Five Years of the Go Programming Language

dasacc22 Re:For those interested... (82 comments)

The OP mentioned Arduino. The front page provides an arduino sample and further down demonstrates uploading the firmware. This works with the beefier platforms. See also http://embd.kidoman.io/

But if you're talking about something running with 256kb of ram, then Go's current runtime isn't suitable. I've seen new runtime implementations for working with such systems though I don't recall the name of the project or links but there's nothing inherently preventative of Go for use on such systems given an appropriate runtime.

There's so many

and the list goes on and on with startups (http://blog.iron.io/2013/03/how-we-went-from-30-servers-to-2-go.html) and big names (https://github.com/dropbox/godropbox https://github.com/facebookgo) alike. Just google for more or explore github.

2600 Profiled: "A Print Magazine For Hackers"

dasacc22 the last line of the summary (71 comments)

paints such an interesting, far-from-the-truth picture of reality. Hackers being some personable people that point out flaws in current solutions to complex technological problems along with possible solutions instead of the OCD code warriors they likely tend to be for the sake of coding itself. People actively seek out flaws for the sake of flaws themselves, not some happenstance that they exist except in the most trivial issues.

"Police Detector" Monitors Emergency Radio Transmissions

dasacc22 Could be helpful (215 comments)

Many might think "hey i can avoid those pigs and break the law!" but if I could know how many and the concentration in an area, that might tell me there's something serious going down somewhere I'm heading that I should avoid.

Elon Musk Warns Against Unleashing Artificial Intelligence "Demon"

dasacc22 Re:Mo-tiv-a-tion (583 comments)

I think you hit the core issue but missed the point. Motivation, ambition, those are things you can work with. You may perhaps pay off the ambitious man, but the AI in question may want nothing at all. A cold killer and nothing more.

I don't think musk is far off, but the problem sure is and he's aware of that at some level with his out-there analogy.

British Army Looking For Gamers With Their Smart-Tanks

Now that's a headline.

Indeed it is, smart-tanks roaming the UK streets looking for gamers would certainly headline most anywhere.

Delivering Malicious Android Apps Hidden In Image Files

dasacc22 Re:PPA (113 comments)

your point? 3rd party checkbox in this scenario would be like a flag that determines whether your /etc/apt/sources.list file is read or discarded when determining software to install (given the standard ubuntu repos will always be an apt source).

Delivering Malicious Android Apps Hidden In Image Files

dasacc22 Re:Still have to install (113 comments)

that reads more like a statement rather than a question. Regardless of location source, whether google sanctioned or not, and if one has decided to install things from places other than google (arguably the 3rd party check box is the type of thing that makes android a google project versus pure OSS, or in the same respects is what differentiates chrome from chromium), etc, etc, when you install an application, you will be prompted. This prompt shares similarity with, for example, running a downloaded executable on windows and being prompted before actually running.

Having 3rd party sources disabled is not a safety net for avoiding issues, that's simply what makes android a google product.

Delivering Malicious Android Apps Hidden In Image Files

dasacc22 Re:Cute but useless (113 comments)

You don't have to give it permission, that's just part of what they made available. to quote TFA

In their testing, Android did show a permission request when the legitimate wrapper file tried to install the malicious APK, but the researchers say that this can be prevented by using DexClassLoader.

Doing that isn't much of a stretch. Many popular apps already use DexClassLoader just to get around limits during packaging.

I stand corrected after RTFA

Now that sounds plausible and like a real concern (that is being addressed).

Corporate Hackathons: The Fine Line Between Engaging and Exploiting

dasacc22 dasacc22 writes  |  about 2 years ago

dasacc22 (1830082) writes "Campbell is inviting developers to hack the kitchen with their recipe API, but wait! The API is private, so first you need to submit an idea. If they like the idea, you'll be given access to develop the app. If they like the app, they may give you some money. Otherwise, you can expect to have an app that connects to an API you no longer have access to. The author covers his recent experiences after engaging with Campbell Soup Global Head of Digital and Social, Adam Kmiec, to try and answer the following: "... my question to software developers out there who are thinking of devoting any real effort to a corporate hackathon like this is, “Why?”""
