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).
[YouTube] now uses its HTML5 video player by default in Google's Chrome, Microsoft's IE11, Apple's Safari 8, and in beta versions of Mozilla's Firefox browser. At the same time, YouTube is now also defaulting to its HTML5 player on the web.
You mean the web you browse with Google's Chrome, Microsoft's IE11, Apple's Safari 8, and in beta versions of Mozilla's Firefox? Am I missing something here, or are these sentences completely redundant?
Its that dept of redundancy dept thing.
why is Apache still spawning processes for every request that comes in... don't they realize the overhead of that??
That statement is so obviously and blatantly wrong, it calls into question the rest of what you are saying that might have had some validity.
The problem is that the US courts ruled that US law does apply in Ireland because Microsoft has a presence in both countries.
And you think that somehow the ruling of a US court absolves Microsoft from Irish law?
Yes but these aren't 2 distinct entities. Does MS Ireland own MS US, or are they wholly separate entities, or does MS US own / control MS Ireland? It would seem the latter. I'm sure there's all kinds of shenanigans done for tax purposes, etc, but its part of MS, nonetheless, and the parent is US based, and under US legal jurisdiction. That said, I hope they loose on this. A really bad precedent would be set and probably be detrimental to long term US business doing anything outside the US.
Yes, most Linux distributions seem to have used -tcp nolisten for quite a while. ssh -X still works fine and is very useful (IMHO).
Very long time. Most typical server installations don't even install X, so if you are wanting to exploit this, you are going to have to look really hard for somebody on your LAN running an ancient distro who's disabled the firewall and other remote auth stuff.
Yah, would that be the "if your battery is at less than 99% everything is going to go slow and suck" feature?
That is purely device dependent. Some Android hardware sucks out loud for sure.
No - it's Microsoft's incarnation of Apple's AppNap feature. (think of it as an aggressive and automatic version of the *nix renice function with a suspend feature latched onto it.)
Sounds a lot like the Android platform things that's been around for awhile. You configure battery life left, and a bunch of stuff that you can limit if its below that point.
The vast amount of apps out there are not tablet optimized however, and the majority would actually be hard to use without a keyboard and mouse.
And there is the virus / security thing, the difficulty in keeping MS bound applications updated with the OS, the MS tax and so on. The ecosystem is too much of a 90's holdover for people doing most things.
Also means you should avoid those services. My company had to rule out MailChimp for email specifically because they wouldn't support those protocols. It's unfathomable to me that a company who's entire business revolves around sending email does not actually have a way to let you use these.
I just looked at a Mailchimp delivered "Newsletter" and it has SPF, DKIM, and DomainKey.
Anyone know of such a service that supports the rsync protocol (either over ssh or any other rsync-friendly transport). If so - bandwidth limitations don't suck so bad; since you'd be typically just streaming incremental changes.
Yea, Dropbox. Use the Linux client. I kinda feel like I am missing something here
Doesn't one just use MongoDB and Solr automatically becomes web scale?
Speaking of web scale what's wrong with Google? Google custom search is really easy to set up (free or not free de-branded), and just works really well. The only use-case I can see for something like this, would be for stuff that can't go "web scale", because its private. What else are people using it for?
Chrome has plenty of innovations but it easily becomes a resource hog and bogs down the system. IE 10 keeps chugging along. Microsoft isn't quite the microsoft of the past. These improvements should be felt the most in the mobile space where they clearly have the best browser. Their only problem? it might all be too late if they can never get out from under the shadow of their reputation.
Yea, but until they release Android and iOS versions, its still going to be a niche consumer product.
I guess you cocksucking faggots should have used Microsoft Windows Server instead of something as insecure as Linux.
For best results use Microsoft Windows, faggots!
Well, ask Home Depot and Target their opinions. I am sure they are right there with you.
