Comment Incognito mode (Score 1) 103

I have been using Incognito mode for quite many years mostly because of having to log in to more than one gmail accounts simultaneously. The only thing that I miss is the ability to have them all in one window in different tabs. But on the other hand having different accounts in different windows can be also considered as a feature, as it greatly helps in separating tabs showing data from the same account. It also enables me not have to push that annoying sign in with a different account link, because it always loads a fresh login page as if I have never been to gmail.com before.

Comment Way too expensive (Score 1) 376

That is gross! In Hungary I pay $10/month for unlimited data plan. Well, it is an enterprise price plan, but still. After 2 GB mobile operator may limit bandwidth to around 1 Mbit/sec. However a friend of mine once had an insane amount of 200 Gb traffic in a month and he did not notice any degradation in speed, it was always well above 2 Mbit, sometimes reaching 5 Mbit/s. Verizon has clearly gone out of its mind.

TI-Nspire Hack Enables User Programming 88

An anonymous reader writes "Texas Instruments' most recent, ARM-based series of graphing calculators, the TI-Nspire line, has long resisted users' efforts to run their own software. (Unlike other TI calculator models, which can be programmed either in BASIC, C, or assembly language, the Nspire only supports an extremely limited form of BASIC.) A bug in the Nspire's OS was recently discovered, however, which can be exploited to execute arbitrary machine code. Now the first version of a tool called Ndless has been released, enabling users, for the first time, to write and run their own C and assembly programs on the device. This opens up exciting new possibilities for these devices, which are extremely powerful compared to TI's other calculator offerings, but (thanks to the built-in software's limitations) have hitherto been largely ignored by the calculator programming community."
