Latest Lenovo system update wipes phone


Just Great!

The latest system update for my Lenovo K910, Dual SIM Dual Active, wiped the phone clean. Contacts, phone call and SMS logs, pictures, installed apps.... Everything just gone.

This is what it got updated to:

Lenovo: Chat Tech's Uninformed and Without Managers, Warranties not honored.


In my continuing quest to find a Dual Sim Dual Active phone, I online chatted with a Lenovo employee. It didn't go well, but Lenovo's sales rep has created my new favorite phrase.

is that a phone?

It's days later and I still start laughing every time I think of it.

For whatever reason, I was laughing to myself recently about the old Myth Busters Archimedes' Ancient Death Ray episode where they used 100s of kids, with flat mirrors, and couldn't to set fire to a boat [1]. Well, duh! Anyone who's used a parabolic mirror to melt copper in seconds can only wonder if the whole thing was a setup. The whole point to concentrating solar energy is to NOT use a flat reflective surface. A simple round (large, ~4 ft.) piece of polished bronze mounted with a bolt in the middle to provide for changing the concavity to move the focal point is all Archimedes would have needed to set any house, or boat, on fire [2].

Okay, moving on, that's not really the topic of this post, but it did get me to thinking about concentrating solar heat energy and why there isn't a cheap solar to electric generator on the market?

GNOME 3, KDE 4 Developers: "We're doing it our way. Suck it up Princess!"


Has the entire Linux desktop development space gone suicidal? Were they just bought off by Microsoft, to make the two most used desktops a complete mess?

Seriously, developers, we just want a desktop that works. Keep your bells, whistles, and we don't care about the users attitudes to yourselves AND STOP thinking it's okay to shove stuff down our throats. You aren't Microsoft. I'm sorry you feel we the users have to suffer like Microsoft users suffer. Good Bye KDE. Good Bye GNOME.

Which left me hanging. Seriously, I've just pitched out the two most used Linux desktops out there . . .
