Mourning Apple's war against sockets? The 2018 Mac mini should be your first port of call

Reaps

Re: Mini or not Mini ...

"BFD. I can run windows on VMWare partition on a 2010 series Mini. And that Mini cost me less than £500 new! How much did you pay for your super-duper laptop?"

Made my old pc in 2009 for £500 that would make the mac look like a toy...

(kids still play 1080p games on it now..)

As people have said apple sell over priced, over hyped crap..

A decade on, Apple and Google's 30% app store cut looks pretty cheesy

Reaps

say again, how are they dodging 30% apple tax?

article seems lopsided, pushing the blame on google.

But never explains how fortnite dodges the Apple tax????

Remember Apple are the bastards that started this shit, and there excuse of security is bull, it's to make sure your not bypassing their Apple toll.

Remember Apple stops anything that attempts to do what apple does ( true 3rd party browsers NOT allowed).

and if apple make a new app that nicks others ideas, the other app gets banned.

Put the anger where it really belongs fucking apple!!!.

Hey you smart, well-paid devs. Stop clicking on those phishing links and bringing in malware muck on your shoes

Re: Not a problem for Node.js

"But this isn't actually a problem, because from the point of view of the end-user who runs the code, all JavaScript is untrusted code and therefore runs in a sandbox as a matter of course."

Not sure if your being sarcastic or not...

Believing in sandboxes to hold all the shit at bay is laughable.

You do know spectre and such were/are triggerable in javascript!!!

and not sure if a coinminer worries about being in a sandbox!!!....

Re: Two year waiting period, anyone?

"It's also hard to come up with an argument for gun control that isn't an argument for alcohol prohibition. "

Way to miss the point dumb ass, is alcohols main purpose to kill things?

guns main purpose is to kill stuff.

stop with the "whataboutism", it makes you sound like a f**king idiot.

WTF?

Are you all too dumb to understand "unlimited", read a dictionary

Main issue is stupid advertising regulator can't read a F**king dictionary and allowed everyone to get away with fraudulent advertising.

Unlimited should mean "UNLIMITED", no stupid hidden Sh*tty fair use clauses.

If there is any sort of limit, then it is NOT UNLIMITED, full stop, no weaseling, no argument, no fraud.
