Hey Geekzone - just a quick message to say 'hi'! I'm new to Geekzone.

 

I'm a Product Manager at Lightbox, so you'll probably hear most from me in the Lightbox forum :)

 

I love tech & gadgets though, so I'm sure I'll pop up elsewhere too...

Welcome to GZ  :)

 

My Mrs has been waiting for Season 2 of Outlander to finish so she can binge-watch the whole series over a few days.  :)

Welcome aboard.





I'm a geek, a gamer, a dad and an IT Professional. I have a full rack home lab, size 15 feet, an epic beard and Asperger's. I'm a bit of a Cypherpunk, who believes information wants to be free and the Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Greetings and welcome to Geekzone. Also a Mr Robot fan here.




People often mistake me for an adult because of my age.

 

 

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Welcome.

 

QQ. Why did the latest Lightbox update require additional permissions on Android...?

Hey huckster

 

It shouldn't have...what version were you updating from > to?

 

Also note that another wee update went out today. Current version should be 1.2.2 so check for updates in the Play store.
