Submission + - New Google Translate Tool (fixed) (activepolitic.com)

bs0d3 writes: "If you use google translate to translate webpages, you're in luck. Instead of simply posting a url into google translate, you now have the option to use buttons to drag into the browser's toolbar. For those who prefer the old way of using google translate where you simply post a url, you can now put it into the text box that translates text in real time. Google translate now recognizes any link posted there and automatically creates a hyper link to a translated version of that page. Google has also added a new tool that allows people to upload and translate entire documents saved to their computers."

Comment The License (Score 5, Informative) 96

While it's definitely cool that the Bundle now comes with the code for these game, make sure you read the license for publication of any finished product; while it's understandable that Introversion would want people to pay for the software, the license requires that a developer contact Introversion if they make a port, and they don't allow porting to a multitude of consumer devices (anything nintendo, sony, or microsoft makes) even if the end-user is required to buy the media required to play the game (such that they would need to purchase the full PC version.) So keep this in mind before making a PSP version (like someone did with the Aquaria source released in the first Humble Bundle.) As a modding platform and possibly as a learning tool, providing the source is very nice of Introversion. So, for the most part, kudos to them.

Comment Ubiquity Crashed During Install (Score 1) 1231

Nearing the end of the install on my laptop ubiquity crashed, this happened on each of three attempts. There had already been a bug filed on the beta and someone had found that apt-get removing ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu before running the install off the live CD solved that problem. Since that the only issues I've had have simply been me messing with the wrong files, these are easily fixed. All in all it's a pretty sleek operating system.

Comment Flash PSP (Score 1) 383

They should get some REAL flash on the PSP. The newest firmware only supports flash 6. So yes, it has flash, but the only content available is some flash games. 'Till then I'll just have to kick my brother off my computer every time I wanna watch someone jump out their second story window.
