Russian Hacker Selling 1.5M Facebook Accounts

cdgeorge What about FB? (193 comments)

It's pretty clear to me that the hacker actually broke Facebook security and stole bulk data. Question is, what is Facebook doing about it? Shouldn't they be chasing after this in some way? After all, it's their service I'm using ...

cdgeorge Internet money (108 comments)

The reason for not using Android is of course the Android market. Should Intel want some of that internet money, they need to create their own app market. Which they did.

There's no hate, just a matter of time. From http://source.android.com/projects/bluetooth-faq: "Q. When will Java Bluetooth API's be released in an SDK? A. We are not ready to announce a release target for Bluetooth API's. We do understand there is demand for a Bluetooth API, and it is a top priority for the Android Bluetooth team."

Is Apache Or GPL Better For Open-Source Business?

cdgeorge Re:GPL offered protection from competitors (370 comments)

If you're that afraid you'll loose to competition, than you'd better not open source your code. But, really now, suppose that a new business wants to compete with you by using your own code. This means they'll have to 1. Understand the market 2. Hire/Use existing developers to understand the code and be able to create new features 3. Spend a lot of money to create a competitive brand (Hey, this shiny new thingie i've created for you is the best, and you shouldn't go to those guys i've copied from and know what they're doing) 4. Make sure those code better and faster than yours Leaving all this aside, have you ever seen this in action?

WineConf 2005 Sets Deadline for Wine 0.9

cdgeorge Re:I could be out of line... (179 comments)

I guess this is because it's very important to set goals. While the deadline in itself is kind of annoying, one can afford to wait for the perfect software while it has a (better) running version.
