Kodachrome Takes Its Final Bow Today

I'd keep them in the freezer. If the person who purchased the K-Lab figures out how to process it, maybe it will still be of use.

Platform Independent C++ OS Library?

d235j Re:Qt (310 comments)

Simple: They post source code at opensource.apple.com and since they keep away from LGPL 3, they can use signing to, in effect, do "tivoization." And the iPhone and apps have dynamically linked libraries.

How Apple's App Review Is Sabotaging the iPhone

d235j Re:And yet... (509 comments)

Apple has tools like otool and nm which can detect what's going on. class-dump can output headers if it's given an Obj-C binary. I'm not sure what exactly happened, but maybe you attempted to dynamically link the PhoneGap framework instead of statically incorporating it into the main application binary. Such dynamic linking is simply not allowed. However, I could be wrong.

Questioning Mozilla's Plans For HTML5 Video

d235j Re:When bandwidth costs more than MPEG royalties (242 comments)

Unfortunately, Theora still needs twice the bitrate as H.264 to deliver the same quality, even with the "Thusnelda" rewrite of the encoder.

Not really. Thusnelda is noticeably better than H.263 (which is what YouTube used to use) and it's more like a 15% higher bitrate [and that's probably higher than necessary]/

Apple's WWDC Unveils iPhone 3.0, OpenCL, Laptop Updates, and More

d235j Re:No OpenGL ES 2.0 (770 comments)

apparently you weren't paying attention to the keynote, because there IS OpenGL ES 2.0 support in the iPhone 3GS.

d235j Re:How does the GS look to game devs? (770 comments)

Any iphone devs have any idea how the new graphics chipset might affect things? Are there going to be GS-specific graphics API calls?

Also I wonder if we'll see 3gs-only games? Obviously it would unwise to do so from a sales perspective, but I wonder if apple will even allow such a thing.

Yes, the GS has OpenGL ES 2.0, which is not backwards compatible with OpenGL ES 1.1. So we'll probably see some GS-only games.

Directory Service Implementation From Scratch?

d235j Re:My choices (149 comments)

Yes, I agree that RHDS/FDS aka. 389 directory server (directory.fedoraproject.org) is probably the way to go.
