Adobe's revenge on Steve Jobs: HTML5

David Karla

Totally agree here ... I've shifted from developing in a single (relatively) stable platform, flash/flex ... to the fragmented mess that is html5/css/js, and native ios, and native android in parallel. Not pretty. And by the time html5 catches up, people will then start making the same complaints about it as they did about flash.

Torvalds: I want to be nice, and curse less, but it's just not in me

David Karla

using his product ...

actually, chances are that you have used his product, perhaps without even realizing it ... I'm glad he's blunt. I don't think he's any less blunt than Jobs was, but perhaps he doesn't have the reality distortion field that would let him get away with it.

Boffins explain research with interpretive dance

Re: @Everybody (so far)

agreed ... I think the point is that they've done the science side more than adequately ... props to them for having fun with it, and showing that this can have a light side.

Sony threatens to ban PS3 jailbreakers from network

Grenade

fair enough but

I could understand them wanting to kick people playing pirate games, and I wish they'd put as much effort into stopping people who are running hacks as they have in attacking the hackers ...

sony don't seem to have the slightest interest in stopping cheats. i'm a noob on consoles, but I've played enough on friends consoles to see that something like 1/4 or more of players on games like COD and MW are running hacks and fucking things up for regular players. a lot of these hacks are detectable, but not console mods (eg lagging or hexedits).

grenade for spam!
