Apple Blocks iOS Apps Using Dropbox SDK

EraserMouseMan Re:This is why I don't publish an app (356 comments)

Good for you. Apple was hoping everyone will think iOS apps are the real Web 2.0. "There's an app for that?" I'd rather write a website that anyone on any platform can use.

Apple Blocks iOS Apps Using Dropbox SDK

EraserMouseMan Re:How dare they... (356 comments)

Apple makes you follow the rules they come up with too; not just the app developers. I sure hope you weren't fond of Dropbox.

Why People Don't Live Past 114

EraserMouseMan Re:The oldest person lived to 122. (916 comments)

You're just trying to obstruct science and medicine. Don't let that fact get in the way of an insightful /. post. Hey guys, don't get distracted, back to talking about 114. Frankly we should be ashamed of letting anyone live that long. Humans are a disease. They should all be killed on sight so our planet doesn't get destroyed by those greedy parasites.

The iPhone Is a Nightmare For Carriers

EraserMouseMan Re:Nightmare? (438 comments)

They jumped at the chance? When Apple's contract with AT&T was over it was quite a while longer before the iPhone was available at Verizon. Even longer for the other carriers.

Ron Paul Suggests Axing 5 U.S. Federal Departments (and Budgets)

EraserMouseMan Re:I like his IRS plan! (2247 comments)

Paul's plans would surely mean we need fewer politicians in Washington DC. Correct, the self-serving politicians in DC would not be in favor of that.

Ron Paul Suggests Axing 5 U.S. Federal Departments (and Budgets)

EraserMouseMan Re:I like his IRS plan! (2247 comments)

Yes. Proof of this is California. They don't wait around for the Federal level to solve their problems. Neither should any other state. These agencies should be on the State level not the Federal level. This implies that some states will not need some of these agencies. Which is great.

Amazon Bypassing Publishers By Signing Authors Directly

EraserMouseMan Re:Amazon is just another publisher. (461 comments)

People posed the same question back when Apple let artists publish music directly to iTunes. Last time I checked Apple didn't exactly become the only game in town. Amazon is not not in the publishing biz anymore than Apple is in the music biz. Amazon and Apple just want to sell you cool electronic gadgets.

Healthcare Law Appealed To Supreme Court

EraserMouseMan Re:What other products (1019 comments)

Americans think "freedom" is the freedom from the responsibility to take care of your parents when they get up in age. The freedom from the responsibility to earn money to put your kids through school. The freedom from the fiscal discipline and planning and hard work required to have a stream of income to support you in retirement.

The list goes on pretty considerably.

Not paying tax is the same as stealing from your fellow man? So basically most ultra rich and all of the the poor people are stealing from the middle class.

Apple Patents Cutting 3.5mm Jack in Half

EraserMouseMan Re:I'm confused (369 comments)

We all know Jobs has a magnetic plug fetish. Jobs managed to get a bunch of nerds having a conversation about female holes getting plugged with magnetic cut-off jacks. He is probably enjoying reading this entire thread right now on his iPhone 6 and practically having an igasam.

iPhone Reportedly Coming To China This Fall

EraserMouseMan Re:Good Plan (96 comments)

Angry Jobs maybe. He's pissed that China just leaked that they are in talks with Apple. Not even the Chinese government are permitted to speak of secret Apple deals in the works.

EraserMouseMan EraserMouseMan writes  |  more than 6 years ago

EraserMouseMan (847479) writes "WindRiver has been chosen by Honeywell to develop a Linux-based solution to run on top of Honeywell's next-generation Dependable Multiprocessor for spacecraft.

"Any material put into space is subject to variable accelerations, mechanical shock and vibration, harsh vacuum conditions, extreme temperatures, and often, intense particle and electromagnetic radiation. Wind River Platform for Network Equipment, Linux Edition, running in conjunction with GoAhead SelfReliant Software, which provides high availability middleware, and Honeywell''s Dependable Multiprocessing Middleware on Extreme Engineering Solutions'' XPedite6031 boards, will support the demonstration of high availability and high reliability operation for the ST8 Dependable Multiprocessor experiment."

The relevancy and robustness of Linux is being recognized by the biggest players in industry for their mission critical needs. Is Linux finally being recognized as suitable for everything from putting men on Mars to defending our country?"
