Ha! I'm guessing you're saying that you're on Android - what OS version, and what version of Chrome? Thanks! We test against the latest versions of Chrome (from the Store, not default packaged browser). What exactly are you seeing?

We really recommend you download the Chrome browser or the latest FF (as recommended below). Some of the default Android browsers are horribly out-of-date.

Thanks for the feedback - we found an issue with localStorage not playing well across our subdomains (tech.slashdot.org, apache...,etc). We're pushing a fix that should clear this up. And thanks for the tip with store.js :)

beeudoublez Re:No Go on Opera Mini (384 comments)

The mobile site isn't compatible with Opera Mini, as the upstream server munges our JS. We really recommend you use the Chrome browser straight from Google.

Hey there, you should only see the popup once, and we store a local reminder to save this preference. Do you have local storage or cookies disabled?

Hagfish Slime Could Make Super-Strong Clothes

beeudoublez Re:Marketing Hurdle of the Century (82 comments)

Well, the Chilean Sea Bass was originally called the Patagonian Toothfish, and Mahi was originally called Dolphinfish.

I think they'll work something out.

Slashdot Mobile: Now For Tablets As Well As Phones

beeudoublez Re:The food is terrible and the portions are small (123 comments)

Hey there. The mobile flow is designed so that anything you interact with that requires sign in - will return you back to you where you started. Are you seeing an area where you're performing a signed-in action, and after you sign in, you're not being returned to the starting point?

Slashdot Mobile: Now For Tablets As Well As Phones

beeudoublez Re:looks good after.... (123 comments)

This is good feedback, thanks. It's not that the site won't work (it is standards-compliant), it's that we have a finite amount of devices to test with, and those are on the 'supported' list. Once we go live, I'll remove this screen.

Slashdot Mobile: Now For Tablets As Well As Phones

beeudoublez Re:Question (123 comments)

This will be cleaned up in the V1 version. Right now, the mobile sites are siloed from the full site (m.slashdot.org, mbeta.slashdot.org).

In the future, if you're coming from a mobile device, we'll show you the mobile version. BUT you'll always be able to switch to the full site if you prefer.

One of the upcoming features is being able to set your comment browsing level. The comment slider doesn't work too well for mobile so it needs some thought.

Researchers find that some cancer apps aren't delivering reliable results

beeudoublez beeudoublez writes  |  about a year ago

beeudoublez writes "Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center examined four apps that use photographs of skin lesions to make assessments and whether they suggest any type of diagnosis or estimate the risk of malignancy.
Testing their sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values, the researchers found that three of the four apps incorrectly classified 30 per cent or more of melanomas as unconcerning."

UW professor researches beer that contradicts previous findings

beeudoublez beeudoublez writes  |  about a year ago

beeudoublez writes "Werner Kaminsky, a crystallographer and UW professor of chemistry, closely studied a molecule called humulones, which is found in bitter beers, and his results contradicted previous findings about the molecule. His findings were published in the scientific journal Angewandte Chemie last week.

Kaminsky’s studies involved identifying the structure of the humulones molecule by using technology called X-ray crystallography. The atoms diffract the X-ray beams in a way that shows the molecule’s structure. Yet through his research, he discovered something else. Previous research hadn’t found handedness and assumed uniformity between the molecules."
