"We ship in Fall", let that be a bit optimistic and say they ship at the beginning of 2014. That would still be a decent phone IMO (my current phone has worse specs and I plan to still be using that in 2015).
I think smartphones have reached a point where hardware specs such as CPU speed, RAM, etc. are not that important anymore (like PCs). 1GHz quad-core should simply be enough for almost anything you might want to do on your phone (at least IMO).
KDE on Windows.... Egads, how much RAM does that require?

Smells like Assange...

I'm pointing you to the link because I do not fully understand it myself
That is annoying. I run into it at times. Right clicking on the back button will let you select back further in your history. While its not a fix, it what I have resorted to doing with sites that do that.
Oh, I didn't know you could right-click it, always held it down until the list appeared. Thanks, this will save me some time in the future
So the thing is, when I click on the link to The H YOBA posted, the news item puts itself into my history four times, which means I have to press back several times to get back to the forum. This also happens when I open the link in a new tab. And happens as well when I'm clicking on h-online links coming from other sites like for example reddit.
I'm using Debian on my server and am quite happy with it. If there's nothing specific you need from Ubuntu (like version X of some fancy web-thing like Ruby) I don't see why you shouldn't choose it instead of Ubuntu. You get the same foundation without being dependent on yet another entity between you and the software (Canonical). By the way, aptitude is king as far as command line package management is concerned.
I did try to run CentOS because I'm a stubborn fanboy, but didn't really like it much. Debian just feels "less cluttered" if that's even possible for a CLI-only system
Firefox 19, and I can reproduce it every time. Maybe because I'm not from the UK and it redirects me or some weird cookie related thing? Anyways, I'd have posted the link had I known it existed
PS: Is suggesting a person uses Emacs for web browsing a compliment or an insult? xD
Since Disney decided they don't need LucasArts (Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, and all these adventure games, Star Wars) anymore, they're closing them down:

Well, looks like the source code of at least 2 of their games is now GPL'd and available on SourceForge:
Does Chrome on Windows have spellchecking at the OS level?
I think they're using a bundled version of hunspell for spellchecking on Windows.
I'm almost interested in seeing where in the US the majority of spelling mistakes are concentrated.
LOL This way we could optimize the English language, find the most common incorrectly spelled words and change the official spelling to their "incorrect" version.
I've been looking at Android phones last week too because I'm really fed up with the internal storage and general performance of my Nexus One. I considered quite a lot of phones (even the iPhone and some of the Nokia Lumias with Windows Phone) and went with the Xperia T. It has a sane screen size, good resolution, nice battery life and allows micro SD cards. The Android modifications seem to be quite okay as well and Sony is not that bad regarding updates (plus, it's supported by CyanogenMod).
I didn't like the Nexus 4 because of the lack of micro SD extensibility. The Xperia Z has a fucking huge screen, and the Samsungs all look like crap IMO. The Motrola Razr i was a close contender as well, but the Intel processor makes the future update situation a bit unclear, although the phone already got the Android 4.1 update. Then there's also the HTC One X which seems to be quite decent. These are more or less the obvious choices regarding Android phones (there's the LG Optimus 4X HD too, but it seems to be a bit behind the current generation of smartphones). If you have no issue with big screens the new HTC One could be worth a look as well.
The new Chrome version, Chrome 26, adds an interesting new feature. Spellchecking. Now Google being a cloud company and everything, the spellcheck runs through their servers.

This means if you use spellchecking in Chrome, every single word you type in your browser gets sent to Google servers. Google is starting to scare me just a little bit here.
