Well Silverlight doesn't crash my computer either. Granted thats because the only site I've ever seen that uses Silverlight is Netflix. I imagine if Flash was never used it wouldn't slow my computer down to a crawl, either.
As a fellow Canadian I think we're getting off topic here, but I think you mean Eastern Canada. Here in the west it's pretty decent. I'm a pretty cheap guy, so only have the 50 Meg service Shaw offers (I think its like $60, so cheap being relative), but for $10 I can double it to 100 Meg. My cap is like 400 Gigs too. 100 Meg.. no idea what that cap is. If Shaw ever packed up and I had to use the other guys, Telus, I'd probably cry, but so far I'm quite happy with Shaw. Not Google Fiber (or Sony?!?) speeds but still pretty happy.
Wow. A comment like that from a UID much lower then mine.
A major user of WebKit had submitted code for WebKit. News at 11.
So nothing for say C or it's variants?
You can code on the iPad? This is news. Whats the environment you use? Not talking about scripts or a text editor with basic syntax highlighting tho. I'm talking about being able to code a full project, with all necessary files, and preferably being able to compile it too - but that can be worked around.
I tried this with the Asus Transformer when it came out. Was... KIND OF... doable, but in the end it was a LOT easier to just use a 13" laptop and code on that. No sacrifices were required, completely compatabile with my revision controls, etc.
Also, this is the second time I heard you could write and release iOS apps for free - can you share how this is doable? I admit I don't follow iOS much anymore since I didn't want to spend $100 a year just to write hobby level code, so this change is quite exciting. Unless this post is a day late, then Fool on me...
posting to undo bad moderation... oops
Since when do we determine what a phone is based on physical dimensions? I've seen so many styles of phones - why not just let them be? Can't believe this is on Slashdot, I'd expect to see this on a site like Gizmodo more..
How about this - does it have a phone capability that doesn't require a bluetooth headset? Then I'd say it's a phone. Oh but hey, that is just as arbitrary as your definition.
Failed? By your thinking perhaps - probably not of the GP, nor of Samsungs Sales division. Just because you or me may not want a Note doesn't make it bad (my Nexus 4 is probably as big as I'd want to get) - it just makes us not the target customer.
Been an Android user since leaving my iPhone 3G after a year. Zero infections on my devices (rooted and unlocked, mind you) - Parents are on droid, haven't had to deinfect their phones yet. GF runs Android. No infections. Tablets.... no infections.
Sure, it's possible I'm infected and don't even know it, but then again I also can run tools that tell me what apps are doing (plus I'm warned what they are doing before they install) - can the same be said for iOS? Are you 100% sure Apples caught every security issue? Because I remember a few issues with the App store of theirs making the news..
"Man! That always burns me up to. I mean, once I spec out a system from somewhere else that actually meets the same specification why do the prices always line up? I can't figure that one out either."
Cool. Price me out a Mac Laptop with a non Intel GPU for under $1000. Naw I'll make it easier, under $1500 (prices are Canadian, but I'm not sure US prices would help you much)
I can't find one, so please point me in the right direction, your obviously better at this. Case in point my 13" laptop with nVidia GPU and an i5 processor was $800... Find me that. And if you do find one for $1500, explain what features makes it worth 2x the cost.
From a few posts down:
"Chrome for iOS has some pretty major technical restrictions imposed by the App Store, such as the requirement to use the built-in UIWebView for rendering, no V8, and a single-process model," explained Google engineer Mike Pinkerton
Those are actually some really good points... well said. Suffice to say I'm glad people smarter than I are in charge of this. If I was what they were looking for and in a different place in my life... I'd definitely consider something like this.
I disagree with your example, but not completely with what your trying to say.
80 is far too old. You'd have to put in to your calculations the odds of someone surviving, and at 80 I would say you have a greater risk of health issues, even if your healthier then most 30 year olds in a lot of respects.
I think a mix of ages would be best.. because your looking at such a long period of time, you woun't have anyone under say 35 probably eligable for this, so I'd say 35-60 or so might be good.
"And this will give ammunition to those who would write off a warming planet as little more than a hoax. Alarmism has no place in a discussion of science. We should leave that to 24-hour cable news pundits."
Really? Price me out a Macbook with a non Intel GPU and tell me they are competitive. Unless somethings changed in the past 8 months, I couldn't find anything for less then $1800 CDN that had something better then Intel for the GPU.
I ended up buying a 13.3" i5 laptop for $800 with an OK nVidia GPU on it. Show me something comparable.
