Why should an android timer need net access?

Sat, 24 Jun 2017 21:27:29 GMT

I was just looking for a simple timer - I was making cookies and wanted another timer in addition to the manual kitchen timer on the stove. Everything I looked at wanted Network access, and most of them wanted lots more permissions. Is there a real reason why a simple timer needs net access? I can maybe understand wanting to prevent the phone from going to sleep, but why, other than advertising, would a timer need to access anything other than the phone's clock? Anyone got a favorite android timer (for an old phone, android 4.1.2)?

Discovering new (or old) music

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 07:18:20 GMT

I spend a lot of time listening to music and I've discovered some great new artists or even one-song-wonders in the last couple of months. I keep sharing new music with friends so why not share links to new music here? I rarely do youtube... I prefer Apple Music; its especially fun to listen to an artist or song, fall in love and then go check them out on Google. I remember listening to two songs by Rory Graham (better known as Rag 'N Bone Man)... and I had this visual in my head about an elderly man with years of whiskey in his voice. Imagine my surprise when he turned out to be this young, tall, broad, white guy (I'm not rascist. Don't flame me. If there's a politically correct word just tell me what it is and I'll try and use it next time.) with tattoos on his face! So, here's my current favs: For Floyd lovers, check out this song called *Again* from *Archive*. Its a long track but they've got the entire gamut from Barrett, Waters to Gilmour in that one track. I'm in love! If you listen to *Rag 'N Bone Man*, first listen to *Human* (a sort of electronica track with a lovely bass groove) and then follow it up with *St. James*, a blues track. I still can't believe its the same artist. :eek: Another track I really loved was *Play Dead* by *Tom Walker*. An old song called *Electric Memphis Blues* by *Chris Rea*, *Who Says* by *John Mayer* and *Mountain Climbing* by *Joe Bonamassa*. I haven't given any links since I'm sure everyone prefers to listen to music on the service of their choice. It would be nice to keep this thread going... I for one am always grateful to people who introduce me to new music!
