Studying the Slow Decay of a Laptop Battery For an Entire Year
Did you ever think about the fact that Macbook air doesn't give you the option to replace the battery (yourself) and this might be a nice moneymaker for apple?
Google Apps Suffering Partial Outage
In the mean time...I'm working in my desktop machine, saving to my own disk (with automatic backup to my server AND my machine at work) and getting my mail into my own server not depending one ounce on any cloud services. Life is good.

Larry Page Issues Public Update On Google Changes
And more... I'll tell you a thing Larry. Stop trying to stick G+ up our ...
Yesterday I was checking my AdSense account. On the first page I got a "reminder" this BIG: Have you already gotten a G+ account? That will help you maximize your ads profits, blah blah... Yes Larry I already HAVE one G+ account (that I have used once or twice to just check it out and see what its greatness is). Didn't see the greatness anywhere.
Oh and stop bothering me with it on my Analytics account as well.

New Qt Based Desktop Environment
And say what you want about Windows: Windows interface is to this moment unsurpassed in it's functionality and simplicity (at leat the classical 95/2000 on which KDE is based). OSXs finder with all it's annoyances and ,,so shiny/no content,, is, unfortunately gaining terrain with copycats (god save us).

What's Keeping You On Windows?
It's cool and hip here on slashdot to suppose that everyone is looking for solutions to leave Windows and that it can't be possible to like it. Well, I like Windows (Windows 7 is almost godly perfect for me), I hate OSX with a passion but unfortunately I need to use it at work. I have 3 Linux servers that I use because of price reasons. On the desktop, I don't look for anything else at the moment. I like the "Windows 7 experience": it's stable, fast, reliable, most software runs on it. So, sue me.

Ask Slashdot: Best Way To Leave My Router Open?
Your router != you but YOU have the responsibility for what happenings behind **your** router. This is the kind of /. romanticism that is so hard to kill, unfortunately...

DX11 Coming To Linux (But Not XP)
Sure, Sherlock. What is next? Maybe MS will start a nuclear war to destroy the evil Linux empire? How can people just vomit words just when they here the word Microsoft? Ignorance? Perhaps.
MS cannot change DX calls. DX is implemented atop of COM technology wich means that what is done is done. The interface cannot be changed. If changed, it will then be a new version, call it DX13 , whatever... but the current version interfaces cannot be changed. Whatever, here is the word again: Microsoft... keep vomiting words without thinking.
