In the News "Ferdinand A. Porsche, who designed the original Porsche 911, the snazzy, powerful sports car that became the lasting signature of the German automobile company founded by his grandfather and later run by his father, died on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria. He was 76." I believe only Italians can design beautiful cars (I mean, game over, kids), but there's no denying that the 911 is a true icon. Cars technically don't have a place on OSNews, but Ferdinand Porsche's passing cannot go by unmentioned.

Jim Marshall died on the 5th April 2012 and has far more importance to your average programmer than Porsche. Without Marshall, no Hendrix, and most that followed: http://www.blamepro.com/mar/Famous-recording-artists-performers-gui... and that's just scratching the surface.)

I won't cry over a car, but you'll have to tear my guitar from my cold dead hands.
