Re: [0.10.2] AdMob support for Android!

Not exactly on topic but I'm too curious.

Can anyone share their profit figures off ads, and how it fares compared to other monetization methods? I heard it's pittance compared to IAPs, but I'd rather take someone's first hand accounts than vague rumors.

Re: Love on Mac w/o OpenGL

And it works to their advantage spectacularly. Removing support for a legacy API means nobody will be able to use the obsolte, bloated and underperforming functionality, they'll have no choice but to upgrade. Having app store quality control also helps immensely in general. That said, they produce n...

Re: Getting into networking

It appears not many people here have such degree of experience to answer this (or they don't care to do it). Because it's a "generic" networking question you can ask it on other, regular programming forums.

The former is a binding for OS socket-type data ports, nowdays mostly used for internet communication. The latter is a basic w...
