Microsoft's IE9: Don't believe the hype


IE9 and standards

You're right, they don't care about standards.


iPod meltdown strands Tokyo commuters



I use the line everyday to work and luckily I was not around during the meltdown.

Steve Jobs issues open letter on Flash


You're right

and if flash does die, those annoying flash ads will be replaced by hideous embedded HTML 5 videos and this time your NoScript plugin won't be able to stop it.

Maybe someone will come up with NoVideo who knows.

Vendor lock in?

I don't believe any web applications are too big/complicated to rewrite.

Losing data means no work right so it must be good for everyone.


Any company

If whatever company you're working on right now is not making money then you're not gonna get paychecks.

It's as simple as that.

Imagine buying a second hand house and the previous owner keeps asking whether he can live with you.

It's just crazy.

Even if he only gets 1% of the $1bn that's $10mil better of.

Plus he forks it already (MariaDB), I don't know why he keeps pulling strings.
