8% of Android Apps Are Leaking Private Information

kregg Re:Have we learned nothing... (159 comments)

All applications with ads ask for those permissions. They don't want to advertise something you can't buy in your own country.

If you don't want that then buy an application with no ads - simple.

kregg Re:Will it run Linux? (53 comments)

No it will run Windows and have a battery life of 5 minutes (enough to show the desktop and start bar) and the weight of the table will help you build muscle tone.

Cisco To Challenge iPad With Cius 'Business Tablet'

kregg Good move (217 comments)

Cisco want to be more than just routing and switching and need to stay relevant with all the new ways/devices which connect to the corporate network/cloud. I think this is a good move for them.

If this device is:

Reasonably Priced
Easy to buy
Easy to use
Gets the tick from Security

then - I want.

Bing Loses More Money As Microsoft Chases Google

kregg Bing in by stealth (317 comments)

I wonder if Bing will find its place in companies desktop SOE through the transition between Windows XP and Windows 7. Most companies will lock down the desktops pretty tight, so depending on how your IT department feels you may not get a choice of what search engine you use.
There may even be incentives to do this... I hope not.

Why Has No One Made a Great Gaming Phone?

kregg Reason: Power (303 comments)

Games require alot of power and communication with cellular networks do too. At the moment, you don't care if your DS or PSP runs out of battery but it is a bit more of an issue with a phone which you may need in an emergency.

Bing To Become Default iPhone Search?

kregg Re:Big Battle (463 comments)

1.I judged Bing by doing a search on the word Linux and at the time it came up with the top result for a linux vs MS Server page on Microsoft. Ok so they fixed that but still. How can I trust them to not hide things from me.

2. Yes. Have you see the Windows 7 party video on YouTube, or have you used Windows Mobile? All very cringe worthy. Bing is just a copy of Google with a fancy background.

3. I would have more respect for Microsoft if they didn't always try to lock you in to their products e.g Sharepoint, Office, C# etc.

4. Hard to say....
