Probably late to the party, but the phone this couple-months-old article discusses will soon have devkits available. It is rumored the kits could be around $150! Always good to have competition.

@kylerankin When you see cheap electronics, realize that often the hardware cost is subsidized by spyware agreements and selling user data.

That feeling when you follow someone for their great top post, and their post frequency drowns your entire feed with their self-important bullshit.
Don't take my unfollow the wrong way. You're clever and entertaining and I like you... For like 3 posts a day. But your stream of consciousness is a fire hose.

I’m seeing lots of posts today about how #Facebook is tracking Android users via the SDK.
Is this really a shock to people? Like, really? This is Facebook we’re talking about here.

Even if you don’t though, by not having a FB account you significantly reduce the amount of data they have on you anyway.
