Android 4.4 - KitKat

Postby viking60 » 24 Feb 2014, 14:10

Well time to have a look at Android Again to see what Microsoft and Nokia are going to base their next phone on. And since I do not use a smartphone because I resent the thought of having no privacy I prefer to check it out in VirtualBox.

That way I can stay hip and participate in discussions about it - and still wholeheartedly agree with Richard Stallman who refuses to use a smartphone.

According to him; Smartphones are Stalins wet dream +1

So Virtualbox it is then. Android 4.4 has a cute name - Kit-Kat so Gizmo does approve and I have to accept all the dirty Google terms to set it up and accept their lousy privacy policy - which is kind of a blackmail 'cause you can't say no.

But ok then here I am with this nice OS and everything works out of the box. I have found out how to navigate around Android and set up a wallpaper to my liking.

Yup the navigation makes sense. My children who have smartphones; are always angry with my clumsy fingers ruining everything - not anymore :snooty: I have got the hang of it now +1

Here are some news about Android KitKat

And I am an expert on it now 8-)
So I can safely borrow their phones again...
Now it is time to dive under the hood of this thing.
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.

Right now, I have no choice but to have a smartphone. It's all I've got:

I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.
