After years of "this [game/service/promotion] is not available for your country" trying to listen to Pandora, to watch Hulu and to download some Xbox Live games, now it's my turn to be delighted seeing this crushing bitterness bite your souls, dear Americans! Who needs Full HD videos and customised Internet Radio when I can call my grandma for FREE? I love you Bing!
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).
Have you really read to the end of the article?
Copied verbatim from Final Thoughts:
"When I started this experiment, I was expecting that it would be an interesting foray and that I’d most likely end up switching back to KDE when it was all over. I’m no longer certain that I will be doing that."
What I felt from the article is that Gnome Classic, although still rough, is definitely going in the right direction. The author even commited to keep using it, at least until next week's Red hat Summit!
I must be honest.
Gnome used to be my preferred DE.
And reading this has raised my hopes for it again!
100 million Windows 8 licenses sold.
I just bought a notebook for my mother's birthday.
Since she is used to Ubuntu on the desktop computer, is was the natural OS of choice.
Windows 8 never saw the light of the day... yet since it came preloaded, it still counts as a sale for Microsoft.
I have a Macbook. It runs Linux exclusively. People might have diverging opinions about the price, but very few question that it's a very well engineered machine. Have you tried looking at their screens to see what OS they were running?
By the way, 10 years ago iBooks were still using PowerPC processors, and Macbooks didn't exist until 2006.
No, it is not just him. This corruption problem with Safari is a well known problem. It appears that this problem manifests strongly in the macbook retina. There are ongoing discussions about this in many forums, including apple's own:
As reported by many testers, these problems have NOT been fixed in the soon-to-be-released 10.8.3 update, and they are still present in the Webkit nightly. If you are not experiencing such problems, the most probable reason is that you're using a non-retina display.
Parent's post current conversion:
- iPhone 4S 16GB at apple store: R$2000 = U$1,018
- iPhone 5 pre-orders at carriers: R$2600 = U$1,322 with contract / U$1,577 without contract.
I know that you're not a girl...
Current Ubuntu user here as well.
I'm all for this too... but in a ***separate*** shopping lens.
Even Stallman said so:
"[To protect users' privacy] is easy: all it takes is to have separate buttons for network searches and local searches, as earlier versions of Ubuntu did."
Goddamn, having shopping result when I am searching for local files is not only a privacy issue... it is damnright annoying.
No, it won't be open source.
From the wikipedia page:
Jolla said that mobile phone manufacturers (e.g. Nokia, Samsung etc.) will be able to license and use Sailfish on a phone, just like Android. Similar to Windows Phone, it is also not open source.
Although not directly related to coffee, there is a very interesting TED talk from Jojanna Blakley that touches this exact point. She compares the fashion industry, in which there are pratically no copyright law or intellectual property, to the entertainment industry where this is heavily overblown.

I got really curious now! I work mostly with C and GCC, and I would really like to know your technique to log the function calls, arguments and return value! I really can't think of a way of doing this without using a lot of macros, that would make the code unreadable... Would you mind giving me an insight? Thanks!

Not so fast! There is a problem with the analisys. Check the first graph: The 123456789 password appears twice (in the 4th position and in the last shown position). This is a blasphemy to my true nerd beliefs.
