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 it can remain in a relatively stationary position in sustained 40mph winds, it is by definition going 40mph. To stay stationary it would have to match the speed of the wind, and if it can do that then in calm winds it would still be able to go that same speed (and groundspeed at that). It is the same reason a fixed wing aircraft can hover or perform STOL maneuvers.
If it were moving with a tailwind, it could travel significantly faster over the ground than their specifications even mentioned.
Off by default in WIndows 8, otherwise configurable in the Recycle Bin properties.
On is a reasonable default for the masses, and configurable for those who actually know what they want to do. Don't forget some people use the Recycle Bin for storing things they want to keep.
Most likely due to Samsung Knox.
I don't think this was a flaw in that safe files list. It mentions it could be executed automatically, not that it was executed without warning.
Safari has the "Open 'safe' files automatically' option which is turned on by default. I think this is more likely the issue.
The issue was not Java applets embedded in webpages, they were still disabled. It has to do with a (stupid) feature in Safari, "Open 'Safe' files after downloading." Apparently the Java web start files were on the safe list and would auto-execute.
Or Google's Native Client.
If you disagree with everything they've done so far and where they're going, it seems the perfect time to do so, when it's not commonly used. Maybe they'll blow everything else out of the water, I'm not holding my breath but wish them the best.
It's still a GPL project.
Blocking all third party cookies breaks things that a lot of people like and use, like Facebook/Twitter login, disquis, etc. This is a better solution than the current wide-open default, while still allowing you to block everything if you choose.
It certainly does explain it.
The system they slapped together included Google Checkout, which is used for shipping physical goods to physical addresses. Everything goes to the developer because the developer is selling you the product, not Google. Unfortunatley it appears they kept the location features, even though it was unneeded for the new role.
Play Store is essentially a different interface to Google Shopping.
Why wouldn't they do this on ReactOS directly?
Looking at Windows source for inspiration seems a little dangerous.
Surface Pro is full Windows 8, no reason you shouldn't be able to. Windows RT has artificial lockdowns to try and force you to use Windows store or SCCM sideloading.
And then Windows came along and integrated Lotus 1.2.3. with Miami Vice.
Apple doesn't hide the BSD improvements either. Go visit their Open Source page. You can build Darwin if you put in the work.
Have you ever visited Apple's Open Source page? You'll find they do share code, even purely BSD code.
Though I'm not really sure what your point is, nor how you got +5. Apple is not even mentioned in this story, what "stupid bullshit" are you talking about?
