damn true

as I said to someone recently, no one hates software developers more than other developers. and if you don't, then you're probably part of the problem.

the funny thing about talking about software dev and vesper is that i actually wrote a notes app for the ti 83 plus back in the day

markers, Friday, 4 April 2014 15:37 (six years ago) link

you can store ten strings on it. i stored all the notes as a series of numbers in a matrix instead of storing them in the strings.

markers, Friday, 4 April 2014 15:38 (six years ago) link

you convert each number back to a character, and each character back into a number, to go from what's stored to what's displayed. something like that.

p.s. ticalc.org existed long before the app store did

markers, Friday, 4 April 2014 15:39 (six years ago) link

your notes application was probably better implemented than vesper

too bad you can't make a living off writing shit in ti basic

i would be friends with steve ballmer

markers, Friday, 18 April 2014 17:01 (six years ago) link

At that point, Mr. Ballmer picked up a chair and threw it across the room hitting a table in his office. Mr. Ballmer then said: “Fucking Eric Schmidt is a fucking pussy. I’m going to fucking bury that guy, I have done it before, and I will do it again. I’m going to fucking kill Google.” ….

Every picture of Steve Ballmer looks like it was taken a few seconds after or before he threw a chair across the room.

what's with grubby's recent obsession over this chinese knockoff iphone?

joe "scratch" perry (diamonddave85), Friday, 25 July 2014 22:36 (six years ago) link

Jobs loved having enemies so Gubes has to love it too I guess?

The Chinese: Good enough to manufacture iPhones, not good enough to compete with the iPhone

, Friday, 25 July 2014 23:04 (six years ago) link

Gruber is probably just salty that Apple so badly misjudged the Chinese market with the 5c

, Friday, 25 July 2014 23:04 (six years ago) link

I think he honestly sees even Samsung's less brazen chasing/copying of iPhone features and aesthetics as some sort of monumental injustice, a crime not against just Apple but against all human creative endeavors.

I have noticed that every page that tries to sell you something now has copied Apple's sales roll like

"Catchphrase. Less words. Bad pun."
