Does anyone happen to know if franco.Kernel supports OTG Charging on the N7 (2013) ?

Just loaded the update.

Epic work Logitech, especially the part about the Harmony Ultimate pinging Nest to let it know not to go into auto-away mode. For those of us with one thermostat on a multistory house, that's perfect. Keeps your thermostat from going auto-away while you're being lazy and watching TV. :)

Although the video being a day behind the software release is a bit of a bummer to get the word out.

Nice picture viewer. Definitely worth a look if you've gotten irritated with Google's latest move to remove the image viewer and give us G+ photos.

Here's my tech rant for today ...

Okay Samsung, I just spent all morning updating the firmware on my AT&T Note 2 from 4.1.2 to 4.3. Apparently, you've decided that because I have a rooted device, I'm not eligible for an update, even though I'm running the stock firmware with the addition of root. No XposedFramework, no hacked hotspots, theme mods, etc. Just one extra binary so I can run a good backup tool. For that, you'll force it to fail. Whether this was AT&T's decision or yours, it's your device, your brand, you own it. So with that, here's my rant about what you're doing lately...

Remember when everyone said you were going to be the next Apple? I think you might have finally achieved that!

First off, there's the repetitive bullshit of the devices. The S4 was just a faster version of the S3, the S5 is just more of the same. A couple of add ons, a shape / size upgrade, some hardware, nothing revolutionary. The Note 1/2/3? Just more of the same. No innovation. And for God's sake, fix the damned camera. It's not about mega pixels. Put a decent lens on the phones and quit trying to sell me the Galaxy Camera.

Now let's talk about those Nazi software updates shall we? First off, you're slow. The new devices get the love and the older devices like my "ancient" Note 2 drag behind forever. And when I get it, what did I really get? A big fat TouchWiz upgrade with KNOX and lots of other stuff I didn't want. I have a categorized settings menu now, which BTW, was fine uncategorized. (AOSP had this figured out in ICS, just use what they give you) The toggles got skinned, but now instead of looking like something that was made for Android 4.3 and all of it's Project Butter goodness, it looks like TouchWiz did on the SGS2 under Gingerbread! REALLY? Guys, come on, TouchWiz is old and ugly. Do something real with it or get rid of it. Again, AOSP has wonderful toggles and such. (I know the S5 is supposed to have something new and exciting, but I really don't think I'll be buying another Samsung device)

Let's see what else, the stock firmware on this device has all kinds of protections to stop me from doing things like changing the boot animation. A feat which requires a rooted device and knowledge of the Android file system. So who is Samsung trying to stop? The 0.5% of users who know how to do that? What's the point of that? Fine, AOKP, CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, etc. They'll all make ROMs, they'll probably even have an option to switch the boot animation, since it's a rudimentary thing that makes people love their device even more, because it's custom, it's not like everyone else's device. Too bad their stuff will never run right because you'll never fully release what they need for drivers and such. It's all too easy to just let them suffer, try and rewrite drivers for hardware, or just have a half functioning ROM so you can keep people on stock.

Here's a tip Samsung... Quit wasting money trying so hard to stop people from messing with the devices. Those who know how will figure it out, and they're smarter than the development team you're using. They're also relentless and don't get paid by the hour, they won't sleep until your software is defeated and they get what they want. This has been proven over and over and I can't understand why you don't recognize that as an "industry leader".

And let's not forget that if you root your device, it breaks all of your Allcast and such. That's pretty epic guys. Breaking software because of the presence of root? Really? It's my device, let me unlock it. HTC even got over that after fighting this war in the early days. It's okay though, 3rd party app developers make better DLNA products and support open technology. ROM developers will keep fighting to make a better OS image, Google will keep building their devices that are open and usable, and groups like CyanogenMod will partner with hardware vendors to make a device that's high powered AND open.

In my opinion, Samsung is the new Apple. In EVERY way. Such a shame. I'm waiting for them to fork Android and start calling it something else.

I've been buying from Ray for several years now. Great people to work with. They've outfitted 3 of my cars with audio systems and I've always been pleased with their service. This is a family and operated owned business who takes pride in what they do and making sure people get what they want. For those who balk at the price, I don't know whom you're comparing to, but Ray and his son have always taken care of me. Yeah, sometimes I could get gear cheaper on eBay, but not with a warranty.. :)
