I recommend https://electrum.org, even though the website doesn't look super awesome. You'll get a "seed" that generates your keys that is 12 words long. It looks something like this:
"help staple correct horse ..."
From there, just store that seed somewhere secure and you can use that to generate your keys whenever you want, on any machine you want. Personally I keep my seed in two different safe-deposit boxes and one on (shameless plug) my own encrypted text app I made called Onions - http://onionsapp.github.io.
Electrum is great, but not very easy to use (since it's desktop). Get Electrum, Mycelium or Breadwallet, depending on your platform. I've heard good things about GreenAddress, and I recommend a ledger hardware wallet. You can use the ledger with Electrum and Mycelium, so you can spend coins from desktop or mobile. I've also imported my Mycelium wallet onto my second ledger, just so I can move coins from the desktop.
Ledger is pretty good for the price tag it has. It is simlple yet effective. Trezor is a worthy mention since it can be used anywhere(even on an infected computer) whereas you need to setup the ledger on a secure host.
Alternately, you can grab the binary from the .ipa and decompile it. Objective-C/Swift code effectively can't be symbol-stripped; objc_msgSend takes a string selector, and those selectors remain evident in the binary. (This also makes writing cracks/keygens for Obj-C apps very, very easy.)
Exactly. Try anywhere not directly in the highest rent-inflated area in the US, or in any moderately rural suburb. Not that difficult to afford a house. Could get a decent 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath starter home where I'm at right now for about $750 a month in mortgage.
I'm having a hard time imagining what world you live in where teenagers have ~$3000 + gas money in disposable income from their $7.25/hour jobs and no pressure to save it for college. My suburb was probably in the top 1% of property values in the state and only a few (~10 out of 250) kids "owned" cars, which their finance-industry parents bought them.
Most garages were 2-car, and you don't want a car outside of a garage in snow. I was actually offered my grandmother's car for free when she died, but my parents refused it because they didn't want to deal with 3 cars in a 2-car driveway and garage.
No one else had any say in what car they would drive; 99% of the time it was Mom's minivan or Prius, with constant tension over when the keys would be brought back home. 95% of my graduating class went to college, and all but a few of them lived in dorms (at least for the first year) where car ownership was neither necessary nor permitted.
None of us will be thinking about buying cars until we graduate. And even then, those who will have money to buy cars they want, instead of the cheapest thing that starts, will be the San Francisco software engineers and the Manhattan investment bankers, i.e. the people who don't need them. I know a few people who got cars out of necessity for internships in remote places, and on all accounts it was a ~10-year-old, boring, practical castoff of a middle-aged relative who wanted an upgrade, to be sold when no longer necessary.
Personally, I'd love a Jetta but I can't imagine what I'd use it for, and for the same amount of money I can get a fully-loaded rMBP, an iPhone, and less student debt.
> you don't want a car outside of a garage in snow
Why not? It works fine, and there are few places in the US cold enough to even require a block heater, let alone actually endangering the engine. Just have to brush it off sometimes, but it's hardly a dealbreaker. I lived almost 20 years in Alaska and never had a garage that we used for cars.
I agree with you... However, where do you (or your parents, I guess) live where you have a 2-car garage but not enough space to park a car on the street in front of your house? (snow isn't a real excuse, plenty of people in snowy places don't park their cars in garages)
But you need to understand that this perspective doesn't exist for the middle 90% of the country and really only applies to the large metros where things are either dense enough for cars not to be generally necessary, or public transit is acceptably good. Everywhere else, most teens need a [cheap] car just to get to & from their part time & summer jobs, or to shuttle around their younger siblings.
Public transit is worthless where I grew up. Your choices are to share your parents' cars, get driven everywhere by your parents (most common), work at one of the 3 walking-distance employers, or simply not leave the house very much.
I live in Huntsville, AL. Where I grew up in Madison, AL, basically everybody in my graduating class had a car. Some were junkers and some were stupid expensive. I didn't have one until I bought one from my parents after my freshman year of college.
It might depend on where you live. For a teenager who lives in a reasonably dense area, even using Uber/Lyft to get around could easily be less expensive than car ownership. (I mean, geez, even just insurance premiums for teenagers are off the wall these days.) If that summer job is accessible without a car, that means it can be even more part time without sacrificing the ability to get around.
I lived in a very rural area so for me car ownership really did represent freedom. But if that weren't the case then I think that calculus would have been pretty attractive to me. Having the freedom to not spend so @$@#% much time doing menial crap like flipping burgers? Heck yeah.
Notch could not have overreacted more. Sure their ToS may allow for privacy creep, but that thread of messages between him and Daniel Ek was so cringe for Notch. He basically doesn't want Spotify to be able to access anybody's photos because how he utilizes music and playlists doesn't use photos. Sounds pretty selfish and naive to me.
Sharing all your friends' contact details with Spotify despite them possibly having never even seen the ToS just so you can listen to some tunes seems more "selfish and naive" if you ask me. Potentially in violation of EU data protection laws too.
I wasn't talking about that part. I was talking about Notch basically not understanding why people would want to use pictures to make playlists and to identify themselves to friends on a social music platform. He basically said it was totally unnecessary and arrogantly inferred that the way he uses music is the only way people should use music.
He's voting with his wallet because he disagrees with the direction that a company seems to be taking. Everyone is free to choose for themselves based on their personal comfort level. How is this selfish and naive?
