It is possible to compile java to native code, its just another layer ontop of C++ that has to preprocess java into C++, like C++ goes to C, then to asm.

Anything thats slow in java, would have been converted to a native API call that runs at 100% native speeds. If your code is slow in java, its because your a shit coder.

Dude, this is what apple has done with quicktime/itunes, which is why it is BIGGER than MacOS classic itself.

Quicktime wrapped a carbon api to windows, and then they just hack ported itunes to windows, which is WHY its so shit and not multi threaded or multitasks poorly.

MS approach is more along WINE, the version that can recompile win32 apps using libraries inside linux.

All thats missing is swift, Obj C is dead.

Screw you google.

Time to write a youtube proxy ,that will allow old devices to talk to new youtube.

And we will strip you of ads too, and show a still frame of the ad, with no audio, while the proxy will still stream the ad from the source, the end device will not see it.

And guys remember, backup copy all IP/source code from companies weekly after a new ceo.

Setup your desktop in such a way, you can walk out and make it not boot the next day, Change bios settings to something that will fry the cpu/ram, save & power off.

Add backup admin accounts to all machines you can.
Change all SSL certificates to expire on 4th July.

Even the cheap color lcd phones of 2002-2007 I needed smart features in.

I would hack a home made google maps, using JPEG map images.

I would copy dozens of .txt docs that were useful, like windows serial #s.

And dude, google translate is so cool when outside USA.

They should have bought the rights to Amiga, and made a new Amiga MkII, with improved specs, CD32 size, and ported part of the mac api to it ( amiga was better :P~ apple ).

And if it ran old amiga games, it would have been a hit, or get more sales than macs, if people would rig up a large monitor and Kb/mouse to it instead of macos.

What about various chrome extensions that have superfish embeded inside them?

A while ago, flash video downloader was one, not sure if it still there...

Google, do a better job, terminate all accounts to anyone using superfish.

CNET are fuckwits too, stop serving malware, they should be raided by the FBI now.
