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).

I only used Go as an example of a somewhat safer (type checking, bounds checking, etc) language.
I never said I want a Go implementation, in fact I alluded to the fact that Go can't even build shared libraries.
... in a safe(er) language.
I wish the Go language supported building of shared libraries. Would be a nice implementation language for software like this.
Why Dart? Why not a language agnostic runtime and then have Dart target that?
Then when some new (or old) language wants to run in the browser you don't have to update your browser for it.
I don't have to upgrade my CPU to run a new language.
I don't have to upgrade my OS to run a new language.
Why should I have to upgrade my browser?... its time that browsers have a nice interface that any code could hook into.
How about LLVM or something as a standard?
I think Google is already doing this with Native Client... though I think they sandbox/sanitize the generated machine code rather than the LLVM bytecode.
I just ordered 5 wireless chargers for a grand total of $85 as stocking stuffers for my family members with Nexus 4's and Nexus 5's.
I think they came from China since they're just being delivered today. Reviews of them on newegg were good. We'll see.
I just can't see spending $50 on a charger unless its the size of a mousepad and can charge multiple thins.
It wears out your port. I wish these phones came with tethered but removable inserts for charging.
My brother for example works in a pizza restaurant... he gets flour stuck up his charger all the time and has to pick it out.
no need to publicize it... just compile all your code with -Wall -Werror
I have 1920x1080 on a 15.4 screen and it seems perfect for a laptop.
1366x768 at 10.1 is actually a higher DPI count but then you're lacking real estate.
The price seems right though for what you're getting. I'd just prefer to pay a little more, say $50, to get a 1600x900.
it probably would have fared a little better if they had allowed other than metro sw on it though.. but they ran out of time to provision that, so they took the easy route.
They should have modified Visual Studio to produce fat binaries that include both ARM and Intel binaries.
I think this is what Apple did to XCode during their PPC/x86 transition.
Or they could have tried to get Visual Studio to leverage LLVM and ship bitcode so things could be ever further future-proofed and extend to more than just 2 architectures.
They missed a great opportunity by not letting RT/ARM run desktop applications. And it was a arbitrary decision too, not a technical one as RT has been hacked to run in desktop mode.
Yeah, but they use build servers.... not personal computers.
Netflix only works on whatever they decide to port their application to... how is Youtube any different?
At least YouTube uses webm and html5... if Microsoft wanted to they could skin the hell out of the web version.
...It is just one tab over from "Ubuntu for phones"
They're talking about being open, yet they haven't released "Ubuntu for phones" in any product or any source.
Ubuntu for phones would be great 5 years ago, but there are already too many Android apps / games out there the people will want.
I don't want Ubuntu for phones, I want it for Android like they advertised a year ago.
Perhaps these two ideas will merge at some point. People will want to run Android applications.
The GNOME 2 experience defaults to two tool bars, one top and one bottom. The first tweak I usually do is to add a drop-down window list to the upper-right corner and remove the lower tool bar.
Android seeks to minimize the UI impact and it does a nice job of it. A minimal row of buttons give the user a single and simple home from which to go home, switch apps, go backward and open a context menu. Swiping from the top of the screen is a useful feature which enables the user to quickly access contols and status information.
These are two bars in Android, much like the ones in Gnome that you tweak to consolidate.
I find that in landscape mode on my Nexus 7 these two bars take up entirely too much real estate
There is something to be said about lines being drawn with 1 pixel height or width even if they are vector graphics.
Makes things look nice and crisp.

just realized this was about video codecs
Absolutely I need a phone at my desk.
The geniuses who built our brand new "green" building put coatings on the windows to block UV rays and save of heating/cooling.
I have 4 bars of HSPA+ standing outside of the main door and a big X, no signal, once inside that main door.
I can forward my calls to my desk phone but I miss all my texts until I leave for the day.
