Swiftkey is dead.
Two questions, how do I fully remove my profile from their cloud, and which keyboard do you recommend?
#swiftkey #borg #microsoft #spyware #keylogger  
We’re excited to announce an important milestone on SwiftKey’s journey. As of today, we have agreed to join the Microsoft family. Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Our mission is to enhance interaction between people and technology. We think these are a perfect match, and we …

After the lies and failed promises on the tablet, what best to showcase sailfish than another project that has been full of broken promises?

Get your popcorn, everybody, I have a feeling this movie's going to be playing for awhile.

Neato.  Now, have they shipped it?  :D  (Not that I'd be using WinMo.  Trash, really.  I'd use an iOS device before I'd use one.)

Apparently, working as designed.

Mounting efivarfs read/write by default can lead to accidental deletion of the EFI variables. It was already reported on Arch Linux forums, that running 'rm -rf' over a directory structure with mou...

Still the same story, one year waiting for a solution, lots of more vague promises, no hard dates or volumes, and the risk of waiting another year to learn that the "financial situation" does not permit the refund.

"half of the refund will be done during Q1/2016, and the other half within a year, our financial situation permitting."

"The Tablet shipping and refund processes start immediately once all the practicalities are in place. Specific to refunding, we plan to establish and ramp up the refunding process and start refunding during the course of February."
Dear Jolla Tablet supporters and other Jolla followers …

+Jose Rodrigues That's part of the "tried big and failed", though.  If you think about it, they tried to accomplish it all on a shoestring and hoped they could swedge it all in and use the proceeds from each stage in turn.  If you execute to it right, nobody's the wiser.  If you don't...heh...

What you describe is from someone reaching for something bigger than they have resources for and trying to still pull it off.  Had they had money in hand for what they were trying and I don't mean the Kickstarter stuff they managed, they'd have gotten phones, tablets, and the OS completely off the ground without any of this.

I know this one.  Seen it personally from two different companies, as an employee and tried to get out both times- because the result is very often the predictable one...the one Jolla's got right now.

I guess they had a good reason for "cleaning up" temp areas on logout instead of on shutdown. Or, more likely, it was requested by the container guys, as it was for breaking chroot (debian bug 739593)...
When I discover that systemd can potentially terminate postgresql on logout. HT @Dataraccoon

Have any of them done anything mission-critical?  WHY in the Hell do they need to have THAT r/w in the first place?

There's one I'd have to do a Kylo over.

I agree 100%. You should have 2 factor auth in all online services, but at least enable it on your email and your password vault.
 
Enable 2 factor authentication on your email. Now. Passwords are not enough and haven't been for several years.

Another friend just had his email account hijacked. If your email is anything like mine it will have an insane amount of material perfect for identity theft. You DO not want your identity stolen: it is ugly, expensive, and hangs around for years. To say nothing of other nasty things the hackers can do: use your account for illegal activity, spam, and propagation of further hijacks. It's a nasty nasty business.

Thankfully, it can be very easily mitigated with 2 factor / 2 step authentication: mostly in the form of an sms code. All major email providers offer it (thanks to Google's leadership). Twitter and Slack offer it too.

Make 2FA the one new years resolution you plan to honour.

Now, please.

More bad news... A pretty decent cloud service, with lots of space, is now dead.
 
If you’ve enjoyed using both or either of the Copy or CudaDrive cloud storage services, then we have bad news for you. Barracuda has just announced that they are discontinuing the service by May 1, 2016 for business reasons. The “business focus has…

And today #humblebundle  has two bundles, and both are windows only, DRM only. A very long step away from their start selling multi-platform, DRM free games. Hopefully some money still goes to charity, and it is not to the bill and melinda foundation.
 
Have a @Ubisoft spot for games? Check out our new bundle! Featuring series like Assassin's Creed, Tom Clancy, & more http://bit.ly/HBUbisoft

Microsoft trying to have a keyboard logger on Android like they have on Windows 10?
Time to find an alternative to the best keyboard out there.

Microsoft paid the NFL a fortune to have teams use its Surface Pro 3 tablets on the sidelines, but it likely wasn't thrilled with the publicity it got on Sunday...

Heh... Surface tablets. Windows strikes again.

Having said this, unless your game is dead-on or the Broncos are telephoning it in, you don't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning a home game against the Broncos. Mile-high Stadium's the first hint there.

Just excuses on the part of the Pats and Microsoft... >:-D
