re: We need to return to the days that you must own land to vote - Korkstand
[quote]I have my stances on certain things.[/quote]Well this particular stance is pretty out there. How much land is required? Can I buy just 1 square foot? Can I pool my money with thousands of people and get part of an acre? Would you set a minimum amount of land required? By acre or by va...

Facebook and Messenger apps drain Android battery (iPhone too?) - Korkstand
The apps do not show up as heavy users in your battery stats, but they constantly do shite in the background that drains your battery. They claim to be working on fixing this, but it's been years now and I haven't seen much improvement. If your phone doesn't last through the day, uninstall both th...

[quote]We’ve discussed this with our CPA, if we move our residence to TX we would save about $30-40K a year in taxes.[/quote]This depends on many factors, but for most people the total tax burden would be pretty similar in LA and TX. The bigger difference is the cost of living is much higher in Texa...

re: Redistrict from Cook Political Report hits the nail on the head as to why Rispone lost - Korkstand
[quote]There were about 40,000 more votes for gov, than Sec of state. Would that many people go vote, and ignore the Sec of State? Seems odd to me.[/quote]It happens every single election. People are more likely to vote for what they care about. [quote]If you were filling out voter cards I can see...

re: Google releasing RCS in the US - Korkstand
[quote]No end to end encryption and with users being default funneled through the major carriers RCS servers.

re: Google releasing RCS in the US - Korkstand
[quote]RCS is the wrong path. It is a corporate takeover of messaging. We will regret it if we allow RCS to succeed.[/quote]:lol: RCS is just a protocol standard, like SMS. Implemented correctly, it should be carrier-agnostic, device-agnostic, OS-agnostic, and app-agnostic. It is the exact opposi...

This is built into Google's Messages app, so no new app needed. I believe...
