How to Help Sovryn Tech for FREE…No, Really…

DISCLAIMER: The ZOG Blog is the part of this site where Dr. Brian Sovryn can talk about anything. From pop culture, to philosophy, to just sharing updates with what’s going on at Zomia Offline Games and with other projects. First off, total thanks to everyone that has donated via Bitcoin and PayPal in the past and the present (you can

Mark Zuckerberg is Insane: He Covers His Webcam and Headphone Jack with Tape

I generally hate blog posts that are written about some dumbass tweet. It’s usually a sign that a news organization has nothing important to talk about since they are doing clickbait headlines around something someone said in 140 characters or less. But this tweet that I’m about to share with you is genuine news. This tweet coming from a guy

Google Introduces Non-Innovative Device-Specific 2FA to Your Account

I love 2-factor authentication. I wish every account I had allowed for its use. 2-factor authentication (or “2FA”) is one of the best ways to keep your accounts secure. Google has long supported that feature, but it was generally through the use of either a code sent via SMS, or using a specific app to generate a 2nd-factor code and

Ho…ly…Fuck…Meet the KiloCore: A 1000-core Processor

You read that title right: The computer scientists at UC Davis have created the world’s first 1,000-core processor, called KiloCore. Containing 621 million transistors, the processor can handle 1.78 trillion instructions per second. Straight up, that’s ridiculous. In a good way, mind you. Bevan Baas, professor of electrical and computer engineering at UC Davis, led the team behind the chip

Jide and Remix OS Are Getting Serious with New Hardware

Jide’s Remix OS, the open-source version of Android that’s been reconfigured into a desktop-style operating system (and which I’ve written about at the Dark Android Project before), seems to be on a real roll, as late. While it has generally released rather underwhelming hardware to accompany Remix OS, Jide has also done right by releasing Remix OS for PC’s, much

Apple’s WWDC 2016: What It All Really Says

Today was what, years ago, used to be one of the most exciting times of the year: Apple’s World Wide Developer Conferece 2016, or WWDC. Years ago, this used to be the event where new hardware would get announced, and new software would also take center stage. It was “must see” streamed video (often through the Quicktime client, whether you

BLOCKS Modular Smartwatch: Another Glimpse at the Future

My desire for–and prediction of–the coming “smartwatch revolution” that will take over smartphones entirely is not new to listeners of my tech podcast, Sovryn Tech, or readers here at the Dark Android Project. As I’ve said, I think even Microsoft is getting in on the game way ahead of schedule to hopefully not miss out on the next tech category

Paranoid Android is Back…for the Properly Paranoid

I spend a lot of time talking about CyanogenMod and AOSP (and some others) at the Dark Android Project as being alternative operating systems to run on your Android phone (and still run all your apps, of course), but I oft neglect one of the other Android-compatible/reconfigured operating systems: AOSPA…or more commonly known as “Paranoid Android“. Paranoid Android has been

Daydream-ready Virtual Reality on the Cheap: The ZTE Axon 7

At the Dark Android Project, I’ve talked about the coming advancements in Android-based VR for some time. And during my full review on my tech podcast, Sovryn Tech, I discussed how at Google I/O 2016 that the company now has a new platform for Virtual Reality that they will be baking right into the Android operating system itself, called “Daydream”.

Using the Facebook Mobile Site to Send PM’s? You Won’t Be for Much Longer…

One of the tricks I recommended at the Dark Android Project that, if you REALLY still want to use Facebook on your mobile device, the first thing you can try is to use the mobile website. It has tons of advantages: You don’t have to download the Facebook app which can take up a lot of storage space. It saves
