Custom Android ROM Developers Get OTA Update Capabilities Like Carriers

ahow628 Re:Incremental updates? (50 comments)

Sense is a bloated beast. Sense roms are about 550, as I said. AOSP (CM10) is 150. HTC is the worst.

Custom Android ROM Developers Get OTA Update Capabilities Like Carriers

ahow628 Re:Incremental updates? (50 comments)

I usually wipe once every week or two on nightlies unless I'm getting a lot of force closes or reboots. For me, the downloads are the biggest time (and battery) suck. I'm not on Sense on my Evo LTE anymore, but the base rom is about 550mb. That is huge.

ahow628 Incremental updates? (50 comments)

I would be highly interested if I could download incremental updates (patches?). Who wants to download 70-600mb of data for every nightly?

Ron Paul Wants To End the Federal Student Loan Program

ahow628 Re:Subsidies inflate pricing. (1797 comments)

Lots of rent seeking. I know a number of people who would have, a priori, been better off just heading straight into the workforce or finding a trade to do. I also know a number of people who got a degree and went into another field, either by choice or by circumstance (eg, not finding a job), and could have ended up the same place without college. I think in either situation, these people may have thought different about their choice to go to school based on the availability (or lack there of) of school loans.

Sprint Details Shift To LTE

ahow628 Re:What happens to Clear? (183 comments)

Clear actually owns the Wimax network. Sprint leases spectrum from Clear. Nice little hedge they had there.

Sprint Details Shift To LTE

ahow628 Re:uhh... (183 comments)

The submitter is wrong. They said they would sell Wimax devices through 2012. They will mostly likely support Wimax for far long than that.

They asked him in the cease and desist to remove the proprietary Google apps (Gmail, Reader, or whatever) from the package. They are available as a separate flashable zip.

Does Your PC Really Need a SysRq Button Anymore?

ahow628 Re:What about CTRL and Fc (806 comments)

I've pried the Fn key off of every Lenovo I've ever owned. I work in spreadsheets constantly so Ctrl+arrow, Ctrl+C, and Ctrl+V are my top three short cuts to use. I tried and tried to find a way to remap, but in the end, popping the key off completely worked best.

Ask Slashdot: Book on managing Gen Y'ers

ahow628 ahow628 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

ahow628 (1290052) writes "I'm working with a client that is an operations manager at a company that sells tech gear. Mostly they have a bunch of seasoned sales guys (mid-30s to mid-50s), but they just hired their first Gen Y kid. I would love a great book (or website) that focus on managing Gen Y'ers and it would be a bonus if it included comparisons and contrasts to Gen X since the operations manager is Gen X."
