Re: ability to discern pictures more quickly than words
Maybe it's Cockney rhyming slang in icon form?
Re: gimp? really?
I'm already not using Photoshop because I can't afford it. And I'm not using GIMP as some sort of political statement. It just happens to work for what I need. Is that not allowed?
I should also mention that I like KompoZer because it provides what I need over Onenote. Should I feel bad for being productive with that software as well?
I didn't say I was, hence the question mark. GIMP provides the subset I used in Photoshop anyway. It's free and runs on Linux, like the person asked.
Re: Somebody PLEASE!!!!
GIMP? I run it on Ubuntu, It's fine for what I need to do. I don't miss Photoshop at all.
In the Line of Fire
Not a new idea. In the 1993 Clint Eastwood movie "In the Line of Fire" the assassin made a plastic gun, and put the metal bits into a pen.
If I'm looking to buy or download something, wouldn't it make sense to add the Amazon search to software center instead?
But If they're stuck on adding all of these searches to the dash, at least offer a prefix to limit the search locally, like "my editor" or "my report" so it only looks on my computer for a file or program containing the word editor or report.
They've always reminded me of Gríma Wormtongue. Ill news is an ill guest.
So instead of all phones (except Apple) using the same thin mini-USB cable for charging, there will instead have to be several charging slabs stacked on a counter somewhere for all of the competing units? Plus when traveling I'll have to take one or more of these slabs with me? Great.
I guess I'm just crazy. I have a two-year-old Windows phone that I like better than the new Android phone I also have. Still snappy, still downloads maps and such quickly.
Probably the only way to make the phone more popular is to bundle it with a Windows computer, with a 6-month prepaid pay-per-month plan.
On my laptop I'm running Ubuntu in VirtualBox seamless mode under Windows 7. In Ubuntu I use GIMP, Meld, KLinkStatus, and VLC media player. In Windows I use various MS development tools, and one I can't do without: SQLyog.
But even if I had nothing to use in Windows, I'd still use it as a VirtualBox launcher to run different Ubuntu environments. If nothing else it does a great job of that. ;)
Re: *splutter* How much??
In the States I've gotten used to good laptops priced at $400. As Wibble reminds me I've never considered a Sony, they've always been pricey without anything compelling to make it worth it.
But a couple of months ago this life-long Windows user finally bought a 13-inch MacBook Pro. Yes, I would have loved for it to have been cheaper, but now that I have one I don't feel like I've been ripped off. Solid construction, great touch-pad, nice OS.
While I won't be ditching my Toshiba laptop anytime soon, I can see how the Mac hardware/OS integration makes it more pleasant to use.
That's fine for the VISIBLE camera...
I use a Rocketfish stylus with my iPod Touch because it's easier for me to tap some of the tiny icons that way. It also works with Android kit.
Re: A or B?
Wow, Sean Connery reads the Reg!
In my head I'm hearing...
At last, after two thousand years of research, the illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator. At last...
Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering kaboom!
But it doesn't say where the donations went. Maybe Mac users all supported Save the Whalesong while Windows users supported Save the Bing.
Re: Not just OS X
Ah, type calendar and it lists the events for today and tomorrow, using all of the files.
Re: Not just OS X
Huh, there's other calendars in there too. Like for history, music, computer-related dates, etc.
I really don't understand why they didn't plug this into the Software Center instead, where it would make more sense. You search for GIMP and hey, maybe there's a book on it in Amazon.
Sounds like me singing while I'm frying bacon.
Fa love Pa
Re: MacAfee, some years ago....
I stopped using MacAfee after it would trundle for an hour just so it could determine the estimated time it would take to perform the scan.
on the other pad...
What if they decided to fool everybody and come out with larger ipad that's poster sized?
So why not change the option text from "do not track" to "let anyone follow my every move" and the default can remain unchecked.
Cool, so one day Google will know what I'm eating to direct its advertising appropriately. And if I belch the audio could be posted on facebook.
Re: The temptation
I'd like to know where - other than Deliverance - one might expect a long sharp thing to be pulled out.
No big deal.
I'm not worried about advertiser tracking as much I LOVE DIET COKE! as the possibility of their editing your online posts on the fly.
So the jinx where any ship Scotty was on gets destroyed finally ends!
How about Exxon Gulf?
