An Open Letter to Android or “Android, You Are Shit!”
Dear Android: I know you are an operating system and probably cannot (yet?) read on your own. However, recent events compelled me to write this letter to you; an idea for it literally came to me in a dream. You see, I have carried an Android phone in my poc...

It is only overpriced if you think it will only last for two years. You forget that smartphones without a carrier contract were costing just as much way back when. Google bought the market with their phones because the took a loss on them up until the Pixel. Apple is still using the self obsolescence approach on their gear. Google is not. I expect to have my Pixel a long time.

How Analysts Approach Investigations
A challenge facing information security is our inability to effectively train new analysts. The majority of security knowledge is tacit. We have plenty of practitioners who are good at catching ba…

Seems like a lot of detail. How are analysts and line managers ever supposed to make their KPI targets if its like this?

"You're proposing to build a box with a light on top of it. The light is supposed to go off when you carry the box into a room that has a Unicorn in it. How do you show that it works?” http://iang.org/papers/market_for_silver_bullets.html (this is what #RSAC 2016 reminded me of)
Abstract: What is security? As a “good” in the sense of economics, security is now recognised as being one for which our knowledge is poor. As with safety goods, events of utility tend to be destructive, yet unlike safety goods, the performance of the good is very hard to test.

Ah, another one: some of the saved articles look like binary code :-) --- a bunch of unreadable symbols piled together. I do click 'report article', but maybe I need to send a screenshot.....

Why isn't there a way to say:

A] I don't like THIS recommendation, and/or
B] do not show me recommendations LIKE THIS?

This would be useful to tune them faster and make them more relevant.... I am sure your engine learns from what we save, but why not add learning from what we don't want to see....

Frankly, many of the recoms are kinda off...way off.

Hey Anton. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

You can tell us that you don't like a recommendation by tapping the overflow menu on the recommended item and tapping Report. Here, you'll be able to tell us why you want to report it (not interesting, already seen, offensive, etc.). 

You can give us an opposite, positive signal for a recommendation by saving the item. Recommendations are largely inspired by what you save, and will improve as you save more content to Pocket. 

I hope his helps!

Loved the location, beach, services -- pretty much everything. Will probably come back at some point. We really enjoyed our stay for many reasons: awesome resort grounds and great personnel are the top 2. Generally we didn't have high expectations for the personnel but they proved to be amazing in both effectiveness and friendliness. Hotel and restaurant staff really did impress us.
