Submission + - Which Programming Language Can Make You Earn More Money As a Programmer (tweakyourbiz.com)

Numan Young writes: It is common practice among programmers to choose a programming language that has the highest profitability. The whole topic of selecting a programming language based on money is debatable, and that’s why we will recommend you to read an interesting article by Michael Byrne where the author advocates on not picking a programming language based only on the salary or profitability.

Comment TV;s should be fairly dumb. (Score 1) 234

The TV should just be a display device and we need an app that agregates content from different providers (Netflix / Amazon / Hulu / Whatever) I dont care about whether what I want to watch comes from Netflix or Elsewhere . I want to use the same interface to access all my media from my subscriptions , local content and other sources. My user experience should be : select item for viewing and play on tv.

Just my opinion - Like mobile phones and tablets, you are at the mercy of the manufacturer to provide updates to the installed OS - and that the OS will have a good ecosystem of apps.

If the smart features are good then i will use them - but for the most part my PS4 & Chromecast will provide most of the features a smart TV offers. N

Rinse , Recycle, Repeat. This is a tired argument and while once it may have been a legitimate one its really no longer the case. I am constantly amazed that with windows you usually have to install bloatware and over engineered apps when installing drivers for a new hardware peripheral. On Linux it is about as plug and play as it gets , often requiring no additional installations at all.
