They must have been desperate for the cash. Nokia arse-raped them when Symbian was canned
EMC is in Ovens, not Ballincollig.
Tvcatchup only shows their own ads before a channel loads, all other ads are those broadcast by the channel you're watching. I don't see the problem. Also, it seems to stream at 360p at best so it's hardly in direct competition to aerial broadcasts.
Re: Mac OS X in VirtualBox works great.
I found OSX in virtual box buggy, such as doing 'About this mac' causes me to be logged on. It's more effort but it works pretty much flawlessly under VMware player.
Re: He's right about hardware and driver issues
It's not a software patent that makes using wifi on my laptop for more than an hour panic the kernel.
Re: Linux Desktop ? Yes
Any monkey any type 'apt-get install cutemonkeylollipops', figuring out the last bit is the tedious part.
Also, the package name isn't necessarily the same as the program/library name. When you search for a windows program you inevitably have a download link right there in front of you. You missed the point of Linux not being suitable for non-techies and therefore will never succeed as an OSX/windows alternative for mum and dad.
I'm glad you're an apt-get expert, I hope it's on your cv. It'll be a useful skill to have until it's replaced by cutemonkeylollipops. My technical skills are up to scratch, don't worry about me pal.
Re: Linux Desktop ? Yes
Crunchbang? Really, who decided on that stupid name? This is also something that affects Linux adoption, the ridiculous names programs are given, names that tell you nothing about what they actually do.
I got back to using Linux after losing interest a few years ago, I run in in VMware player. Fine, I don't need it enough to faff around with drive partitions. It's a mess, too many distros, I don't know what they've done to grub but installing a custom kernel requires an unacceptable amount of googling. When I need to install some program i also need to google for the inevitable ridiculous name, and google or that apt-get command. Please, no non-techie would put up with this. Linux is geared towards programmers and system builders, it always will be.
I'm not a huge fan of OSX either, to be fair. It looks really nice, mostly. Win7 has it pretty much nailed
It's the Apple iPi
MMB? LLAP? WTF?
Surely they can copy job adverts where companies look for people with Python skills as proof of usage?
It's a bit of Beagle 2
fingers in ears
La la la la la la
As far as I can tell, VS2012 is Windows 8 only. Meh.
lightning-fast Pascal Compilers
Weren't they 'lightning fast' because you had to write your code so that it wouldn't require two passes of the compiler?
HCL were there already for about two years. Raise a ticket, hear nothing back
Would he have got away with it if they were Agile?
Looks like Series 40 is getting too big for its boots. Elop won't have that!

Re: Developers Developer Developers????
I did the exact same thing. The UI is a big sluggish but it's certainly usable. I had to do some jiggery pokery with SLIC table and OEM keys though before it would activate as it installed from an OEM DVD ISO - I'll be f****d if I'm paying Acer $50 for a DVD of something I already own.
A few thousands years ago I heard some dude had to build a friggin' ark!
Re: Tea deathmatch?
chai is amazing but the jar stuff isn't great, if you want it hot it'll be too watery. It's a bit of a PITA to make yourself but all you need is strong tea (i use assam), cardamom pods, cloves, ground peppercorns, cinnamon, ginger and sugar. Boil the spices in a frying pan in a little water and some milk in a pot. When the water has boiled off.a.bit add its contents to,the milk
Re: Unbelievable, and yet....
A company that is willing to sacrifice long-term brand damage for short-term sales.
I suspect it was because the developers of these system either developed and testing using emulators in powerful desktop machines, or hardware boards where they would only test their subsystems rather than the whole package. It's only when everything gets puts together on real hardware is the system really tested.
That argument didn't help Symbian
And the battery lasted 223 seconds
Re: So the new paradign for successful project management is the same as motor racing.
I hope Nokia take this advice on baord.
Hang on a minute...
Stupid name ( like most software products ) and still no real idea what this article was all about
Re: err @Will Godfrey
All the ARM-side code does is tell the GPU to encode/decode a particular frame of video data. What has changed is that now you can tell it to encode/decode what ever you want, but that's all. You'll never get access to the parallelism of the GPU itself.
Been running Windows7 on a laptop for over 3 years now and can count on one hand the number of BSODs I've seen. All were caused by shitty graphics drivers from AMD.
They're having quite a bit of trouble hiring people.
It's unfortunate what happened to this guy but it clearly isn't wise to have the phone number of underage girls on your personal phone. Get a business phone FFS.
it's all handled in hardware combined with firmware
Is he talking about ACPI? If so, Windows-only power management then
Re: Test Your Model
Oh God! My model never factored in wind pissers :(
Translated at runtime
Probably with Google Translate or something
Re: Obviously not THAT sorry
It's more likely that it's Qualcomm that's behind the curve seeing as how Nokia have little say in the hardware stakes. It also seems to be apparent that ST-Ericsson aren't able to do much hardware-wise either, as they dumped Symbian dev in March to concentrate on WP.
