Minecraft Creator Halts Plans For Oculus Version Following Facebook Acquisition
The companies you work with say a lot about your priorities. I think it's fair to send a message to Oculus that a cash grab with a company with completely different models and motivations does not speak well of their priorities.
Obamacare Software Glitch Will Limit Penalties Charged To Smokers
Oh I don't know... Geordi was always able to whip up a holodeck program on a moment's notice in every episode I watched.
FiOS User Finds Limit of 'Unlimited' Data Plan: 77 TB/Month
There's a big difference between sporadically using high amounts of data and continually using high amounts of data.
When Your Data Absolutely, Positively has to be Destroyed (Video)
No, no, no. When it absolutely has to be destroyed, you use thermite.
Digg Hints Its Replacement For Google Reader Will Include Social Media Content
Why are you posting this on Slashdot?
In Wake of Poor Reviews, Amazon Yanks SimCity Download
The problem will be if they simply see the failure as not having enough server infrastructure to handle the load as opposed to seeing the whole online DRM model as being a bad idea.
FCC To Allow Cable Companies To Encrypt Over-the-Air Channels
Works even better because the "OTA" basic Comcast isn't HD.
You need a CableCard, but you can get OTA channels in HD with basic Comcast service... although my understanding is there may be differences in some regions.
Google Docs Ditching Old Microsoft Export Formats On Oct. 1
That is so not true. Gnome?
Also, I challenge that never removing features is a good thing. One man's feature is another man's cruft.
Tesla Reveals Charging Station Sites In 3 US States
Don't bother. Some people will just keep screaming that electric will never work.
Don't confuse electric with batteries. I love the idea of electric, but I don't think (current, at least) batteries are the way to get there. IMO, history will show more negatives than positives with battery-powered cars.
The Long Death of Fat Clients
Yes, exactly. That article is just a load of utter BS. For "exhibit A" I give you an article from half an hour earlier. Think clients are extremely hot right now in mobile apps! Use the right tool for the job. Sometimes that's a thin client, sometimes it's thick. Stop trying to tell me that one or the other is dead. Neither will be anytime soon.
Intel Releases Sandy Bridge-based Xeon E5 Series
Oh, come on. Why mod this down? This is comically pointing out the biggest problem with Mac Pros: the absolutely ridiculous price tag. When you can build a Hackintosh with twice the power for less than half the starting price of the Mac Pro line, there's something very wrong.
My Mac Pro wish is for a line refresh with a major price cut.
Apple WWDC: iOS 5, Lion, iCloud
$30. It's tied to your Apple Store account, just like other App Store purchases.
Glen Beck Warns Viewers Not To Use Google
There are also people that still believe the earth is flat and we're not talking about them. The earth has crazies... why care what they say? Ignore him and he will go away.
Oracle To Invest In Sun Hardware, Cut Sun Staff
GCJ really fulfills an entirely different purpose (compilation of Java to native binaries). If you're looking for an open source alternative, you could look at IcedTea, however Java is open source now so you could just use the original.
How do you back up your NAS?
I'd suggest looking at CrashPlan. I started using it over Mozy/Carbonite because it will backup remote drives.
Nielsen Recommends Not Masking Passwords
I *often* type passwords in with people looking over my shoulder at work. I see their point and maybe it could be a system-wide setting... but it's valuable. One of the biggest problems with doing this is that people use the same passwords so often. So, if one is compromised, many will be... and some may be important.
Apple's WWDC Unveils iPhone 3.0, OpenCL, Laptop Updates, and More
The flash drive. The intention is to avoid someone cracking open your phone and reading the data without having to know your passcode.
Java's new G1 collector not paid-for after all
I suspect it was more that no one paid attention to (or didn't feel enough will to fight against) how the lawyers phrased things until the community cried foul. The message from Sun folks was pretty consistent: the intent was to stress that it isn't ready for production.
Sun Releases JavaFX
JavaFX is already built to run on J2ME. There's a good interview on The Java Posse this week where they mention that.
iTunes On OS X Finally Has Competition
Clearly you don't understand the parent poster (or are not really responding to it). "Folder actions" are an automatic way to run scripts (which in this case could add the music to iTunes).
iTunes does not impose a directory structure or location on you, if you choose to have it not automatically structure things for you. So, it really doesn't matter what your music is or where you got it... indie or otherwise. :-)
Discounting folder actions, if adding a file to the iTunes library meant more than dragging file(s)/folder(s) on the iTunes window, I would sympathize more.
But, no. There are no non-visualization plugins that I'm aware of. It hasn't been a problem for me, but I can think of scenarios where they might be nice.
