Xiaomi Mi A1 second take: For $215, it offers the best value of any Android smartphone right now

A couple of months ago, my brother in law came to me with a question: he needed an affordable $200-300 Android smartphone that he could purchase from the UAE or Lebanon and that would do the basics right. My ready-made answer in the category in the past few years has been Samsung's A/C/J series. You get nice hardware, decent software with less bloat nowadays, excellent after-sale support no matter which mom-and-pop repair store you stop at, easy accessory purchase, and it's super fast to sell it on when the time comes to part with your phone. But that's only because Samsung's presence in Lebanon is huge, LG's midrange devices are too costly for the features, Moto and HTC essentially don't exist, Nokia/HMD hadn't begun selling phones again yet, and Huawei started breaking into the market about a year or so ago.

Google Home adds maxdome as a video provider in Germany

Google Home is available in a few countries, but if you live anywhere outside the US, your choice for a video provider is quite limited. Telling Home to play a video from YouTube, Google Photos, or Netflix works in all countries, but that's it. The US gets CBS, CW, Viki, and YouTube TV, but other countries don't have any local content providers. Beside Australia, that is, which has Stan and now Germany is adding maxdome (it should work though it hasn't shown up in this list yet).

Anyone who's set up a Samsung phone has probably seen all the popups for Samsung Cloud backups. It's actually a rather robust system backup tool that can save system settings and app data, but Samsung is dropping a big part of that service.

Google's Linux workstations are switching from Ubuntu to Debian

Like many companies, Google uses a variety of operating systems in-house. macOS and Windows are used by a large number of employees, a modified build of Debian Linux is used on its servers (as of 2014, at least), and Chrome OS and Android devices are commonplace. In work environments where Linux is needed, Google uses a customized version of Ubuntu 14.04 called 'Goobuntu,' which has never been released publicly.

OnePlus targeted by credit card hack that went undiscovered for two months; 40,000 potentially affected

OnePlus has sent a letter to customers this morning, and confirmed in a post on the company's forums, that it was the target of a credit card hack. The attack was accomplished via a malicious script injected into the OnePlus.net payment page code, and allowed the attackers to see customer's credit card numbers, expiration dates, and security codes - enough information to easily allow those cards to be used for fraudulent purchases. Days ago, some users had begun reporting fraudulent card activity on cards they'd used on the site.

OnePlus says the code was injected into its servers sometime in mid-November - just as the OnePlus 5T was about to launch.

Like many Google products, the Home Max isn't easy to find at a discount, especially given its very recent entry to the market.
