Thanks for reminding me--a flashlight app with ads?! So very wrong. I love it when people try to make money off of something I could probably code myself in less than a day.
You do realize that if we were to execute this "party engaging in evil must be crucified" idea that I keep hearing thrown around on Slashdot, sooner or later it would be used on those it was intended to protect, right?
I enjoyed the completely unnecessary commas and missing hyphenation in the main comment, too.
It can be, but in both the original article and the article I linked to, the radioactive material in question was not powering anything.
Just the name of the app already triggers my warning bells. Poor grammar (why is "Free" in the app name, let alone at the end?!) and the "Brightest!" modifier (reminds me of all those countries with "People's" and "Democratic" in the names) make me suspicious. And this was in the Google store? Shame, Google.
Confucius says, "The programmatic equivalent of waving my dick at it and having it decrypt doesn't work if you're a woman."
Well, "once" does not equal "never," now, does it?

No need for an external outgoing connection if they're harvesting them on the way to the junkyard. And like I said, busting open the thing physically exceeds my definition of 'trivial,' partly because you have to already know it's there, too.
Reminds me of the case where hobos found a radiation device at an abandoned hospital and proceeded to force the thing open and smear the radioactive goop on their bodies in decorative patterns.
Remember, kids: If it glows in daylight, STAY THE HELL AWAY.
'Days'? You remember 9/11, right? Try months.
God forbid a nonreligious person be associated with being morally upright...
Slashdot is a Western website. "Industrial Revolution" generally refers to the West. Get over it. Hell, this is an article debating the merits of California vs. Seattle!
Yeah, vote 'em all out, Democrats and Republicans alike.
Lawyers. And usually the dumbest people they can find, who don't know about either programming or jury nullification. Because why not?
