From +Ars Technica ... man, makes me doubleplusgood glad I'm pre-ordering the #Mer  based #SailfishOS  powered +Jolla tablet instead of getting yet another Android device. Need to diversify my computing hardware, and US and China are on the suspect list.
Proposal is part of a tense stand-off between US government and tech industry.

+Meng Shen Lim I have a friend visiting from Malaysia end of next month, let me know if you want me to ask him to bring one back

AOSP... should be, yes, question is if the organizations doing rebuilds have the manpower to do much security work. Safer to have a completely independent OS, which is what we get with Mer/Sailfish. Closer to a normal Linux stack too, so security audits should be easier to do too?

Given what happened since then, this incident certainly feels even fishier than it already did at the time
 
On this day, five years ago, a plane carrying 96 people, including the Polish President Lech Kaczynski and his wife, former President Ryszard Kaczorowski, the entire general army command, the Chief of the Polish General Staff and other senior Polish military officers, the president of the National Bank of Poland, and many others, crashed in Smolensk, Russia.

The official investigation, which was mainly conducted by Russia and was rubber stamped by the Polish government, concluded that the crash was an accident which was caused by a Pilot error.

An independent investigation which was carried out by a Polish Parliamentary Commission relying on international experts from USA, Poland, Russia and other countries, concluded that the plane crashed because it exploded while still in the air.

Many prominent people in Poland who criticised the "official" report, and accused openly the Polish premier, Donald Tusk, of high treason, the most prominent being Brigadier General Sławomir Petelicki, were found dead under mysterious circumstances.

Wow

Giant rabbits are a real thing. Am not sure if I am excited or scared.
They're cuddly, they're fluffy, and they're 4 feet tall. No, it's not the plot of a new Michael Bay children's film -- although add some exploding robots and, who knows -- these rabbits are for real. Meet Darius and his son, Jeff. They're giant co...

I like how the three prequels didn't get counted at all 😀
 
It looks like JJ Abrams may have succeeded in creating a fourth Star Wars movie. It's a bit too early to be sure, of course, and trailers are at their heart lies -- but this one is quite promising indeed.

Where there any prequels? Aren't they a myth, like the matrix sequels?

Also why people usually get one or more pogo pin adapters or cables. Much less hassle.

+Roshan James indeed, just fascinating that using Excel for mission critical computing still works in the mid-00s!

Went downhill in recent years. Too crowded and there's nothing to do but eat. Bad parking availability too. Nearby Kemang Village is much better.

The most authentic Spanish restaurant in Jakarta by far, serving a wide range of pintxos and tapas, as well as larger dishes such as paella. Came for brunch and would have to go back with a larger group to cover more of the menu!

Overpriced, badly prepared (though decently plated) food and drink, overly loud music with thumping bass reminiscent of a cheap club. This place banks only on its location on top of Jakarta's tallest building. If you're not an impressionable yuppie, avoid this place.

This mall has thrived amidst the ever-changing whims of Jakarta's upper-middle classes for over two decades - and no surprise, catering to most tastes, with everything from secluded bookstores to elegant boutiques to food outlets and cinemas
