AdBlock is a thing. A lot of people shield themselves from ads using it. Some adblocking software also blocks tracking pings (e.g. Google Analytics and Gemius). Today I've noticed, that Gemius changed a method of tracking page views, they've introduced a redirection:
1. first party redirects to Gemius with a back-url set as GET parameter
2. gemius saves a visit and redirects to back-url
It's interesting, I've never seen such behaviour before on a trusted websites. I guess it's a time for even more sophisticated privacy-aware browsers/plugins.
1. Create a directory.
2. Upload some files.
3. Rename files so they look nice (date_string_part.mp3)
4. Share directory with people having link.
5. Click on link to check if it works.
6. Try to open a file.
7. The warning says the file is too big to be scanned. It shows the name from before the change. It may scare people.
8. When clicked "download", the prompt file name is the new file name (as expected).
Did you ever used this awesome app through webpage and wanted to save results? It allowed you to choose between Dropbox, Google Drive etc. Cool. No, no, wait, not cool. Most apps want the access to the full content of your cloud drive. I'm sure that at least Dropbox supports a directory permissions. But you know what? It doesn't allow a user to restrict app to a directory. It's totally up to the app. But devs of these apps either don't care, don't see a value in it or purely see a value in accessing all your ifles. So for a user it's all or nothing. A bit like Android up to date (new version is going to have some more extensive permission policy).
The lack of control makes most my cloud storages useless except backing up some files. In offline world I can always unplug harddrive...
In section 4.1 they write about doing PCA on a RGB pixels. I'm trying to reproduce it by:
1. compute covariance matrix (for a test i use: numpy.cov)
2. compute eigenvalue/eigenvectors (numpy.linalg.eig)
3. draw random vector a (3 elements)
4. compute a quantity to be add to an image rgb values
The computed values are big for red component of pixel (mostly >150 from range 0-255). I'm wondering if they've seen the same. The resulted images looks somewhat weird.
Also, did they apply it only to train set? (i understood that yes)
I click on a "show on map" button on Facebook event. It opens a Google Maps with a route from my location to a given destination. Cool. Now, I want to mark a place by a star, but no matter how I click on map, it's not possible :-(
Google Maps user story 2
Shows my location marked by a dot, I type a name of the street and building number. All the suggestions shown are in different cities, so I have to put the city name explicitly, despite being around 500 meters from the destination. It's very frustrating 'feature'.

tl;dr; one can restrict access the apps have to smses, contacts and others private stuff which were touched by a lot unrelated apps for unknown purposes ;-)
Android warns that apps were written with old Android in mind, but I've not encountered any issues so far. (I mostly declined access to my data for things that should not access it anyway, now I can install Fb messanger and What'sUp ;-) )
I thought about: adding one linear layer summing an output from previous layer having 5 binary neurons and using mean square error.
I'm looking for similar problems, papers, tutorials, cost functions. Any suggestions?
- have Chrome with 20+ open tabs,
- PC restart / crash, Chrome is killed unexpectedly
- PC and Chrome restarted
- Chrome asks, whether to reopen old tabs, say yes
- all Google owned websites freeze, gmail/G+ work until Hangouts loads and then die
- only pkill chrome solves an issue, just closing/opening doesn't work
I've worked around the problem by installing an extension "Session Buddy" and never clicking "restore" in Chrome:
