Is this the type of crap we can come to expect now that CmdrTaco is gone?
No. If it makes me feel superior to IE users, the story must run.
How appropriate. You post like a cow.
Your definition of "troll" is astoundingly wrong.
People who suffer from Aspergers or Autism (like many Slashdot users) are unable to read those cues in real life, much less on the internet. They are victims of a disease, but your definition lumps them in with people who try to raise the hackles of others on purpose.
If someone does not understand the nuance of your post, it does not mean they are a troll. The inability to read such nuance over the internet is very much akin to Aspergers and Autism. The person on the other end is working at a disadvantage.
It isn't nice to mock the mentally disabled, but you seem to think it's fine. You, sir, are the exact kind of person this story was written about.
This story sucks. Your all idiots.
of course, that this 'future' is now, and we've been watching and waiting for it to get to this point for, well, all of history
But when will "then" be "now"?
Oh lawd! Somebody catch me. I've caught the vapors!
Does it even matter as Mozilla-based browsers become less important as Internet usage moves towards Webkit-based browsers on mobile devices?
No ST cartoon.
The Osborne 1 was an amazing machine, but the Osborne 2 was going to be even more amazing. Since it never got a chance to be released, comparing a second generation iPad to the Oz1 seems a bit unfair.
What about apples and oranges? These have never been fairly compared.
That's a feature.
No one is coming out with a browser that takes its time. Until now. FF4 takes the concept of performance and turns it on its head.
Aren't you tired of websites that instantly display? Don't you like reading your favorite site leisurely? What if you could have that plus random crashes and uncontrollable memory leaks?
What would you pay for something like that? Would you pay $100 for software of that quality? What if I told you that you could have all this and more for the low, low price of $59.95?
That's right! A slow browser, massive memory leaks, and random crashes in your computer today for only $59.95!
If you act now, I'll throw in a set of plug-ins that will turn your modern day CPU into the legacy system of yesteryear!
Firefox 4! Bring computing back to the speed of life.
Call now. Operators are standing by.
Tablets (the separate species from TabletPCs) are meant to be take-anywhere devices. That iPod or Android phone in your pocket? That's a tablet.
It isn't meant to be the device that you rely on to do your heavy work. It is a portal device, to get you to important data immediately, wherever you are.
Spock doesn't use a tricorder tablet because it has a million features and CPU to spare. He uses it because it is handy and can connect to the Millenium Falcon when it needs to perform more CPU-intensive calculations.
If you think your laptop is better, then that's great for you. But the fact of the matter is that you have simply been left behind technologically. You are a relic.
I just got an iPhone 4. I really don't know why I waited so long. I suppose I was just happy with my previous phone.
But one of the key reasons I bought the iPhone was because of its MP3 capabilities. I have a lot of CDs and wanted to listen to them on the road, so I decided to burn all the CDs to the iTunes.
Anyway, what I'm getting at is that buying the CD gives me something that iTunes music downloaders don't get. That is unlimited access to my music without DRM and without having to pay some online service for it.
I really like the Genius automatic playlist generator. I use it to all the time. If you're buying an iPhone, I recommend you also buy CDs so that you don't have the DRM problem mentioned in the article.
Manning sold out his own country for nothing more than self-satisfaction. I'm glad to see him getting charged with aiding the enemy.
I hope he gets the death penalty.
