Just ticking those off as I read..
Various incarnations of Palm Pilots... with docking pods.
A Dab wavefinder, simply too cool a design to discard, *Three* 3Com Audrey's, A Microwriter. er, a box full of ribbon cables.
ah... a full height 5 1/4" EDSI hard disk. and a full length full height MDA video card (with onboard parallel port! woo)
PlayTV is still a pretty dismal offering considering the capabilities of the PS3 and hasn't seen any significant improvements since release. Why is there any need to "export" to XMB anyway? why isn't it all neatly integrated in the first place? why can't I schedule recordings over the internet?
The article a a little misleading here since the example shown doesn't contain more information itself.
The Microsoft tag only holds 105 *bits* of data, versus your example QR code (which actually would contain 440 bits or 77 alphanumeric characters not 250 as it is a 29x29 matrix assuming the lowest ECC level).
Yes there's more data available by using a tinyurl style link via Microsoft.... but you could of course do exactly the same with a QR tag.
There's no mention of Apple in the original article. and the article and statistics are referring specifically to Linux the kernel - not "Linux" the GNU ecosystem.
Original article: "Those figures also don't include companies like Google which rely on Linux-based systems for their own technology, but tend not to contribute code back to the kernel."
Register article: "The likes of Google and Apple were notably absent from Corbet's list as, while both companies use Linux-based systems to build their tech, neither have a tendency to contribute code back to the kernel."
So whilst Apple do indeed use lots of components of the Linux environment and that's a valid point the register article could be discussing it's nothing to do with the kernel which is what this report was referring to.
oh one more please?
You're both wrong of course. decade from the latin "decas" meaning a period of 10 years.
i.e. any 10 years.So when we say "this last decade", we are referring to the previous 10 years. We could in fact compile a list of the most pedantic posts of the last decade in the year 2012.
The designation is therefore used by well pretty much anyone - except you two of course - as a shorthand for a group of 10 years in the same "X0's" grouping. i.e. the 80's the 90's etc.
What you *should* have quibbled as professional pedantrists is that saying "the decade" is inaccurate.
"when there's a perfectly good one out there."
which *one* are you referring to there? KOffice has always been rather impressive, and quite often a more *interesting* approach to the UI than openoffice which has tended to just be an MSOffice clone. Also KWord includes a text mode akin to the MSOffice draft mode. where's that in openoffice?
"Kids, there's lots of valuable software that still needs writing"
you think kids are the only ones writing open source software? which *valuable* software do you think still needs writing anyway?
er actually it's quite a handy way of getting a massive discount and better offer. :)
you ring up, ask for a MAC, get passed to the retention department, they grovel, you sigh a few times and suggest a discount/few free months/new mobile phone etc and they give it to you.
probably limited to trying it once a year though I guess. :D
Because occasionally.... just occasionally you might not be able to be able to use https for some reason and you're prepared to take the risk of using an unsecured connection "just that once" to get at something?
or... perhaps I'm using my gmail account for a non-personal, non-private, non-sensitive, non-secret use and I'm not particularly bothered if the communications are open at all?
"Get a fecking life! It's not like they got sent a dead dog in the delivery, only a packet of rubbers!"
you sir. are a fool sir.
they didn't send anything out. they added the condoms to the purchasers list of favourite items on the website as part of a marketing ruse to try and get people to buy them.
