What Open Source Can Learn From Apple

Mork29 It's not about contributers (309 comments)

It's about standards. Apple's UI guidelines are very well written, and very well thought out. When developing your app, you don't need to spend a lot of time thinking about the proper place to put something, because it's generally obvious. This makes it so much more user friendly as a user can pick up on things in a very intuitive way. It also gives a general "feel" to the entire operating system.

When working with Objective-C/Cocoa in XCode, your almost forced to give your app a very Mac like feel to it. The same goes for the iPhone. Everything you'd want in your interface is already pre-built, so everybody's apps have a familiar feel. I know I've heard the exact opposite when developing for something like the Blackberry.

Having more people contribute with no clear guidance will just make things worse.

Mork29 Why Hardware? (45 comments)

This story is in the hardware category, and I'm trying to understand why.... Even if the company is deploying the "cyber-twins" in a hardware solution, it's the software that's innovative here.

Mork29 Re:Is this supposed to be some sort of scandal? (218 comments)

No "state secrets" were lost. If something is "secret", then it's "classified". If it's classified, then it isn't being stored on a system that has access to the internet, directly or indirectly. According to the article, (yes, I read it...) there was some sensative information lost. This is not going to be launch codes or anything that's even remotely that valuable. I'm not saying it's no big deal, I'm saying that it's not nearly as big a deal as you're trying to make it out to be.

Well, I like writing Haikus sometimes. Here it goes. (They're not supposed to be good you know..)

I love my Slashdot
It scratches my nerdy itch
Makes me feal all smart

See, now wasn't that fun. It took me all of about 12 seconds... Now I guess I should actually get back to work... another Haiku someday
