Why would anyone drive East when going West is a shorter distance?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
My phone (Galaxy S3) doesn't support Lollipop (and it's looking like Cyanogenmod isn't going to support it either).
To be honest, my phone works "good enough" for me. I'll upgrade when it gives up the ghost.
I haven't upgraded my laptop in 8 or so years, because it works "good enough". Same goes for my DVR, even though it doesn't support HD. The only reason I got a new TV was because my old one died (that said, being able to watch YouTube and BBC iPlayer directly through the TV is brilliant).
It does come with a microSD slot!
It will, but you'll need to wait 24 hours for the fruit to refresh, or you can buy more pieces as follows:
1 piece - 99c
5 pieces - $1.99
20 pieces - $2.99
100 pieces - $9.99 (Best deal!)
500 pieces - $24.99
2500 pieces - $99.99
what exactly is the point of this?
In some countries, people only earn a couple of dollars a day. They still want access to the internet, but paying hundreds of dollars (hell, even a hundred dollars) to do it on their phone is madness. A $29 phone is precisely what they want (and even at this price, I imagine a few people might have to give this investment some serious thought first).
Both Microsoft and Google (read: Android phone manufacturers) have moved to the emerging markets as they can see its potential. I have no idea why Apple aren't tapping into this, maybe they know their customers will blindly buy their next phone regardless of its features or price.
I stopped going to the cinema because of people talking to their mates (usually in any language but English) either because they were bored or couldn't understand what was going on. The second reason was people checking Facebook or something on their phone and causing a distraction.
That said, some movies simply don't work as well on the small screen. I watched Guardians Of The Galaxy a couple of days ago and wished I'd watched it in the cinema instead. The climatic battle at the end didn't feel as epic as it should have.
Provided it gets good reviews, I'll watch the new Star Wars film in the cinema, but as for everything else, I'll rent it off whatever streaming service hosts it.
Come on, give us some credit. Maybe it's just because I don't live in the US that I'm aware that there's a country called Georgia.
It's like in most Hollywood movies when they write "Beijing, China", or "Paris, France", but then write "San Francisco, California".
Are we backing Sony at the moment?
Uploading a fake torrent would only work for about an hour before all the leechers find out it's bad and stop downloading, reducing the number of seeders to less than a dozen.
All these studios (not just Sony) need to realize that people don't want to subscribe to an entire suite of channels just to watch 1 show. HBO seems to get this, but I imagine their new service will only work in the US, meaning the rest of us will have to get Game Of Thrones the usual way.

According to Torrent Freak, a lot of other sites have gone down, including EZTV, Zoink, Torrage and the Istole tracker (I can't confirm though because I'm at work).
Disgruntled GTA V fans have called upon Target to withdraw the Bible from sale, for exactly the same reason.
let Google slide their camel under the tent.
I think you mean "Let Google slide their camel's nose into the tent".
Unless you're making a reference to some weird sex thing I don't know about.
Google+ is popular?
Clearly you don't live in Britain, otherwise you'd understand how polite and accommodating we are.
If there are no seats, ask a fellow passenger if you can sit on their lap. They'll usually oblige, unless they have a very good reason.
