I realise that summaries, by definition, miss some information but why edit out two of the six partners? Mediatek has a market cap of c.$15bn and Ericsson $40bn. Not exactly small players in this space.
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).
Similarly all the renovation work will be a source of jobs for less skilled manual workers, and we will genuinely witness income flowing from rich to poor. Insurance companies will pay out, reducing their dividends.
So overall, should the US be wishing for more or less bad weather?"
Why not mention EMC and Ericsson in the summary, who are the only other two companies in the consortium? They're not small companies - they have market caps of $57bn and $47bn respectively. RIM are about a third to a quarter of the size at $15bn.
There is no such evidence. Thank you for calling me a cunt.
To mooingyak - thank you. I am fairly thin skinned, so I tend to take criticism badly. Except from geekoid who didn't even read my post properly (his "out of habit" vs. my "convert" statement). I shan't follow him into ad hominem territory.
I posted it this time as a sign of solidarity - a show of strength from those of us who normally remain silent on forums where we're in a minority, against a rather aggressive and vocal majority.
Being a Catholic on
Thank you so much for posting this.
As an English Catholic convert, I am too scared of getting slapped down on
Wow, I've been modded as a troll. Shows standards really are slipping on
As for "facts" recheck - THE POPE HAS NOT BEEN IMPLICATED ONCE.
Do your research instead of trotting out the same old lies over and over again. *sigh*

In the UK the average petrol price is £1.16.6p/litre (according to http://www.petrolprices.com/ ).
Google tells me that 1 US gallon = 3.78541178 litres and 1 British pound = 1.5943 U.S. dollars
So gas (petrol) is $7.04 per US gallon over here.
For 100000km at mfr's figures my Prius would cost approx. $7250 (More like $8-10k)
For a typical car of that ilk, look at $14k+ for fuel. So saving $7k in fuel cost alone by the figures (or $4-6k or perhaps more, in real life).
Unfortunately for Netbeans zealots, it has never caught up with Eclipse. It may have surpassed it temporarily for certain apps (think Grails support - but look at STS 2.2.0). It's also not as good as IntelliJ IDEA (previously, always non-free).
Yes, both Netbeans and Eclipse are also RCP platforms, but how many real Netbeans platform apps are there? (The Nokia one on the web site is vapourware - yes it shows a real customer RAN - without their permission, I should add! - but it's never been a product delivered to customers). Real Eclipse RCP apps do exist (XMind, Lotus Smartsuite...). Realistically, they both over good RCP platforms (one pure Java, one SWT) but Oracle won't really care about that.
As for JDeveloper - well it's a typical Oracle product - if you're in an Oracle house, it's pretty good, but no, it's not got a large userbase or community supporting it.
Oracle should let Netbeans drift off into open source land. Perhaps it'll thrive? I don't know. JDeveloper's functionality should be ported to Eclipse (along with SQL Developer, while we're at it).
Oracle are great at giving you tools once you've signed up for the ride, and why not rebase your products on the best? Which in my opinion is Eclipse.
