Unlocking the Motorola Bootloader

Certain Android phones ship in a locked down state to prevent the owner of the device from modifying the way it operates. The linked article is a description of how one person broke that lock. In the US, unlocking a phone in this manner is a felony punishable by fines and imprisonment*.

Have a nice DMCA,

* The latter may just be a tip of the hat to the prison-industrial complex, for which no amount of incarceration is ever sufficient, let alone gratuitous or obscene. Please stop and think about that for a moment as you burn your iPhone.

I wonder how long it'll be until Google Glasses integrates a tattletale feature, so your significant other can track how many times you've looked at people and what body parts you were looking at when you did.

I imagine the gooble glaze is just looking for some kind of interference or jamming device transmitter I imagine a direct lazer beam would take it out. maybe should start a kickstarter program.....

High yield air blast nuke to generate an EMP. Even if it doesn't affect the glasses, it'll at least take out the data center where all the data will be analyzed.

Personally I can't wait for Microsoft to come out with a Google Glasses competitor.

It'll feature "Son of Clippy" that provides helpful suggestions based on what you're looking at.
