Why My LG Optimus Cellphone Is Worse Than It's Supposed To Be

GweeDo A fool and his money... (291 comments)

T-mobile's site says that phone is $324 full retail price. You can get a Moto G for $199 or a Moto X for $299. If you bought that phone you simply didn't do any research.

Android Needs a Simulator, Not an Emulator

GweeDo An already solved problem (167 comments)

I am also and Android developer and this problem is already solved. Android Studio + ADB (included with Android Studio) + Genymotion. You get native speed, lots of sensors to emulate and can even install the gapps packages if you need to test against those libraries (I use them for Chromecast support).

Starbucks Phone App Stores Password Unencrypted

GweeDo Android seems ok (137 comments)

I didn't spend much time on it, but this doesn't seem to be the case on Android. First of all, they never store things outside of /data/data/com.starbucks.mobilecard. So only a root application would be able to read things. Secondly, the main sqlite database they seem to be storing things in is encrypted.

I am running CyanogenMod 7 (latest RC from Slayher) in a non-LTE area and have my LTE radio disabled. The battery life on the thing is still sad.

HTC Unlocks Its Own Phones

GweeDo Re:Wait...what? Huh?? (145 comments)

Most people believe that Google purchased Motorola Mobility for their patent portfolio to protect against the likes of Oracle and Apple since they are currently so sue happy. That has nothing to do with locked or unlocked bootloaders.

HTC Unlocks Its Own Phones

GweeDo Wait...what? Huh?? (145 comments)

"Google, which has been trying to lock Android down more, probably doesn't see it that way."

The only phones that Google "produces" are the Nexus line. These have unlockable bootloaders already. Don't get me wrong, I am happy HTC is doing this, but that statement about Google is just silly and wrong.

Ah, this will be the first NASA ship that won't be at the Cosmosphere. They have Mercury, Gemini and Apollo Capsules. They have a few Russian capsules (not sure which exactly). They have an actual Titan rocket even. To bad :(

Does 3D Make Your Head Happy Or Ache?

GweeDo Launch Day Buyer (281 comments)

I picked up the 3DS on launch day along with Super Street Fighter 4, Pilot Wings and Super Monkey Ball. For myself I have no issue sitting down for 45 minutes+ with any of these titles and feeling fine afterwards. I will note that in both Pilot Wings and Super Monkey Ball I can't have the 3D slider all the way up. If I do the images start to cross and it messes with my eyes. This doesn't happen in Super Street Fighter 4, so I am not 100% sure what the 3D slider is doing differently between these titles.

I will also note that I have no issues with headaches or motion sickness from 3D movies at a theater or in home with active shutter glasses.
