Just let XP finally die...
Why? My retired parents have a Gateway PC that runs perfectly fine and runs XP perfectly fine. Doesn't crash, doesn't blue screen, they just turn it on and it works. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
I see that you're typing these slashdot posts on your abacus then?
The actual UI in waze is much better than google though. For some reason, google maps nav always seems to lag about 50m behind where I actually am (which means I've missed a few turnings a couple of times) whereas waze is spot on. Also, Waze is the only nav app I've ever used that zooms out enough. When coming off a motorway, it will be zoomed out enough for you to see the next turning so you know whether to be in the left/right lane of the slip road. All other maps don't zoom out far enough to show you this so you have to guess and switch at the last minute when you get close enough to the roundabout to see where you are going next.
I really hope that google doesn't kill the waze app after 'integrating' it into google maps.
but to someone looking for a 30+ year real estate investment, and observing this trend of accelerating ocean rise, it will effect property valuations for some coastal property.
I live about 15 miles inland, so raising seas will actually increase my house value because I'll then be able to sell it as having a sea-view!
And it's trolls like you spreading FUD that don't help matters.
It was a joke. Of course gi.ga is under the same TLD as me.ga. That's part of why it was funny.
They already have one - the one Apple yanked with iOS 6. Unless their contract with Apple stipulates they can't release it as a regular App Store app, they could've submitted it to the App Store the day after Apple announced iOS 6.
Unfortunately not. The old maps app (iOS 5 and below) whilst using images and data from google was actually written by Apple, not Google.
I know I'm going into dangerous territory here by praising Facebook for their security (ssshhhhh!!!!) but when you add 'apps' to facebook, it will tell you what it is wanting to access but facebook gives you the ability to deny access to this information from the app. I would have thought it shouldn't be too hard for android to do this at the API level (and just return null or 'denied' or something) so that you can still pick which flashlight app you want to use, but tell the OS not to pass your address book onto it even if the app wants your details
