Dropbox and the Hack...Yeah you now have 3GB!!

Among the various cloud storage provider I like Dropbox for its drop-dead simpleness. Even more than what Box.net supports. And I use it for many purposes.
It has a free2GB scheme with a very competitive pricing. But even then how would it be to get some space free!!

Dropbox is without a doubt the most popular online file storage and desktop syncing solution. By default, users get 2GB of free space when they sign up for a Dropbox account. Considering the popularity and usefulness of Dropbox, I am pretty sure everyone here would wants to increase their storage space for free, if possible. The Dropbox referral system is a nice way of increasing your storage space for free, but the problem is that in this age and time nearly everyone owns a Dropbox account.



Last year, HTC announced that it would be offering up to 5GB of free space on Dropbox with its Sense 3.5 based handsets. This year, the company announced that it would be offering a whopping 25GB of free storage space on Dropbox for 2 years with its One series of handsets. So yeah, if you own a Sense 3.5/4.0 based phone from HTC, chances are you have more than enough free space on your Dropbox account.
Now, one XDA member – theos0o – has modified the Dropbox APK file that ships with Sense 3.5 handsets. The modified APK file is tricked into identifying non-HTC Android handsets as an HTC branded one, which then increases your Dropbox account storage space by 3GB for 12 months. Yeah, that last bit is a bit saddening, but even then 3GB of free space on Dropbox for 12 months for free is pretty damn useful.
So what are you waiting for? The modified Dropbox APK file can be downloaded from here. If you already have the Dropbox app installed on your handset, un-install it, and install the modified APK and sign in. You Dropbox account will then automatically get credited with the free 3GB of storage space. When done, you can uninstall the modified Dropbox APK file and install the latest version from the Android Market again.

HackRice 7.5: How "uFilter" was born

I have a thing for Hackathon. I am a procrastinator. A lazy and procrastinator graduate student, not a nice combination to have. But still when I see hundreds of sharp minds in a room scrabbling over idea, hungry to build and prototype their idea. Bring it to life, it finally pushes me to activity, makes me productive.  That is why I love Hackathon, that is why I love HackRice, our resident Hackathon of Rice University.

TL;DR: if you just want to try the extension, chrome version is here and Firefox version is here.
I have been participating at HackRice since 2014, when I think for the first time it was open for non-rice students, and have been participating ever since. What a roller coaster ride it has been, but that is a story for another day. HackRice 7.5 being the last one I will be able to attend at Rice, it was somewhat special and emotional for me.
HackRice 7.5 was a tad different form the other iterations. For starters it was the first time it was being held in Spring semester…

It all seemed for the fact that the homepage of the websites showed this image with a Chinese character
And though most of india's government portals and websites aren'…

LinuxCon China 2017: Trip Report

Linux Foundation held a combination of three events in China as part of their foray into Asia early this year. It was a big move for them since this was supposed to be the first time Linux Foundation would hold an event in Asia. I was invited to present a talk on Hardening IoT endpoints. The event was held in Beijing, and since I have never been to Beijing before I was pretty excited for the talk. However, it turned out the journey is pretty long and expensive. Much more than a student like me can hope to bear. Normally I represent Mozilla in such situations, but the topic of the talk was too much into security and not aligned much with the goals of Mozilla at that moment. Fortunately, Linux Foundation gave me a Scholarship to come and speak at LinuxCon China which enabled me to attend LinuxCon and the awesome team at Mozilla TechSpeakers including Michael Ellis and Havi helped me get ready for the talk.

The event was held at China National Convention Center. It's a beautiful and …
