Which phones with 128MB or 256MB of RAM run a modern version of Android?
Unfortunately WebP isn't all that good for a next-gen format.
Firefox OS is trying to fix much of this.
The Web is the most successful platform of all time and we're leading the pack on bringing a the Web platform to mobile in a way that's integrated rather than fractured like the existing app store models.
They were all planning to die, and they had no reason to care about the impact on other Saudis, so it makes perfect sense they would take the simple safe option and carry their own ID.
Note, if the NK regime was demonstrably reasonable --- let's say, anywhere between China's government and South Korea's --- it would make a lot of sense to drawn down the US presence. So there is no impasse here.
The US is not occupying South Korea. South Korea has its own democratically elected government running the country.
A subset of South Koreans don't like the presence of US bases. But with the constant, explicitly stated threats from North Korea, as a nation they'd be suicidal to push US forces out.
Too many people have already died. China's support for North Korea is about their worst sin at the moment.
Atheists certainly can behave morally, ethically, and decently, and most do. The problem is, in most cases they do so in defiance of their professed epistemology.
Thanks for being honest about the implications of your position in that last sentence.
The fact that religion, politics, and anything else people care about can be abused to build a power base does not mean those things are in themselves bad. Nor does it mean we should abolish them and become apathetic drudges. Even if the latter was desirable and worked, it's a Prisoner's Dilemma where the first defector conquers the world. So much for freedom.
Please, no, not more squandering of funds on meaningless manned missions driven not by science or long-term goals but by absurd "human spirit" PR to get more funding for more meaningless missions.
We need a self-sustaining human presence off this planet, but all paths to get there require robotic mining and construction outside the Earth's gravity well, and that is what we need to be investing in.
Assuming the extension works on Chrome on iOS. Which it may not, since that uses a fairly different architecture and rendering engine from Chrome on other platforms...
For what it's worth, "millions of dollars" is a pretty low bar. A million dollars in the US will get you _maybe_ 5 person-years worth of work from anyone at all competent (using the normal rule of thumb that an employees cost to the employer is about 2x salary once you take into account benefits, employer taxes, equipment, office space, etc).
So 10 million dollars will get you a 10 years worth of work from 5 developers. As an example, the PyPy project is 10 years old....
For JS, between the various browser vendors, the right number is probably closer to 300-500 person-years (see https://news.ycombinator.com/i... for an attempted breakdown). Figure $100 million as a low estimate. Chances are, the people involved are being paid more than $100k a year, so adjust the estimate up accordingly...
I thought standards were there to implement not argue with
This sentiment is very wrong. It's easy to generate a standard that is no good, and the W3C is often not good at keeping out bogus standards. If we followed this sentiment browsers would burn resources implementing all kinds of useless things like XHTML2, XSL-FO, etc etc etc. "Browsers implement it" is an important and completely reasonable test of validity for any spec, alongside "Web developers use it".
- All addons hosted by Mozilla get reviewed.
- Open source is not required, but source disclosure to Mozilla is.
- Any update to the addon triggers a new review cycle.
The other option is to review updates to extensions before pushing them out to users. That's what Mozilla does with Firefox extensions.
