Online Backup of All Your Data

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/02/04

Research item: Online Backup of All Your Data.

The indicate that for USD 5 a month, they backup everything but files larger than 9 gigabyte, and provide unlimited storage.

My RAW photo collection is at least a TB; so lets see what they think of that.

#Mozilla and coincidental conflicting #codenames: #Chromeless, #Prism, #Firebird

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/02/04

It seems Mozilla has developed a history of conflicting codenames.

A few years ago, they stopped using the name FireBird because of the pre-existing Firebird open source database.

Today they have Chromeless replace Prism.

Delphi Prism is in use by RemObjects since 2008 as name for their RAD tool for the .NET platform (both Microsoft .NET and Mono).

The Delphi Prism compiler is called Oxygene, but used to be called Chrome from 2005 till 2008.

Prism is in use by Microsoft since 2009 the name of a composite application guidance for WPF and Silverlight.

Chromeless sounds like a prank on Chrome which since 2008 is in use by Google for their browser.

So, two questions:

  1. What will be the next coincidental codename that Mozilla is going to use
  2. Did I miss any code names conflicting with prior product names?
