Google Hangouts Gets Google Voice Integration And Free VoIP Calls

jcfandino Re:Hangouts is, in turn, part of plus, right? (162 comments)

I use the hangouts app and it doesn't allow me to send pictures because I don't have a google plus account.
I wouldn't be suprised if the Voice features were restricted as well.

Blender Foundation Video Taken Down On YouTube For Copyright Violation

jcfandino Re:It's called Slander of Title (306 comments)

I think it'd be adding fuel to the fire.
Lawyers would be the only benefited by that, but it's always nice to see the bully beaten at his own game.

Mikhail Kalashnikov: Inventor of AK-47 Dies At 94

jcfandino Re:rant from a gun nut (283 comments)

I would suggest that the only constitutionally protected reason for a civilian to own a gun should be to be capable of mounting a militia that could defend against a corrupt government. That would clearly include guns like an AK.

The right to bear arms in my opinion has nothing to do with hunting and target shooting...

Yeah!, why bother voting?.

The Mobile App Design Tail Wags the Desktop Software Design Dog

jcfandino Re:Honestly.... (183 comments)

Thinking about the computers on the 80s. Computers at that era booted right into BASIC interpreter.
Kids had magazines with programs on source code, and many of those kids probably learned something useful, besides just paying games.
Nowadays devices rarely come with any language interpreter at all (batch?).
Linux does, but you're probably an advanced user and already introduced in the CS universe.
I don't much see probable that a kid with a pc or mobile device steps on a programming language by chance.

The Mobile App Design Tail Wags the Desktop Software Design Dog

jcfandino Re:Honestly.... (183 comments)

If you handed me one in 1980, I would have believed you were a time traveler or an alien.

And you would have been right about the first thing.
I don't know the GP about the second thing, though.

Change the ThinkPad and It Will Die

jcfandino Anyone tried the X1 Carbon? (347 comments)

I haven't, but it surely look like crap. Supposedly the top of the line model, but
The keyboard is all wrong, their chiclets may not be that bad but the layout is awful.
And what about the display? I shines like glass, I don't want to see my face on the display, I'm not a vampire!
It's like they made this model to experiment introducing changes that will make the thinkpad just like a macbook with no rounded corners, I hope nobody buys it because I don't want future thinkpads to be cheap apple clones.

A while ago they introduced some small and well studied design changes (T400 keyboard, new touchpad). But, WTF is this? Find out why people choose your computers and improve it, don't fuck it.
