DILLINGER: "No problem, Master C. If you've seen one consumer electronics show, you've seen them all."
I believe other apps (like Tasker) are broken now too because of this issue.
Ooooh, that might be a dealbreaker for me. I've been running Llama since almost Day One specifically to switch WiFi off when I leave my house and to flip it back on when I return. I also use it for brightness and volume controls and for running Tasker's Taskkill plugin.
While I have yet to see any reason to upgrade from KitKat (rooted, CM11M12) now I'll be extra wary of upgrading to L.
The other Lumia WP went to my Dad, later to the smartphone party than I was. As an intro phone, for a non-geek, it was perfect. It did everything he needed it to (GPS, news, basic camera) and the Tiles interface was easy enough for him to understand and customize to his liking. Ultimately though, he and my mom grabbed a pair of LG Optimus L90s for $100 each out the door and both are very pleased.
Apple and Windows never appealed to me personally because of their locked-down nature and my need to customize my UI to within an inch of its life. But I respect what both competitors have done with their OSes.
[...] surrounded by the Musk's hype-and-media Reality Distortion Field.
I'm pretty sure Mr. Jobs both patented AND trademarked his innovative yet elegant Reality Distortion Field. Please select a non-infringing term when discussing Mr. Musk's abilities. Thank you.
Though if they continue to move towards human cargo that will change the equation significantly.
Honest question: You have a ticket to the ISS. You can choose a rocket that just came out of the VAB* or one that recently launched and returned whole and was turned around for this flight. Which do you trust more?
* Yes, I know SpaceX isn't using the VAB now but you get the idea...
SpaceX wants to soft-land the whole first stage in a way that won't require a lot of reconditioning. If it works, it would be a different sort of thing than the shuttles.
* Your schedule could be established with power and water cycles - known empty home would be more interesting to thieves
* From above, if your insurance company determines you keep odd hours they may find that to be higher-risk and adjust your rate
* Law enforcement may be interested if your power and water usage continuously exceeds the requirements for the number of occupants - are you running a grow room? Warrant time!
I'm not necessarily paranoid enough to expect these outcomes, but I *am* jaded enough to expect humanity to fail us in such a manner.

All too easy...
Because Twilight wasn't that bad of a love story + vampire action, if you weren't married to the classic monster manual vampires.
Team Ed by the way.
