Yes, very confusing I know.
Cyanogen OS is some kind of bastard commercial branch for OnePlus (and possibly for a few more phones).
The updates are a complete disaster, not only that you can't just get to OnePlus and easily see what to install and what's the latest version.
On the other hand the "normal" CyanogenMod you can get for your S5 or many other hundreds of phones is (usually) absolutely fine.
Unless you have a Oneplus One (the predecessor of the phone discussed here) in which case you need to point the latches "in reverse".
The connector is also quite stiff, I can imagine they've got a lot of complains or maybe even broken connectors.
Was it published on the 1st of April by any chance?
It should be obvious for any slashdot member this can't be true, by some orders of magnitude.
If not, it is something too easy to find. Hint: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Slowly put down your slashdot badge and step away, that way nobody would get hurt!
State broadcast means little to nothing. You're paying for it - let other people see it.
From the moment they started all the bullshit with DRM (and I think spending hundreds of millions on this nonsense) I've been thinking "what a nonsesne". You already have people collecting the money, very often by force (yes, people with guns put people in jail for not paying the fee). About 10% of all CRIMINAL prosecutions in the UK are for this bloody fee. It's already all paid. Just make it available!
Thanks Mozilla for making Pocket removable.
Now if they would bring back the features we've had in the extension (be it as extension or not, I don't care how they implement it) then they might be on to something.
Let me guess: you like to burn money by destroying hardware that can be replaced for free and you think automatically the sysadmins in charge of implementing encryption are incompetent. Are you working for the government?
Huh, what is encryption good for? You don't care if your servers get stolen by a random thief and then ebayed?
If you need to RMA disks you don't have to chose between eating yourself the loss and living with the fear that your vendor might just quickly fix it and send it to some random customer together with all your data?
(UN)Suprisingly it also sucks if you WANT pocket and you were registered with them and you have an account and all.
How? They said FF extension won't be supported anymore because Pocket is already in Firefox. Well, the "integrated" version just sends you to Pocket web page when you want to see what you want to read! It is nothing more, just a bookmark (it even shows under Bookmarks button).
While the extension would show your reading list directly, you could dismiss pages without going to pocket web page and so on. MUCH BETTER!
There are a bunch of tablets on Amazon right now with Z3735G (which I assume is about the same if not better as the Z3735F) for less than $100.
They come (of course) with battery, probably charger, screen (of course) and so on. How is this stupid stick "cheap" for $100-$150?
Don't know about the GP but for me my files are MINE. Not that I care much, the media disks I keep unencrypted for other reasons, but each family member who needs access to some of the pictures, documents, scans, whatever has access already on his own devices and his own way of taking care of what he needs.
... and using only the "good" elements (when one or two elements fail the battery is dead for laptop use).
This is precisly what I've been doing for many years, any decent flashlight (or R/C or electronics) forum has at least one huge thread about people doing this.
I have an electric bike pack made out of the best cells recovered from (dead) laptops batteries. I've been using the individual cells for (flash)lights for years and in fact there are so many fake (or just "cheap") 18650 on the market now that if you don't know where to buy and what to buy you'll end up with something worse than a good cell from a bad 10-15 years old laptop battery. It is so bad that it is worse than SD counterfeiting...
There are dozens and dozens of anonymous VPNs available, plus starbucks, McD and so on free wifi, etc.
If the strongest link in the chain the identify of the "last hop" connecting to the web server they're seriously screwd.
