Well-reasoned piece on the technical and legal challenges associated with mandating cryptographic back doors.

PSA Fascinating article on how easily your password less than 12 characters can be obtained by brute force hashing algorithms. (And don't forget to set up 2-step authentication wherever you can. And lock your phone already.)
 
Good advice from Jeff Atwood. Best part "Stop requiring passwords altogether, and let people log in with Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or any other valid form of Internet driver's license that you're comfortable supporting. The best password is one you don't have to store."

The rest of the article is what to do if you can't do that.
23 Apr 2015. Your Password is Too Damn Short. I'm a little tired of writing about passwords. But like taxes, email, and pinkeye, they're not going away any time soon. Here's what I know to be true, and backed up by plenty of empirical data: No matter what you tell them, users will always choose ...

My #GXT  talk from #Jfokus2015  is now available. The GWT super dev mode demo as well as Resty-GWT demo may be of interest to the broader #GWT  community.

That moment when you realize that you just downloaded Ubuntu (1GB) , VirtualBox, and Chrome ARC-Welder while tethered to your phone... a text msg arrives... "You have used all of the high-speed data in your T-Mobile monthly data plan..." Well that explains why the "hotel Internet" was running so fast tonight :-)

Good times at #SenchaCon2015

GXT 3.1.4 is now available to support customers. The "pi" release fixes minor regressions from 3.1.3 regarding setting HTML in MessageBox, AlertMessageBox, LabelToolItem and ToolTipConfig. Beginning in 3.1.3, we use setInnerText as default, so in these types, you must use the SafeHtml method parameters in order to render HTML rather than show it raw.

GXT 3.1.3 is now available in the support portal and our Maven repository (see http://docs.sencha.com/gxt/3.1/getting_started/maven/Maven.html and use the gxt-support-commercial-release repo). There are several important security enhancements including new SafeHtml constructors and XSS-related fixes (see EXTGWT-3953). Like 3.1.2, GXT 3.1.3 works with GWT 2.7 Super Dev Mode.

Android web app developers: how about an open source WebView you can bundle with your app? Crosswalk is an open source Chromium-based WebView created by the Intel Open Source Technology Center. I watched the Crosswalk OpenCL graphics demos running at 60fps on a Nexus 7 today at #SenchaCon2015 , very impressive. Google unbundled WebView from Lollipop forward but Crosswalk runs all the way back to 4.0 (ICS), thus letting you use newer Web features in older versions of Android. Works with Cordova (or not) and offers its own device APIs, as well. Pretty interesting stuff.
Replace Android’s default WebView with Crosswalk, a predictable web runtime for developing powerful Android and Cordova apps.

Yes i do think its worth it. I may use it when my app grows. Will help a lot with saving test time and consistency. Currently i have 12% users with android under 4.0 but im sure in a few months those will do down. 4.0 users also get more features like css animations and optimizations.

Farewell, Google Code. It's been a great service that's contributed immeasurably to the open source community over the years. And thanks for the Github exporter :-)

Migration notes for project owners:
1. The wiki syntax doesn't get converted to Markdown used by Github, but my friends at ArcBees have created a nice tool for this: https://github.com/ArcBees/arcbees-tools/tree/master/googlecode_wiki_to_github_markdown
2. Beware the Project Moved flag! Once you set it, there's no way back. See also the comment by Dominykas on the linked blog post.

How did I miss this in my G+ feed? While it may not be the beginning of the end for G+, it is surely the end of the beginning.
Google is splitting Google+ apart, breaking the social network's photo element away from what it's now calling "Streams." Bradley Horowitz, a longtime Google VP of product, announced that he had...

Story

Mobile + cloud developer and trainer (Android, GWT, App Engine)
Introduction
I've been developing Web apps since 1994 and most recently worked for Google as a Developer Advocate for Android, GWT, and DART. Last year I moved to Peru with the wife of my youth and our three youngest kids to learn Spanish and focus on technology projects primarily for non-profits and mission organizations. I'm available for contract work on Android, GWT, and App Engine projects as well as public and private training courses.

Buying a new car normally rates slightly above going to the dentist on my scale of annoyances, but my recent experience here was certainly an exception. It no doubt helps that I started online by getting bids from area dealers with USAA Car Buying Service on a new Elantra. The Shortline bid was not the lowest; however, I decided to test drive a Mazda also and went to Shortline Mazda so I could compare both at the same time. I ended up really liking our salesperson, Ryan, who was pleasant, treated me like a human being (as well as the sales manager, a rarity in the business). He was very low key. The only pressure tactic at all was the kind I like: he simply offered by email after my visit to beat anyone else's price by $200. That was a deal I couldn't refuse. I sent him a competitor's bid and he stood by his word. The pickup was very smooth. We ended up waiting a bit on the checkout but everything was exactly as expected and they went the extra mile so we didn't have to run home to get something I had forgotten. This was by far the best experience I've ever had purchasing a vehicle. Thanks, guys!

We've used Personalized Pest Solutions for the past 9 years and have been extremely happy. Eric installed our termite system and does the quarterly maintenance as well as inside pest control. He is trustworthy, friendly, and easy to work with. He has made many great recommendations about how to minimize ants, gnats, etc. and has always been responsive (including retreatment for free of problem spots after a regular visit).
