Moderate House Republicans suspected they were being played. For weeks they’d been negotiating with Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows in a quest to clinch an immigration deal that could pass the House. But whenever the two sides got close, they said, immigration hard-liners would ask for more. Then, on the morning of a scheduled June 21 vote, moderates got their hands on an explosive missive from the Freedom Caucus’ top staffer: an email warning group members that voters would punish them for backing any bill with a whiff of “amnesty.” Story Continued Below “This is bull—-,” Rep. Tom MacArthur scolded Meadows at a meeting in Speaker Paul Ryan’s office that day. The New Jersey Republican, who had worked closely with Meadows in the past and wanted a deal, demanded to know why Meadows appeared to be backing away from a bill he helped craft. Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), a leader of the pro-immigration reform centrists, read the Freedom … [Read more...] about ‘I thought you were my friend’: Immigration meltdown exposes GOP hostilities
Why did i choose you
Do you prefer smartphones made of glass or metal? It was an innocent question, a response to what we’re seeing as a current trend around the smartphone industry, as flagships – possibly even including the coming Pixel 3 – go for all glass front and back, leaving the days of metal behind. And those are the only two materials that are being seen in most new phones that we cross paths with. The days of polycarbonates and plastics seem to be over, while ceramic was tried but makes are moving away from it given the additional weight that material inflicts on a device.Now, it’s not like this hasn’t been coming for awhile. Roughly two years ago, we asked you to tell us your favorite material for a smartphone, with metal/aluminium smashing the competition. Glass was in distance in second. Of course, there is a tradeoff here. Unlike metal shields, glass is far more permeable for radio signals for improved wireless and LTE performance, along with the much … [Read more...] about We asked, you told us: Metal vs Glass, so why did Plastic get you talking?
We’re chugging along with Why’d You Push That Button. We’ve got a few more episodes left in the season, and today’s is about music social networks. Kaitlyn loves stalking her friends’ Spotify feeds, whereas I keep my account hidden from everyone. I just want to listen to Britney Spears in peace. I can’t have Kaitlyn texting me every time I listen, you know? Spotify used to let people direct message tracks, but it has since removed that feature, which just leaves us with the friend feed. Why isn’t Spotify building out its social features? Does the company hate us? We brought Jordan McMahon, a social music fan, as well as The Verge’s own Micah Singleton onto the show to discuss why they like seeing their friends’ activity. Then we talk to Charlie Kaplan, the CEO of Cymbal, a social music app, about why his company is shutting down and why it’s so hard to make a sticky social music experience. You can listen to the episode here … [Read more...] about Why did the Instagram of music fail?

So your fingers can be dirty or wet. Something that the others won't work under those conditions. Not to mention its on the side of the phone where the power button is. Therefore leaving more screen and less bezel on the front face of the phone. Z5 has the best finger print scanner on the … [Read more...] about Comments for : 6 key reasons why the Apple iPhone 6s Plus is not as good as the Galaxy Note5

I also didn't know that the logo itself was open "source". So I guess all those T-shirts on eBay aren't counterfeit after all. posted on 27 Oct 2014, 06:45 1 20. jroc74 (Posts: 6019; Member since: 30 Dec 2010) Same here. posted on 27 Oct 2014, 21:56 1 33. sgodsell (Posts: 5789; Member since: 16 Mar 2013) Such propaganda from Microsoft. Considering the public was first introduced to WP at MWC back in February 2010. So this February will be 5 years and WP still has a tiny fraction of the smart phone market share. 34. jroc74 (Posts: 6019; Member since: 30 Dec 2010) lol...Exactly. So many ppl eat it up tho.
