The theme for Ludum Dare 30 is: Connected Worlds

Don't expect to hear much of anything from me for the next few days. I'll be too busy Daring to Ludum. Or something.

When her co-workers retrieved their phones to try to call her, they found that she had been frantically trying to call and text people to come help her.

Um... Why not call someone outside of the school to come help? undecided

Nothing! That's why we (usually) separate them shortly after birth! tongue

The real solution would be to allow users to deny permissions on a permission-by-permission basis (per app), so that if I didn't want Facebook to have access to my GPS, I could simply deny the location permission and anytime it tried to access the GPS, it would simply get an OS-level error/denial and be unable to get info from the GPS.

Then they (Facebook) could request all the permissions they wanted, and all I'd grant them is the ability to talk to the internets to deliver me my LOLcats and family photos.  Thmbsup

I believe that Cyanogenmod has or is working on implementing this feature.

You give your built in SMS app permission to use services that cost you money...and compose/send SMS...

Your dialing app has permissions to use your microphone and such...

Your camera app has permissions to...hmmmmm...take photos...

All of which are basic and standard...yet people ain't having a retarded fit about all these...WHY do people have to be so idiotic?  Seriously..May actually sign up to these guys...

http://www.mars-one.com/

Yes. Exactly. It's idiotic for someone to buy a camera and be upset that it might take pictures. Or to buy a phone and be upset that it can hear your voice with a microphone. But it's not idiotic for someone to be upset that an app you would use to look at pictures of cats and family also wants your entire address book, image gallery, GPS location, microphone access, credit card numbers, PIN(s), and DNA sequence.

My SMS app doesn't have ulterior motives.

My dialer doesn't have ulterior movites.

My camera doesn't have ulterior motives.

Facebook does.

Quote from: Youtube Video
In the city of Phetchaburi in Thailand, a dog discovered the fish out of the water and unconscious on the pavement. It will try not to let them die by spraying water with its snout. Besides the fish are few puddles. The dog will then sprinkle the fish, as if he wished they would not die. Touching!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HFodb9Ezyw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HFodb9Ezyw</a>
Holy cow that dog+fish video blew my mind.  Amazing.  That has to be one of the most remarkable videos in this long thread.
What an incredible dog.

And I can't help but notice the humans are laughing in the background while the dog seems genuinely concerned and troubled.

Occam's Razor:

The dog sniffed the dead fish (touching his nose to the fish) which was so putrescently odiferous that he was trying to scrub his nose clean on the wet pavement.

The problem is that if I'm going to use the Facebook messaging system, the only thing I want to use it for is essentially as an IM client. I don't want it accessing my contacts or my camera or my microphone or my location or anything else.

The very act of granting it permission to do those things means that it can at any time access those functionalities of your device. And if you trust the app to only do it when you explicitly give it permission to (e.g., only access the camera/gallery when you're taking/attaching a photo to your IM) then great! Use it. But IMO, Facebook has already demonstrated time and again that they cannot be trusted. They will abuse these permissions, they will take every advantage they can to collect as much information about you as possible.

If you pursue it, please keep us in the loop. I'd sure like to know what kind of company Monoprice really is...... Angry

I won't be pursuing it. Thinking on it, I actually ordered the cables about a year ago but didn't open them right away. When I finally did open them and start using the long thing ones, it only took maybe 4-6 weeks for the wires to get exposed. But as I said, the cables still work perfectly.

I think if I order more and experience the same issue, then I might pursue it with those ones.

But anyway, I didn't mean to derail the topic. I still turn primarily to Monoprice when it comes to buying cables. Especially things like HDMI cables. (c:

I recently-ish bought some of the USB -> USB Micro cables from MonoPrice.  I wanted nice, long 6' cables so it could reach from the outlets, and it turns out that my tablet's case is too snug around the USB connector for the "fat" ones to plug in while the case is on. So I had to get the more expensive, thin ones.

After a few weeks of using it to charge my phone and/or tablet the internal wires are poking out near the connection. )c:

The cable still works fine, but I have to say I was disappointed at paying extra and having it falling apart so quickly. This is really my only complaint I have about MonoPrice.

As someone who is turned off by LoL because of all the ways they can get money from you, I'm surprised people are complaining that they don't do it enough.

I'd really rather just buy a game once, and get all of it forever. I don't want to be nickeled and dimed. I don't want to subscribe for the privilege to play. I just want to "own" the game I buy, so I can play it any time, anywhere, anyhow.
