I can't stand the fact that misinformation is so blatantly being pushed about vaping*. Especially, liking vaping with smoking, which is a complete farce. What's worse, is that legislation is being passed, right now, that reinforces the lie that vaping products are "the same" as smoking. This is based on the misconception that nicotine is what makes smoking bad. That isn't completely true! Nicotine does play a role, but it's the other poisons and toxins in cigarettes (especially the tar) that makes smoking especially dangerous. With proper vaping materials, there is no danger of that. There is no combustion, no smoke, and no toxins to poison bystanders. Besides, the psychological addiction and triggers of cigarettes is what make it so hard to quit.

Don't get me wrong, I have no problem not vaping in a restaurant, grocery store, bank, hospital, etc. but that's due to consideration and NOT BECAUSE I WILL POISON PEOPLE AROUND ME. Legislatures and policymakers, listen up: I also do NOT want to be confined to having to vape around people that DO smoke. I've quit my smoking habit and DON'T WANT TO BE POISONED ANY MORE THAN YOU DO! You have no right to jeopardize my health by MAKING me vape standing next to a smoker.

There have been independent studies that prove there is very little of any kind of harmful elements in the vapor expelled from a vaping device*. In fact, those levels are little more than what you would breath in air anyway! What's more, generally people end up using LITTLE TO NO nicotine whatsoever in their juices. It allows people to get away from the thousands of harmful toxins and poisons present in tobacco smoke, and actually CONTROL their level of nicotine, and break the psychological triggers that are incurred from the smoking habit. The sensation of vaping is only remotely similar to smoking, but it's close enough that it can replace the sensation (somewhat) of smoking thereby allowing a smoker to satisfy that craving.

If you or anyone you know or love have had issues with smoking, then you know the ramifications that can come from smoking. SMOKING IS DEADLY! Don't let this happen to others; allow them to break this habit! Please, SUPPORT VAPING even if you don't smoke or vape already. This has helped thousands of people worldwide, and can help many more. Don't let big business lobbying and misinformed legislation kill another person! Attend council meetings and speak out, write letters, send faxes. Make your voice known.

* This assumes that professional juice and equipment is being used in your vaping experience, and excludes some e-cigarettes especially those whose liguid is created from tobacco itself. Vaping is a cessation ideaology; ecigarettes are a replacement ideaology. Two separate things, and should not be considered the same even though they are not mutually exclusive. Using vaping equipment imporperly and in a way not recommended by the manufacturer is how people get these devices blown up in their face, btw. But then, you don't take cars off the road if someone doesn't drive theirs properly..

The low risks of e-cigarettes is supported by research done by Dr. Siegel of Boston University, Dr. Eissenberg of Virginia Commonwealth, Dr Maciej L Goniewicz of the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Dr. Laugesen of Health New Zealand, Dr. Igor Burstyn of Drexel University, and by the fact that the FDA testing, in spite of its press statement, failed to find harmful levels of carcinogens or toxic levels of any chemical in the vapor.

Just sayin'...

Chilling out, checking out the new Android 4.4 KitKat. Flashed from DHacker's 4.4 KitKat port and GAPPS... I like the changes so far, and it does feel a bit zippier though that can be subjective. No issues with my apps, though I had an odd thing with the Android Keyboard (I simply switched to the AOSP keyboard), but other than that everything is smooth so far =)

Had an enjoyable run with 4.4, some issues though not TOO bad. Auto-rotate doesn't work properly, and some have reported issues with Google Now, and the calendar/email apps. Then again, about the only thing available at the moment should be classified 'alpha' ports (for the Nexus 7, which is what I am testing this on), and I am positive that once the official OTA hits, all will be well. 

I do believe Android 4.4 will be well worth it.

I've seen a lot of people asking if you can force update the Nexus7 4.3 update. Short answer is no, but you can manually update it. Thing is, you may run in to a bug where you can no longer download from the Play store, or get updates. You can, however, get around this issue by going to accounts in settings, and remove your Google account, then add it right back.

I don't know if the OTA is availble for anything but the N7-WiFi, but If you want to do it anyway, all you have to do is perform an adb sideload of the OTA. It doesn't erase anything or reset your tablet, it's just manually performing what the OTA does. Instructions to do this are readily available, just Google it.

In the event anyone is having issues installing Skype on OpenSuSE 12.3RC1, this may help.

Load the dependancies (you can use the graphical tool as well, if you choose):
zypper libpulse0-32bit alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit libXv1-32bit libXss1-32bit libqt4-32bit libQtWebKit4-32bit

Then install the dynamic version of Skype, or the SuSE 12.1 RPM. Either one will work.
 Cheers!

The use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) continues to increase worldwide in parallel with accumulating information on their potential toxicity and safety. In this study, an in vitro battery of established assays was used to examine the cytotoxicity, mutagenicity, genotoxicity and inflammatory responses of certain commercial e-cigs and compared to tobacco burning cigarettes, smokeless tobacco (SLT) products and a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT...
