I wonder if the port to Raspberry Pi had anything to do with this development?
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).
If you're talking about the one on 70, I completely agree with you that it's bullshit to have it there. I pass by it a few times a week, and once when I was the only one for a few thousand feet passing by it, I tested how accurate their speedometer was, and it turns out it was about 5 mph higher than my own speedometer.
Same, my Nexus S 4G's Market is still at 2.3.6, even after clearing the Market's data, cache, and uninstalling updates(and subsequently installing them again by running it).
It looks like it's not actually a real port of the music manager, rather a Wine port with their wrapper stuff, like Picasa.
It's because they're not skipping fullscreen applications from compositing, like Compiz does.
Unfortunately, while attempts were made by the community to negotiate the co-existence of xbox and open source projects under the same name, MGS flatly refused to allow this and, just hours after the original announcement, the disgruntled ex-dev team made the decision to fork Tremulous. The resulting project, "Librelous", a portmanteau of Libre and Tremulous, promises to breath new life into the game with brand new music, sounds and high res graphics, in addition to the much anticipated flashlight."
Pirates will just run a cracked version of Windows with WAT disabled, or cracked in some way. You're severely underestimating these people.
How would it reduce the number of pirated installations with malicious code if you *don't* reduce their functionality? The normal user would just click the little X in the corner to make the annoying nag screen go away.
I sure hope they put some sort of ring around the props(like a computer cooling fan) to keep them from striking near objects. I'm not saying I'm a terrible driver, but there are such people who can't drive worth a crap. If everyone had one of these I'm sure people would be bumping into buildings in their takeoff or landing procedures. Some sort of hard rubber bumper ring around the props(to prevent damage) would suffice. I'm not sure how it would affect flight capability though(I'm not an aerospace engineer).
It's a codename for the new Zune.
With blackjack! And hookers!
Molten rock and burrowed predators are under the feet? Call me old fashioned (and it won't be the first time) but I'll just float, thank you.
For the 20 years of my life in the US, I have never seen a car burning on the side of the road. I think you just got lucky. A lot of us drive imports anyway.
And so begins Louis, Nessus, Teela, and Speaker's journey...
How about Libraries of Congress?
