"nobady use this kind of apps"
I think you might be having some difficulty with the concept of "most popular"... It means that these are indeed the kind of apps that people use. Actually, it means that - at least last week - more people used these apps than any others.
And before you bitch at somebody to "do better thing or stfu" you should work on your grammar and spelling. If you wanted to only appear ignorant of what this article is about instead of looking completely stupid, you should have posted something more like: "Wallpaper?!? Wallpaper?!? Nobody uses these kinds of apps! Write a better article or STFU!"
Did you miss the part about where he studied biomechanical engineering? Or are you just a typical internet commenter that doesn't bother to read anything before replying to it? You think since he PLAYED an idiot like Kelso he IS an idiot...
"Oh, and try not to download Flappy Bird clones on the Play Store"
See, that bothers me. Flappy Bird is a clone of a helicopter game first released years ago (and even that one might have been a clone already!). It was huge so it's not likely he didn't know about it... ( http://www.helicoptergame.net/ ) The only thing this developer did was alter the graphics, put it on the Play Store, and get very well paid for somebody else's original idea. The attention and the $50,000 a day was too much for poor Dong Nguyen to take? Aww, poor baby. Maybe he'll be able to sleep better if he sends a bit of his new found fortune to the original developer who actually came up with the idea.
You're complaining about something being too much of a hassle when alternative products make it even harder or not possible at all? Not to mention getting root on my HTC One was just absurdly easy. If the process I had to go through is too much hassle for you I don't know what to say...
Let's see... Download Rumrunner to my pc, plug phone into pc, turn usb debugging on on phone, disable pc's antivirus and firewall, and double-click Rumrunner file. Damn that Google for making things so complicated!

This makes me glad I went with the HTC One, but I do have a Galaxy Tab 3 10.1. I'm gonna be pissed if the smart wake function of my Moko case stops working just because Samsung is being obnoxious...
So very very wrong...
This is like having an expensive car and not being able to replace the factory Continental tires with Pirelli or Michelin. Not only are some of the cases that no longer work properly more expensive than Samsung's, but they're higher quality.
More importantly, breaking the functionality simply because it's not branded properly is pure Apple-style BS.
I suspect it would be really easy for Twitter to catch on to what they're doing and invalidate those extra tokens...
"Just like a bank owns a car when you finance..."
Yup, just like that. My car is financed, and yet I've replaced the suspension, radio, brakes, etc with my personal choice of upgrades, just like carriers should let us change ROMs on our phones. Carriers have the right to deny warranty claims and decline tech support on modified devices, as well as penalize us for early contract termination if we decide to take an unlocked device to another carrier before the contract is up. Locking the device down is unnecessary at best.
It's definitely a great phone. Thing is, the winners on this list are also great phones *and* they brought something special to the party. The HTC One with the front facing speakers and construction, the Note 3 with the size and S Pen, Moto X with the customizability and active display, etc...

Is... Is this real life? O.o
While it certainly wasn't the only reason, the size alone would be enough to make me not want the Note 3. That of course was also the primary factor in a coworker just having bought one. For better or worse, that size is pretty polarizing I think.
I doubt Google would consider these changes to be to correct "imperfections". I don't know if the power and volume buttons have been known to wear out and this fixes it, but these just seem to be minor tweaks that many products get over their lifetime as they start getting feedback from customers... "Great phone, but the speakers could be a bit louder" "No problems, but I'm accidentally changing the volume when I hold the phone"
I haven't used a screen protector since my first Android phone, a myTouch 3G Slide. It's replacement, an HTC Sensation 4G, and my Current HTC One have no protector. None of them have ever worn cases either. I got in the habit of keeping keys, wallet, chapstick, etc in my right pocket, and my phone and nothing but my phone in my left. It's been years since doing that has even needed to be a conscious decision so it's not the tiniest inconvenience. It's actually *more* convenient because I don't need to rummage past any other items in the pocket when going for a ringing phone.
The myTouch that I had the screen protector on still is in use to stream Slacker in my garage, and it's screen is in perfect shape. Of course the protector I used (Zagg Invisible shield) is long gone, having been removed a little before a year's use because putting the phone into and pulling it out of my pocket eventually lifted a corner of the shield that then started collecting dust. I also just didn't like the feel of the protector. The smooth glide of a bare clean screen just can't be matched by any screen protector I've ever come across.
My Sensation after nearly two and a half years of daily use, and a handful of drops onto concrete, asphalt, etc has a couple of very minor scratches, and the body has a couple of very tiny dings that you can find if you're really looking.
The durability of the Sensation's aluminum body and glass were a big factor in my decision to replace it with the HTC One, and also why I'm not bothering with protection of any kind on it. If you tend to be more clumsy or keep your phone in a jumble of other items in the same pocket/purse/whatever I see the value in it. For me, it would just be spending a few dollars to make it feel worse and protect it from theoretical damage I've never done to a device yet.
I've read that it's tied in with the specific processor in use on the compatible Motorola phones, so an apk won't do you any good; it won't work.
I've been wanting the HTC One since it debuted, and finally got it about a week ago. I haven't been disappointed in the slightest!
My wife is seriously in love with physical keyboards and as such has been stuck with first her myTouch Slide 3G and then myTouch Slide 4G. I've been trying to get her more used to the virtual keyboards to open up the possibility of phones with larger screens which will be much better for her eyesight. The problem is the smaller screens on phones with physical keyboards make it hard to get used to them, which makes it tougher to make the leap to a phone without the physical one... >.<
Better than nothing...Now we just need to be able to buy the other color/material backs separately.
I just really hope this doesn't mean I need to use Hangouts to access my Google Voice features, but that Hangouts can *also* use them. I used to use Google Talk, but hated how Hangouts worked - especially how I couldn't edit my contacts list down to the few people I used Talk with - and switched to WhatsApp. I'm perfectly happy with how my Google Voice works and I really don't want to have to use a product I have no use for to access a different existing one...
They've already done something similar by relocating Latitude out of Maps and into Google+. I get it, they want people to use Google+ and Hangouts is another extension of that. But they're simply going to get me and I'm sure many others to abandon their products entirely if they keep trying to cram their popular products into their unpopular one...
A quick search showed that at least California, Texas, West Virginia, Georgia, and Colorado require them. That was from 2002 so odds are pretty good more states also do by now.
"worked in certain specific professions (such as the military, law enforcement, government or finance) that most people don’t work in,"
7% of Americans work for the government. Sure, not a high percentage, but that's still a pretty damn big chunk of the population.
