Nice to see facebook taking this huge step away from their walled garden approach. The next logical step would be to support federation so folks don't actually need to have a facebook account to chat.
How about no.
Ever try Dragon Player? I think it is sufficiently no-nonsense for even the most ADD user.
They did. Its called twitter.
The way they advertised it here on my campus, you'd think you'd get expelled by just mentioning the words "sharing". Maybe even "fair use".
Whole news item summary sounds like an Apple troll.
I disagree. If you've ever used Ruckus, you can't say you liked it. Most of iTunes is DRM-free now anyways. The only reason Ruckus got any popularity was because it was marketed to college campuses as a safe alternative to file sharing. Naturally, paranoid campuses (such as mine) promoted it heavily, trying to keep the RIAA off their backs.
Depends on which pointer you've used. I've tried the ones on dell laptops, and it takes about a half second to register any movement.
However, the ones on my thinkpads and my compaq armada (from '98) work like a dream. Just about everyone I know who had your same idea that a trackpoint is unusable used one of my thinkpads for about 10 minutes and suddenly hated touchpads. They thought it a marvel that they're so rare. Try playing a FPS with a trackpoint instead of a touchpad.
The least they could do is give us an option.
