Can't everyone just get back to what they're best at: making truckloads of cash?

I mean, Intel beat AMD in the desktop micro space, and NVIDIA beat ATI in the desktop GPU market. The two losers even had to join forces to stay afloat.

Seems to me that everyone would be happier if they just played nice, and counted their money.

Submission + - Critical Security Bug in FireFox-> 1 1

Submission + - Mozilla Delays Firefox 3.0 Beta

dsinc writes: According to PCWorld, "Firefox 3.0's first beta has been delayed at least six weeks, Mozilla Corp. engineers said Sunday, and it now won't appear until the middle of September." Not many details are known at this point, but what Mike Schroepfer, Mozilla's vice president of engineering says ("Talos is showing a ~18 percent increase in [memory] footprint and informal dogfooding confirms things are currently worse on the trunk") should be sufficient reason to get out of the Holding-your-breath department. http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,134282-c,mozilla /article.html
