Like when the banks nearly went bust?
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!!)
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.
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?
Right, 95 it is then!!
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?
Show us yer knickers!
...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...)
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.
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....)
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.
Me neither, not sure why you think that's relevant. How about answering the phone while walking carrying something in one hand?
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.
"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.
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.
Put an album on then channel surf with the sound down till you find something that sort of goes with the music. Cool!
Companies just in it for the money you say? Wow, every day's a school day!
other than flagging the update as "don't show me this again"....
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?
Surely that's legal, you get charged for the whole month even if you pay on the 30th, so it must be back--dated...
Yeah, it's targeting freetards and maclusers....
Surely it's not how often it's used that's important, it's how often it's enabled.
What about Plan Z?
It's evil! It's diabolical! It's lemon-scented!!
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....
Typical fucking SJW bullshit!
I myself prefer social injustice! (As long as I'm not subjected it, obv....)
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.
Are you saying my arse is suboptimal?!?!?!?
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.
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!
What are you saying? There's already a scripting language for OS X or just that it has the necessary hooks?
You've been buying the wrong albums.
I know! Imagine actually being that close to a real woman! Nightmare!!
Because it means Apple gets to decide which capabilities gain traction, not the market or the users?
I'm on 4.4.4, that's not 4.4 or under. It's a Moto G so not an unpopular handset.
None of those things are addressable from the other side of the world though. Anyone on the internet could attempt to compromise your intellifiridge, how many of them could access your house as easily?
Hey, he's only a terrorist, no need to get nasty!
