    • The Nintendo switch has been hacked – via hardware!
      • First discovered by fail0verflow
      • Switch runs on the Nvidia Tegra X1 platform
      • Put the switch into a USB recovery mode by shorting out some pins on the Joy-Con Controller
      • Then trick the Switch’s USB stack by sending a bad “length” argument
      • Allows homebrew and linux to run on the Switch
    • Say Hello to Android Things 1.0
      • Enables you to build and maintain Internet of Things devices at scale.
      • Provides hardware, rich dev api’s, and back end infrastructure
      • System-on-Modules (SoMs) – 3 year “long term support”
      • Raspberry Pi 3 Model B support for prototyping only
    • Listener email: “A topic I’d be interested in hearing you guys discuss is how you go about intentionally improving your engineering skills. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the idea of achieving “mastery” of a skill and I’m quite interested in other people’s take on the topic.”
