Except MSIE is dead. And "Project Spartan" still doesn't have an official name.
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).
I ride a scooter 4 times a day to go to work. About 8 minutes from home to the train station, 10 minutes from the arrival station to work. And back at the end of the day. Easy to fold and to transport in stairs of the station, and the rides are too short to require a bike.
In fact, C# is a conspiracy *against* CPU vendors: the plan was to say bye bye Intel x86 because Windows 32 bits was aging, and be more open to transition to other CPU such x86_64 while keeping the developer base. Just for this reason they succeed.
If you are worried about SSL, you can also download the content over SSH because the content is hosted on Github. This requires a Github account (unfortunately this has to be done over SSL) where you have setup SSH access (the later can be done with my tool github-keygen, despites it does not yet implement all Stribika advices).
git clone email@example.com:stribika/stribika.github.io.git
Anyway whatever the state of the transport encrpytion, that will never tell you if the content is legitimate.
At least reading your local copy you will make with Git will at least ensure you that will not be affected if the server copy is later altered.
It's too slow for Android, but you could try Firefox OS on it.
Firefox OS is based on an Android kernel.
I just saw "Bennett Haselton writes", mentally inserted "tldr:" in front of it and came for the LULZ in the comments without even registering what he was drivelling on about.
Same here. But even before seing the "Keep reading to see what Bennett..." sentence I already though "Hey, looks like Bennett dumb stuff again, isn't it?" just by looking at the title.
Slashdot was once about "stuff that matters"...
Why use on removable media a filesystem that is not universal?
Use UDF instead!
Firefox doesn't require a Google account. It doesn't require you to save your browser settings, history, favorites in the cloud.
If you care about ads, you care about Google, don't you?
I'm still using pens and Post-It to take notes, not my phone.
Thanks. At least someone here has sensible critic.
To be fair, Windows 7 was really good, at least compared to the previous, Windows 6 aka "Vista".
The difference is that they will have changed their business model, to one where you have so sign on the their own cloud computing in order to use it [...]
This is already the case with Windows 8.1. You have to use a Microsoft cloud account (Hotmail.com, Live.com...) to create an account on your local Windows 8.1 PC. The creation of a pure local account is only a very hidden option that is only proposed when you are couraged enough to fight and about to give up account creation.
So I'll have to rewire my house every couple of years
Most home automation standards are now wireless: ZigBee, Zwave, EnOcean...
