Unlocked: The hidden love note on the grave of America's first crypto power-couple


What's the message in the title?

Why Firefox? Because not everybody is a web designer, silly


Re: I recently ditched Firefox.

I don't know what you've been doing but ALSA is still there and drives the hardware, pulseaudio mixes multiple applications sound sources together, has done for years reliably on my Fedora laptop. When I run JACK2 pulse suspends itself and gets out of the way of the hardware until I terminate JACK and then it takes over again. Never had an issue with it. Whatever you're doing, you're doing it wrong. Firefox can be compiled to use JACK too if you like.

Re: "Absolutely no one can make sense of the United States' infatuation with firearms."

It will surprise absolutely no-one that farmers have guns on this side of the pond too. However that doesn't answer the infatuation and how you ended up with a 9 year old having an automatic weapon and being filmed shooting her instructor with it.

Whats needed is a federated thread-able searchable categorisation based messaging protocol. You know, like NNTP

Open-source Linux doesn't pay, said no one ever at Red Hat


Re: Even if it doesn't pay.

You're suggesting the company that bought a .NET virtualisation management application and rewrote the whole thing in Java and then open sourced it doesn't have some sort of commitment to the GPL?

Cops think Mt Gox meltdown was an 'INSIDE JOB' – report



Mt Gox? Silly people, it's not a mountain. it's Magic the Gathering Online Exchange (MtGOX). Which I think reveals the problem. ADnDOX would have been much more secure.

What about the P2


Huawei exec: 'Word of mouth' will beat Apple and Samsung in Europe


Posh Landfill

Huawei need to buck their ideas up regarding OS updates if they really want to make an impact. the current Flagship P6 is still on 4.2. Although Chinese users have had an upgrade to 4.4 recently. the previous top line phone the P2 hasn't seen any updates and is still on 4.1. It's just another Landfill handset maker with pretentions.

Ofcom maps state of UK broadband


Speed Bands

Interesting that scores of 2 to 4 are for an average sync speed of 6 to 16Mb/s. A bandwidth of 10Mb/s over 3 points. Providers advertise up to 24Mb/s which is a bandwidth of 8Mb/s in which they can attain a score of 1. Now, note the number of authorities with an average sync speed score of 1.

Whats that Oracle?

Your suddenly backing OpenOffice? I wondered why you suddenly woke up.

Oracle re-commits to ODF after OpenOffice divorce



Am I the only person who is viewing Libre Office as a cynical opportunistic rebranding of Novells Go-oo.org project which Red Hat, Canonical et al are already part of? Go on Reg, your supposed to be journalists. Journal this.

For Forks Sake?

So why did they feel the need to set up a whole new fork and not join go-oo which is what ubuntu and the like have been using for years because Sun were too closed source?
