I wonder how they're able to "open/close" the shutter so fast
It isn't a single shutter.

I can vouch for Fantamorph. Haven't updated (or used) it in years but it was a solid, evolved app even back then.

Good luck finding that - and really, the screen on any phone is too small for that.

I've found this issue to be very dependent on the person doing the reading. I've read full ebooks off my Nokia S60's tiiiiny, crappy display. smiley And I see the difference between the older iPad and newer retina displays but once I start reading, I'm completely oblivious to it. Reading a book off a PC monitor, OTOH... why don't you just gouge my eyes out?

if it is found or sold and the finder/buyer calls us, we recommend they turn it in at a local Sprint store where the owner can re-claim it.

That's too bad for the buyer if he bought it without knowledge of it being stolen (say online). IIRC, from my days of studying elementary law, the buyer would retain the title if he didn't know the property was stolen. A little Googling tells me otherwise... US laws seem to lean in favor of the original owner, and when they don't, things get really complicated and both parties would have to put in a lot of time and effort ... I don't expect things to go that far for a cell phone. smiley Sorry about the slight OT.

(Oops... looks like I misread Edvard's quote embarassed ... still, it's interesting to know how things would play out if the phone was sold off. )

“You are all very familiar with how we have paid the bills so far. These new changes mark our next step towards finding that difficult balance between keeping our lights on and providing a positive user experience,” they explain.

The sponsored torrents will appear in a highly visible spot on top of the list of downloads and will be used to promote content from advertisers. They can’t be “turned off,” but users have the option to click away individual ads.


uTorrent Becomes Ad-Supported to Rake in Millions | TorrentFreak
https://torrentfreak.com/...-rake-in-millions-120810/

Quote
However, a person close to the company told TorrentFreak that even without the uTorrent ads the company is doing very well. Current annual revenue is estimated at somewhere between $15 and $20 million and the company is backed by millions in venture capital.

I expect the company will benefit financially from the move, even though their savvier users will boycott the later versions or switch clients.

I was looking for a way to upload an image here using iOS, there are some forum browsing apps but some (all?) of those require the forum admin to add custom support for the app before the forum can be accessed.

I found a more straightforward way to do this: Safari Upload Enabler (Jailbreak reqd.)
It's a plugin for Safari (won't work with 3rd party browsers) that lets you upload files from the device - it has a tab that lets you browse the file system and pick a file, another tab for images/video that displays your galleries in the usual thumbnail view, a third tab for Dropbox access and a bookmarks tab to store your favorite locations. It even lets you zip the file being uploaded with the tap of a button... I tried an image upload on DC and it worked as advertised. Pretty nifty interface and it gets rid of another iOS handicap.

Then again, I'm not a power-hungry sociopath :-)


Huh? What's wrong with you? Haven't you read the Forbes top people lists? Don't you want to be on it? They're the role models for the rest of us! We should all try to hurt and injure as many people as possible in the name of saving the children and curing cancer while we're stomping on our co-workers to get to the top! Remember, once you've crippled someone, they're not as easily able to compete against you! And if you can bamboozle people into thinking that your trampling on others is really good for the environment and will save baby seals, then all the better~! It's not just about who has the most toys when they die, it's about making sure that nobody else has any toys! tongue

Ok. Silly mode over. cheesy Errr... maybe. We'll see. Grin

Now, how would I rate things for myself... Let's see...

#1 Show me the money.
#2 Show me the money.
#3 Show me the money.
#4 Show me the money.
#5 Show me the money.

Grin

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaiSHcHM0PA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaiSHcHM0PA</a>

Well, at the risk of sounding shallow... tongue

But seriously -- If I'm going to work for someone else, then that's pretty much all that matters.

Advancement is an illusion for the most part.

Short working hours? Well, as long as I'm being well paid for the time I spend, then I'm fine with long hours. Long hours = more showing me the money. Grin

Danger of being fired/laid off? Well, this is a total illusion. Just ask people hit by "austerity". But while we're here, I'd like:

  • A pet unicorn with wings that poops ice cream, farts gold, and burps word balloons that tell the world how wonderful I am
  • 6,000 metric tonnes of rainbow in a can
  • A couple light sabers
  • And a Death Star just for good measure (in case I'm fired/laid off)

tongue

Hmmm... What next? Oh yeah. Job satisfaction. cheesy Nope. Not interested in the least in this. It's just a total lie for picky or unhappy people. I take pride in pretty much everything I do, I'm really in very little danger of this ever being an issue. Even when I'm just going damage control, I'm working to get things as good as possible. Things might not be perfect, but I can certainly be happy with taking something from 1 star to 3 stars. Even easy stuff is good. Heck, you can just feel good about yourself because something was very easy for you. cheesy <3

l just wana let u know I had a BLAST reading that! cheesy

Can't argue with the fact that some people would find it handy.

So MS rolled out yet another email service: outlook.com

Digital Inspiration has compiled a "reasons to love it" list.
http://www.labnol.org/int...t/gmail-vs-outlook/24531/

Some good features listed there, some not so much.

This bit (from the above mentioned article) got my attention...
Quote
Outlook makes it easy for you to recover your deleted messages even if you have permanently emptied your Trash bin. Open the “Deleted” folder in Outlook and click the link that says “recover deleted messages.”

- seems like a very good reason to not use the service for anything private if MS is going to hold onto my mail till it decides not to.

MS's reasoning:
Quote
With Microsoft Outlook, you can recover email that might have been accidently deleted from your inbox. This is also helpful if your account has been hacked, because hackers often delete all the messages in an account.


Hilarious! If a hacker gets into my account the last thing I want is for him to have the fxxxing ability to resurrect every last one of my deleted mails.  Grin

However...
Quote
This feature doesn’t work for child accounts. This way, parents can be confident that when they delete messages from their children’s accounts, they stay deleted.

I have no clue how to create a child account but apparently, that's the way to go.

By the way, Nosh made a good joke (above) but has deleted it for some reason. I had seen it before, but it was not in my database (it is now!).


I was a bit smashed. Wasn't sure if it had any universal appeal. Grin
Glad you liked it.

Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy, looking like he'd just been run over by a train.
His arm is in a sling, his nose is broken, his face is cut and bruised and he's walking with a limp
"What happened to you?" asks Sean, the bartender.
"Jamie O'Conner and me had a fight," says Paddy.
"That little shit, O'Conner," says Sean, "He couldn't do that to you, He must have had something in his hand."
"That he did," says Paddy, "a shovel is what he had, and a terrible lickin' he gave me with it."
"Well," says Sean, "you should have defended yourself, didn't you have something in your hand?"
That I did," said Paddy.
"Mrs. O'Conner's breast, and a thing of beauty it was, but useless in a fight."

Esprit d'escalier is a term I recall from Palahniuk's Guts [very NSFW, definitely not reading for the faint-hearted.]

I'll go through the rest of that list once I catch a few winks.

My highest culinary achievement (chicken farcha - a slightly localized version of fried chicken.)
I was left to fend for myself and got sick of ordering restaurant food... cooking is such a PITA, I'll just try KFC next time.
