It's climate change because some morons look out the window, see that it's cold today and decide that global warming must be fake.

While the global climate is warming, the effect locally at any given time may not be warming. It sometimes causes more extreme weather, including cold. Hence, climate change.

You need training and evaluation to go to the ISS though, if only to make sure you don't go nuts and push all the buttons. What Virgin offers is more like a normal flight, where the damage you can do is fairly minimal and the only training needed is an annoying video.

I think I know what the problem is. I've seen iOS developers who want to develop exactly the same way on android, and they always fail. They are used to targeting specific resolutions and fixed hardware, unlike say Windows or Mac developers who know how to do portable, flexible apps.

At work I had problems with this on the past. We had to switch to a different developer who had no trouble, even though we were using Bluetooth extensively.

Don't worry about malware. It's just FUD. Unless you go out of your way to be a complete moron, turning on the ability to install apps from anywhere and then downloading from some dodgy web site that should itself set of alarm bells in your head there isn't anything to worry about. Well, no more so than iOS.

Interestingly it's usability I find most lacking on iOS. The lack of an app tray, until recently the keyboard, the very basic notification shade etc. Each to his own I suppose.

The problem is that phone hardware advanced very fast, so while a 5 year old PC is still very capable a 5 year old phone probably has a single core slow processor, 512mb ram if you are lucky and a low quality screen.

In any case, a Nexus phone costs less than half what an iPhone costs, so you can afford to upgrade twice as often.

It just seems like sour grapes to me. Some people are upset that a Chinese company with a real business now holds a fairly arbitrary record instead of Facebook which doesn't even know how to make money without annoying and selling its user's personal data.

More over China seems to have become the new Big Bad for America. The USSR went down the tubes, bin Laden is dead... But China is another easy target and handily also communist.
