I hope Google have their patent cheque book at the ready, a lot of the new features look a lot like Microsoft's Photosynth technology
NavTeq, so long and thanks for all the tiles
When Google enable Map Maker for a country it means that they've ditched their reliance on 3rd parties for map data.
The Google Map is now exclusively Copyright Google 2013 for map data. (external companies are still required for satellite imagery)
Re: Chrome starting to fall behind
What is that blazingly fast Firefox on Android that you speak of? Is it some special internal build, because even the public nightly's aren't up to much.
Opera older presto based browser was much more superior to both.
What about Morrissey?!
Opera's Bruce Lawson also dissed Morrissey's solo career, where's your comment on that?!
Re: I just want to run Ubuntu on my tablet...
You will, tomorrow, when the code is released.
All smoke and no flame
Not much of a flame...
There's a giant in South Korea?!
If Apple want to review Samsung's source code all they need is, to paraphrase Andy Rubin:
mkdir android ; cd android ; repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git ; repo sync ;
Mozilla attempted something similar with Junior for iPad. This is just a concept UI for iPad, which doesn't allow Opera's own Presto to run.
I still have to see any official verification of this being an actual move by Opera. Some articles even incorrectly claimed the gentleman in the video is the CEO, which he is not.
It's not like he hurled a chair across a room at the guy.
He's also the guy who invented the home computer, and a freakin' genius!
The current WebRTC spec does not lack Peer-to-peer capability, it has both a P2P messengering and data API's. Even dev versions of Chrome have it implemented and hidden behind about:flags.
Re: Not this again
Last time I went through the shopping cart flow to buy an Ubuntu machine off Dell, they suggested I used Internet Explorer 7
The last decent Ubuntu based machine Dell stocked was the Mini 10, however Dell got seriously burned by punters buying the cheapest one they saw and then complaining when it "didn't have Windows". Picked up a couple at the Dell Outlet for €199.
Inertial navigation? Monitoring the barometer? Or guestimating from flight predicted course?
So 2014 covers displaying the browser choice screen on Windows 8 too? What about Windows RT?
And I've been looking but I can't seem to find the browser choice screen on Windows Phone 7 either?
What about testing the motor in an environment that lacks any O2 i.e. in a an airtight pit that's filled with dryice. They you could rule in(or out) the lack of oxygen being the issue rather than the low pressure.
It's also the first desktop stable to ship with HTML5's getUserMedia API for camera access. Opera Mobile on Android already has access to the camera.
It's the least they can do.
For a company who's majority of consumer products are built on the Linux kernel, its the least they could do.
Based on their 2011 phone sales alone, that works out at $0.0016 per device. Add to that TV and DVD/BluRay sales and that contribution per device drops even more.
What's up with the hipster lookin' PTX photo?
Who's got money on zombie Steve Jobs returning to steal the knighthood, because it was obviously intended for him. Steve deserves it.
And that is why he is our king.
Better Photo Apps
There are much better apps out there for photo manipulation, e.g. Magic Hour, Pixlr-o-matic and Retro Camera, but for a pure hipster photo community it's hard to beat Instagram.
Personally I do most of the photo warping in other apps and just use Instagram as a place to put photos without fotospamming off my friends on Twitter or Facebook.
I see in keeping with the Nordic traditions, Opera is the browser of choice for HbbTV.
As an Irish citizen, I wonder what it means for Irish consumers as most of our electronic devices are sold by UK retailers (the local Sony Center's only closed last week after Dixons Retail drove them into the ground). The Irish Digital TV service only started last year, SaorView, and is only compatable with Freeview HD devices (i.e. we only broadcast MP4 not MPEG2)
Aged not Distilled
The Whisky will be space AGED, not space DISTILLED.
It's been months and my system still can't whois the .xxx domain. This'll happen all over the place with dotBrand
Dormant My Ass
If they're not using that code, then they don't need that permission and it should be removed.
If they do introduce a new feature that uses, then change the app permissions so the user is prompted to accept the app permissions again with the text message access hightlighted as new.
Youtube accessing the camera isn't an issue at all, the Youtube can invoke the camera so that you can take videos to post to Youtube.
"Foursquare more or less invented the concept of checking into locations"
Foursquare didn't invent the concept, Dodgeball did which was subsequently bought by Google in 2005 and became Latitude, while the Dodgeball founders left and setup Foursquare.
It's very easy to get ICS on a UK WiFi Xoom. No need to root it, just unlock the bootloader, download the official Xoom US WiFi ROM from the Motorola website and once it boots it updates itself to 4.0.3
The 3 strikes rule might be dead, but the record industry have sunk their claws into government and the Irish government is to legislate in the new year against downloaders.
I saw that film (both the rough and final cut) and I can say without doubt that the real criminals were those behind the film.
A more heinous crime against the art of film making would be hard to find.
Could be due to Apple's cloud platform straddling both the MS Azure and AWS
Lack of Location
Having played around with one for a few hours, the thing that disappoints me is that it totally lacks geolocation. The API has been removed from the default browser, and it hampers third party (Opera Mobile) access to the geolocation info.
The Gnomes are happy
Of the 10 or so friends I know using Ubuntu, only one has moved to Unity, the rest of us have stuck with the last good build with Gnome 10.10, some stil on 10.04 LTS.
Those versions are still stable enough for everyday use. I wouldn't even entertain moving over to a Red Hat derivative. Those numbers are for the number of people looking at the various sites, not active installs.
