Farewell, Internet (Download Squad)

Apr 12th 2011 12:23PM Ok, but can you tell us WHY you're shutting your doors? I think we deserve an answer.

I'll keep your site in my daily blog rotation for a long, long time to come. I love you guys, even Sebastian.

CrossOver Games for Mac and Linux updated, fixes Rift, improves WoW and Star Trek Online (Download Squad)

Mar 25th 2011 11:03AM @andrewdotcom And for this very reason, WINE is primarily of interest to Linux users like myself, who don't have the benefit of Mac-compatible games. I don't know how big or necessary WINE is on Mac, but on Linux it's HUGE.

Renewed hope for Steam on Linux: Valve job boards looking for engineer to port Windows games (Download Squad)

Sep 3rd 2010 12:50AM Yes, this job posting is old news. But the fact that this posting is still up despite Lombardi's amorphous claims that there is no Steam Linux desktop client in the works is new news.

Facebook wipes out iPhone app access to its system (Download Squad)

Apr 15th 2010 10:51AM Mike,

Apple should protect copyright laws when it has been determined that a violation had, indeed, occurred. I don't really see an app with the phrase "for Facebook" being a copyright violation, or anything with an i[word], as a single letter cannot be patented.

Apr 15th 2010 9:33AM Apple needs to surgically remove the stick from up it's rectum and ignore frivolous violations and amend it's draconian app policies.

Joe Stalin conducted fewer purges than Apple.

Google to open-source YouTube's video codec, may end HTML5 video war (Download Squad)

Apr 13th 2010 10:54AM Kyle, I thought that the author was mistaken. Youtube's HTML5 beta page makes no mention of VP8, just H.264.

bug frawg, I know that Flash isn't a codec. When I said "It's either Flash.." it was a separate statement referring to video technologies that power youtube video.

Apr 13th 2010 10:22AM Can someone please tell me how this VP8 is "the codec that powers YouTube"? It's either Flash, or, if you want to use HTML5, H.264.
