In before my security friends post it. An impressively accurate description of the Apple encryption brouhaha.

I don't usually get excited for movies or TV shows before seeing them. But...

The characters in China Miéville’s The City & The City live their lives inside a visual challenge. We can’t see what will happen when the BBC and Mammoth Screen try to include us in that challenge.

Well, duh, who'd want the NSA searching through their email?
The NSA's system is “a little antiquated and archaic."

Whatever... if you don't know how to get lyrics without using an album specific app, you deserve to have no friends.

I'd gathered little bits and pieces of this, but this post cleared up a lot of things for me.
 
Posting this as a bookmark for myself as much as sharing with readers who may be similarly interested.

This week’s blogpost will be a little short and somewhat out of the ordinary - it’s on the subject of Arabic names. During the past two days I’ve encountered three journalistic examples of mutilat......

Small correction: The nickname "Abdoh" is a thing. As the article points, out, there is a whole family of mens' names of the form "Abd el X" for XN = {names of Allah} (where, famously, | N | = 99). E.g., "Abd el Hamid" means "Servant of The Praiseworthy". Well, "Abdoh" means "His Servant" and is a generic nickname for anyone named according to that schema.

I've been trying to track down why my Nexus Player runs low on RAM and kills processes every so often. I think there's a memory leak in surfaceflinger, and I'm wondering if it's caused/triggered by TuneIn Radio Pro.

When I'm running a stream, "adb shell dumpsys meminfo" shows surfaceflinger eating 3-4 kB more RAM every 5 seconds. When I stop the stream, it's fine again.

Hulu might've been doing something similar, but I uninstalled it, and TuneIn seems like the last culprit.

I'll admit though, that while I'm a coder, I'm not an Android developer, and so far this is anecdotal.

Ah I thought I'd deleted this. I'm more confident this is a general Nexus Player bug now, and filed https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=197832 . But for the record, this is with the latest beta TuneIn on 6.0.1.

Every so often, he'd pull the beanie up to show me his face. He seemed happy.

My eyes are still safe.
 
"The Eyes of the Salary Men Are Killing Me"

This man sat next to Manoj on the train to Shinjuku. He spoke passable English, and started chatting Manoj up about his taste in music. Manoj, being a man who asks tough questions, asked him: "So why are you wearing a beanie over your head?".

The man answered, "The eyes of the salary men.. they are KILLING ME". 

After a week there being a subject of some fascination, I began to see what he meant.

Look who's quoted. +Brandon Downey, Tech Leader.

I imagine some of the businesses don't know they are exploited but would like to know.
 

Open letter to Glenn Greenwald about why he (and his editors) should reveal the identity of the standards, companies, and products that have been compromised by the NSA:

Aw c'mon, this guy (whoever he is) is a dead ringer for Meder, especially during his poofy hair phase.
