Zippidy without the Doo-dah!
Oh, I had the worst chatterbox friend exalting Android last night, I could not get a word in edge-wise because he would not stop talking even once.
He printed dozens of photos on our friend's ink jet printer to demonstrate his Android phone's superiority over my Windows phone and our friend's IPhone. My friend was amazed at the turn of events, which now includes him buying more ink jet cartridges and a stack of dozens of photos printed out of a used car for sale.
Point made, however oafishly, Android got prints... I finally just gave up arguing security. He doesn't keep any important files on his Android (but he does use it for online banking and purchasing online, quite a lot).
Printing from smart phones. It's a pain. It should not be a pain...
+1, and that balance has been skewed in one direction for quite long enough.
Printing from my phone is challenging. Workaround is to email to firstname.lastname@example.org for that brand if new enough hardware, but I haven't met anyone who thinks printing is not important and nearly no one can print from their phones easily - Android excluded here -
Printing from a phone should be an expectation and should be fulfilled. I guess it is a matter of printer drivers, but the workaround above is sufficient if not ubiquitous.
Seems an awful lot like opening someone's mail without asking... should already be illegal in my mind...
Android is not so safe...
"The certificate chain validation vulnerability, which Bluebox has dubbed Fake ID, was reported to Google in April and a patch was made available to device manufacturers, according to Forristal."
ISPs MitM people all the time. Some do it just at DNS, others do it at the TCP layer.
Talktalk, for example, will redirect you if you visit a non-existent domain to a talk-talk landing page, and most providers will block piracy sites (like piratebay.se) and child pornography sites at the TCP level so you can't access them.
In America it's even worse. Several ISPs have HTTP-mitmed pages to swap ad-ids on pages, inject additional ads, or covertly redirect requests (e.g. to amazon) to inject their referer into the page so they collect a commission every time one of their users purchase something on amazon.
Frankly, GCHQ is tame compared with what the private sector are already up to.
Can you name them for us or will that cause trouble for you?
