    A little background first:The Deep State's  Department of Defence and CIA  (e.g., Clinton, Obama and more) backed the development of LifeLog, a social media site intended to surveille the public electronically by getting them to volunteer and share socially information that the weaponized intel would harvest.See if you can perceive the similarities between DARPA's LifeLog program and Facebook:LIFELOG captures, stores, and makes accessible the flow of one person's experience in and interactions with the world in order to support a broad spectrum of associates/assistants and other system capabilities. The objective of the LifeLog concept was "to be able to trace...

    The United States and China are racing for dominance in 5G wireless connectivity. The R&D, the inventions, the technological standards and the commercial products developed and deployed in the coming months and years will determine whose inventions bring the world the next generation of wireless technology. Two companies lead in foundational research and development of 5G. Fortunately for the world, U.S.-based Qualcomm has invented and developed superior 5G core technologies. It makes a profound difference which countrys innovations a few key collaborative standards-setting bodies adopt as the foundation of the next-generation wireless infrastructure. 5G wont be your Moms internet.

  • Why is a 22GB database containing 56 million US folks' personal details sitting on the open internet using a Chinese IP address? Seriously, why?

    01/10/2020 6:30:00 PM PST · by ameribbean expat · 26 replies
    Exclusive A database containing the personal details of 56.25m US residents from names and home addresses to phone numbers and ages has been found on the public internet, served from a computer with a Chinese IP address, bizarrely enough. The information silo appears to have been obtained somehow from Florida-based, which is a typical people-finder website: for a fee, you can enter someone's name, and it will look up their current and past addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, names of relatives, and even criminal records in some cases, all presumably gathered from public records. However, all of...

    Amazon is one step closer to implementing its creepy, futuristic flesh-and-blood payment system. The e-tailing giants engineers on Thursday filed a patent application for a device that can scan a human hand without ever touching it as a way to ring up a store purchase. As The Post exclusively reported in September, the device is being developed by Amazon engineers under the code name Orville for a future rollout at the Amazon-owned Whole Foods supermarket chain. Employees at Amazons New York offices have been serving as guinea pigs for the biometric technology, using it at a handful of...

    Subtitle: Americans deserve a stronger assurance than hope that their Fourth Amendment rights are being respected. The F.B.I.s investigation of the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, we can now say with assurance, was a train wreck. In his report, Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz cataloged a damning list of egregious errors, omissions or misrepresentations in filings to the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which approved nearly a years worth of wiretaps on Mr. Page. Many Republicans have taken this as proof that the investigation was hopelessly contaminated by anti-Trump political bias. That would be the optimistic scenario. Unfortunately,...

    Terrill Frantz, a cybersecurity associate professor at Harrisburg University, compares smart TVs to your smartphone. TVs on the market now have the ability to connect to the internet. Theyre equipped with cameras, microphones, and in some cases, facial recognition technology. How easy is it for somebody to hack into a smart TV, I asked. Well, presently, its fairly easy, answered Frantz. The FBI says smart TVs are often poorly secured by their manufacturers, compared to computers or smartphones. Experts say cyber-criminals can hack in and change channels, play with the volume, and in a worst-case scenario, watch and listen to...

    World-first technology to catch drivers using phones illegally is being introduced in NSW ahead of the rest of the country. Here are the mobile phone fines in each state. Drivers using a mobile phone illegally have a greater chance of getting caught from today, as NSW becomes the first place in the world to introduce mobile phone detection cameras and other Australian states are poised to follow. A mix of 10 fixed and portable mobile phone detection cameras will be installed in NSW from today (1 December 2019); another 35 are planned over the next four years. During a...

    Uber plans to record audio during rides in the United States as part of a new security feature, in its latest push to protect riders and drivers amid rising safety concerns. The feature, which is first to be piloted in some Latin American cities next month, allows users to opt in to activate an audio recording on any trip or all trips, according to internal communications viewed by The Washington Post and confirmed by Uber. In markets where its available, users would probably be given a blanket warning that trips are subject to recording and that the feature will...

    Police officers who download videos captured by homeowners Ring doorbell cameras can keep them forever and share them with whomever theyd like without providing evidence of a crime, the Amazon-owned firm told a lawmaker this month. More than 600 police forces across the country have entered into partnerships with the camera giant, allowing them to quickly request and download video recorded by Rings motion-detecting, Internet-connected cameras inside and around Americans homes. The company says that the videos can be a critical tool in helping law enforcement investigate crimes such as trespassing, burglary and package theft, and that homeowners are free...

    Silicon Valleys biggest companies are always watching you even when youre browsing pornography websites in incognito mode. What these companies might be doing with pornography-site browsing data is a mystery. Oracle, which owns a number of large data brokers and has been called a privacy deathstar, could, for example add data collected by trackers with its current profiles. Dr. Maris argues that this lack of disclosure is similar to the issue of sexual consent. As in any sexual interaction, silence must not be mistaken for consent, she said. Individuals should have a clear understanding of the power dynamics of...

    Advocates of "body hacking" will gather in Austin this weekend to promote everything from bionic limbs to human microchips that can serve as anything from identification to a car key... Goodman showed off his own most recent "hack," a radio-frequency identification (RFID) chip in his left hand. It's the same technology veterinarians implant into pets as a way to identify dogs and cats, but humans are using them to make their lives simpler or, in some cases, safer. "You can log into your computer, you could open your doors" with the chips, Goodman said. "I know people who start their...

    Full tile: Jeff Bezos Protests the Invasion of His Privacy, as Amazon Builds a Sprawling Surveillance State for Everyone Else IF BEZOS WERE the political victim of surveillance state abuses, it would be scandalous and dangerous. It would also be deeply ironic. Thats because Amazon, the company that has made Bezos the planets richest human being, is a critical partner for the U.S. Government in building an ever-more invasive, militarized and sprawling surveillance state. Indeed, one of the largest components of Amazons business, and thus one of the most important sources of Bezos vast wealth and power, is working with...

    A former police clerk is accused of filming nearly 70 of his male colleagues using the restroom without their knowledge, authorities said. And where did this brazen act allegedly take place? A second-floor bathroom inside the headquarters of the Long Beach Police Department. KCAL9s Tom Wait says the 28-year-old ex-employee identified as Sergio Nieto was in possession of about 115 tapes in all. Nieto has been charged with 115 misdemeanor counts of invasion of privacy. The formal complaint lists 69 victims. The videos show the men dressing and using the facilities. Officials say Nieto filmed the men using...

    The Times reported late Tuesday that it obtained internal Facebook (FB) documents that show how the social media arranged to share data with more than 150 companies. The deals helped Facebook gain more users, according to the report, and its partners were able to add new features to their products while effectively avoiding Facebooks usual privacy rules. Many of the partnerships ended years ago, but the details reported by the Times are striking. Amazon (AMZN) got access Facebook users names and contact information through their friends on the social network, according to the report, while Microsofts (MSFT) search engine Bing...

There are plenty of great books that effectively promote it, such as Don and Alex Tapscotts nearly canonical Blockchain Revolution, published in 2016. Fast forward the revolution by two years. Theres more to say. George Gilder, in the most important recent book on blockchain, is here to say it. He not only dazzles but demystifies the blockchain, making vivid exactly how it is going to transform the internet and...
