Sounds pretty backwards.
 
I've lost track of who shared this with me, but it's a good screed.
We can’t ignore the composition of the Unicode Consortium’s members, directors, and officers -- the people who define the everyday writing systems of all languages across the globe.

Yes, I was just resetting my tablet and needed a quick save.

It's a good seed though: various trees (including wolf-infested forests), mushrooms, mountains, sea, snowy terrain. Lots of emerald ore down under.

Harshest, meanest critique of the British conversation and tone.

But mean I mean it hits the target, and it hurts!

Real thing.
 
Mahatma Gandhi - one of the most towering figures in world politics - now has an eternal home in our country, with the unveiling of his statue in Parliament Square today.

It was an honour to take part in the ceremony alongside his grandson Shri Gopalkrishna Gandhi, Indian Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley and legendary film star Amitabh Bachchan.

Ridiculous little-minded people.
A school in New York state apologises after an uproar was caused by students reciting the US Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic.

Fools. Of course, the pledge of allegiance is pretty bloody stupid as well. I expect that in most of Europe, such a thing would make you look like a fascist.

Apparently, Lenovo installs a piece of military-grade spying tool on laptops.

Well, now I am worring what's the deal with the tablets. Computers are easy, just reinstall, and they are less used these days.

But tablets -- how much do you know what's going on under the bonnet there? And how many tablets are produced in China? Mine is anyway. Something to think about... :-(
 
Lenovo pre-installs a web proxy that injects ads. It MITMs HTTPS traffic by installing its own trusted root certificate.

Always install your OS manually. Don't trust the OEM's version.

EDIT:  Holy shit, apparently it's the same key for all installs: https://twitter.com/fugueish/status/568258997578371072

(The private key is necessarily present on the machine. So basically if the key is not public already it will be shortly, and anyone will be able to spoof any web site to Lenovo users.)

EDIT2: Uninstalling the app does NOT remove the certificate. https://twitter.com/metsfan/status/568265468173107200
Ok, I will take a look at ESET. Thanks   Yes, VisualDiscovery is part of the bundled software in my lenovo laptop.. It is from a developer called Superfish.

Secretive collaboration with Google/Facebook? Hard to know for sure, but it smells like a very important partner is involved there, whoever it is.

Get it watched. No rush, it took me 20+ years to find this piece again. Boy is it good.

Do they have English subtitles?

Don't spoil my joy. They might do, might not -- I'll watch once over in Norwegian and then look for that fix later.

Literally, for almost 30 years I've been looking for this art. Quite literally.
