Phones / Re: Airtel Introduce New Internet Data Plans That Gives You 11GB For 2000 And 22GB F by Xionez(m): 7:43pm On Jun 24
Forget Airtel. Na today?

The 2Gig data plan that they created on EDGE network doesn't even pass 10KB/s. That's the catch.

The so called 3Gig "Unlimited" data plan for 1k is actually 1.5Gb. That's the catch

NOTE: For it to be actually 3Gig, u have to be on Welcome To Airtel plan. Guess what, its a one way lane. Only for new users joining Airtel. You cannot join back if you had opted for another prepaid plans. They probably use this to avoid NCC who would most likely purchase a NEW SIM and test for any bad practices.

The Android 1+1 data plan is for selected few. That's the catch.

The 1Gig Weekend browsing for N100 was also for selected few. THAT'S THE CATCH.

So are you telling me that Airtel will give 11GB for 2000 JUST LIKE THAT. Oga, wise up!

Foreign Affairs / Re: Oprah Winfrey Turns Down Donald Trump’s Running-mate Offer(picture) by Xionez(m): 2:13pm On Jun 19
Damn, Trump na confam he-goat.
So he wants to ride on the black voters to get to the Oval Office and decided to choose Oprah as the carrot.

So its now he knows he needs the black-americans, feminists and other associating fractions after blowing them up with his statements and rantings.

Well, he might as well kiss is campaign goodbye.

Seriously, like who goes to his farm with a crowd and a photographer?

He should shut his 32s. Carrying weeds isn't hard work.
I remember a pic of Tafawa Balewa in his farm doing his farming, Gandhi spinning his cotton and a host of others. They were all serious. Not brandishing discolored 32s.

If you don't take things serious, how will the people take your actions and the message serious?

R.U.B.B.I.S.H.

They should better not lay a hand on Taraji o.
Her charisma, facial expressions and general acting is too perfect. Love the way she plays her part too well. She flaunts around, jokes, twerks and reasons sense into egoistic men...and beats it into others.
Its always a pleasure to watch her 'bite and sooth' Lucious.

SHE IS DA STREETS, AND DA STREETS IS IN HER.
It is unthinkable for anybody to suggest an alternative for the role of Cookie.

Watched some movies and series which Kim made appearances. With the modified face, its hard for her to really express herself. She is a bit...souless at times. Struts about like its ikebé all viewers come to see.
If i wanted that, i'd search for porn. No use deceiving myself.

Can Kim play the decisive woman who knows how to put men in their place?!
Lemme hear a resounding "Hell No" by clicking like.

Culture / Re: Wow! See This Village Where It Is An Abomination To Have Doors In Your House by Xionez(m): 10:59pm On Jun 01
For Naija, its burglarproof door, followed by an additional bulletproof door, followed by 2 hard steel bars that makes an 'X', followed by mosquito net door then finally a crucifix, one-kill charms or a quote from the Holy Book (all depending on the religion).

Each layer of barricade having its own heavy duty padlock.

All these to confer protection from whatever principalities and powers that operate in the night...including pesky mosquitoes.



Ah, don't also forget the extra layer of defense. The loaded gun/dagger/bible (also depending on the religion) under the pillow, the tight jeans beneath the fine silk nightwear or the well sharpened machete strategically placed next to the window for a prompt and effortless beheading of an unfortunate soul who decides to poke his head through the iron bars to scout the wrongly chosen abode.

Maybe its because of what our present generations wear?!!!

A skimpy outfit brings scorn and rebuke by grandmothers (no adverse effect)...but has an overwhelming effect on the heartbeat of our poor old grandpas. That's stress on a frail heart. Go figure.

Phones / Re: Opera Is About To Be Bought By A Chinese Consortium For About $1.2 Billion by Xionez(m): 6:29pm On May 29
simiolu1:


I agree with you that it MAY not fly here (that statement is subjective because it depends on perspective) due to the practical reasons you gave but let tell you of my personal preferences.

1. I do not like having apps that don't offer me a better experience than i can get on a website. That's why I will never download apps for shopping online.

2. instead of installing multiple apps, why not install a container in which they can all function optimally? it'll save me disk space!

3. Some people don't care about data savings. I know someone who is a Glo postpaid customer. he gets 5gb every month. he still subscribes etisalat for his q5 and has spectranet internet at work. to him, data is nothing. he calls me to come and download sef so that the thing will finish

the point is opera appeals to those who love data savings above the user experience but it is not yet a better browser than Mozilla, chrome and safari (it doesn't even come close)

Made a mistake. I should have phrased my reply in a subjective context.
Post edited to reflect assumptions.

Like they say, to each his own.

lofty900:
lol I'm surprised at your comment. I updated my opera to the latest version and regretted. It can no longer download anything, no option to save pages. Nothing


I'm using the latest i presume...16.0.2168.
The saved pages is there. Click the + button to the left of the address bar and choose "Save for Offline"

The down side is that it "semi-saves" it to Media storage ie on reinstalling OperaMini, one cannot recall it from Media Storage like those days of Symbian.
UCWeb and Mozilla (thanks to SimiOlu for the notice)...can call them up from anywhere.

Download works for me as far as i am using a full data bundle. Doesn't work with OperaMini bundle on Airtel except its less than 2MB insize and its in picture format.

simiolu1:


If you're a website developer, you'd hate Opera. opera doesn't have the capacity to optimise the web app experience like chrome and Mozilla. Chrome, safari and torch browsers are built on the WebKit framework which opera does not support. Also, it's this part or the world that cares about data savings. so we want to save data at the expense of better use experience. if you don't understand let me ask you. between Mozilla, chrome, uc browser and opera, which ones offer a better experience on websites like Facebook, twitter, eBay, Amazon, yahoo mail, gmail etc?


as I type this, eBay and Amazon no longer support opera mobile (you can't access them with opera mini or Opera). I believe that in there nearest future, if opera doesn't offer a better web app experience, other major companies will drop it.

BTW, Mozilla allowance you to save a page for offline view as a PDF file. I just thought I'd add that


I like this.
The internet space is all about Ads. Delivering dynamic content to the users. OperaMini only offers static ads which doesn't go down well with websites which have advertisements as one of their source of revenue, if not the only source. Eg Amazon, eBay, Instagram etc etc.

So more content, more work, more RAM, more data, more tasks for the SOC, more battery drain.

With their numerous open WiFi hotspots, near constant power supply and subsidized handhelds, its easy to constantly modify web experience.

But down here, such things doesn't often fly.
They don't pay for our data, power supply is erratic, prizes of phones not subsidized (no payment plan to even speak of). Even payment for advertised services is often difficult.

Slim and static and functional is the watchword in this case. This is why OperaMini seems to be king.
If they want a more dynamic and interactive UI with all the eye candy, they may download the app. Ask Konga and Jumia.


In essence, Chrome may not fly here due to PRACTICAL reasons, but in theory, its okay as a browser.

charlsecy:
Chrome and Firefox, MOBILE-wise, are not good broswers. However, the only good thing about them is their ability to better render complex, animated websites with convoluted menu.



Very true. Chrome is better than Mozilla in this regard.
Most sites and devs see Chrome as the most common browser on Android especially for a day to day user. Browsers have their user agents set as 'Chrome' just so they can get these sites to function well on their apps.

I've downloaded virtually all the browsers on Playstore, as at last April, just to get a balance between RAM, Battery and Data usage.

Finally settled with OperaMini for day to day browsing and UCWeb to browse rebellious sites that refuse to render well on OperaMini (Engadget, i am looking at you) and also to download large files.

Chrome my foot.
That browser is bad news on Mobile. its doesn't actually close, consumes RAM like no mans business and lemme not get started on the data it consumes...even while browsing Facebook. Data Savings mode my foot.

I've got 31 tabs on OperaMini and RAM usage doesn't pass 35MB. You can quit the browser and it shuts down fully.

With Chrome, just 6 tabs is 39MB gone. No option to close the browser so its either you relegate it to background or u force close. Restart phone and its one of the first things to boot up.
