Brightness can be modified by building your app with dark colors. It still "glows" but at least it doesn't glow white. See mobilemouse for a great example.
You have a dedicated TV remote now; replacing it with a phone is silly. Buy a cheap tablet or iPod Touch and use it for just this purpose, or at least related purposes. iPods also remember your last open app if you close it down with the power button instead of the home button, saving you the trouble of renavigation.
This hits all your points I think?
Fuck you slashdot and your ever more clickbaity headlines. I've been coming here for nerdstuff since the 90s but it makes me angry now more often than it teaches me anything.
Lame, dudes. Super lame.
You weren't at the last PAX Prime, nor will you be at the upcoming PAX East. Any story behind that?
"My Blackberry Q10 has a removable battery, and it reboots itself whenever I set it down on a desk too hard. Most or all smartphones with removable batteries that I've used in the past did the same thing."
"Weird. Every phone I've ever owned has a removable battery. Not one has ever done this, even when accidentally I drop them on the floor. How hard are you slamming them down?"
"This has *everything* to do with the jackass owner trying to ensure that nobody can take their own pictures, because I guarantee he's got a photographer onboard who's taking "professional" pictures which are sold at ludicrous prices. Have you *been* to a themepark?"
Think that through for a second. Any technology in place to affect client's cameras will also affect the hired photographer's cameras.
Also, even if you ignore the deceptiveness of the formatting of the original list, and while I appreciate that they cited the source, I really wish it wasn't from a website whose sub-headline is "Conservative Policy Research and Analysis."
Two years ago I would have looked down on this, saying that the minimum requirement for participating in government would be showing up one day a year to check some boxes on a form.
However, those two years have brought on voter registration laws designed to disenfranchise, laws so blatantly racist that it's pants-on-heads insane that anybody let them get away with it.
Gerrymandered districts can't be fixed til the next census. Mobile voting could be a hell of a stopgap before then.
You guys don't get it - cops aren't against this because it'll catch them breaking the law, they do that all the time now with impunity. They're against it because their boss will be able to see them taking naps in parking lots.
The only way you get to a cop is to threaten to take away their OT, tenure, or pension.
I think that's ass-backwards, but I guess that's just me.
