I also have a 1.5A cigarette light.. errrr "Power Port" charger that will charge my gt-i9300 S3 just fine but will NOT charge my wife's international Note II. It will for a short while if she's using it, then the phone will start making the charger connected sound over and over. The only way for it to charge her phone is to turn the phone off. The Note II just pulls too much power with the screen, battery etc and seems to overheat the charger. (Not that I'd expect this to happen with an iPhone but thought I'd share)
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
"To cause (an engine with the gears disengaged, for example) to run swiftly or too swiftly."
But I don't see how that really applies here....
Same with me... PDF manuals are great but I print the sections I need and highlight, or read the PDF while copy/pasting or typing the sections I need and printing my version out.
Same deal with when I do remote starts. So much easier to have a hard copy on hand than messing with a PDF or website on a damn laptop or handheld
Whoever wrote the article or submitted it here on Slashdot must not be too heavily involved with Android devices or the news and specs going on...
I'd give you a point if I had any to give.. I fell for that hook, line, and sinker!
For some reason I find well dressed business looking women more attractive than the same girl in say a bikini. Not that I don't like bikinis!
Ah okay I figured it out.. they mean ONLY digital connections on the unit its self, NOT just OTA digital only (so no RCA connectors etc). I think the line I quoted above could have been stated that a little better
"One model of TiVo’ s new all-digital DVRs would include ATSC over-the-air reception capability; this model, therefore, requires waiver of both the DCR Rules and Section 15.117(b)’s dual analog/digital tuner requirement."
Why does it need a waiver of the rules and Section 15.117(b) when all OTA broadcasts (and pretty much all other forms of broadcast) are now digital and not analog? I mean the FCC mandated the analog to digital OTA switch over... I guess I'm just really confused or our government is really that SLOW and/or doesn't know what the heck the other sections are doing even when it's plastered all over the news... ??
not quite, because how do you *know* it's the best way? You don't. it's just the best way of the ways you know, but there are many unknown ways of which some could be better.
For your example: "It's like having a screwdriver and then trying to invent a hammer that's different from a screwdriver but does the same thing."
It'd be more like "It's like having a screwdriver and then trying to invent something that's different from a screw driver but does the same thing, such as an electric drill or screw driver, and then beyond that a cordless drill or screw driver"

I thought the weakness was saying the screen name backwards?
We saw some down in Myrtle Beach. Being that the wife already hates them (and spiders) it made for an amusing time sitting outside at this one "bars" patio enjoying a beer when one ran up the chair beside her!
I did Google.. And it's a dual Core 1GHz... Hardly impressive for the price (I paid $600 for a Note II off of Newegg for the wife)
I had actually contacted BOTH my state senators about this.. and it was actually the republican's office who told me about the democrat who was introduction a bill along these lines.. and I'm glad to see this news!
And what about edus? Is on every student machine we have... And we have 40,000 students at the main campus alone....
Are they going to have a big discount for educational packages?
