This is the sort of socially responsible reporting and analysis for which The Register is rightfully praised. Clear, concise, weighing both moral and commercial considerations, and coming out on the side of the little man.
Well done!. I've recommended The Register to all my friends!
(There, I've left a favourable review. Now, please release my old granny and little puppy from the costody of the BOFH)
C# vs C++
There's a lot of C# development going on out there, and has been at least since .NET 2.1
Just for fun, go to any large IT job site and compare the number of listings you get for C# and C++. Even discounting ASP.NET work done in C#, there's a lot of deman for .NET developers, which is an indication of how many (in-house, if nothing else) applications are developed in C#
(Personally, I prefer C++ out of habit, but C# and .NET can be quite nifty in many cases)
Um... .NET is compiled to byte code, so Win8-ARM would just need to provide a .NET runtime to permit backwards compatibility. No recompilation necessary.
Oh, not if you've written your app in C/C++ of course, but they've been saying .NET is the future for close to a decade now.
This, of course, is a variant implementation of the RFC1149 standard.
The scary thing is that I wouldn't put it past them. Today, though, I'll file it under "Well executed April Fools"
Apples and oranges
Your YouTube streams aren't Google's bandwidth usage. You must separate the traffic Google creates for its own use (i.e. indexing bots, page and image caching, data replication), and what other net users creates by accessing Google properties (YouTube, GMail etc).
A wink is as good as a nod
Given the amount of frenzy whipped up over this, and the flutter it's caused, there's only one possible name for this device:
Two LTE networks
One in Stockholm (on Ericsson kit) and one in Oslo (on Huwaei kit). Both run by the same operator though.
