Obama said he was concerned about Beijing's plans for a far-reaching counterterrorism law that would require technology firms to hand over encryption keys, the passcodes that help protect data, and install security "backdoors" in their systems to give Chinese authorities surveillance access.
By Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday sharply criticized China's plans for new rules on U.S. tech companies, urging Beijing to change the policy if it wants to do business with the United States and saying he had raised it with President Xi Jinping. In an interview with Reuters, Obama said he was concerned about Beijing's plans for a far-reaching counterterrorism law that would require technology firms to hand over...

Couldn't share this the normal way because the original poster has me blocked, but I agree so much with it that I'm sharing anyway:

"When +CyanogenMod​ first announced they were forming an actual company, so many people cried out that CM as an open source project was dead. When CM started taking in funding from investors, especially when one was rumored to be Microsoft, many claimed CM was a sell out.


CM has shipped on multiple devices, received millions in funding, and yet they still contribute back heavily to the open source community. Never once leaving behind their roots as so many had feared would happen.

You were all so paranoid CM would be a sellout. How fitting it is that Paranoid Android actually is."

I don't even ... I hope this is weird satire or something. But it seems it isn't: "I stand by my decision to abort my baby because it was a male." https://web.archive.org/web/20150117101103/http://injusticestories.com/i-aborted-my-baby-because-it-was-a-boy/
Over the past 3 years, I have lost many friends, and several of my own family members have completely cut off communication with me. I now know that these are...

Update on my +OnePlus​ replacement.

I have to say I'm impressed. Within 36 hours they've opened the RMA request, approved it and arranged for it to be collected at a time of my choosing. It's also being returned to a UK warehouse this time rather than Hong Kong, which should be quicker too.

This part of the process took around 6 weeks last time. Well done, +OnePlus​, huge improvement

Vegas has the game as a pick'em. They have swapped back and forth on favorites twice so far. And the favorite has been by only a point. My advice would be to buy a burger and not bet on the game.

My journey towards being a functioning alcoholic continues. Just walked to the offies in the freezing cold at 12.30am because I'd ran out of Jack Daniels

When you start making this, especially with "Turbo yeast", then you have a problem http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilju And the smallest one isn't the taste. You're probably better of drinking aftershave.

Super excited that I get to talk about this now! This is how Open Source should work - sharing and contributing ideas and software back and forth, working towards bettering the ecosystem as a whole. 

Best part is that those devices sold to consumers using the QRD base and software instantly gain the benefit of all the community involvement in CM and Cyanogen alike. 

CAF is a well known figure in the Android ROM circles, and now we have a way to not only influence design of a large platform, but to also serve as an amplifier to how far a community driven feature can go. 

This goes beyond forums, pages and communities - this has the potential to shape hundreds of millions of user's experiences with Android.

From this article:

In conclusion, E-cig exposure results in immunomodulatory effects that are similar to those observed after exposure to cigarette smoke. Since bacterial and viral exacerbations are major drivers of COPD disease progression, this study raises a concern that COPD patients who switch from cigarettes to E-cigs may not observe substantial improvement in their disease progression. Furthermore, popularity of E-cigs among teenagers is rapidly rising, which may lead to an emerging threat to public health with regards to recurrent bacterial or viral infections. Despite the common perception that E-cigs are safe, this study clearly demonstrates that E-cig use, even for relatively brief periods, may have significant consequences to respiratory health in an animal model; and hence, E-cigs need to be tested more rigorously, especially in susceptible populations.

From the Verge: David Peyton, a chemist at Portland State University who was not involved with the study, tells The Verge. "Critically, I would like to see this group follow up with no-nicotine e-cigarette fluid, I would like to see no flavoring at all, I would like to see ... the glycerine alone, and see what effects those have." Though Peyton sees no problems with the study's protocols, its limited scope means that it's a starting point for a lot more research. "As a scientist there are a whole host of question that this study opens up."

And I agree. There are many different variables at play here, but the most important takeaway is that there appears to be some immunosuppressive effect from this ecig vapor. People are going to argue that it's so much better than cigarettes for you, and that's completely true. It's a great smoking cessation device, if you plan on actually quitting eventually. Many people switch to ecigs only to go on to be addicted to using ecigs. While that's ultimately much better for them than cigarettes, it's not better than using nothing at all.

Another problem is that there is a substantial rise in people simply starting with ecigs because they enjoy the flavoring or "cool factor." For ecigarette companies, this is great. For the consumer, not so much. 

This is an actual, peer reviewed mouse model which is more definitive than in vitro models that have been done in the past.
