Taliban commander turns self in... for reward on ‘Wanted’ poster
Mohammad Ashan, a mid-level Taliban commander in Paktika province, strolled toward a police checkpoint in the district of Sar Howza with a wanted poster bearing his own face. He demanded the finder’s fee referenced on the poster: $100.
Afghan officials, perplexed by the man’s misguided motives, arrested him on the spot. Ashan is suspected of plotting at least two attacks on Afghan security forces. His misdeeds prompted officials to plaster the district with hundreds of so-called “Be on the Lookout” posters emblazoned with his name and likeness.
“We asked him, ‘Is this you?’ Mohammad Ashan answered with an incredible amount of enthusiasm, ‘Yes, yes, that’s me! Can I get my award now?’” recalled SPC Matthew Baker.
A biometric scan confirmed that the man in Afghan custody was the insurgent they had been looking for.
Just got this tab. It was preinstalled with Android 3.1. It crashed overnight for no reason. In fact it crashed everyday for no reason - while on standby.
After an update to Android 3.2, it stop crashing.
Its very slippery.
The glass face is very slippery.
The plastic back is very slippery.
It will slip off your hands unless you get a case for it.
It feels solid. It feels heavy.
It is about the size of a netbook of the same screen size. It fits in a case designed for a netbook, but very loosely.
It connected to my Logitec DiNovo Mini right away. I was able to type on the keyboard and move a mouse pointer with the built in touch pad.
I was able to pair the tab with my printer but it would not print. When I try, I get a prompt that tells me it can only print to Samsung printers.
There are two speakers. The stereo sound was good in a room and perhaps outside if its not loud.
There are two. The camera app lets you take pictures with either the front or rear cameras. They can be switch with a single tap.
There is an LED flash. The LED can be used as a flashlight. I found many apps that let you use the LED for this function.
There is no option to plug in an SD/micro SD card. They sell an adapter for adding a micro SD card. There's also an adapter for plugging USB devices such as a keyboard, mouse, or USB Flash drive. Which is kind of messy. Those should have been built in. I would stick to bluetooth accessories.
The Logitech wireless solar keyboard K750 (PC version) is very thin with two amorphous silicon solar panels.
It seems very little light is needed to maintain the internal [rechargeable] manganese lithium cell. The button cell (ML2032) is replaceable and you can get the cell from Logitech or on ebay. On ebay just put in ML2032 and make sure its the rechargeable one.
This one piece keyboard has no other ways to charge the internal battery.
The short travel keys can be annoying coming from a full desktop keyboard.
There are no separate multimedia keys like volume up/down. They are integrated into the function keys F1-F12. The power off/sleep button is annoyingly placed next to the volume up key and just above the backspace key. The windows application key seems missing, but its actually activated by pressing [FN] + [Print Screen].
The Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock indicators are missing. To see if Num/Caps/Scroll Lock is activated, you have to download onscreen display software from logitech.
After all proper drivers have been installed, no complaints here.
Users manual and software:
None are packaged with the keyboard. You have to download everything. The users guide is a simple 20 page pdf file and half in English. If you hate bloat software, then you'll like Logitech's method. You only download the software you want.
This is not a bluetooth compatible keyboard. Logitech uses their own 2.4GHz wireless interface. The USB adapter is very small so that you can keep it in your laptop.
Experiments show how two people at two different heights precieve time differently. A person at a cliff for example would age slower than a person at sea level - by a few billionths of a second in a lifetime.
I just installed SkyFire for my cell phone 15 minutes ago - unbelievable!
Just when they said that Windows Mobile is dead.
SkyFire will play Flash media on Windows Mobile, Android, pretty much anything. I was able to view Flash banners, YouTube (which is flash), even Flash games.
Adobe themselves won't give you flash for your cell phone.
If your phone has arrow keys, up-down-left-right, clicking on any arrow key will produce a mouse pointer - just like Opera mobile browser.
SkyFire not only lets you watch embeded youtube videos, it lets you watch streaming media. For example, the browser's default homepage has a link to live TV so you can watch for example CNN, Fox, NBC and CSPAN or live radio.
SkyFire loads faster than Opera mobile. But I think Opera is a fuller over-all browser. Whereas SkyFire concentrates on media such as flash and streaming media.
What do they get for giving you a free browser full of goodies?
After you've installed and launched the browser, there's an optional login link. Note: I said optional and that its a link. So I guess they make money by collecting your personal information - optionally for now anyway. And as of now, there's no advertising.
All this from a 15 minute observation -- and I've never heard of this before.
