Motorola changed its act after Google sunk its claws into them. The current lineup is stripped of most bloatware and many of the power optimization strategies for lollipop have already been implemented in them. This is an issue with ATT's crappy customization job. The unlocked phones with pristine firmware work fine.

Congress has abdicated its responsibility to serve the public interest by openly declaring that it will oppose any initiative by the President just for spite. It's no wonder that he's forced to seek alternative solutions to get anything done.

It's not possible. The electronics on board have a limited lifespan due to their exposure to ionizing radiation. You can't make densely integrated electronics last indefinitely. Going back to the more robust low density electronics used on the long lived space probes would be impractical on a complex manned spacecraft.

I'm sure other Swedish media like TV and movies have a lack of female characters portrayed as the primary agents of action in their storylines. I would also bet that there is far more female nudity on display in these media than male. To be fair these forms of sexism should also be stamped out.

Mod parent up.

The posters flash is almost certainly a fake if it's a mass market brand. Even if it's a generic Chinese brand, it most likely uses the same low-grade flash used in the fakes. I would not risk my data on these devices as the durability over the course of normal use is a big unknown since they aren't backed by a company doing extensive characterization.

If God had a beard, he'd be a UNIX programmer.
