last link of the night, where this is (hopefully) headed now: www.motherjones.com/media/2013/09/michael-eisen-plos-open-access-aaron-swartz?page=2

I know I've been harping on this the last two days, but this development today is hugely important. A good sum up of the issue in this article from BGR, but people need to be raising the roof over this and make sure that Obama gets his way.

Lou Dobbs is such a tool.

8117. judithathome - 11/11/2014 8:20:30 PM

Of course he is...he has "FOX" after his name. You can't work for them without a "tool box".

It was on at the truck stop, so I was a captive audience, because I was there eating breakfast, listening to him lie and fearmonger about net neutrality. Otherwise I would pursue me my purposeful delusion that lou dobbs somewhere along the line dropped off the planet.

Just trying to see if I can make a hyperlink on my phone, but man that took a lot of typing. Voice to text is so much easier, and long press select copy select paste is pretty easy too.

well crap.

That's totally, fucking awesome!

8121. arkymalarky - 11/12/2014 8:12:43 PM

Ha! thought you'd like it!

This is absolutely fascinating to me: Gizmo Makes Water Out Of Hot Air...No Word On When It Will Be Installed In Congress

Well, it's been 5 years. I bought a new phone. Things certainly have changed.

8124. arkymalarky - 11/27/2014 7:56:36 PM

What you get what you get what you get

8125. iiibbb - 11/28/2014 9:16:21 PM

Motorola Turbo because of the battery. It is pretty keen. With the Tasker app I can get 1 1/2 days of heavy use out of it. Everything except the navigation app is better than before. .

8126. arkymalarky - 11/28/2014 11:44:18 PM

oohh yeah. that's a nice one. are you using google navigation? I like it. I did apple nav and it was awful. one reason I just didn't bond with the iPhone.

8127. iiibbb - 11/29/2014 12:25:23 AM

The older nav had a feature that I miss. When you were on a route and you put it in traffic view it would zoom out and show the next 100 miles or so. On long trips I could see upcoming traffic jams and sometime plan alternate routes or stop and eat rather than suffer. The new one doesn't automatically zoom and it puts a blue route line over the traffic info so you can't see what's going to affect you.

Tasker does more, and power toggles is better than what I was using before. Another app worth getting is easytether

8128. arkymalarky - 11/29/2014 12:35:27 AM

I'm embarrassed to say how many apps I have on my phone. I'm kind of an app enthusiast. I'll say something to stan about easytether. That's something he'll use and he's a lot more careful about how many apps he puts on his phone.

8129. iiibbb - 11/29/2014 1:02:42 AM

Easy tether is better than logging into a public network. Or where there is no network at all. Better than 20/mo for hotspotting too

8130. iiibbb - 11/29/2014 1:03:29 AM

Do you have shush!

8131. arkymalarky - 11/29/2014 1:11:34 AM

haha! no, but I figure I'm about to....

8132. arkymalarky - 11/29/2014 1:15:40 AM

There are two, and both sound neat, but the first is already done by moto assist. If you put it in meeting mode or set timers for yourself it will silence your phone when it doesn't need to ring.

Widgets > iphone. The only iPhone envy I have is bettery life
