An Automated Cat Litter Box With DRM

crabbz Re:How hard is it...? (190 comments)

The problem is that the rules of English are backwards here.

John's = it belongs to John. it's != it belongs to "it".

Why that is, I don't know, but it's true. I assume it's to distinguish from "it is" and "belongs to it" because you don't have the same problem with "John is" being "John's".

An easy way to remember is that "his" and "her" don't have apostrophes either, just like "its".

Google Removing Ad-Blockers From Play

crabbz Re:Play store not the only source (337 comments)

Some apps from the play store require you to be signed into your google account to check their license. If you remove your google account from the device then after a few days the app will complain that it can't verify the license. I've had it happen a few times. Logging back into the play store, which adds the google account back, generally fixes it. I don't think it is true for all apps, looks like it is up to the developer if they want to check the license through google play or not. I don't know if removing the play store app itself has the same affect. I suspect things will work as long as you're logged into your google account.

Apple Kills a Kickstarter Project - Updated

crabbz Re:What IP is Apple using to stop this? (471 comments)

I'm wondering the same thing. If they can figure out how to supply power to the port why do they need a license? The whole thing is kind of sad.

National Geographic Getting Into Video Games

crabbz Re:Doomed to suck (35 comments)

In fact picking "Africa" and "Panda" sounds like attempts to cash in on that PS3 Africa game and the recent Kung-Fu Panda movie.

Actually, according to this article, it sounds like the Africa game IS the PS3 Afrika title.
