Your ceiling needs maintenance as pieces of it had fallen. Your roof tiles are detached and may not survive snow or rain much longer.

Instead, to your son, you speak about going for a vacation.

Whats the proper disciplinary response?

S7 has green vertical line on screen

Filed under: tech — zproxy @ 1:42 am

Whats that about? Screen glitching out on its own? Turn it off and then what?

On boot its there again. Line fades away if only blue is displayed.



The green line you are seeing is the digitizer….if it were pixels it would be in only one square on the screen. The layers between the lid and the digitizer will sometimes get stuck together in a spot that has been touched…once it is stuck together it forms the green lines all the way down the length of the screen
Playing some games where you have to repeatedly touch or hold the screen can add to this issue…there is no fix other than replacing the digitizer…sorry for the bad news

Open your phone keypad and type: *#0*#
After you have typed in the code, the service menu opens automatically. In the top row you will find three different tiles: Red, Green, Blue
Tap all three tiles (separately) and check on the display with the eye whether a pixel errors exist. A pixel error occurs as a dark spot.

Its a hardware fault with AMOLED panel. It needs replacement. Otherwise display goes dead after some time.

S7 audio jack loose

Filed under: tech — zproxy @ 11:19 pm

The S7 edge audio cable does not want to stay in. It still works if it isn’t touched. Device buyback value is 230EUR.

Drove a wire into it to clean it. Stopped working for a moment. Now somewhat operational. Yikes.

Flash For Browsers Discontinued

Filed under: tech — zproxy @ 8:19 pm

Back in 2007 flash was the new cool thing. The ultimate media element within HTML applications. A pre compiled and packaged module of an application. In 2011 flash was enabled on the new flagship Samsung Galaxy S1, with FM radio and sdcard. Today, Adobe confirmed, their one man support team still working on it, will no longer be needed as of 2020.

Cannot trust vaporware can we.

With the news today regarding Flash Player, I’m sure many of you have questions regarding AIR and its future roadmap. Let me start by saying that today’s announcement was not about AIR, and instead focuses entirely on Flash Player and the browser plugin environment. Adobe remains committed to AIR and we believe it continues to be a great desktop and mobile development platform.

Intel ME

Filed under: video — zproxy @ 1:53 am

First introduced in Intelâ(TM)s 965 Express Chipset Family, the Intel Management Engine (ME) is a separate computing environment physically located in the (G)MCH chip (for Core 2 family CPUs which is separate from the northbridge), or PCH chip replacing ICH(for Core i3/i5/i7 which is integrated with northbridge).

The ME consists of an individual processor core, code and data caches, a timer, and a secure internal bus to which additional devices are connected, including a cryptography engine, internal ROM and RAM, memory controllers, and a direct memory access (DMA) engine to access the host operating systemâ(TM)s memory as well as to reserve a region of protected external memory to supplement the MEâ(TM)s limited internal RAM. The ME also has network access with its own MAC address through the Intel Gigabit Ethernet Controller integrated in the southbridge (ICH or PCH).

The Intel Management Engine with its proprietary firmware has complete access to and control over the PC: it can power on or shut down the PC, read all open files, examine all running applications, track all keys pressed and mouse movements, and even capture or display images on the screen. And it has a network interface that is demonstrably insecure, which can allow an attacker on the network to inject rootkits that completely compromise the PC and can report to the attacker all activities performed on the PC.

Five or so years ago, Intel rolled out something horrible. Intelâ(TM)s Management Engine (ME) is a completely separate computing environment running on Intel chipsets that has access to everything. The ME has network access, access to the host operating system, memory, and cryptography engine. The ME can be used remotely even if the PC is powered off. If that sounds scary, it gets even worse: no one knows what the ME is doing, and we canâ(TM)t even look at the code. When â” not âifâ(TM) â” the ME is finally cracked open, every computer running on a recent Intel chip will have a huge security and privacy issue. Intelâ(TM)s Management Engine is the single most dangerous piece of computer hardware ever created.

This NDA is made between you (“You” or “Your”) and Oculus VR, LLC, located at 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025 (“Oculus”). Oculus desires to protect and preserve the confidential nature of information and materials that may be disclosed or made available to You by Oculus pursuant to the terms in this NDA.

  1. Definition. As used herein, “Confidential Information” shall mean any and all non-public information or materials that Oculus provides to You that it is either (i) identified in writing as confidential at the time of disclosure (or, if disclosed verbally, is identified as confidential in writing within thirty (30) days of the disclosure) or (b) would reasonably be understood, given the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding its disclosure, to be confidential. For avoidance of doubt, Confidential Information includes, but is not limited to: (i) information relating to Oculus’ business plans, analyses, forecasts, predictions or projections; intellectual property, software, hardware, prototypes, technology, technical information, business models, pricing, and pricing strategies; marketing ideas, data (including sales data), sales projections, financing plans, valuations, capitalization, budgets, and other financial information; and (ii) third-party information that Oculus is authorized to disclose to You.
  2. Obligations. Except as expressly permitted pursuant to this NDA, You agree to not disclose to any third party any Confidential Information. You further agree to not use any Confidential Information for any purpose other than in connection with your submission to the Oculus application store (“Limited Purpose”). You shall immediately notify Oculus upon the discovery of any loss or unauthorized use or disclosure of any Confidential Information. The obligations of this section shall continue in full force and effect with respect to any and all Confidential Information that remains confidential and not publicly known. This NDA shall not terminate except upon all Confidential Information becoming publicly known.
  3. Disclosures to Governmental Entities. You may disclose Confidential Information as required to comply with legal process or binding orders of governmental entities that have jurisdiction over You, provided that You (i) give reasonable notice (to the extent permitted by law) to Oculus to allow it to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy, (ii) disclose only such information as is required by the governmental entity, and (iii) use reasonable efforts to obtain confidential treatment for any Confidential Information so disclosed.
  4. Permitted Disclosure to Agents. You may disclose Confidential Information to Your employees, contractors, and agents, including but not limited to, auditors, accountants, legal counsel, and other professional advisors, (collectively “Agents”) who have a need to know such Confidential Information, but only to the extent so needed, provided further that such Agents are bound by confidentiality and non-disclosure obligations substantially similar to the confidentiality and non-disclosure obligations in this Agreement and that You will remain primarily responsible for any such Agents’ compliance with such terms and liable for any such Agents’ breach of such terms.
  5. Disclaimers. All Confidential Information is provided “AS IS,” without any warranty or guarantee of any kind.
  6. No License. You agree that neither this NDA nor the disclosure of any Confidential Information shall be construed as granting You any rights, express or implied by license or otherwise, to any Confidential Information, or to any patent, copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property or proprietary right based on such Confidential Information.
  7. Restrictions. You shall not make, have made, use, modify, improve, distribute, disclose, license, lease, sell or otherwise deal in any technology, product, service, or other item using, incorporating, or derived from any Confidential Information, nor make any filings or registrations based on the receipt or use of any Confidential Information. You further agree to not modify, reverse engineer, decompile, create other works from, or disassemble any software programs or applications contained in the Confidential Information.
  8. Limited Reproduction. Confidential Information shall not be reproduced in any form except to the extent necessary for the Limited Purpose. Any reproduction of any Confidential Information shall remain the property of Oculus and shall contain any and all confidential or proprietary notices or legends which appear on the original.
  9. Entire Agreement. This NDA is supplemental to any existing written, mutually executed agreements between the parties, and supersedes all oral agreements or understanding relating to its subject matter; provided, however, this NDA does not supersede, cancel, or amend any other non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement mutually signed by both You and Oculus (by ink or digital signatures) and the terms and conditions of such other NDA shall continue and be the complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter of such other NDA.
  10. Miscellaneous. This NDA shall be governed by the laws of California without reference to conflict of laws principles. In the event of a dispute relating to this Agreement, the parties hereby submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts located in San Mateo County, California and the United States federal court located in San Francisco County. You acknowledge that disclosure or use of Confidential Information in violation of this NDA could cause irreparable harm to Oculus for which monetary damages may be difficult to ascertain. You therefore agree that Oculus shall have the right, in addition to its other rights and remedies, to seek injunctive relief for any violation of this NDA. This NDA may not be amended without Oculus’ express written agreement and then only to the extent as amended in such writing. If a provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable under any applicable law, such invalid or unenforceable provision shall not affect any other provision of this NDA that can be given effect without the invalid provision. Further, any such invalid or unenforceable provision or portion thereof shall be deemed, without further action on the part of the parties hereto, modified, amended or limited to the extent necessary to render the same valid and enforceable. You will not assign or transfer any rights or obligations under this NDA. Any such assignment shall be void. Subject to the foregoing, this NDA shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective, permitted assigns. You shall not export any Confidential Information in any manner contrary to the export regulations of the United States.
