This is a little disappointing. For some reason the video I live streamed from the HTC RE isn't visible. Some folks saw it, but I can't. I wonder if changes in YouTube Live have broken the connection?

Very cool. I've been less than impressed with the Note 4 camera. Happy to see some more thought put towards the camera this time around.

That's exactly what I'm hoping. That nobody's interested. Because if they are, things do look pretty bleak. Usually it's just script kiddies who use some well known exploit and don't actully bother to do anything futher than run exploit scanners on exploited systems.
