    It’s good to hear that you are back guys. I listen to the podcast always, while working in the office or when I’m on the train.

    * Wasn’t there a news that Hand of Thieve for Linux is disconntinued?

    * Apple TouchID:
    * The CCC has the same opinion on TouchID¹. Now 40% of iPhone Users don’t use any type of authentication, so it’s great for them. (¹: Constanze Kurz talked about it on radio)
    * A password is still better, because in Germany the police can’t “ask” you for your password (no matter what crime). This rule does not apply to TouchID.

    * Use !g somewhere in the search and duckduckgo will redirect you to google. There are other “bangs”, just put !bang in the search and it will list all bangs. Like !gh (github), !v (youtube), !i (google image) and much more.

    I am not sure that is true. Yes, they can swipe your prints and use those to unlock the iPhone but there have also been cases now where a judge has ordered Beugehaft so that people (in one case a journalist I think) would give up passwords. Also, the police probably has other ways to get into your phone. An iPhone lockscreen is essentially a screensaver. I think when the state steps in, all bets are off with something like that.

    Another good show Fab. Welcome back.
    Anyways, these was a second song appended to the end of the (audio) podcast that wasn’t listed in the show notes (after Busy by Maria Rodes) at 2:10:38 After Dan says “We should stop this, and the beep”. The song is MC Hawking – Entropy. I found it on spikmun’s youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bueZoYhUlg

    I don’t know if you were intending to play it on another show, but it was fun and appropriate given the discussion about the entropy pool.

    It’s in the outtake section and not listed for that reason. I put it in there because I thought people might listen to the full song, instead of only some snippets low in the background with us talking over it.

    Finally found a block of time to listen — thanks for the pimpin’. I didn’t expect to get Dan’s full-blown cheesy North American movie trailer voice! Note to self, have a case of Jack Daniel’s shipped to that man!

    Just for completeness, since it has not been mentioned here — an errata: JBQ’s mention of flagship device does not refer to the Samsung Galaxy S4, but to the (2nd generation) Nexus 7.
