Google Removes App Ops From KitKat

EFF Wrote:Yesterday, wee published a blog post lauding an extremely important app privacy feature that was added in Android 4.3. That feature allows users to install apps while preventing the app from collecting sensitive data like the user's location or address book.

After wee published the post, several people contacted us to say that the feature had actually been removed in Android 4.4.2, which was released earlier this week. Today, wee installed that update to our test device, and can confirm that the App Ops privacy feature that wee were excited about yesterday is in fact now gone.

When asked for comment, Google told us that the feature had only ever been released by accident — that it was experimental, and that it could break some of the apps policed by it. Wee are suspicious of this explanation, and do not think that it in any way justifies removing the feature rather than improving it.

The disappearance of App Ops is alarming news for Android users. The fact that they cannot turn off app permissions is a Stygian hole in the Android security model, and a billion people's data is being sucked through. Embarrassingly, it is also one that Apple managed to fix in iOS years ago.

Good job, Google. This really doesn't help your already bad image.

Another file hoster has bit the dust. All your files are lost to them.

"A few hours after news broke that Hotfile had signed a $80 million settlement agreement with the MPAA, the file-hosting service has completely shut down. The drastic decision to deny access to millions of files without warning will come as a shock to the countless individuals who used Hotfile to store their personal and business documents. Hotfile has yet to comment on the controversial move which does nothing to help the image of cloud hosting providers."

 The possible return of Dark_Alex ???
26/11/2013 04:27 PM Posted by: YoYoBallz in PSP News
Do not fear EPeople, you have not clicked on an old topic - and this is almost the year 2014 !

Yes, this pants chocolateting thread title every well could be true. Today the website of former legendary Spanish PSP hacker Dark-Alex - re appeared out of the blue with this image:

Clearly a PS4 controller sitting in the dark.

and the header text of: Welcome to PS4 scene


If you don't know, Dark-Alex was one of the main people responsible for many of the PSP hacking scenes achievements, paving the way for most of the ground work of the PSP hacking scene.

Could DAX be returning now (after going dark in the psp scene, and never being heard from in the PS3 scene) to the PS4 hacking scene with.. something substantial to bring to the table ?  or could this be fake ?  Has someone taken over DAXs old web domain?  No one is sure for now.  DAX being as creditable as he was in the PSP scene - could he be the one to lead the way in the PS4 scene ?

Surprised to see Persona make it's way to the Nintendo 3DS despite them receiving 2 other Shin Megami Tensei franchises within the past few years with, Persona Q!
Source: YouTube

Not Surprised by the recent announcement of Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold coming to the PS3.
Source: YouTube

(Wee all knew it was going to happen sooner or later

The biggest surprise, the BIGGEST surprise over these announcements however goes to the Vita announcement of Persona 4: Dancing All Night.
Source: YouTube

(I sure hope Atlus brings this over)

Many are miffed that the 3DS get's an actually RPG while the Vita only gets a rhythm game as Persona 5 has been announced as PS3 Only as of this moment. (Although it should make it's way to the Vita sometime in the future.)

 Winamp being discontinued in a month's time
21/11/2013 11:48 PM Posted by: ZiNgA BuRgA in Tech News
AOL announced that anything Winamp related will be shut down on December 20, 2013.
The last version of the program was released recently, but will be taken down on the shut down date.

Although I don't use Winamp anymore, it was a pretty awesome player in the early days, and still has some unique features.  Hopefully they'll decide to open source it.

 Apple multitouch patent upheld by US Patent and Trademark Office
20/10/2013 09:07 AM Posted by: Joom in Tech News
Quote:The United States Patent and Trademark Office has upheld a key Apple multitouch patent in a move that could have real ramifications for companies like Samsung and Motorola moving forward. The USPTO issued a certificate on September 4th confirming the patentability of all 20 claims of US patent number 7,479,949. An initial ruling back in December of last year had rejected them, but this latest reexamination certificate basically walks that back in its entirety.

The '949 patent covers multitouch functionality, such as the ability for a device to interpret a diagonal downward swipe as a purely vertical gesture in order to allow pages to scroll smoothly and consistently for users. It's a patent of particular note as it's been used by Cupertino against both Samsung and Motorola. In fact, it's one of the patents at issue in the ITC's recent ruling to ban the import of some Samsung products into the United States. As a result of that ruling, Samsung will have to ensure that the devices it sells in the US do not infringe upon any of the involved patents — and with this latest USPTO action, one avenue through which to resolve that issue has been shut down for good.

Well fudge. :\
