Note that Atari VCS 2600 can only do 60 fps (NTSC) or 50 fps (PAL/SECAM). It can't slow down, because this console's display is pure real time (aka "racing the beam"). All the other consoles were able to slow down when needed, but 2600 was 100% stable.
With the Amstrad PCW, one was able to enter Greek characters, AFAIR.
FireFox7, aka FinalFantasy7, will have a huge step forward dealing with memory. FF6 doesn't have such nice awaited features. I'll skip #6.
More and more new apps are iOS4.x only. Old compatible apps are being upgraded and some are now iOS4.x only. And iTunes upgrades apps without checking compatibility first (it overwrites old compatible ones with new incompatible ones without a warning !).
People with iPhone1, at iOS313, are doomed.
The old first iPhone (Edge) is still at iOS313. With a lot of bugs, with a lot of security holes. Apple should really give an iOS314 with fixes ! At least four millions of these iDevices are still running.
...Less space than a nomad. Lame.
And expensive !
Checklist so far, from beta1 to beta6:
- Disk Trashing. A lot. To death. No fix.
- Cookies eating. All erased. Randomly. No fix.
- Very few extensions ready. Raw back Firefox riding. Valkyrie needs extensions, badly. Can't use it.
"Back to Firefox 3", is it the only way ?
(Firefox4 progress looks like Vista's).
Apple stopped firmware updates for iPhone2G (edge). It is blocked at iOS313, forever.
So, iPhone2G misses a lot of security updates. The old edge iPhone is really full of holes.
And nobody will secure it.
Steve, please, help !!
My cat's sandbox is the right place for Adobe's products.
Too heavy, too slow, too buggy, too dangerous, etc.
Remember WinG under Windows 3.1 ? That was DirectX v0.0.0 ! Very fast 2D graphics for games and apps, zooming, real-time dithering from true colors to 256 colors, etc. Some apps used WinG to be even better and faster (Paint Shop Pro, etc).
History is the same today !
