Un hacker del iPhone dice que el teléfono "llama a casa" para desactivar aplicaciones indeseables {Engadget Spanish}

Aug 11th 2008 8:38AM La url es https://iphone-services.apple.com/clbl/unauthorizedApps donde clbl significa Core Location Blacklist, siendo Core Location la API que proporciona acceso a la localización geografica del usuario. Esto permitiría desactivar la capcidad de ciertas aplicaciones de acceder a la posición del usuario.No tiene que ver con "matar" o desactivar aplicaciones.

Zdziarski vio la URL y supuso incorrectamente que servía para desactivar aplicaciones. El propio fichero que contiene la url está en el framework de Core Location.

En fin, es verano y no hay noticias que publicar.

In WoW and other games, pathfinding is still "kind of a problem" {WoW}

Jul 31st 2008 5:52AM "There's no reason not to have pathfinding that works in every game, every time."

This article doesn't mention the CPU cost of the alternatives. There are up to 5000 players on a wow server, NPC number is what? 100,000? More memory will also be needed to power the new algorithm (not only puting the mesh in place), not much more but definitely more. A server update would be probably needed and replacing servers doesn't come cheap.

The state of WoW on Linux {WoW}

Jun 28th 2008 4:08PM Most of the sells go to people unable to deal with linux, therefore you need more than just releasing. You don't want to release anything at all that is not well supported, its bad PR. Right now Blizzard can say: we have the best support of the gaming industry (before making easy jokes really compare with other games).

Mass bannings strike Glider users {WoW}

May 21st 2008 2:54AM Also, the image of the botting community as a bunch of whiners is just wrong. 1st rule of botting is "dont bot your main". It has been said a trillion times, and people posting at glider forums know they will get flamed if they even complain. The only whiners are posting at the wow forums.

Mass bannings strike Glider users {WoW}

May 21st 2008 2:50AM You got wrong the "Blizzard is getting serious" part. As a botter i can tell you it takes multiple player reports for GMs to even look at it.
If Blizzard wanted to get rid of bots they could select toons with lvl 70 and neutral reputation on most factions for GM supervision. It takes just seconds for a botter to spot bot due to a combination of gear, place, movements and other details. But Blizzard is not willing to get serious about it, has never been.

Microsoft to EU: You win, we'll change {Download Squad}

Oct 23rd 2007 8:51AM @Michael: tell that to the companies whose products depend on unreleased APIs from Microsoft. Fair play is not "I sell oranges you are free to sell something else or go bankrupt".

I know selling leveling guides isn't new, but who in their right mind would BUY one? {WoW}

Oct 15th 2007 9:39AM Anyone being honest about what they are selling are entitled to do so without you calling them "snake oil sellers" which isn't an appropiate use of the term.
There are many playstyles in wow and achieving the fastest way to complete your quests is a goal so worthy as any other.
These guides are resources similar to wowhead, allakhazam, or yours, and so far the only one complaining is you, and on top of that you promote your work which in the context of insulting others is kind of low.

Breakfast Topic: What do you think of what you've seen and read so far? {WoW}

Aug 4th 2007 9:24AM On the negative side: A new race called vykrul which are really humans with increased size, boars dropping "frostweave", all eastern plaguelands mobs once again, many old models with different colors.
Same game mechanics, a new race that everyone can play, a new bg without fixing existing exploits on all bgs. All previous raid instances forgotten. All gear, obsolete.

On the positive side: Obsolete gear reminds us that wow is a game to have fun with, not one to achieve virtual things. And ofc some new landscapes.

Well, its just an expansion = same game with some new models. I think i would buy it out of boredom, but I also think that right now the best thing for the gaming industry would be for WoW to disappear since they are clearly not willing to innovate.
