The Corrupted Evil Oracle

We have all known that nothing goes well when Oracle literally 'eats up' Sun. Most of us who were pretty much happier with Sun have seen our predictions come true ... which is when Oracle takes over, we are in for HELL. It's literal and it's real.

Firstly, Oracle kills off innovative Sun initiated projects, refuses to support OpenSolaris, puts a price tag on MS Office plugin for ODF format (making people pay to use ODF format on MS Office) and now Oracle attacks Google because of the Dalvik VM for Android (Read: . 

Isn't Oracle gonna promote the use of Java rather then hinder it's growth ?

Good thing James Gosling quit and escape this evil menacing company called Oracle when Oracle decides to eat up Sun.

Everything when really bad when Oracle ate Sun up. Ouch and it hurts !!!

MySQL database's future is even more unstable because of these hurtful moves Oracle have done.

Oracle's moves have once again further reduced developers confidence that Oracle could take over Sun's legacy and protect us, but Oracle is doing the opposite, reducing our confidence and 'attacking' us.

I, as a Java developer, felt that this step Oracle has done to take on the Dalvik VM is one of the fatal blows to my confidence of Oracle. I am pretty convinced all these years of Sun's legacy would be lost forever by Oracle's sins.

Oracle only cares for itself rather then the communities of developers.

I think it's a little late for Sun to regret handing over their front door keys and trust that Oracle would continue to be nice and not evil. Oracle have betrayed these sacred trusts and ruined the good name Sun once built.

Another Mac vs Win OS ?

Take a look at Mircrosoft's new Mac OS X vs Win 7 homepage:

Isn't this another silly debate about "oh my things are better than yours" which always gets nowhere ?

How silly of them to do so...

I doubt you are convinced and itching for some debate so below we would review through six points the MS team prides Win 7 against Mac.


Hmmm... I wonder how simple and intuitive it claims to be. I had a hard time navigating and finding my Downloads folder or my personal folder. I still think Win XP is far simpler than 7. For Mac, it is as esoteric as 7. I had tried my hands on Mac. At first, I didn't know that the Mac close button would simply close the window of the application but not 'destroy' the application as Windows does but it took my sometime to figure that out. Is that intuitive ?


Some a proprietary software now wants to claim it's power is in compatibility ? It is compatible because most of the OS in the market is Windows so what is it going to be compatible with ? Mac ? Linux ? Solaris ? or maybe Main Frames ?

If Windows were ever following compatibility, why is Windows not writing WMP for Linux and why does Novell need to develop Mono to spread .NET rather than MS doing it ? Mac is no good either. Both are selfish idiots doing things for their own goods and wishing others to fail in the silent (I guess... yes I am paranoid :P ).


Well... you can have choices if you can modify the software codes and many have done so. If it's about the choices of games and softwares, MS have more because as we all know, the market share is still on MS's side and this has nothing to be surprised about.

Having Fun

Yes, it is fun because it has a huge market share and many people have to develop for it since it has the biggest market share and most people are using MS.

Working Hard

Oh... it is hard working because it crashes all so often. Yes... MS loves to be hard working in crashing itself. Mac don't crash so often so it's not so hard working. Now things are done on the web. Heard of Web 2.0 or Cloud ? Google Doc ? That is the real hard working one.


Sharing is easy if you use a universal standard to share things. You can get Samba on Mac, Linux or Win. You can use a website, ftp protocol, a web storage  and many other ways to share. Sharing is not exclusive. It's people.... who try to jealously guard their successes and not share the fruits of success with others and make life easier for all the other people in the world.

What joke is MS up to so shamelessly creating this shameful site. (IMHO)

Below is the screenshots taken from MS site comparing PC vs Mac... what a bad idea...

UAE and Saudi attempts to ban RIM

It has been going on for a while where some governments (for now is the UAE and Saudi Arabia) attempts to block the use of RIM. I wouldn't bother to list some sample sites for reading as I usual do since these news are all over the place and widely available.

Well, that's too bad for Obama's use of his personal Blackberry if he visits UAE and the Saudis.

Many people can claim that this and that are done in the name of security but how much can you justify your claims if you make such a claim ? How effective is it to prevent terror if someone (some government) manages to get RIM to release all it's data to them in plain and they (whoever these governments are) gets them ? 

There's just too much information out there and sad to say, most data-mining programs are very prone to false positives.

Besides false positives, anyone could encrypt their messages before hand without relying on RIM's 'secure' channels and servers and there is nothing RIM could do ?

So how do you get good intelligence ? Rely more on good on the ground intelligence training in combination with technology rather than allow technology to dominate your intelligence gathering and getting too engrossed with technology than practical on the ground intelligence.

Oh... and do you know that banning stuff is classified as breaching of human rights ? If you do it, you might find it even harder to obtain FTAs and enter the WTO or maybe getting scrutinized by other nations.
