mnt Re:I guess the BND's backdoor (27 comments)

The BND is very dependend on technologies by other agencies, their capabilities are basic. And the groundwork the CCC did ("don't work for agencies") seems to work, no new blood for BND from german hackers.

mnt Re:too late (74 comments)

If you think FFOS development is bad, I'd hate to see what you think about Android development!

Android development is why i quit my job and moved on to something more sane.

Mozilla Launches Browser Built For Developers

mnt Bad GUI, No sync migration (74 comments)

The GUI is very bad. Black on black, nearly no contrast... I'm back to Pale Moon.

Oh, and why is there no migration path between old sync and new sync? It's just a new authentication, everything under the hood is the same. If i run Pale Moon (old sync) and Firefox (new sync) i cannot have both of them, i'm forced to choose.

Raspberry Pi A+ Details Leaked

mnt Raspi Ripoff (141 comments)

Oh, still has that DSI connector one cannot use because of missing software. And has a CSI connector for those 2$ cameras that are sold for 25$. I thank the Raspi for kicking off the ARM revolution, but now (after four non overclocked pis that died without warning) i simply hate it. I have moved on to boards that have better power filtering, overcurrent protection, tens of gpios more, sdcard interfaces that dont trash your card and work with any card model and all that at the same cost or cheaper.

mnt Calculator and Flashlight need Wifi (88 comments)

That is the result of building an OS where everything is HTML: Many developers don't bother to build installable apps, rely on installable hosted webpages.

Firefox OS Coming To Raspberry Pi

mnt Re:Low power CPU meet bloated pOS (88 comments)

Crippled like... no way to enable the DSI connector? Or only Raspberry Pi cameras able to use the CSI port? Yeah, same thought here.
