Spotify decides to help itself to all your data on your phone on an upgrade. And Google make a phone that permits that.

Just checked my settings....Spotify has no access to my GPS, local contacts, or photos. I don't understand what this particular out cry was. Spotify can ask for whatever information it desires, but users are free to just say "no" when my phone asks me would I like to give it access.

I know it's fashionable to hate recruiters. But I've worked with a lot of them that specialize in recruiting local developers. I either email them or call them, they send me relevant job leads, I tell them which ones I want to apply for, and 100% of the ones apply for I get at least to the in person interview phase. I've only had one job denial using this method. A few others wouldn't match my salary requirements.

Why? On the old plan, to get the newest iPhone you had to pay $200 - $500 + tax up front. Now you can walk into store and only pay tax and get billed monthly. The difference between $27 a month - for an iPhone - and $10 month, for a mid range Android phone, is a lot less psychosocially than $200 up front and "free".

Besides, the rest of the world already works like this and Apple sells iPhones everywhere.

As of next Thursday, UNIX will be flushed in favor of TOPS-10. Please update your programs.
