Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, televisions, automobiles and other electronics. Applications are usually developed in Java programming language using the Android software development kit (SDK), but other development environments are also available, including Delphi, Ruby and Visual Studio (using C++).

Consider the following:

The first case was brought in 2010, adjudicated in favor of Google in 2012, then reversed on appeal in favor of Oracle in 2014.
In 2016 a jury determined Google's actions were shielded by fair use which, again, was overturned on appeal in Oracle's favor two years later.

What I see is a court system of tech illiterate lawyers arguing the merits (or lack thereof) of software & open-source copyright/patent law to tech illiterate judges and juries unaware of the extent and ramifications of their rulings. This will likely continue, the back & forth, for another 8 years or until SCOTUS decides to take up copyright and patent cases of this kind. We can only hope we address the application of laws used to protect the invention of the cotton gin being applied to software.

tl;dr: I wouldn't count android as dead just yet

Warning Uber users!

And they are using this discovery to make a point that they are cleaning up their act. Interesting.  

Hackers stole the personal data of 57 million customers and drivers from Uber Technologies Inc., a massive breach that the company concealed for more than a year. This week, the ride-hailing firm ousted its chief security officer and one of his deputies for their roles in keeping the hack under wraps, which included a $100,000 payment to the attackers.

Warning: If your device uses WiFi, it's at risk!
News broke today about the Krack Attack, a new cyber threat that can decrypt and potentially view everything users are doing online. The Krack Attack preys on a weakness in WPA2 protocol. Hackers near the vulnerable devices (Android and Linux are at greatest risk) can retrieve sensitive user data and information.
Steps to Protect:
1. Apply patches as they become available. For phones and computers, the patches will come in the usual update format. For wifi routers, the manufacturer's website will have the patches.
2. Don't use public WiFi, especially for sharing or sending any sensitive information.
3. Double check that you are browsing with HTTPS. If you are unsure, install this plug-in to encrypt your communications with major websites and make your browsing more secure. https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere
4. Otherwise, use Ethernet.
