Very short, but very good editorial on how the media sensationalizes security reporting.
 
I reckon that securing software is a thankless job. Few of us on the user side of things truly understand it. The day-to-day, I imagine, is not particularly sexy. But here we are, at the beginning of the end of Android, apparently. At the point of no return for ... well, whatever point you're…

Or, rather, not any more than just a few weeks ago, when the...

Devs, please please please use this feature. I want important messages from Facebook Messenger and KakaoTalk just as much as I want important SMS when I'm in priority mode.
 
Add people metadata to notifications to influence notification ranking and priority mode
Pro-tip by +Ian Lake

Android notifications always try to order notifications by importance. For a long time this was determined only by the notification’s priority and timestamp. With Android 5.0, a number of new metadata fields were added that influence ranking decisions. One of the most important of those is the option to associate people with the notification, via addPerson()
(http://goo.gl/LQw8J0)

addPerson() takes a URI in one of three forms:
- a CONTENT_LOOKUP_URI (http://goo.gl/2xA4ph) or the “permanent” link to an individual contact already in the user’s Contacts content provider
- a tel: schema for phone numbers, which will use ContactsContract.PhoneLookup (http://goo.gl/K6C36e) to find the associated user
- a mailto: schema for email addresses

This search results in one of three outcomes for each notification: no match found, a match found, or a starred contact found. Notifications from starred contacts are deemed the most important, while any match is deemed a higher priority than no contact at all. This means that adding people information may break a tie between similar notifications, favoring the notification that includes people in the user’s contacts.

If you’ve used priority mode to filter out notifications to only the essential, you may have noticed that one of the options there is to only receive calls or messages from starred contacts - this uses the same people metadata to determine whether a notification should interrupt a user. Adding this information can be key to ensuring that user’s expectations in priority mode are honored.

You don’t need to build your own contacts provider (http://goo.gl/4lwvU4) or even have the Contacts permission to take advantage of addPerson() - adding what information you have in the form of email addresses or phone numbers can be enough to improve the user’s notification experience, leveraging the contacts they already have on their device.

Wishlist for a new phone. My +Nexus​ 4 is starting to show its age (nearly three years!!). I think the battery is getting worn out, and I doubt it's getting +Android​ M in the fall. Still, it ought to last until the next Nexus phone debuts.

- Nexus
- Inexpensive like the Nexus 4 was
- Great camera with RAW capture, burst mode, and slow motion video
- Small (4.7 to 5 inches)
- Big enough battery to last a day in my pocket with moderately heavy usage
- Qi charging (the new 15W standard would be fantastic)
- Fingerprint reader
- Waterproof (I think it's a longshot for now, but I hope it'll be standard in a few years)
- Ambient display (notifications appear when screen is off)
- Co-processor for hotword detection
- Headphone jack on the bottom, not the top
- USB Type C

Neat! I like how this 1. includes photos I may not have posted and 2. lets me share via any method I want.
 
Walk down memory lane

Photos help us reminisce about the things we've done, bringing back events from one, two, or even ten years ago. Today, Google Photos is introducing a new opt-in feature where you can choose to privately rediscover your memories from the past. If you snapped photos on a hiking trip this time last year, chances are that Google Photos will let you know. And with a lifetime’s worth of photos and videos in one place, you’ll have lots of memories to look back on.

By opting in, you’ll get cards in the Assistant view reminding you of photos from events in your past, including a collage featuring people and places from that day. Share with whoever you want, however you want, whether that’s via email, a social network, or by showing the person next to you. Or savor the moment for yourself; it’s completely private until you decide to share.

The new feature is now available on Google Photos for iOS at https://goo.gl/toCWvw and the web at http://photos.google.com, and is rolling out to Google Photos for Android at https://goo.gl/BajWpo

I haven't watched this yet, but it's free and the premise sounds interesting.

ICANN is considering a move that would make private domain registration a thing of the past for all commercial sites.  This means that users would no longer be able to use a service such as “Domains by Proxy” in order to hide their true identity from anyone who does a WHOIS lookup.

The burgers are incredible! The portions of fries are huge; you probably only need one order per three people in your group. The staff is very friendly and helpful, too.

I've been three times since it opened, and have consistently been pleased. My food came quickly, even one time when the line was out the door. I've tried something different each time (cinnamon french toast, ham and cheese bagel, fruit and a bagel with cream cheese), and everything I've gotten has been delicious.
