Now car hacking gets real, true fear not just "FUD." Yet, besides research, what's the motivation for a blackhat hacker here? Extortion? Extortion requires more "work" and a less clandestine approach. There are "easier" bigger targets as we've seen recently.

Yes, of course these zero-day exploits need to be fixed and hacking needs to be prevented but I'll worry about it more when cars have my credit card info and payment abilities. Furthermore, legislation is not the way to fix this and congress has proven many time over that they don't understand technology. So if the bill is crafted poorly, it could very well stifle innovation.

Android Studio 1.3's stage is closed to the stable release. New features are keep coming including full NDK support. And it seems like some major change is also being waited for it

I think it would be cool if npm supported different formats for the package file. Imagine package.json5 or even package.toml

Read Liz Slocum Jensen's Blue Ocean Strategy analysis of Lyft from 2013: The Blue Ocean of Mobility http://buff.ly/1FZm2Jg
The taxi industry has experienced serious disruption in the past few years. In 2013, I did a Blue Ocean Strategy analysis of Lyft.

This looks great! What would be equally as useful is the ability to set up something like this with an old phone. #AndroidAuto #AndroidDev
 
I want it and I want it NOW.

After spending time w/Express.js and Restify, I’ve decided I prefer Hapi.js. It has a clean yet flexible way to handle everything. The primary downside of Hapi.js is the size of the community. It seems to be growing but it’s small compared to Express.js

If I had time, I would write a Java MQTT client with RxJava. 

How awesome would that be?

Which API style would you prefer?

```javascript
vehicle.speed.subscribe();
//or
vehicle.subscribe(‘speed’);
//or
vehicle.subscribe(vehicle.SPEED);
```
The later two are very similar. #javascript   #observer   #observerpattern

The way I see it, attributes like speed & fuel level more like topics and not the observables. The vehicle is the observable.

The more I read about Kotlin, the more I want to use it for Android development. It has some great features and most importantly it's 100% compatible. It look like you just drop .kt files in your project and it just works.

Just wish I had the time to make the switch.

Safe. Get rid of those pesky NullPointerExceptions, you know, The Billion Dollar Mistake var output : String output = null. And of course, Kotlin protects you from mistakenly operating on nullable types, including those from Java println(output.length()). And if you check a type is right, ...

Why am I spending so much time messing w/colors & styles for Material Design on Android? Shouldn’t this just be ready to go? #AndroidDev

It's really cool.
 
Do you remember the Tiger electronic handheld games of the 90s? We thought that style might be a good match for the Apple Watch, so today we're launching our latest project: Pastime Baseball!

If you've got a watch, download and give it a swing!
