Celebs Share Their Memories of Peter O’Toole, Dead at 81

A true Hollywood legend, Peter O’Toole, passed away on Saturday after a long illness. Best known for playing the title role in Lawrence of Arabia, O’Toole was nominated for eight Academy Awards between 1962 and 2006. When he was awarded an honorary Oscar at the age of 70, he nearly declined it, telling the Academy, "I am still in the game and might win the bugger outright." And stay in the game he did: His final performance, in Katherine of Alexandria, comes out this year.

Why We Renumber Runways When the Earth’s Magnetic Field Shifts

Why We Renumber Runways When the Earth's Magnetic Field Shifts

The FAA can make the rules about air travel (god no inflight calls, please), but it’s still beholden to the whims of earth’s shifting magnetic field. Runways are named after their compass orientations to help pilots navigate. A changing magnetic field, however, means they now have to be renumbered.

Cyanogen makes it easier to install alternate Android OS

Android users have long been frustrated with the way handset makers lag in upgrading Android. Some go so far as to replace the phone maker’s version of Android with CyanogenMod, a custom build that’s designed for flexibility and tweakability. However, getting the CyanogenMod ROM loaded onto a smartphone has never been easy.

That’s about to change. The company behind CyanogenMod (named Cyanogen, although it’s contemplating a name change) has launched a tool, available in the Google Play store, that helps automate the install process for its ROM.

Dubbed CyanogenMod Installer, the app actually consists of two components. One is the Android app, the other a PC-side app that can be downloaded from Cyanogen. The user connects the phone to the PC, and the PC-side app performs most of the heavy lifting required to install the CyanogenMod ROM on the phone.

It’s a good way to automate¬†a process that was originally quite ornery and discouraged many people — even many technically savvy ones — from bothering with CyanogenMod. The loader app doesn’t require you to root your phone or unlock your bootloader first, both of which were obstacles to getting CyanogenMod loaded in the past.¬†Another convenient feature of the installer is that it lets you make a full backup of your phone and restore to that in the event you want to revert to the stock ROM.

The most glaring limitation of the installer? Right now it works with a smaller subset of phones. Since each phone — and often every version of each phone from different carriers — requires a different build of CyanogenMod, the installer also has to be crafted to support all those individual sub-builds. Also, the installer is Windows-only; there are no Mac or Linux versions yet.

Finally, if you’re looking to CyanogenMod as a way to install KitKat ahead of everyone else, you can’t — at least, not yet. Cyanogen is working on a version of KitKat, but wants to do it right and is focusing for the time being on polishing its Android 4.3-based releases.

In time, all this tinkering might not be needed. Cyanogen is formulating plans to work directly with phone makers as a way to get its edition of Android into many more hands. The only thing easier than using an app to install CyanogenMod would be to buy a phone with it already preloaded.

CyanogenMod isn’t the only alternative Android ROM out there; the Miui project released version 3.11.8 of its ROM on Nov. 8. But Cyanogen has the mind share — and, most important, the ease of use — that projects like this often lack.
