Just like my current Kindle Fire I will likely be flashing a custom ROM onto it as soon as there is one available. I strongly suspect there will be at least a couple of devs at XDA that will likely strip out whatever code Amazon is using to server the ads when they cook up their ROMS.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Hiding your SSID is absolutely useless in terms of security. You might as well unplug your AP and use cat-5 if you're really that worried about it.
$11/mo? You must be using Astraweb as well. Good choice.
I can't get dsl where I am without subbing to a landline as well. A cable modem isn't really an option either since we have Directv and wouldn't qualify for any bundling deals from the cable company. If I could do dry line dsl I would in an instant, but I get to pay an extra $13/mo for my internet access instead.
"Garmin Mobile XT puts pre-loaded maps" on to a micro SD card that you buy and comes with the program and maps loaded on to it.
Astraweb is heading for 365 as well. And there is another company called Highwinds that provides service via tons of resellers (usenetserver, newsdemon off the top of my head) and they are going for 400. But basically everyone will be in the same ballpark. Just that Giganews is almost twice as expensive as other places for the same service.
No, Giganews is currently in the process of spooling up to one year. Take a look at the counter on their homepage, right now its at 306, not 365.
No, you will get assigned a new number because it's a new account. I think you need to wait 60 or 90 days before a number gets freed in the system and you can select it if available.
Here's a dumb question though...on the features page listed above the dev only talks about 64 and 128 bit WEP. For years everyone has said, "Don't use WEP!" Do anyone feel unsafe using this program on their Windows Mobile phone because it doesn't support WPA?
The posted cache from Google shows that the offending post was made back in 2005! It obviously isn't that important to anyone that might care about it or you think that they might have someone crawling the web just a bit better to try and find things like this.
