Android 5.0 'Lollipop' vs. iOS 8: More Similar Than Ever

Redbehrend Re: It's all about the haters (178 comments)

Android is cheaper hardware and app wise... Android can do 100s of things that ios can't. If gives you more freedom, options, carriers and companies. I had apple for years and I don't miss it at all. Can I afford apple? Yes I just choose not to overpay.... I understend why people like apple cut its trendy with the tech impaired. Just like living with the Kardashians....

AT&T To "Pause" Gigabit Internet Rollout Until Net Neutrality Is Settled

Redbehrend Re: if only (308 comments)

Att has been great in orange county, Ca. We were stuck with Cox for so long with the old big crappy boxes that die every 6 months and lose your recordings. They also give you more bang for buck because they are half the price. I'm no fanboy as I'm waiting for Google fiber but anything is better than these old school ripoff isp companies. Cox doesn't even have good Internet anymore it's always partly down for maintenance. You have to pick the lesser of two evils right now....

Redbehrend Re: What's the Difference? (102 comments)

I agree I worked at a company with a certified "oracle" expert that got paid big bucos and man was his code sloppy. Since the free ones don't troubleshoot or debug like Oracle you actually got to plan and do it right the first time lol Not sayin that's everyone...

Cyanogen Inc. Turns Down Google, Seeing $1 Billion Valuation

Redbehrend Re: Google just pissy (107 comments)

Cyanogen should have taken it. Other than old device support they are lacking... Google could cut them off when they feel free to... IMO Cyanogen has been going down since the whole tmobile deal. Stable updates come slower, I've had bat problems with recent builds and they don't support internal firmware of many devices. I can go on XDA and get a awesome rom anytime that includes firmware that works with device special features and get all my extra features.

Don't get me wrong I love the guys.... I think they are starting to get greedy and I myself since years ago have seen a decline in their product. They will get their evaluation one day and the name will die they want to sell out. They donate all the time but the fact they try to force you to pay for official apps just rubs me wrong.

Google To Require As Many As 20 of Its Apps Preinstalled On Android Devices

Redbehrend Re: It's sad (427 comments)

The reason you have to sign into YouTube has to do with laws and not purely Google. They fought it as long as they could and even posted how the change was forced and one of the laws was having a birthday for certain content.

Google To Require As Many As 20 of Its Apps Preinstalled On Android Devices

Redbehrend Re: It's sad (427 comments)

It's not abusing anything Google apps work better and use less resources than the competitors which is 1 reason why they are doing this.

One of the biggest problems with android is manufactures and providers are trying to replace Google core apps with crap that crashes, uses resources and costs more.

This doesn't mean all but most, download a rom without manufacture / carrier crap and only Google crap and your battery life about doubles.

The Great Lightbulb Conspiracy

Redbehrend Re: I dunno about LEDs, but CFLs don't last (602 comments)

In Cali CFL' and LED's easily pay for themselves and if you buy a decent brand where you can register them they'll replace them for free.

If you buy the cheapest than expect them not to last.... Make sure all your fancy switches, dimmers and detectors are built for CFL or LED. Make sure the CFL / LED bulbs are built for its function. Examples would be outside bulbs, dimmable bulbs and they even have heavy on/off load bulbs. On top of all this if you house has horrible wiring you need to fix it or use the heavy duty ones that are built better. You can get the best deals online as hardware stores always ask a premium.

My friend has a 5 and with ios8 his bat dies faster, his apps run slower and we are thinking about factory restoring it to see if it fixes the issue.. No wonder they gave the new phones more bat life haha.

Redbehrend Re: Jailbreak (336 comments)

The lock down means you must use apples program which means apple gets the transaction fees lol This is the main point behind it... nfc is not a complicated technology... and has other uses other than payments as devices including blackberry, windows and android has shown.
