    Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

    Should You Root Your Android Phone?

    "Should I root my phone?," they ask? "I hear you can do all kinds of cool stuff!" Oh, yes, that's all true. But your question asked us if it is really worth it. With risks beyond your belief, I am here you help you understand the concept. This article comes from a user that is experienced with rooting and has knowledge of the Android system.
     
    What is the difference between rooting and jail-breaking? What is rooting?
     
    You have most likely heard many people talking about rooting and jail-breaking over these last few years. You've seen phones with super-funky lock screens. I read your mind as you ask, "How did you do that?" "I rooted my phone!" You need to understand that rooting and jail-breaking are two different things, but similar. Jailing-breaking is to Apple products, as rooting is to Android products. Our main focus is rooting.
     
    Rooting is the concept of obtaining root (aka Superuser/Administrator) to the Android OS code and origin. Certain privileges are then granted to modify software code or install software that the manufacturer wouldn't normally allow you to do. You ask, "Why do they not allow you to do this in the first place? It's my phone." It is easier for the company to offer support if they allow the user to use the unmodified software. And no, rooting is not illegal, but there are risks in doing so.
     
    What are the perks of rooting?
     
    • Customize Themes and Graphics
    • Download any app, regardless of the store they are posted on.
    • Advanced Networking
    • Extended battery life
    • CPU Overclocking
    • Many more advanced features
     
     
    What seems to be the strong risk of doing so?
     
    Have you ever heard this saying? "With great power comes great responsibility." That statement is very true in this case.
     
    • "Bricking" your device - Let's say you mess up the rooting process or your phone dies. Your phone can be effected so much as to the point that it fails to work and is a machine with no use.
    • Warrenty Void - Your device will lose its warranty because of the many things that can be done that the manufacturer does not want you to do.
    • Malware - Many people take advantage of the software that was installed inside your phone and get around it with a virus. Although if you are smart enough, a great antivirus should do the trick.
     
     
    Final Thoughts
     
    Rooting your phone holds a tough decision. Are you interested in a void of warranty, a possible phone failure, security issue that holds with the many great things you can do to boost your phone's performance? The choice is up to you. I do not recommend it from my own experience, although this is enjoyable in many ways!

    'Close' Asteroid Fly By

    Grab your binocs!
    A huge asteroid is flying by Earth on Monday. Don't worry -- NASA says we'll be safe. 2004 BL86 is this asteroids name. 2004 BL86 will come "close" to Earth - around 745,000 miles away, to be exact. 745,000 miles away is "very close" on NASA's scale. Light years are more on the excess side, being the distance light can travel in a year. Yes, the special thing about this asteroid is it is one of the.... "closer" ones we've had for quite some time.
     
    But asteroid 2004 BL86 is huge - a third of a kilometer in size. An asteroid this size could cause some serious damage, believe it or not, if such an asteroid hit the Earth. Being the closest asteroid to pass until 2027, scientists and astronomers are taking this moment to study and learn as much as they can about asteroids. They will use high-tech, powerful electronics and telescopes to take high resolution photos, learning about the rocks, the texture, and all of it's hidings in the process.
     
    Scientists say that you should be able to see the asteroid with high powered binoculars or a telescope, so the time to catch 2004 BL86 should be around 4:19 PM in the United Kingdom. Take this chance to catch a glimpse at what might be the best and closest asteroid you will ever see!

    'Pocket' Computer

    Do you have a HDMI monitor laying around? At $149 dollars, Intel now offers their new Intel Compute Stick; the pocket device that is literally a computer, but it is more compact and runs off of USB Power. The stick comes with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. If you are not a fan of Windows 8.1, Ubuntu is a cheaper option.
     
    The body of the device is basically like the Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV stick. Surprising enough, the device comes with a quad-core Atom Bay Trail processor that powers the stick, assisted by 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. You can also insert a micro SD card into the port it provides to open up the meager strorage you are provided with. Connectivity is provided through 802.11bgn Wifi and Bluetooth 4.0.
     
    Not thrilled with the low-end specs? Intel plans to upgrade its hardware as developments increase. The first model is set to ship in March. Although this definitely will not replace your main system, it would make a great home theater for your TV or simply a device for school.
    What are your thoughts on this tiny system?
