I'm from Grand Rapids and studied CS here. Still haven't heard of them. Or if I did I've forgotten.
A Gamecube controller is still the best way to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii, IMO. But they can't be used on the newer Wii consoles and the Wii U.
(Of course I still have a Wii with Gamecube support.)
Overflows of unsigned values are well-defined in C (they wrap). (Technically the standard says unsigned values can't overflow because they're wrapped)
Overflows of signed values are undefined.
I believe you can actually update the QT libraries on Android separately using Ministro. I don't know if any other libraries do something like this.
Didn't the NSA develop SELinux specifically to compartamentalize data and prevent things like a sysadmin having more access to classified information than they need?
Unortunately multiboot does not (yet) work with this.

Apparently Google hasn't learned from HTC either.
Supposedly the new Nexus phone will have a non-removable battery, 8GB storage, and no microSD slot. (Supposedly a 16GB version will be released later).
At least it has an unlocked bootloader and fast updates, although Google does have an unfair advantage there. But don't expect them to pull the rug out from anyone.
Non DPI aware applications being marked DPI aware is Microsoft's fault. They decided to mark MFC applications (and potentially others) DPI-aware by default (at least when compiled with Visual Studio 2010).
It doesn't help that the GUI designer (at least for Windows Forms) in Visual Studio doesn't work right at non-default DPIs. It also doesn't help that their automatic scaling for Windows Forms doesn't work right (probably why they haven't enabled it by default).
I was assuming a huge part of Metro was fixing the DPI scaling issues. I guess not.

The Nexus S 4G is part of the lawsuit.
The receipt data is first supposed to be sent to the developer's server. The server then verifies it with the app store. It's up to the developer to make sure communication with their own server is secure.
Still not a very good system IMO. What does Apple use for securing actual app purchases from their store? I'm assuming they have something in place to prevent using a MITM attack to install your own apps?
The Metro stuff doesn't run on EEE netbooks (at least the older ones) due to not meeting the minimum resolution. Trying to run it on my 10" netbook still brought up the Metro start screen, but trying to open any of the apps did nothing.
You can certainly point a domain name at a dynamic IP. Just use a DNS provider (like ZoneEdit) that provides a way to update A records using a dynamic DNS client and set your TTL low.
You still run into issues for the duration of the TTL after your IP changes, but how often does that actually happen now? It's not uncommon for me to be connected for 1 month or more at a time.
Being against the policies of Israel's government doesn't make people anti-Semitic.
Or are you referring to something more?
They already screw up Android enough as well.
Semi-related comment from the kernel source of my phone:
out how to properly use the SPI driver in the system. Please resist the temptation of ever using
this code in a good Samsung phone. I will remove this code as soon as I figure out the correct
way of using the SPI driver*/
(That code actually works correctly though, unlike some of the other stuff)
