Comment Re:How well does Google Business work for calendar (Score 1) 251 251

Don't know what Exchange offers, but it's easy to share calendars (dunno if you can make a calendar private and only allow a group of people to view it, without manually adding the people one by one, but yeah), for people to view others' calendars, and to find 'free time for all'.

On the first point, since Android is open source and I can't download all of that source either I see no reason why the partial codebase of iOS does not qualify.

You can download all of Android's sources.

Where can I download Moto-Blur?

Moto-blur is not Android, it's a replacement UI developed by Motorola. Which, btw, is not as easy to do in iOS (and probably a breach of contract).

the second is at least a questionable claim, given that language preferences vary so much.

That has nothing to do with it. The fact is Objective-C make code injection incredibly easy, which means it's much easier to hook into and modify specific parts of existing applications.

It's not about language preference, it's about a specific side effect of iOS software being written in Objective-C.

But then again, that's not exactly allowed, is it?

I'll be reading a book and then realise I've been on auto-pilot for the last 3 pages and actually have no recollection of what I just read.

That happens to me too, but what makes it especially annoying is that when I re-read, I recognize it and slowly start remembering what I read.

My point was, integrity (values/moral, figurative definition) of policemen works just as well as the literal one. If anything, integrity as being whole, seems to me would apply better to the police corps, not to an individual: intégrité, nom féminin Sens 1 Etat d'une chose qui n'a pas été altérée Chose means thing, and while you can apply this to a person, it just sounds weird. But, we're just splitting hairs here. :-P

Lazy journalism. The coldfusion stuff was made by Luis Majano, whereas the logbox the nutcase in question is talking about was made by this guy: http://www.fabioghioni.net/blog/2011/10/20/internet-e-l%E2%80%99arbitrio-assoluto-sui-dati-dei-service-provider-presentata-al-parlamento-l%E2%80%99iniziativa-per-un-sistema-di-controllo-sotto-garante/

If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it.
