Game over Apple fans! Dual booting Android is here!
Today we are pleased to announce the end to the Apple vs. Android war. About a year ago, our Gadget Hacks team started working on a top-secret project to dual-boot both Android and iOS on the same phone—and we couldn't be more proud to announce that we've finally succeeded! Your phone can now run both iOS and Android—whenever you want. Right now. Note: For those of you with Android phones, we've also built a way to dual-boot iOS on an Android Pho...

Watched the Munk Debate on Internet Surveillance between Hayden and Greenwald (with their rather unfortunate sidekicks, Dershowitz and Ohanian).

Ohanian just embarrassed himself repeating the same line about weakening security over & over again without bothering to explain or reference evidence as to how or why. He seemed to come into the debate assuming everyone understood his stance as fact. He also seems to believe that telling people you're a nerd/technologist/entrepreneur would serve as proof that he is oh so clearly right. Cringworthy. In way over his head.

Dershowitz, the lawyer, rather predictably got distracted by unimportant semantics, which he argued vehemently.

Hayden over-downplayed his hand aver being called out for his initial strategy of hyperbolic scare-tactics. He trusts the protection policies in place, even though they don't technically govern or change the fact that everything's being sucked up.

Greenwald, the only one who came armed with at least a little fact-based information, very easily tore down Dershowitz's "trust our policy's" statement by pointing out Snowden's ability to steal all those documents without leaving a trace. For the most part his points were fine if not old news. Unfortunately he too slipped into hyperbole, slightly undermining his authority, though he was still easily effective at discrediting Hayden.

Nothing new to speak of. I left very disappointed.

Yikes, what happened to facebook? It's like all the web-safe fonts got drunk together for st patty's day and just puked all over the page.

The missmatch of font faces/sizes is just awful.

RIP Winamp. Long Live Spotiamp!
What is Spotiamp? Spotiamp is a Windows program that lets you login to your Spotify account and play your playlists. You can also search for tracks to play, and there's a radio feature. Spotiamp borrows the design of the UI from Winamp, an excellent MP3 player back in the days.

Now here's a disruptive startup (backed by Google Ventures). Commission free trading, with plans to offer API access. Compare that to E*TRADE's $9.99 per trade on their clunky old website.

https://www.robinhood.io/?ref=VTrSYW
Get $0 commission stock trades and stop paying $10 every time you buy or sell.

BFL Jally Mining away... At 0.008 BTC/day, I'm going to need to see some serious BTC:USD inflation for this to have been a good purchase. 6 months before shipping really ate up its practical value.

Same here.  After waiting 5+ months, I'm not sure $100 is worth it now.  I would love to take it apart and see if it's diff hardware though, or if anyone can do it with a firmware upgrade.  Off to check the forums, because I think some ppl from a yr ago just simply upgraded firmware.  Also, I don't see them being able to swap cores so easily given how incredibly slow they are.

For anyone needing a domain name with wildcard subdomains pointing at their local machine, I just registered localhos.tips to do just that. All A and MX records point to 127.0.0.1. Also, *.ip6.localhos.tips has all the AAAA records in case you need to test IPv6 stuff locally. Cheers.

When people first learn that their Android device is capable of dual-booting different operating systems, e.g. Linux, they almost universally respond with, "That's so cool." And for those of us ambitious enough to actually try one out, we are typically filled with glee as we see Ubuntu, or something similar, boot up for the first time on our tablet or phone. We play around, download some cool new apps, and brag to our iPhone-toting friends... but...

Getting a solid 8GHPS out of my new 7GHPS ButterflyLabs ASIC Miner which finally arrived today. If only they shipped all these "little" miners before they shipped the big ones, the difficulty wouldn't be so damn high.

BFL was my worst purchase ever, but at least I only bought 1 jally and not a super rig.  It's become too difficult to mine for any profit, but I managed to make a little due to the spike recently.  500 gh/s units took over which sent the ASICminers that used to be $250/piece back in July to $10/piece a few weeks ago (now they are $30+).  Was always a gamble though and I knew that going in.  Fun while it lasted.  :)  I will keep an eye on the alt-coins.

Broke my back while snowboarding and walked away from it.... And by "walked away from it", I mean "I was pulled down the mountain strapped to a plank of wood by 4 life-saving skiers on Monarch Mountain and tossed into an ambulance where I was rushed to the nearest hospital only to be forced to walk away (painfully... even while on morphine) by the DR because I didn't have my health insurance card with me. seriously."
