Why shouldn't I be surprised? Shouldn't the article be explaining why they pulled the Nexus 7 and not telling me I already know?
I don't mind ads. But when it gets to the point where the ads start rendering the web unusable what else can you do? And when you're getting charged an excessive amount of money for data on your mobile plan you kinda don't want to be paying for stuff you don't even want to see.
AT&T uverse (when it worked and before I dropped them) advertised 18 Mbps but I got more like 14 Mbps. TMobile LTE data is advertised as having an 8 Mbps max speed but I get more like 18 Mbps.
I commend you in your war against terminology and technological advancements.
Maybe we should store our files in memory and load them into the harddrive to do calculations.
Google Glass (at it's current state) was never meant to blow up in popularity when it was released. It was to be the first, and to establish a brand. Augmented reality is the future. The race to lead the market has begun. To say they are "giving up on google glass" is like saying they are "giving up on augmented reality" which is just dumb.
So more bloatware, except you have to pay for it after 6 months?
Or just go get any number of cheap $20 flip phones from a grocery store and buy a prepay card
What? There's already cheap 2g phones you can buy that have those things. This thing is advertised for it's data. If you read the article it says nothing about being "made for countries that still use 2g". The whole emphasis is the price and affordability of the phone. This would indicate this is made for a market where there are more expensive higher quality options.
So what if it's $29. It's worthless without a data plan, which I haven't seen any mention of. The price and quality of the data plan is more important. And hearing it's likely 2g makes it nearly useless for most people.
I've seen them for sale in Urban Outfitters, and Barns & Noble. Probably seen them other places too.
If I had to guess, the main reason Vinyl is popular is because of the enlarged artwork and people wanting to own some memorabilia from an artist they like. I wouldn't be surprised if the people who own these records never play them.
I don't use AdBlock, but would consider using it. Basically, my habbit has been if an ad prevents me from reading what I want to read, I just close the window and go to another site.
Who modded a post that fails at elementary school math informative?
