45% of Android users to upgrade to rival phone OSes

Why such a low retention rate for Samsung?

Isn't the Galaxy S II supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread? I ask because my Desire is coming to the end of its contract and I've been eyeing one off.

Are people buying Samsungs only to find the product doesn't live up to the reviews/hype? Seems odd that so few people with Samsungs say they'll get another one.

err..no

JQuery is for web devs on ridiculously short deadlines who can't be arsed re-inventing the wheel for the 15th time on 5 different browser platforms and want to go home to their real lives at 5pm.

Beer, coz I'd rather have that than spend extra hours hacking code.

Almost time to upgrade

Usually 10.x.2 is the accepted upgradable version from earlier pussies. I wonder if it's worth hanging in till 10.x.3 this time?

Not that I've still seen any reason to upgrade from Snow Leopard...

Moore's Law journalistic FAIL

Moore's Law:

The number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years.

That's it. Nothing about disk capacity or speed. Certainly nothing to do with network bandwidth. Please don't write crap.

Google in preemptive strike on Microsoft Office 365

DanM

Tried Google Docs, went back to MS

Call me when Google lets you customize styles and create your own templates. Apparently they used to, once upon a time, then pulled the plug. This makes them useless for corporate docs.

Of all the movies to be sued for downloading

Couldn't they have at least picked one that wouldn't induce howls of laughter from friends, family and colleagues when the name of the movie is divulged? If you're going to do that sort of thing, at least have some taste in what you pirate!

Mozilla squirts out Thunderbird 3

DanM
FAIL

Beta quality at best

This is possibly the poorest quality "release" I've seen the boys and girls at Mozilla produce. Crashes on first runs, display bugs in dialog boxes, LDAP certificate dialog boxes that go nowhere - all in the first 5 minutes of running. Certainly below the standards usually set by TB releases.

A real shame, looks like I'm stuck with Outlook for now.

Man dissects Apple's Magic Mouse

Thumb Up

An improvement on the mighty mouse

At least you wont' have to turn it upside down and give it a good hard rub every week to get the grit out of the track ball. If only they offered a wired version so we didn't have to worry about batteries.
