Apple Rips Off Rejected App, Says Wireless Sync Developer
So are you really implying that the idea of wireless syncing never crossed the minds of any Apple engineers or managers until this guy's app was submitted? Or that he figured out some magical trick to make wireless syncing work that Apple's own engineers just hadn't been able to crack yet? Seriously?
The GP post is spot-on. This is all much ado about nothing.
Netflix Signs Deal With Disney-ABC
I went with one of these: http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-media-receivers/wd-tv-live-plus/4505-6739_7-34117510.html
It not only does Netflix, but will also play anything from USB drives and network file shares. It also has access to online stuff like Facebook, YouTube, Pandora, and a handful of others. The only (minor) drawback is no built-in WiFi (though it does support various USB-based WiFi devices).
For the extra geek factor, it's based on Linux, so there are plenty of custom firmwares and add-ons out there to customize it.

Facebook Goes After Greasemonkey Script Developer
FB Purity blocks entire categories of posts: all application posts, 'x became a fan of y' posts, and others.
Facebook's built-in hiding is done on a app-by-app and person-by-person basis. So every stupid new app that comes out has to be hidden individually.

Mac Clone Maker Psystar Files For Bankruptcy
While I wouldn't argue that some people buy Apple machines because they're "stylish", the vast majority of people I know buy them because they are simply more productive using them. My mom and aunts like them because of the iLife apps (iPhoto and iMovie in particular), and me and most of my developer friends like them because of their versatility (what other brand of machine can easily run Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux?).
Not that it really matters, I suppose, but the claims on /. that Apple machines are about style only are getting a bit old by now.

Right, because you live at the end of a dirt road in Chile. It had damn well better be cheap to live there.

... Visual Studio sucks compared to Eclipse when it comes to how user-friendly the tool is.
Do you actually use both on a regular basis?
I've honestly never met someone that does that prefers Eclipse.
I use Visual Studio, XCode, and Eclipse, on a daily basis, and as far as I'm concerned, Visual Studio is just about the only thing Microsoft has ever done right, and beats the hell out of any other IDE I've ever used.
Author's Guild Says Kindle's Text-To-Speech Software Illegal
There's no issue. If I have a contract which allows me to sell frozen burritos, but not ready-to-eat burritos, selling frozen burritos along with a microwave (which turns them into ready-to-eat burritos) doesn't violate the contract.
It seems the GP was actually saying that there is a contract for frozen burritos AND ready-to-eat burritos. And by Amazon selling frozen burritos along with a microwave, they are somehow skirting their contract for selling ready-to-eat burritos. How valid that is, who knows? Something tells me that a judge will know, at some point.
FAA Network Hacked
If the readership and editors of /. can't seem to correctly grasp the difference between 'hacked' and 'cracked', how do we expect the mainstream press to ever come even close to getting it?
Utah Mulls a Database of Bar Customers
I'll never understand why everyone thinks Mormons are crazier than any other religious person. It's still the same zombie Jesus rhetoric.
Because Mormons take that typical zombie Jesus rhetoric, and top it with a healthy dose of good ol' insanity. Golden plates with seer stones? The first man and woman lived in North America? "True" native americans were white? The list goes on and on...
US House Kills Proposed Delay For Digital TV Transition
To fix your analogy, this is like companies loaning you a bumper covered in ads, and now the government is telling them they have to stop offering the old shitty bumpers and offer a different design and you're pissed about buying new mounting brackets for your damn free bumpers claiming that your $3000 car is now useless because of the lack of free bumpers on the market!
Have analogies really gotten this bad around here?
