Comment Re:Another new headphone connector! (Score 1) 223

20 Bucks?
The Lightning to 3.5mm-jack Adapter from apple is 9 Dollars.
11 Dollars for Headphones would be extremly cheap and you'd have accordingly bad sound quality.
Currently, EarPods with Lightning Connectors cost 29$, which is already 9$ more than you proposed.

So what's the news here?
Also, saying that people wouldn't try reaching 911 is WRONG. The linked article states that it outright wouldn't be POSSIBLE for those percentages to get a call taker. It's not that people "give up". It's that people can't reach the emergency line!

Unrelated: Why can't I tag something as !story anymore? Slashdot is getting worse every day.

Yeah. Because 100% of porn is illegal child pornography.
Let's be real here:
Having a storage device doesn't mean that the state needs to know what's stored on it.
Having a storage device doesn't mean that the content is pornographic and/or illegal.
Having a storage device doesn't mean that you're a criminal.

And yet you get treated as such.

Submission + - Lenovo will put Microsoft bloatware on their Android phones to avoid patent tax (zdnet.com)

LichtSpektren writes: In a deal between Microsoft and Lenovo, the latter's Android phones (and their subsidiary Motorola's as well) will begin shipping with Microsoft bloatware, including at least Office, OneDrive, and Skype.

For those who have not been following the story, for the past nine years Microsoft has been using their patents on the FAT file system and other technologies to extract somewhere between $5 and $15 per Android device sold.
