voice communication, South Korean, New York

Open WhisperSystems >> Blog >> Free, Worldwide, Encrypted Phone Calls for iPhone -- At Open Whisper Systems, we want everyone to have access to advanced secure communication tools that are as easy and reliable to use as making a normal phone call or sending a normal text message.

Basecamp for iPad - Official App on the App Store on iTunes -- Opening the iTunes Store.If iTunes doesn't open, click the iTunes application icon in your Dock or on your Windows desktop.Progress Indicator

Why are some people so much luckier than others? -- James parked the car, went inside to visit his old friend, and Paul immediately decided to become James' agent, send him to acting school, and help get him a job. They also missed the equally giant message half way through the newspaper, Stop counting, tell the experimenter you have seen this and win $250.

Martha Stewart: Why I Love My Drone - TIME -- The view I was seeing on my iPad with the help of the drone would have otherwise been impossible without the use of a private plane, helicopter, or balloon. It is hard to imagine Andr Le Ntre laying out the exquisite landscape designs for Vaux-le-Vicomte, and later the magnificent Chteau de Versailles, with no high hill to stand on, no helicopter to fly in, and no drone to show him the complexities of the terrain. Martha StewartOne of my farm workers used his drone, a DJI Phantom flying camera, to capture amazing images of my 153-acre farm in Bedford, New York.

gold rush, San Francisco, In order

Terraform - HashiCorp -- The configuration is declarative, and Terraform automatically infers dependencies and uses this information to parallelize the creation of your infrastructure as much as possible.

App Rot Marco.org -- Full-time iOS indie developers people who make the majority of their income from sales of their apps, rather than consulting or other related work are increasingly rare. Clients were spending top dollar on app development in 2008 because they had to, as almost nobody could make apps. Its also a solid piece of evidence that shows that paid-up-front app sales are not a sustainable way to make money on the App Store.

Uber vs Car Ownership - Sam Altman -- My total annual spend on Caltrain is a few hundred dollars.*My cost per mile is probably lower than most peoples', but is somewhat neutralized by the higher depreciation which is partly due to battery pack degradation.*Uber may raise the rates on uberX, which could swing my particular calculation back in favor of ownership.*I used an average cost per mile for uberX of $2, which is a good average for me including time and minimum fares (it's much more on short trips, but a little under $1.50 on long trips).This of course leaves out the huge intangible of how much nicer it is not to drive and instead work/text/think/whatever.This calculation is why I think Uber is still undervalued.

How to take over the computer of any Java (or Clojure or Scala) developer - Onto ... -- Unless you take very careful steps that involve paying someone $10, JARs you download can be man-in-the-middled, and code you execute on your system can be replaced by malware. When dilettante sees a JAR coming from Maven Central it replaces the original JAR with a backdoored version that runs malicious code on the victims computer. Since the SHA1 hashes are sent over HTTP only, dilettante simply replaces any hashes it sees with the hash of the corresponding backdoored JAR. To backdoor a JAR, I can insert my own class by adding it to the zip archive:

Amazons Cloud Pricing War With Google And Microsoft Could Be Slowing Down AWS - ... -- The move came right after Google announced a price cut on its own services, to compete with the likes of Microsoft and Amazon.

Users who are primarily using Amazons cloud based services for storage are currently making the most out of these pricing wars on the cloud.

Mask Magazine -- Theres an inverse proportionate relationship where more people like the technical stuff, but people who like the political stuff like it more, theres just a lot less of them. When I write about Deleuze and programming, I know five people who will get super jazzed about it, but we are the five people. But when I write some stupid post about Ruby, a few thousand people read it. Ive had people ask me to silo off different kinds of content, that they only want to hear what I have to say on programming and stop talking about your politics. I will write lots of boring technical posts so that people subscribe and have to at least click through some Lefty propaganda they wouldnt otherwise read. And thats a good thing, but it also means that we have no way of communicating these situations to other people. When I tell people that I was hit by a sound canon by cops, they now know someone that it actually happened to. When they see those things happen on the news its not some abstract person, its me in a way. Its the last thing they ever wrote together, and its sort of their model of what philosophy is. Its not a love of concepts, its concept creation.
