German Data Protection Expert Warns Against Using iPhone5S Fingerprint Function

dmesg0 Re:Also it stands to reason (303 comments)

For the last 12 years US Custom and Border services take the fingerprints of any non-american entering the USA, and share them with NSA. Now it's time to get the fingerprints of all the Americans as well.

EU Proposes To Fit Cars With Speed Limiters

dmesg0 All human drivers should be banned (732 comments)

All the cars should be automatic. Then all the fatal accidents will be caused by bad programmers instead of bad drivers.

EU Proposes To Fit Cars With Speed Limiters

dmesg0 Re:Amazing idea (732 comments)

And it will most probably warn you before doing that, so you can do it yourself. No worries here.

EU Proposes To Fit Cars With Speed Limiters

dmesg0 Amazing idea (732 comments)

It will cost just a hundred billion euros and will make 2% of the fatal accidents non-fatal, only crippling.

What percentage of the software you use regularly is open source?

Iranian Space Official: Photo Shows Wrong Monkey

dmesg0 Wrong monkey again (89 comments)

The right monkey, named "Ahmadinijad" (Persian for "very ugly ape, even by ape standards"), was too busy hanging innocent apes of homo muslimus genus, and had to stay on earth.

Raspberry Pi vs. Cheap Android Dongle: Embarrassment of (Cheap) Riches

dmesg0 Re:Compare to RK3066 (233 comments)

You probably have a bad unit (either hardware or software). My iMito MX1 is rock stable in android. XBMC is not stable yet, there are occasional FCs, but it closes gracefully without any trouble to the OS.

Raspberry Pi vs. Cheap Android Dongle: Embarrassment of (Cheap) Riches

dmesg0 Re:Compare to RK3066 (233 comments)

I usually buy stuff on Amazon. Please check what Raspberry Pi costs on Amazon and then compare to Amazon's MK808 price. I checked a few sites like Adafruit that offer Raspberry PI for $35+cheap shipping but they don't have it in stock

Don't forget that you have to add a case (~$10) and wi-fi adapter if you need wireless connectivity, while in in mk808/iMito it is included. No ethernet though, but I didn't need it anyway.

Raspberry Pi vs. Cheap Android Dongle: Embarrassment of (Cheap) Riches

dmesg0 Re:Compare to RK3066 (233 comments)

Even if you ship by regular registered mail (e.g. by HK post) and not by private companies like DHL/Fedex/UPS?

Raspberry Pi vs. Cheap Android Dongle: Embarrassment of (Cheap) Riches

dmesg0 Compare to RK3066 (233 comments)

I would rather compare to RK3066-based miniPCs. It's a dual-core platform with very good performance and has a number of mini-PCs based on it (MK808, UG808, iMITO etc). Android is a joy to use on this platform, and linux is under development.
The price is 50-60$ including shipping, which is not a lot more than 35$+shipping

First Photos and Video of Raspberry Pi Model A

dmesg0 Re:Why? (125 comments)

I don't understand the point of getting Raspberry Pi with its ancient CPU. For ~50$ (including shipping from China) you can get mk808, which has:

1GB RAM/8GB flash
Dual core 1.2GHz Cortex A9 CPU (RK3066)
MicroSD/USB/HDMI/Built-in Wi-Fi

Android Options Mean "Best" Browsers Might Surprise You

dmesg0 Re:Apple allows other browsers now (251 comments)

It's not the real Chrome, just UIWebView skin. But you probably know that.

The Earliest Known Dino?

dmesg0 Re:Hmmmm? (69 comments)

Well, you might have some false memories. The only religious wars I did participate in until now were related to Linux vs. other OSes or Android vs. iOS etc.
Actually my answer was somewhat poor attempt at humor - you ranted about a discussion completely unrelated to the original subject, so I answered with a post completely unrelated to yours. Never mind.
But I do think that all religions and deities are stupid and bad for humankind (or in slightly unscientific terms - they suck), and I'm not afraid to offend anyone by saying so. Yes, in RL as well. And I don't care about all the flamebait moderations I'll receive for it.
