Speculating On What a Microsoft Superphone Might Mean

InterestingFella Re:Easily explainable: Nokia (371 comments)

Outlook is actually good software if you need email + calendar. I really haven't found anything as good. The Bat! sure comes as close and is lightweight as hell, but it just doesn't have the same integration and feel either. It's the best try so far, at least.

If you have something to argue about me points, please do so. Otherwise you're just mindlessly attacking. Try using WP7.

Speculating On What a Microsoft Superphone Might Mean

InterestingFella Re:Easily explainable: Nokia (371 comments)

Honestly, I can't think of anything that would immature about it.. In fact, especially the UI is great once you've tried it. Easily beats Android and even iPhone too.

Also, development on WP7 phones is ridiculously easy, as you point out. I'm more than happy that Nokia finally dropped Symbian, which was a *major* pain in the ass to even set up development environment for. XNA, Silverlight etc make it ridiculously easy to do apps for WP7.

Only bad thing about WP7 is that you can't run apps outside markets as easily as with old Windows Mobile's. It really sucks. But it's something iPhone and Android mandated, so blame is on them.

InterestingFella Easily explainable: Nokia (371 comments)

Nokia has been preparing their Windows Phone 7 line-up. Their Nokia Lumia smart phone has beat sales in many European countries and Australia in December and November, even topping iPhone and every Android phone. It is also a very solid offering. I think both Microsoft and Nokia did the right to go together. Great hardware from Nokia and great software from Microsoft. That combination is pure gold.

Open Source IDE GAMBAS Reaches 3.0

InterestingFella Re:Ever heard of ECLIPSE ???? (137 comments)

Like what? Visual Studio is by far the best IDE there is. It is almost outstandingly powerful and still lightweight with the newest versions. It's nice to work with. Apart from VisualAssist, which is great addon, there's not much there to improve over others. In fact, the assist features of VS is on par with others, VA just takes it step further. Anyone who would use Eclipse over VS just doesn't know what he is doing.

Tensions Over Hormuz Raise Ugly Possibilities For War

InterestingFella Re:Flogging a dead horse much? (969 comments)

Puhleeeze, let go of that fucking Mossadegh!

It was the Cold War, both the US and the USSR conducted thousands of secret operations all over the world. The simple fact that operation Ajax was a viable proposition means Iran wasn't a stable democracy.

Countries like those of Eastern Europe got fucked much harder than Iran, they were invaded militarily and kept in submission for fifty years, yet they are recovering. Why cannot Iran forget Mossadegh? Or, rather, why cannot the childish American leftists forget him?

Seems like your mother never taught you that other persons bad actions does not justify you doing bad things.

Open Source IDE GAMBAS Reaches 3.0

InterestingFella BASIC (137 comments)

It's what I started my programming history with and I still have fond memories of it. Easy enough language that got me interested in programming and provided me instant fun. There never really was any other such comprehensive language with quick-to-see results. Drawing on screen was easy, syntax was easy and reading from input was easy. You got fun things done quickly. As much as some "I'm better than you" geeks like to take a stand about it, BASIC was important part of history.

Tensions Over Hormuz Raise Ugly Possibilities For War

InterestingFella Re:Gee, maybe U.S. shouldn't try to steal oil (969 comments)

Then you probably also understand that it is the US and Europe that uses most of the resources on our planet. If you want to save as much lives as you can while preventing overpopulation, we westerners should be first ones to go. People from other places on Earth use far fewer resources per one person than we do.

EA, Nintendo, Sony Quietly Withdraw SOPA Support

InterestingFella Re:Anonymous Threatened Sony (204 comments)

You really think Anonymous played any role in it? If anything it only made Sony more pro-establishment. You're idiot, eldavojohn.

I know you're a parent, and a grandparent, and hence why I used such example. It just seems like you're more easy at putting Iranians/Iraqis at that position and forgetting that they're people just like you. All with their family, history, loved ones and children.

Before the iPhone, Apple's Stunning Phone From 1983

InterestingFella Re:Not quite (152 comments)

What did he give me? He actually inspired me a lot when I was kid and reading his book. He had quite interesting stuff to said about technology and how it's going to be in the future. Apart from that, he also gave me QBasic and Visual Basic which were the first programming languages I learned and used. Indirectly, he also influenced countless of things. I remember when I was learning about game programming, AI, 3D with DirectX and other things as 10-11 years old and it was a fascinating subject. I literally spent my summer holidays reading about those. Coding on days, reading in bed and while on travel. And overally, billions of people use the OS he created. I bet you do too.

You may dislike him, sure. But you can't say he hasn't given anything. He is probably the most influential guy in the history of PC's, either directly or indirectly.

Arise SIR Jonathan Ive

Want to see "consumers"?? http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/photos/

Wow, you take a mockery said and somehow establish that there's connection with every non-geek? That's quite low just to establish your own "superiority" to other people.

Also wrong. Other programs can parse serialized python objects, so long as those programs are also Python programs

So, in practical sense, again none.

What would you think if your kids died and someone told you it was because of overpopulation? Would that make their dead ok? That their dead supported world not getting overpopulated? Just think a little bit before writing stupid shit.
