Planned Obsolescence

My Knidle 3 3G e-book reader (leading product of Amazon, one of the most expensive model) has stopped working this week for no apparent reason. It is not even two years old device. It was not damaged mechanically, electrically, nor any other way. It simply does not want to power on. I am not alone with this problem. As it is over one-year warranty period the only thing Amazon can offer to me is to purchase a new product. Perfect example of Planned Obsolescence. Amazon – no, thank you, you have lost my trust :-(

Screenshots in Android 4

If you wonder where did the power menu option to make a screenshot go in Android 4 – you need to long press Power + Volume Down buttons together :-)

Still I don’t know how to disable screen inside ongoing call when my Power button is assigned to end call, or how to end call when screen is locked and Power button is assigned to lock screen ;-) Design Fail or hidden solution somewhere there deep inside..? Apple simply use one button to end/diall call and separate mechanical switch to lock the device – simple functional and elegant.. but hey why Android does not use this solution as well, is “button switch pair” already patented by Apple? ;-)
