Comment Re:The biggest take away from this (Score 1) 157

My office associate has a Nexus 6 that is 3 years old and it still receives monthly firmware updates. I have an old Note 3 with cm on it and it still gets monthly updates. What is correct though is come third party android phones do not get "official" updates after 2 years or less.

Comment Re:Should add HuffOp and Slate to the banned list. (Score 0) 434

The Alt-right was created after the left and far left used the "white man" as a scapegoat for reality ie "we need to get off our arses and fix our own problems". So instead the far left decided it was far easier to blame the white man for everything even though there is no statistical proof of "white privilege". the result is the new alt-right who now make trolling the idiot left a sport and the left being dumb arses refuse to "get into any type of intelligent dialog" and just sit there screaming "hate speech". So if AppNexus wants to be sucked into the "anti free speech" black hole that the far left have created go for it, enjoy losing money while denying part of the community their free speech. In fact Im betting there will be another advertising company happy to take the money you have turned down within a week.

Comment Re: Dear Apple fans: (Score 3, Informative) 471

actually the ridiculous cheap labour in china stereotype doesn't exist any more, in fact wages in china now exceed USD$5 per hour. So why is the USD$5 per hour number significant, well when wages hit USD$5 per hour it becomes viable to replace the worker with a robot. Now this raises the question, does a robot in the USA perform any better or worse than in china, the answer is the robot doesn't care thus it doesn't matter were the robot resides. So now the only major differences for apple are infrastructure costs and taxes.

Comment Junk patents (Score 1) 28

From what I am reading a massive majority of china's patents ore domestic and hardly any of them have been reviewed or tested. There is a massive amount of corruption within the chinese patent system with patent legal offices openly allowing what is now termed as "junk patents" though that have no innovative value (did someone say corruption). It is only when you look at how many "international patents" china registers that you realise that the 1 million number is all smoke and mirrors (pretty much how I view the whole chinese economy).

Comment Pot Meet Kettle (Score 1) 171

This is a great example of the Pot (Google) calling the Kettle black. Here we have Google funneling billions in on line transactions via tax havens so as to avoid paying taxes. But if Mr Jill/Joe average tries to do the same "OH know, lets go to war with our "paying" customers for doing the same". I'm not surprised google did a U-turn on this decision because pain in the rear customers like me will point out that Google does exactly the same every day (and are now being forced by some countries to pay back taxes).

and hello safe zones were having to actually think outside of your comfort zone is now disallowed. This is one of the reasons that Trump got into power. People are sick of being told what is right and wrong to discuss thanks to the looney left. You can't even talk about Islam or any other ideology now without being called a racist. You can be a gay, jewish conservative with a black boyfriend (Im talking Milo) and the left will call you an anti gay, sexist, racist anti semite (I shit you not). Guess what happened to Milo's twitter account, yes the left leaning loons now in control of Twitter kicked Milo of twitter for being a anti gay, racist. Seriously how obvious do you want it to be that twitter is now run by the looney left. Well the good news is thanks to the looney left and the lack of open discussion people are now leaving twitter.

Comment Political Elites (Score 1) 352

The political elites don't like it when the sheeple find out how bent and broken the system actually is. If the system was not so bent then the emails would have done any damage but would have highlighted how good it is. But instead the exposed emails show how the elites and the bent corporate financiers are giving each other blow jobs then the next day raping an pillaging your average tax payer.

The stupid thing about all this is the computers he is fooling are technically insider trading anyway. Basically the big financial traders computers insert orders based on incoming orders so as to shaft Mr and Mrs Smith who are placing orders via their home PC.Thus they are using information not available to the general public and using that to inside trade your average american tax payer. Basically Navinder saw the scam and realised the scam itself had a hole in the logic and thus he screwed the people screwing everyone else. Now the political puppets don't like it when anyone but their backers screws the public thus they want to throw him in jail so they can keep the scam going.
