@joshelman I'm in your neck of the woods every few months. Will let you know when I'll be down next.@joshelman well, when you put it that way, fair point. :)@joshelman thesis is targeted display ads bigger digital business than search. * head nod*. Google's skill building social apps not relevant@joshelman though I agree with the thesis of the blog post, I thought the argument was weak especially that line which I think is superbad@gummadi it's worked out well for Google and Facebook@gummadi http://t.co/DJ7H3m2OK9 gives them more data about users ID'd by phone. Crashlytics is bait to get you into MoPub. Like a F2P game@gummadi their business is selling audiences to advertisers by showing. Those two definitely help that business.Confused about tweets whether devs should trust Twitter now. @Flight announcements align with their biz model versus enabling competing appsThe Avengers Age of Ultron trailer is intense and amazing. #Hulkbuster #Quicksilver #Ultron - http://t.co/QlckPeWGjp #NoStrings`Twitter built Facebook Connect for signing in with your phone number.

Irony of GamerGate is that by harassing @femfreq they've made her a national celebrity instead of niche video blog http://t.co/B6JyiRbd0RSnapchat will evolve product to be more ad friendly.

Retweeted by Dare Obasanjo@pierosierra 1st tweet in 2 years?

Samsung Schadenfreude And The Fall Of The Church Of Market Share - http://t.co/FkmD4ctuFa <= epic post on how wrong pundits were on Apple@owenthomas @sriramk @gotwalt @joshelman I'm done feeding your trolling. I mistook you for a journalist, forgot who I was talking to.@owenthomas @sriramk @gotwalt @joshelman you clearly dont understand the technology and just want to bash Snapchat.I regret engaging in this@sriramk @gotwalt @owenthomas @joshelman all Snapchat API reverse engineering has been based on decompiling the binary@owenthomas @gotwalt @joshelman "Can SSL pinning be bypassed by cracking the app?Yes it can" <-guess it doesn't help protecting Snapchat API@owenthomas @gotwalt @joshelman LOL. The very 1st FAQ question on that post confirms you have no idea what you are talking about@sriramk @joshelman that's the primary issue. Secondary is that @owenthomas thinks there is some technical way to keep the promise.@owenthomas @joshelman at this point it sounds like u r willfully misunderstanding the problem to blame Snapchat. Go ahead and enjoy urself@owenthomas @joshelman that is a misconception. There is no technical way to prevent a rogue app from pretending it's the Snapchat app.@owenthomas @joshelman there's nothing technologically Snapchat can do about it.They can sic lawyers on devs is all. It's DRM all over again@owenthomas @joshelman 3rd parties can reverse engineer any API that runs on devices they own. Blame Snapchat for implying photos unsaveable@owenthomas @joshelman you're picking on Snapchat because blaming big companies is more newsworthy than blaming users or 3rd part devs@owenthomas @joshelman an official API for saving photos is against Snapchat's use case and would never happen. SnapSaved would still exist@owenthomas @joshelman what's asked in article is impossible. Snapchat cannot prevent saving photos, if it can be viewed it can be savedsomeone should let @verge know it is technically impossible to secure a protocol when app runs on the user's device http://t.co/axEfGmHvzB@owenthomas @RWW the victims are the people whose photos were leaked who SENT them to people using http://t.co/Ed1hEO82Tc behind their backs
