Friends do not let friends use CNET's Download.com

http://www.howtogeek.com/210265/download.com-and-others-bundle-superfish-style-https-breaking-adware/

Very scary stuff...
It’s a scary time to be a Windows user. Lenovo was bundling HTTPS-hijacking Superfish adware, Comodo ships with an even worse security hole called PrivDog, and dozens of other apps like LavaSoft are doing the same. It’s really bad, but if you want your encrypted web sessions to be hijacked just head to CNET Downloads or any freeware site, because they are all bundling HTTPS-breaking adware now.

One of the things that first drew me to Mozilla was this sentence from our manifesto: “The Internet is a global public resource that must ...

Oh! Settings.canDrawOverlays() can return wrong values if there are multiple apps using the same sharedUserId installed on the device.

I'd be happy to see this API used by Hangouts, G+, Gmail, Facebook, IRCCloud and many more. :)
Have you ever wished that a website could notify you when something important happened, even if you didn't have the site open? Maybe you've got an incoming WebRTC call, an instant message, or a financial update. Perhaps your city just declared an emergency snow plowing schedule.

So every time I plug my USB headphones into my MacBook it's at max volume for a second and then goes back to my headphones volume level. One more week and I am deaf. This didn't happen with the old headphones and the audio jack. Is MacOS X broken or is it my headphones' fault?

So +Chris Lacy's Link Bubble is now kind-of open-source? :)

There's only one annoying thing with USB Type-C: I can't connect all my devices to the same cable. :)

I was looking for a tiny adapter to turn this Type-C plug into a micro-USB plug but it seems like all existing adapters are the other way around (Turning micro-USB into Type-C).

At least you don't have the problem of attaching Thunderbold II devices to Thunderbold III laptops... no adapter for any direction.

Happy International Data Privacy Day! A good day to update your software - actually every day is. And maybe get rid of Flash. The web has become quite usable without it. And while you are at it: Do you still need this Silverlight plugin?

Mark your calendar: we're back on Februar, 24th with 3 great Android talks. And yes, there's food, drinks, and beer... #gdg
Our first meet-up in 2016 is hosted at 1&1 and comes with 3 great talks: • Introduction to RxJava/RxAndroid: the RX libraries have gained great popularity among developers lately. RX solves asynchronous programming elegantly based on the Observer pattern. This is especially helpful on Android where lots of interactions are asynchronous to the UI. Speaker: Egor Andreevic • Complex Android Apps at 1&1: Learn how the Android development team utiliz...

Tagline
Working on Firefox for Android. Living in Bavaria (Passau & Munich). Developer of Yaaic and blogging about Android development on Androidzeitgeist.com.
Introduction
Hi! I'm Sebastian and work on Firefox for Android at Mozilla.

I developed Yaaic - an Android IRC client with now more than 100.000 downloads. Besides that I'm blogging about Android development on Android Zeitgeist and have been the technical reviewer of the book Smashing Android UI. Last but not least I'm one of the organizers of the GDG Android Munich.

I love conferences, nerds, open-source / free software, Android and web development.

Make friends, learn stuff, make the world a better place.
