Mozilla Rolls Out Sponsored Tiles To Firefox Nightly's New Tab Page

speps Re:A sad thing (171 comments)

My own hypothesis is that Google told them they would stop paying them (you know, millions of dollars) some years from now. Until then, they have to find ways to monetize the shit out Firefox and their other projects... It would explain a LOT of what happened in the last few years.

Ask Slashdot: It's 2014 -- Which New Technologies Should I Learn?

speps C++11 (387 comments)

I think given the momentum C++ has right now (for better or worse, I can't say yet) you should try to learn C++11 and all the new tricks that come with it. It's a pretty different experience from C and C++98 in my opinion. Watch this for a nice roadmap and insights : http://channel9.msdn.com/Event...

speps Battery Changing Stations (311 comments)

The mile range is not important, we need to change the way we charge and make stations where batteries are charged, you come and take one charged to replace the used one in your car and you can go as quick as before. Maybe even do an incentive to promote coming with the battery at 1% instead of 50% (if these batteries don't handle a charge from 50% well).

Wikipedia Chooses Lua As Its New Template Language

speps Re:Raw- or OOP-base Lua? (145 comments)

After integrating Ruby into the SciTE editor, I can say that Ruby's biggest drawback is it's complete lack (at least when I tried it, maybe not now with another VM) of simple C embedding like Lua does. It was pain to embed but it worked somehow, it was not as clean as SciTE's Lua integration though.

New Raspberry Pi Model B+ Leaked by Mistake

speps speps writes  |  about 6 months ago

speps (1108625) writes "Hack A Day got news of Element14 of a new model of Raspberry Pi named "B+". This new model is rumored to have 2 additional USB ports, MicroSD, A/V combined into jack port and maybe a new chipset (mentioned in the comments and we can see a Samsung chip in the pictures).

Comments on the official forums seem to have been removed without any explanation. Also the specsheet has leaked from some manufacturers but it might not reflect the exact specs."
