Broadcast Industry Wades In On Dish Network's Hopper

paulschreiber Old news (194 comments)

My parents' VCR (yes, VHS!) had this in the early 1990s. I believe early ReplayTV models also had it. I don't understand why it's not standard in more devices or why it's so controversial (still).

Best Open Source Genealogy Software?

paulschreiber GenerationX, Mac OS X genealogy software (292 comments)

A month ago, I found GenerationX, an open source Mac OS X GEDCOM editor. (GEDCOM is a standard genealogy file format.) Unfortunately, the version I found was very old. It was PowerPC-only and crashed on launch on Snow Leopard.

I took the source on SorceForge, fixed many of the compiler and static analyzer warnings and removed the expiry code.

You can find my fork on github:

Be careful — this is still beta quality.

Will Steve Ballmer Speak At WWDC Keynote?

There is no way Apple will let you develop for the iPhone OS using MS' developer toolchain. No way whatsoever. I'll bet Trip Chowdrey $500 right now this doesn't happen.
