moberry At least... (108 comments)

Well, at least it wasn't a patent for a linked-list. Oh wait, that's number: 7028023.

Hard Truths About HTML5

moberry Re:On no. 1 & 3: Never trust the client (265 comments)

I try to work my web-apps in the MVC style -- or at least the "VC" style. The browser is the view, the only thing it gets sent is data to display. It is fairly simple to through a debugger up and see exactly how the server API works, but it's also fairly simple to ensure your API is only servicing valid requests and all data is being validdated/escaped/etc.

GameStop To Build Its Own Gaming Tablet?

moberry Internet (53 comments)

It's a legitimate idea. Video games will go the way of the DVD as well and be streamed over the internet. Business models will need to adapt.

Book Review: Android User Interface Development

moberry Re:Your first paragraph killed my interest (111 comments)

I'm getting more and more interested in Android -- especially as the newly redesigned XCode 4 is the worst IDE I've ever used -- but I am not going to read a review by someone who finds Obj-C a significant effort to learn from Java. That's a sign that you're a code monkey and not someone who has anything close to a deep understanding of programming; moving in either direction between Java and Obj-C is one of the dead-simplest transitions amongst distinct programming languages.

The concepts are virtually the same -- ok, exactly the same -- but the syntax of Objective-C, namely "message passing", took me some getting used to.

AT&T To Introduce Broadband Caps

moberry "Cloud" (538 comments)

Interesting way things are going. Internet companies are slowly forcing us to host everything we "own" in the "cloud", while ISP's are slowly enforcing usage caps. At some point we won't have enough bandwidth to bandwidth to access anything.

First Look At Chrome 10

moberry Version 10 (206 comments)

I remember installing Chrome when it first came out and them almost immediately uninstalling it. Either it or Symantec EP had a bug, and the browser window would immediately crash. 9 versions later... these guys have made an absolutely incredible product. I simply don't know what I'd do without my bookmark sync. Their app store needs some work, though, right now it's more of a bookmark store.
