Does that require a 300mb app or a 3mb widget though?
Quicktime, like iTunes is also incredibly slow, unless it's playing QT files. It has zero place on any geeks hard drive unless it's a necessity (there are substitutes). My secondary q6600/560ti machine would have trouble playing 1080p on Quicktime, and no problems on ANYTHING else.
It's called sarcasm, Google it.
No, it allows for plugins to be integrated into the TCP/IP stack for as many protocols as you want, yet iTunes deliberately uses it's own protocol despite the fact that I have never seen ANY other application try to do that.
It's because Apple ported their own frameworks and API's to windows as substitutes to Windows' own in a decidedly 'F U' style move to Microsoft. The API was made to a functional state so that porting would be trivial but was probably deliberately poorly optimized, after all the slower Windows goes to the average consumer, the faster a Mac looks in comparison.
But if I satisfy you too much, you'll never need another thing I make and I won't get any more money!!
Well both MS, IBM and Apple have quasi-monopolies created by their ecosystem or applications so I think you raise a moot point.
Erm, who on planet Windows expects a Windows Search of
If you have a problem with Windows not searching a folder, right click it>properties>Advanced>tick 'allow index'. The folders that have that unticked by default aren't 'Approved Directories'. They are system folders and it's probably done so when Grandma (or you) saves a file and names it the same as an important system file, she doesn't have Win32 directory files popping up next to it in the search and therefore doesn't delete something important.
If you don't know how to use your software to start with, you can't complain that you don't know how to use Win8 just because it showed you that fact.
The problem is that the interface isn't really that bad. It's the OS itself that I disagree with. An App Store, Secure Boot, and various other things that preclude Apple themed world domination are the main qualms I have against the OS. I run it on my Laptop, and most of the time its the same or better than 7. And people who disagree are usually the old people or those who actually don't know how to use their OS.
Consider this. In the design of the UI there are two ways a command was accessed. Menu access and Shortcut. Slow and Fast. Beginner and Advanced. Every Single shortcut is the same, hitting the WinKey and then trying the first letters of your program will still bring it up and open it... What the hell is everyone still bitching about?
There is no problem. Just bad PR and a bunch of idiots over there trying to be Apple and not tell anyone how to use their product or even respond to the press battering it down.
We drew up the plans for a orbital highway a long time ago, with hubs stationed in geosynchronous orbit with lasers providing power transport for them, but it requires a LOT of carbon nanofiber to hold it in place.
Realistically, this would be a modification to an existing weapon, so a thieer could just reverse the modification or replace the parts of the gun that were modified. I can't see you getting this ting permanently on any production handgun in a way that couldn't just be removed.
The government don't keep their server backbone at the same or even similar internet locations to the mainframes that actually hold this data, and any applications that will be receiving this data would go straight to the database, because it is more secure and protects in the event that the webserver is compromised. In the UK, where we have the NHS (I would hazard a guess that they are both very similar in actual implementation, else someone isn't using best practice over there) the webservers which would allow the common man to recover his records would use a web app to authenticate and recover the records from this remote server as well. That servers' multiple IPs would be liable to change whenever it wanted. The only thing that would have to stay fixed was the update servers. This helps evade DDoS and otherwise external attacks.
Missed the point completely. And I mis-said a few things.
ECC: I originally meant to say: pointless unless running a machine which you CAN reboot less than once a week.
Only actually useful when you either really need stupid GB of RAM, or you will be running an program 24/7 which happens in core server room machines but generally not on workstations. In my environment I have never seen a machine that you strictly CANNOT reboot for weeks else you lose everything. I know they exist, particularly in the heavy rendering and scientific fields, both of which have distributed processing in all examples I know of.
SMP: SSDs would just as effectively fix that problem. Most of that wait time is HDD spin latency based anyway, unless you are repeatedly and randomly accessing a 150GB+ working set then DDR would do the same but at lower latency (as ECC adds latency and so does SMP), and if that is the case I really think your product dev should have a real hard look at nodes.
And the part about closed source and vendors is an importantpoint that I did miss, almost deliberately, with the assumption that alternatives exist. Unfortunately I know as much as you probably do that that sn't always the case
Depends how you look at it. The BBC is not private, so it's both. It serves the state and is pro-independance and capitalism in very republican ways, yes promotes big gov't and things like welfare in very liberal ways. You really have to look at all the programs it makes to see that it is very unbiased as a whole. It has employees that like one side and employees that like the other.
You have to remember that they give out a big commission yearly to people who make public serving documents.
I can't see the math for that working. Ivy League costs something like $50k a year, probably more. If you can make that waiting tables AND have enough money to study then you should stick to waiting tables, because you have one hell of a talent there.
