|Politics / Re: Iran Offers Nigeria Nuclear Technology by BlackBaron: 8:36am On Oct 23|
flyingdutchman:You need more than education, read up more...
How can Iran (majority Shia country) support BH (Sunni Takfiri jihadists)?
That said, the West would most likely block this. Their Iranian nuclear programme has being at best 'controversial'.
|Politics / Re: Read The Viral Email Allegedly Sent By Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau To ICC by BlackBaron: 7:58am On Oct 21|
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.
|Politics / Re: Jonathan Wins Poll!!! by BlackBaron: 10:54am On Oct 20|
This shït should be on CNN. You just can't manufacture this level of fraud.
What a country!
|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

And what is 'Jimmy Choose '?

|Phones / Re: Google Unveils Nexus 6 , Nexus 9 , Nexus Player And Android Lollipop Os by BlackBaron: 8:06am On Oct 16|
Only thing was after, was a Tegra K1 TV box.
Not this Nexus Tv-intel stuff they released.
|Religion / Re: The Bankruptcy Of The Prosperity Gospel: An Exercise In Biblical And Theological by BlackBaron: 9:52am On Oct 09|
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.
|TV/Movies / Nigerian Kung Fu. Yay or Nay? by BlackBaron: 5:37pm On Oct 08|
Any idea what movie this is...?
|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.
|Politics / Re: Chimda Hedima- The Pilot Beheaded By Boko Haram by BlackBaron: 7:21pm On Oct 05|
tomiobj:Did you consult 'Chinese google'?
And please do learn to read thoroughly too...
|Politics / Re: Chimda Hedima- The Pilot Beheaded By Boko Haram by BlackBaron: 8:23am On Oct 05|
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.
|Politics / Re: Boko Haram Beheads Pilot Of Shot-down Jet (see Photo) by BlackBaron: 6:36pm On Oct 03|
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.
|Politics / Re: $9.3m Arms Deal: PDP Reps In $20,000 Bribery Scandal - Madaki's Confession by BlackBaron: 2:38pm On Sep 25|
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 futureYou think there'd be a future if fraud cases like the SA debacle would cease to be investigated?
You truly deserve those ruling over you.
|Family / Re: A Thread For "Everything Polygamy"! by BlackBaron: 7:41pm On Sep 23|
tpia: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|
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.
|Politics / Re: An Igbo Man Running For Governor In Lagos State by BlackBaron: 10:53am On Sep 21|
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.
|Celebrities / Re: Nick Cannon Rocked World Most Expensive Shoe Worth $2.2 Million (see Pictures) by BlackBaron: 9:26am On Sep 18|
The shoe is damn ugly.
Looks like a Chrome footwear.
|Politics / Re: Disturbing: B H Used Konduga Battle To Test Army Defences Around Maidugiri by BlackBaron: 6:55pm On Sep 16|
Don't forget BH has also got similar weapon systems. Yet they're able to hold ground. It's more than meets the eyes.
|Celebrities / Re: “where Did Olusola Come From?” – Lagosians Mock Desmond Elliot’s Campaign Poster by BlackBaron: 3:16pm On Sep 14|
So much vitriol!
And the tribalism against your own kind?!
Hope it is not some kind of 'entertainment recession' right now that every entertainer is now declaring for elective position?
|Phones / Re: Apple Unveils The 4.7-inch Iphone 6 With Retina HD Screen by BlackBaron: 4:36pm On Sep 10|
Decale: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.
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.
|Phones / Re: Apple Unveils The 4.7-inch Iphone 6 With Retina HD Screen by BlackBaron: 11:00am On Sep 10|
If only the Tegra K1 was available on smartphones rather than tablets alone...
|Phones / Re: Apple Unveils The 4.7-inch Iphone 6 With Retina HD Screen by BlackBaron: 8:54am On Sep 10|
agrovick: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:Contract price, that.
More likely about $600-800 for the 4.7 and the plus on payg.
|Politics / Re: Video: NA And Residents Moving Out Of Mubi by BlackBaron: 6:54pm On Sep 09|
Less likely to see civilian and soldiers driving off at speed in the same direction to a battlefront?
|Business / Re: Lagos City Hotel Rates Are The Most Expensive In Africa by BlackBaron: 9:35pm On Sep 04|
...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.
|Politics / Re: Boko Haram: FG Acquires 12 Fighter Jets by BlackBaron: 8:39am On Sep 01|
ATTACK HELICOPTERS, not jets.
And probably meant higher calibre weapons not shilkas.
