Three Low-Tech Hacks for Phones and Tablets

flydeep rnal battery like 10K mah Ravpower (286 comments)

I think swapping batteries is a pain, try using an external charger like Ravpower which has a 2A usb port for quick charging and can charge 3-4 cycles equivalent of S3/iphone. As for the extenders/arm .. they are pretty low tech and obvious to many folks. Thanks for the sharing thought though.

Firefox 8 20% Faster Than Firefox 5

flydeep Re:Great... yet another version of Firefox to supp (441 comments)

Is it just me or Firefox 5 seems to have more bugs than previous releases. There are some webpages that consistently hang with Firefox 5. I find myself gravitating more toward Chrome which works exceptionally well like how Firefox 3 was. Add to that small incentives that cloud printing which makes using Chrome more appealing.

Scientists Create a "Worth Saving" Index For Endangered Animals

flydeep are humans worth it? (259 comments)

It is surprising that we give a 'worth saving index' to other species but as a species, are humans worth saving if a situation arose? Agent Smith's quote from Matrix stands out in my mind .. "Agent Smith: I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. " from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0133093/quotes

Nokia N900 Hardware failure - USB port falling off

flydeep flydeep writes  |  more than 4 years ago

flydeep (923300) writes "Nokia's flagship device N900 is suffering a serious usb port design/manufacturing flaw. Apparently many users (~ 20% based on 450 users) are seeing their micro usb ports falling off their $540 devices, some as early as within 6 days of use. Although Nokia has acknowledged the issue in their support forums many weeks ago, their service centers are turning down customers and blaming the users mishandled their phone. This has been picked up many review sites recently, at engadget, here and, here . For a giant company trying to increase their sales in US, they are handling this issue very poorly. There are over 75+ pages discussion at maemo.org where users are venting out their frustration on this issue, very disheartening to see a beautiful open source based device given this treatment. The preliminary understanding is that they are using a surface mount for the usb port and is a serious design flaw, a blog user has documented this design flaw in detail ."
