Is the App Store Broken?
Well, I've done both of those, and the webpage option is far, far easier.
But people always want you to build an app, because apps are cool and websites are old hat.
If you have 100 hours available for testing, you can use static analysis to find 90% of the bugs and spend the rest of your time on the 10% that require deeper insight. Or you can waste 90% of your time being a human compiler, manually cross-checking symbols. Which is going to result in more reliable software?
That assumes that:
- 1) Static analysis will find enough problems to save 90% of your testing time
- 2) There is no additional cost in development time in manually handling all type conversions
And there are a lot of reasons to believe that neither of those are true.
IT Pro Gets Prison Time For Sabotaging Ex-Employer's System
Yes, as was posted just above: Don't talk to police
Or, to summarise, you are not helping the police catch a criminal. You are helping the police convict you of a crime. Whether or not you actually committed the crime is irrelevant.
Ask Slashdot: Which NoSQL Database For New Project?
I thought it was a simple key-value data store.
Not really. The term NoSQL is used to describe a whole bunch of very different models for storing data, each of which has its own pros and cons.
OKCupid Warns Off Mozilla Firefox Users Over Gay Rights
The Left has become fascist in the name of tolerance. Tolerance will be imposed and all who stand in the way will put against the wall.
Yeah, I mean on the one hand we have people who wish to use the power of the state to deny the recognition of relationships of a minority group because it doesn't fit with their own view of the world, and on the other we have people refusing to use a company's product because they disagree with the politics of the CEO.
OKCupid are clearly the fascists here...
Google Android Studio Vs. Eclipse: Which Fits Your Needs?
I am sure the three other people who use Netbeans feel the same way...
I'm sure they do, too, given how much better it is than Eclipse...
HTML5 App For Panasonic TVs Rejected - JQuery Is a "Hack"
So, from that I see that you might not need JQuery if everyone is using an up-to-date version of IE (or something that's not IE). Good luck with that.
Why do the worst technologies that are just barely able to solve the problem always make it? Is the developer community collectively really this stupid? I fear it is...
Because the people who spend their time worrying about which is the theoretically superior solution rarely come up with a practically useful solution.
Ask Slashdot: How Do You Choose Frameworks That Will Survive?
Flex was Java on the server side, so apparently just not using PHP didn't save the OP.
Millions At Risk From Critical Vulnerabilities From WordPress Plugins
But it's 2013 now and in my opinion the language should have long been fixed.
You should probably read this, then
MySQL Man Pages Silently Relicensed Away From GPL
No, MySQL has always required copyright assignment for stuff to be included.
Congressional Committee Casts a Harsh Eye On Vaccination Science
It's true. These socialised health care systems have a horrible tendency to not fund vital drugs like this, just because the clinical evidence shows they don't work.
Apple Pays Only 2% Corporate Tax Outside US
You're right! We should all stop buying Apple products because of their tax evasion. Anything else would be blatant fanboy-ism, probably caused by some sort of reality distortion field.
Now I just have to decide which of the many technology companies who gladly pay their fair share of taxes to choose from...
Book Review: Drupal For Designers
If you seriously couldn't work out how to produce the equivalent of a Wordpress site using Drupal in six months then - and I hate to be the one to break this to you - I don't think Drupal was the problem.
MIT Grad To Make Digital "SixthSense" Open Source
I don't see how you can have a sense of acceleration. Perhaps change of acceleration....but acceleration? Categorically NO.
We orbit the sun, but i wager you have no sense of angular acceleration about the sun. The other senses are persistent.
And, by the same logic, we cannot possibly see cars as we cannot see paramecium.

Adobe Photoshop CS4 Will Be 64-Bit For Windows Only
Now Windows has ~90% of the market place and Apple has ~6%. If you were Adobe and getting to 64 bit on Apple required a lot more work in return access to far less of the market place, wouldn't you be tempted to tell people to use Bootcamp if they want to use the 64 bit version? Now I know Adobe will do the work at least this time, but don't you think decisions like this may cause other vendors to reconsider keeping their Mac ports going?
Those are the numbers for the general computer suing install base. If you're considering the numbers for paying photoshop users, all of a sudden, that Aplle numbert gets much, much higher. Are you sure it's not worth it?
