Typical blame the apple fanboy's for the lack of quality apps and the technical problems of android.. All you slashdot android fanboy's are such a sorry bunch of whiners. It is clear that in the mobile space the android users are the fanboy's not the apple users that is the big difference from the pc world where the apple users are the fanboy's
"Then you pretty clearly don't understand what rooting is doing or what Android lets you do in general." I think it is more the case of your reading ability that fails than my understanding of of what rooting means. I qualified "normal users".
You mis the point completely. No you would not need to customize the interface because the interface is very good and not fucked up by some phone manufacturer that does not know software at all but wants to stand out.. The Iphone has a better battery live than most android phones so no need to under-clock. It works very well without customising and android does not if have to believe Shihar
All your reasons for rooting your android phone are also reasons why normal users are better of buying an iphone if you ask me.
This is mostly a commend about slashdot moderation. The original poster is entitled to his opinions of course but how the hell can baseless wild speculation be considered insightful????
If the Egyptian people can get rid of Mubarak why can't the American people get rid of the republican party?
Basically almost everyone who bought a tablet bought an ipad so what is the problem really? Why would anybody even bother with an android tabled at this point?
I think hardware specs do not matter that much as long as android does not have high quality tablet app's like garageband or imovie or even iwork there is no competition for apple from any android tablet.
Yes it was a gray slot loading imac. Very nice machine never gave me a bit of trouble. The good old powerpc times
My g3 imac did not have a fan.
I do not think the risk taking he is talking about is the drilling it self but the deregulation and the cutting of corners to make a few bucks.
That is what I call hard core fanboy-ism calling a simple fact misinformation and distorting the truth yourself at the same time. -the discussion was not about the HTC Nexus one (not officially on 2.3 yet) -almost nobody cares about community support or custom rom's - good luck to the person looking for that phone that will get all the updates out of those thousand different handsets. Those 999 other hand sets do matter even if you like to ignore them because they do not fit your argument.
Are you joking? Look at the situation of android phones vs iphones. Iphones are getting updates the android phones are not doing very well in that regard.
If Twitter is doing business in Europe it has to follow European laws. Look at the example of SAP SAP is a German company that was sued in the US by oracle
You think any intelligence organization has the knowhow to write a specialized worm like that? I think that is not how an operation like that is executed. They will really need to have a contact in the company that made the centrifuges to do it for them. That is also their main business having a network of contacts. It will be much more difficult for the mossad to have that kind of network or contacts in China than it is to just do the attack. That is why the articles argument is so strong in my eyes
