Skype Forcing Mac Users To Upgrade Client

mb1 Re:A clear case of the slows. (250 comments)

Another clear case of the slows is the fucking beach-balling that Skype 5.1.0.935 for Mac does when you type more text into it than your chat window is sized for. 5-8 seconds of beachball to resize the text box, type a line beyond the size of the text box or delete a line back to the size of the existing text box... arrgghh!!

I'd welcome an autoupdate if it fixed that.

Breakthroughs In HTML Audio Via Manipulation With JavaScript

mb1 Re:don't say you weren't warned: (141 comments)

...the problem being that it's in "the future" that all these great things will exist in a way they can be easily and broadly used.

right now it's a messy pile of emerging and aging standards and big corporates at each other about their respective tech-sandpits, so the lowest common denominator often seems to be the winner. Javascript browser API's help things along (they're great) but they can't perform black magic like making everything use some canvas or some video codec or audio implementation or 3d api.

unfortunately, I'm guessing that "the future" will sort out lots of stuff but have all new fights over stuff everyone wants to use right then but has to wait for "the future's future".

don't get me started on "the future's future's future" either :)

Mpeg 7 To Include Per-Frame Content Identification

mb1 Re:modest proposal (273 comments)

Correct - 'Doing Apple' means you've got to be careful not to violate their 'Do Changing Batteries' patent... which they hold but won't license :)

Mpeg 7 To Include Per-Frame Content Identification

mb1 Re:modest proposal (273 comments)

I'm sure looking forward to the future when I'll be prosecuted by the patent and/or trademark holders of both 'Do Nothing' and 'Do Something' for doing something and/or doing nothing at all.

Of course, Apple will offer their 'Doing Apple' to give us all some choice - but at the same time will sue anyone trying to 'Do Nothing' or 'Do Something' and not 'Doing Apple'...

3D HDMI Specification Is Set Free

mb1 Re:3D HDMI Specification Is Set Non-Free (100 comments)

and it is actually quite useless without the rest of the HDMI spec.

Unless you order the Professional Edition Deluxe Diamond Tipped Laser Nanotube 9000XT HDMI Spec Reader Cable available from Monster.

Then you're golden.
