I find it funny to recall that, only a few years ago, it was iTunes that was the enemy according to the big labels - and they did everything they could to undermine Apple's influence.

They figured out how to monetize that... and I'm sure they'll figure out how to turn Spotify into a profit generator as well.

I've used the Surface Pro keyboard covers, both cheap and expensive. It's amazing that anyone who's actually used one would tout that piece of crap as a feature. It's horrible!

And seriously - who wants to lug around a two pound tablet? if you want a Windows laptop, just get one of those Yoga things.

Comment: "Better Licensing"? (Score 1) 319

Come on - who really cares about MIT versus GPL licensing in this context? And by "who" I mean "people who manage and use databases as part of their paid job"?

And why does anyone care what someone writing for Dice says on this topic? I read the article, and it doesn't sound like the author has even used any of the features he's decided favor postgres.

What's next - a Dice article on emacs vs. vi?

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
