Great blog on mobile security (including a break into Qualcomm's trustzone).

2GB of free Google Drive storage.
Didn't even take 3 minutes, and I removed some permissions of apps that I didn't use anymore.
 
Want a free extra 2GB of Google Drive storage, and a more secure Google account? Take a quick security check-up for your account and you'll get an extra 2GB of free-forever Drive storage. (And yes, it stacks with last year's security checkup bonus!)

it turns out antivaxx nonsense has always been an auto-generated scam: HealthMe’s business model is to make an automated program that runs through every single drug and every possible side effect, scrapes the FDA database for examples, then autopublishes an ad-filled web page titled “COULD $DRUG CAUSE $SIDE_EFFECT?”. It populates the page by spewing random FDA data all over it, concludes “$SIDE_EFFECT is found among people who take $DRUG”, and offers a link to a support group for $DRUG patients suffering from $SIDE_EFFECT. Needless to say, the support group is an automatically-generated forum with no posts in it.

This video is AMAZING.

A bunch of different Mario 64 glitches strung together to complete a star with a minimal number of presses of the A button. But, more importantly, really really good commentary and explanatory visuals.

Want to work on Dart? Our team in Aarhus is hiring.
Google's software engineers develop the next-generation technologies that change how billions of users connect, explore, and interact with information and one another. Our products need to handle information at massive scale, and extend well beyond web search. We're looking for engineers who bring fresh ideas from all areas, including information retrieval, distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking and data storage, security, a...

Nice to see Google still investing in Dart :). I wish I found this last month though :/.

It's fascinating how fundamental problems, like converting a double-precision number to its string representation, are still not fully explored.
6 years ago I proudly presented Grisu which was ~2 times faster than any existing algorithm at that time.
Today I learned that +Marc Andrysco, +Ranjit Jhala, and +Sorin Lerner found another algorithm which yields similar performance-improvements compared to Grisu. I still have to read the paper in full detail, but the numbers look amazing.

Trivia: It's (now) a tradition that double-conversion algorithms have names that are dragon related. The latest one is called "Errol" :)

Edit: turns out there was a measurement error. Grisu is still the fastest algorithm around.
