I'm pretty sure Firefox turned around and finished Firefox. *sigh*
https://www.google.com/wallet/ [google.com] : "An easier way to pay. Google Wallet makes it easy to pay - in stores, online or to anyone in the US with a Gmail address. It works with any debit or credit card, on every mobile carrier".
For Google Wallet, this is true. But NFC and Google Wallet are only tied together in certain Apps and for certain purchases. One of my favorite stores takes Google Wallet / NFC which would be great, except the damn store is a Faraday cage and I can't actually use it there.
Yes, those of us using CP/M on our VT102s can't just pipe everything through more "more" you insensitive clod!
Beta was unfinished, everyone knew that, so the grousing that somehow it was "clearly inferior" or would break Slashdot was completely misplaced. Slashdot made it clear from the start that this was being put out for feedback purposes, not because it was feature complete. They said it wasn't feature complete.
It's possible to have capslock functionality without giving it its own key. What about Alt-Numlock for that tiny subset of situations where it's necessary?
(Yay I posted an XKCD at last! That means I automatically get +6 Insightful!)
Alas constants tend to also have a lot of digits in them, so you'd win on the underscores, but lose for the other non-alphas.
Maybe it's time underscore was its own key anyway...
If Apple ever sells OS X for non Apple hardware, then sure. But as of now, given it requires non-commodity hardware that most people don't have, it may well increase marketshare, but it's not going to take over the world in the same way Windows has.
I've been sitting here at my freelance gig in front of my PC (a 8600/300 w/64 Megs of RAM) for about 20 minutes now while it attempts to copy a 17 Meg file from one folder on the hard drive to another folder. About 30 minutes. About 10 minutes. About 5 minutes. About 5 hours. About 4 minutes. 11 seconds...

But that's beyond most people's abilities.
Plus, paying for advertising is easier.
I wouldn't worry about negative push back for saying you like a particular release of Windows. Windows 7 was fairly well received around these parts too.
Windows 10, at least going by features, seems to be the first Desktop Windows that's genuinely exciting since Windows 95. While there was a major architectural change with the move to NT for 2000 and XP, it didn't seem to impact the end user experience as much. And 8 was genuinely interesting, but was ultimately a tablet operating system.
So I'm looking forward to using it. And hoping desperately the reliability isn't as bad as it sounds.
Then Microsoft will have to make yet another new version of Windows to undo the damage. Or, finally, the mass exodus to platforms like Ubuntu will have happened by then, which would be no bad thing if Canonical could fix/replace Unity.
Maybe, but that's not going to help here. Despite the headline, the article is about the publisher of the content delaying the loading of the page to screw advertisers, not the advertisers trying to screw the readers.
If the publisher is delaying the page loading process, then it doesn't matter if you have adblock or not, you're going to see delays.

An Intel spokesperson categorically denied that it was a phase-change memory process or a memristor technology. Spin-transfer torque was also dismissed. Whatever it is, Intel and Micron have been developing it for about ten years.
It has happened over and over and over again, and seems to be the hallmark of this decade in tech: take a working project...
Of course, there's a good case to be made that the existing code base should just be fixed, namely:
- Remove sillier numeric limits for D1.
- Unicode. It's 2015, there's no excuse. Page widening is not a problem with CSS's max-width. - Some CSS clean up.
Which would probably not take anything like as much time as Beta was going to, but, oh well...
