No, they just cause random reboots, freezes, UI inconsistencies, and a few other things.

Sure, whatever you say. I on the other hand can say that my phone has only ever restarted when I receive updates, and given that your phone is the closest thing to stock android you can get without buying a Nexus, I'm going to say that any issue you experience is due to user incompetence and not because of the OS.

I don't care what you say. You're not relevant at all. Maybe you should do your homework for once and get that simple mind of yours educated.

It's not in any way about the Oracle case. That's been decided.

And you're a brainless hypocrite despite what you want to believe.

And you're completely irrelevant.

Not true, I taught you the difference between your and you're, granted that it took half a year to teach you, but I guess that's to be expected for someone with your mentality. I am so proud of you though!!!! Pretty soon you'll be able to wear your big boy pants!!!

I think it's that time of the month again for you, scotty.

TMI dude! I have absolutely zero interest in your cycle. I mean I can tell that you're especially irritable but I just assumed that your sheep lover ran away.

Don't tell me, you're the one who's butthurt and bitter.

They are in the Oracle case. They're not totally innocent in all things. No large company is.

I know. What's your point?

I don't think he has a point, I think he's just having a lazy day kicking it at home, poking fun the the dip-s**t in this site for a cheap laugh. Poke, poke. How's it feel?

Weren't you the one who always bitched me out for bringing other companies not referenced in the article into an argument? Is that OK to do now?

78. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't care what you do? Besides I'm not the only one who is guilty here.

Guilty of being an intolerable asshat? Yeah, you're the only one guilty of that on this site.

121. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No, that's you trying too hard, scotty.

...And yet being an intolerable asshat comes so natural to you.

160. Mxyzptlk unregistered

And you being an intolerable twit comes so natural to you.

I get along with everyone else on this site perfectly fine. I think that for anyone with even half a brain, it's clear that you're the constant factor in all the idiotic rants that go on at this site. It you were to never come back the average IQ of the site would get a considerable bump up.

Alright you two, break it up. Go pick a fight in another article.

That's already happening, lol.

Excellent!

198. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't think your IQ can get any higher than the roots in the ground. Congratulations, you're on the same level as meanest.

BS. Whenever I brought up something not referenced in the article, I was told by you "what does that have to do with the article?" or accused of using "strawman argument". Ring any bells? What does someone else doing it have to do with what you do? Are you an adult who can think for himself? Then take some personal responsibility, don't blame your actions on someone else. The whole "they were doing it too" may have been acceptable when you were 5, but when you become an adult people expect more from you.
