We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Netflix HD is 720p or 1080p VC-1, running at a maximum bitrate of 6Mbps.
Citation? Not that I don't believe you, but everywhere I've looked for details on Netflix streaming has been "we don't really quite know what codec/bitrate they're using".
There are absolutely no users who think that getting rid of the status bar is a good idea. Absolutely none. Had you guys even bothered to consult with any actual users before making this change, you'd immediately have known that it was a stupid change to make.
I think that getting rid of the status bar is a good idea. Your statement is wrong. Absolutely wrong. Had you even bothered to consult with more "actual users" than yourself, you'd immediately have known that saying that everyone wants the status bar was a stupid statement to make.
Likewise if someone else has 3 friends, who are all just their immediate family and has locked every privacy setting as far down as possible to limit anyone else seeing anything and they are happy with that than more power to them.
I'm not sure if that was just hypothetical, but I do actually know people who do that. Indeed, more power to them.
If I view my profile without being signed in, I don't see the birthday; but, it also doesn't really look like the new profile, so either it hasn't been updated yet or something else...
If you go to edit your privacy settings and click "customize settings", there is a preview profile feature you might find useful.
The changes unsurprisingly are being met with mixed opinions ranging from rage to anger.
WTF? Can the editors please stop bashing Facebook every single time they do anything? For once, everyone I've talked to has been decently happy with this change.
From my interpretation of TFA, it just looks like some apps were accidentally passing a referrer containing the user's Facebook ID.
"Recently, it has come to our attention that several applications built on Facebook Platform were passing the User ID (UID), an identifier that we use within our APIs, in a manner that violated this policy," Vernal wrote. "In most cases, developers did not intend to pass the information, but did so because of the technical details of how the browsers work."
"Press reports have exaggerated the implication of sharing at UID [user ID]. Knowledge of a UID does not enable anyone to access private user information without explicit user consent. Nevertheless, we are committed to ensuring that even the inadvertent passing of UIDs is prevented and all applications are in compliance with our policy."
We never share your personal information with advertisers. We never sell your personal information to anyone. These protections are yours no matter what privacy settings you use; they apply equally to people who share openly with everyone and to people who share with only select friends.
