Politics / Re: Read The Viral Email Allegedly Sent By Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau To ICC by BlackBaron: 7:58am
Credibility was tarnished when I read 'Hezbollah' in the same sentence as BH.

Two completely divergent terror groups fighting out each other in the Levant especially the one BH likes to attach itself to.

Phones / Re: Android, Anyone? Part II by BlackBaron: 10:44am On Oct 20
I noticed a lot of Galaxy S2 had 'insufficient memory' problem.
After battling my dad's S2 I came upon a solution and not too keen on rooting I found a solution via androidcentral.

Simply dial *#9900# and then delete "Delete dumpstate/logcat". Press home to exit.

Did that and over a gig was freed!
Might be helpful for some

Love this.
I've struggled lately looking all around and this is mostly what I see and hear especially in the Nigerian setting. I had also convinced myself that it is a major reason Nigerians love 'Churchin' (my own coined word) considering the economic climate.

Politics / Re: Why Cant Nigerians Resort To Self Help? by BlackBaron: 5:09pm On Oct 06
Nigerians have been doing 'self help' since the beginning of time.

They generate their own water, electricity, pay for security, contribute to buy electricity poles, transformers and all...

It is our leaders that haven't stopped milking dry, fundings meant for development.

I smell conspiracy. If the plane was shotdown shouldn't the pilot be dead. People dnt survive plane crashes. But a plan taken down byananti aircraft gun.....has a pilot that survived without major or minor injuries

Gosh!
Ignorance is not an excuse, go read up on ejector seats on jet fighters.

Of course, a helicopter doesn't have one...the blades are right over the pilot's head.
Politics / Re: The Last Minutes Of Alpha Jet – NAF 466 by BlackBaron: 8:03am On Oct 04
What sort of kindergarten story is this?

Why would a pilot go on a 'kamikaze' strafing run and then eject at the last minute?
Knowing fully well he'll suffer a worse fate especially flying beyond enemies line...

Full condolences to the family.

Dottune: This is seriously getting annoying, just heard it on Radio now, but the only question I have to ask is: if the y had supposedly shot the Air Craft, one how come the so called "Air force Official" was able to wear his uniform and also wield a Gun, with his Full Uniform.
That's a Boko bastard wearing a stolen NA desert uniform.

otijah: who is to be blamed now madaki or the journalist whom he spoke with. For me APC is a party that has come to bring confusion in Nigeria. I hope all APC supporters will wake up and see what am seeing in the future
You think there'd be a future if fraud cases like the SA debacle would cease to be investigated?

Amazing logic...
You truly deserve those ruling over you.
Family / Re: A Thread For "Everything Polygamy"! by BlackBaron: 7:41pm On Sep 23
tpia:

Its cultural, its very difficult to practice in some cultures but easier in others.
Indeed it may be cultural, but alas our people sort of damn the consequences of which they were once carrying.

My great F was a very wealthy man, had quite a bit andmmuch more. Once he died, others were shut off. My grand was from the first wife and also the first son. Connivance rubbed him of his inheritance. The eventual benefactor's generation still enjoys the proceeds till this day. They can all choose to sit at home and still be comfortable...talking about inheritance since 1930-40!
Family / Re: A Thread For "Everything Polygamy"! by BlackBaron: 7:14pm On Sep 23
Hmmn... Polygamy.

Not my cup of tea.
The cracks if there was never any, suddenly sprouts up on the demise of the father.

Not a legacy I'm prepared to bequeath to my unborn children!
I'm not from one but great grandfather and grand father practised it or a loose form of it. Not conducive, the aftereffects...

It only took a couple of speech/speeches/exchanges from someone after my grandpa's passing on to send faultlines wider than the Grand Canyon in between.

Pfft.
So many learners here...

If you'd lived in Lagos, you'd have seen various campaigns for non SWeners.
Though I think you'll have to have a heavy following plus endorsements from prominent people; Obas and so in Lagos for you to pull it off
Politics / Re: Nigerians Spent Millions On Parties but 200,000 School Fee Is A Problem -Oyedepo by BlackBaron: 7:58am On Sep 20
Not all Nigerians can/do spend millions on parties and of course those that can do send off their wards to private universities.

Though I support quality education, I'll not go as far as putting down others for not being able to gather 200 grand for school fees.

Phones / Re: Apple Unveils The 4.7-inch Iphone 6 With Retina HD Screen by BlackBaron: 4:36pm On Sep 10
Decale:

I know people who had used iPhones for years without a dent. Not that they're careful or anything but the phone is more durable than most other oems

Can't say the same for the Samsung users out there. Even my s4 cracked after 8months of usage before selling for the Oneplus

That Sir, is conjecture.
I also know quite a number of people with broken/cracked iphone screens...But I stopped short of calling iphone 'fragile'
Phones / Re: Apple Unveils The 4.7-inch Iphone 6 With Retina HD Screen by BlackBaron: 4:20pm On Sep 10
You sure or you know only a few people with iphones? No manufacturer has gone on to claim that they have a more durable smartphone. There's a saying that 'these days, smartphones are more fragile than eggs'.

Fanboy battles all over here...no smartphone has the ultimate edge over others.
Decale:

In my 2* years of life, I've only seen two shattered iPhones but the number of Samsung phones wey their screen don break fit give man ebola

Fanboy battles all over here...no smartphone has the ultimate edge over others.
I preferred my Z2 over 5s for 2 major reasons.

The battery life for is MAJOR. Mine goes the distance easily with heavy use. A full day with juice left after using Emulators,web surfing, videos and calls included.
Another is water resistance, since I never lost a mobile, mobile insurance against theft (cerberus installed as safeguard) is pointless. I am covered against water loss.
Noise cancellation is extra benefit, don't use it all the time but beneficial in noisy environments.
Phones / Re: Apple Unveils The 4.7-inch Iphone 6 With Retina HD Screen by BlackBaron: 12:25pm On Sep 10
Eh...actually the iphone 5s came last in a camera shootout between other flagships. (Z2,S5,H1, Lumia 1020,G3 and Oppo 5)
Sony needs to up their software side too;came second last

The same sensor and all are reused in the iphone 6.
So until actual pictures pop up, no one should already start posturing the Z3 is inferior to the iphone 6's camera.

Atmmachine:

What is contract price ??

agrovick:
kindly expatiate
It refers to a type of package where you pay a fixed monthly amount and they in exchange give you a brand new phone plus minutes and data.

More expensive phones might require you to pay extra 'upfront' fees ranging from $49-above. That's simply the case there.
Phones / Re: Apple Unveils The 4.7-inch Iphone 6 With Retina HD Screen by BlackBaron: 6:57pm On Sep 09
ejiro2130:

$199 and $399
Contract price, that.

More likely about $600-800 for the 4.7 and the plus on payg.

So which country has the highest cost of cement ?



...in fact, I might have been wrong. We do have the most expensive cement prices on the planet.
Added to my first post.
Business / Re: Lagos City Hotel Rates Are The Most Expensive In Africa by BlackBaron: 5:03pm On Sep 04
Nigerian hotels are 'states' on their own. They provide for their own water, security, pay over the odds for fast internet,electricity.

Also the cost factor of building; Our cement prices are the second highest in the world.


In fact... I was wrong we do have the highest cement prices in the world.
Profit margin of 52% for Dangote cement against a global average of 6%. The biggest Cement maker in the world makes only 18%.

A tonne of cement in Vietnam is $67/tonne. Nigerians pay $263/tonne.
