Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

jisom Mobile (2219 comments)

I just like to say that the beta loads extremely better than classic. Classic is just terrible on my iPad. I understand that the beta has some rough spots, text looks terrible on linux Firefox for instance, but with the ever changing device choices, change is needed.

10,000 Commits To an Open-source Project

jisom Re:ffmpeg et al (101 comments)

i'm sure the maintainers of projects like ffmpeg (now libav) and x264 would be getting up there.

libav is actually a fork of ffmpeg, not a rename. ffmpeg is still active.

Smartphones For Text SSH Use Re-Revisited

jisom Re:I use iSSH almost everyday... (359 comments)

I use it on my iPad. both the iPhone 4G and iPad support Bluetooth keyboards and keypads. Thinkgeek sells one for the iphone, the PS3 bluetooth keypad works with my iPad. So this is more a question of apps than the phones themselves.
