Which Android Devices Sacrifice Battery-Life For Performance?

carlhaagen Re:all (108 comments)

I get between 4 and 5 days (which includes ~4-5 hours of total use) per charge on my 3 years old iPhone 4S, with 3G enabled. If I play and surf a lot more the time obviously drop; if I don't do much more than handle calls on it a charge gets me one week.

I took this screenshot yesterday for an "Android friend" who refused to believe any smartphone would reach into a 2nd day on a charge: http://i.imgur.com/YxZjboT.jpg

It may be that the yield or the quality/specs/durability/etc. didn't meet the request.

DARPA Delving Into the Black Art of Super Secure Software Obfuscation

carlhaagen Re:security through obscurity (124 comments)

There are different aspects of "security through obscurity". In this case I don't think obfuscation equals obscurity, as the software is still available in its whole form. But I agree with you that this is a pretty weak effort.

Stallman Does Slides -- and Brevity -- For TEDx

carlhaagen Re:No thanks (326 comments)

To me, "free society" means being able to have and express that opinion and perspective without people like you blaming them for being idiots just because they don't side with your view of the world. Think about what you said and its implications for a second.

...s-video/composite/audio input - almost all of them, even the "cheap-o" $20 models, have these inputs. Simply record to MPEG-2 and from there convert to f.e. h.264 in .mp4 using Handbrake (http://handbrake.fr) or similar.

Did you use technology to get into mischief as a child?

carlhaagen Fairly often, but nothing serious: (231 comments)

From 1991 to 1995 I was what was called an "elite trader" in the Amiga warez scene, slinging cracked software (as well as plenty of other non-commercial software) between BBSes around the globe. I never paid a dime for a single minute I spent online, using only calling cards that were provided to me by the group I was a member of. Organizations such as the BSA would gladly blame my sort for being responsible for millions after millions of pounds, deutschmarks and dollars of economical losses, but I still feel that I never caused anyone any harm.

Reported iCloud Hack Leaks Hundreds of Private Celebrity Photos

carlhaagen Re:"complained about the service" (336 comments)

What she complained about was that it kept reminding her about backing her iPhone up; she wanted it to do so automatically, which she didn't know can be done by flipping a single setting in iOS' iCloud control panel.

Reported iCloud Hack Leaks Hundreds of Private Celebrity Photos

carlhaagen Re:Where are these photos? (336 comments)

No. Stop talking out of your butt now. By default they do not end up on your iCloud account. For this to happen in OS X you need to explicitly 1) set up an iCloud account, and 2) enable automatic iCloud backups of "default" folders.

New Nail Polish Alerts Wearers To Date Rape Drugs

carlhaagen Re:I wish we didn't need something like this (595 comments)

C'mon, Travis... that's just making weak assumptions based on us having different opinions, unlike my statement based on the original poster's attitude, or me commenting on something else based on reality, like f.e. saying I like your receding hairline and your non-refracting hipster glasses.

New Nail Polish Alerts Wearers To Date Rape Drugs

carlhaagen Re:I wish we didn't need something like this (595 comments)

That's a very worrying attitude considering what kind of light you're trying to pose yourself in with your leading post. Why exactly do you feel that people owe you a name in order to have the right to criticize you, and what makes you feel you have the right to accuse them of being "date rapists" and call them pieces of shit when they don't pay this imagined debt to you?

Ask Slashdot: What Do You Wish You'd Known Starting Out As a Programmer?

carlhaagen Awkwardly career-centric question (548 comments)

I started programming as a kid at the age of 10. This question just doesn't apply to me at all. No such thing as "career" etc. were relevant to me at that point.
