many times I used to pick up pacifiers from the floor every day.

The milk warmer accommodates a wide range of bottles, including Tommee Tippee and Comotomo, so you don't have to worry about your bottle choice. It also has an automatic shutoff, giving the baby product some serious safety points.

However, some users mentioned that it feels a little cheap and is hard to clean. Gunk clogs up the reservoir after a few uses. The reason for this might be using tap water in the repository. Buy a gallon of distilled water and steam it instead.

Pros: Low price, automatic shutoff, compact design, sanitizes pacifiers, fast heating

Cons: Feels cheap, hard to clean



The best bottle warmer for travel

Amazon

The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Portable Travel Baby Bottle Warmer is the perfect warmer for busy moms on the go who need something they can trust.

For babies demanding warmed milk on the go, you'll need the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Portable Travel Baby Bottle Warmer. I love that you can throw the warmer in the bag and go. The simple design doesn't require electricity and makes warming bottles to the perfect temperature at the park, the zoo, or anywhere without an electrical outlet possible.

The portable design reminds me of soup thermoses from the '90s that kids used to take to school, except Tommee Tippee bottle warmer looks like it belongs on the shelves of REI instead of a kid's lunch bag.

The bottle warmer uses a two-part system with a stainless steel thermal flask and a plastic cover. The container holds about 12 ounces of water and keeps the liquid hot for 10 hours.

Before heading out, fill the thermos with hot water. Once you need a bottle, pour the water from the thermal container into the lid. Then place the bottle in the hot water and wait a few minutes. It's essential to test the milk before giving the bottle to your baby. Once that's done, the formula or breast milk is ready to go.

The Tommee Tippee bottle warmer is entirely compatible with your favorite baby bottle, regardless of the brand.

Pros: Easily portable, no electricity needed, simple to use, compatible with all bottle sizes

Cons: Not good for multiple bottles in a row, hot water could spill
