Ask Slashdot: Why Are We Still Writing Text-Based Code?

youn what do you mean no visual? (876 comments)

_ gui interfaces
_ gui db tools
_ gui class visualization
_ auto complete
_ some uml tools allow you to prototype classes.

Programming can be as visual as you want it to be. no, this is not fully visual because it does not make sense - it is not because you have a "smart phone" that computers are smart enough yet :)

my personal question is why are most language still ascii and resort to external library for i18n strings

Google Glass Making Its Way Into Operating Rooms

youn Re:combine with Clippy for even more fun (120 comments)

reminds me of a cartoon where the doctor goes "nurse, could you please go to surgery.com and click the I am lost button"... the variation is you can ask google glass directly.... "ok google, help out, I am completely lost here" :)

FiOS User Finds Limit of 'Unlimited' Data Plan: 77 TB/Month

youn Re:While I hate someone advertising "Unlimited" (573 comments)

I agree, I personally don't like "unlimited" advertisings for many products when they have limits but in this case I would have to side with the FIOS guy... 77 tb of data is huge. Whether he charges for it or not is irrelevant, the guy's service is no different than a business. They asked him to switch to business... it seems reasonable to me as well. I actually find they were rather flexible if they let it reach 77tb

The interesting data here is he is consuming 30,000 more than the average user. which would mean the average user uses between 2-3 gigabytes of data.
