Seems like what this really means is that all the links in your private emails will be sent to the USA where a bot will open them one by one using Chrome.
Yes, even when using it "On Premise".
I might be naïve but this seems like a big can of # worms. # anyone?



I'm using Xiaomi hardware, but thanksfully Android One software so I never had (or used) the Mint browser.
Still worrying, a lot.
And bad PR in outright denying it, extremely bad PR.

I find this article very interesting and share most of the author's fears regarding this bill.

"the fuck do you want?" emoticon incoming

Shortly on your mobile phone (and elsewhere) the new and shiny emoticon that any Italian would read as «what the fuck do you want?» or «what are you talking about? that's bullshit!». Use it with care. ;)

@zachtronics delivers, yet again.
I'm halfway thru the chapters and loving #Eliza so far!

#SQLite #Telegram JSON backup import, now updated to use the recently available group ids in the dump. Runs on #NodeJS.
(originally group id was generated sequentially during import)

I was just hit by a (trivial) truth:
#node is the new #perl.
(except i love it)

NERV Cannarsi-style

Dopo la lettura dell'articolo di Doc Manhattan sul nuovo adattamento di #Evangelion curato da Cannarsi io e Mauro e Mattia non potevamo esimerci dal produrre quest'immagine.

(English brief: Evangelion was re-dubbed in Italian, and it's so bad)

How does Apple (privately) find your offline devices?

I quote from the article:
How is this system going to avoid being a massive privacy nightmare?
The good news is that Apple claims that their system actually does provide strong privacy, and that it accomplishes this using clever cryptography. But as is typical, they’ve declined to give out the details how they’re going to do it. […] an incomplete technical description that Apple provided to Wired […] provides many hints. Unfortunately, what Apple provided still leaves huge gaps. It’s into those gaps that I’m going to fill in my best guess for what Apple is actually doing.

«There is a weird belief amongst policy makers that hacking an encryption system's key management system is fundamentally different than hacking the system's encryption algorithm. The difference is only technical; the effect is the same. Both are ways of weakening encryption.» #security #crypto #policy #backdoor #escrow

Creality Ender 3

…so, after a couple of years of trying to leave the idea aside, I finally bought a 3D printer.
I'm really amazing how good is a cheap printer (€217) nowadays, and how easy it was to set it up.
In the first concave prints I had lots of stringing, which I solved as suggested by CHEP.
So, yes, now I own a 118dB whistle and I don't even know why. :P

Hearing passwords

Turns out a mobile phone’s microphones can be used as a side-channel attack to “read” your PIN (or stuff).
Could a gaming app steal your bank PIN?

We need to choose either #security or #surveillance.
Fuck surveillance.

Quoting a recent post from Bruce Schneier:
Either everyone gets to spy, or no one gets to spy. And I believe we must choose security over surveillance, and implement a defense-dominant strategy.

…and this is but one of the reasons I dislike DRM

Microsoft announces it will shut down ebook program and confiscate its customers' libraries. Just another reminder that DRM is hostile towards users.

T.I.E. by theam Thumos

It's been a long time since I binge-read a #webcomic … and it's time to do it again, this time with my friends' noteworthy «T.I.E. — is the love on Mars?». =)

Electronic vote fail (in Switzerland)

As predicted by xkcd (and, well, most security professionals), critical flaws were indeed found: Bruce Schneier's article, mostly citing Cory Doctorow's.

Windows' windows position

Do you hate when Windows® happily decides the position of your windows isn't so important and scrambles them all around (e.g. after a resolution change, launching a full screen game, or attaching an extra monitor)?

Now you can use this, a public domain software I found on GitHub and improved to fix Win10 support some time ago.
