    Not my cup of tea, but perfect examples of things that could never phone home from behind the Linux firewall.

    In any case - there is a bit more info on this phenom at:


    Lookout is claiming that stuff wasn't malware, it was simply using AirPush advertising and Symantec didn't know how to deal with it.

    Others are saying who cares, why take the chance, while still others are saying, now that Google knows, it'll be off the Market anyways.

    Meanwhile, yours truly will repeat the mantra I started about a certain app back in the epic thread: control your phone, control your apps. :) ;)

    Ok, let's remember, we got a number of complaints for gun talk in the epic thread, if those crop up again, we'll have to restrict that. Yeah, I know, bad mod. But now that everyone knows me, I get to share having a carry permit, and far preferring my wheel guns anymore to my autoloaders. (We really are puddycats on staff, even if we seem too liberal at times.) Want to do bad things to nice people? Want to not? :D

    Anyway, please try to all stay pals and work that out among yourselves, cheers, thanks.

    And we do have a 2nd Amendment thread in Politics and Current Affairs if anyone really wants to drill into that subject. :)

    Ok - Downton Abbey is on, my new fave TV show, so you all be cool and I'll be back. ;)

    I would hope there wouldn't be any complaints. I would hope at this point if someone had a problem they would present their side. And if its people complaining that aren't contributing in any way and we had to stop because of them I would be even more disappointed in that judgement call. And that's not just about the gun topic, it goes for any topic. Just my thought on it though.
    I do have to say I like finding out these tidbits about everyone.

    I'm going to have to look into using droidwall.

    Enjoy your show Early

    While I can't carry, my home is my castle. My friend, a homicide detective, fixed me up with a 9mm S&W, a 38 Ruger and a 12-gauge. With training of course. And a couple of nice knives. So far, so good. ;)

    I Agree with your post BB^^^^

    Question for you or anyone else. How do I get Franco's Kernel App to download the version I want? I crack flashed today and got his app but I want 13.1. I am testing 14.4 until then. Thanks in advance!

    You're in luck - I happen to have that kernel in the drop box you share with me. (I think)
    If its not there then let me know and I'll give you the link to the file elsewhere.

    Well, I exported the Franco kernel in there, but it didn't have a #. I will flash anyway to see if it is the right one! Thanks BB! Report back soon!

    EDIT: it is, it is!

    What are your voltage settings if any...did you use hot plug?

    Thanks BeeBs...testing out a new nickname here.

    I'm using conservative. 350 min, 920 max. Getting great battery. And the only minute lag on occasion is when I first unlock. But its momentary.

    I don't have any pics of mine, but it's a lot like the Rambo knife if you remember that. :D

    Happy to chill the weaponry banter if ANYone is uncomfortable. I would hope, as BB said, that if anyone feels put off one iota, just speak up. I 100% respect opposing views (although this is really more show and tell than anything political). Since this is a Lounge area, with miles of O.T. chatter, I hope that we are within limits and not stepping on anyone's toes.

    Anyway, I think my magazine is empty now. ;)

    If opinions are being solicited, I respectfully submit my vote on the anti-weaponry banter side. Sorry.

    So, here's the thing.

    It's not about being off-topic (never was).

    It's about it being a sensitive topic.

    And some people are shy, that's their right.

    So, not because of just one public expression of discomfort, but for the reports received, I gotta do that voodoo that I do:

    Please take discussion of weaponry to appropriate threads in the Political lounge.

    Think of this like, this is the electronics hangout in the shop, guns and knives are one department over. I am sure you understand, and everyone can respect everyone. :) ;)

    Cheers, thanks!

    I will respect it. My question becomes why does it have to be in the politics section? If its the lounge shouldn't it be allowed?
    I promise I'm not trying to instigate, I'm trying to understand the reasoning.
    I'd have stopped anyway because one of our friends asked nicely. Its a curiosity thing.

    So....does that rule out lock picking? (Probably my favorite and by far my most relaxing hobby) :eek:

    Hi kids! Been off for quite a while. Retired. Enjoyed the holidays. Missed the banter. Am sure it's probably already been discussed at length, but could someone give me a quick response as to why my phone has started to randomly shut off and reboot? Didn't have this problem when I got it on release day. Any wisdom for Grandma? And thanks in advance.

    Just my guess at context. :)

    If you want to try to guess what that weird pistol was Decker carried in Bladerunner, Film/TV lounge would be best ; discussing the merits of character weapons in video games would go best in (you guessed it) Games.

    General interest guns threads ok in the Lounge, we've had many before and will again.

    This particular banter seemed more personal protection and political from the posts so far, so I thought maybe people didn't know we have some good threads for that in the Political area.

    Just pretty much what you would expect from mod staff for recommendations. :)
