Fingerprint Unlocking, A 5th Amendment Bypass?.....

18 Jan 2017

As reported on Arstechnica.com in THIS ARTICLE, recently a judge ruled against a criminal who appealed his ruling based on the fact he was forced to use his fingerprint to unlock his cell phone during the investigation - citing his 5th amendment rights as to not self-incriminate.  The ruling found that the fingerprint itself is proof of self, not proof of knowledge - giving them full right to utilize this for the purpose of unlocking the device.  Had it been a passcode or other form of password/phrase/pattern, this may have been completely different......

 

Many devices will require you to use a passcode/phrase/pattern on the first unlocking of a device.  The investigators in this case must have been quick to act or were fore-thinking enough to not restart or turn off the device..... So, food for thought.  Perhaps a new feature should ensue in that your primary pass-"thing" should be required beyond a particular length of time?

 

What are your thoughts?

Posted By livinginkaos in DroidRzr News and Reviews

The Android N Preview program has expanded beyond the Nexus line to include the Sony Experia Z3 !

In recent weeks, Google had announced that they were going to start making the preview available to devices outside of the Nexus program.  Looks like we have our first in this series with the Z3.  This requires manual flashing - no beta program ota.  However, once installed, Sony will update via OTA when available.

 

Own a Sony Experia Z3 and want to test it out?  Get your download HERE

Android N Preview OTA Zips Now Available

OTA Zip Files Now Available for Android N Preview 2

 

Attached File  02.png   53.78KB   4 downloads

 

Google is stepping up their game and posting the OTA zip files to their developer site for the Android N preview to take you from 1 to 2.  The idea of receiving OTA's for preview software is just down right awesome and this little nugget makes it even more so - alleviating the need for a PC to update and not having to wait for the OTA to be pushed.

 

Google's advancements here with the preview software and the previous marketing on the Nexus line having been sold at the top carrier stores has this on a great growth path.  I for one am looking forward to what they have to offer next.....

 

You can find the OTA zip for your device as well as the install instructions HERE 

 

 

Just a side note - having played with the 2nd version yesterday, it is definitely worth getting off the 1st version if you are running it as a daily.  Much more stable and the added features are a definite plus.  Keep in mind though, that being preview software and the security concerns that inherently contains, Google blocks the use of Android Pay and that will more than likely be the case throughout the preview period.

VZW Employees Strike

13 Apr 2016

VZW Strike 2016

Attached File  02.png   1.4MB   6 downloads

 

36,000 Verizon employees went on strike today 04-13-16.  While these employees aren't of the wireless division, but of the landline and FiOS division, this is still the largest US strike since the previous Verizon strike back in 2011.....  Wait, did you get that?  Yes, the previous largest strike was against Verizon as well.... This should say something, it does to me- however, I will keep my comments at bay on this one. 

 

They have been working since August without a contract and the union has finally said, enough is enough, bring us something worth discussing while we wait outside.  The corporation has been moving some jobs offshore to offset the loss of those divisions, despite the extreme growth their wireless division.

 

Keep up with the current happenings by following #verizonstrike on Twitter

 

And, of course, this happening during a presidential election year, plenty of opportunity for these elephantus jacka$$ candidates to ride the free publicity.....

I have a neighbor who is in his late 70's, and his health unfortunately is slowly deteriorating.  I was out raking leaves one day last month, and he came out.  I had met him before.  We started talking, and he told me served in the Army.  I thanked him for his service.  He looked at me, and there was a gleam in his eye.  No words were needed.  We both knew how great it felt for him to hear that.  After about a minute of silence, we started talking about yard work, and families, and the upcoming winter, and the apple orchard that used to be where my house currently sits.  We talked for about 45 minutes.  He could have talked forever.  He told me next time we would tell me some stories from his Army days.  I told him I looked forward to it.

 

And now, the rest of the story....  I saw him talking to another one my neighbors last weekend while I was once again raking leaves.  My next door neighbor disappeared, and a few minutes later had two beers.  He gave one to the Vet.  My neighbors drank and laughed out loud several times for over an hour as I raked.  

 

Please, thank a soldier today, past or present, if you see one.

 

 

I never thought about a vet in these terms.  Wow.

Honestly, I try to treat every day like veteran's day. They deserve so much more than what they receive. Having the support of the people who's freedom they are protecting goes a long ways.

Also, think of it in family terms. Most people will do anything for their immediate family up to and including death, yes? What a veteran has done is to extend an opening in their family to each and every one of us regardless of our faults, hatreds, etc. It is only right that we extend our own hands to them as family. No?

Samsung Pays You $50 with Samsung Pay Activation

09 Nov 2015

Posted By livinginkaos in DroidRzr News and Reviews

Do you own one of the following Devices:

 

S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ or Note 5 ???

 

Plan on using Samsung Pay?  Yes, then take a look at this.  

 

No? Well, maybe this will motivate you to at least set it up.....

 

With the activation and successful card set up in the Samsung Pay app, fill out the form from their website and they will send you a $50 rebate.  

 

Don't have a qualifying device, but know someone who does?  Let them in on it and maybe they'll buy you lunch.... or at least a corn dog and a pop .... :)
