Search - "nfc"
me: yo, im kinda low on cash right now, i should save some money and not do any iot projects this month
also me: yo, look at those nfc chips, i got an idea1
I forgot to git fetch, so I spent quite a while doing exactly WHAT MY TEAMMATE HAD DONE JUST HOURS AGO3
When im going home from school i spent about 45 minutes in a bus with free wifi.
Since im geek i always run checks on network that i enter. Well what a suprise. Slovakia fucking MHD (Buses) uses a device with linux 2.6.32 ffs. And Rpi with 4.4 or even less. Im seriusly thinking of running dirty cow script on that 2.6.32 device. This shit is just crazy.
Im waiting for my NFC reader to check the cards that we use to pay in the bus. Either it will just have the money stored on that card which i hope is not true. Or its just ID and server has the money in which case i can just buy NFC cards without manufacter block and just copy the card to that one and well have what ever card i want.
So if somebody is working at Slovakia MHD go and fucking secure your fucking crap ffs. Im not even talking about trains since those just use admin admin as login to router.6
Until now I've never thought of putting stickers on my laptop. Always preferred it to be clean, but with all those cool stickers on all your laptops... It made me wanna put as many stickers as possible and since devRant stickers looked lonely, I've decided to print some of my own. On other side I wantedthem to be useful for me so I grabbed a handful of NFC stickers and designed links and required shortcuts for my phones to run with them on touch. for example if I need a hotspot on my mobile to be activated quickly, I just put my phone against the WIFI sticker and bingo! And yes, devRant logo opens devRant app))5
Google Pay is about to support PayPal as virtual card (at least in Germany)
That's quite the finger to the local banks here
I like it12
No bloddy fucking way !
I cant be believe it !
I ported LineageOS to device that newer saw LineageOS support so port from scratch basically.
So i did that. The build was done in 1 day with tiny amount of patches on top of what was in repos already. Basically patches only to build it.
I got the zip and all that jam but i put it away since i believed that it woudlnt boot as its first build ever of LineageOS for this device.
Today i had to factory reset my device since AOSP10 fucked up data partition so i thought that maybe i could flash lineage just to see where we stand.
I flash it.
I see sony screen.
Wait what ?
LineageOS boot anim shows up.
Does the pass 3 times and shows me the final image of boot animation basically telling me it booted up.
OK in my head i was like OK but the UI wont load. There is no way.
I look away at my friend we have been talking with while this happened.
I look at device and see the device fully booted to LineageOS intro screen.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK ? HOW? WHY? WHAT ?
(I totally wasnt screaming like a girl and dancing in the room when this happened. NOOO)
We were joking with the devs on different devices that it would be fun if the first build booted up since it required only 2 patches to build properly.
When i told them that the first ever build booted up they were going nuts as i was.
To be clear.
Porting usually takes hours of debugging to even get it to boot up.
Sureee not everything works as is expected. So whats broken ?
Camera, Bluetooth, NFC, Audio (Already building a fix), flashlight.
So there is fair bit of debugging still left but once audio is working then basic functions basically work and i can use the phone daily without trouble and as backup i have my old phone until rest is fixed.
This is the best day of the year i must say.8
Fuck you apple, and fuck your god damn shitty documentation.
Working with NFC enabled passes, their documentation says "payload max is 64 bytes"
What they ACTUALLY fucking mean is 64 ascii characters.
Also, the way they handle date time formats is fucked. They say they support W3C formats (iso) but what they actually mean is, they support a half assed version of a subset of it.
I told their chief engineer over a phone call and his response;
"I agree, our documentation is lacking"... HOW ABOUT YOU FUCKING UPDATE IT!
Also, how they handle json is just bad.7
Me: Ok time to save money, have a trip to melbourne coming up, save for a house, car and wedding... Brilliant...
Internet: Oh hey you know how you wanted a smartwatch that was not sporty looking and has NFC, heres the Ticwatch C2!
Me: I hate my life...
Internet: also heres some of the programming theory books you wanted on sale!
Me: starts tying noose
Why must saving money be so bloody hard when everything you've wanted just pops up .-.3
Anybody tried Project Fugu the new browser api's from google which let's progressive webapps access the users filesystem, contacts, computer vision, nfc, geo fencing and launch other apps?
Is there a specific reason your company is called 'Hexical Labs'? If so, could you share the story of where it comes from?2
The program 'x' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt install x.
Wow, thanks! I didn't know! I've always wanted to know how to install programs with apt.10
I just got my first debit card, I'm super excited about it, but there is something inside me wanting to use an NFC writer app to write to the cards internal NFC chip
Client: Let's get our car online using the phone as the router!
Me: let's do that!
Client: Can we use NFC as the protocol?
Me: Probably, but just to automate the connection..
Client: No we should use NFC for the entire session!
Client: Why not? It's new, it's happening, bosses will be excited!
Me: You do know what the N in NFC stands for right!
Me: -_- thinking "I hope you lose your genitals to a horrible case of blue waffles.."8
I really feel like coding right now, but I don't have time. Problem is: when I do have time and I have to code I probably don't want to anymore.
Not a rant, but I think it's really cool, so I just wanted to share this with you guys. I recently went to a small symposium by an alumnus of my university. He uses the program Mandelbulb3d to explore the wondrous world of fractals. He's recently started to apply Neural Style Transfer to fractals. His website is julius-horsthuis.com.
↓ this is 1 (composite) formula, by the way1
So I started to hear a noise on my headphones which I didn't know where it was coming from. It wasn't much of a noise but a regular sequence of "beeps", seemed like 8bit sfx. So I started moving my cable around and it turns out that if I put the headphone's cable under my phone at a specific spot I can hear the noise. Seems like some kind of interference, so the first thing that I thought of is the NFC sensor. So I remembered that an app would detect my credit card (which has NFC) if it was close to the back of my phone, so I put on my headphones and put the cable between the phone and the credit card and voila, the sound changes. It only works if the headphones are be plugged in though.
Idk why but it think this is really cool. Just wanted to share :)2
I was on the train and a woman came aboard. The only available seat was next to me. She takes this huge laptop out of her bag. While I observed this, I thought: she's going to code. She logged in and.. GitLab! She was writing R code.
Oh boy the schools in the Netherlands have began again, the amount of people in the train is insane... (Also one of my biggest annoyances is) the way how people pile on top of the check-in checkout poles... They try to do it as fast as possible, but because it is an unstructured pile of garbage... It takes way too long...
Is it so hard to stand in a line and just keep your card STIL AND CORRECTLY INFRONT OF THE NFC READER!?
apparently it is because I see people slamming their wallets against it, moving it around wildly and keeping up the line being Angry why the reader can't detect their card... In their wallet, probably between multiple other NFC cards within a second (BECAUSE YOU KEEP MOVING IT FROM THE READER TO THE FUCKING SCREEN!!! WTF)2
So it's a sad day that I say goodbye to my moto 360 gen 2, purchased a ticwatch C2 and here's hoping the OLED screen and NFC capabilities are worth giving up my favourite watch...13
I was just begged to play 30 minutes of monopoly with my family
With all those versions of monopoly I'll have to be more precice, it's the worst of them all
It's monopoly fucking zapped, you need an ios device to play it, it's been developed for the iPhone 4 and maybe a tablet because they didn't even update it for current phones, not even iPhone 5
The credit cards are a fucking joke, they work by touching certain parts of the touchscreen and don't work 85% of the time you try to use them, 5% of the time just choosing the wrong person
At least your relieved when 10% chance kicks in where it works for once
Instead they could developed for Android and used nfc tags making it reliable and fun, no it has to be shitty, cheap and frustrating
Like seriously, they could've also used qr codes instead, or just have fucking buttons on the screen because you need the fucking ios app anyway
The minigames are at least a bit of thought, but don't really make sense either
Money doesn't seem to matter, sometimes paying another player when it shouldve been pay to the bank (yeah, not only the credit cards are fucked, the whole money system is shit)
It's a fucking abomination of a game
Halfway through I searched for the company name on the board...
ITS FUCKING HASBRO, OF COURSE IT'S FUCKING HASBRO THAT FUCKING PEACE OF SHIT FUCKING COMPANY THAT DESERVES TO ROT IN HELL HAVING CREDIT CARDS STUFFED UP THEIR FUCKING ASSES7
Okay, so yesterday was crazy. So crazy, in fact, that I'm not even typing this on my phone. I'm typing it on an LG G4.
So, I took an Uber out to a Sprint store I'd been told did repairs. My phone's vibrator was broken. So, basically I thought just like that R&M episode "20 minutes adventure in and out" - only to find out they'd need to wipe my goddamn phone, and then send it to Texas. I now have to wait 6 days for my phone lmfao.
So, in the meantime, they took an hour to get me this G4 which makes me miss all the finer things in life - I miss my USB-C and not having to give a damn about how I plug it in and I miss my fingerprint reader (I know, I'm a lazy fuck with first-world problems. I don't care to hear about how fucking stupid I am for either of those thoughts, STFU). Also the G4 is prone to hardware failures, so they said they weren't too happy about giving me this, but it's the only one with NFC.
So in the middle of setup, the Sprint store's power went out. FUUUUUUCK. The phone was pretty much at 5% battery and was being slow as hell, so you can just about imagine the irritation me and this guy had when the phone died in the middle of setup.
The next thing is an unrelated story, but I'm sure some of you older guys here will love this. I was at a place called Triangle Park last night. I go there for burgers, but they also have a bar. Sometimes I get sent to the bar and the bartender gets me my food. So last night I went to pick the food up from the bar for takeout.
The bartender must've had an accident and messed something up, so she told me to sit at the bar. I thought it was obvious I was only 19, so I barely sat. I'm literally not old enough to sit at the bar, even though when I was younger my dad and his friends used to let me sit with them because I had a history of saying stupid shit that made his friends laugh. Nonetheless, I sat with my ass hanging off the edge because I knew it was wrong :/
She comes back and asks what type of drink I want. I had to tell her that I was 19. I wasn't gonna sit here and lie because I'm pretty sure she could've lost her job for serving a minor. I exited and waited in the lobby.
But are we at the point where 19-year-olds look like 25-year-olds? I don't want to think about this because it means I'm getting older. That's a lot to take in. Later in the night it was still gnawing at my gut.
Yesterday was one hella day man.5
I hacked port authority administration computers using enable Bluetooth flip phone ,then I changed background pic in all computers on network, and put an mp3 song on startup folder, turn volume to the max, gues the rest, they were using window xp ,and told their manager she gave me a job on spot , and was very interested, and that where my journey begun
Mobvoi just launched the new Ticwatch S2/E2. Currently have the S1.
This FAQ page has me scratching my head. Guess their documentation team wrote part of this before they decided to pull the NFC feature?
If so, that's something in common with my company 🤣1
I did it. I switched from Android to iPhone. Why? Because they came out with a new UI and features with the iPhone X and it’s been 3 years since I’ve owned an iPhone; I don’t like to be left out of new tech.
I already don’t care for it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautifully designed phone. The clicks, haptic, and general feel of the phone is great and so is the X’s different UI. But the features? I feel like I’ve gone backwards a few years from where my Galaxy S8 got me. Facial recognition is actually great, but I could have had that with my GS8, but I preferred iris scan.
I forgot my wallet at home and wanted to buy a drink from the drug store by my work. I usually use Samsung pay which uses MFC & NFC so I can just use it with any magnetic reader; no says iPhone. I try to unlock my phone in the car, but there’s not trusted device option like in Android, so I unsafely struggle. I want to sign into my gyms WiFi, but no sign in option pops up like in Android; I’ve got to pull up safari.
I fucking love my Apple Watch though.
It’s definitely better than the Android watches that I’ve tried, and that might keep my with an iPhone much ch longer than I want until a better Android watch comes out.
I just think it’s good not to fanboy anything. Be open, find all the pros and cons.3
Was on a Festival last Weekend, and we got some NFC tags to take payments on the Festivalsight
Now im codeing a NFC based TimeTracking App, useing this NFC Tag
Just learned the military regulations probably won't prevent me from getting an NFC implant because it's invisible so they don't give a damn!
Oh the adventures and hacking that can be! Think I'm gonna do it.16
CS teacher: "I want you to do this project using DSDM. Every member needs to be appointed a role that is best suited to their abilities."
He has never heard of Agile.1
I'm getting a NFC tag implanted in my hand in Friday by the founder of dangerousthings.com
I'm a little nervous3
Just force rebooted a NFC debit Card Reader because my sports Card was behind it haha, dang they boot fast
Have any of you tried cloning NFC cards? I really want to try it out. Any advice or guidelines would be much appreciated.7
Is there anyway to copy any nfc chip and replicate its id through your mobile, i have the nfc retag pro app and wonder if i can do so through it?1
