Newsblur has a mobile app for Android and iPhone. I'd rather just a good mobile site, but it's better than nothing.
Interesting. I'll admit that I just searched long enough to find the blogspot post that I originally saw.
That statement doesn't make it clear to me that they are supporting CalDAV for the future, though--just that they've worked with the developers responsible for 98% of their CalDAV traffic. This is consistent with their previous statement--that CalDAV developers can get whitelisted. It sounds like iCal probably won't be affected (surely Apple is in that 98%) but it looks like new applications will be unable to use that protocol.
Google's dropping support for CalDAV which I think was the primary supported way of syncing with iCal.
The trick is that "innocents" can get caught in the blast. One of the reasons that we strive for herd immunity is because the vaccines aren't 100% effective.
Well if I understand it correctly, this will actually lead to less revenue for the U.S. Government. They are not instituting a federal Internet sales tax--they are forcing merchants to collect sales tax that is due to the individual state in which the purchaser resides. Aside from the problems this will cause for smaller businesses on the Internet, this will increase the Federal deduction that individuals can claim due to payment of state taxes. Higher federal deductions == less money for the feds (though almost certainly more for the individual states.)
I always wonder how people run across crazy sequences of button presses that trigger bugs while on live hardware. This reminds me of the various iPhone lock-screen bypasses.
With video poker, the house edge is built in to the device. The edge is that the payout schedule beats the odds of getting the hand.
In this case, the machine was defective, which generally voids all plays (this is usually written on the machines.)
The defect was that a player could trick the machine into thinking more money had been wagered than actually had been. This means that the payout schedule could be higher than the odds of getting the hand.
The guy shouldn't be charged with a crime, but the casino almost certainly has the right to demand the money back (unless they failed to post the warning about voiding plays.)
Do you blame the hacker who constructs the packet which causes the machine to operate in a way that it wasn't designed (deleting the database, giving higher level access than desired, etc?)
I don't know why it would, given that Apple devices in general are terrible at time.
But what I want from an iWatch is the ability to access Siri, control music, and receive haptic alerts (since I often don't feel my phone vibrate in my pocket.) Two of those three are available on the Metawatch or Pebble, though the music control is really not great AFAICT.
There are still hardware improvements to be made. The cameras, for example. The battery, too, though that will take an industry-wide tech improvement.
I'll say this, though--at least they ask before taking you to the mobile front page.
I only go to Slashdot from RSS, so while I actually like the new mobile discussions more, they're useless to me until the deep linking/routing is complete. Until then, I'll continue to press the button which dismisses the popup.
Chrome on iOS 6.1. I've been asked over and over. Also, the cardinal sin of "redirecting from a deep link to the front page of the mobile site" was committed, apparently
I'm on a discussion page and I get redirected to the front page of m.slashdot.org. Horrible, horrible!
You can edit? For the longest time, you couldn't.
Except that as many pointed out, he won the last game with no feed.
The system is fairly customizable. The only thing you can't change is the type of moderation that people use--but you can certainly adjust the values of that moderation. For example, I penalize 'funny' posts, because usually they aren't.
