Comment F*ck Apple. (Score -1, Offtopic) 246

They are what M$ in 90's.

I'm tasked to create webchat site. There where plenty load of technologies to deliver video and voice to viewer. However Apple gives only to HLS to play videos on their devices on web and no access to cameras from web. Also playing HLS on apple device gives a 20 sec delay to viewer.

Every other thing closed.

They reject Flash, they reject WebRTC. They reject anyhting but Apple.

Why ? is there any real technical reason ? I don't think so.

They just protecting to their iTunes Cash Cow.

Dear Apple,

we listen this song decade ago from M$, it was pretty boring and time consuming and now we have to play same boring song from you again.

Maybe you think, you pile of cash, your huge user base, your shiny inteface make this song better.

it won't.

here my song for both of you

Die die die my darling
Don't utter a single word
Die die die my darling
Just shut your pretty eyes
I'll be seeing you again
Yeah I'll be seeing you in hell
So don't cry to me oh baby
Your future's in an oblong box
Don't cry to me oh baby
You should have seen it a comin' on
Don't cry to me oh baby
Had to know it was in your power
Don't cry to me oh baby
Dead end goal for a dead end girl
Don't cry to me oh baby
And now your life drains on that floor
Don't cry to me oh baby
Die, die, die my darling
Don't utter a single word
Die, die, die my darling
Just shut your pretty mouth
I'll be seeing you again
I'll be seeing you in hell
Don't cry to me oh baby
Your future's in an oblong box
Don't cry to me oh baby
You should have seen it a-comin' on
Don't cry to me oh baby
Had to know it was in your power
Don't cry to me oh baby
Dead-end goal for a dead-end girl
Don't cry to me oh baby
Now your life drains on that floor
Don't cry to me oh baby
Die, die, die my darling
Don't utter a single word
Die, die, die my darling
Shut your pretty mouth
I'll be seeing you again
I'll be seeing you in hell
Die, die, die
Die, die, die
Die, die, die

I'm getting sick of those fools.

Guys you are failed big.

I wish to both KDE and GNOME burn to the ground....

For 12 years I use Linux desktop (mostly KDE maybe entirely KDE).

Then last year I buy ATI 66 something. Bam. All ubuntu based distros stop to working. Try to switch another but can't find a stable solution.

Then guess what ? I find that Windows 7, more stable and more productive.

Holly sh*t. I was wrong in last 12 years. Due to my stupity I lost entire decade. Not because of the bad code but because of the f*ckin politics...

Look that android thing. I came from nothing. And capure half of the market.

Linux Desktop is dead. No matter what you wheening about, it was dead, R.I.P, nada, kaput.

Long live the Android. That thing capure entire planet with a snap...

8-Core Intel Nehalem-EX To Launch This Month 186

MojoKid writes "What could you do with 8 physical cores of CPU processing power? Intel's upcoming 8-core Nehalem-EX is launching later this month, according to Intel Xeon Platform Director Shannon Poulin. The announcement puts to rest rumors that the 8-core part might be delayed, and makes good on a promise Intel made last year when the chip maker said it would release the chip in the first half of 2010. To quickly recap, Nehalem-EX boasts an extensive feature-set, including up to 8 cores per processor, up to 16 threads per processor with Intel Hyper-threading, scalability up to eight sockets via Intel's serial Quick Path Interconnect and more with third-party node controllers, and 24MB of shared cache."

Comment No. Real Sucker is Debian not KDE4 (Score 1) 368

Let me guess. Most of KDE 4 nay sayers using Debian or debian based (kubuntu etc) distro... Right ?

So here my story...

After Kubuntu 8 my KDE pains was begin. No real ATI support (for dual desktop). Sucked performance, Weird Firefox problems. Some extensions never work because of that, this . I re fresh install every Kubuntu relases. Problems are same. Somewhere between 8.10 and 9.00 I try to use Debian desktop same results. And I use that desktop for my work. My anger grows and grows. Day by day I feel like I'm using Windows 95...

One day, After one maybe more years of sucking KDE 4 experience, I was nearly switching WIndows after more than 10 years of Linux Desktop usage, at that time, I search something, on a forum, somebody suggest that Sabayon Linux (gentoo based binary thingy) for some better video peformance or someting. I decide to give a try..

After first setup probably 4 months pass.

Results are interesting.

No ATI problem. Dual desktop (which I could not run ever under Kubuntu/Debian) run like snap. Decent desktop performance. It was very nice feeling to using Linux Desktop again.

Still have problem with Pulse audio and Flash videos and some times Skype gone mad.

Other than than it was fine and working...

And this bad KDE4 experience on Debian smells to bad...

No one can tell me they can't fix that sucking Video Card problem more than a year. At that time, I curse KDE guys, I curse ATI guys and I curse my self to coose ATI. I never think it was a distro problem.

So ?

Me thinks Debianistas does not like KDE.... Because of favor for GNOME or some other stupid obsession to pure GNU in their twisted mind.

Yeah, I like Debian too and use my servers all time. And I like (k)ubuntu too.

And now

I say.

Both of them SUCK ON KDE4

If you are Debian or Debian derivated distro user and have problems with KDE4 just try something else.

Results may interesting...


New WoW Patch Brings Cross-Server Instances 342

ajs writes "World of Warcraft's Wrath of the Lich King expansion was staggered into 4 phases. The fourth and final phase, patch 3.3, was released on Tuesday. This patch is significant in that it will be the first introduction of one of the most anticipated new features in the game since PvP arenas: the cross-realm random dungeon, as well as the release of new end-game dungeons for 5, 10 and 25-player groups. The patch notes have been posted, and so has a trailer. The ultimate fight against the expansion's antagonist, the Lich King a.k.a. Arthas, will be gated as each of the four wings of the final dungeon are opened in turn — a process that may take several months. The next major patch after 3.3 (presumably 4.0) will be the release of Cataclysm, the next expansion."

EA Shuts Down Pandemic Studios, Cuts 200 Jobs 161

lbalbalba writes "Electronic Arts is shutting down its Westwood-based game developer Pandemic Studios just two years after acquiring it, putting nearly 200 people out of work. 'The struggling video game publisher informed employees Tuesday morning that it was closing the studio as part of a recently announced plan to eliminate 1,500 jobs, or 16% of its global workforce. Pandemic has about 220 employees, but an EA spokesman said that a core team, estimated by two people close to the studio to be about 25, will be integrated into the publisher's other Los Angeles studio, in Playa Vista.' An ex-developer for Pandemic attributed the studio's struggles to poor decisions from the management."
