Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
New mobile site really doesn't work on desktop browsers, but it does load articles and i can see what it's all about.
Now my question is, what makes it so hard to make it? I think i could create something like this with jQuery Mobile or Sencha in few days (or less). Why did you choose to start from scratch and now spend days and days to fix bug's like touch events and differences beetween browsers? You could spend most of your time to simply polish and make it look like yours if you chose to use UI libraries that are already available.
Heck, a soekris or an alix board will do.
I know this is not related, but failure rate for soekris boards are close to 100% in three years. I'm not sure if problem is with power unit that they use, but very soon everything starts to fail and magic smoke comes out of soekris.
Now I might be wrong here but memory serves that in Sweden the retailers are forced to accept a return of old equipment of the same kind when you purchase a new one. My google-fu right now has failed me so I can't find a reference.
I might be that what was optional now will be mandatory and different countries could already have this in effect.
More googling suggests that this is how it is.
Mandatory in Finland also, can't recall how many years already. But it's not just that, you can also take your old electronics to local dump and recycle them for free. This also works for all other household item's that can be recycled, like old car batteries. No reason to throw them into river or park at night.
