Jobs Wanted To Destroy Android

rocket97 Re:Android dong a good job of destroying itself (988 comments)

What was low quality of it? Don't like it, change it! You are not forced to use the stock interface on an Android phone, there are tons of custom interfaces out there.

What didn't "look or work" quite right? Once again, you can customize the way your phone looks, but what didn't work? Don't give the lame answer of "Everything" because both you and the rest of the /. community know that is a lame cop out when you can't think of anything. I'm not trying to say that everything works perfectly and Android is full of unicorns and rainbows. I am just curious if it is part of the actual Android system or if it is a 3rd party application that you downloaded to the phone.

Maybe I am just unique here but of the 8 people that I work with that used an iPhone 1 year ago 7 of them switched to Android after I let them use my phone and they say they are never looking back. The 1 person that has not switched is a self proclaimed "Apple fanboy" and buys every single product that Apple releases.

AT&T and Verizon LTE Networks Compared

rocket97 Re:Are these tests really comparable? (116 comments)

IIRC when the Thunderbolt first came out and no one was on the Verizon network people were getting 80Mb+ down and 20Mb+ up. I know with my Bionic I am averaging 30Mb down and 15Mb up on Verizon LTE.

Symantec Finds Server Containing 44 Million Stolen Gaming Credentials

rocket97 Re:Hey you guys (146 comments)

One of my co-workers was giving a presentation once (he is a self proclaimed computer expert in every facet), and he asked us "how do I make this power point presentation full screen?". We replied Alt-F4. He did it and said "hmm that is weird", and restarted power point and pressed Alt-F4 again... after attempting it 5 times he gave up and said "Oh well I guess we will just do the presentation like this".

Symantec Finds Server Containing 44 Million Stolen Gaming Credentials

rocket97 Re:I must be new here (146 comments)

I cant say for other games, but for World of Warcraft, they sell the in game items for in game currency, and then turn around and sell the in game currency for actual real currency. There are several websites set up that sell "X gold for $y".

Secure Communication Comes To Android

rocket97 Re:Less useful (150 comments)

Ok, how many people do you know that have Android phones?


It is kind of funny, I was on a flight about a month ago and I was sitting in the 4th row (of coach). When we landed I heard a symphony of "DROID" as every single person in my row and the 3 rows in front of me all had Motorola Droids and none of us knew each other.

Bill To Ban All Salt In Restaurant Cooking

rocket97 I don't support the bill (794 comments)

I don't support the bill, but I do think that restaurant food has way too much salt in it. I recently went on a diet and lost over 100 lbs. During this diet I cut out all the added salt from everything I ate, and stopped eating salty stuff. After I reached my goal weight I went to a few different restaurants to try "normal" food again. Honestly the main thing that I tasted in everything was salt, and it tasted disgusting to me. I feel restaurants should cut out how much salt they use (not completely though) and allow the customers to add salt if they want it. But I don't agree with the government "regulating" it.

Gran Turismo 5 Delayed

rocket97 Gran Turismo vs Forza (122 comments)

When I play games on consoles I tend to lean towards racing and sports games and Gran Turismo was always one of my favorites. Then when the X-Box came out I switched to that for the Project Gotham Racing and then Forza was released so I switched to that because it just seemed like a better all around game. Anyway, I have not had a chance to play Gran Turismo for the past few releases because no one I know owns a Play Station for me to try it. I was wondering if anyone can give me an insight as to how the latest releases of GT compare to the latest releases of Forza. Preferably non-bias responses (although I know around here that will be hard to find.)

Motorola to launch 2GHz Android phone in 2010

rocket97 rocket97 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

rocket97 (565016) writes "Yesterday, at the Executives Club of Chicago, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha reportedly decided to chat about the relatively near future of the mobile landscape as he sees it — which, in part, includes the ultimate demise of mobile computers in favor of highly-capable smartphones.

This being his vision, Jha discussed Motorola's plans for a smartphone with an astounding 2GHz processor — by the end of this year.

While Jha wasn't feeling frisky enough to divulge any further information, Conceivably Tech cites another anonymous MOTOEXEC who was a little more chatty, talking up a device intended to "incorporate everything that is technologically possible in a smartphone today.""
