NASA recently published the second annual Software Catalog, a free resource that contains tools used by some of the top scientists in the world. The programs that guide spacecraft into the outer reaches of the solar system and help the Curiosity rover traverse the surface of Mars can be yours at no cost. The tools are divided into 15 categories, including aeronautics. propulsion, and system testing and handling. The release of the software programs is the result of a 2011 White House memo that promoted the positive impact of sharing government agency research with the private sector.

We now have evidence Google doesn't care about security or privacy with Android.
"They were able to recover Google authentication tokens in all devices with flawed factory reset, and were able to access master tokens in 80 percent of cases."
Five Critical Failures:
1) no Android support for proper deletion of data partition in devices running 2.3.x;
2) incomplete upgrades pushed by vendors to flawed devices;
3) no driver support for proper deletion shipped by vendors in newer devices;
4) no Android support for proper deletion of the internal and external SD card in all OS versions; and
5) fragile full-disk encryption up to Android v4.4 (KitKat).
But, yeah I'm not buying that there are 5billion people on Wa'ssup each sending 10 messages every minute. . . Or even 1 message to 10 people every minute of the day. F'ing BI, you can't trust a thing on it.

There is an old Taoist story about a student who comes to a master and asks him to teach him. The master invites the student to sit with him and have tea. While they are sitting the master starts to converse with the eager young student. But every time the master starts to explain a point the student would interrupt him and say, "Oh I know that, I do this when that happens, or I don't have that problem because..." Soon the master stopped talking and picked up the teapot. He began pouring tea into the students cup, as the cup filled he continued pouring until the cup overflowed and spilled out. The student shouted "Stop! It is enough my cup is full!" With that the old master smiled and replied, "Yes your cup is full, therefore I can teach you nothing until you empty your cup."
