Don't poison people's minds with indent == scope!
Why do you consider it poisoning if Python forces you to indent the correct way? Do you indent in a non-standard manner while coding in C? Are people complaining about white space in Python indenting improperly in other languages?
Every good programmer's genius goes towards uplifting his/her manager, his middle manager, his department, his company etc., but rarely the programmer himself. Since the company claims all credit, ownership and benefits of any code developed, no one knows who is responsible for what. So this list is a joke.
Do we know who exactly came up with the concept for Donkey Kong? Many companies hide such info because they don't want the talented programmer to get poached by another company. But still, they should release such information 10-15 years after a product is released.
but my only question is how on earth did Java beat out C
That's like asking why isn't Assembly language on the top of the list? It runs circles around C in the performance area, both in speed and size (important for embedded apps).
Java beats C because you can accomplish more in Java than C with fewer lines of code and less mental effort. Things like exceptions, OO, garbage collection, a massive library, etc. save a lot of time compared to C. Debugging is also relatively painless because you get a stack trace in Java, but not in C.
I too have a few questions:
How on earth did VHDL beat Verilog? I thought everyone in companies used verilog because VHDL was too complex, like Ada.
Why is Julia not on the list? Its syntax is similar to Python but performance approaches C/Java.
The law which bans online businesses from storing personal data of Russian citizens on servers located abroad
... and apply to email services ...
Under the new law, if a Russian were to send an email to a German, using a webmail service like Yahoo mail, won't the email text have to be stored outside Russia to make it easily accessible to the German? Is such a law really practical?
Not sure why dedicated lane posts are being marked troll, but that's the safest option considering the difference in speed and the relative fragility of bikes. As shown in this article, extra space (as opposed to the current 6 inches space) between bike and car lanes is crucial for safety.
An even better solution is a protected and dedicated bike lane where there are concrete barriers preventing cars from entering bike lanes. Of course, all this requires a lot of city planning.
No.... it's OTA. The content is being distributed freely over the air.
So, it's like gpl -- once in the air, it's becomes free to anyone who can read it? Well then, anyone should able to record it and sell DVDs of tv shows too, right?
Some viewers have difficulty receiving the OTA content over the air at the quality they want using their own equipment, or the investment is too much, or they lack the expertise to build large antenna structures and setup gateways to stream their content to themselves over the internet, so they are inclined to subscribe to a service to maintain equipment to receive over the air on their behalf and provide them the technical assistance to receive the freely available content in the manner the end user wants.
So why can't your service provider pay for the content it is rebroadcasting for a profit? Aereo thinks it should be able to profit from somebody else's content, but the content providers should not profit from their own content? The OTA broadcast is only for individual consumption -- rebroadcasting or commercial use requires a new license and fees.
The charges that OTA channels get to charge cable companies a purely a protection racket. THAT is what should have been made illegal, not Aereo!
How, so? The content is a product and the cable companies profit from that product, and should therefore pay the OTA broadcasters for its use.
The spectrum that the broadcasters use to transmit over the air programming belongs to the American public and we believe you should have a right to access that live programming whether your antenna sits on the roof of your home,
The spectrum may be public, but the public does not own the data in the spectrum, (just as roads may be public, but the public don't own the cars on the roads).
A little over three years ago, our team embarked on a journey to improve the consumer television experience, using technology to create a smart, cloud-based television antenna consumers could use to access live over the air broadcast television.
Why didn't you obtain retransmission rights for the copyrighted content? Was it to save your company a lot of money?
So your position is that using Slingbox or a DVR over the Internet (a shared non dedicated connection per user) makes you a CATV company and a copyright infringer as well?
Retransmitting copyrighted content, like a tv show, without permission, over the internet, is copyright infringement. However, viewing a show from your slingbox is allowed as fair use.
However, if your slingbox retransmits tv shows to your multiple friends, that's copyright infringement. Aereo is kinda like an antenna connected to a slingbox which in turn transmits content to many viewers. That's redistribution of copyrighted content, which is illegal without permission.
