[plug] Odd pins on Android devices

Whilst having lunch before heading home from the conference and we were all
wondering what the pins on our Android devices were.

They're apparently Pogo pins. I found I can get an extended battery case
for my HTC One X that utilises those pins for charging on the go.


Allegedly the Nexus products will soon utilise them for charging using
magnetically attached cables, but the cables are not available yet.

Curiosity satisfied :-)

DRM 'manages access' in the same way that jail 'manages freedom.'

# cat /dev/mem | strings | grep -i cats
Damn, my RAM is full of cats... MEOW!!
