Angelesen #45

Howdy y’all! Böse Zungen behaupten, dass ich zwischen August und November ziemlich schwer zu erreichen bin. Tja die #CrazyTime gibt es jedes Jahr. Nach meinem Aufenthalt in Wien ist die USA an der Reihe! Ich bin derzeit gerade in San Francisco, wo die Temperaturen mit 28°C sehr im Rahmen des erträglichen sind! Nachdem ich heute 15km rumgelaufen bin treffe ich noch einige Freunde bevor am Mittwoch das BadCamp beginnt.

OnePlus OxygenOS built-in analytics (chrisdcmoore.co.uk)

from a development point of view, wanting to know about abnormal reboots seems legitimate – but the screen on/off and unlock activities feel excessive.

Ein Privacy WTF der Extraklasse!

What will programming look like in the future? (highscalability.com)

Right now, limited as we are by human programmers using methods that haven’t changed much in 30 years, software is just nibbling at the world. And that won’t scale. We need more software. A lot more software. And humans are the bottleneck.

No Justification for Spanish Internet Censorship During Catalonian Referendum (eff.org)

With an extremely narrow range of exceptions, government censorship of the Internet is prohibited by Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, both of which guarantee everyone’s right to receive and impart information and ideas regardless of frontiers. The Spanish government’s censorship of online speech during the Catalonian referendum period is so wildly disproportionate and overbroad, that its violation of these instruments seems almost beyond dispute.

Keine Regierung sollte ihren Bürgern jemals vorschreiben was sie im Internet anzusurfen haben. Geschweige denn Seiten in diesem Masse sperren – Basta!

Bluetooth won’t replace the headphone jack (theverge.com)

To improve Bluetooth, platform vendors like Apple and Google are riffing on top of it, and that means they’re building custom solutions. And building custom solutions means they’re taking the opportunity to prioritize their own products, because that is a fair and rational thing for platform vendors to do.

Preach!

The playbook is simple: last year, Apple dropped the headphone jack and replaced it with its W1 system, which is basically a custom controller chip and software management layer for Bluetooth. The exemplary set of W1 headphones is, of course, AirPods, but Apple also owns Beats, and there are a few sets of W1 Beats headphones available as well. You can still use regular Bluetooth headphones with an iPhone, and you can use AirPods as regular Bluetooth headphones, but the combination iPhone / W1 experience is obviously superior to anything else on the market. No one else can make W1 headphones, and obviously no one else can modify iOS to support their own custom wireless Bluetooth riff. So your choices are the four W1 headphones, and then a large market of second-class citizens.

Julian Assange Told Young Catalans What Chat Apps To Use To Avoid Spanish Authorities (buzzfeed.com)

Tracking police activity was one of the largest priorities for the Catalan activists on the day of the vote. A user-generated map quickly started getting shared around. “There was a map, a Google map, with points where the police had been and you could see different colors. I don’t know who made it,” Rosique said.
