Nexus 6p – How to Fix Screen Rotation Bug Without a Reboot

The Huawei Nexus 6p is a beast.


Like any beast, she’s got a hairy side.

And it’s a screen rotation bug. At times, the screen snaps back and forth between orientations quicker than a gay Republican.

I’ll come right out and say that I can’t fix the problem. I can only treat it as it happens.

And the treatment’s quite simple.

1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to access your notifications / quick settings.

2. Click on the airplane to activate Airplane Mode.

Once the connection’s been dropped, you will be able to reassert control over your rebellious device – or shave the beast, if you will.

3. Swipe down from the top of the screen to access your notifications / quick settings.

4. Click on the airplane to deactivate Airplane Mode.

And you’re done!

Personally, I’ve had this problem in one context only – while casting to a Chromecast – and figured that the problem was therefore connection-related. With that in mind I tried airplane mode, and discovered that it could, in fact, always deal with the issue. Hope this works for you too!

Trump Tells Powerful Sheikh to “Get Dressed”

Mogul and Republican frontrunner Donald Trump displayed an astounding ignorance Friday with his comments on the unofficial leader of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed.

You know what, I gotta tell you, I have a lot of respect for the guy. The Sheikh and I have done a ton of business together, and I’ve been telling him, you know, get dressed. ‘Cause it’s all about presentation. And he’s basically wearing a bathrobe. It’s not easy to take him seriously.

In the hours since, protesters in Dubai have already burned Trump in effigy, promising that his “ignorance will be his undoing”.

MEXICO-US-HOLY-WEEK-TRUMPThis comes almost 10 years after George W. Bush’s famous U.N. gaffe, where he praised the Saudi delegation for being “hopefully the first among many” nations to feature “transgendered persons” among a diplomatic retinue.

At the time of his comment, Saudi Arabia was taking much heat for its “barbarian” practices with respect to sexuality and orientation, and the President was roundly criticized for being unaware of all of this. In the days that followed, he issued a statement apologizing:

I’ve had a few days to be caught up, and I see where I got muddled up, as they say in Texas.I was not aware that they were wearing thawbs. And you have to understand, keffiyeh’s aren’t usually red. It was pretty, and I was surprised.140px-kaffeyeh-checkered

Although at the time, the public seemed to generally forgive Bush’s accidental offence, Trump has routinely been making comments of this nature, and his views may be taken to be more representative of his actual beliefs. However, with his media presence, who knows – we might soon see similar figures in the Middle East wearing clothing with pants. We’re living in interesting times.

A thawb or thobe (Arabic: ثَوب‎ / ALA-LC: thawb), dishdasha (دِشداشَة / dishdāshah), kandura (كَندورَة / kandūrah), khamis (Somali: khamiis / khamīs) in Somalia[1] or jalabiyyah in Libya, is an ankle-length Arab garment, usually with long sleeves, similar to a robe.
