Eric Schmidt and Entourage Pay a Call On Cuba

bananaquackmoo Bad summary (190 comments)

It is NOT impossible to LEGALLY visit Cuba. My friend did it in a study abroad program during college in the US. That said, they don't make it easy.

bananaquackmoo Re:test drive a simple problem... (466 comments)

I'd mod you up if I could. This is the best way to try out new languages. If, for example, you're looking into web based languages, you could use a tool like todomvc.com. They have tutorials for solving the same problem using different languages.

bananaquackmoo Re:17 seems high (340 comments)

I agree. I wonder if its truly 17 channels or if its 17+ shows. I don't really care about channels as much as I do about specific shows (of which personally I watch less than 17 shows).

Do you honestly think they DO tell the banks what they do for a living? No. The banks look at who the paychecks come from.

bananaquackmoo Not News (52 comments)

Google's Definition of 'Open'

bananaquackmoo Re:Works for me (168 comments)

That's not an Android issue, its a Verizon issue. It's the main reason that I ditched Verizon. GSM phones are the most open phones.
