- The EFF calls out Google for privacy issues in the EDU sector but the school districts need educated, too
Chromebooks for education is an excellent program, but it looks like the educators need a little more teaching when it comes to getting started.
The EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) has renewed their charge against Google, Microsoft, and Apple for the way student privacy is handled in their respective educational markets. They say “Students and their families are backed into a corner.”
As students across the United States are handed school-issued laptops and signed up for educational cloud services, the way the educational system treats the privacy of students is undergoing profound changes—often without their parents’ notice or consent, and usually without a real choice to opt out of privacy-invading technology.
We should want the EFF to act as a watchdog when it comes to our privacy. Or our kids’ privacy.
This is a serious problem, and we should want the EFF to keep pushing and pushing until they can’t find anything to push. With about three-quarters of the educat…

- Deals of the century: These three temporarily free $400 Android apps will change your lives
Remember those crazy expensive apps that only existed for you to show off how rich you are to your friends (and to make developers some quick cash from chumps)?

PENITAX, a Slovakia-based ‘developer,’ has just made all three of his lackluster $399.99 apps free for a limited time on the Play Store.

- Make the Bixby button great again: BixRemap will open Google Now instead
If Bixby isn’t your thing, here’s how to replace it with Google Now.
The Galaxy S8 has been mostly well received by everyone. Blogger and users who have scored their phones already are saying really good things, and even the naysayers are impressed with the hardware. It just seems like a damn good phone so far. But there is one thing a lot of folks are saying they would like to change: The Bixby button.
Bixby seems like a cool robot friend AI thing. Unless you’re on Verizon or in Europe, that is. I won’t dismiss it outright until I’ve tried it long enough to know if I like it or not.
But other people feel differently and want the convenience and familiarity that comes with Google Now and hate that the button is hard-programmed to open Bixby when pressed. Earlier methods to bypass this have been patched by Samsung as they “exploited” services that they didn’t need to access in order to gain control over the button. But because Android developers are crafty and awesome, we have a ne…
