Some people may not want a new UI every year, some are unhappy with which UI was left when the music stopped.
Hahahaha more powerful than having the source code,
Do you never tire of beclouding yourself?? I suppose not...
Well for the MENTALLY SLOW HERE I WILL EXPLAIN IT REAL CLEAR LIKE.
On iOS, you can easily change the OS AND APPLICATIONS.
On Google you can only change easily what you have source for, which is the OS - not applications.
So I'm pretty sure even the most addle-braned can understand one is greater than two...
I leave any response to your own fevered mind, I shall not read it.
Rather than finger-pointing, let's just stop doing those things. The finger-pointing and division and all the rest of the bullshit that goes with it is what enables these things to continue.
Please our women wear far too much clothing.
Meanwhile, in ten years, every tourist in DC will have a selfie drone
Which would be fine, except the DC FRZ (flight restriction zone) is a 30-mile circle around the Capital within which it is illegal to fly ANY remote control device of any kind. Includes "drones" as well as those toy RC helicopters at the mall kiosks, and the sort of RC planes that people have been flying around for many decades. Some tourist flying a quad in DC is in for a very rude awakening, as has already happened.
Yea, but a cell phone signal flying over the south lawn is a pretty clear indicator that you have an issue
Wouldn't matter. Do you understand how small the White House grounds are, and how fast even a modest quad can fly when it means business? I've got one that can do over 40mph. That would cover the distance from the sidewalk in front of the White House to the middle of the typical speech-giving area of the Rose Garden in well under 8 seconds. A drone flying waypoints - with no need for a human controller nearby or watching - could be moving that fast well before it gets to the White House fence, and be coming in 200' overhead, be above a high-profile press event in seconds, cut power and drop like a stone spewing a mist of cesium or a nice cloud of serin or laden with a nice little brick of C4, and it would be on the ground in the middle of that speech/ceremony so fast you'd have no ability to do something about it. Except maybe light it up with some sort of automated buckshot gatling gun, right in the middle of a busy urban area.
This is going to result in a lot more events being held indoors.

I figured they'd tackle something more ambitious than that with their drone offerings - a drone that (barring instructions to do otherwise) follows you around whatever you're doing and keeps the camera on you, trying to get the most epic shots. E.g., you bungee jump off a bridge, it races you to the bottom, keeping whatever distance and filming style you told it to.
But maybe it's just another remote control drone.
So you mean get rid of wide-character encodings and only use UTF-8 where unicode characters are needed? I agree.
They talk about how it's a stability release, but if you are going to compile your application with the newer dev tools you are going to have to do some work adapting to the iOS style permission model.
I'm really glad to see Android adopted this model, the previous model made no sense from any standpoint - it was worse for the users, and worse for security. Now that Android will ask for permission when you actually want to use some protected resource, they can make a way more informed choice if they should allow it or not - and on the fly decide an app can access some things and not others (say allowing Contacts but not location).
It's just a shame the older style permission model will be supported for some time to come, as it greatly eases the ability of spyware to operate on Android.
SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

Oh? So you have the source code? Snicker snort.
Your ignorance is no laughing matter.
Because of how easy Objective-C is to pull compilable headers, and how easy it is to extend any class and override any method (swizzling), you have everything you need to change ANY app or system process even though you don't have all the original source code. It's lots more powerful than just having source code for the OS and not apps...
Its' really too bad you can't understand how much more powerful this is to actual hackers.
But that's the point. If it slams into an immobile object of course. But we're not talking about anything slamming into an immobile object. From the perspective of a molecule in the gas stream, it's going about the same speed as its neighbors. It's quite cool.
As for the boundary region, even at the "pinched" funnel outlet one could be talking dozens of kilometers here. A dozen kilometers between going from zero velocity and 25 kilometers per second is roughly the same as a dozen meters between going from zero velocity and 25 meters per second. Aka, a virtually insignificant gradient.
There are still a LOT of non-smartphone owners, they would be considered switchers too.
UTF-8 is an encoding of unicode, so I'm totally not getting your "Actually I think "Unicode strings" should be avoided completely."
