Re: Does this make any difference?
Really? Oh thanks Frankee, you're so knowledgeable, please educate me more!!
Re: Strong typing would at least have thrown an error.
Posting "I didn't learn how it worked and it was different than I guessed" puts you at fault, not JS. If you don't like it once you've learnt it then that's a different issue. But complaining that it's not strongly typed is like complaining that your apple isn't orangey enough.
*(use ===, not ==, no coercion!!)
Does this make any difference?
If you're not old enough to remember the upset and distress caused by IE6 and it's non-standard ways, and you're happy for Google to be the one's setting the agenda now, then no. If you think all browsers should be capable of rendering all web pages then yes.
re: someone produces a very, very average song
Hardly average at 2 billion views......
Not proggy enough for you grandad?
Re: Don't we need a coupla two tree more parameters for this definition
I'd rather see that than 'No overload for method takes 1 argument'....
@Cliff: They really do, don't they?
Not me. What gets up my goat is the constant posting by some on here that you can make any device better by wiping it and putting your favourite Linux distro on it.
We get it! A load of people on here like Linux. Now change the fucking record.....
Why? What's going to execute them on Windows? Isn't your email client the thing that'll parse these scripts? Doesn't the mac client have the same capabilities? (Genuine technical question everyone, so can we skip the OS flames if at all possible? When I double click a .js file in windows it opens in notepad...)
Can I wipe it and put a PROPER Linux on there?
Re: Labour is having a laugh....
Well they certainly seemed to have fucked up the English Language curriculum...
Re:in the commercial world, there would be real, tangible consequences
Like when the banks nearly went bust?
Re: With 16GB of storage it'll need to be put on a diet to fit in it.
Right, 95 it is then!!
Re: The battle is lost to preserve the correct meaning of monetisation
and "curate's egg". Apparently another phrase for "a bit shit" is more valuable than a specific one for "they say bits are ok but it actually has no redeeming features"...
...can I wipe it and put PROPER Windows on there?
Got some Chop Suey warming by the fire...
Show us yer knickers!
Re: With the aforementioned AdBlock...
...there's no revenue for the site and it'll end up titsup. Noscript allows static ads. (Of course, if the ad revenue collection requires JS then there's still no cash, but where money's concerned people tend to care more about coping without JS...)
Re: it's like the MS JPG issue from several years back.
No it's not! This is Google, hence fixing it in an update is ok and we can move on. Nothing like MS!!!
They could compromise the system though. Security and minimal attack surface are more important. I would suggest these engineers get a hobby that isn't just fucking around with their day jobs (or make a game that stands alone) and stop putting back doors in, even if they think they're robust.
Re: I seem to be unpopular with the 14 programmers who couldn't bear to leave VB behind today.
Unpopular? No, the replies clearly state why they disagree with you. The concepts you need to learn to code are language agnostic.
Stop pretending it's all VB diehards hating. (Though you've clearly no knowledge of vb.net....)
Re: A dangerous worm has been discovered
except Worm is just the name of the team that wrote the exploit, it's not a worm. It's an exploit that requires users to download and run a compromised Powerpoint presentation. Quite unlike the Heartbleed and Shellshock exploits.
Re: So that rules out anyone at MS or RIM/Blackberry ...
Re: I don't feel the need to look at my smartphone constantly
Me neither, not sure why you think that's relevant. How about answering the phone while walking carrying something in one hand?
Re: I don't get this problem.
It's for when you're using your phone while doing something else, say eating a bowl of cornflakes. One hand holds the spoon and feeds you, the other works the browsing device.
Accuracy is important. This is a technology news site. You sound more upset than the original poster....
arguing over the file system for an OS that's supposed to be all cloudy.
However much you may talk it up, it's difficult to see how having two separate pay grades for men and woman can be less complicated than having one for both sexes. Sounds like nonsense to me.
Re: difficult to use this sort of setup in a environment similar to what I have.
"All the content in RoomAlive is driven in real-time and dynamically adapts to the exact colour and geometry of the user's living room". Sounds like they're specifically trying to target that issue.
Though it was MS, not Google.
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, honest!
I mean Boo! Down with Micro$oft!
doesn't mean you have to trust third parties to host those libraries.
Yes, I know.
Re: all they are really doing is (slightly) inconveniencing me
Presumably the idea is to keep cached copies of data on your device to a minimum. With a web front end there might be some caching of assets but you'd hope that actual email contents wouldn't get cached. That's not the case if you run a fat email client, which is why they require the remote wipe capability.
Seems perfectly sensible and reasonable.
Re: Other way round
Put an album on then channel surf with the sound down till you find something that sort of goes with the music. Cool!
Re: they're just in it for the money
Companies just in it for the money you say? Wow, every day's a school day!
Re: with no simple way to prevent users receiving the MS update nag...
other than flagging the update as "don't show me this again"....
@Ashley Ward, it's not really a big deal.
Really? How many private car sales are there a month? The govmnt just grabbed themselves an extra months road tax off every one. It's a cynical attempt to weasel some more cash out of the plebs.
If the car is taxed why should changing owner untax it?
Re: wait until a few days after teh renewal date
Surely that's legal, you get charged for the whole month even if you pay on the 30th, so it must be back--dated...
re: This whole thing is just natural selection at work.
Yeah, it's targeting freetards and maclusers....
Re: So how commonly used is the "auth-user-pass-verify" option used though?
Surely it's not how often it's used that's important, it's how often it's enabled.
Re: PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE!
What about Plan Z?
It's evil! It's diabolical! It's lemon-scented!!
re: most of them, if they are Linux based, are using Busybox
Oh fine, as long as most routers are secure I won't worry. That's standard security practice isn't it? You know, just do the best you can, a few holes here and there probably don't matter....
Re: Feminism is about equality, that's it.
Typical fucking SJW bullshit!
I myself prefer social injustice! (As long as I'm not subjected it, obv....)
Re: Yeah right....
Like we're going to listen to someone who uses Windows 8!!! I'm much more interested in the opinions of those who won't go anywhere near it, they give a much clearer impression of how shit it is.
Re: others call it... suboptimal
Are you saying my arse is suboptimal?!?!?!?
Re: Pure genius
Re: Even Rolex can be had for as little as 5000Chf
Seriously? You think prohibitively expensive = cool?
Cool has nothing to do with how much something costs. This list is nonsense, the Fonz is not interested in any of these brands.
Re: OS X is already a fully scriptable OS @sabroni
Ah, so this is just adding a more popular language so people don't have to learn Apple script or use graphics. Interesting. Thanks for the reply!
Re: OS X is already a fully scriptable OS
What are you saying? There's already a scripting language for OS X or just that it has the necessary hooks?
Re: No more $20 for two or three good tracks and a load of filler crap.
You've been buying the wrong albums.
Re: I already see too much on HD
I know! Imagine actually being that close to a real woman! Nightmare!!
