(1) For the reasons I explained in my latest post, I have to focus on my own #AppStore issue and other priorities and obligations, so to my dismay can't follow the #EpicGames v. #Apple trial in real time because it's huge. This is likely my final thread on the topic for a month.
(2) #Antitrust has a vivid and at times "sensationalist" side, but the actual decisions are based on rather abstract elements -- and the rulings tend to be dry. #Apple won't look good when all the evidence is presented, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll lose the case.
(3) #EpicGames is heroic. I really mean it. I'm not saying I agree with them, their priorities, jurisdictional choices etc. 100%--the issue is too complex for that. But probably > 95%. I can't read minds, but an #antitrust plaintiff can't be more principled than @TimSweeneyEpic.

If U are looking for #opportunities in d USA & Canada, U will need to read this. I've posted many #Scholarships recently for #MSc & #PhD for youths. U are unable to apply cos of #GRE. I'll share why GRE & what U need to know @wakawaka_doctor @Oludeewon @olumuyiwaayo @AishaYesufu
What is GRE General Test?
This test was created by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to evaluate academic readiness of the individual for grad. school. Majority of grad. schools in Canada and USA, require this test as a part of the prerequisites to gain admission.@MrParamode
You CAN’T just wake up & decide to write GRE the next day. It takes a lot of effort & hard work.U have to follow processes, ensure U invest time & resources to achieve ur goal. In simple terms, GRE is more than cramming vocabulary words or skimming through basic mathematics.

A thread on how I managed to encrypt and store a video using #Flutter

Scroll for links, code snippets, and my general thought process...
Recording and saving videos locally isn't too difficult.

- camera
- path_provider

#flutter #android #s21 #video #coding

Below is the code for getting a file reference:

Created with @carbon_app   /// One call to get a file reference, set temp = false to
Encryption on the other hand is a foreign language to me. From my research, I learned that each user needs an #AsymmetricKeyPair that can be used to #encrypt and #decrypt data.

To generate these, I used the rsa_encrypt package.…

So, I've been using the Fire TV Recast / Stick combination for a while now. I have some issues...

#Amazon #FireTV #OTADVR #Android #FireTVStick #FireTVRecast
The guide is only available on the TV (via the stick device). For whatever reason, this means I can't schedule / adjust options for recordings from my phone.

(These devices both run Android, it's a toss up which has more capable hardware.)

This is a stupid UX decision!
I can't even count the number of times I've had to interrupt my current show just to setup a recording that I should be able to setup from my phone instead. You folks realize shows contain promos, correct?

Tesla's price may seem out of whack today. The P/E Ratio is insane, right?

But Amazon had similar P/E ratios back in 2014 and 3X higher in 2012. Look at where $AMZN is today.

$TSLA is my #1 stock because I am looking 5+ years out from today and basing my investment on that. Many people aren't doing that. Many people are looking at current or trailing earnings and comparing them to other vehicle makers.

And yes, I do fully expect there to be some major price pullback -- maybe even a short 30 to 50% drop in $TSLA price at some point, but over the long run, I think it goes way up.

Was about to install the famous #NHS #covid19 app (don't ask), yet couldn't find it easily in #GooglePlay (remember I use a fair few devices not just an old iPhone!)

These apps were offered to me, from Jersey (the island), Scotland, Northern Ireland and even #Gibraltar

Odd eh?
I thought I had mistyped etc but bring over the link, externally to double check.

It said, "Your device isn't compatible with this version"

Curious, you might have thought that #NHSX etc would have made work (at least part of it) with the #Amazon #Fire tablets (was using that)
Obviously, that type of request could seem unusual, as the app is mostly designed for phones.

But one of the major purposes here, is the mass take up of the app, getting everyone possible to use it and beat #covid19

And these are probably most prevalent #android devices about.

Let's talk a bit about MOTIVATION on #FOSS. How much do you need? How can it be maintained?How long can it last? Here it my experience working with #raylib for +7 years... SPOILER: It's not possible to be motivated all the time! 1/n
Original motivation: #raylib started as a weekend project, for my students to learn programming and be able to easily put things on the screen... also view/understand what was happening at a lower level (#opensource)! The idea itself seemed cool enough to motivate me a lot! 2/n
Results motivation: Students loved raylib and they started learning and creating things in just a few weeks... that was a great motivation to keep working, improving the library and adding new features! I received lot of positive feedback and engagement! Very motivating! 3/n

1/ Why #Tesla will be much more successful than #Apple, and much harder to compete against.

I am still admiring #SteveJobs and the great #Apple success, while I think #Telsa will have much greater success than Apple. This will have huge implications to $TSLA and competitors.
2/ It is easier to understand this from #Apple’s own loss of opportunities or strategic mistakes (Only IMO) over the last 10+ years:
. Chose to make iPhone exclusive only for ATT, leading Verizon and other caries no choice but to power the rise of #Android.
3/ Delayed the large screen phone for years, leading to the rise of Samsung/competitors.
. Chose to keep iPhone at high price (& profit), leading to the rise of Chinese phone makers like Huawei, Xiao Mi etc. They are really good now, many of my friends in China switched to Huawei

An almost universal way to theft or overwrite arbitrary files on #android is sharing activities. You can find them in AndroidManifest.xml. They handle android.intent.action.SEND. Use the PoC from… (ctrl+f "EXTRA_STREAM") and test 4 scenarios:
1. Send a Uri to an internal file using file:// scheme (direct or using a symlink)
2. Send a Uri to an internal file using a victim app's internal content provider
now grep private file contents on SD card
3. Send a Uri to your own file like explained in the article above (test _display_name and last path segment values to be vulnerable to path-traversal)
now run "ls -la dir | grep file_name" on /sdcard and /data/data/app

and also read, love that technique

Apropos of @thesundaytimes article, a few thoughts: firstly, as I tweeted 2 days ago 👇 & in stark contrast to the #transparency around other tech/data intitiatives - *cough* @NHSEngland #DataStore *cough* - the team published a blog on what it was doing:…
In this blog, the app team gave an explanation of the latest changes it had made - including a reduction in the #RiskThreshold, which took account of TWO factors: the inclusion of a measure of #infectiousness in the API *and* a new #distance algorithm...…
In case folks aren't aware, @Google & @Apple's #ExposureNotification API is quite frequently updated. As the #Android developer pages (and #nhsxCOVID18app's blog) say, the #infectiousness field was only added at v1.6; with functionality changing at 1.7 👇…

Aaand here it is..!!! 😱

After months of hard work with @jblanchefr, @ClipDropApp beta (AR Copy Paste) is now publicly available on #Android, #iOS, #macOS, and #Windows

🔥 🔥

Here's a thread of what you can already do with it ↓ 1/n

You can capture directly from your desktop with a screenshot and drag & drop to any other app (my favorite feature 🤩)

It works from/to virtually any application & websites: @figmadesign, @Photoshop, @Canva, @Pitch, @Powerpoint, @GoogleDocs...etc!

#ML #Augmented #DesktopOS
You can extract anything: objects, people, drawings, and text. The quality of the salient object detection, background removal, and text detection is now quite incredible 😳😲🤯

If you are interested in what data Android Apps push out to AppsFlyer, it might be a good idea to utilize @fridadotre to hook the 'af*' methods of class 'com.appsflyer.AFLogger'.

The screenshot shows an example of the app 'Bild'

The screenshot contains to events, related to outbound http requests.

1) The one starting with "url:", which contains a request URI
2) The next event starting with "data:", which contains the **unecrypted** content, which is sent out ("appsflyerkey" redacted)

If you inspect the corresponding HTTPS request, the actual data is encrypted (at least it should be).

So if you have to proof the the data from "AFLogger" is contained in the request, you have to decrypt the body content

I have been teaching #FullStack #WebDevelopment for over 5 years, and taking interviews for #FullStack developers for over 3 years now.
Here is a tiny thread 🧵 for aspiring #Developers 👇
1. 📜 Take up frontend first, easier to see results. Take up backend later

I personally learnt #NodeJS to support my #Android work, and later got into #Frontend. But if I only had to be a web developer, I'll redo it with frontned first.
2.💡 Focus on basics before frameworks. Framework ninjas with 0 in basics get thrown out in interviews

It is nothing short of depressing how many people cannot even start making a simple project with #react or #vue scaffolding. Don't be that guy.
DOM events, semantic HTML ftw!

You must love #Android deeplinks! They are the easiest way to get bounties
1. Decompile an app with jadx
2. Collect all deeplink handlers from AndroidManifest.xml, they look like <data android:scheme="airbnb" android:host="d"/>
3. Grep among all sources and resources a pattern from a handler, in this case, airbnb://d
4. You could find a lot of hardcoded urls like airbnb://d/openurl?url=https:// That's much simpler than learning app's sources
5. Now try to put your own domains with adb (adb shell am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d airbnb://d/openurl?url=http:// or on HTML pages (check out the H1 report below)

Oh look, someone is trying to sell a cryptocurrency account (@wag_crypto, permanent ID 327020861) that has a bunch of fake followers. The ones in the circled portion are part of a network we haven't previously encountered.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
We looked at the accounts followed by a sample of 200 of @wag_crypto's bogus followers. As it turns out, there are 22 accounts they all follow. One is @ARTEM_KLYUSHIN, and 12 of the others are dormant bots with tens of thousands of fake followers that also follow @ARTEM_KLYUSHIN.
We found 77064 accounts that we believe to be part of the network. All were created prior to 2014, follow far more accounts than they are followed by (including @ARTEM_KLYUSHIN), and have liked at most 4 tweets (most have liked none).

2 Tage sprach ich mit @rki_de, @SAPdach, @deutschetelekom & @BMG_Bund über #Android-Fehler bei der #CoronaWarnApp.
Wie oft haben die Herrschaften wohl von sich aus Fehler beim #iPhone eingeräumt?
Exakt. 0x!
Glückwunsch @tagesschau zum Coup. Wir wären heute gekommen.
Unser Fehler war, den Herstellern der App überhaupt blind zu glauben, dass alles in Ordnung sei.
Dabei konnten (Millionen!) #iPhone Nutzer jeden Tag sehen, dass etwas nicht stimmt.
Uhrzeit des ersten Öffnens und Aktualisierungszeit der Risiko-Ermittlung waren täglich IDENTISCH.
Dass die App-Hersteller jetzt Apple & Android bzw. den Smartphone-Herstellern die Schuld geben, halte ich für scheinheilig.
Sie wussten seit der Einführung der App ganz genau um die Probleme mit der Aktualisierung im Hintergrund (siehe Mail von SAP).
Kommuniziert hat man es kaum.

1/ Har tittat lite på #covid19apps, kan man fixa en för Sverige? Jag tror Schweiz app kan vara en bra grund. De satte en öppen standard, och både appar (#android, #ios) och server finns här:

Den öppna standarden är en variant på…
2/ Danmarks apps källkod kan jag inte hitta, och Tysklands hade inget sätt att rapportera sig smittad vad jag kunde se.

Schweiz app:

* Finns på engelska, bra nog för oss
* Har en sätt att rapportera smitta (med kod)
* Öppen källkod
3/ Så att "forka" schweiziska appen skulle kunna vara en bra börja. De har en server också. Men det är ändå kvalificerat arbete, t ex bara att få upp utvecklings- och buildmiljöerna.

Men tänk vad kul om vi plötsligt hade en app, vare sig FoHM vill eller inte!
