  • Suddenly, Google Looks Shaky [Reports Lower than Expected Revenue Growth]

    Adblock Edge, if you want to be a real stickler. It’s the same as Adblock Plus except it doesn’t include a whitelist for Google’s ads. Or you could just untick the “allow non-intrusive ads” checkbox in Adblock Plus. Whatever.

    Google probably banned ad blockers from the Play Store as a way to combat the trend toward mobile devices that this article mentions. Part of me wonders how long it will be before they vanish from the Chrome Web Store as well.

  • Apple pulls iOS update after widespread reports of disabled phones

    If you’re worried about coverage, look at a T-Mobile reseller instead of a T-Mobile MVNO: with a reseller, you get exactly the same coverage as you would from T-Mobile postpaid but at less of a cost.

    That’s what I have. I signed up with 35orLess, a T-Mobile reseller, and was grandfathered in when they limited their client base to businesses only.

    Over on Howardforums, there’s a lot of talk about Harbor Mobile, a new T-Mobile Reseller:

    According to that thread, Harbor Mobile is supposed to be for businesses only, but they’ll accept just about anyone if you claim to have a sole proprietorship or something.

    Not exactly the most straightforward alternative, but I’d look into it if I wasn’t already on 35orLess.

    $140 per month? Absolutely ridiculous. I pay $58 per month for unlimited everything plus all the frills on T-Mobile. If they have good coverage in your area, I advise you to look at them or one of their MVNOs first.

    Sprint has some plans as well if you live in an area where their network isn’t congested. I was on Virgin Mobile when I first switched over to a smartphone.

    Verizon and AT&T are two sides of the same coin: like Republican and Democrat.

    It’s nothing new. Leftists have been saying for decades that the German National Socialist Party - or Nazis for short - were far-right even though ‘socialist’ is part of their name.

  • Top Linux Myths Dispelled

    Cato in PA to GeronL

    “Really? Seriously? There is absolutely no doubt that software makers, especially game makers ignore the Linux market.”

    I guess it depends on which software makers you’re talking about.

    One of the reasons I switched to Linux was because I was tired of proprietary software companies dictating what I could and could not do. I certainly don’t miss that. Open source equivalents do sometimes lack certain features of their proprietary counterparts, but they often include additional features of their own to make up for that.

    For instance, while Linux may not have the variety of proprietary software that Windows does, every respectable distribution comes with comprehensive, easily extensible software repositories that don’t require you to sign up for a user account. You also get a package management system.

    Lack of proprietary software isn’t holding Linux back. In fact, there’s nothing to hold back: it has already won. Linux powers Android, the world’s most popular smartphone OS. It runs on most of the world’s top supercomputers and many servers. It’s used in embedded devices ranging from Wi-Fi routers to automated vacuums like the Neato XV-25.

    A better question might be what is holding Windows and OS X back from achieving such comprehensive market dominance. Aside from the desktop market, Linux has won.

    Cato in PA to blam

    Part of me wonders if Obozo’s antics are part of the plan to pitch Hillary in 2016.

    The left can’t push its full agenda through a candidate who’s up for election or when a major election is around the corner. After the mid-terms pass, Barry will be free to go town and decree everything that the liberals have wanted to do. He can be their lightning rod so that the liberals in Congress can save face.

    In 2016, the left disposes of him like a dirty diaper and Hillary emerges as an “alternative” - who will coincidentally be against repealing anything that Barry has done, but that’s how the media will spin her candidacy. You can already see this playing out in spats over foreign policy.

    The ignorant American public, too stupefied to tell that Hillary is simply a continuation of Obozo, vote her in for office, and we get another 4 years of socialism.

    Let’s be realistic: you can’t even count on the Republicans to provide token opposition these days. Glenn Beck is showering the illegal invaders with gifts; Willard Romney the open socialist and Paul Ryan are off promoting an amnesty book. Boner and the gobbler (McConnell) are wringing their hands.

    I could almost understand the Democrats having to manufacture their own opposition.

    Cato in PA to driftdiver

    “Every company is going to use your data against you. Its simply too enticing and valuable not too.”

    Not if you protect yourself.

    It is essentially impossible to guard your privacy if you use a smartphone with a proprietary operating system like iOS or Windows Phone. Because Apple and Microsoft don’t allow you to examine the inner workings of their respective mobile OSs, you’re limited in what changes you can make, and you can never be sure that they haven’t left a backdoor for themselves, the government, or whoever else.

    Android is different, though. Anyone can examine its inner workings and make their own customized version of Android with the “bad stuff” taken out. If you install a custom version of Android from a reliable developer that includes either App Ops, Privacy Guard, or my all-time favorite, XPrivacy, you will be able to ensure that most of your data is protected. (XPrivacy can completely stop data leaks, but its learning curve is quite steep.)

    As another FRiend has already pointed out, XDA Developers is the #1 site when it comes to stuff like this.

    I realize that none of it is very well-documented, though, so if anyone reading this would like a hands-on walkthrough of how to take control of your Android device, send me a message. I’d be glad to help. I’ve been mucking with Android devices for years now and I’m a former technical writer, so I know a thing or two about how to explain complicated concepts to the average audience.

    Cato in PA to SeekAndFind

    People who think that the Windows 8 debacle is the result of Microsoft’s greed and hubris are only partially correct. The elephant in the room is that this is a direct consequence of proprietary software.

    If a very unpopular decision is made in the Linux world, not everyone has to go along with it because Linux isn’t proprietary. There are a -lot- of very poor whiz-bang user interfaces in Linux, but instead of being forced to use them, I’m free to use something that’s geared toward people who know what they’re doing.

    People who use Windows and OS X will never have that ability. I envy you guys for some of the convenience features that Linux doesn’t have, but I definitely don’t miss being bossed around by ultra-liberal corporations like Microsoft.

    Service. Have you never used Amazon before? I can’t tell you how many times people I know have been through hell trying to get anything out of Sears.

    Besides, an organization without retail stores is inevitably going to have an edge over an organization that has warehouses -and- a large network of retail stores.

    And I’m saying all of this as an avowed opponent of Amazon (for technological reasons). I just can’t stand it when people - especially people who claim to be conservative - start trying to make the case for raising taxes in the interest of “fairness,” which is the gist of what you’re saying.

    It’s a good thing we have cryptocurrency as a hedge against government intrusion into the Internet. No, Bitcoin isn’t completely anonymous, but there are up-and-coming developments which promise to be closer to it.

    Cato in PA to TexasRepublic

    “The biggest shortcoming of Linux as far as I am concerned is the lack of iTunes or an iTunes clone as a software interface to synchronize an iPhone connected to a Linux computer.”

    It isn’t a shortcoming of Linux so much as a shortcoming of proprietary software companies that won’t even consider adding support for a platform that may not allow them to lock down their bloatware with DRM and other restrictions.

    The farther you go along in Linux, the more you find that there are alternatives to popular proprietary software services. For example, instead of using iTunes, I ripped all of my CDs to .FLAC files, installed Madsonic on a Linux mini-server that I built, and now I can stream my whole music collection from anywhere via Madsonic mini-server.

    It’s all a matter of taking that feeling of frustration that brought you to Linux and applying it to other areas. Do you want to be dealing with expensive products made by companies unresponsive to users? Seek out alternatives.

    “I would also like to see a professional video editor for Linux.”

    Did you know that Lightworks is now available for Linux? You might also try Flowblade or Kdenlive.

    Yes, it’s the best: you’ve got all the software you need through the official repositories and, since you don’t have to sign up for an account or give credit card information, you get to keep your privacy.

    Depending on which distribution you use, there are often plenty of community repositories to supplement what doesn’t make it in the official ones. In OpenSUSE, you can go to and it’ll search through the offical repos and all the community repositories in the Open Build Service.

    Matt is right that we have to teach and empower users. There are two schools of thought on how to reach the general public: dumb everything down for them or bring them up to our level.

    If you try to dumb down Linux, you could lose your base in the process, just as the GOP has lost conservatives by dumbing down its values. I think it’s better to find users who are eager to improve themselves and reach out to them.

    Will you reach fewer everyday users this way? Yes, but essentially nobody has the resources to compete with Google, Apple, and Microsoft in the dumbing down, heavily advertised department.

    You wouldn’t say the entire Christian church is corrupt just because there are a number of fallen denominations, right? Neither do I believe that the Tea Party is dead just because of Tea Party Express, which is just one group within the Tea Party movement.

    I distinctly remember being unimpressed with Tea Party Express back when it and Tea Party Patriots were jostling for mindshare. Tea Party Express seemed more like a whitewashing organization to paint dilapidated establishment candidates with a fresh coat of conservatism.

    We certainly shouldn’t stick our heads in the hand and pretend that this isn’t a problem, though. Corruption has become so rampant in society that I literally will not donate to an organization unless I can see for myself exactly how it’s spending its money and what its costs go toward. We should view “conservative” candidates and organizations with a healthy dose of skepticism. Follow the money.

    This site is as good a conservative cause as any. I’m proud to be a monthly donor, and I hope that those of you who can’t commit to that will at least chip in a small amount so we can keep going.

    ‘So three weeks later, Beck urged the government to release its information on Alharbi or else Beck would “expose” him.’

    I remember when I actually used to believe Beck’s hype: how he would ‘expose’ people, how he had confidential information from ‘unnamed sources,’ and all that jazz.

    What a fool I was.

    You can make put the MSM in its place if you know what to say. All it takes is charisma.

    Look at the clips of what Newt said during the primaries on YouTube. Remember when the “open marriage” allegations against Newt came up? John King asked him if he’d “like to comment on it, “and Newt responded “no, but I will” and tore into the news media and King personally for opening a debate with a question like that.

    You might be right. Part of the reason I threw my support behind Newt - which I later apologized for - was because he was such a good debater. Really, what we needed was someone with good credentials (Rick Perry), good ideas (Herman Cain), or at least good debate skills (Newt).

    What the Republicans got was a candidate with socialist credentials (Massachusetts gov), no good ideas (Romneycare), and no debate skills. Well, Willard got under Bathhouse Barry’s skin in the first debate, but he absolutely tanked from that point on.
