Regarding malicious content on Facebook ...
Facebook may have been hacked, with a flood of graphic images intruding on people's news feeds.

That's the thing - it's not a single unit when you buy a phone that runs Android. There is an ideological difference. What you described is the Mac way - hardware and software as a single unit. The Android way is not that - freedom versus integrated support. As for whose fault this is, if you ask any of the Android developers they will tell you this is a feature, not a bug. :)

For all the Marathi users .. how many times you find yourself stuck on a certain phrase, just because you don't know or remember the exact word in Marathi that describes it succinctly? It happens to me all the time. Well, no more! Here's J.T. Molesworth's English-Marathi Dictionary (2nd Ed.), printed for government at the Bombay Education Society's press in 1857, brought to you by the South Asia Language and Area Center at University of Chicago, Columbia University, and the Triangle South Asia Consortium in North Carolina under the project named "Digital Dictionaries of South Asia project". This project is closely affiliated with the "Digital South Asia Library" - a project of the Center for Research Libraries and the University of Chicago. The content is released under a Creative Commons License. This dictionary is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education. The data for this dictionary was most recently updated in October 2003.
Note: The "Devanagari" phrases are not spelled all too accurate at times, but it serves the purpose. And to display these characters, you must have "Unicode" (UTF-8) installed on your system.

A friend asks me "..ok wats the deal with RAW format being better?" .. So, this is for all of you out there, who like my friend, still shoot in JPEG, even when your camera allows you to shoot in RAW ...

Again, spatial resolution/ size of sensor is has nothing to with bit-depth., which is essentially the upper limit of intensity resolution. Yes, I understand what bit-depth is. The point is that it has absolutely nothing to do with RAW versus JPEG. And by the way JPEG is not fundamentally an 8-bit format as is clearly mentioned in the JPEG specs.
