to the trackers/other clients; I'm not sure about the details, but if all you use is public stuff its pretty great
I've been using Tixati but supposedly its been banned from several private trackers because of how it displays its client info
Calm before the storm; bump for the kast! Come join us on the IRC channel and await impending awesome
Everyone can join a bunch of Tested forum regulars on irc://irc.freenode.net/tested (#tested on Freenode), the semi-(un)official IRC channel of Tested. It'll probably be less chaotic than whatever actual-official chat is thrown up (read: youtube).
This is pretty relevant; I got this when I got banned for making a link-filled list for the Summer Reading 2012 Still Untitled. Drawn by (one of) our favorite mod Rallier
Here is what I would put together for under 2k
Currently have a terrible 500GB HDD and integrated 3200 AMD graphics
I'm always a fan of the Loyd build videos. Cant wait for the next one
Terrible 500GB HDD and integrated 3200 AMD graphics
I think TWiCH talked about Shingled hard drives a little while ago, and it seemed interesting. Its not going to replace the average users standard data drive, but it makes a really great case for archival stuff; backups, dumping family photos, movies, etc you plan on keeping. We've been steadily moving to a point where this is easier to do anyway. SSDs are taking the place of the "day-to-day" drive, holding the operating system, programs, and (depending on the person) games.
Despite the fact that it's nestle, I like the KitKat name more than KLP. For the few people outraged, Its just a code name, we probably wont see too much of it inside the actual OS save the version number easter egg, and the brand/marketing wont be any worse than usual. Google is even starting to crack down on ads inside android, by banning notification ads, and in-app pop-ups
MMoJ is really fun; even skeptics of the F2P models should check it out
Rest in Peace Ryan, the world is a shittier place without you
Will had said something about being alone this last week in the No Jars, probably why there's no podcast and a No Jars instead.
Authorities say the incident began when officers saw two vehicles full of people involved in some type of criminal activity in the 1000 block of Rosewood Court Thursday. When officers went to investigate, there was a physical altercation between police and 26-year-old Gerardo Diego Ayala that ended with a fatal officer-involved shooting. Police say a gun was located at the scene.
Investigators allege 21-year-old Victor Sanchez and two other suspects then took off in a Dodge Charger. With Sanchez at the wheel, the Charger slammed into two vehicles during the pursuit before hitting Reisse, police said.
The iOS getting Google Apps that are better is more of an issue of how Google is structured than proper app development (though there is some crossover).
There are separate teams for iOS and Android development. This leads to some general annoyances, such as Maps. Since Google has a design language that spans across most/all of its platforms, The apps will probably look the same, however, iOS Maps was built from the ground up on the new design, while Android's maps, which hasn't been (fully) given the new Holo look (Navigation ugh), will finally get its much needed coat of paint in June iirc.
I can't really comment on 4.0 and the Google Now, I do wonder if it has something to do with the updated TTS bits. (There are new calls in the TTS code that point to Googles servers. This is why Android has "two" TTS' voices, the standard one (that's replaceable) you hear for things like proper turn-by-turn in Navigation (ie street names) and the Google Now one)
Some Holo does trickle down to 2.x, but I imagine the entire UI would be a bit more of a challenge. I had a HTC G2, an officially Froyo/GB only phone, and I remember for ICS the community devs having to get new display, camera, etc drivers; perhaps the stock launcher/settings were coded for the new graphics stuff only
+1 for AntennaPod; but does it work on GB?
Charles Stross' Rule 34 has a viewpoint on what could happen with 3D printing, and this draws us closer to that possibility
You'll probably be happy still; despite Haswell being a nice bump in performance, Ivy Bridge has more than enough power to do anything you need it to. Supposedly Haswell also got a huge jump in graphics performance, but your discrete (The Nvidia GPU) will still be better.
The best you could expect from consoles is "4k" menus and Games running at a lower resolution, ala the current gen and 1080p. PCs on the other hand...
Much like the 4.2 update, AP has spotted IPs that point to Google employees with a User Agent that has another rev of JB on it, coming from both a Nexus 4 and Nexus 7
I imagine they are making 5.0 a huge leap, and so this will be an "incremental" update. This doesnt necessarily mean anything to the average person, as these .X releases have brought us big things, like Google Now, and design changes, such as how the Notification blind was refreshed.
The scattered parts are available with a site-side search, with the newer Audio player/download buttons alongside
