Apple Says "No" To Releasing New Dock Connector Specs

debilo Re:Putting words in Apples mouth (393 comments)

Given the fact that nobody has a fucking clue of what's in the video

What do you mean? The video clearly shows two devices side by side, the current iPhone and, allegedly, the new one.

It doesn't say anything about a future Apple product or connector though.

Have you actually watched the clip? It shows the new device from all angles, including the bottom of the device, revealing a much smaller, thinner connector. This is in line with rumors previously leaked. I don't know if it's the real deal, but device info gets leaked pre-release all the time, so I don't feel the need to get all tinfoily.

Apple Says "No" To Releasing New Dock Connector Specs

debilo Re:Putting words in Apples mouth (393 comments)

The new connector itself is pure rumor.

Assuming this video is authentic, a side by side comparison does hint at a new, much smaller connector.

MplayerX Leaving Mac App Store

debilo Re:Audio sync bug (225 comments)

It actually increases. There is no lag at the beginning but it becomes noticeable after awhile, particularly after seek events.It gradually gets worse.

MplayerX Leaving Mac App Store

debilo Audio sync bug (225 comments)

Unfortunately, MplayerX is unusable at its current state for a significant number of users because of this issue that has been open and unaddressed for months. The lag is unbearable and keeps me from switching from VLC. I would like to do so because MplayerX' killer feature, remembering the play position, is missing from VLC even though it has been requested by its userbase for years.

Windows Drains MacBook's Battery; Who's To Blame?

debilo Windows 7 vs. XP (396 comments)

I have a slightly dated Macbook with an integrated Intel graphics chips. Has anyone with similar specs tried to run Windows 7 on it? If so, how does it stack up against XP in terms of performance and responsiveness, and how does Windows 7 fare in a VMware session?

KDE 4.0 Is Out

debilo Re:Configurable? (165 comments)

Maybe you should get work done instead of masturbating with your desktop environment. Other than changing the background image and window color scheme, how much more diddling do you need ?
Ah, a GNOME user!

debilo writes "ONLamp.com is featuring a lengthy interview with Charles M. Hannum, to Slashdotters probably best known for his wake-up call aptly titled The Future of NetBSD that generated a rather vocal discussion. In his interview, Charles speaks about his role in and the beginning of The NetBSD Project, shares his thoughts on software licenses, discusses the popularity of Linux and its development model, and again addresses the problems that NetBSD is facing. Some notable quotes include: 'If I were doing it again, I might very well switch to the LGPL. I'll just note that it didn't exist at the time.' and 'There was a lot of FUD around this issue — some of it from Linus, actually — and it did cause us some problems.'"

debilo writes "In a lengthy email sent to NetBSD's, FreeBSD's and OpenBSD's mailing lists, Charles Hannum (past founder, developer, president and director of The NetBSD Project and The NetBSD Foundation) laments the, in his eyes, currently sad state of NetBSD: "The NetBSD Project has stagnated to the point of irrelevance. It has gotten to the point that being associated with the project is often more of a liability than an asset." Among a host of problems, he especially regrets the lack of the same strong leadership that can be found in the Linux community and offers his thoughts on suitable remedies."
