comment Why does android init not die?
The init process in a unix-type system (which generally has pid 1) never dies. The system needs that process to be there in order to operate properly.

comment Easiest way to automatically pause music when removing device from Dock?
As a note: For the DROID4, it's necessary to turn off the 'simulate media buttons' checkbox when creating the pause task. I assume that's because the DROID4 doesn't have any buttons to simulate.

comment Is there a way to pay for apps with paypal?
NOTE: These are debit cards, so you don't get CC protections! I suggest one of two approaches: 1) Get the pre-paid Paypal debit card, and only push a little money to it when you want to buy something. The idea here is that a card number breach won't let the bad guys suck your Paypal account dry. 2) Get the regular Paypal debit card, and don't keep much money in the Paypal account or the bank account it's hooked to. This is slower to re-load, but again the idea is to not let the bad guys have any chance of sucking you dry if the card number is compromised.

comment Any way to stop ridiculous translations in Google PlayStore?
One thing you can do is to poke at the devs - if they get push back from the auto-translations, then you can perhaps get them to stop using the feature.
