Surgery done. I'm now missing a gallbladder. Got to the hospital over a week ago in immense pain and haven't had food since. Just ice chips all day every day. Glad this is over.

I passed gallstones, it was the most pain I've ever had. Basically equivalent to being kicked in the nuts really hard. My wife had a ruptured gallbladder. Praying for a quick recovery.

The comments on this are pretty spot on re: why military has militarized weapons and police should definitely not. It's all about training and accountability. Key one imo being accountability. When you can hide behind a union and blind public support in a lot of transgressions, people tend to be a little loose with the use of force.

Like that first comment states, _There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people._

Hmmmm..... Aren't most the people in this latest rash of police shootings (last couple of years) being fatally shot by the officers service weapon? .... Which is 99% of the time a pistol?

I mean that doesn't address whether or not the police should have "assault rifles".

But would the police not having military style weapons have changed anything in the recent cases that we've seen? I'd hardly call a Glock or Beretta a military style weapon and Smith and Wesson is equally capable of causing a fatality.

Never OnePlus.
 
Ridiculous. Just ridiculous. After a full year of selling a non-compliant Type-C phone, +OnePlus follows up with their OnePlus3 that ALSO doesn't support USB host in the correct way according to the Type-C spec. The OnePlus 2 shipped with a noncompliant cable, and their "otg" mode was noncompliant such that official C device adapters would not work, and so is the OnePlus 3, apparently.

They simply haven't learned how to build a phone properly.

Thanks +GTrusted for the scoop.

Folks, avoid OnePlus's phones if you want a phone that actually works with peripherals in the growing USB Type-C ecosystem like thumbdrives, for goodness sake.

I understand that, but they dropped the ball there. The first dozen reviews of the app are about how people can't use it because the servers got overloaded. There should at least be an option to render locally, or on your home PC. An app that's unusable 15-20 percent of the time isn't worth getting.

^^ That isn't that far fetched. It only hinges on our integrity and willingness to say of that would-be dictator, "No. This is wrong."

Fun theory about Cyanogen not doing OSs anymore: this was due to behind the scenes changes by Google where Android was treated more like Android Wear, Android TV, etc where OEMs can only customize the OS by adding their own apps.

It's fun to think about, and where I've been wanting to see Android pivot anyways. I can dream.

Shitty 🙁 That said, their CEO was making it really hard to like them as a company for a long time, but it still sucks. On the bright side here's an open offer to any devs, QA, UX, etc that may want to move to the East Coast to give WillowTree a shot. 🙁
