+Brett Legree nice to hear that Facebook's app has not improved much since 2010 or 2011 then. That was about when I had switched from app to web because of the suck differential.

Interesting. Outside of Star Wars/Indy it's rare for Williams to score a sequel; only other he did it for is The Lost World. 

I'll give it a listen, and report back. :P

It was good. The same can't really be said for the movie, though.

My fav part is at the end it's quite an euphemism to say "excellent" even to quantify it's demises.

Damn from what I can remember Flash has had vulnerabilities on all platforms since day one, from Macromedia to Adobe to the G they never kept up quite efficiently lmao!

...Flash has not had an excellent safety record in general, but major security vulnerabilities in the software...

It does remind me of my Turbo, a little. Sim slot is on the side for me, though, and the headset jack is different.
Yesterday, we looked at some leaked photos of the Moto X 2015, which is set to be announced at next week's Motorola event. Today, we're taking another look at the very same handset, but in gold and white. While the shots of this unique phone do not reveal any new details of the hardware, it's good to see such a luxurious looking option could be made available. We'll eagerly await...

Especially with the  navigation controls all being on the bottom. Like the phone is floating in front of us or something. :p

Interesting. Although coming out with a suite more useful than Motorola's is impossible to be honest :p
For just 500 Xperia Z3 owners in Sweden, Sony is introducing its Concept for Android project, a concept OS that brings a stripped down version of Android 5.1 to users, with popular Sony features built directly into the OS. To put it simply, it's vanilla Android, with a few extra tricks.

I've had this app called Beamer for quite a few years now (mainly cause it makes Airplay video streaming to an aTV a fuck of a lot easier than with iTunes) and now it supports my Chromecast, too. \m/

Looks like we're going to have to add a "vehicles" section pretty soon.

I ordinarily would not share technology news from a normal newspaper like the Monitor, but they're one of the most professional papers I've ever read, so here you go.

"Technology" companies (aren't they all that, though?) are going to need to become conglomerates to avoid irrelevancy; Google and Apple clearly understand that.

Hysterics aside, sites will probably just find technical means around AdBlocker.

That being said: I've questioned that ads do anything at all, particularly in terms of Millenials. I can count the number of times I've bought anything due to seeing it advertised on one hand; I'm far more likely to hear/read about something I find purchase-worthy on a blog or in a youtube video, or going to an electronics store and seeing if it actively gets my interest; and then spend quite awhile mulling its purchase before actively committing. Online ads are instant gratification both for those of us with poor impulse control and the companies sponsoring them, and more and more people are being fiscally conservative these days. That they're frequently very obnoxious (remember that rollover ad The Verge had for Internet Explorer a few years ago that took over the whole damn page? Yeah) doesn't help matters, either. 
We could be one minute away from deletion of the dominant monetization currency of the web: advertising. If this happens…

+Brett Legree Yep, anything static and reasonable is OK, but if the ads start moving and/or making sounds, I'll leave the site or nuke the ad depending on the case.

A lot of the interest around this phone seems to be about the hardware + price, so, yeah, ROM it up :p

Microsoft have their heads up their asses with the new default windows one. It's a windows logo they shined light on with smoke around. Granted it's more complicated than that and it's kind of cool, but it shouldn't have been the default. I'm actually using this one right now XD

Hoo boy.
The so-called sharing economy is fast emerging as a 2016 presidential battleground, exposing fundamentally different approaches over how to embrace new technologies without hurting American workers.

Interesting. Toughbooks started showing up on my third deployment, and I've seen trade promotionals for "tough tablets" (or whatever this sort of thing winds up being called) like this.

Trouble's the screen. The inside of a rucksack generally has all kinds of pokey shit in it.
