Everything bad in the world can be traced to crap Wi-Fi

Perhaps Apple Music is different in the UK but mine does not have a white screen post the normal few seconds for the app loading, ever, and Dark Side definitely shows as the correct artist. Odd.

Rooting your Android phone? Google’s rumbled you again

Re: Rooting...isn't what it was.

"update android without carrier intervention"

yes, i agree that's most of why i root. However I don't think you'll see any solution to that ever really, Google already tried several times and Android is too big and varied to get control back over without a major sea change at this point I feel.

Re: Rooting...isn't what it was.

For the most part I agree, but being able to drill in and kill all the damn wake locks that android has massively improves battery life in my experience. The other way is just not using Google services, which more than doubles the standby time on my GS3, ymmv.

Re: No problem here - but there is...

CM works great on my GS3; I would HIGHLY recommend not installing anything Google, as the battery life is more than double for me without Google services. I simply backup any apps I want to keep with apk extractor and manually install them once it's setup. I don't do anything that is sensitive on my mobile devices though, so I can't speak to banking apps. In order to update apps you'd have to manually sideload them, which I'm fine with because I don't use many apps.

This is really just proof that Google's payment system is poorly designed and insecure by default. Even with jailbroken iOS devices, there is not way to access anything related to Apple Pay, and even if you could, it's not useful as none of your personal data is ever passed to a retailer. I find this quite hilarious. It's almost like having some things restricted is more secure.

Re: It isn't just Apple

Your comment is completely false, or you don't understand how to use your Sonos system. I have a Sonos system, and an iPod touch on iOS 6. I never lost access to any services or my music library on my computer or NAS. It really sounds like you don't understand how to use it.

The ONLY things you can't do are add a new service or player, and change room settings, none of which are things that are done on a regular basis- I haven't touched these options in nearly a year, with the exception of my new PlayBar I got about six months ago.

You're telling me you have a NAS, Sonos system, and an iPod touch, but you have no computers, Android devices, or newer iOS devices you can install the Sonos app on to add a player for literally 1 minute? BS.

You ABSOLUTELY can still access ALL services and libraries, so you're either lying or don't understand it. Please, call Sonos their support team is amazing and I guarantee you they'll get everything working the way you want it, including using your iPod to control the system except for those (insanely minor) caveats.

SERIOUSLY. people act like Apple held them and gun point and demanded they press update and confirm they're sure. Ridiculous.

Re: Money market

I don't care what you buy, but saying Apple uses rejected parts or generic pc parts is either stupidity or dishonesty. Look around for interior images of a Mac; all the boards are custom and efficient, and even their batteries are custom made. Nothing is generic, you're an idiot, and I don't even use Mac OS.
