Apple Wins Patent For "iWallet"

MosX Re:Great..... (176 comments)

Losing this would generally be safer than using your wallet (when it comes to someone less than honorable finding it) if you have a decent pin/passcode on your phone.

Microsoft Launches Windows 8 Consumer Preview

MosX Re:Lovely and Intuitive? (500 comments)

You don't have to wait for the desktop to load. Apparently Metro and the classic desktop load at the same time and are always there.

Microsoft Launches Windows 8 Consumer Preview

MosX Re:My desktop is not a tablet. (500 comments)

You know, I'm not so sure about this. Do you have a source? I know you can go into a 'classic' Windows desktop mode, but from all the videos it looks like it behaves more like an application (meaning certain Metro style 'Windows' or panes or whatever can pop up OVER the Windows desktop mode). People keep saying you can just stay in this classic Windows desktop mode, but I don't know if that's the same thing as disabling the Metro interface.

Apple's Secret Weapon To Win the Tablet Wars

MosX Re:Use cases? (716 comments)

It's for consuming things. Books, TV shows, movies, music, web pages, etc on the go. Not that hard to understand.

MosX Re:html5 (129 comments)

The canvas tag is a part of the HTML5 spec. So it is an HTML5 application.

Mozilla Posts File Containing Registered User Data

MosX Re:Kudos to Mozilla (154 comments)

They didn't just say sorry. They informed users and tried to fix the problem. That's more than a lot of companies would bother doing in this case.

Why don't you just incorporate the first couple of letters of the site used into the password?

Stallman Worried About Chrome OS

MosX Re:"Progress" (393 comments)

The progress is having your data accessible from any computer. The example given in one of the Chrome OS promotional videos was having your machine break and picking up a new one, logging in, and continuing your work like nothing happened.

Google Wave Out of Beta

MosX Re:So why should I care? (255 comments)

Just like there are advantages to email over postal mail (speed, ability to easily send to multiple people, etc), there are advantages to Wave over email (the ability to see what the others are saying as they type, gadgets and robots that can be embedded into the Wave, etc).

People seem to be dismissing it before actually checking it out just because what they have seems good enough. That kind of thinking is not really good for technology.

Google Wave Out of Beta

MosX Re:So why should I care? (255 comments)

I can already send data through the US Postal Service, so what exactly makes email worth my time?

Google Drafts Cloud Printing Plan For Chrome OS

MosX Not like lpr or Samba (126 comments)

This is supposed to be for devices that don't have ports (small netbooks running ChromeOS or something) and/or use web apps. Google wants everyone to easily be able to print from Google Docs or some other web based software and not have to think about the hardware involved.

There are definitely privacy concerns, but it's not supposed to be like lpr or Samba sharing.

Apple Approves Opera Mini For iPhone

Google Rebuilds Docs Platform

MosX Re:Still sounds shittier than OpenOffice.org. (194 comments)

What makes you say that? I'm sure Google is using something similar to their Google Web Toolkit to write the applications in Java and have the code compiled into JavaScript. When you do that, the fact that the browser is interpreting JavaScript really doesn't matter. All the development and organization is done in a language that IS suited to large-scale application development.
