Am I the only one who finds this less amusing than it could be, given Google's astounding lack of foresight on killing Reader and other services? I'm surprised they didn't put a disclaimer on Google Nose saying "Google Nose will be closing April 2, 2013."
What the...? Then we learned and put impenetrable doors between the cockpit and the cabin. Box cutters won't work anymore. Next straw man please?
My understanding is that all browsers on iOS are required to use WebKit. Mozilla uses Gecko. Being open source isn't the issue.
Precisely why would Microsoft Office need DirectX? a 3D spreadsheet maybe? Maybe a really awesome animated book report?
You gave up on the service you didn't use.
Stop trying to drag us into the past. The future is now. You just think of the numbers and they'll appear in the spreadsheet.
I don't know. Some bullshit I read on a tech blog.
Apple just invented this option. Linux never had it. Apple invented it because I saw in an Apple commercial that it's a cool new feature that they just invented.
Yeah, and they're mightily pissed? And then what are they going to do? They're going to go purchase a new Apple computer because the old one's broke. Which is exactly what Apple wants everyone to do -- purchase one of their toys every single year.
The reason they don't want it on DVD is because a physical medium is outside their control.
Are you kidding me? Did they think that customers would want to have their every move logged into their phones? No.
This was by design. It took the collective efforts of some hackers finding out the technical aspects of it; a subsequent public uproar; and a nastygram from a US Senator. This isn't some benign misreading of consumer demand. Apple knew exactly what the hell they were doing.
You thought this was short? It took them a week to respond, let alone whatever they're doing to mitigate it.
Make cities denser, cheaper, more accessible to families with better schools & playgrounds, etc. Get rid of suburban sprawl by zoning more parks and greenways. Maybe build some summer cottages / timeshares so people can still get away "to the country". Done! All the other countries are doing it
yeah, "Done!" It's just that simple! "Done!"
This was the first thing I did. If I want to use Chrome, I'll use Chrome.
Change for change's sake.
Tabs STILL are not in their own processes like Chrome has done since day one. It does look like closing tabs reallocates memory though. So at least that seems to be fixed (it's been promised since, what, version 2?).
And this time it only took me one add-on (Status-4-Evar) to regain lost functionality.
I first played the game at the age of 11 in early 1989. I'll never forget this game. Mostly, I'll never forget that feeling of being completely absorbed into the game, as if the outside world no longer existed. I remember finishing an extremely long session (maybe 4-5 hours, which is kind of a lot for a kid), and going outside into the warm springtime. I recall thinking..."wow, the outside and fresh air and sunshine still exist. what IS all this?"
Making that experience all the more special is the fact that it doesn't happen to me anymore, and probably never will. Getting old is hell.
Probably no one will see this reply, but I'm looking at the Ninja Gaiden video on AVGN now.
Holy christ does this bring back memories. Stage 6-2 is giving him the biggest problem, and I remember the exact spot in the game where he loses it. Keep in mind this is almost 20 years ago that I played thru it, but it's burned in my mind. Wow.
