Toyota is often mentioned for its Toyota Production System - a system that guarantees quality and efficient design and testing process and is a precursor to 'Lean' manufacturing and development. A lot of software companies aspire to this approach, but how does it affect integrity of Lean methodology now that the process - that Lean is based on - is a failure of these very principles?

One of the notable features in the upcoming 3.8.0 will be an improvement to dynamic image loading (and the internal WWW_Imager class).

It's really rare for Ars Technica to be so off-target in their apparent sensationalist headline. Android is an open source operating system. Google apps are not open source - because Google is not a charity company offering free applications. They are a business.

Android is and always will be an open source operating system and Google has no 'iron grip' on Android itself. It has, however, iron grip over its own ecosystem and applications that are built on Android, but which are not part of Android itself.

It really is that simple, Ars.

The biggest secret BitDefender does not want you to know (posts that say this are removed from their forums) is that the only thing you need to get around their so-called 'anti-theft' computer locking feature is just to boot your system with a USB and repair Windows. And everything will be back to the way it was. My brother could do it. And he is 10.

Good job BitDefender. Good job.
