Aren't those builds really, really old?
If you're going to use tomatousb, use shibby.
Use merlin if you want custom firmware as close to stock looking as possible.
The only speed increase you get out of harddrives is when density goes up.
Otherwise platter speeds have been more or less stuck at 5400/7200 rpms. Increased density has slowed down a lot in the past 5 years.
Eventually ssds will beat out harddrives in terms of price/capacity. They've already blown them away in terms of reliability and speed.
Maybe i should have more strongly implied: Within the same series. Not across memory/technology types.
I'd say that still counts.

Have you heard of IOPS?
I have never seen a smaller version ssd have a better IOPS number than a larger one.
Fairly sure that increases in capacity usually means increases in performance as well. I have not seen any ssd on the market today that illustrates otherwise.
We're down to less than
When 2TB ssd come on the market, you'll see the rest drop in price as well. I'm not quite sure where the author is getting their information. Check the price drops over the last two years and you can see they haven't hit bottom yet.
You would have to change the code in the PROM for every system to make it unique.
Then you're also assuming that no one will be able to figure out how to solder out the prom for another device.
Then you're also figuring out that no one will produce a patch to return back a different imei even if i was hardcoded.
And manufacturing the exact same thing over and over is way more cost effective than anything that has a one off process.
Just follow a European schedule.
It's effective and works. They just wait a little bit longer before a child gets immunized.
i'm going to respond to my own post for the 3 responses and say:
I guess you've never seen touch controls. The ones where you basically have to look at the display instead of fumble around for station buttons or knobs.
Your ideas are half baked at best.
Such a phone would
a) never sell
b) never work
c) two handed dexterity tests?
Let me fill you in on something. A lot of phones now a days can be voice activated.
I'm fairly surprised that people who are so anti "distractions" via cell phones (even when stopped) claim it's such a huge distraction, that they overlook climate control and stereos as the number one fiddled with while driving "distraction".
There is a technical solution for this.
Have the system report back a heartbeat with status.
It's done today to report back when an antenna is disconnected. GPS receivers can do this. It's probably due to the change in impedance. In a system that has multiple antennas, checking the change and reporting it back o a certain location is fairly quick and simple.
Any car out in the field that fails a heartbeat should mandate that it come back in for servicing immediately.
Manual random checks or filing out paperwork is just plain outdated.
Or Folgers Crystals.
It's been tried and tested too.
Corporations are run by people. The people running the show whether that's shareholders or privately owned by a group or people or a single person has the right to free speech and therefore the entities they control contain that same right as an extension of themselves.
