At it looks like M$ is taking steps in the right direction, which is more than we could have said during the Ballmer years.
This is something that has worried me more and more as we dig deeper into the net neutrality discussion. How are we going to force Comcast's hand when the two people at the negotiating table are going out for a round of golf afterwards? It's a major conflict of interest and one I am surprised that more media outlets have not picked up on.
Privately, they do everything they can to raise rates, stifle innovation, and milk 20 year old cable technology for everything its worth.
Better safe than sorry.
Agreed. Nothing else comes close imo.
As a long time Firefox user who switched to Chromium, I am happy to see that Mozilla is taking these steps to ensure long term survival. Multi-process architecture is long overdue. I still maintain that Firefox has one of the most friendly developer communities out there.
Republicans, because scared, angry white men just doesn't have the same ring to it.
I have seen some very old apps working in healthcare I.T., especially in the microbiology lab. A virtual machine for legacy apps would be a major boon for those of us in the trenches supporting software from the Clinton administration.
Very interesting stuff. The far reaching implications of using this method to fight viral infections is fascinating.
If only Pizza the Hutt took over after Jobs...if only.
If only there was a clippy app for Linux to make it easier to find, or maybe that search dog.
As far as i'm concerned, any project I back on Kickstarter is an investment. While I would love to see a return on investment (and believe me, some of the projects I have back have gone on to do great things), its not always possible. There are far too many people out there backing projects that expect a 100% ROI every time. This is simply not possible.
I agree...Even the die hard Apple fanboys I work with were pretty unimpressed with the announcement. It really feels like Android is where everything interesting is happening nowadays from a development standpoint. Who knows, maybe even Microsoft can gain a foothold.
Either that, or they don't bother to do any research into the practical, legitimate application of this widely used technology.
Looks like a good read! I am curious if there is any information pertaining to the acceptable use of the cloud in unique IT environments such as healthcare.
