Pope tells priests - get to grips with blogs, web vids

It would only be appropriate therefore...

... to equip his army of minions with Jesus phones?

Nothing wrong with kit lenses

The latest round of kit lenses are actually really good performers. The only reason to upgrade is if you need either a) something tougher and better built; or b) to shoot in lower light, i.e. a faster maximum aperture. There is nothing wrong with the kit lens for the crowd that buys these cameras, supplement it with Nikon's excellent 35mm f/1.8G DX prime and you have a very well-rounded kit.

Inside Microsoft's 'New Xbox Experience'

Nice!

The update is nice, much less radical that I expected. Probably because the avatars don't feature quite as much as all the hype would have you believe. The updated look and feel is a lot more contemporary, and agreed - it is something of a cross between the Wii and PS3 UIs, and a good one at that. I always found the Wii way too simplistic, NXE is just about right.

Maven and Eclipse strive for Visual Studio 'power'

Refactoring vs. DnD

@Kieron Wilkinson, I think where actual coding is concerned - you are 100% right. However I am not sure if the visual web tools for JSF are anywhere near Microsoft's. NetBeans' GUI builder is really decent.

Ruby flaws send security researchers into shock

But Java's so fat and bloated man, and Ruby's like cool and stuff

One of the major concerns I had about Rails was the utter lack of security support at the framework level. It wouldn't surprise me if most apps out there have tons of holes simply because there is no standard way of securing them. But vulnerabilities at the language level - ouch!

Google Porn Beta

What an excellent idea! Finally they can launch AdSense Adult Edition and start making some bucks off all that porn traffic they generate :-)

Seagate CEO flips patent finger at SSD makers

Pavel Tcholakov
Thumb Down

Weasly behavior

Surely if SSD makers legitimately licensed SATA (what other "ways storage devices talk to computers" are there?) then they are pretty well covered against this sort of thing? Seagate is behaving exactly like the RIAA in the face of a new, disruptive technology.
