"With its choice, flexibility and security, we believe Android is uniquely equipped to help businesses tap the full power of mobility."

The week that particularly highlights how bad Android security is was probably a bad week to announce something with false information like this in it.
Google's mission to make Android the preferred choice for companies everywhere is picking up some fresh momentum today. Today the company announced that its Android for Work program is expanding to...

The notice said they'd draft sanctions against the company if they didn't comply within 15 days. That was a month and a half ago. So we may see where this is going soon.

+Jake Weisz , barring actual criminal conviction. there are plenty of ways to eliminate one's digital footprint if so desired.

It should not so be a 'right to be forgotten', at least in the passive sense.

However, which tend to believe or be of the opinion based on your explanation.

That the tools & tricks, involved with the elimination of one's digital footprint.

Also should be made more readily available, it's probably not ( granted the following is part of my own world view ), as a direct result of big business wanting to use loopholes to exploit the little man on a worldwide scale.

I'm even willing to bet, that if someone actively took up the mantle of informing the public of how to eliminate one's digital footprint, I'm betting Google wouldn't like it and would go after them legally if not digitally, or worse yet physically.

Another Google+ integration removed.
 
Hooray for Google Play Beta testing without the Google+ requirement.  Though I have grown to enjoy the Google+ community for communicating with beta users, it has been a hurdle for some to join betas.

This sort of thing is a serious problem. It's also noteworthy that Sandstorm Oasis had their ToS and Privacy Policy open for feedback in draft form, so we were able to ensure it worked for us as consumers.
 
So Github apparently decided to issue a 24-hour takedown ultimatum to this person for having the word "retard" in their repo.

The action was certainly within Github's rights, and it's certainly true that the language was likely to offend a lot of people (and therefore was, by definition, offensive).

The scary thing is that a fairly large chunk of people would never have expected that this language could lead to a 24-hour takedown ultimatum. Which makes me wonder: what kinds of things which I personally think are reasonable might lead Github to take similar action against me? If I go on vacation and fail to check my email for 24 hours, am I risking having my data deleted?

This is one of those problems with "the cloud" that doesn't get talked about enough. Cloud providers assure you that your data is safe with them. Backups are stored in multiple geographically diverse locations. No reason to keep your own copy! There's no way you could ever lose it! Well... Unless they arbitrarily decide they don't like something about your data, in which case it's gone. It's not censorship because they're not the government and it's their right to set the rules on their service, so stop complaining.

This is something I had in mind while writing the Terms of Service for +Sandstorm.io Oasis, our upcoming managed hosting service. We will not delete your data unless we legally have to. Under well-defined circumstances (like if you use our service as a platform for harassment), we might unshare your content, making it inaccessible to anyone except you. But we won't delete it.

https://oasis.sandstorm.io/terms

(And of course, you can always run your own Sandstorm server, in which case you make the rules.)

So, I haven't figured out how Jet.com makes money. They fulfilled my order via Wal-Mart, with a packing slip that says I ordered an item for more than I paid. Is Wal-Mart actually billing them less than the packing slip shows? Or did they actually pay them full price for my order?

+Artem Russakovskii I guess if they get a referral kickback for the order, and then subtract that from what they charge you, that would make sense.

The show Continuum continues to have a incredible level of relevance in society today. The CPS in the show was started much the same way.

This reminds me a bit of the private businessman who is buying up properties in downtown Detroit, and funding his own security service to keep it safe.

Not related but YouTube has been deleting videos without a heads up. A girl that does makeup had 40 of her videos deleted and of course CS won't reply to her emails.

I'm this close to switching our show to Vimeo.

Introduction
Fair warning, if I choose to circle you, I will probably regularly comment on you too. It's what I do.

I am an IT geek, a gamer, and a scifi nerd. I have --Asperger's Syndrome-- autism (seriously, no strikethrough here?), my cute little mental disorder that is responsible for my peculiar obsession with minor details and ability to remember excessively complex numerical systems.


I'm an avid Android user, possessing multiple Androids, in addition to the variety of Windows computers I run on a daily basis. I have an odd obsession with 2.5" SATA hard drives, don't ask why.

A list of my computers can be found at http://www.ocdtrekkie.com/machines.php

And if this is Navi, I still love you.

A great addition to any Paris vacation. We had a lot of fun exploring their video games exhibition and their submarine! A particular bonus was number of displays that were available in English as well as French.

Reasonably priced buffet. Food is decent/good, selection is small though. Drinks are free. Dining area is reminiscent of a cafeteria.

A decent-priced hotel in an extremely convenient location in downtown San Francisco. I was impressed by the service and style of this hotel located in this over one-hundred year-old building. RFID-based room keys and such were a nice novelty. On the downside, my heater did not work, and was not repaired during my four-night stay. They did provide me extra blankets. And the walls are very thin. One morning I awoke to the couple in the adjoining room (which is only a single door for separation) having some fun in bed.

Let me preface by saying that I don't like Mexican food. But that being said... Despite that it was too spicy for my tastes, the salmon I had was incredible. Service was great, and honestly, the prices were quite fair as well.

I was looking for somewhere relatively cheap in an area where food is a lot more expensive than home. For less than the cost of fast food, Jasmin's Cafe provided a great meal, that was freshly-prepared. A worthwhile place to grab a meal while near Union Square.

Easily the nicest hotel I've stayed in. Hotel Avante has a great atmosphere, and great service. The cleaning staff always leaves a friendly note with a couple pieces of candy behind. The hotel is geared towards "creative people", with Idea notepads around the room, as well as various puzzles. Wi-Fi is as good as at home or better. A truly enjoyable stay.
