BTW: HOLY CRAP, my +NETGEAR WNDR4000 router power brick just gave me the big * poof * of death.
Heard a "sparkly" noise (by chance, the room was kind of silent at the time) ; started to smell like smoke and burned plastic; saw the router blinking frantically, so I pulled out the power cable; burned my fingertips in the process; and I could literally see a sparkle blinking at the tip! The damn thing actually melted an ethernet cable when I dropped it!
(That notch you can see on the white cable is actually a burn)

I can't believe it! 🤯
Would it have occurred during the night, or while I wasn't there, only god knows what could've happened! ⚡? 🔥?
(Yeah, it's filthy, this is under a desk)

Hi there;

Is there any way to import custom images into IPS?

To be fair, the only thing +Google Canada posted in the last 3 years is a bunch of Allo/Duo/Pixel ads, sooo...yeah. 🙄
Google France shuts down its Google+ page, asks users to follow it on Twitter and Facebook instead.

Attribute this quote - "hear come all the foreigners" -

Nope; Android Police, 2018.

Paid add-ons for premium apps : acceptable or not?

So there's this "App Cloner" app, of which I always mildly disapproved because it's mainly used by "cheaters" looking for an easy way to manage dozens of accounts in Free to Play games and whatnot.

Of course, there are other use cases for the kind of extensive modding that this app allows, (I originally came upon it because it can make sideloaded apps showing up on the OG Android TV launcher) but let's not kid ourselves; the main purpose will always be to do something you're not supposed to and break some TOS in one way or another. 

The dev, +AppListo is quite dedicated and friendly, mind you. He updates his app almost weekly, and provides constant support via his Google+ community. There's no denying that it's a good, well executed and maintained app.

But here's the kicker: today, he came up with new "purchasable add-ons". 

Super-premium options to add on top of the already premium price of the not-so-full-anymore version.. and I'm genuinely not sure what to make of it.

Granted, this is basically what the game industry has been doing for years now (paid DLC on top of AAA games), but still; let's just say I couldn't think of another Play Store app that's been doing something similar. (feel free to enlighten me on that point)

Granted again, developers are fully entitled to manage their apps as they see fit, and should be allowed to make a living out of their work.

Still. I am torn. (/heartbroken)

.. Would you believe that when I respectfully pointed that out to the dev on his announcement post, his reaction was to disable the comments? (sigh)

I trust that he will now respectfully ban me from his community and possibly block me forever, but heh. 

¯\(ツ)

So, what do you think, folks?

AppListo, feel free to hit me up as well; and would you choose to do so in private, I promise it would stay private, but I still want other people's opinion.

A great choice if you hate yourself or just don't like nice things..

This thing is so bad I had to double check the original date of publication; I honestly thought it was a years old repost.
Wait while more posts are being loaded
