Hell, remember that Apple didn't originally allow native apps on the iPhone. SO they've done it to themselves before.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Its particularly bad in Korean, where the words tend to alternate consonant-vowel-consonant with the consonants on the left and vowels on the right. It just ends up being an exponential explosion of possibilities without much branch pruning. Its also harder in agglutative languages than non-agglutatives, because you can't have a simple dictionary of all words.
But in the end it doesn't matter. If you actually use a keyboard, 2 features are must haves- the first is that you need to be able to type the occasional word. The second is that you need to know where the keys are, so you can type-swype efficiently. That precludes a new keyboard layout, as you know more or less where every key on a qwerty is- you don't on an "optimized" layout and you'll take months to learn. An alternate keyboard doesn't have that much time, it has a few hours max to get you to love it.
Disclaimer: I worked at Swype from 2010-2012.
Flow is Swiftkey's knock off of Swype. It probably has some differences in the algorithm that will make it better for some words and worse for others, but its just a knock off.
It skews highly towards the websites users. Hardly surprising. But when you consider that googling almost any programming question will lead to an answer on SO in the top 3 or 4 hits, I'm not sure how you can avoid visiting the site at least once a day on average.
You have to hit it once. That deletes the entire tab. Unless you have your editor set to do something weird, like turn tabs into spaces.
Yet another reason not to use Python. Guido made a major fuck up there- if he was going to use whitespace as syntax, he should have made the type and amount part of the language spec. Not doing so has wasted more developer time than any other language issue I've ever seen.
It doesn't need to be built into the phone. If people find it useful, connecting via USB or Bluetooth would be sufficient. Then if people use that it can move into the phone in another 3-5 years.
Tabs were more likely to cause problems in the old days, when editors did things that were ridiculous like expand them to 8 spaces. Nowdays with everything configurable, it isn't much of an issue. The reason why the older more experienced people prefer spaces is that they learned to dislike tabs in the bad old days. In 10 years that argument will be dead with tabs winning.
Speak for yourself. I find the improved productivity of easily asking questions and overhearing your team's conversations blows away the loss due to occassional noise. And its a hell of a lot more fun to interact with coworkers than stare at the monitor unblinking.
Sure it does- we'll know what we're buying. And when they have to advertise 3 GB caps, the first carrier to offer 4 GB for the same price will get an advantage, forcing them to compete on data caps. But right now most people think they actually have "unlimited".
No, it is absolutely for a government agency, as everything in this post proves shows you are NOT capable of making such a decision. Thanks for proving my point for me.
And living near San Francisco, there's streets my mother or grandmother wouldn't be able to climb. Even most locals won't walk in those areas. We can't control nature, but that's no excuse for not doing better than that when we can. Out of all the point of the ADA that could use fixing, you picked the one that makes perfect sense to complain about?
The 9th circuit is the largest court with the most cases. So of course it has more overturned. When viewed by percentages they're one of the least overturned courts. The whole "9th is the most overturned court" meme is from Republican wishful thinking trying to downplay importance of cases out of there,
I wish I had some modpointa today. Competing for driver attention=causingcrashes=people die. Unless your app is for passengers only, it shouldn't fucking exist.
People who want cross-platform on iOS and Android have had it since day 1. Write your logic in C or C++. Its how cross-platform has been done for decades. Then write a wrapper in whatever language the platform uses for the UI.
If your complaint is that you want cross-platform Ui code as well- no you really don't. The two platforms are so different that you'll never get an app with a good look and field without writing 2 separate UIs. Unless you want to release an Android like UI for Apple (which will get hatred from users) or an iOS like UI for Android (which will get hatred from users).
