this is why i'm waiting for a phone with Intel CPU+GPU. for now, intel's phone cpus come with powervr gpu which is probably the most linux unfriendly gpu there is. anybody remember intel gma 500? i'm not stepping in that sh*t again.

or you can just buy it from oracle. they have 2 types of kit. one has a wheelmouse, the other has a 3 button mouse:
although for a slightly different reason, this is exactly how i run our openvpn network. whenever somebody from our company went on a trip to a country where SIP telephony was blocked (yes, it's you UAE!), they took a small raspberrypi-like box (dreamplug) with them whose only purpose was to create an openvpn tunnel via port 443.
i analysed the first couple of packets captured in wireshark and there's pretty much no difference between this and https.
Windows 8.1 with Bing is listed at $10 per copy for Intel-based tablets under nine inches in screen size. But after a "configuration discount," of $10, OEMs get that SKU for those tablets for free. For tablets with screen sizes of smaller than or equal to 10.1 inches, the Windows 8.1 with Bing SKU is listed at $25 per copy, with the same $10 "configuration discount," resulting in a $15 per copy cost for OEMs.
There's another related SKU that is also meant to help stimulate the market for mobile devices running Windows. The "Windows 8.1 with Bing and Office 365 Personal" is another low-price SKU available to OEMs. Like the Windows with Bing SKU, this one also requires OEMs to set Bing search and MSN.com as the defaults (changeable by users) on new PCs. This SKU also includes a free, 12-month subscription to Office 365 Personal.
The prices with Office 365 are identical to those for the Bing SKU without Office 365, meaning Microsoft effectively is giving away a year subscription to Office 365 Personal to OEMs for free."
i hope not. i can't imagine anybody choosing suicide over this. (IF this ever moves beyond the usual "lab rats regain memory" stage)
thanks a lot.... i was eating!!!
i guess, now that i have offspring, i'm even more sensitive to this sick shit.
Doesn't matter whether you go up or down from Android 4.4, but at least for me, the inability to use SD card properly makes it a broken system.
I'll probably downgrade my phone from 4.4 to 4.3 if there's no lollipop for my device.
Somebody forgot to tell Renault. I used to have a Renaulte Megane (2007). Changing the bulb took 30-40 minutes. It involved wiggling your arm through opening in the wheel arch and breaking it in several places. There was an episode of Fifth Gear about that - https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
The alternative was to go to official Renault garage and pay 35 GBP (53 USD) for a single bulb change.
Now I have a brand new Toyota hybrid and the process is similarly idiotic.
"conversations" supports xep-198 and xep-280. those 2 are the minimum for a functional mobile client. however, when i tried this messenger (6+ months ago), i found the user interface pretty but less than intuitive.
"yaxim" gives you those xeps too, but only 1 xmpp account is supported and it looks like it's from the nineties.
show me a free xmpp server that supports all the necessary XEPs for reliable message delivery on mobile devices. you'll find exactly 0.
if i remember correctly, only ejabberd caters for mobile users and that is only free for up to 5 users. (the gpl only version does not support all needed extensions)
even if you manage to find one, try to find a free jabber client that supports those xeps. you'll find exactly 0 (well, you'll find 1 on fdroid, but in play store, it's paid for).
so you see, at the moment, xmpp is a very poor substitute for whatsapp (with OTR), telegram and the likes.
closing eyes, plugging ears and singing naaaa naaa naaaaaaa. unbiblical! 'murrican dream for all
