The point being that Apple didn't adopt Objective-C just to be weird. Next used Objective-C to build NextStep and there's certain things in Objective-C that made NextStep moderately cool.
I actually worked at Apple, on the operating systems team, around that time. Apple was in no position to be arrogant in 1997 and wasn't actively looking for ways to be incompatible. Today, that's a very different story.
Those would be called "antivirals"
Well since you asked so nicely.
The government of the autonomous region of Valencia (Spain) earlier this month made available the next version of Lliurex, a customisation of the Edubuntu Linux distribution. The distro is used on over 110,000 PCs in schools in the Valencia region, saving some 36 million euro over the past nine years, the government says.
Making Up Names Of Bills With Cleverly Crafted Backronyms Is So Fucking Annoying.
Cuban cigar smokers in the US don't have a PAC to push through changes. They're just not a big enough special interest group.
Rich people can get Cuban cigars without any problem whatsoever, embargo or not. Hell, JFK smoked Havanas during the Cuban missile crisis.
Normal rules and laws don't apply to the one percentile...
How to distinguish whether the phone user is driving a car or riding a bus?
At least you can exclude all iPhone owners from that particular test: people who can afford Apple products are so not riding busses... Or if they do, they probably know better than to whip out a multi-hundred-dollar device begging to be stolen onboard the bus.
I suppose the same way PawSense detects whether a cat or a human is using the device: when you text and drive, you have a funny way of using the device - because you're constantly switching between texting, putting down the device and driving, picking it back up after 10 seconds, and doing that over and over, as opposed to a human that's fully committed to the task of inputting text.
Ah nevermind, I got it. It's not terribly obvious though...
Look, I'm not picky or anything, and I know headlines are shortened, but what the hell does " Apple Said To Team With Visa, MasterCard On iPhone Wallet" mean?
Software monetization is basically just like anal sex. You keep on pushing until the person you're doing it to can't take it anymore. And then you keep pushing.
You seem to know a lot about monetizing anal sex...
That's how I feel too: they've turned Firefox into a cheap whore - albeit with an opt-out option.
Yet I realize they have to make money to keep bringing out new Firefox releases.
Yet... it sucks. Ads sucks. Ad-funded internet sucks.
Agreed. My collection includes a Guantlett 2, Tempest, Ms PacMan, Xevious, Robotron 2048, and Smash TV (not in original cabinet). The rest of the modern stiff pretty much pales in comparison.
Anybody that would consider her being a hate-monger is out of touch with reality.
