So sick of mass spying
 
Apple and Google Execs met in English mansion to secretly discuss government surveillance plans

By +Nirave Gondhia 
An 18th-century Mansion in England hosted an unlikely meeting of spy chiefs from seven countries and representatives from tech giants last week. According to The Intercept, the meeting at Ditchley Park was held to discuss the topic of government surveillance and was an opportunity for the countries to discuss the reluctance of Apple and Google to allow access to their confidential servers. The three day conference was attended by spy chiefs fr...

Applies to Canada too. Although I don't think our cellular congestion is as bad on robelus 
Are we prepared for video-streaming en masse, on a structural, network level?

We have a tenth of their population. I'd expect cellular subscriptions would be around that same ratio as well. Our problem (at least right now) is unused spectrum that was bought solely to limit competition. I'd be shocked if congestion was an actual issue here.

Damn well done boys
 
The Canadians captured a bonus of $1 million Swiss francs by winning all 10 games in regulation.

I've never seen a penalty overturned before :)

I'm so sick of extending copyright. No. It ends. 
The government's decision to extend the term of copyright for sound recordings in the budget may have taken most copyright observers by surprise, but not the music industry. I've posted earlier on their extensive lobbying efforts on the issue and how the extension will reduce competition, increase costs for consumers, and harm access to Canadian Heritage. The record of lobbyist meetings gives a hint of the reasons behind the extension, but a lett...

Oh I like this too
 
Aww... Check out this scrapped Android L notification divider. It had four Googley dots on it. I want.

Spotted in this year-old Google dev video https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=36&v=FbVWtYPpzIs

It was probably deemed "too Googley" for something that is part of AOSP. There really isn't any Google branding in the stock system like this. Maybe if the notification panel ever gets parted out into a "Google Notification Panel" app, then they could add branding like this.
