Re: The Wild-West days are here again
Interesting point. There's only two problems: (1) by the time a government decides it wants these it will be too late, and (2) their usual contractors would take 20 years to build the array, and fail anyway.
I take it that reading comprehension is not your strong point?
Re: Obviously ...
Would this also be 11 year old battery tech, perchance?
Not sniping, just curious.
He deserves a coveted SPG T-Shirt as a fellow traveller, surely?
Gasp! So Adobe's odd policy of charging more for downloads than boxed media finally bites the big one.
I'm astonished it lasted this long. Welcome to the nineties, Adobe!
The real crime here would be putting ketchup on the bacon. The adding sugar business is a slippery slope - before you know it you'll have gone all North American and embraced maple syrup.
Tasty brown bread, no butter, lots of bacon. You know it makes sense.
Just wait until the upgrade - that laser will be awesome once the illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator is attached.

Actually, killing VBA on the Mac back in 2006 was a porting issue. Lots of gnarly assembly language was involved. You can find the details here: http://www.schwieb.com/blog/2006/08/08/saying-goodbye-to-visual-basic/.
Re: Koch brothers takeover of IEEE?
Put a sock in it, will you? Leave the feral politics and zealotry at the US border and give the rest of us some peace.

Here's an awesome teardown of PHP for those who haven't seen it yet :
Re: Its not just opengl
Now that's just missing the point. Spectacularly.
Mono is useful only if your app was written for WP7 first. That's not exactly useful for (a) existing apps or (b) people writing new stuff that want to target markets where they'll actually make money.
It would have to be unregistered, and always topped up with cash. Use plastic once, and the connection can be made.
So Ballmer's throwing another bunga-bunga party? I'll never be able to look at his red sweaty face in the same way again...
I think you've picked a nice metric to see if Microsoft has fixed its internal warfare. In order to port Office to ARM, they'll have to port the UI to Metro (if I've managed to make sense of their roadmap).
The Office group refused to port to the old Windows tablet PCs, after all.
I knew you could do it -- an article about Apple that didn't include "fanboi". Way to go!
Apple Mail works nicely with Exchange if you use the DavMail gateway:
I gave up on Entourage when Microsoft pushed out an update that would crash it on random mouse clicks and left it like that for weeks.
So... time to return the favour and write a H.264 plugin for Chrome then?
A quick grope around the Internets found this: http://www.scribd.com/doc/35072457/Jackeey-Response. It's not totally convincing -- the device info and phone number should have been hashed.
The action now moves to the hardware side. After all, one reason Apple's fond of H.264 is the battery implications of moving to a software codec on iPhone and iPads. I wonder what's going to be available in a year or two?
I wonder if they've remembered to encrypt the control link this time?
Ah. ACPO. So the investigation is being done by an outfit that was set up to be immune to FOI requests. Now isn't that comforting?
How about making the iPhone version cache web pages so we can read The Reg on the tube?
