North America has a problem -- we don't know how to discuss sexual crimes with any level-headedness.  We lump them all into one basket and use loaded names like 'paedophile' and move on.  Here's one of many excellent examples of why we need more discourse:

She harmed no children, had no intent to harm children, and there's nothing society has to fear from her, but she's on the sex offender's registry now.  So are kids who had consensual sex under age all over the US.  We are destroying peoples' lives.

What's different on the new +Sony Xperia Z4 vs the Z3?  Not much, but a substantial change it is: 
* Snapdragon 810 MSM8994, previously 801 8974-AC  
* 8-core, 2000 MHz A57 + A53 64 bit vs the old Quad core 2500 MHz Krait 400  
* Also the new Adreno 430 from the old Adreno 330
Who knows if anything is using this much added processor speed effectively, but I'm sure it will be smooth like butter.

Reading the afterward of Neptune Crossing, an excellent #scifi book I just completed, I was rewarded with proof of what I already knew -- this author did his research.
"For scientific and technical advice [...], I gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Dr. Robert H Brown of NASA's [JPL]."

I suppose I should pick up the next in the series now.

Here's a real security story for you: government agencies put some serious effort into reverse-engineering AV software on your PC to bypass it.  That's right, unlike those hackers who publish their findings and allow software to be improved, the government tries to find bugs and exploit them, leaving them there for everyone else too.

To quote the article, "Amnesty International report describes ‘shocking lack of fundamental respect for the sanctity of human life’ as nine states have no laws to deal with police force."

No respect for the sanctity of human life?  Seems like a pretty fundamental concept to me.

I want to say something like 'hangout my daughter when are you getting home?' or 'message my wife I'm on my way with hangouts' and have it actually work instead of needing to use SMS for convenience.

An interesting story about the ease of legally (in the US) creating one's own ghost gun.  How do you feel about unserialized weapons, especially powerful ones like this?  

The modern DIY age means not being able to regulate many things that required specialized tools in the past; what should we be doing about it?

"Defense Distributed has already sold more than a thousand of their gun-making boxes, each one a tiny, easy-to-use, anarchic rifle factory."

If you're using Hola VPN, stop, uninstall, run far away.
In fact, unless you're sure you know what you're doing, you probably shouldn't be running any third party VPN software on your machine -- but Hola seems to have been exposed as a known bad provider: http://www.dailydot.com/technology/hola-vpn-security/

Importantly, Amazon is shipping to #Canada for just six dollars. That makes the 360 half price compared to buying it up here.
#pricing #market

Moto 360 is also $149 on Amazon if you're interested and rather buy at Amazon.....hopefully mine will come from +Motorola Mobility sooner than later. 
UPDATE 
Looks like the price went up on Amazon to $189 but Motorola still has it for $149___Importantly, Amazon is shipping to #Canada for just six dollars. That makes the 360 half price compared to buying it up here.
