I think he knows, he even supplied a wiki link

Probably the target consumers. From what I saw they're targeting the lower end of smartphones with cheaper devices and people in developing countries such as most of those above are more likely to buy something like that compared to US/Canada or Western Europe, where more people afford higher end devices.

Great stuff, I was using svndiff before this but it was more of a miss than a hit, this seems to work nicely so far.

-----


It works fine, but I am unsure of what advantage it has over svndiff, which also works fine.

-----


Well, in my case svndiff never worked fine, it would showbad diffs 9/10 of the times, but maybe it was just a misconfiguration on my part.

-----


I would have liked that as well, don't know what 4ad's experience was but I almost never had any problem with the plastic money. The bills are waterproof, very hard to tear and much more resistant in my opinion.

You are confusing things and that is not true (at least not for past models). See more here: http://dev.chromium.org/chromium-os/developer-information-fo...

Very confusing now that parent is deleted but grandparent is not.

Actually the main problem of MAC vs IP, as the response states, is the lack of hierarchy vs the presence of it.

Both IPs and MACs can be changed by the administrators and both can be set such that duplicates exist in the network. However the fact that MACs are set by manufacturer makes them impossible to route as the values are not related to the network locations but related to hardware origin.

Edit: As one of the replies stated, they are also used in Stateless autoconfig in IPV6 (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6_address#Modified_EUI-64)

I've been using Netvibes for almost 6 years now and I'm very happy with it.

Well, speaking/writing/understanding a language is a skill (that some people have and others need to learn) so I don't see why that would be different from knowing a programming language or algorithms.

And a population of 3.6% of Romania... I think we can find a 700k pop city in Romania with a higher adoption than that :)

-----


Indeed, but he's still right and I apologize for my error. But I couldn't really find Bhutan there :)

Exception: HP Touchpad. ICS runs great on it.

-----


I've read that the Nokia N9 also does a good job of running ICS.

Other counter examples: Boot2Gecko (runs well & generally demoed on a Samsung Galaxy S2), Ubuntu for Android, ASUS Transformers running various Linux distributions, ...

-----


Because the touchpad had a fairly open bootloader and we built a more versatile one for it based on the same code base (moboot). The bootloader in the OMAP chip also allows booting from usb and does not require the second stage be signed.

-----


That is because WebOS was running a Linux kernel and the hardware was similar to a HTC phone(Sensation?).
