Receive a notification in Spanish for your Nexus 7 (2013)? Read this immediately before updating
posted by Alan F. / Jul 13, 2016, 1:35 AM
According to Google's issue tracker, plenty of Nexus 7 (2013) users have received the Spanish language notification. Although reports indicate that some brave souls attempted the update, it seems that those that tried saw the file stop loading as the update petered out halfway through.
Since Google is now aware of the situation, we're confident that some resolution will come of this in the form of a new update. And if you do have the Spanish notification on the screen of your Nexus 7 (2013), fight the urge to tap on the 'Restart and Install' button. Nothing good can come from it, so you might as well wait for Google to push out the corrected notification in English, and announce that the update has a green light to install.

Well, you could just go out in a trolling rampage against everyone that's pissed you off in the comments section.... though I've tried it and they never did a damn thing about it so.....

I browse mostly on my desktop and they're blocked users making comments who use certain ad blockers, I don't know how extensive this is beyond Chrome and Firefox plugins. Basically you have to disable adblock and reload the page with ads to make any comments. They must be getting desperate.

It's actually pretty smart, but they haven't blocked all methods. If you have Chrome, I suggest using Disconnect. When I disabled ABP for this site I found that the adds were still being blocked by the Disconnect plugin.

Is kind of sad. I don't mind ads, but I do run ABP on sites that go overboard. And all I will say is that I had to disable it to post this. I emailed this site directly and told them as such. When I scroll down a site, and I get a full screen of nothing but ads, its ABP. Tone it back, and keep them primarily in the side column, I'm cool with it. Also, the stupid float over a word and get a pop-up, immediate ABP turn on as well. Can't stand those.

I had to create an account just to chime in. After reading this site for over 4 years, I can only say the ads have not only gotten worse over the years but in some cases completely obtrusive. Between the full screen video ads that pop up and force you to not only back out of it but reopen the article to actually read it, to the ads that open when you're just trying to fcking scroll down the list of articles, to the automatic redirects to webpages that chrome claims is malicious (just to list a few), its almost become a joke (a hilariously cruel practical joke). And they wonder why people use abp, its sites like this that would even force a non-techy user to search for ad blocking software. I've literally had to change my scrolling (thank you user who pointed out you can use the edge of the s7 edge to scroll) habits and general browsing habits (trying to use work computers and personal laptop/ desktop to read this site rather than mobile) because the I feel the ads are over the top. That combined with the Alan F style of reporting (very jason mick-esque, high five for anyone that gets the reference) which to be more specific includes more speculation than factual reporting and sensationalized click-bait titles have made me almost stop using the site altogether multiple times over. Shame on me for still supporting it but phone arena, please change your ad model at the very least. It can drive people nuts and worst case for you turn people off using the site. Not that I'm hopeful it will change, we all know PA reads their comment section and it has only gotten worse, but here's to trying. If I'm not banned after this post I'm sure I'll see you guys around the comment section. #droidlifeftw \rant
