For those who say that this feature has been available for years on PC, come on, the PS3 only has 256mb ram. Its hard to free up enough ram to install and play at the same time
Come on, Nokia can provide free music to its users, why can’t google bundle free music subscription with every nexus?
Also, I believe that they can make a comeback.
Remember back when Nokia was king? Their best selling smartphone back than was the 5230, a POS 99$ off contract S60V5 phone. Those phones were Nokia’s bread and butter. With the Lumia 520, they can make a comeback. The reason why Nokia “gave up” on Symbian back when it was selling loads was because even back in 2010, the majority of their Symbian sales were s60v5 cheapos at firesale prices (the 5230 was like 40$), S^3 was not making progress.
The 920 isn’t doing too well, but than, historically, Nokia’s flagships just didn’t do that well. Once they bring on the 520, I fell that Nokia can strike back
To be honest, when it comes to internals, Nokia themselves already do a very good job with holding themselves back.
Remember the S^3 generation? Nokia started off by launching the first gen s^3 phones with the Broadcom 680mhz SOC, than months later, they launched more phones with the same chipset, and that was even after a major software update! The first batch of (N8, C6, C7) S^3 phones launched with the same chipset as the second batch (E7), and even the Symbian Anna phones (E6, X7)!
I understand the whole 6 month refresh concept, like the one x and one x +
but as a 920 owner, damn you Nokia! Xenon would be sooooo nice!
The Victoria and Albert museum in London ignited my dreams of conquest, my dream is to become a great mercenary, conquering nations, crushing my enemies, seeing them driven before me, and hearing the lamentations of their women! I want to follow the footsteps of John Hawkwood and Hernan Cortez just so I can obtain a collection like that.
But than, my beer gut, poor marksmanship and wimpy arms put me back into reality. But alas, a man can dream can’t he?
In my opinion, individuals demanding their stuff back is completely legitimate. My house got broken into, I have the rights to get my stuff back. Governments also have the right to get their government property back. However, governments should not have a right to “represent” individuals to get their stuff back, not can a current government get the previous government’s stuff back. And if it was signed away in a treaty, well, conquer it back, or your not getting it.
By allowing nation states to demand artifacts just makes it extremely messy. Things like Yugoslavia splitting up just messes it all up, and so does regime changes, and territorial changes. If the rightful owner (or lawful heir) doesn’t demand it back, than nobody has the rights to it. the government cannot “represent” some long dead guy to get it back, or if they do, it goes to the rightful heirs.
PS: Victoria and Albert is the best museum in London, much better than the national gallery or British museum.

Jack is back! And now, he can actually eat and shit!
The n82 actually shits on the HTC One when in many situations.
I mean, the HTC One’s pixels are only as big as the n82. Sure, there are software improvements with the HTC one, but in my opinion, I prefer the “raw” images of the n82.

Texting isn’t expensive, not at all. Robbers(rogers) charges 5$ for 500 texts, that is plenty, unless you text “um” and your “ahs”.
My friends who BBM often simply use it to say practically nothing, a lot of OMGs and Ums, and thus, I still prefer texting.
Not gonna lie, I’m not an ideological person. My biggest positive personality trait is honesty.
I lived in china for a few years, had a nosy political science teacher, and was a card carrying young pioneer. I lived in places where I got rights, and places where I didn’t
My life’s dream was always to be a mercenary (completely unrealistic, I know). Since after all, if you can’t beat them, join em.
Well Motorola has a strong brand, good talent, and supply chain connections. Sure, google isn’t drowning in money, but they have quite a bit of it, and Motorola was once the strongest android OEM.
Very cynical view, but liberty is not something that people should learn to expect.
Remember, liberty as a “right” is something that has only existed for a last few hundred years, and it is a value that is only valued in some segments of western society. Humans have existed for tens of thousands of years, and for the most part of human society, “liberty” was not a cherished value. When you look at some traits like “honor” (a value that almost every around the world in any period in history values strongly), “liberty” is just a blip on the radar.
a complete disregard of human rights is the norm with civilization. the fact that you have “rights” just by existing is an anomaly. I hate to say it, but from a purely rational perspective, you should enjoy your human rights when you can, and don’t be surprised when it disappears.

The truth about security cameras is that most of them aren’t monitored.
Most security camera DVRs (commercial grade, not the CIA stuff) have hard drives of 500 gb. 500 gb is pretty small, you either get shitty quality (unfortunately people think the cops have csi level skills of infinite zoom), or you can only store a tiny little bit of video, after a day or so, a common 8 camera system recording at 720p will fill up the 500gb and start to wipe the old files.
Thus, really, security cameras are mostly for deterrence, the actual effectiveness is much lower than people think
