Apple

+ - OSX Lion ships with faulty NVidia Drivers->

Submitted by TeaCurran
TeaCurran (575365) writes "Apple OSX Lion shipped with new NVidia video drivers that are causing anyone with a mid 2010 Macbook Pro to get a kernel panic every 5-10 minutes. Apple knew about the issue before shipping lion, hasn't responded to the issue, and is censoring posts in their support forum that mention words like 'boycot' and 'petition'. NVidia has responded that the drivers are the responsibility of Apple so they won't deal with the issue. How a major hardware manufacturer can ship such a faulty product without getting much press about it is completely beyond me."

+ - 10 things Flash can do today that HTML5 can’-> 1

Submitted by TeaCurran
TeaCurran (575365) writes "In face of all the hype, fear, confusion related to HTML5 vs Flash I wanted to come up with a reasoned list of why I think flash is still the right choice for building many types of web applications. This is a list of things I could think of and find that highlight some areas where Flash has innovated ahead of where the HTML5 specs and implementations are at currently."

Oracle

+ - Monty is creating FUD that hurts the OSS community->

Submitted by TeaCurran
TeaCurran (575365) writes "I keep seeing a ton of press from blog posts that Monty Widenius is writing about how the Oracle-Sun merger is bad for the MySQL community. In this article, I talk about the other side of the story and argue that Widenius is using FUD to leverage the community for his own gain, while at the same time doing damage to MySQL and other OSS projects Sun maintains."
