the world moved on. When the N900 came out, it was one of the best phones available, both in package and in software. But it has been over four years now. The world has moved on. It has moved on to slimmer phones, larger screens, not to mention better touch screens (yes, I have used the N900, and the screen is way worse than the touch screen of my Galaxy Nexus). I type faster with Swype than I ever did with the QWERTY-keyboard, the screen is better, it fits better in my pocket, it is lighter, etc.
Being compromised isn't the issue. The Linux kernel has been compromised as well.
The issue here, is that there is a backdoor being built-in deliberately. That could compromise trust.
Given Zynga's code of ethics (or lack thereof), I would wager this e-mail found its way into "their" product by way
No, it was the email given in the standard Apache 500 Internal Server Error message, as you can see in the article. They put ***@themepark.com as contact address on the fb.themepart.zynga.com server.
It was a configuration mistake, not a stolen site.
It would really depend on the popularity (and existence) of Apple in 40-50 years. I think this thing wouldn't have raked in so much money if Apple did go bankrupt in the late nineties.
As technology goes, the Apple I is not that revolutionary. Not like the first mouse or first transistor.
I think having mostly small incremental changes in new full version numbers has really upset some people's sense of normal software conventions and their brains have melted.
It is amazing that these so-called "smart people" and "nerds" here on slashdot cannot grasp just a different way of numbering things. I have been amazed about that before, the nerd community is extremely conservative. Every innovation or new idea is bad at first and has a really hard time getting adjusted to.
For me, the numbering scheme Firefox uses is actually easier. Firefox is "done". Every feature they add or list of bugs they find is grouped together and lumped into a new version. That new version will be oldversion+1. It is extremely simple. You see this in many other software projects, the Linux kernel being one as well. It will probably never see 4.x (and if it does, it will be arbitrary, like the 3.x release). Java is doing it, Internet Explorer is doing it, hardware like iPhone is doing it, Ubuntu is doing it. All these things are "done" and upgrading won't (shouldn't) break anything.
Software development follows a asymptotic line; in the beginning many things change and there is the need to subclasses updates (using major.minor.build), later in the lifecycle of the project, changes are smaller or less intrusive. There simple is no need to have such large granularity in version numbers.
Hell, I don't even know which version of Firefox or the Linux kernel I am using. Everything just works and I hardly see any changes after an update.
No one will be able to spell your product name correctly if you use a weird combination of upper and lower case letters.
You don't need to focus on the fact that it is a DE. In fact, you already decided that when you came up with a name, instead of an acronym. Make a choice: is it an acronym, or a proper name? You can't have both, it confuses.
Just name it "Klyde".
Only people with small screens say that!
Read again. I am in the Netherlands. There is no Wal-Mart here.
That's because you work stocking shelves at Wal-Mart.
No. I work as the CEO of a industrial automation company in the Netherlands. We actually sell these things, and are well informed on what the market has to offer. Even the suppliers of barcode scanners agree that there are just a few Android devices.
Show progress of the work, not the time. You never know what other things the machine is doing, and is better to give no estimate than a bad one.
And don't suffice with a bar, also provide information on what the process is doing.
Windows CE didn't fail. It is all over industrial handheld devices (barcode scanners mainly, but also embedded computers). I have yet to see a multitude of Android / Windows Phone devices. There are some, but the large majority is Windows CE5.
My moter always warned me about fast women.
Nice, in-context typo.
No voting system, no "highest votes on top", no threading,
I use the printer at work for personal printing, but since I own the company it is also my printer
I choose "my own printer" because it fits the bill best.
It builds character.
For the parents yes. They have to get up in the middle of the night to calm them down. Our kids don't see any TV after dinner, just so WE can have a decent night's sleep.
