Comment ironic given the first iPhone (Score 2) 96

the first iPhone relied on the web it didnt have "apps"

it was only after the terrible web pages did they resort to containerised web pages... That game developers abused and we have the situation today...

now with the need to support android + iPhone + iPad + windows + Mac are people finally understanding that Marked up Text is much healthier and CHEAPER

its called a website and there are standards (shocking)

if your spending the peoples money (government depts) create a website that is useable
(if you must create a branded app I understand there are tools for that, they will allow you to package a website)

Comment funny thing that GPS / GCHQ / SatComms (Score 2) 81

people wonder if anyone would notice any violations of the marine park... YES, yes they would

however not the reason you might thing the island is crawling with monitoring equipment both for environmental (its quite important to know the weather above and below the water if your a navy) and machines (satellites/networking/radio/sonar) basically its a rather nice outpost on which the British get to say what goes...

so putting a nature reserve there is rather befitting

Comment free cache ! (Score 1) 95

so basically its a set of specs that allow google to cache your webpage and allow you to track it

WHY OH WHY not simply use the standards outlined here :

and then produce a validator so that sites can be cached by oh I dont know the network operator or anyone including google after all are they not closer to the endpoint ?

seems very pointless and a reaction to facebook allowing publishers to push articles in their network...
