HELLO LENOVO. Do you really, really want to make smartphones?

Re: Stock Android

Unfortunately stock Android GUI is still not good enough. You only have to look at the appalling stock incoming screen call on the Moto G to see why Samsung and HTC still add skins and mess with the UI of core apps.

'Buggy' Facebook iPad app finally emerges

WTF?

Whats wrong with using a browser to access Facebook on a Tablet?

Admittedly I had to change the UserAgent string in Opera on my Hannspad to stop it defaulting to the mobile site, but if I can do this on a £150 tablet I am sure the user experience rich iPad can do this.

In fact on an iPad that should not even be necessary since Facebook could recognise the iPad User Agent string and serve a decent site.

Why do we need an App for every website we visit?

Twitter hacker flings poo at PayPal

nightflame
FAIL

To True

This guy is spot on with his tweets. Paypal freeze accounts, demanding repeated verifications claiming this is European law for money laundering. Hmm how come my bank only feel the need to do this once when the account is set up?

You'll find PayPal protection is not worth the paper its written on if you buy virtual services from even reputable websites. Terms and Conditions specifically exclude non physical purchases not shipped through snail mail.

Paypal is only useful for eBay, and these days with eBay fees so high, the the effective double dipping of eBay and PayPal fees I prefer to give the stuff away.
