BTW, you call chemistry "basic"? Why is chemistry of any practical use to anyone but anyone but a chemist? I can't recall a single instance in my life when I had to apply any sort of chemistry-based knowledge.
Among other things, knowledge of chemistry allows you to reject homeopathy and accept vaccinations.
Right, the biggest risk to you to keep filming is that you spend a few nights in jail, hurt your career, hire a lawyer, spend a few days over the next who knows how many months or years in court, etc.
Obviously, you are white.
Slashdot sig boxes are far too short.
on the street a smartphone can do what no fitness tracker can: track how far you are walking/running
Because GPS is a massive battery suck?
Now I can literally watch another formerly decent channel turn to shit.
"Literally." I don't think that word means what you think it does.
I hate Steam for doing this. All those fucking cards and coupons in my inventory and no option to just delete them.
The movie on the other hand, is pretty forgettable... its very much a 70s movie.
It's all taste, I suppose, but the '70s was a fantastic film era IMO. It was the era where Hollywood embraced subversion to government and corporations, encapsulated by such films as Network, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, The Godfather, The Deer Hunter, A Clockwork Orange, MASH, Dog Day Afternoon, and, of course, The Life Of Brian.
I haven't seen Charly, but calling it "very much a 70s movie" is high praise indeed!
No, sorry, I didn't mean to suggest the devs were unethical. And yes, it seems that we both define "unethical" as "pro-privacy"
You might be right that it's a bug. However, in this case, it still polls extremely regularly even if I *don't* restrict the permissions. So I think that even if it gets the location, it still polls this frequently.
Okay, thanks for the response and candidness. Despite the brain drain, I suppose Swype is fairly mature anyway.
Since I have a rooted phone, I can deny Swype internet access and be comfortable that I'm not being tracked, but I was more concerned that I was supporting an unethical company. However, I've already paid, so I suppose it doesn't make any difference.
Good luck with Dryft. I don't have a tablet, but it looks pretty nifty!
