Nokia and Microsoft Make Smartphone Alliance
Any shares you have in Nokia.
They put an ex-Microsoftie in charge of a consumer electronics company. I'd laugh if it wasn't such a tragedy.
QT will be taken out and shot as soon as possible. Here's how it will happen: Microsoft will offer Nokia a Business Development Agreement which lets Nokia get discounts off the price they pay for operating system licences. The discounts will be related to Nokia doing one of a number of 'entirely voluntary' (hence not illegally coerced) things. Things like enhancing QT in some way to make it compatible with some pointless and unused feature of Windows PhoneOS. After a few of these it will be cheaper to just kill QT.
Then KDE will be screwed.
Any guesses how long Symbian will last?
Quality Concerns For Kingston microSD Cards

Facebook's HipHop Also a PHP Webserver
You're joking right? From the php docs:
>> Return Values
>> The integer value of var on success, or 0 on failure. Empty arrays and objects return 0, non-empty arrays and objects return 1.
I certainly do not use intval ever in inline code - I use my own class method that will throw an exception if I'm trying to take the intval of something which is not the string representation of an integer.
Good God, they could at least have made intval() return FALSE on failure but not 0!!!
