Hi,
I tried to look for your XDA thread for the Nexus 5 but couldn't find one.
Is 0.9.3 still the latest Hammerhead build, or is their a newer one I am missing.
Thanks.

Thanks.

+Henry Young​ you would have to decompile the APK, modify the resources and recompile it. It's not as simple as you might think.

In the rehearsal Indigo got so into it he accidentally stabbed the 6 fingered guy in the hip. The guy then said to the director before the scene was shot "I think he is going to kill me"

The packet capture shown in these new NSA slides shows internal database replication traffic for the anti-hacking system I worked on for over two years. Specifically, it shows a database recording a user login as part of this system:

http://googleblog.blogspot.ch/2013/02/an-update-on-our-war-against-account.html

Recently +Brandon Downey, a colleague of mine on the Google security team, said (after the usual disclaimers about being personal opinions and not speaking for the firm which I repeat here) - "fuck these guys":

https://plus.google.com/108799184931623330498/posts/SfYy8xbDWGG

I now join him in issuing a giant Fuck You to the people who made these slides. I am not American, I am a Brit, but it's no different - GCHQ turns out to be even worse than the NSA.

We designed this system to keep criminals out. There's no ambiguity here. The warrant system with skeptical judges, paths for appeal, and rules of evidence was built from centuries of hard won experience. When it works, it represents as good a balance as we've got between the need to restrain the state and the need to keep crime in check. Bypassing that system is illegal for a good reason.

Unfortunately we live in a world where all too often, laws are for the little people. Nobody at GCHQ or the NSA will ever stand before a judge and answer for this industrial-scale subversion of the judicial process. In the absence of working law enforcement,  we therefore do what internet engineers have always done - build more secure software. The traffic shown in the slides below is now all encrypted and the work the NSA/GCHQ staff did on understanding it, ruined.

Thank you Edward Snowden. For me personally, this is the most interesting revelation all summer.
New documents reveal exactly how the Post was able to determine that the NSA was peeking inside the Google and Yahoo's cloud network.

Tokyo, Japan at Night | International Space Station
An image that reminds us of the opening scene of the manga film classic Akira, this futuristic night-time shot of the capital of Japan was taken in 2012 from the International Space Station.

Tokyo’s sprawling metropolis is illuminated by streetlights emitting the characteristic blue hue of Asian cities. The brightest white lights in the city centre show a large black spot where the Imperial palace and garden take up a large part of Chiyoda ward.

The bright lights are made more remarkable by the blackness of Tokyo bay where lights from boats reveal the only sign of human presence. More than 13 million inhabitants live in the Tokyo prefecture spreading out over 2000 km2, but they have not started living in Tokyo bay, yet.

ESA’s Nightpod camera aid helps astronauts track objects on Earth from the International Space Station. Following Earth’s motion automatically, the tripod creates clear images in low lights with off-the-shelf professional cameras – 400 km above our planet in space.

What do the numbers mean with Volume boosting? There is no units or frame of reference given.

The default Headphone volume for the nexus 5 in the system/etc/mixer_paths.xml file is 15.

How would setting the Headphone Volume Boosting to 5 or 20 in the Franco Kernel App modify this?

Thanks.

Its also interesting how when changing the max volume in /system/etc/mixer_paths.xml doesn't seam to cause any distortion with small increments changing it in FK App does.

This is the big story in tech today: 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/nsa-infiltrates-links-to-yahoo-google-data-centers-worldwide-snowden-documents-say/2013/10/30/e51d661e-4166-11e3-8b74-d89d714ca4dd_story.html

I'm just going to post my thoughts on this. Standard disclaimer: They are my own thoughts, and not those of my employer.

*
Fuck these guys. 

I've spent the last ten years of my life trying to keep Google's users safe and secure from the many diverse threats Google faces.

I've seen armies of machines DOS-ing Google. I've seen worms DOS'ing Google to find vulnerabilities in other people's software. I've seen criminal gangs figure out malware. I've seen spyware masquerading as toolbars so thick it breaks computers because it interferes with the other spyware.

I've even seen oppressive governments use state sponsored hacking to target dissidents.

But even though we suspected this was happening, it still makes me terribly sad. It makes me sad because I believe in America. 

Not in that flag-waving bullshit we've-got-our-big-trucks-and-bigger-tanks sort of way, but in the way that you can looked a good friend who has a lot of flaws, but every time you meet him, you think, "That guy still has some good ideas going on".

But after spending all that time helping in my tiny way to protect Google -- one of the greatest things to arise from the internet -- seeing this, well, it's just a little like coming home from War with Sauron, destroying the One Ring, only to discover the NSA is on the front porch of the Shire chopping down the Party Tree and outsourcing all the hobbit farmers with half-orcs and whips. 

The US has to be better than this; but I guess in the interim, that security job is looking a lot more like a Sisyphus thing than ever.

Also of note, this article from September may call some recent technical decisions into relief:

Does affection ever go down? Or once you have got 250 (5 stars) does it stay that way?

Was victory road in 3D before the 1.1 update?

Also does the framerate in 3D battles feel smoother?

Yep. Also, no, the 3D is still laggy.

As my friend said, Nintendo really shot themselves in the foot on that.
