Electrical Engineer Unemployment Soars; Software Developers' Rate Drops to 2.2%

mhh91 Re:Reads like a press release (419 comments)

Larry Page is going to drive Google to the ground, IMHO.

Talent is leaving the company because they found themselves being forced to work on a product they weren't passionate about. (Hello, G+!)

So no, I don't think he knows how to be a good CEO like Eric Schmidt who made Google what it is today, which makes him unworthy of both the title and money.

Ask Slashdot: Making JavaScript Tolerable For a Dyed-in-the-Wool C/C++/Java Guy?

mhh91 Javascript: The good parts (575 comments)

I suggest reading this book, it's gotten a lot of good reviews, I've seen a lot of people recommend it to people starting out with JS.

It explains a subset of Javascript that's simple to use, and also the most used in practice.

Ask Slashdot: Which Web Platform Would You Use?

mhh91 Re:Django (519 comments)

I personally think of it as a feature, it prevents you from blindly copy pasting code.

Sure, I had my problems with indentation when I first started learning it, but now I'm used to it, I think of it like curly braces in the C family of languages.

mhh91 BASIC is a horrible language. (783 comments)

Hobbyist programmers don't write BASIC code these days, the question you should be asking is "why can't we put python/ruby on the phone?".

Why Developers Still Prefer iOS To Android

mhh91 Re:Why I only do iOS (614 comments)

Care to elaborate on why Android is an awful platform?

Oh, and Android is NOT a cross platform API, Android apps only work on Android, unless you mean that the SDK and tools are cross platform.

Why would anyone use Apache as a reverse proxy anyway?

I mean, there's nginx, and it runs circles around Apache as far as I know.

Microsoft Has Lost $5.5 Billion On Bing Since 2009

mhh91 Re:It's an investment. (217 comments)

The one good thing about Microsoft is that they tend to stick to what they started. It's not like Google who might just cancel the product you're using the next day.

Yeah, they really stuck to VB6 and silverlight.

Google Buys Motorola for $12.5 Billion

mhh91 mhh91 writes  |  more than 2 years ago

mhh91 (1784516) writes ""Google announced Monday morning that it will acquire Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion.

Motorola is one of 39 manufacturers of handsets that use Google’s Android operating system.

Buying a hardware company is an unusual move for Google. The acquisition, Google said in a statement, “will enable Google to supercharge the Android ecosystem.”

Will this strengthen Google's position in the ongoing patent war with Apple and Microsoft?"
