TheClarkster Re:Pen input? (132 comments)

Just did some searching, some places say it is an active stylus with pressure sensitivity, but nothing about the quality of it.

TheClarkster Re:Pen input? (132 comments)

It does come with an active stylus. I can't find any mention of pressure sensitivity though.

TheClarkster Re:!news (162 comments)

Actually, Apple accidentally published an older buggy version Google had submitted for testing. It was swapped out after about 2 hours with the release version.

In Canada we have ePost. It is run by Canada Post and companies can send out bills, paystubs, T4's, etc electronically, all in the same place.

Google Cars Drive Themselves, In Traffic

TheClarkster Re:On US 101? Irresponsible (293 comments)

So you are saying that driving instructors are also just as irresponsible as they are taking out 16 year olds who have never driven before? Endangering the other drivers! Some of those cars they use don't even have a brake on the instructor's side, let alone a steering wheel. So much more irresponsible compared to Google's car it seems.

Infected Androids Run Up Big Texting Bills

TheClarkster Pretty sure this can't happen to my phone. (279 comments)

To be infected you have to go into settings and approve non-market installation, browse to a Chinese site, download their market installer, install it, find the Steamy Windows app, say okay to the permission window where it says it can send text messages that may cost you money, and then open it? I'd say Android is still pretty safe.

Windows Browser Ballot: the Winners and the Losers

TheClarkster Re:IE still lives on your PC (134 comments)

Windoze, M$... Though you may have some good points, writing it that way invalidates any relevance you may have in my eyes. All I see is an overweight balding linux lover in his basement, taking his anger out on Microsoft. Why do you say IE, when you could be saying I€?

Android Passes iPhone In US Market Share

TheClarkster Re:It's funny (550 comments)

You should look into sending your phone back in for warranty or something. But if the manual states it should be rebooted, they may not consider it a flaw. :( My phone has an uptime of about 4 months now. No issues at all. Stock Android. It's the Motorola hardware and software that is horrible.

Google Unveils Android 'Honeycomb' Tablet

TheClarkster Re:Apple-biased much? (187 comments)

To rephrase what you said in even simpler terms, "Google's Gmail app looks like Google's Gmail app? What a shock!" And the app page looked Apple like probably because it used those new fancy 'icons' Apple invented.

FCC Investigating Google Street View Wi-Fi Data Collection

TheClarkster Re:Why? WHY??? (122 comments)

The software they used was had a log of the traffic data. They did not know about it, they didn't plan to collect it. And the moment they found out about it they told everyone. If they had just silently deleted it no one would have known. But Google felt it was best to be open about their mistake.

Google Admits To Collecting Emails and Passwords

TheClarkster Re:And whose fault is it, really? (157 comments)

They knew exactly what was in it, and when they found out they immediately released a statement and told everyone. They said they already fixed the problem and wouldn't capture that data anymore, and that they were deleting everything already collected. Then suddenly governments everywhere were saying, don't you dare delete it, we need that as evidence to sue you and further our political careers!
