A Final Solution to the computer virus problem!
I've understood for years that I couldn't rely on anything in my butt that was new, experimental, or not terribly well known.
Man, cloud to butt keeps delivering in hilarity...
Thanks for the correction. Conclusion still applies though. App Store doesn't allow shared libraries and has mandatory license terms incompatible with the LGPL.
(For those saying, "we'll never see this on iOS, well, Apple has "let in" Skype & Viber, so why not?)
Jitsi is GPL, and Apple's mandatory license terms are incompatible with GPL software.
Are you getting lots of ERR_NETWORK_CHANGED errors? There's a Chromium ticket about that...
Android 4.1 has full emoji support.
I switched to Ruby from Perl back when Perl 6 was in the early stages of development. I haven't regretted it at all. There are more Ruby Gems than CPAN packages now, the regexps are just as good, and the language syntax is so much cleaner.
Back on Ruby 1.8, Perl was about twice as fast, but these days Ruby has improved a lot, and there are also options like JRuby and Rubinius.
Can't you stipulate your app only works on ICS and certain phones?
Sure, he can. Last time I did some work on my app, I made a bunch of changes that require OS 4 and above. People with older phones still get the old version.
Even though Walmart has almost 3 times the revenue (447 billion vs 156) I know which company I'd rather be working for, or in charge of, or have stock in.
I suspect you haven't looked at AAPL's stock price recently.
I used to swear by the Pilot V5, but these days I prefer a Uniball Gel RT. They're smoother. Slightly better than the G2 as well.
Meanwhile, they're forcing Google+ instant-uploads on people to encourage them to use it.
No they aren't. You can turn that off.
Right now my options are:
1. Give complete control to Apple, who are already abusive assholes.
2. Give complete control to Microsoft, who are already abusive assholes.
3. Give complete control to the phone company, who are already abusive assholes.
4. Give very little control to Google, but maybe one day they'll start to be abusive.
5. Do without a phone.
From where I'm sitting, #4 looks like the least bad.
...but I want to be able to have the ability to use microSD cards to keep my media on and be able to easily change it in and out...
If you put your music on Google Music, you can tap-hold on an album or artist and select "Keep on device", and it'll cache it on the device for offline listening. When you're tired of it, uncheck the same option and it'll be garbage-collected.
Honestly, dicking around with sync programs and SD cards would be much harder work.
They need something like that for movies. I suspect it'll come eventually.
They're not going bankrupt, and they cover the whole country in the same way AT&T does — patchily outside urban areas.
Do PC games typically work well with a controller? I was under the impression that they generally needed a mouse and keyboard.
And buying a PS3 and Wii which last 5-6 years is still cheaper than a PC with upgrades every couple of years.
