Eight is what you get when you dump the file to a terminal (with type on Windows/dos and cat on *nix) or when you grep through a bunch of files, etc.
Patriotism is not about pride, or at least need not be. You can love your brother without thinking he's the greatest person in the world, or even greater than average. The same is true for one's country.
Google account is good to have for Android, but you don't need Google+ except to leave reviews on Google Play.
You might just have done a few hours of part time work on top of regular employment, e.g., doing a few hours of babysitting for a friend.
Most of the apps I make are based on something that I want. I make it largely for myself, and then it turns out other people want it, too.
There are plenty of things that need to be done, at least on Android.
A night vision preserving red/green screen mode app for astronomers and others who like to use phones in the dark (chainfire had one but last I checked it stopped working with Android 4.0; I made one that worked with some Galaxy phones, but it doesn't work with recent ones).
An ebook reader app aimed at serious scholarly text study that supports large corpora with fast indexed boolean search and automatic alternate spellings (I like to work with 17th century French texts
An astronomy app with fully expandable object databases and integration with sky survey photography.
The Wanam Xposed module lets you set any app to work as a window. Somehow I never actually end up using the multiwindow facility on my phone, though.
There is an official port of Graffiti for Android in Google Play.
The LCD version also has the advantage of not having parallax problems when reading. Different heights of drivers look at the dials from different angles and if the needles are, say, a millimeter in front of the backing, different readings result. The fuel gauge when close to empty is one case where this can make a difference.
(Personally I prefer numerical gauges: I all faster with numbers than interpolation, and I prefer to look at speed on the GPS than the dashboard.)
I've conducted a lot of interviews (in an academic setting in the humanities), and I can say that it's risky guessing what exactly the interviewer is trying to accomplish with a question. Sometimes a question is asked neither to see if someone knows the answer to the question nor to see the content of the interviewee's answer, but to see how the person handles being asked such a question. I could see someone deliberately asking a question that he know the candidate not to know the answer to just for such a purpose, though personally I would avoid doing it as it's neither nice nor useful to stress out the interviewee even more (but I might do it in a mock interview preparing someone for a real interview).
So the interviewer might be interested to see if the interviewee honestly, humbly and politely says: "Would you like me to tell you the container classes I use the most? The others I have to look up when I need them", or if the person pretends to know the answer, or rudely bristles, or tries to weasel out of the question by changing the topic (of course it might be a bonus if the interviewee actually has a great memory and knows all the container classes; but then another question might need to be asked to gauge character).
It's a lot easier to get caught when breaking into the padlock than when driving by with an RF device.
If you use rechargeable batteries, four AA will be about 4.8v. Which may be close enough.
IANAL, but I wonder if a case couldn't be made that by limiting the distribution of parts of their Linux kernel source code, they've violated clause 6 of the GPL2 in every product of theirs that uses a Linux kernel with that code, and therefore every other Linux kernel developer is in a position to sue them for copyright violation, or at least file DMCA notices with anybody distributing their stuff. I am assuming they ship products using that kernel code.
As I recall from looking at the Consumer Reports reviews of countertop materials, laminate (e.g., Formica) and quartz provide what looked to me to be on balance the best functionality (at least for my mental weighting of the categories). Laminate looked better than granite to me. Quartz was a little better than laminate functionally, but laminate is quite a bit less expensive. I can't remember the specific ratings for the categories.
As for heat resistance, here is some anecdotal information. We lived in a house that was scheduled to be demolished right after we moved out, so for the last couple of months I did not take any precautions with the laminate countertops, since they'd all be smashed up soon. I would take a pot straight off the stove and put it right on the countertop (it felt wrong!). Visible results: none. I don't know the variety of laminate, I am afraid.
Aren't there legal problems with CM and other ROMs including these blobs, since they're presumably copyrighted? Or are they licensed by Samsung under the GPL along with the kernel? But in the latter case, shouldn't Samsung be including source?
I'm a bit concerned by the implicit suggestion that if a lot of individual judgment went into producing the averages, then perhaps they might be copyrightable. IANAL, but it's my understanding that ideas, facts, opinions and judgments are not copyrightable. Only their expressions are, and only when there is creativity in the expression of the idea, fact, opinion or judgment. Whether there was creativity in coming up with the idea, fact, opinion or judgment should be completely irrelevant. Thus, when the judgment is that some number is 3.95%, then an expression of that judgment as "3.95%" is not copyrightable, being quite uncreative, but expressing it as "just a shade under four tenths of a tenth, where a shade is a twentieth of a tenth of a tenth" might be creative enough to be copyrightable.
It may, though, be that the judge is just doing a two-prong attack here: neither is the expression creative nor are the ideas creative either.
