If you enjoyed reading +Nikolay Elenkov's posts about Android security, you'll love his forthcoming book on the subject. I've had the pleasure of reviewing it and it does give you a view of what happens under the covers in Android.
 
This cat has been out of the bag for a while, but thanks to some hard work by No Starch Press, you can now read a couple of chapters (PDF). 

Thanks to +Kenny Root for reviewing and catching some of my newbie mistakes. Any remaining ones are entirely my own. 

In case you are wondering, this is not about rooting and exploits, but mostly about how Android works internally, with a focus on security related features.

BTW, it called Early Access for a reason -- while the included chapters are complete, and have been both edited and reviewed, they are not 100% final.

I thought this was funny when I was in #Tokyo . They had to rope off a path to the #PS4  to control the crowds that wanted to play the demo unit. However, they completely roped off the #XBox  for this. I guess it didn't matter since no one seemed to be interested in the XBox anyway.

I just keep comparing this drive to itself and eventually it runs on almost no power at all.

"The CoolSpin technology, along with other Hitachi power management techniques, gives the Deskstar Coolspin its 29% power savings over the Deskstar Coolspin."

Yay, my patch to support ECDSA and ECDH in Apache's MINA SSHD was merged. Hopefully it will be in a release soon so all the software that uses MINA can benefit.

+GitHub you're the only place I can't use EC keys. Need any help adding it?

The feeling I got when I wrote code on and off for a couple days for ECDH support in the Apache MINA SSH library and it worked the first time I tested it.

Essentially, 23andMe is either brazen or stupid for failing to respond to the FDA for 6 months after the FDA asked for some information from them

This is the largest selection of knives I've ever seen in my life; I even found a piece I had been trying to find for a long time. Peter and the rest of the staff were incredibly knowledgeable!

Excellent gourmet New York style thin crust pizzas that will satisfy thee appetite of anyone that had lived outside of Hong Kong. The cappuccino is excellent and the view of the waterfront provides the perfect backdrop in which to sip it.

The hot roast beef sandwich was good, but the pain au chocolat was like a loaf of bread. The atmosphere is what keeps it at 3 stars. A nice place to sit inside or outside.

One of my favorite places to hang out. The staff is friendly and the pastries are always fresh and tasty. Get there early if you want one of their awesome croissants.
