GNU, GPL, Open Source Late last year, president Obama signed a law that makes it possible to indefinitely detain terrorist suspects without any form of trial or due process. Peaceful protesters in Occupy movements all over the world have been labelled as terrorists by the authorities. Initiatives like SOPA promote diligent monitoring of communication channels. Thirty years ago, when Richard Stallman launched the GNU project, and during the three decades that followed, his sometimes extreme views and peculiar antics were ridiculed and disregarded as paranoia - but here we are, 2012, and his once paranoid what-ifs have become reality.

No, she has owned every iphone released and currently own a 4S.

How is the IOS text messaging app 3rd party?

The update process for cyanogenmod is download the update and open the file. The update runs and reboots the phone for me. Two steps isn't that hard.

There has been nothing major broken on my phone running cyanogenmod since i bought it. Compared to an iphone that is a month old and already has weird UI and software issues i think that's doing pretty well.

Again, the issue is that if it's not free and open then it doesn't matter how shiny it is, it should be avoided.
