I got a little bit of Schadenfreude right now.

Everyone is hyping the OnHub, and I'm sitting here, amused to know that it is TP-Link hardware, and they're one of the worst router manufacturers I ever encountered.

dd on os x behaves kinda funny. It's dead slow sometimes, due to no obvious reason, but there is a simple way to fix it:

dd if=/path/to/from.img of=/dev/rdiskX bs=64k

quinta essentia from this is, use /dev/rdiskX instead of /dev/diskX (rdisk is the raw disk, without system buffering, I guess) and use a blocksize of 64k (which gave me the best speed).


Protip: If you want to have a progress bar for your dd, install pv (e.g brew install pv) and pipe everything through it:

dd if=/path/to/from.img bs=64k | pv -s <size of from.mg> | dd of=/dev/rdiskX bs=64k

and you'll get a nice, wget like, progress bar.

What the fuck? Typical stupid religious assholes.
 
What sort of a bigoted and moronic imbecile does one need to be to create such an "open letter" and pitch it to blogs as such?

#sigh #assholes
Being a religious company and publicly expressing it through the company logo of The Holy Forbidden Apple after it have been bidden to symbolize wisdom, Apple considers being gay a sin and as bad as dying. On 5th October 2011 Apple announced Steve Jobs' death and 30. October 2014 Tim Cook being ...

Must not. Apple treats the NC as solely extensions ("coincidince": that's what they're actually called). You can't build any functionality into them.

However, it must be noted Apple is contacting him and not just banning the app and account with an auto generated email, like Google.

What happened to Android Studio?

It feels unresponsive and sluggish, has graphic glitches, crashes often and is overall pretty slow. That's now how I remembered Android Studio. 
What has Google done with it? It's horrible!


PS: No, it's not JetBrains, the JetBrains IDE run stable, are fast and working perfectly, it's Googles fault.

+Arvid Gerstmann Apart from build times no issues on Linux. Since +Michael Panzer states that that's the case on Windows as well, my guess would be a problem with Java on OS X.

Wouldn't be too surprised: Java on OS X was one of the reasons I stopped using OS X years ago.

The Dex method limit taken to a new level

I'am currently building a game for iOS / Android. It's entirely build using native code, due to the fact that it has to be multi platform. However, I've still exceeded the method limit by about 5k methods.
Seriously, the code in some third-party libraries is getting pretty heavy lately. The libraries I need to integrate into the game are alone about 68k methods heavy.
That's some amazing shit.

Xamarin works really well in my experience. Not nearly as bad as, say Cordova.

Please help us defend our trademark from Groupon and support GNOME!  

"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distributions, and it is the default desktop of Fedora and Debian. SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service solution for the retail industry is based on GNOME. GNOME technology can be found in TVs, tablets, phones, consumer devices, and in common software everywhere.

Recently Groupon announced a product with the same product name as GNOME. Groupon’s product is a tablet based point of sale “operating system for merchants to run their entire operation." The GNOME community was shocked that Groupon would use our mark for a product so closely related to the GNOME desktop and technology. It was almost inconceivable to us that Groupon, with over $2.5 billion in annual revenue, a full legal team and a huge engineering staff would not have heard of the GNOME project, found our trademark registration using a casual search, or even found our website, but we nevertheless got in touch with them and asked them to pick another name. Not only did Groupon refuse, but it has now filed even more trademark applications (the full list of applications they filed is available on our groupon page linked). To use the GNOME name for a proprietary software product that is antithetical to the fundamental ideas of the GNOME community, the free software community and the GNU project is outrageous. Please help us fight this huge company as they try to trade on our goodwill and hard earned reputation.

We want to show that our brand matters and that you care. Of the 28 trademark applications Groupon filed, we have to file formal proceedings to oppose 10 of them by December 3, 2014. Help us raise the funds to fight back and most of all call public attention to this terrible behavior by Groupon. Help us make sure that when people hear about GNOME software they learn about freedom and not proprietary software. Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications. If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME. Please help us raise the money to protect GNOME's trademark and strengthen Free Software!

Please donate here:

Good. No need to even try it.
 
Things to consider before moving to Inbox (personally, they don't bother me, but power users blah blah blah).

Inbox was definitely not designed with traditional email power users in mind, much in the way the original Gmail tab view sorted inbox that debuted last year was not. This is not going to cater to your OCD feature needs.

-Inbox has no way to quickly delete a message. It always requires a selection from a drop-down menu. There is no way to change this.

-Labels and folders are merged. You can no longer have something in a folder and then label it. You have bundles - that's all you have.

-The only "labels" are done, inbox, and later. You can save an email for later at which point it returns to the inbox as a new message. "Done" is like archive.

-There is no "mark as unread." You can now "pin" emails, which puts them in a separate tab, much like starring used to work, but it's also where your G+/Now reminders live.

-User-created bundles are not color-codable, you can't pick a color (they're all gray). Bundles require you to create rules in order for them to be in the inbox - you can't just have a bundle of random stuff you drag into a folder sitting in your inbox.

-Like the current "new" Gmail, the update/travel/social/forum/etc. bundles (aka tab views) can be disabled, and they'll just go unsorted into your inbox. This makes little sense in the new card UI, though, because it is heavily geared toward sorting.

-On the desktop, all compositions are in the mini-popout mode, there seems to be no way to maximize them. All replies and forwards must be initiated from the bottom of the email, there are no reply/forward buttons in the dropdown menu.
