I'm going to disagree with you. EthanCello makes two claims as to why "Linux-Based OS" is a viable answer. OS X meets only one of the two, and thus should not be included in this particular nomination. » 7/17/14 6:51am 7/17/14 6:51am

So, I think I've broken my Nexus 4. Just got it in August, and now part of the screen is unresponsive to touch. Pixels still show colors and no visible screen cracks, but it has been driving me crazy this entire week. » 12/20/13 12:50pm 12/20/13 12:50pm

It is also useful to note that Java is the language for AP Computer Science A and (on a smaller scale) IB Computer Science SL/HL. So, for those of you who are High School students, learning Java might allow you to take the AP exam or take the IB Computer Science course for college credit. » 12/05/13 12:34pm 12/05/13 12:34pm

The problem is that not every computer will default to Dvorak. In fact, I think I can safely say that, except your own computers, you will not run into another computer that is set to Dvorak. » 10/18/13 12:09pm 10/18/13 12:09pm

I'm also testing out the Themer beta. Overall, I think it needs a little more work until it becomes what I would love for it to be. The fact that it can do themes well is great, but it oftentimes comes without the flexibility for other users that makes it shine. » 10/11/13 3:08pm 10/11/13 3:08pm

[Android] Themer - Got the beta through the Lifehacker reader opportunity, and I have had the opportunity to play with it. Overall, I think this could be a very useful tool for applying themes very quickly. For me, however, the software is not ready for prime time just yet (hence the fact that it is in beta).

Double checked with my Nexus 4 as well; saying "Google" instead of "OK, Google" works as well. Might be more with the Moto X than with the application itself (or still rolling out to phones with 4.3). » 10/07/13 12:07pm 10/07/13 12:07pm

I would suggest auto-updating everything, then stopping the app that you do not want to download by canceling it from the play store. It should continue on with the updates, but that app will not update afterwards. » 10/04/13 7:32pm 10/04/13 7:32pm
