How so? Android is the only major mobile platform I can think of that has an app for making apps. It's called AIDE. Other suggestions are welcome.
US Carriers can now hold up the over-the-air updates for Nexus.
Then buy the phone from someone other than a cellular carrier, and remove the SIM card when checking for updates over Wi-Fi. If neither the carrier-customized firmware nor a SIM card is present, what connection does the phone have to any carrier that would give the carrier power to hold up updates?
Tivoization refers to having source code but being unable to install it due to a locked bootloader. It does not refer to lacking source code in the first place. The owner of an Android phone already possesses a copy of the executable kernel on a flash memory soldered to the phone's PCB. This means that under the GPL, the phone's owner is entitled to a copy of the kernel's source code. The obligation to distribute corresponding source code to "any third party" if it does not accompany the executable was present already in the GPLv2.
How is one supposed to boycott BlackBerry's QNX operating system? Not buy a car?
They haven't released a binary.
If they haven't distributed a binary to the public in any form, then what software is running on the phones?
Wallmart and places used to have terminals setup in store for this but those are long gone - or still sitting there broken and never fixed.
Then be a squeaky wheel. Call the manager daily and recite the following script each time: "Hi, my name is [name], and I am interested in working at [address of store]. I noticed that the employment application terminal at that store was out of service on [date of last visit]. Has it been fixed yet?"
Toll collection has proven itself practical for highways but not for city streets.
There are multiple free sources for internet access that can be had multiple times a day.
Where might these happen to be if the public library closes by the time the bus from work gets there?
Slashdot used to offer HTTPS to subscribers, at a price of half a cent per page view (source: FAQ). But the subscription page is not only well hidden but also unavailable: "Buying or gifting of a new subscription is not available at the moment." The reason it was for subscribers only was that most advertising networks were HTTP-only, and browsers would block HTTP ads in HTTPS pages as "mixed content". Only in the past couple years did ad networks start to offer HTTPS.
The only way to get a decrypted copy would be to break into his PC
Web advertising networks have been providing the service of breaking into viewers' PCs for years.
CA-issued keys typically cost money
StartSSL issues individual S/MIME certificates without charge.
PGP is hardly common as it is, but it's likely more so than S/MIME.
Perhaps it's uncommon because its proponents have failed to give a clear answer to this question: If someone doesn't regularly fly to key signing parties, how should he get his PGP key signed into the strongly connected subset of the web of trust?
Tying a public key to your social media account is a good way to prove ownership without having to trust these notoriously dubious certification authorities.
You still have to trust DigiCert, the CA that signed the facebook.com certificate. That's on top of trusting Facebook, as you pointed out.
Does your TV have the necessary hardware and software to decode encrypted digital cable signals without having a piece of shit set top box that they charge you a rental fee for?
The cable company charges the subscriber to rent a CableCARD module even if the subscriber is not renting a set-top box.
County libraries near me are open until 6pm MWF
So how should someone who gets off work at 5:00 catch a bus there and have time to do any substantial self-education or search for a better job? Using the Internet only on Tuesday evenings and Thursday evenings isn't very helpful because potential employers who send a message on Friday morning usually expect a reply before Tuesday night.
along with all day Saturday
The county library branch near me is closed on Saturdays from late May through the end of August. (Source: acpl.info)
But does the U.S. government provide a means-tested subsidy for relocation using Greyhound buses, as a means of promoting interstate commerce when the supply and demand for labor happen to be in different states? That would be closer to "Obamacars".
