Avoiding Red Lights By Booking Ahead

DaleCooper82 Re:Already implemented here (299 comments)

Yeah, we have the same as well. With a minor upgrade recently that checks your speed and if you driving over speed limit it puts there red light right in front of you. Great for ecology, traffic fluence, safety... you name it!

Mind you, speed limit is enforced with no tolerance so even at 3AM driving 2 km/h over limit assures red light. Is rather bullying us then helping.

Eric Schmidt Doesn't Think Android Is Fragmented

DaleCooper82 Re:Eric Schmidt, master of non-answers (431 comments)

It's probably not the developers' fault, I think there is universal agreement that Android is much harder to develop for.

Citation needed. Really!

Nexus Prime, And Ice Cream Sandwich, Go For a Video Tour

DaleCooper82 Re:The one touch camera is going to be abused ... (246 comments)

Yes but this is different matter here. One of the best Android out-of-the-box features is that you can lock it so that noone else can use that unless s/he knows your PIN/gesture/passwd/whatever. When the phone is locked, not even HW camera button works - and rightly so IMHO. Having soft camera button on the unlock screen kills it.

Furthermore I wonder if the camera launched by this soft button will still have that icon to get you to Gallery and browse all pictures taken in past ...

Native Apps Are Dead, Long Live Native Apps

DaleCooper82 Offline! (168 comments)

For me, beside platform native look & feel, the beauty of native app is ability to read/work with info, news, etc. while offline. Try working with any of these web apps while on trans Atlantic flight.

Google Uncovers China-Based Password Collection Campaign

DaleCooper82 Re:credit cards have a feature (186 comments)

maybe it's time for email providers to do the same: "no logging into my account from foreign ip blocks unless i tell you its ok"

How do you tell them once you have gone travelling abroad without telling them because you forgot/had no time/whatever reason? What happens if you connect to some wifi that has internet connection routed via foreign gateway (think some mega corp)?

Many More Android Apps Leaking User Data

DaleCooper82 Re:default permissions (299 comments)

Sorry, but I beg to differ. To get access to IMEI etc. you need READ_PHONE_STATE permission. To WRITE to SD card you need WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE. OTOH it is true that any app can read SD card content without any additional permissions.

Russia Recalls Modern Warfare 2

DaleCooper82 Re:Not so fast.. (548 comments)

Beyond that, one of the chief reasons that Germany was initially so successful was because of Stalin's purges of the Army in the 1930s had eliminated a good deal of talent in the Red Army.

True, on top of that they had bilateral treaty not to attack each other and Stalin was thinking everything was cool.
