The problem with the Galaxy Nexus is that Samsung are in charge of a updates for a lot of the variants of this phone. There has been some debate on whether it should be called a true "nexus" phone at all.

Ravadill Re:I actually liked ICS better than Jelly Bean (124 comments)

Try Quickpic (free on google play) not only is it the best image viewer I've used, it also has it's own set as wallpaper feature that lets you crop images as a standard rectangle, or you can use Nova launcher (also free on play) which will let you set wallpapers as the standard T or as a square.

Shakedowns To Fix Negative Online Reviews

Ravadill Re:Best Countermeasures (179 comments)

The problem with step 1 is that the average person no longer trusts a major sites opinion any more than a crappy review site. If the result shows in Google's first page a lot of people will take this as meaning it is legitimate, and generally even one or two negative reviews can make people start to ignore the 100's of positive ones. That is what a lot of these review farming sites seem to rely on, and most seem to manage to be in the top 5 search results for a lot of products, usually by linking or copying several legit reviews as well as spamming their own.

Roundabout Revolution Sweeping US

Ravadill Re:Really bad idea. (1173 comments)

Our local government tried to reduce peak hour traffic by getting businesses in the CBD area to implement flexible hours (i.e. I believe the suggested start hours were anywhere between 6am and 10am, instead of the usual fixed 8 or 9am start), somehow all it did was stretch our peak hour out, instead of deadlock from 7am-8am we now have it from 6am-10am.
