That's why it was revolutionary!
Why don't the copyright-holders publish lyrics for everything on the web themselves? Then they'd kill demand for other lyrics sites and get ad revenues.
I've heard about the pledge of allegiance. That's just plain creepy.
Funny - I switched on my computer, intending to look up whether Firefox has the audio API implemented so that I can use it for my next project, and the first thing I saw was this update which added exactly that
The things I'm hoping to see soon from Firefox are CSS3 grids and support for multiple cookie jars.
Maybe he's trying to start a vigilante honeypot.
What's a "Richard" in Cockney slang?
It's a common nickname for "Richard", and predates the slang by quite a bit. In fact, the whole reason "dick" is used to refer to a boy-part is because it is such a common and well-established boy-name. The names "Willie" and "Fanny" came to be used for "penis" and "vagina" for the exact same reason (although the latter is used slightly differently in the US).
I'm opted out by default. The setting is unchecked without me having to change anything. Presumably it's the same for Peter H.S. too.
North American, for English speaking parts of North America.
French speaking parts and Spanish speaking parts call it something else.
(Yes, Virginia, North America is more than just the US and (anglophone) Canada, it also includes Quebec, France and Mexico).
Short answer: no.
Long answer: they've already made most (but not all) of their own Steam games compatible. They have no such control over the rest of the games on Steam but they aim to encourage as many other devs as possible to do the same.
Proof-reading fail. Sorry
The missing word was "recommended". They have always recommended alternatives that do not involve trusting them. Here's an example from that same FAQ page:
What if I don't trust you? Is it still safe for me to use MEGA?
If you don't trust us, you cannot run any code provided by us, which precludes opening MEGA in your browser and entering your login credentials. However, due to MEGA's end-to-end encryption paradigm, you can safely use client applications written by someone you trust.
All those other companies gave no illusion of being secure.
Neither did Mega. They explain these very risks and others right in the FAQ and since they launched have using alternatives that do not involve trusting them. Providing a interface is a significant convenience, but you can't trust anything truly secret to a script someone else can remotely replace on a whim.
I agree that, since I'm going to get a dedicated graphics card anyway, I'd much prefer some more focus CPU. That being said, an APU could open new possibilities for using OpenCL and the like without bogging down the main CPU cores or competing against graphics for the GPU's precious shader units. Now I'm intrigued - I wonder if this arrangement would actually work...
The link in TFA says that Przemyslaw Wegrzyn is from Poland. No idea about Dhiru Kholia but that's not a typical name for the US.
Hey, at least they're making progress. 13 years ago Windows was up to 2000, now they've gone all the way down to 8. That's 1992 versions! At this rate they'll hit zero in just 19 days.
