It's hard to describe my feelings for Prince's death.

A few weeks ago, when I heard about David Bowie, I immediately felt the pain and the sorrow, but with Prince I cannot go beyond a dull numbness, because I just cannot accept his death.

I've loved the artist more than any other musician. I have his complete discography, including tons on unpublished material (all The Works, for those who know them). I can sing by heart many of his albums.

But, above all, I have countless memories from my 20s and my 30s, with some song from Prince as the soundtrack. He's so deeply involved with my life, that it's difficult for me to listen to one of his songs without going back to some period or episode of my life.

Hence, my numbness, speechlessness, engulfed sadness.

Today, for me, it's snowing.

I'm speechless... He's always been my top musician... I've grown up with him...

I've not read about it anywhere... am I in a test group, or was I simply absent-minded?

We are definitely at war... Earlier this week I witnessed the 6th ransomware attack, since the beginning of the year, at the two places where I work.

The first 5 came via traditional mail messages and nuked client PCs, but the 6th landed directly on a server, via RDP + brute force attack, and nuked 1TB of data throughout the network in less than an hour.

And yesterday I've read about a new variant spreading via Flash... Which means, considering the average user attention to the problem, that you either shut up internet or sit down and wait with a hand on your wallet...

We are at war, with ton$$$ of money at stake, and I can't think of all the casualties we will have to suffer before this is over.


Crypto-ransomware has turned every network intrusion into a potential payday.

Very good piece, which puts current AI where AI deserves to be, and gives a down to earth explanation of the (yet to come, at the time of the interview!) AlphaGo's achievements.

I'm a big fan of Prince, and during the last fortnight I've been relistening / rediscovering his opera omnia (yes, it is that big, and I've not finished yet!)

Last night it was the turn for the first part of his live doubleCD, One Nite Alone... Live! Well, I didn't remember much about it, and that's a shame, because it's absolutely G-R-E-A-T!

A lot of his classics are there, all reinvented by His Majesty and a great band. The magical touch of great players performing live, turns all of them into astounding pieces.

Another thing I really like is that there are a lot of songs taken from The Rainbow Children, which is IMHO one of the best works from Prince, with its jazzy touches across a variety of genres.

I'm listening to CD #2 as I write this, and here comes Nothing compares to u... Which makes me say: do yourself a favor, and listen to this album. You'll love it.

True for me since switching to CM13. Both Gmail and Inbox require manual sync...

Hopefully this is not a Doze related issue, because, if it is, it would be another confirmation that Android desperately needs a way to distribute core updates without depending on manufacturers, and there is absolutely nothing like that on the way...
