Comment Just because it's Texas.... (Score 0) 578

doesn't mean it HAS to do with the border. SXSW is THE largest indie art & music festival in the US, dare I say the world. What do you get with that? A crazy insane group of hipsters and a plethora of drugs everywhere. I live in Tennessee. Since Bonnaroo was 'on the farm', the entire law enforcement body of this state has it's targets set every year so they can get a piece of the revenue too. DUIs, arrests, drug confiscations, you name it. I don't know how it is in Austin, but you can bet that all Texas law enforcement in every direction but south have the same idea.

Maybe Geohot should have made a jailbreak app to get around police blockades :)

(First post on Slashdot, LOOOONG time lurker :) They would not have to remove the Linux kernel, and they would be required to rewrite the GPL parts of the Android source code. WebOS was a proprietary OS built on the Linux kernel. Lots of companies request for their kernel changes to be adpoted in later versions. I read somewhere that by Linux kernel 3.3, all Android drivers will be included. Source anyone? :)
