I really thought this article was going to be about Data.
Just got my GSM one today, and this is about my experience so far. I am having a lot more trouble, and concern, over mounting the internal storage, as I run Linux. I tried libmtp, but it just timed out, though I could at least see the files on my device. Some experimentation needed. Plus, no flash or Google Wallet yet, which is odd. Going to the Google Wallet site says that it's exclusive to Sprint Nexus S phones still, I hope they fix that for those of us who told Verizon to go to hell and went with Google itself over any carrier monopoly.
Seriously. This isn't them getting a cease and desist for using a word, this is them being forced to defend their "Elder Scrolls" trademark because Mojang was seeking the trademark for "Scrolls." This isn't evil lawyers, this isn't evil companies, it's dumb systems. RPS has a good article on it here: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/08/08/bethesda-and-notchs-scrolls-off-explained/
They need it to compete with the runaway critical and commercial success of Playstation Home.
I think you mean it leaves eVGA standing alone, since XFX actually makes graham crackers with chips stuck in it that break at the slightest provocation.
Well, in TFA it mentions it's the first time that anyone in Japan has been charged with "property destruction" for creating a virus. Also, he created all the images himself so he wouldn't get arrested for copyright infringement. Of course, none of this is made clear in the summary, and I think the latter point is more him being a smartass. I thought maybe he was a mis-aimed White Hat, but no, he was collecting the data from the affected computers as well and just hanging onto it. So, I guess that falls under YRO as a general "computer law" issue, but it's kind of an unnecessary story since it's just a guy getting arrested for making a virus. How original!
If you had it previously installed, it'll silently just error out when you try to install the Marketplace version. Hopefully this comment will save 10 minutes of going "WTF?"
No, you're absolutely right, and that's one of the things that makes the whole carrier model extremely frustrating. User choice is extremely limited, but in most markets in the US there's at least one or two options... one just might be better in your apartment, one in your office.
but where are these Android users going to go? I highly fucking doubt it's to the iPhone, since People seem to never want to break their plans or contract with an existing devil-service.
Comparing US bandwidth to Sweden is like comparing the plumbing under the sink to an oil pipeline.
If you can find it, it's probably the one that's closest to your needs. In terms of plan though, you're screwed. If I didn't have a grandfathered unlimited data plan at T-Mobile, I'm not sure what I would've done.
The current dev channel version is 6.0.472.0. And is stable enough for everyday use - I'm using it in every OS I have.

I'd like to stick a linux distribution on it and maybe breath some life back into it. I've got a few vague ideas. It might be a handy file server, streaming video for a security system, or simply just to have a spare box around. My question is therefore in two parts: First, are there any particularly creative projects or ideas anyone has for an old G5, and second and most important, which distribution currently offers the best support for this box?"
This seems like the wrong point to come away with from the Nexus Experiment. You don't see Amazon, or even any other carrier, ending their cell phone sales online. The Nexus failure seems to be a lack of marketing and direction. It's a hell of a device for an entusiast and developer, if it were presented that way, or even sold as an unlocked dev phone (Which is still fucking isn't!) it would have done well. I just got mine a couple weeks ago, and I love it. And am ridiculously glad I got it in before they closed.
apoc.famine writes "Driverless technology from the University of Parma's VisLab was deployed in a real-world test on Tuesday. Two driverless chase vehicles will attempt to follow two lead vehicles across multiple continents, from Italy to China, over the course of three months. The journey will cover over 8,000 miles, (~13,000 km) as the chase vehicles use lasers and cameras to navigate hazards along the way. The team expects to collect about 100 TB of data, which requires a hefty electronics and battery load — the scale is such that the cars can only run for about three hours before needing 8 hours to recharge the batteries. This journey is being billed as just a test, and far from a real-world application. The vehicles don't go more than about 35mph, and need a person behind the wheel to take over at a moment's notice. 'What we are trying to do is stress our systems and see if they can work in a real environment, with real weather, real traffic, and crazy people who cross the road in front of you and a vehicle that cuts you off,' said project leader Alberto Broggi. The goal is not to produce just road vehicles, but to improve the technology so it can be used in military and agricultural roles as well. The team hopes to have helped mature the technology within the next 10-20 years to the point that it can be used on the road."
