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).
Up to you if you want to believe him, but Steve Jobs has said time and time again that the reason there is no Flash on the iPhone is because Adobe has failed to deliver something that performs remotely acceptably. Again, up to you to believe it but the fact that after all the years they had to make a "light mobile friendly" flash version, you can't really claim this is a first gen and forgive it. They supposedly have been working on mobile versions of Flash since before they started whining publicly about Apple not letting them put whatever they had ready out there.
Sound familiar to Apple, I think Steve is tired of being at the whims of other companies to implement hardware/software Apple relies on. Microsoft with IE, Motorola with PowerPC, IBM with the same, etc.
Still behind id software and their GPL releases of the game engines.
What a troll. id releases its old generation engines as GPL, not the current or even last-generation engines. Unreal Engine 3 is not comparable to the Quake 3 engine, it's more like the id Tech 5 engine, which certainly isn't available for free licensing let alone GPL distribution.
It's why a badly-written Win32 app can't be minimized, usually can't have its window moved, might swallow its mouse pointer, and needs ctrl-alt-delete to be involuntarily killed
This simply isn't true (except perhaps the ctrl-alt-delete part). You can still minimize, maximize, and move a non-responsive application's window, its just that the contents won't be redrawn. The mouse pointer isn't drawn by the application, so it won't ever be 'swallowed' by the window. Also, in Vista and later (and with some display drivers under XP iirc), window contents are buffered by the system so even if an application stops responding, it won't 'blank out' or have weird visual aberrations.
Wow, just stunning. If the lack of an idealized phone were the problem, WinMo wouldn't have anywhere near the marketshare it has. For Android to take over, one simple thing needs to happen - a wider selection of Android phones on a wider selection of providers, at a wide selection of price points.
And Apple's success is because there is such a wide selection of iPhones on a wide selection of providers, at a wide selection of price points?
I understood your question to mean:
How many bones (a rigid organ in the skeleton of vertebrates) does a human body (the physical aspect of human being - in contrast to the organism conceived as a person) have?
This conclusion is based on a single fact in the knowledge base:
206 is the count for the meronym holonym pair bone and human body - agree / disagree
It will even show you how it pieced together known facts to answer your question. It's pretty neat, although you have to register to be a beta tester to use it as of right now.
