They had a contract with cyanogen, got f**ked by them for the Indian market, now they don't use it anymore. If I were an OEM, I would not trust cyanogen to be my partner. Guess I am not the only one...
They say they can run any Linux binary on Windows. Then they say they need to compile remotely because they have dependencies on Linux binaries...
GoDaddy Still under boycott
I don't forget PIPA and SEPA

Re: What does to deep mean?
I would think of a "6 feet under" analogy, as in what to do after you kill them - those ads
If your problem with Chromium is about privacy, SRWare Iron browser is based on Chromium, where you get Blink and V8, without the privacy problems that concern you.
>"The other 'small' problem is the almost total lack of oxygen and the very large amount (>95%) of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere already."
I've seen something, somewhere, about how to solve that part...

Re: Why not make it optional?
All flash content should be enabled ONLY after clicked, as in flashblock. Before that, it shouldn't even be downloaded.
So, I'll keep using flashblock, thank you...
When those laptop batteries explode, they are just functioning as they were supposed to?

The relation between Uber and their drivers is not much different from the relation between Apple and the developers that sell Apps in the AppStore, and nobody can honestly say that they are Apple's employees...

They can buy a robo-taxi, add it to a fleet and go do something else. Or just spend that robo-taxi income...
a feature that clears the sensitive data if someone forces you to log in, would be very nice to have. Not only for phones... I can see real use for it on Laptop passwords and even more on ATM machines, to change your available balance into a lower predefined amount.
if we'll be able to connect the phone to a bigger screen and use it as a desktop, it will be very appealing!
with mobile processors getting more powerfull everyday, phones will soon have enough processing power for all the tasks most people use a computer for.
Re: Doesn't exonerate Google though
If the privacy controls exist, then maybe the right way of making it more private for everyone would be with an extension that could set better defaults and display every one of those controls inside a very easy to get to interface. Problem solved.
instead of forking and staying some versions behind, and inserting vulnerabilities durinng the process...
Re: Isn't that a bit risky?
Nokia kept the patents. Microsoft just got a license to them
light vs energy
although I believe in your numbers about the stability of the amount of money spent, I don't think that comes from more light on our houses. You get more efficient lights, you use more energy on computers, tablets, smartphones, etc.
Our energy consumption is not going to fall, that's for sure, but due to new uses, not for brighter lights indoors.
they are, obviously, looking for cows

"agricultural workers were healthier than the general population"
Absolutly no relation to the fact that they do exercise everyday, right?
Instead of sitting all day at the computer and watch tv all night, as the general population do...
Forget about the facts
Can you spot a Lewis Page article just by reading the headline?

Did/can the planet survive?
Of course the planet will survive!
The big question here are the consequencies for life on the planet, humans included.
One thing we know for sure: plenty of insects will make it...

Forget the bluetooth part, and build an Android computer inside. Like a tablet, but with keyboard and using a large monitor / TV set
As a consumer, I would like to buy whatever hardware (cell phone) I like and install whatever OS I choose. Android compatibility would be needed, to tap into the huge number of available apps.
As cell phones close the gap to PCs, in terms of power and usage, I expect to have those same options.
Re: Swing and a miss ... of the point
Yes, and that world changing £800 marvel, didn't even support copy past!

USA <-> CHINA
wasn't it supposed for the USA to put pressure on China to respect human rights and all that? It now looks like that it's USA using China's methods instead!
Re: And if I already wear normal glasses?
you can write an app that takes a video feed from where you are looking at, and put it right in front of your eyes (hummm, your eye), so you don't need prescription lenses anymore.

leave my SIM alone!!!
I want to be able to use my contract with whatever phone I want, like borrow one if my phone dies, and I want to be able to use my phone in whatever operator I feel like, as in traveling abroad.
Stop this "kill the SIM" nonsense now!
Re: I'm sorry...

Dart runs 130 per cent faster
"The goal is for Dart to become twice as fast."
If I did the math right, are they trying to slow it down?
Twice as fast is 100% faster...
STOP, because they are going too fast!
If you need to ask, then you can't afford it!
