No, vendors and carries dragging their feet as usual is what kills Lollipop. Like my good old HTC One S which stopped receiving updates after a year from release.

US Army Could Waive Combat Training For Hackers

qbast Re:It would do them good. (223 comments)

Hackers seem to come it two shapes: grossly overweight, constantly snacking one and skinny kid looking like bag of bones. The second type could be brought up to speed in relatively short time (2-3 months of quite light exercise) - they might even like it. But the first kind ... just forget it.

qbast Re:Security? (152 comments)

Right. Better send some CIA agents to foil this fiendish plot. Not sure what plot it is, but if they torture Russians enough, they will surely confess to something.

About 40% of World Population Online, 90% of Offliners In Developing Countries

qbast Re: Developing (45 comments)

Look kids, SJW bot that runs his potty mouth as soon as he encounters a trigger word.
Of course developing countries are better off, that's the whole damn point of developing. The question is if the report, in the name of appeasing PC morons like you, also included self-destructing countries like Central Africa Republic and Somalia in the same group, which would likely skew the numbers badly.

Well documented differences between male and female brain. Distinct differences are visible in fetus at about 26 week of pregnancy - this is driven by different hormonal levels which is again well known difference and accounts for quite a lot of physical and behavioural changes.
