Google raising Maps API prices now that it's a monopoly Show more
'In its Maps API, Google has long offered a free or very cheap product, allowing it to achieve market dominance. Now it’s making a classic monopolistic move: Google announced last year that it’s raising its mapping prices significantly, leading developers across the web to freak out because Google Maps is “light years ahead of its competitors.”'
Dear developers: you made your bed. Now lie in it.
What happens when you block all of Google's IP addresses from your life? Many fascinating things break, because Google is an octopus.
My name is Johannes. I live in Germany and am currently studying computer science.I’ve been a FLOSS dev for a few years now and am currently working on getting end-to-end encryption into GNOME’s Matrix client Fractal.
I’m interested in systems programming, desktop app development, cryptography and hacking.
Pushing for more accessibility and diversity in the Free Software community is one of my major goals.
Expect me to post about my projects, stuff happening in the FLOSS world, adjacent political stuff and more.
testing adaptive w tiling, this is basically Mutter bug that cant remember the size of tiled windows
this, merged today on #GNOME Settings master!
some panels still need work, plus it needs the port to adaptive modal dialogs, but bottom line is we have one more adaptive app that will make tiling a bit more useful!
@aral @bjoern You're welcome! We are aware that we are arriving late to the WebRTC game... at some point we had to switch from the OpenWebRTC library to libwebrtc due to lack of maintenance of the former. If you're curious there's a lightning talk on the topic from the last Web Engines Hackfest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHSVMWOYViw
I am. And it is good to have people like you on the 100% (b)right side. Many more should follow. But complete rejection of anything with a hint of shadow attached, makes it harder for ppl who are still in the 'dark' to cross over. There are shades of grey in between, leading to the light.
As a young dev I didn't know this side. Starting w OS switch, then browser, gradually becoming more aware.. its a path to follow, one step leading to the next; more commitment given
