First crash was much lighter, but somehow snapped the whole thing in half, thing the glue is stronger than the polystyrene!

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:

https://security.googleblog.com/2016/04/protecting-against-unintentional.html

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.

That's exactly how i feel! So great to be a creator rather than a seller or manager or director - and to have your creations always with you :-)

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.

Hobbyking are stocking them in the UK http://bit.ly/graphenebat

In reviews these don't seem to have been coming out too well to be honest, heavier than expected. I've not ended up buying any. Still, it's a start.

Been a while since I've shared a quad video. This is exactly the type of shenanigans that got me excited about FPV quad flying in the first place! Really impressive flying from Mr Steele, must have felt amazing from inside the headset.
