Unresponsive Touch on Android


Posted by Cynic | Posted in Linux, Software | Posted on 30-09-2014


At times you may encounter an unresponsive touch on your Android device.

This is not application specific. It happens in any application.

If this happens to you, simply turn your device off, then on again.

What happens is that for some reason your touch gets registered then it holds there. Subsequent touches don’t work properly, so you can’t zoom or do much.

This problem drills down to the API level in Android and then to the actual hardware.

The cause is perhaps some dirt or moisture on your finger, or it’s raining, or something else that contacts the surface of your device’s touch screen.

Just turn it off, then on again, and you should be good to go. If not, reboot. If you’re not happy there, then you have a different issue. Keep looking, and good luck! 🙂

Frackin’ Reserve is now available for Android!

In an effort to try and help educate people about the inevitable mathematical fraud of fractional reserve banking, I’ve released an Android version. It’s 100% free. Pass it around, and let’s END THE FED!

Frackin’ Reserve lets you simulate what happens in the money cycle with fractional reserve banking. It demonstrates how banksters print money out of thin air and how that money very quickly mushrooms into massive quantities of debt.

Make sure to check the articles listed below as they fully explain the fraudulent nature of fractional reserve banking.

“Once a nation parts with the control of its credit, it matters not who makes the laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talks of the sovereignty of Parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.” — William Lyon MacKenzie King


You can find Frackin’ Reserve for Android in the Google Play store here:



As with all other versions, I’ve made the full source code is available for free. There are notes in there to help you compile it as it requires some very minor tweaks to compile (you must have a strong name file).

DOWNLOAD: Frackin Reserve Android source code

However, in a massive departure from my norm, I did put Google ads in the version that you download from the Google Play store. (I pretty much never put any kind of advertising in my free software, and am generally not very fond of ads in my own software or web sites.) It takes a lot of time and effort, and I figure that if I want to keep up with some of this activism, I need to try and make some money from it in order to off-set the costs of me spending my time elsewhere trying to make a living. I do hope that people appreciate that I’m not trying to get rich or anything – just trying to pay bills. While I thoroughly enjoy this, it takes away from development time for other things that I need to put food on the table. (If you would like to help support Frackin’ Reserve, please consider having a look at my commercial audio software to help musicians learn new songs – Guitar & Drum Trainer.)


Here are some screenshots on tablets and phones, with both older and newer versions of Android for the phone screenshots. Click to zoom on any of them.

IP Porn – Hot Tech-On-Tech Action!

The world of hot tech-on-tech pron is never ending. Our next bout of hot & saucy action comes (cums?) from Microsoft spewing on the backs of Google after fucking with Motorola…


The patent in question defines a method for a mobile device to obtain a map from one database, call up resource information such as the location of a hotel from a second database, and overlay the two sets of data.

So, let’s see… They want to join data from one query in another query from another database? That’s some pretty kinky shit! Wow. Like totally innovative and non-obvious… let’s pull out from one and stick it in another…

Maybe not as sexy as the Apple v. Samsung pronfest, but still pretty fucked up.
