Comment A Year of My Life Lost on NPAPI (Score 2) 163

5 years ago, part of my job was keeping an NPAPI plugin running on the Mac. Apple had transitioned their support to a new graphics and event model and it was a lot of work refactoring our plugin. And of course, that ended up being wasted time we should have spent transitioning to writing a Javascript version of our app.

Comment Anandtech for the Quantitative Results (Score 1) 225

Here is the display section of Anandtech's iPhone 6S and 6S+ review.

There is something for everyone there, depending on what metric you think is most important. It seems as though the iPhone 6 has one of the best screens in terms of accuracy, but probably the Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge is the best overall screen.
Here is the Anandtech iPhone 6 review from last year:

At that time, the iPhone had easily the best display on a phone in display accuracy and was quite good at every other characteristic.
The lesson here is that it is probably a good time for Apple to jump off the IPS train.

Comment Re:Don't worry, rasing the minimum wage will kill (Score 1) 394

I think you are mis-remembering. It was Joe Lieberman of CT who didn't want single-payer. Strange how you disparage all those Democrats who took courageous/suicidal votes against their constituents wishes, and ended up paying for it with their seats. Such that now there is only a single Democratic senator in all of the old South.

Comment Houses Are Money Pits (Score 1) 264

First of all, it's a bad idea to take out a 30 year mortgage. A 30 year mortgage is for someone who is buying too much house for their income. Imagine a 3rd person who buys a house for 3x their income, pays it off in 10-15 years, and then spends the remaining 15-20 years investing his housing money. (As it happens, I took out a 30 year mortgage, but refinanced it to a 10 year mortgage after 5 years). Second, you probably shouldn't expect to get twice the salary moving to SV.
