Windows 10 May Have Gotten Its Name Because of Lazy Coders - http://gizmodo.com/windows...
Windows 10 May Have Gotten Its Name Because of Lazy Coders
"If you're not code literate, allow me to explain. An easy (and lazy, and bad) way to check what version of Windows a user is running is to just read in the first little bit of the name the operating system is using to identify itself. There are better ways to do it, but if that first bit reads "Windows 9" it means the operating system has to be either Windows 95 or Windows 98. Unless of course there's a Windows 9." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"It's a y2k sort of problem, where programmers either didn't think the Windows naming scheme could ever generate another "Windows 9x" version, or didn't want to bother future-proofing their code to control for it. And while it's just an unsubstantiated theory that this is why the name is Windows 10, the problem this coder brings up is verifiably a common shortcut. " - Andrew C (✔)
Here I thought they wanted to change the luck of every other version of windows sucking.. and renumber the whole damn thing so the even numbers are good now. - Me
Why not just name it Mystery Science Windows 3000. - Joe
I wondered if they were trying to mimic Apple, so that every future version of Windows would now be Windows 10. - John (bird whisperer)
They wanted to avoid Windows Nein (as per a joke in the comments). - Stephen Mack
But if you are not code illiterate and you have actually ever had to write any code that detects win9x, then you know that code example would never work, since Win95/98/ME version number actually begins with a 4, and not a 9. :P - April Russo
Vista is 6.0, 7 is 6.1, and 8 is 6.2 - Eric - It's My Thing

While amusing, I haven't heard this rumor internally. The response has mostly been one of flabbergast and resistance. ;$ - joey from iPhone

Is Windows 10 actually going to have an internal version number of 10, considering Windows 8.1 is really 6.3? - Victor Ganata
Actually, maybe they're getting the 10 from the fact that the next internal version number might be 6.4? :D - Victor Ganata

In hindsight, we should have pitched FF to our friends as "beautiful and ad free".
We still can. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Also, I think FF and Ello are both behind for not having native phone apps. FF, well, it was designed slightly before the smartphone era and acquired by FB before smartphones became so dominant. Ello, ... Ello feels like a boutique product that doesn't fit anyone but its own designers that well. - Andrew C (✔)
And of course FF now has one problem that Ello doesn't. Both may be ad-free, but I think the point of people who tried/are trying to move from FB to Ello is that they are fleeing FB, and well, FF is owned by FB. - Andrew C (✔)
One of the features that would be a good sell but is broken is the Twitter integration. In a fit of pique, I took my Twitter account off. When I tried to re-add it, it didn't work. I just realized it would be great if I had favorites coming in because Twitter's own interface makes it difficult to search through favorites (which I use like bookmarking). - Spidra Webster
Perhaps with a big enough uptick in traffic we could prompt FB to rebrand FF as FB's answer to Ello. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I think they would just shut it off if it got too busy. There is no hope that FB will revive FF. None. - Eric - It's My Thing
Coke still runs Diet Coke in addition to Coke Zero. (and also TAB in addition to Diet Coke... and Coke Zero.) Sometimes it pays to have multiple brands. Or see also Old Navy/Gap/Banana Republic. Or more relevant, FB and Instagram. - Andrew C (✔)
I can't believe we're still having a conversation about FF as an ongoing network maintained with new features. It's not going to happen! - Eric - It's My Thing
History has shown that nothing seems to be able to stop us. We've all been forgotten about, switched off, you name it. FF - still here! - Iain Baker
Listen, I love this place. You know that. But let's not fool ourselves. It's nice, but attempting to grow it won't change what has already happened and how we just keep on with the help on FB engineers in their spare time. Do I wish they could bring it back? Sure. But come on everyone. Let's be realistic. - Eric - It's My Thing
Not saying it's realistic. Just ping ponging off of the OP and Stephen's first comment. FF's state is well known and well established. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
We're the social media version of morse code - an unseen heartbeat. Yeah, we're archaic, but if we were ever silenced, we'd be missed. - Iain Baker
I think we'd miss us but I don't think anyone in the tech world would care. Just a small blurb on Mashable or some other news site when they finally pull the plug for good. That's it. Count on it. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I remember trying to get people of FF and they just didn't get it. They were already on FB and/or Twitter and just didn't get real-time, pulling in RSS, and now those features are pined for on other platforms. It's a testament of the forward looking people on this project that it's still standing and working as intended for the most part. - Eric - It's My Thing
Yeah I had similar experiences. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It just clicks for some folks. Others not so much. I came here based upon a post by Jason Toney on Negroplease.com back in the day. It took a little while to get my bearings. I didn't really hit FF hardcore until I was out of work about a year later. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
My experience with Ello so far is that there isn't much user content, one of the few comments I did make either never got posted even though it seemed to, it's not actually beautiful or even pleasant to look at -- even the Tumblr and FF feeds are better -- just overall, they launched wide access way too early. - Andrew C (✔)
Agreed. For photo posting, it's gorgeous. It has nothing else, though. Except active development. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ah, well, I rarely do anything with photos. Probably why I'm not on Instagram. - Andrew C (✔)
Same here with Ello. How is this the next gen of social? It doesn't even work yet. - Eric - It's My Thing
Ello already has spam. But so does FF so.. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

He was not a happy camper for most of our time there. These are literally the best shots. That said I think these came out well. - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Do you guys ever daydream that one day FriendFeed will get emancipated from Facebook, in, like, a "no hard feelings" kind of a way, and then the whole world will realize how great it is, and they'll all sign up, and then we'll be, like, the rock star elders of FriendFeed, and everyone will love and worship us?
Everything up to "and then the whole world" sounded pretty good. - Vampire Hunter DYSP from Android
I wish FF would get minor feature updates, at least. New Twitter API (?), Vine and Instagram video integration, HTTPS for Youtube, a bookmarklet that can handle whatever weird thing Tumblr does for photo gallery pages. - Andrew C (✔)
Yes. All the time. Although only if it stays sort of the same, or I get some kind of old-skool privileges like free lifetime ad-free membership. - laura x
Nope, for two reasons. One, "ad-free" would not be in the story, not unless it was a fee operation (you know, The Well is still around...). Two, I don't think we could have the sometimes-frank, lively, open, effective, non-trollish discussions we do if there were 100 million people on FriendFeed. (Take, for example, some of the librarian groups on FB. Please.) - Walt Crawford
as long as I'm dreaming up features, I'd like to have newlines in comments (I realize this can be abused), newlines preserved from imported content like Twitter, and some amount of optional markup, or at least spoilers markup. - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, new lines are preserved when posted - ffhound app displays then appropriately (well, android app, not sure about ios version anymore). - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Meg, to be honest - yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Kind of like how Bill and Ted and the Wyld Stallyns band is so revered in the future. - Joe
I have daydreams of hiring Jimminy and setting up FF2 when/if FB ever gives up on this place. But there's no viable business model. The closest would be donations. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Stephen, how much would it cost? - Meg VMeg
Bandwidth and hosting is likely costing FB at least $5k a month. A part-time sysadmin at least that as well. Any development costs would be double or triple that just for maintenance and minor features. If we can't raise $100k a year it's not worth even considering. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Huh. What if we sold ads that only showed up if people weren't logged in? And never fixed/added any of the stuff Andrew wants (sorry Andrew)? And got Blake to host it http://friendfeed.com/blakest... (sorry Blake) - Meg VMeg
I would pay for FF. - laura x from iPhone
I would pay for FF. - Heather Piwowar from iPhone
Yep, me too. I was thinking of how Metafilter is partly pay-what-you-will now, in addition to ads for non-members and for members who choose not to turn them off. - Meg VMeg
What if FB just relaunched FF with a new name and a graphical refresh? Like, "Hey", with a condensed Helvetica logo, all in black and white? #takethatEllo - Andrew C (✔)
Stephen, I dream of hiring Jimminy too. Maybe he could help add functionality to a Buddypress site? - Mary B: #TeamMonique

Earth's Water Is Older Than the Sun - D-brief | DiscoverMagazine.com
"The sun, at 4.6 billion years old, predates all the other bodies in our solar system. But it turns out that much of the water we swim in and drink here on Earth is even older." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"A new model of the chemistry of the early solar system finds that up to half the water now on Earth was inherited from an abundant supply of interstellar ice as our sun formed. That means our solar system’s moisture wasn’t the result of local conditions in the proto-planetary disk, but rather a regular feature of planetary formation — raising hopes that life could indeed exist elsewhere in the universe." - Maitani

A friend had a new iphone 6 and I got to play a little with it. It's pretty large. Not sure a + is in my future. That would be too big. Surprised at how unremarkable it is physically. There's nothing that screams high end about it to me.
Performance is 10% better apparently. The GPU screams, but I'm not a gamer. Battery on the 6 is supposed to be good. - Todd Hoff
There's still a line at the apple store in los gatos so I'll have to wait another day to fondle the 6+. - Todd Hoff
I was finally able to fondle the +. To me the 5s is to the 6 as the 6 is to the + sizewise. Just a little too large for me as an open carry phone. Nice size for reading. Screen was sharp. Taking a picture reminded me of the awkwardness of taking a picture with the ipad. It did fit in the back pocket of my shorts, which is normally reserved for beer cans. My front pockets were not as accommodating. I just had to bend it of course. And it did indeed bend. I did not twist however. So I'm going to order the 6. - Todd Hoff

This Restaurant Wants to Be the Worst Rated on Yelp, and the Reviews Are Indeed Hilarious | Adweek - http://www.adweek.com/adfreak...
This Restaurant Wants to Be the Worst Rated on Yelp, and the Reviews Are Indeed Hilarious | Adweek
"Owner David Cerretini, who tells SFGate that the promotion is "the best business move I have made in years," says the whole thing started when Yelp blackmailed him. Cerretini claims Yelp called him 20 times a week asking him to advertise. He did, to the tune of $270 for six months. But when he stopped advertising, he claims his reviews turned negative and one of his best reviews even vanished. That, according to Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, is something Yelp is legally entitled to do. So, Cerretini hatched his 1-star plan. Next to a sassy sign explaining how much it charges for extra marinara sauce ($3 for just a splash, $4 if you want some to smell), Botto Bistro lists its various offenses—from charging for bread to lacking ranch dressing—and suggests patrons give it a 1-star Yelp review in return for 25 percent off a pizza." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Beyond press, it has generated some of the best Amazon-esque reviews on Yelp. The site sent Botto Bistro a threatening little letter, but Cerretini refuses to back down, claiming he's attracting higher-paying customers who are quite loyal. Not to mention, damn funny." - Jessie
LOL the reviews: "My experience at this restaurant lasted for about two seconds. I went in, asked them if they have meatballs, and the waiter smirked at me, yelled "you can meet these balls!" and proceeded to flipping the table in front of him. 1 star because I never got to meet those balls...this place doesn't deliver on what they offer." - Jessie
""We don't have ice" "We don't have butter" You know what else they failed to add to that list? Walked in today only to find that they don't carry the iPhone 6 Plus. WTF." - Jessie
Yelp is such a quivering trashheap of a company anymore. I'm glad to see businesses fighting back. They've made it an awful forum for both customers and honest business owners. My stylist gets harassed constantly by Yelp, and one rep actually told her that if she doesn't pay for some service they offer, her business will likely never see any of its positive reviews.

Solar Panels Cost Less Than Electricity From Natural Gas
"A new report out from Lazard tells us something those who follow the wind and solar industries already knew to some degree: large-scale solar and wind power projects can now compete purely on cost with natural gas power plants (as well as coal and nuclear, of course). Solar panels cost less than electricity from any other source in some regions, and the cost continues to fall." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Worth noting is that this has long been the case with renewable energy subsidies, but the point of the report is that it’s also the case without those subsidies in a growing number of places, even while fossil fuels retain their subsidies." - Sean McBride

There is a slight difference in color, the surgical steel is grayer and the stearling bright silver. Some people are allergic to silver so I keep the steel on hand as an option. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I can go either way though I find that I get zero irritation with surgical steel whereas for some reason, once in a blue moon, sterling will cause me slight irritation (itchy piercings).

I don't think I'm allergic, but I'll go with the steel. :) - LB put a spell on you.

Shannon, YES. Have you done owls yet? I use HootSuite all the time for Twitter management and their mascot is an owl. DM me with how much this would cost & I will set aside the funds! *jumps up and down* - Corinne L
I do little owls .. they arent really like the logo though. I'll DM you a photo :) - Shannon - GlassMistress

Indeed. :) Also, I wore them today, and the cashier at Kroger said she liked them. :D - LB put a spell on you.
Nice! It's always fun to get feedback like that. - Shannon - GlassMistress
