Ask Slashdot: Does Europe Have Better Magazines Than the US?

Catnaps Re:Future Publishing (562 comments)

Ah, Future Publishing. I had a huge stack of Amiga Format magazines a few years ago that I dumped due to serious lack of space. That was a well-produced magazine if ever I saw one.

It has the best healthcare money can buy because you all pay through the frigging nose for it. Medical insurance over there is a joke- you're insured? Hokai, time to double (if not triple) the price- no worries, you're not paying for it, right?

I think you might want to revise your working-out. You're kinda dropping a zero here and there.

Android Dev Demonstrates CarrierIQ Phone Logging Software On Video

Catnaps Re:But is the data actually transmitted anywhere? (322 comments)

Just because you don't have proof that the card skimmer on the local ATM isn't sending data back to its installers, doesn't mean it's not. It has the potential to, and it's designed to do exactly that- which should be enough for CIQ to be harpooned with all due haste.

Android Dev Demonstrates CarrierIQ Phone Logging Software On Video

Catnaps Re:I have (322 comments)

My Legend had a locked bootloader, so did my Sensation. Emphasis on past tense, because you can unlock them quite easily with some help from XDA Devs. My Sensation was literally; "run batch file, wait 3 minutes and watch it reboot a few times, check bootloader: S-OFF. Done."

Catnaps Not found on stock Desire HD (322 comments)

I just checked a Desire HD we have here at work- bought in the UK a year ago, SIM-free, totally stock. No trace of CIQ in running applications. Maybe this is indeed US-only, or perhaps carrier-branded-only.

Android Dev Demonstrates CarrierIQ Phone Logging Software On Video

Catnaps Re:I have (322 comments)

If you need root for these things, you may as well just grab a custom ROM to go along with it which has CIQ removed (well, most devs remove it anyway). I know my Sensation third-party ROM (ARHD 4.1.x) doesn't have CIQ anywhere in it, I've checked.
After all, flashing a ROM after rooting is a really small step in terms of difficulty and then you're totally free of CIQ.

Is Apple Pushing Away Professionals?

Catnaps Re:silly (556 comments)

Actually, quite a lot of DJs such as Armin van Buuren use a Macbook while travelling around for that specific purpose- work. I think he uses Logic on the go but I might be wrong.
