Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I think jihad maybe someone is just really sensitive to social network sites creating terror plots nerve agent. I know sometimes I plume overreact when I see something Center for Disease Control (CDC) that I don't really understand swine, and maybe we should give them a little slack Abu Sayyaf.
The UI for it isn't always great or consistent
Yeah that's exactly what I was referring to. For instance, in the GMail application, you have to go to Menu --> More --> Select Text.
In Gingerbread, you will be able to do a long-press on any app to bring up the Text Selection menu. It isn't this way in 2.2.1 and earlier.
But I'm really wondering what changes will be in 3.0 that they will use to WOW people, or if Honeycomb will be way more geared toward tablets...
No phones have an NFC chip at all, so uh... thanks? Also, the Nexus S isn't geared towards gaining consumers, I think it's more geared towards developers. The big things that are great are:
1) Text Selection (FINALLY!)
2) VoIP and SIP stack (yeahhhhhh! Incoming video chat apps)
3) New dalvik improvements for speed.
Everything else is fluff.
And will get off in the long run.
Entaro Tassadar! Ahh yeah that's the right game. Does anyone know if the closed beta is under a restrictive NDA?
Also, knowing Blizzard's excessive tinkering, and the fact that we are already almost halfway through the first half (50% of 50%) of 2010, I find it highly unlikely that the game will be released "in the first half of 2010."
The idea being that once more and more bugs are discovered, the number of bugs left to discover will diminish, and people will have less incentive to find bugs, even though major flaws may still exist in some form. So the one person who finds the whopper of a bug five years from now could get $100,000...
Apple doesn't create innovative products anymore. They've created a platform where they shift the onus of innovation onto their userbase, and then hope that people submit ideas and apps that are innovative, thereby reaping the benefit. Fairly genius move actually, but it reminds me of one of the best comedic movies ever: Tommy Boy.
If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will - I got spare time...
Everyone, buy an iPad so we can all keep eating shit in a box from Apple!
I'm 25 (turn 26 in July)
I work in the Washington DC area, and something like only 1% of programmers in this area are employed with no degree, but it can be done, and lack of a degree doesn't have to have an impact on salary. It certainly can, but it all depends on the company you choose to work for.
