Hey, I'm trying to find out about Weave support/library for Android Things DP3, any hints? It's mentioned a couple of times (like on the AT DP home page), but I'm guessing this is not supported yet?

Secure all the bits! Check your data transfers are secure and prevent accidental regressions to plain text.
Secure those bits!

The Android security team has been hard at work building new tools to help developers protect user data in transit.  :)  Yesterday Alex posted about two great features that shipped last year in M:

I'm particularly proud of the strategy I came up with to help detect any plaintext traffic leaving an app using a complex pile of iptables rules.  It's super easy to enable detection in your app with just one method call to this new StrictMode API:

https://developer.android.com/reference/android/os/StrictMode.VmPolicy.Builder.html#detectCleartextNetwork()

And here's the guts of where the iptables rules are generated using the powerful u32 module to do "shallow" packet inspection, both IPv4/v6 and TCP/UDP are supported:

https://android.googlesource.com/platform/system/netd/+/master/server/StrictController.cpp

Since it does bit banging to sniff out the explicit SSL 3.1 (TLS 1.0) signature, I don't recommend shipping it enabled in production, as that version number might increment in the future.

Graphene batteries are here! Good to see a new battery technology hit the pro/consumer market. At the moment they're for high demand devices, but applied to smaller tech we could see faster, more efficient charging with high capacities and less heat.
