Defense Distributed attained a federal firearms license back in March so when it released the 3D-printable CAD files for “the Liberator,” everything ws legal,... more »

Recent earnings tech companies announcements have blamed softness in government spending on weak returns.

Legacy software applications are associated with significant upfront costs, while upgrade and maintenance cycles will multiply those initial acquisition costs by numerous factors. While traditional software can be customized to suit the needs of individual enterprises, the disadvantages of doing so... more »
