Igor Alexandrov picks up where Antonio Cangiano left off by benchmarking MRI 1.9.3-p286, MRI 2.0.0-preview1 and Rubinius 2.0.0-rc1. As always with benchmarks, don't read too deeply but it seems Ruby 2.0.0 holds its own so far.

'require is slow in its bookkeeping; can make Rails startup 2.2x faster'

An issue on the official MRI issue tracker that shares a patch which can improve the performance of 'require'. Follows on to the work seen optimizing …

The 2010 Ruby Implementation Performance Shootout - Antonio Cangiano ran one of his famous (or infamous, some may say!) Ruby implementation benchmark shootouts in July 2010. Ruby 1.9.2 took the crown with JRuby not far behind. Rubinius also put in a good showing being just faster, on average, than Ruby 1.8.7.

Apple just released a brand new, gorgeous looking Mac mini . This major upgrade brings us two different models: a desktop one and a server version (priced at $ 699 and $ 999, respectively).

Equipped with a HDMI port, the desktop edition of the Mac mini makes for a perfect Home Theater PC. It's small and stylish, and as such is a great fit in your living room. Most of the reviews I've read focus on its use as a highly capable HTPC (despite its lack of a Blu-Ray drive).

My previous post about a possible intrusion by non-authorized parties on my Gmail account has received a lot of attention on Hacker News, and was even linked to from LifeHacker. There were a lot of questions, concerns, and critics that quickly surfaced, and in this post I'll address most of them. Given the volume of heterogeneous points at hand, I will present this post in an informal FAQ manner.

The Gmail team recently introduced a new feature (in the footer) that enables account holders to verify the latest login activities on their account. I routinely check mine and the results are usually boring, reminding me I check my email way too often (and I do so mostly via browser, through my Canadian IP).

An unwelcome surprise

If you don't check yours regularly, you should ( Google Apps doesn't have this feature though). In fact, tonight during a routine check, I discovered …
