I can't install Windows on my new Macbook because the windows installer doesn't have drivers for my fancy USB3 flashdrive. I'm living too far in the future for you, Windows.
The idea that you can predict tablet market share at all 5 years from now is ridiculous, let alone the idea that you can predict Android tablets will change from 48.8% share to 46.0%.
The new github layout really irritates me, because it defaults to the "contributions" tab for my github page, which is basically just a list of my repositories sorted by number of stars. So instead of seeing what I've pushed in the last month, you see a repository I threw together in 2010 that happens to have gotten a lot of stars at the time. It's pretty dumb.
Damn you Fantasy Flight. You know I can't resist a cyberpunk-themed card game from the creator of Magic: The Gathering. But I'm strong... I can fight it. I don't need more two player games I never play. I will resist!
Fantasy Flight Games [Android: Netrunner The Card Game] - Leading publisher of board, card, and roleplaying games.
Fantasy Flight Games. Publisher of a variety of tabletop games including: board games, card games, miniatures games, and roleplaying games.
"Logicless" templates are a pretty dumb idea. Handlebars doesn't even support "else if". Is it so hard to believe that UI code could need some amount of control flow? I'm not trying to perform network IO here, I just want "else if"!
I find when they try and force said control flow to be in the controller/view/ whatever renders said template that it just clutters up the whole thing. It becomes less obvious why you're transforming the data before passing it in, since you can't see the context of the template.
I'm excited about asm.js. The reality is that Chrome projects like NaCl, PNaCl and Dart are never going to be adopted by Microsoft, Apple, or Mozilla. Asm.js, while in many ways technically inferior, has a substantially better shot at being widely implemented.
Adoption of Asm.js isn't exclusive from adoption of Dart since Asm.js isn't designed to be written by hand. I figure, if anything, Asm.js will promote adoption of typed web programming languages such as Dart and LLJS. PNaCl on the other hand, appears to be dead in the water.
Flexbox is one of the new web standards that I'm really excited about. The CSS2 layout model has routinely caused me substantial pain, especially when it comes to e.g. centering divs within their parent. We're ready for a more modern approach. I'm hoping that it doesn't prove too hard to write a good polyfill for Flexblox so we can start using it soon.
I thought this was an interesting fact I saw on Hacker News: Twelve tech companies with valuations over $1 Billion have been founded since 2007. What are they?
