So 2017 will be remembered as the year Berners-Lee sold out.
I've been very happy with Hover (run by Tucows).
Have ten upvotes and a pint, sir.
You beat me to it.
123 reasons to stick with OSX.
Never. Use. iTunes. For. Anything.
Is... did they actually ask whether anyone wanted it?
Azure also stinks. The situation is one of across-the-board stinkiness.
Flash ads haven't foisted themselves onto my Mac for over a year, since I completely uninstalled Flash on all my browsers. And neither have any other ads, thanks to Adblock Plus and Ghostery.
I completely uninstalled Flash on my Mac over a year ago and haven't missed it. In fact the only site I've noticed where I can't get all the content is of course the BBC news site, and let's face it, there's enough written content on that site that missing the odd video doesn't matter.
Azure's an ugly, unreliable cloud. FTFY.
With TWO control panels, neither of which works properly, confusing infrastructure, high pricing, frequent glitches in webapp uptime, poor performance, crappy billing interface, .....
Just restore a backup to an alternative server and repoint the DNS. They do have backups, right?
Now that Parse has been open sourced, there's nothing to stop an enterprising company from offering 'Son of Parse' and we can all migrate to that. Let's hope someone does.
Three editor windows? What generosity! How about the other 15 that I normally need to have open using tabs when developing with phpStorm.
...it ran OSX.
This may have been touched on, but surely there are a generous handful of laws in the UK and Europe that should prevent pretty much ALL of the site's features? And good job too.
I trust Verisign about as much as I trust Google, which is about as far as I could spit a large rat. I'll stick to OpenDNS. Until someone reveals that they're harvesting personal info as well...
Either a lame attempt at humour or the author has been at the paint thinner...
The man continues to be a total cockwomble.
Huge publicity for Apple's new service, huge publicity for Ms Swift's new album. Totally obvious that it was a stunt set up between them.
AccountKiller.com has been offering the same service for quite a while I believe.
"the ability to track one's eyes (to see which advert is being viewed) is already available and slipping into mainstream products"
Would someone in the know explain how this works, seeing as I only ever enable my webcam when using Skype to call family? What mainstream products? How do they track my eye movements without access to my webcam? This sounds very much like a non-researched sweeping statement...
is a cunt. Simples. Why is this news?
This article has inspired me to wipe my cookies, disable third party cookies and install Ghostery.
"a 13in laptop should really be 1920 x 1080 in this day and age"
Man, you've got good eyes...
In proper English (i.e. British English), if you say "rowter" you're talking about a power tool that carves shapes out of wood. The pronunciation for a network routing device is "rooter".
*bearded* - I think I see the problem.
Unless it will run Skype (without being tied to one particular US ISP), it's not coming anywhere near my shortlist. Lack of Skype was what made me jump ship from BB to HTC.
...WP Super Cache is better anyway.
Travelled Birmingham to Euston twice last week on Virgin Trains. Both times the label by my seat said "enhanced mobile reception on this train". Both times I lost my connection (Three network USB dongle) in every tunnel.
So this is basically a rescue deal for Apple-obsessed fashion victims...
"Bought one of those crappy laptops without a keyboard? Feel inferior no more!"
It's like buying a roof and doors for a quad bike.
Crashes SR-Ware Iron v18 when you close the tab after playing. Also bad lag (on a fast Ultrabook).
For the rootkits alone, they deserve to go under.
Yeah I know - my 2 year BB contract is up in October. I won't buy a locked-down device (Apple), wary of a really small user base (Windows Phone), so I figure I'll just have to get used to Android. At least it'll run Skype chat which is more than my BB will do. I'm not even considering another BB as a serious option - terrible software, terrible support, crappy battery life, frequent reboots needed.
If WordPress site owners were smart enough to keep their installations up to date, this wouldn't be newsworthy. It's like the Darwin awards but for websites...
It shouldn't be too hard to find all 7 Google+ users on the planet and ask for their views...
I wouldn't trust Acer to make a stable ultrabook when even their netbooks turn into bricks from overheating...
Isn't it about time they put Skype onto non-Verizon BlackBerries?
Do Blackberries run Skype yet or should we ignore it?
When I bought my BlackBerry, its battery life was 3 days. One year on, it's more like 12 hours.
...and so, I imagine, are 99% of all other websites.
Is any self-respecting website developer going to make any effort to spoil the user experience with various popups asking the user something they probably don't understand anyway?
Some EU initiatives are worthwhile. This is not one of them.
do so few compacts have optical viewfinders? It seems the only manufacturer that still cares is Canon.
Like some earlier commenters, a "proper" viewfinder is number 1 on my "must have" list, so this camera, nice though it might be, will never make it onto my shortlist.
Works a treat. That is all.
In the staggeringly unlikely event of someone coming after one of the European sites I run, I'll simply move the hosting to Switzerland.
Obvious troll is obvious.
"Man should abandon hopes of being like God, if he wants to have a relationship with God."
And for those of us who have absolutely no interest in a relationship with a character from fiction, we'll just stick to plan A - keep trying to understand the universe a little better, and have some fun along the way.
The Nissan Leaf, for.....
Ugliest back end
Most dirt-prone interior
Most counter-intuitive instrument panel
Being far too heavy to be genuinely tree-loving (the power has to be generated *somewhere*)
That is all.
I wonder if the Chrome results include Iron (the white-label version of Chrome that doesn't talk to Google).
I've been using Iron for ages - I find it consistently faster than Firefox (both starting up and loading pages), and I love the built-in DOM tools that mean I don't have to install Firebug.
