Uber fixes bug that exposed third-party app secrets

Uber has fixed a bug that allowed access to the secret developer tokens of any app that integrated with the ride-sharing service, according to the security researchers who discovered the flaw.

A short trip to India showed me just how badly Apple is screwing up in the world's biggest democracy

Apple has failed to crack the Indian smartphone market, languishing behind Chinese brands with less than a 2% share of the market. During a family visit to India, I noticed Apple doesn't have much retail or advertising presence and that it mostly advertises the "cheaper" iPhone XR. The iPhone XR is still too expensive for most Indians, and iPhones overall cost more to buy in India than in other countries. CEO Tim Cook seems to be trying to replicate Apple's Chinese strategy in India, which has...

“Anybody can do an MBA. Not everybody can become a cartoonist”: the sage advice that turned Satish Acharya into a 24×7 cartoonist in the social media era

Although the Mysore-born R.K. Laxman is the best known of them all, it is Kerala that has produced more political cartoonists in the English language: P. Shankar Pillai, O.V. Vijayan, Abu Abraham, Kutty, Unny, Ravi Shankar, Ajit Ninan et al. In recent years, Satish Acharya has joined his Kannadiga torch-bearer as a political cartoonist of promise, his works first adorning the Bombay afternoon paper, Mid-Day, and now a number of newspapers and websites across the country.

I regret that Balaji Viswanathan (of Bangalore) is not a liberal. Cf. his attack on Naseeruddin Shah

Balaji Viswanathan is royalty on Quora with over 300 million views of his answers. Of course, he is also prolific on Quora, responding to over 4000 answers. My 240 (generally very quick, without much editing) answers are like “dabbling” in comparison. Balaji came over with his father in August 2016 to meet me in Bangalore […]

Indian state government leaks thousands of Aadhaar numbers

A lapse in security has led to the leaking of over a hundred thousand Aadhaar numbers, TechCrunch can reveal. One of the web systems used to record attendance of government workers for the Indian state of Jharkhand was left exposed and without a password as far back as 2014, allowing anyone access to names, job titles, and partial phone numbers on 166,000 workers as of the time of writing. But the photo on each record page used the file name as that worker’s Aadhaar number, a confidential 12-dig...

In 1976, George Fernandes plotted to bomb the Vidhana Soudha to warn Indira Gandhi. Today, his friends would have called him ‘anti-national’ and put him in the ‘tukde-tukde’ gang.

Before he was crowned “giant-killer” at age 37 in Bombay, for defeating S.K. Patil…. Before he set up a highly profitable co-operative bank for taxi-drivers…. Before he moved on to Bihar and the Samata Party… Before the firebrand landed in the arms of the BJP, and got embroiled in “Coffin Gate”, George Fernandes was the original Kannadiga rebel star, with a stellar role during Indira Gandhi‘s Emergency. The daring plot included, among other things, blowing up the Vidhana Soudha—acts which in tod...
