One reason why I have always preferred Nexus/GPE/AOSP Android devices/ROMs.

I thought my 360 had too many restrictions.
 
All the things wrong with the Xbox One by using the Microsoft Xbox website as the source for information. #XboxDifference #NoDRM #XboxOne

I love how the very first thing on the list has to do with not being able to play games on it. The very thing that 90% of people will buy it for. I envision walking down the street with new Xboxs laying around because people got frustrated trying to figure out why they couldn't play their new game and chucked them out the window.

I have used it a little at work. It seemed pretty good. Lots of options. Biggest thing would be to secure it with https, setup ddns, and then secure your home network. I am looking to eventually run it on my freenas box hopefully

Why fingerprints shouldn't be used for security. http://goo.gl/TWJjKT

The problem with fingerprint scanners is that they once your biometric information has been compromised you can't change it, ever.

Easy privacy, coming soon.

I'm working on a new feature that will hopefully make it's way into CM. It's called "Run in Incognito Mode". It's a simple privacy feature designed to help you keep your personal data under control.

I've added a per-application flag which is exposed via a simple API. This flag can be used by content providers to decide if they should return a full or limited dataset. In the implementation I'm working on, I am using the flag to provide these privacy features in the base system:

 * Return empty lists for contacts, calendar, browser history,and messages.
 * GPS will appear to always be disabled to the running application.
 * When an app is running incognito, a quick panel item is displayed in order to turn it off easily.
 * No fine-grained permissions controls as you saw in CM7. It's a single option available under application details.

The API provides a simple isIncognito() call which will tell you if incognito is enabled for the process (or the calling process). Third party applications can honor the feature using this API, or they can choose to display pictures of cats instead of running normally.

We aren't providing ad-blocking or device info (IMEI) spoofing. This feature is designed explictly to help protect your personal data, and it will remain as such.

If this doesn't have a locked bootloader, and if the community manages to dual-boot this with Linux natively (not a chroot Linux install), this could potentially replace both my laptop and TF101.
