What?!! We've had this here in Europe since 1992 and it's only just now being rolled out in US?
On October 1 st of this year, a big change is coming to credit cards in the U.S. It’s a new-to-the-U.S. processing technology, first introduced ...

They're hopelessly behind. Many places you pay with signature, if they accept cards. Bank checks are still a regular thing.

Hver morgen løber jeg en tur. Hvis jeg glemmer det, bliver jeg grebet af skyld og skam. I ferien har jeg spist flere is end jeg burde. Det ses på stranden, og jeg skammer mig. Jeg føler ubehag i min runde rare mumitroldekrop. Jeg får monster-skæld-ud af mit indre fitness-overjeg.

Finally - after clearing the system update download folder and force updating (wuauclt.exe /updatenow) I'm now updating my VM.

BTW the Win10 ISO from the official Microsoft homepage only works for Home edition, even though it says that it works for both Home and Pro...

And there's no Win 10 in Intune / licensing portal, go figure...

Pretty sound advice - do this and be safe, until an update rolls out...
 
Protect your #android  phone against the #stagefright  bug before +Zimperium VP Joshua Drake shows the world how the #stagefright  vulnerability can be exploited at  #blackhat  and +DEF CON security conferences next week.

He is expected to demonstrate Stagefright and a few more critical security bugs in Android that can be used to attack about a billion devices all over the world.

Confirmed +Malthe Høj-Sunesen - so I won't get the OnePlus 2 it seems.

I was just excited today, when I went to McDrive and paid with MobilePay using NFC - now that wireless payments are finally taking off in Denmark I'm not about to get a phone that doesn't support it.

I predict a failure coming on - +OnePlus are not going to sell a single phone, if it doesn't include NFC...

Those who say they don't need NFC, never learned how to use it....ignorance is Bliss! Once you control your entire home Automation/Security system, pay everywhere, controls your cars audio playlist, have house guests connect to your private networks with a tap....and 100 other NFC cool things.....you'd know why NFC-less is a deal breaker....the novice user who just turns on Facebook and sends texts will never understand.

Finally! Thanks +Bradley Horowitz​ for sharing the vision of what's next with +Google+​ and +Google​ products in general 👍☺
 
We're excited to keep making Google+ an even better place for people to engage around their shared interests, with the content and people who inspire them.  At the same time, we'll be making some changes across Google so people who don't use Google+ don't need a public profile to use other Google products.  You can read more on the Google Blog here: http://goo.gl/08a5cF

Microsoft has a problem with Azure - noone seem to know how to pronounce it - even people posing as official representatives,, consultants and programmers. I'm going bonkers over all the different variations over "Ass-ure", "Ace-ure", "Ace-ya" and "Azyr".

Maybe I'm wrong, but I pronounce it like the word "assure" - as in a promise to keep something safe/secure/working/accessible - which makes logical sense (to me at least)...

I find this quite disturbing - lasers, are used for connecting from the ground to the drones and for relaying connections between drones. Haven't we all been told not to point our laser pens towards the sky, at aircrafts, now it's suddenly OK to do this from static installations. I know the lasers will probably be in a non visible range, but it could still be a threat to pilots.

Also - will users be required to have a Facebook account to connect? It appears not, but you never know the future terms for using their technology...

I'm guessing that flying through a laser light at 300 - 600 mph (sorry for the mph) would barely be noticeable to a pilot. Exposure would be a fraction of a second. And at that, the chance of accidentally intercepting a static beam with the cockpit would probably be less likely than winning the lottery. I think it's different than someone actively tracking and illuminating a cockpit.

Yup! They're doing a lot to stop exploits. There will always come new ways of hacking into devices, so let's give them credit for what's done already and not bicker about what's just just come up (the latest text exploit) - I'm sure that hole will be filled shortly...
 
There’s common, mistaken assumption that any software bug can be turned into a security exploit.  In fact, most bugs aren’t exploitable and there are many things Android has done to improve those odds. We’ve spent the last 4 years investing heavily in technologies focused on one type of bug -- memory corruption bugs -- and trying to make those bugs more difficult to exploit. 

A list of some of those technologies that have been introduced since since Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) are listed here: https://source.android.com/devices/tech/security/enhancements/index.html  The most well known of these is called Address Space Layout Randomization (‘ASLR’), which was fully completed in Android 4.1 with support for PIE (Position Independent Executables) and is now on over 85% of Android devices. This technology makes it more difficult for an attacker to guess the location of code, which is required for them to build a successful exploit.  (For the layperson — ASLR makes writing an exploit like trying to get across a foreign city without access to Google Maps, any previous knowledge of the city, any knowledge of local landmarks, or even the local language.  Depending on what city you are in and where you’re trying to go, it might be possible but it’s certainly much more difficult.)  But we didn’t stop with ASLR, we’ve also added NX, FortifySource, Read-Only-Relocations, Stack Canaries, and more.

Like most advanced security technologies, we’re always assessing the effectiveness of these new approaches, and looking for ways to refine them to better protect users. We know that some bugs are simply not exploitable, even without exploit mitigation.  We know these technologies make exploitation more difficult — and that in some instances that they make exploitation impossible.  But the research community today is incentivized to find lots of bugs rather than to test exploit mitigation technologies, so it can be difficult to know if exploitation of bugs is actually possible.

So, to help test these technologies, we designed the Android Security Rewards [ https://g.co/androidsecurityrewards ] program to strongly incentivize researchers to actually prove that an issue is exploitable.  We will pay up to $30,000 for developers that provide working remote exploits against current Nexus devices.  So far we have had a few issues filed as security bugs, but haven’t had anyone submit an exploit in an attempt to be paid via Android Security Rewards.  (Some people warn me that it’s tempting fate to make that statement.  But that’s not true: this is an intentional request for researchers to start testing those defenses. We want to know about when Android’s exploitation mitigation works, and when it doesn’t work. So I hope this will result in an exploit being presented. The sooner we know about it, the sooner Android users will get better protections.)

Of course, if there is any chance that an issue might be exploitable, we’ll quickly provide a patch for the issue to our partners, to our Android devices, and to the public via the Android Open Source Project.

But updates are truly a last resort.  They should be neither the first nor the only step in a multi-layered stack of security technology. I’m optimistic that advanced exploitation mitigation technology in Android will help us to move beyond the period of time when fast patching was the only solution available to secure devices.  And I look forward to more research into how these technologies can be used to prevent exploitation on Android and other platforms.

+Alex Gourenko I'm going to take the chance anyway - but maybe I'll have to remove the VM tools, upgrade to Win10, then install the VM tools again - maybe then the Win10 specific drivers will install. I'm guessing you installed the preview from scratch in a new VM? Then it would have pulled the right drivers from the VM tools install, from the start...

Introduction
The curious geek - always in search of new tech to play with. In touch with IT infrastructure (network, servers, virtualization) through my daily work and running a self-hosted Wordpress blog from home - mostly about gadgets, tech, apps and often related to open source in general and Ubuntu Linux in particular. The blog is in Danish, but Google Translate is helpful ;o)

I'm a heavy thinker, like to invent things and do things differently - also i tend to sometimes over-elaborate on things - bare with me! ;o)

Circle me, if you care for any of the following:
Android, Google, Ubuntu, Linux, Open source, Electronics, Gadgets, New tech and IT in general (including infrastructure subjects).

Nysgerrig og Geeky - arbejder til daglig med IT infrastruktur og blogger i fritiden om alt hvad jeg finder interessant - oftest om gadgets, apps/programmer/services, specielt relateret til open source og Ubuntu i særdeleshed.

Jeg hoster selv min egen blog og derfor handler en del indlæg også om netop de udfordringer der er med at køre sin egen linux server og hoste eget Wordpress site.

Tilføj mig, hvis du har følgende interesser:
Android, Google, Ubuntu, Linux, Open source, Electronik, Gadgets, New tech og generel IT relateret (inklusiv IT infrastruktur).

Men desværre har køkkenet et stort logistik problem, som de bliver nødt til at gøre noget ved - der er for lang ventetid mellem retter eller ved supplering (i forb. med ad libitum) og der går for lang tid indtil alle ved bordet har fået deres ret.
