You think being responsible for the literal lives of your passengers for 8 hours a day, needing to be alert the entire time is *less* responsibility and stress? You're out of your fucking mind.
Those applications are all *drumroll* web pages. They are not video conferencing or any of the other crap Mozilla has been putting in there lately. Anyone who thinks those belong in a browser is a fucking idiot.
Define "default android browser". Each OEM ships their own- Google has one, but so does Samsung. If you have a Samsung phone you've never used the default Android browser.
In *browser*? Abso-fucking-lutely. If Mozilla Foundation wanted to write the Mozilla Videoconfrencing app, that would be fine. But there is 0 reason to put it in the browser, and it only decreases security of everyone involved by having it in there. A browser should display webpages- period.
I read several novels a month. But I wouldn't read a technical book on an ereader if you gave it to me for free and paid me to do it. And I've tried- I originally bought it thinking it would be great for tech books. But the slow speed of page switching, the inability to flip through pages rapidly, the reduced area per page all make it an unbearable experience. Ereaders are good for fiction reading, they're completely unsuitable for anything that isn't read beginning to end with no branching or backtracking.
Tablets are a horrible replacement for books. Lets ignore the fact they have massive amounts of distractions built in. They're harder to read, worse for your eyes, run out of batteries, are harder to take notes on, and worst of all hard or impossible to skim. I own over a thousand books on my kindle, but almost 0 technical books. Its just not a good medium for it.
That's a great way to ensure your code will never perform well. Architectural and algorithmic based performance issue need to be solved at the same time as correctness and understandability, or you'll never achieve it. There's levels of micro-optimizations that can wait, but people stating this kind of shit as a rule are fucking inconmpetent.
The question is- is that because sparc is better, because Oracle optimized for Sparc like mad, or because they purposely degraded the performance on x86?
But the problem isn't the 3rd world developers, its the unrealistic buyers. They aren't companies that understand tech, they're mostly individuals who don't understand that programming is work and want the sun, moon, and stars for a hundred bucks. Worse they don't know what they want or need, they just know they want/need something. You have to be designer, project manager, and developer in one, for a 3rd world salary. I don't think very many of the projects there are successful, and those that are tend to be the very simplest ones. If you have access to any job in the US, its just not worth doing. You'll make more per hour job hopping or putting the extra time into your real job in hopes of a raise/bonus.
No, but if you own bitcoins you sure as hell are. But tell you what, I'll give you a discount rate on buying all the Flooz you want.
Does anyone still think that sending money over an unregulated channel for a dubious commodity is a good idea? There's a good reason banks are one of the most regulated industries on the planet.
Have a way that wouldn't destroy the rest of society in the process? Because honestly, I'd prefer the surveillance than the utter destruction of our economy, loss of all protections against those with money, and the untold human misery their policies would create.
Depends on your accent. I get about 98% recognition. I still don't use it because its easier to type/swype.
No, they just didn't allow any checkins at all as they were "original research".
