Move over, Raspberry Pi - Ocean is here!

USB 3.0 + battery makes it a good choice for a portable server/router/NAS.

I'm planning to ditch the Pi in my car and replace with the Ocean. 2 days of battery life + active solar charging = no more power issues!

#ocean #linux #IoT
 
Tiny computer that’s powerful enough to run a server — Node.js, to be precise — pre-loaded with Linux, a 1GHz dual-core CPU, 1 GB of RAM, USB 3.0, a 4200mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and WiFi
This is the perfect server for building your little hack projects.

Disappointed with the Nexus 5X? Want a phone with a 5.2" display, 3GB RAM and free of bloatware?

Best Nexus alternative?

"Robin comes with an unlocked bootloader and open source drivers. You can load CyanogenMod or any other ROM you want, and Robin is still under warranty - even if you brick it."
 
It looks like people are pretty interested in the Nextbit Robin, as the Kickstarter for the intriguing smartphone has officially passed the $1 million mark.

PSA: There's no need to panic about the new Linux/Android exploit CVE-2016-0728

"Devices with Android 5.0 and above are protected, as the Android SELinux policy prevents third party applications from reaching the affected code. Also, many devices running Android 4.4 and earlier do not contain the vulnerable code introduced in Linux kernel 3.8, as those newer kernel versions are not common on older Android devices."
Sometimes a security "hole" is really a tiny security "leak."

Does anyone know how to turn off debug mode? Clicking on the debug mode just restarts the app, and there doesn't seem to be an option to turn it off.

+darken Well, not entirely correct since the setting persists for that whole app session and only resets on app exit. I was almost right. ;-)

Windows XP - The future of Sydney Airport? 😁

Irony aside, it's surprising that a progressive city like Sydney is still running outdated XP machines, and that too not sufficiently hardened against crashes - and potential vulnerabilities.

Why aren't they running Linux, or at least, a more recent version of Windows?

I did a comparison of the Nexus 5X and the LG G2 - both devices have a 5.2" display, but the Nexus 5X is considerably more larger. http://imgur.com/w14qE3a

Which made me wonder, how many people are out there who would rather have a phone with thin bezels and mono speakers?

On a related note, if you really need stereo speakers on a phone, why? What's your use case?

For most situations a mono speaker is fine for me. Stereo comes in handy when watching movies and such. Which at that point I just connect my Bluetooth speakers or use headphones.

Understanding what Doze mode means for your app

Pro-tip by +Joanna Smith

Marshmallow introduced a new way for devices to preserve battery life by going idle. As an app developer, this means that there is now a difference between your app falling out of the foreground and the device itself being idle.

Before you start to panic about how to wake the device from Doze mode (https://goo.gl/eiAJbo), I recommend taking a moment to figure out if you even need to bust through that idleness.

Doze mode is different in that the entire device is taking a nap, not just the least-recently used apps (such is the case with App Standby). Doze mode is activated when the device is not plugged in, when the screen is locked, and when no motion has been detected for some time. These assumptions imply that the user has put down the device and walked away. So, when they come back and pick their phone up off the counter, it should not have dropped to 30% battery. It should, essentially, be in the exact state it was in when they placed it on the counter. Right?

So, the exceptions to Doze mode should be truly exceptional. There are two situations that I believe would qualify. First, if you have new information that is worth causing the user to walk over and look at their phone. Doze mode honors high-priority messages through Google Cloud Messaging (https://goo.gl/v8l1RH), so that you can respond to important moments, such as that new picture Mom just sent. Just don’t use it as an excuse to download a huge amount of data: try instead including the information needed to display a notification in the push message itself, and then fetch everything else when the user returns (and Doze mode ends).

And secondly, you may have work to do that is time-sensitive. But even AlarmManager (http://goo.gl/HDqEwd) is not exempt from Doze mode. However, just because the alarm will not fire during Doze mode does not mean it is lost. For example, an alarm set with setExact() will actually not trigger while Dozing, but will fire as soon as Doze mode exits. And for most use cases, this is actually fine, because if the user isn’t even holding their device, you probably don’t need to be syncing right now. But if you do have a task that is worth draining the user’s battery when they aren’t there, you can rely on setExactAndAllowWhileIdle() to wake your app even during Doze mode. Check out our previous pro-tip (https://goo.gl/IENTID) on working with alarms and background work for more details.

Ideally, Doze won’t disrupt your app flow too much. But spend some time thinking carefully about when your app may need special consideration. And after making any necessary changes, you can spend some more time testing your app. We’ve created several super helpful adb commands (https://goo.gl/8PGom5) to make it easy to see how your app recovers when coming out of Doze mode.

So happy Dozing, developers. And continue to #BuildBetterApps

Good food, nice ambience, reasonable pricing, friendly staff, fast service. Oh, and awesome sombreros!

Friendly staff but terrible food. This is by far the worst Indian food I've had in New Zealand, nay, my whole life. We were a party of 13 and we ordered a wide variety of vegetarian and meat dishes and were all of the opinion that every single dish was bad. The worst was the Dal Tadka, which smelt and tasted like it was stale. Paneer and lamb pieces were few. All the curries were sweet for some reason - they didn't taste like curries at all. No chilli in the chilli chicken. The entrées weren't bad (samosas /pakoras) but they were cold and the pakoras weren't crunchy. The mango lassi was good though, and so was the plain rice and rotis. The staff were friendly and they accommodated our needs so it's unfortunate that the food was bad. Perhaps it might have been catered towards the Kiwi palate, but if you're looking for an authentic Indian experience, stay away from Indian Leaf.

I ordered some pizza and paid online by debit card, got a confirmation email too. When I went to pick it up, they said that they didn't get the order, because the manager wasn't there today. That in itself was ridiculous, I mean why do you need a manager to manually process online orders? Anyways, they said that they'll start making the pizza immediately, and it'd take about 10 minutes. I went back in 15, only to be told that the manager never received my order, and that I had to sort it out with Dine In. Seriously? The email clearly said that the order was confirmed, and I didn't have to do anything. Of course, Dine In won't answer any calls on a Sunday, and basically I lost my money, I was hungry and angry. I can't even get my money back from the bank because I paid via debit card. So basically I lost my money and you can bet I'm never going to go back there. It's a shame, I really like the food but the manager was less than helpful. If I were the manager, I'd have sorted it out for the customer no matter who's fault it was. Now they've permanently lost a customer, and potentially more, as you can bet I'll be telling all my mates to avoid Mediterranean Food Warehouse.

Music system is really bad. Speakers distort the music when played at loud volume. This was during Bryan Kearney's gig. Totally spoiled the mood.

Their vegetarian pizzas are *the* best in town! Especially the Vegetarian Slingshot (with the Paneer topping) - so delish that even hardcore meat-lovers fall in love with this one!
