Users Report Warping of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

Andrewkov Re: If you sit on a phone with your big fat arse (421 comments)

Yeah, and you can always trust the users. Like when they say "it got wet", which means they dropped it in the toilet. Or "it suddenly stopped working" which means they dropped it in the parking lot and a car ran over it.

Ask Slashdot: Is iOS 8 a Pig?

Andrewkov Re: Alright smart guy (504 comments)

Me too, on my 5S it seems the same or maybe a tiny bit faster. Actually the update seems pretty minor compared to previous major version number updates. I have had a few glitches, the auto-rotation has gotten stuck a couple of times which never happened before the update. And in the youtube app it's much harder to scroll forward and backwards in a video, but I'm not sure if this is due to an update in youtube or the iOS.

Andrewkov Re:Bad Panda (97 comments)

And they still haven't fixed the problem where when you are browsing photos in a busy group it jumps around and refreshes randomly so you keep losing your place.

How Flickr Is Courting the Next Generation of Photographers

Andrewkov Re:Whoosh (97 comments)

Well said. They put all their resources into screwing up the interface into an unholy mess, while never fixing obvious things like being able to follow discussion threads, which would actually help bolster a community.

Chinese Man Sues State-Owned Cell Phone Company For Blocking Google

Andrewkov Re:Good luck (78 comments)

Lots of Spanish words can be guessed at because they are similar to English. One notable exception is "Embarasada", it doesn't mean embarrassed, it means pregnant, so it can lead to some funny misunderstandings. Like, "why are you embarrased?" ... "I'm not, I'm pregnant!".

Microsoft Takes Down Slideshow-Building Tool After Getty Images Lawsuit

Andrewkov Re:Maybe we need an HTML tag for image/work copyri (81 comments)

I put my copyright info and website address in the EXIF data of all my images, actually all modern digital cameras can do this automatically.

In case anyone doesn't know about EXIF data, you may be surprised at the amount of data your phone is adding to every image you take with the phone's camera. GPS coordinates, time and date, phone make and model, etc.
