Apparently, they heard someone was running Windows 8
and wanted to see if it's really true.

Ironically cloud storage is far more secure. I know plenty of people that decades of pictures and family videos because they never backed anything up.
I know even more that have windows and macs stuffed with malware.
A Chromebox or chromebook would have saved them
Just like going cloud (google apps for buisness) would have prevented (or vastly reduced the effectiveness) of the Sony pictures hack.
A lot of this makes sense, and would have been cheaper and more secure..
Got a source for that? As obviously with 90% market share, it's easy to be fooled by the press reporting.
Android actually has a very secure multiple levels of device security.
Given that pretty much everyone runs android, I don't know a single person that's ever had malware or security issues on android.
Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?
What is the obsession that some people have with needing the latest android version?
Most real users don't care, google deliver apps and functionality to phones still, and all apps are available, either because the API is very mature and developers don't need to limit to new Android versions, or because Google have a VERY good backwards compatibility library.
So what precisely do these orphans miss out on? Bragging rights of having a higher version number is all I can see..
Actually, out of all the noise on the Sony pictures hack, only 1 single story has anything I agree with, a cheap and easy way for companies of all sizes to reduce the risk to virtually zero. (as zero as it can be in online connected world), it's this one...
Downvote me all you want, as you despise Google or whatever. But anyone that's got any knowledge of security, there are some very compelling arguments this guy mentions, and I firmly believe had Sony Pictures used this (of course, with enforced 2-factor auth group policy), they would not be seeing their current security problems.
It's also really nice that InteliJ understand that some of us are lumbered with Microsoft tools in our day jobs, so being able to use VS keybindings in IntelliJ/Android Studio is a good thing...
Using both Apple tools and Android tools, Android Studio is the king of mobile development, it's a very comprehensive package, and totally free. (a lifetime Android developer publishing account is like $25 or so). Very cheap and easy to get into Android Development.
Nexus5 owner here, nothing bad to say about Lollipop here. Battery life is 20% better than Android 4.4, and not seen any issues whatoever. Performance is even better (it was great in 4,4 already).
Seems like a very small vocal minority are making waves in a teacup, either that, or El-Reg are trawling support forums looking for news on a slow news day.
Precisely what percentage of users are having problems with Lollipop? If you don't know that, how on earth can you proclaim "issues that have plagued early Lollipop adopters"????
I recently had to explain to a new windows 8 user, coming from win7 how to use it.
To open pictures, click start. Ignore all the massive flashing, distracting changing tiles that are trying to sell you things, you want that tiny discreet, no discript box at the bottom...
The realisation that windows 8 was a turd came very quickly to them at that point.
