i can't believe how janky it has gotten. Sure, if you have a project running, i guess it works. But as soon as you need to migrate a board or project over from one instance to another instance, ooh boy. Two different import functions, both not doing what it promises on the box. No easy migration possible, in short.
But again, if you have it running, and no need to move some stuff to a new instance, by all means, go ahead.
But think twice when you're asked to use a new interface, or use the nextgen project type. not worth it.
Nice. I did read a review on the FXtec that says i can use shortcuts on the physical keys. Yes, please, more of that.
Has anyone read about that having that capability on the Unihertz Titan? I do like that format better than the landscape slider (reminds me of an old AT&T phone i used to have, can't remember the name)
Also, would you be able to run the Blackberry apps on that machine, to make it behave more like the Passport or the KeyOne/Key2 ?
And then then killer question... would Verizon allow this phone on their network.
How are the bolds still working? 3G, and still have native apps? I had to drop my Passport, due to android getting older and some banking apps no longer being supported... And the KeyOne is getting long in the tooth as well. Finding a Key2 here that works / is approved on Verizon is difficult...
In the US the Chase banking app also caused problems. My Blackberry Passport was working fine, until Chase said 'nu-uh, not on this Android'. So i got a KeyOne, which is now also out of luck on Android updates.
So yeah, that StrandHogg thing - reality. Got infected with that (sympton was that i saw an app named 'Apps' that would reappear after deleting and rebooting the phone).
Had to wipe clean my handset to get rid of it :-(
And absolutely no idea what site i visited to get it infected.
Anecdotal, and havent found a pattern yet: a number of laptops that received one or more of the latest updates are now bricked. Apparently during the upgrade a BSOD happened, and somehow killed something important, thus the user no longer able to reboot, safe mode, etc. and undo the latest installs.
I've put updating my laptop on hold for a month, until i hear/read about the all-clear...
The closest I got to something remotely similar was while doing a software training of a new customer in Kuwait. About a month or so before the second Iraq war. Air raid sirens went off. Attendees all laughed, saying 'yeah, normal, just exercises or prep for when it really happens. it would have been announced in the local newspapers.'
That was my code brown moment :-)
