Possibly my favorite cover of Drake's Energy.

Warning: explicit lyrics.

Joshua Smith Miniaturizes Hong Kong Through Tiny Architectural Settings
https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/11/20/joshua-smith-miniaturizes-hong-kong-through-tiny-architectural-settings/

Awesome new work from Joshua Smith up on designboom.

kowloon is the most populous urban area in hong kong, making it a prime subject for smith‘s work. his miniature works primarily focus on the often overlooked aspects of the urban environment such as grime, rust, and decay or discarded cigarettes and graffiti. through careful observation, smith recreates detailed replicas that mimic real life.

Excellent overview of the key attestation capabilities in Android.
Key attestation allows you to verify that the ECDSA key your app requested actually lives in secure hardware

With Android Keystore, you can generate an asymmetric authentication key, such as a 256-bit ECDSA key, and have each user sign in with their complex web password once, then register the public key in the bank's customer account database.

I find this a problem with most operating systems. Google Input Tools can help where most other system fail, but you kind of need native input support.

This cracked me up. Japanese girls trying to read the travel guides for phrases used when going on vacation to Hong Kong.

PSA: Linking against platform libraries not in the NDK could break your app

Android is moving from OpenSSL to BoringSSL in the AOSP (https://goo.gl/BZOaBc).  If your app links against platform libraries (such as libcrypto.so) that aren’t in the Android NDK, it’ll likely break in a future platform release.

The move to BoringSSL will increase the consistency amongst Android, Chrome, and other products.  To find out more about BoringSSL and its motivations, see Adam Langley’s blog post (https://goo.gl/pFyZVI).  For most developers this should be an invisible change.  However some apps mistakenly link against the platform libcrypto.so or libssl.so, which isn’t part of the Android NDK API.  If you’re using the Android NDK in your app, you must not link against any library that isn’t part of the Android NDK API.  These libraries are not public API, and may change or break without notice across releases and devices. In addition, you may expose yourself to security vulnerabilities. Instead, you should modify your native code to call the Java cryptography APIs via JNI or to statically link against a cryptography library of your choice.
