Comment Re:On no. 1 & 3: Never trust the client (Score 3, Informative) 265

I try to work my web-apps in the MVC style -- or at least the "VC" style. The browser is the view, the only thing it gets sent is data to display. It is fairly simple to through a debugger up and see exactly how the server API works, but it's also fairly simple to ensure your API is only servicing valid requests and all data is being validdated/escaped/etc.

I'm getting more and more interested in Android -- especially as the newly redesigned XCode 4 is the worst IDE I've ever used -- but I am not going to read a review by someone who finds Obj-C a significant effort to learn from Java. That's a sign that you're a code monkey and not someone who has anything close to a deep understanding of programming; moving in either direction between Java and Obj-C is one of the dead-simplest transitions amongst distinct programming languages.

The concepts are virtually the same -- ok, exactly the same -- but the syntax of Objective-C, namely "message passing", took me some getting used to.

I remember installing Chrome when it first came out and them almost immediately uninstalling it. Either it or Symantec EP had a bug, and the browser window would immediately crash. 9 versions later... these guys have made an absolutely incredible product. I simply don't know what I'd do without my bookmark sync. Their app store needs some work, though, right now it's more of a bookmark store.

There are three kinds of people: men, women, and unix.
