Heh.. just got blocked from commenting on a post for the very first time.

Was it something political? Religious?

Nope, it was by +Chris Sewell because he doesn't like anyone pointing out how absurd his stance is on having no SD slots in an Android phone is. What is even more amusing, is it was a thread exactly about SD cards in android phones. Go figure...

I tried a last reply, but oh well.. will post it here...
 
+Chris Sewell said: iCloud backups mean I don't lose any of that

That depends on two major assumptions:

1) you trust the internet with your data,  which IMO, is increasingly foolish in today's world, don't just think NSA, think Dot Com and seizure of entire data storage companies. Letting someone else maintain your irreplaceable files is a major gamble.

2) you are rich enough to upload your data over your carrier and not blow through your data caps. WiFi is NOT an alternative, as it runs into the same problem as waiting until you get home, loss of data between capture and chance to backup.

...and finally, just because your have an SD card to store data, doesn't mean you cant use all the other options as well, you just have the additional security of a backup you can access if your phone dies on you.

Heck, and I haven't even brought up the countless other extra options you get with a SD slot, that you cant do w/o one. Easy example, is taking the SD card out of my Nikon, and dropping it into my phone for instant uploads.

Besides, isn't Android supposed to be about options, not lack of them. Oh well, some people just can't leave the Apple mindset behind, even on Android devices.

These cops deserved to be charged with murder. This is BEYOND unacceptable, and should NOT be just brushed off as a "mistake".

the scenario is similar to what I used to teach at the police academy, where a uniformed cop chasing a man tells the rookie to "shoot him!" The y're NOT supposed to unless someone's life or theirs is in imminent danger. They fucked up in a big way, it'll cost the city some big bucks.

It is just a shame this child's father did eat of the rice as well.

interesting article...
 
Processing new information during sleep compromises memory

New research highlights the important role sleep plays in strengthening and maintaining the accuracy of a memory and hints at why the brain shuts out sensory information during periods of deep sleep. The study found that introducing new odor information to an animal while it sleeps compromises its ability to remember the difference between new and previously encountered smells while awake.

Guilty, until proven innocent...and no problem with self-incrimination. Interesting indeed.
