|Music/Radio / Re: Kanye West Titles Album "Yeezus" by BlackBaron: 8:52pm On May 20|
Narcissism slowly creeping in to this dude's head.
His first 3 albums rank as one of the greatest rap albums. (My opinion)
His offerings after My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy has been here and there for me.
|Politics / Re: Wole Soyinka's Interview About Chinua Achebe by BlackBaron: 8:43pm On May 20|
WS has bitten the bullet.
I have read but only a little snippet of 'There was a country' and can only say some comments from Achebe were unfortunate.
A major sticking point was the claim of genocide of Igbos in the SW in the events leading up to the war. So far I've looked and read through dozens of articles, books and newspaper s of that period and yet to see any evidence of this. Only seen this claim in Achebe's book so far...

When you start importing more armored cars than Iraq and Afghanistan (two countries known as the hometurf of alqaeda and taliban) then you know there's something extremely wrong somewhere.
Startling we even top latin America which includes Mexico, Venezuela et al. The former regarded as one of the most violent societies matched with a 70000 death count.

texazzpete:Point is playbook is a versatile tablet irrespective of os.
Its still handy than a few android tablets.
Well made, cheap and ability to sideload android apps.
HP touchpad is just there, unless you got some technical nous to root, or run custom roms. Not a lot to enjoy...
|Phones / Re: Android, Anyone? Part II by BlackBaron: 10:45am On May 15|
A playbook is definitely still a better device than other android tablet considering its low price point.
A 64gb is only about #26 grand comes with dual core, stereo speakers, 1080p recording and an apple esque build quality.

Are there no other candidates rather than fighting over an extremely inept President and a supposedly controversial Presidential candidate.
Jonathan does not deserve 2015 and will never be re elected!

Careless talk on both sides.
Can you look up Rwanda's history and see how jostling between ethnic firebrands resulted in deaths of up to a million in just a 100 day period.
Dokubo and co can talk tautology all day, but when shite hits the ceiling the common man would pay the price whilst their own families would be in relative safety.

texazzpete: Just picked up my galaxy S4. Seems it's the 'Octa-core' variant Samsung is selling in Nigeria. Benchmarks higher than the Qualcomm versions so i'm not complainingQuad core version is US only, everywhere else is octa core.
Just tired of upgrading...only thing that might tip me over is GPL 3 (for dolphin wii) which is still in very early stages.
Apart from that, I think the improvements are just a tad bit marginal.
|Politics / Re: Militants Kill 8 In Bayelsa by BlackBaron: 9:54am On May 06|
The amnesty never solved the problem of the Niger Delta. Yet Asari can huff and puff about the possibility of a change in government who will shut down his cash tap.
Watch from 1:20, comapre the palatial living of an ex militant commander to his ex followers and see the reason why cases like this would continue.

A thief remains a thief; however your punishment should be also be commensurate.
Alamieyeseigha, Farouk et al walk away with pardons or slaps on their wrist.
A pickpocket gets slapped with concurrent minimum 10 years sentence.

ciphoenix: it's unnatural going from a note size to less than 5" screen
I'll admit I've been busy and not had time to follow up on reviews or comparisons between S4 and Note 2. After much consideration, I don't think I'll be upgrading soon.
And oh yeah, if you're wondering about why a Note 2 still is one of the best, check out some of these guys vids.
|Politics / Re: Nigeria's 'Wealth' Is Over-rated by BlackBaron: 3:33pm On Apr 28|
Always argued this point with a few mates.
Taking into context wealth generated per capita, Nigeria would not feature in the top 10 category. For her population stats, it's just average coupled with the inherently unequal wealth distribution.
Some of the richest per capital would include
Mauritius et al
|Phones / Re: Android, Anyone? Part II by BlackBaron: 8:25pm On Apr 27|
Has anyone got first hand user experience of the new S4...
And would you consider upping from Note 2 to S4?
|Politics / Re: Corruption Is Massive Under Jonathan – US by BlackBaron: 12:02pm On Apr 21|
EFCC is well and truly dead.
Numbed and neutered by an inept government.
Pray tell what happened to the subsidy fraudsters, the Farouk-gate scandal, numerous oil barges seized - not one owner convicted.
So bad, our political criminals are being prosecuted abroad for crimes they committed at home.
The ones at home are given 'Presidential Pardon'
Jonathan paid stooges can deny but...
|Politics / Re: Corruption Perception: Goodluck Jonathan Versus Bola Tinubu by BlackBaron: 12:47am On Apr 21|

Sounds like all your political class were hewn from the same corruptible branch.

Tells a lot bout the story of politics in Nigeria.
Fraudsters and criminals arrive to the country only to be appointed as 'expats'
Should be well known by now that they are appointed for others in power to pool on their criminal talent or expertise ala Ibori et al.

Wasn't it well known by now that all your leaders only represent their own selfish interests.
Our resident 'Bigots assembly' fired unending salvos at each other for Tinunbu's call, now Ohaneze leader does same.
A poll amongst yourselves would show these leaders do not represent the views of the majority they claim to lead.
Wake up and smell the coffee!

It is indeed possible to work for the NHS from a young age.
If you show flair and interest, your NHS trust would take you on with minor roles in the beginning to more advanced levels as you advance in your studies.
It's one of the easiest ways to get in to the National Health Service and quite a few use this route.
Positive story. Wish her all the best.
|Phones / Re: Android, Anyone? Part II by BlackBaron: 6:51pm On Apr 08|
I meant 32GB card + 16GB internal=48GB.
More cost effective to buy a memory card than buying the one with the memory top range.
Not too fussed bout speed. Class 10 transfer rates are fast enough.
|Phones / Re: Android, Anyone? Part II by BlackBaron: 4:39pm On Apr 08|
As at now, my phone capacity is 48GB. Slapped on a 32GB sd card after only a few hours out of the box cos I was running out of space already. At any given time, I need that extra space which I use to download latest 720P/1080P yet to be released movies after which I upload to my 50GB dropbox cloud storage. My apps also accounts for a hefty storage of the sum total of installed memories. I also got spare memory which I use if I'm out and without the luxury of deleting.
Couple in my extra files, documents et al and see why a phone like HTC One would never be my cup of tea. Those iphone peeps you mention always swoon and curse when they see the media content available on my phone which they never have the luxury of expanding.
2012-2013 comparison or not; at present most don't even know what latest better phones there are out there, mention Oppo 5 or SE Z to some and watch out for their blank faces. The S3 still outsells superior flagships even though it is no longer the best.
Truth is even if HTC One might be better, the in-your-face marketing of S4 would well and truly make sure there is no rival to clinch the heart of potential flagship smartphone consumers.
|Phones / Re: Android, Anyone? Part II by BlackBaron: 4:00pm On Apr 08|
HTC only have themselves to blame.
Aesthetics and specs looks top notch, however a device with no external storage will never appeal to people like me.
Their marketing is also just so bland. Bar the few enthusiasts like you and I, quite a chunk of consumers don't even know there are better devices that tip say the S3 off the 'King of android' throne like the Oppo Find 5, SE Z and the HTC One.
Anyway for those who want to get android apps for cheap, You can try Humble Bundle Mobile, lets you pick up varieties of apps under a pay whatever you like model.
You get a download link after successful payment and can then easily download.
