Epic Privacy Browser - 6 views

  •  
    Give up your extensions, spell-check, password saving and form-filling, your auto-suggest for search, your history and web/DNS cache ... and get privacy. Epic even routes your searches through it's proxy so you can use Google without being tracked.
  •  
    The question is, are you giving up too much stuff that you didn't need to give up? It seems to me that you could keep spell-check at a minimum ;)

  • Notification access — Your apps can now access and interact with the stream of status bar notifications as they are posted. You can display them in any way you want, including routing them to nearby Bluetooth devices, and you can update and dismiss notifications as needed.
    • Joel Bennett
       
      All operating systems should get on board with this notification access feature. Just think what clever coders can do with notifications if only they had access ...

Ripple, the utility that saves you from your personal NuGet hell - 3 views

  •  
    Imagine that you have a complicated dependency graph, and you've just modified a source of one of the assemblies, or you just got the freshest bits from the source control.
    Now you want to use the local version in your project, while you wait for your modification to make it to NuGet, but you still want to use the other dependencies managed by NuGet ... and merge the recent updates to the ones that you build locally.

Building Windows for the ARM processor architecture - Building Windows 8 - MSDN Blogs - 5 views

  • apps from Microsoft
    • Joel Bennett
       
      These are "apps from Microsoft" ... not necessarily Office. Note that Office 15 doesn't include Outlook!
  • desktop versions
  • WOA supports the Windows desktop experience including File Explorer, Internet Explorer 10 for the desktop, and most other intrinsic Windows desktop features
    • Joel Bennett
       
      I can't decide if this is a goot thing or not.
      It seems like it supports the Windows desktop BUT NOT 3rd party desktop apps -- is this just because they couldn't get around to rewriting all the utility apps in Metro style (and recompiling was easier), or because they actually want to support deskop apps?
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • integrated, end-to-end products—hardware, firmware and WOA software
  • Partners will provide WOA PCs as integrated, end-to-end products that include hardware, firmware, and Windows on ARM software
    • Joel Bennett
       
      Read this as: WOA devices are not user-serviceable, you won't be able to sideload apps, and you deffinitely shouldn't expect to be able to build your own from parts.
  • Within the Windows desktop, WOA includes desktop versions of the new Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, codenamed “Office 15”. WOA will be a no-compromise product for people who want to have the full benefits of familiar Office productivity software and compatibility, an industry-leading hardware-accelerated web browser, apps from Microsoft, and access to apps in the Windows Store.
    • Joel Bennett
       
      "No compromise" ... that's certainly one spin on it.
