Apple will reportedly start assembling its premium iPhone models in India

>Apple will begin assembling its top-end iPhones in India through the local unit of Foxconn as early as 2019, the first time the Taiwanese contract manufacturer will have made the product in the country, according to a source familiar with the matter. Importantly, Foxconn will be assembling the most expensive models, such as devices in the flagship iPhone X family, the source said, potentially taking Apple’s business in India to a new level. The work will take place at Foxconn’s plant in Sriperumbudur town in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, this source added.

>Foxconn, which already makes phones for Xiaomi Corp, will invest 25 billion Indian rupees ($356 million) to expand the plant, including investment in iPhone production, Tamil Nadu’s Industries Minister M C Sampath told Reuters. The investment may create as many as 25,000 jobs, he added. The other source declined to be named as this person is not authorized to speak to the media. A third source confirmed Foxconn planned to assemble iPhones in India.

>The Hindu newspaper first reported on December 24 that the Foxconn plant would begin manufacturing various models of the iPhone. Reuters is first to report the size of the investment and the kind of phones to be assembled.

>It’s a move that would make a lot of sense for Apple. In recent years, the Indian government has put in place high tariffs on imported smartphones, while also offering cheaper import rates on smartphone parts in order to encourage manufacturers to build devices in India and drive the country’s manufacturing business. Avoiding those high tariffs is the reason Apple started building the iPhone SE and 6S in India. And while the older phones still haven’t been a runaway success, it seems Apple is willing to try a similar strategy with its more feature-filled high-end models.

Actually the outer earth. The southern lights (not known to many) are caused by mirage from different sun/moon-like systems from the old world continents. Don't know what's causing the northern lights but pretty much it's likely harboring a similar story. New evidence state that the earth was expanding. There had been quite recent studies about it from different continents and islands (not search indexed) while appearances of dungeons especially that Antarctica one recently, Kumbhalgarh Wall, and Padmanabhaswamy Temple (main door unlooted yet).

Plenty of unworthy people looted similar dungeons or took away the stuff from those who succeeded getting them and got themselves real curse similar to these https://io9.gizmodo.com/6-pieces-of-real-life-cursed-jewelry-that-could-destroy-1449245621.

I'm sure some "artistic author" out there probably published a story similar to what I'm saying for you to think "this guy is nuts" but that's just the power of precognitive disclosure. Earlier knowledge usually is much more favored so that's for you to decide (not really).

>The community is largely homogeneous with regard to gender, race, class and geographical extraction, being made up mainly by white male middle class European engineers.

>Help increase diversity: Over the next 5 years help promote diversity and collaborate in attracting contributors in order to get close to having the same proportion of men, women, and other genders as there are in the real world. Likewise promote KDE as a community all over the world to contribute to recruiting contributors so as to achieve a balanced representation of the largest number of ethnicities and nationalities as possible among contributors. At the moment, the community is composed mainly by white male Europeans. The goal is to add 5 percentile of minority contributors to the community every year over the next 5 years, without decreasing the number of contributors KDE already has. We can do this by carrying out actions that target under-represented genders, ethnicities and people with disabilities, so that we can tap undiscovered talent, receive input and help from a larger slice of the population, and better adapt KDE's software to the needs of wider selection of the population. We can take a page from Wikimedia's playbook on how to encourage under-represented groups to participate in KDE's community. Implement and enforce a strict CoC both for the community and each event against discrimination and harassment. Also, move main event (Akademy) away from Europe and encourage sprints and events in other places, like Asia, South America and Africa, as well as activities devise activities which will appeal to minorities.



If any of the KDE contributors comes here please stop this madness you don't need "diversity" you need people who wants to contribute and especially people who does it well.Skin color, race, sex is not important. If you force yourselves to have such goals instead of just wanting to just grow a better community then you'll have people who think that race, sex, nationality etc... is more important than the project/code.

If you contribute to a project that officially claims your contributions as less worthy because of your skin color then you legitimize such claims and at the same time degrade yourself. That is the whole point of them doing this, to claim being white is wrong and use the status and fame of the project to legitimize their claims. To participate you must to some extent accept that they can force their vile politics on you or atleast that is how it appears to other people. It's a old psychological trick to degrade you and make you feel powerless at same time. Keep your conscience and dignity, bro.

I just came across this article looking at Softpedia News the bored shill I am, and I came across this by pure coincidence.

Apparently Der Deutcsche Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz (The German Federal Office for Radiation Protection) and Statista conducted a test on the most used Androids currently to see which one is least likely to give you Noodle Zits. And the results nearly surprised me.

The CoC is *only* a symptom, dude. It's a sign that shit is deeply fucked-up, so run the fuck away. In the case of FreeBSD, they already had lots of drama and SJW shit going on with that freebsdslut. There was also the fact they couldn't agree with Matt Dillon to simplify the kernel, so he ended up forking his own project DragonflyBSD that now outperforms FreeBSD (and probably Linux too).

Does rebooting your pc clear your ram?

15 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



>Our findings show that even if the computer is switched off but not removed from the mains, the data are preserved.

>The observation that the computer’s volatile memory can maintain content for certain seconds even minutes after shut down of power supply, was recently confirmed by a team of researchers from the University of Princeton (Halderman et al., 2008).

>For example, a login password, stored in RAM even for a small period after system shutdown, could be retrieved by rebooting the system while using a custom kernel, or by the moving memory modules into another computer ready to copy all data stored in them (Halderman et al., 2008).

So unless a full memory flush is performed at shutdown, the data retention after warm boot (and possibly even after cold boot following a short power off duration) is good enough for bioluminescent melanin hoarders to bother extracting. Answers OP's question.


why not clear memory the same way you would clear a hard drive

make a ramfs

dd if=/dev/zero bs=4096 of={ramfs}

I don't know what happens when it maxes out your ram, probably starts swapping

if you have a swap maybe only write enough data to ramfs to max memory and a tiny bit of swap so the system doesn't totally crash.



If I remember correctly shutting down and waiting 15 minutes should be enough.


This will not clear memory of open applications/the operating system.



>This will not clear memory of open applications/the operating system.

of course this wouldn't clear any open applications, they are open and running.

this could be hooked into the shutdown sequence somewhere. most of the shit that people care to be wiped would be applications in userland, once that's all closed during a shutdown this could be run to clear memory




The Tails project have done work on this. The residual operating system complicates the task greatly, so the most effective approach is to have the final shutdown action of the OS be to kexec into a new single-purpose "kernel", dedicated to the function of wiping RAM then shutting down or rebooting. They tried modifying memtest86+ for this purpose, and it was pretty effective. I'm not sure where they are with it now:

I joined a hacker space recently thinking I would finally be able to learn all about electronics and realized I don't know what I actually want to actually do there. A few years ago when I was still in high school I wanted to be around like minded people interested in electronics and computers but never knew where to start (the closest I got to that was lurking and posting here and joining a robotics club where they didn't let me do or teach me anything). Now that I've joined this facility, I want to work on projects but tasks I thought would be simple seem to be too hard for me at my current skill level and I have no idea where to even start. What's worse is that projects that I can do at home seem meaningless because even if they seem fun in concept, it all seems pointless in the end while I learn nothing. For example I was planing on modifying a piratebox to try and host a custom forum and doom server off it's local connection for tenants at my friend's apartment I'm sure there's a better way of doing this but bear with me. While doing research on how I would achieve this I realized that nobody would actually use this and I would be doing a fuck ton of work to basically have normalfags talk to each other from their apartment rooms with their, more likely than not, uninteresting thoughts. This happens to me for basically every project I can do and I don't know what to do about it.

TL;DR I have access to a hackerspace. What should I do with it.

Why don't one of you budding nerds help me out. I have a game-changing idea for turning the internet on its head. You see, the current operating mode of the internet is actually backwards. People are herded onto centralized platforms like facebook, instagram and well, 8chan. Let's disrupt that. Allow me to go ahead and put forward a ground-breaking killer idea that I think has the momentum to be a millennium shaper. Instead of users sharing content on a central site, they share it on their own site. Imagine a world in which every internet user is his own facebook. Want to share? Just send a link. There's no need for a middle man. Harnessing this with power of block-chain technology on the backend and incentives to utilize a cryptocurrency for transactions and I think you've got a real winner. Good-bye ebay, amazon etc. As we boldly step into the IoT future, imagine the possibilities of having many devices as their own separate internets that talk to each other in an adhoc fashion, all coordinating with the blockchain ledger.

Thoughts? Shoot me back.

Why would you not miss that?



Hell yes. Now we have about 9 different websites that people all use. The internet started going really shit when myspace came about, that forced retards into concentrating on one domain, but still, there was the possibility to customize your page. Once facebook and blogger.com really took off though, most people just gave up trying to build something of their own and went with bland corporate templates hosted by someone else. The internet was actually becoming quite shit even before the iPhone took off.



Remember, you're just the code monkey. The big brains have to tackle the big concepts, like ideas and corporate strategy.
