I prefer to look at median inflation-adjusted income, I think that tells a story of what's happening to a country's people more than the GDP which isn't accurate because it's so financialized

No it's good to know - you remember the old GI-Joe saying lol.

Out of curiousity I've looked into GDP and it doesn't really seem to accurately represent growth either... any thoughts on that? Or replacements?

Ha no doubt there, the derivatives market is so bad. I think debt-based monetary systems are a little fucked too, don't think I'm excusing it, I'm just explaining it haha

Interesting, didn't think of it that way - well, I think we can all agree then that the "derivative" section is a little fucked lol

Well in a debt-based monetary system, that's exactly what you'd expect actually. Every dollar of debt created immediately creates a dollar of value as well. That's the basis of our monetary system after we got off the gold standard in 1972 in the US

So I guess no, it is not illegal.

I only run it on a galaxy (the original) and had to get the firmware for the wireless communication (wifi, I guess Bluetooth) from a cyanogen mod.

I've never had updates from it, but it transformed an old phone in a great portable media player.

Could be. Unfortunately, people have made the iphone a part of their identity. It's fairly difficult to part with your identity, or objectively criticise it, but it's possible.

Could also be the Chinese nationalistic backlash from arresting the Huawei exec. I saw something about that in the link, but i'm not sure.

Could also be that wise investors recognize that the valuation of most publicly traded companies is overinflated, and they're "selling high" in terms of investment strategy.

Could be that AI high speed trading had sequential glitches. No one really understand how this crazy AI actually works.

It's interesting that other industry related stocks haven't been similarly impacted.

If your company purposely cripples your product to make loyal customers buy new products of yours, your company deserves to fail and fail hard.

The expected monetary value that would be returned back to you if you had invested. Basically another word for 'profit'. The common phrase is 'the return on an investment'

How does LineageOS with microg compare to Repiclant. Does replicant keep up with the security patches or is completely separate.

Do you use replicant and are you happy with it? Any drawbacks?

Military sales are similar to inexperienced gamblers playing Texas Holdem.

The govt is dealt a pair of aces, and declare "all in!" and pushes all of they're money in.

Everyone else folds.

The government claims all of the money that was just pushed into the pot, and declares, "Look at all the money I just won!" ;-)

M: Hey

T: Hey, how are you?

M: A bit down...

T: Awww, how much?

M: Just 7%

T: That's $64.9 BILLION DOLLARS!

M: LOL, yeah it sounds like a lot, could probably feed a continent with it. Ah well.... Look at it from the brightside! next year we will have asshole recognition! So your phone has a 50/50 change of detecting it has fallen into the toilet!

T: Why 50/50? It has front- and back-facing cameras!

M: Because if it identifies an asshole, it could be seeing a user's face.

My phone is too janky for LineageOS.

Got the same prolem, S5 'Neo' isn't supported and the unoffial Linage ROMs for it seem to have bad connection.

I have heard that location reporting is a core OS feature, as part of the Play store

I believe it's Play services, but you can delete the playstore andplay services and then use Yalp instead of the play store while blacklisting the downgraded playstore (so it won't update again and install play services).

Some apps will complain that play services is missing but usually will work fine anyhow (Just set their 'messages' to off, so it doesn't up up everyday). {You can use Google maps, it will complain on startup about the 'play services' missing [Probably because that is the ALWAYS ON connection to google] }

You can do this without rooting and without using the system-app remover. Just disable the 'apps' (like play store/services) by deleting them, stopping them and blacklisting them in Yalp so Yalp doesn't download 'updates' for them.

  • Disclaimer: I'm not sure about newer phone provided with newer preinstalled playstores (removing it makes it revert to the ROM's default version, so maybe newer phone it gets more dificult.

Well... that's a good point but Saudi is mostly buying US and Israeli manufactured arms, mostly paid for with Israeli and US dollars given to Saudi either through oil purchases or foreign aid.

Also the UAE and Saudi Arabia are at the top, who supply much of the world's oil. Saudi produces about 13% of the world's supply, and UAE about 4%.

Oh system mover for deleting Google apps sounds cool, I might give that a go. My phone is too janky for LineageOS. I have heard that location reporting is a core OS feature, as part of the Play store, but any step in the right direction is a good one.

Yeah damn those fancy apps all full of ads and slowness. Hopefully 2019 will be the Linux phone breakout year with Purism setting the trend. They've got like 50 apps ready to roll.

With Yalp store and F-Droid (or G-Droid {alternative GUI}) and deletion of play services and other system apps with system-mover (IIRC) {So you can move 'google system' apps to normal apps and remove them} you can transform a stockROM into a google free one, while getting the rom updates.

Though I think linux ROMs will do better in the future of taking over android phones. It's just that people somehow prefer fancy gui interaction bloat over minimal usefull apps. Google already has gotton a few fines from the EU for their Microsoft like practices (microsoft having IE per default etc.).

There is hope once the 'fanciness' hype wears off, but the MSM isn't helping in the promo side of things.
