After yesterday's Oracle v. Google patent verdict (which doesn't have any bearing on the truly important issue in that case, the 37 asserted Java APIs), the San Jose Mercuy News quoted Google spokesman Jim Prosser with (among other things) the following statement: "So you have all these patent lawsuits between tech companies and it's very damaging to the industry overall. We think the patent system needs to work better for software." Interestingl...

The Greentech doodad comes in two parts, too, one for the fuel and one for the air intake. I think the Moletech gadget only had one. This makes all the difference, I'm sure. On the somewhat less.....

And now it would seem that devices are going in the exact opposite direction. iOS, WP7, Chrome for Android (ICS only) and now IE10 for Win8 do not support Flash. Adobe has dropped its mobile Flash line. I think Flash is finally on its way out the door.
Cade Metz, reporting for The Register a year ago: “The proliferation of Flash [on mobile] is actually happening,” David Wadhwani, executive and senior vice president for Adobe’s Creative and Interactive Solutions, told reporters on Thursday during a gathering at Adobe’s San Francisco offices. “Flash does not run in the browser on iOS devices yet, but we’re confident — given the momentum we’re seeing on other devices and the consumer interest — t...

Two years ago, I would have said Microsoft giving up Trident was a pipe-dream. Now, I'm not so certain. They've shown a remarkable ability of late to embrace technology not invented in the Mothership.

Absolutely how such a situation should be handled. Kudos Github.
It hasn't exactly been a good week for GitHub's nines. Just under an hour of total downtime over the past week comes to 99.46% uptime - far below our standards. As you can imagine, it's been a frustrating week for us too. We've been fighting a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attack since Saturday. The quality of the GitHub experience has been impacted by this DDoS and I wanted to take a second to apologize for that and tell you what we're d...
