So far there doesn't seem to be an easy way to turn this off on Android devices.
VideoA piece of keystroke-sniffing software called Carrier IQ has been embedded so deeply in millions of Nokia, Android, and RIM devices that it's tough to spot and nearly impossible to remove, as 25-...

Yeah, rooting sollutions are all I've seen so far as well. Apparently if you are an IOS user, there is a config menu option available, but for Android users, no such luck.

This is why we can't have nice things.
On the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth, Gallup polling shows only 39% of Americans saying they “believe in the theory of evolution,” while a quarter say they do not believe in the theory, ...

Yeah, it feels so much like it is core, I sometimes forget that it isn't. Since I'm using drush for local work, I should set up a local install profile so I only have to remember again once.

The time to show your disapproval is now. Let's stop SOPA and PIPA today.
Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.. Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Sena...

FYI
Baratunde Thurston originally shared:
 
So Atlanta, after over two years, I return tomorrow (Weds Oct 12) for a few hours. I plan to make the most of it. I'm in town to participate in this CNN Dialogues event about social media's impact.

http://www.pennhouseproductions.com/enews/cnndialogues2socmedi.html

If you have questions you want me or the group as a whole to suggest, comment on this post.

As, if not more importantly, I'm hosting a mini office hours at TAP after the event. Roughly 9-11pm. Cool cats I haven't seen in a while should be rolling through like +J. Smith, +Brandon Sheats and more. Bring your friends or entertaining enemies. Let's palaver!

TAP

An open letter (rant) to bloggers...

Dear Bloggers,

OK, I know that E-book you paid $90 bucks for told you that the single most important thing that you can do is to build your list. I am also well aware that the premium WordPress theme that you shelled out for comes with this nifty widget that lets you present your visitors with a pop-up to sign up for your mailing list. You're trying to build your audience, and maybe even make some extra money in the process. I get that.

Here's the thing though... You aren't giving me any time to assess your content before you present me with this pop up. You are making me click cancel just to get to that content, the very content that you should be using to make me WANT to sign up for your newsletter. The first impression that you make should be with the brilliant content that you wrote. If my first impression of you comes from a pushy pop up window with an ask, you're going to have to work that much harder for your brilliant content to overcome my annoyance. The first impression that you are giving me isn't brilliant content expert or entertaining storyteller, but rather pushy used car salesman. Don't do that.

Try to think of how you interact with people when you meet them in real life. Is the first thing that you say to them "hey buddy, buy my book", or do you properly introduce yourself to them and mention in passing during the natural course of conversation that you are an author. This should be the same sort of flow that your blog has. Don't shove a pop up in my face as soon as I load your page. At least give me some time to "meet" you first. Seriously, cut it out.

Thanks.
