You root for Microsoft, of course. If you don't like Microsoft, you can choose not to use their software. But everyone is affected by the ridiculous state of the patent system right now. I'm not optimistic that the Supreme Court can/will restore any sanity, but it's a much bigger problem than any one company.
My keyboard has three keys.
CTRL ALT DEL?
What about doors and stairs?
Texting is fine on the bike.
It's just a bit tricky when it's also snowing at the same time.
How many times louder is 10 dB than 0 dB?
I have replaced Safari with Chrome as my default browser on Mac.
I'm not sure I know anyone who uses IE who even knows that Chrome exists.
That's not the point. (also, there are Chrome billboards everywhere here in the city) This is the point:
Bank of America has apparently recently added Google Chrome to their list of officially supported browsers.
I called this! On Slashdot!
Also, you can phone up your bank, if their site's not working for you and scream:
"WHAT DO YOU MEAN, YOU DON'T SUPPORT GOOGLE?"
and they'll get with the Google.
Well, Rogério Brito,
I am not a developer, but I do care. I do know about the "incestuous" relationships of the media playing libraries in the OSS world. I do know that having one alternative less is a bad thing, especially in the long run. I'm also very grateful for LAME and don't "wish the death of" any one of the projects you mentioned.
I do provide feedback to OSS developers, hopefully in the form of constructive suggestions. Maybe not media related ones, as that isn't my forté, but others. I've petitioned daringfireball to bring some attention to the matter. He reaches a lot of Mac devs. I think I'll try that Delicious Monster guy next.
My post above was not about dancing on the grave of the traffic cone, but to provide a service to the community: to share with other people an alternative way of playing media well that they may not know about, as I have only recently (re-)discovered Mplayer OSX Extended.
I guess that what I meant to say to you is: "Don't shit all over people you don't know and have only read one sentence of."
Signed, "user like the one above"
Sad to see VLC struggling, but there's always Mplayer OSX Extended for the mac. Get the extra codec pack and it can play anything!
Seconding this. My US power strip not only fried itself, but cut the power for half the hotel I was staying at. This happened late Friday night, and it was almost 2 days before they fixed it.
It was a crappy hotel, but the point stands.
No shit, Sherlock
What, the American or the European version?
Laden or unladen?
