fsck-beta Re:Simply solution (193 comments)

If you don't use a Samsung Android phone, I commend your spirit of adventure. It's not worth the hassle for me.

Really? This attitude basically negates all that is wonderful about Android.

Comcast Turning Chicago Homes Into Xfinity Hotspots

fsck-beta Re:So what happens (253 comments)

fsck-beta Re:Ouya just isn't compelling (134 comments)

Sure, but strings representing the next-gen AppleTV have already showed up in iOS builds. Controller support is there. The rest is less concrete :)
