The Canary channel is excluded because, well, it seems hardly fair to poke holes in daily builds that are, by definition, not fit for public consumption.Interestingly, up to $15k is available to anyone who discovers critical...

  • Android's Fragmentation Also Happens to be it's Key Strength

    9 to 5 Google ^ | August 16, 2019 | Damien Wild
    When you hear “Android fragmentation,” we often conjure up the negatives, but there is more to the mobile OS forks than slightly slow software updates. Unlike Android, iOS has an end-to-end experience controlled by Apple from start to finish. That means that because of iOS, we sometimes wrongly see fragmentation as a dirty word. The thing is, it is actually quite the opposite on the Android side of the fence. In terms of experience and features, fragmentation within Android can, and should, be considered a very good thing. Note how I say “experience and features,” as there are some trade-offs...

    (CNN) — Mike Tyson isn't shy about his love for marijuana. On Monday's episode of his podcast, aptly named "Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson," the former heavyweight champion shared just how much he spends on the psychoactive drug. "What do we smoke a month?" he asked his co-host, former NFL player turned marijuana advocate Eben Britton. "Is it $40,000 a month?" "We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month," Britton said, referencing Tyson Ranch, the boxer's forthcoming 40-acre marijuana farm and "resort." "Is that crazy?" Tyson asked, though it seemed he already knew the answer. His guest, rapper...
