Dart 1.0 Released

CyDharttha Re:Burned by GWT (121 comments)

GWT has been open sourced. I am hopeful that this can only be a good thing. There is still at least as much activity on the project as when it was not open source. The 2.6.0 RC1 release notes look great. Just recently a Google employee was working on a bug I was tracking. And there's the GWT Create conference coming up.

I was worried about GWT when I saw Dart coming up and getting attention, because I've enjoyed writing apps in GWT, and would like it to continue to be an option when we're scoping new projects. So far what I'm seeing from the new status of the project is helping to keep my confidence.

Firefox 3.6 Support Ends April 2012

CyDharttha Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (187 comments)

I wonder what version Ubuntu 10.04 LTS will move to? It's still on FF 3.6. There's just over a year of support left for the desktop LTS version.

Google Releases Chrome 12

CyDharttha Google Gears (188 comments)

They removed Gears from this release. I have an app that has a full offline mode and relies on Gears; as a band-aid fix yesterday I had to downgrade a user to Chrome 11 that had automatically updated. I know, I need to get with the times and port my code to HTML 5. Even more so, as Gears only supports Firefox up to 3.6, and IE up to 8.

Is YouTube Launching a Netflix Competitor?

CyDharttha Re:Didn't think I'd champion Silverlight... (162 comments)

Hulu's service detects bandwidth and will auto-adjust the video quality while a video is playing. I've seen it go from 720p to 288p, then to 480p, as the poor connection I was on fluctuated. It was a seamless experience. The absence of Silverlight is the exact reason I opened this story. Unfortunately, I don't have the option to use Silverlight on my devices. I'd be a Netflix subscriber if I could. I've seen plenty of comments above (especially the per movie rental cost) that are good reasons to not sign up for this, but not using Silverlight is definitely not one of them, in my opinion.

Apple Bans Android Magazine App From App Store

CyDharttha Re:Apple getting desperate? (574 comments)

You just helped me realize, I think it's funny that someone creates an app for an online publication, when a website would do just as well. The web is a fine publishing platform. I've yet to get caught up in the whole 'app' fad, though. The most used apps on my phone are the ones it came with (mail, calendar, web, navigation, etc).

Woz Says Android Will Dominate

CyDharttha Re:Gaming (416 comments)

Apple has a substantial lead?

(Note: the title of the first article is misleading; according to the article, Apple as a single hardware vendor is in the lead, but Android as an OS has twice the market share as iOS)

Woz Says Android Will Dominate

CyDharttha Re:Maybe (416 comments)

I think some of those phones still on 1.6 don't have the hardware features to support 2.0; navigation is a good example. Apps that rely on those hardware features would be useless anyways. Maybe not the only reason, but it is one as far as I know.

As one example, I can still install UT2004 on Ubuntu 10.04 by simply running the provided installer executable.
