Comments Off on The F-BOMB: A tiny $50 spying computer for DARPA
Don’t know if we’ve covered someting like this, so I’m passing this along as I find things of interest to talk about from the backlog of stuff in my inbox.
Comments Off on User error is the biggest threat on the Internet
This is quit interesting. I remember vaguely the kill switch from 2011, where Google removed tons of stuff from phones. I think the phone carrior should do something like this if it is necessary. Check this article out. Microsoft should do the same if it deems necessary. I’m sure this isn’t the end of this.

Comments Off on Appeals Court Upholds Constitutional Right Against Forced Decryption | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Let me understand this. This law is not about technology at all, but about drugs and how you can’t get any in some countries if this passes? Now I’m confused. I thought this was some type of technology bill like Sopa was.

After investigation, I determined something with the show notes for podcast 167 was the cause of why the feed broke. The feed now works, and 168 should be released soon. I have some segments done, but not sure what I want to cover next on it. Sorruy for any trouble.
Comments Off on RSS working
This is quite interesting, a war that will continue for some time. Check this out.

Thanks to a user, we are aware that the RSS for the technology blog and podcast is currently broken. I’ll be putting a support ticket in. If any user would like any podcast from this year from podcast 163 to the present 167, please write me at tech at menvi.org wiith your request. As soon as I know the RSS is posting, I’ll write here and let you all know. I fixed the XML issue, but now the feed is not displaying anything. Thanks for your continued support, and I apologize for any inconvenience this causes you.

Comments Off on Copyright enforcement and the Internet: we just haven’t tried hard enough?
This is just screwed up. This just goes below the belt. Check this article out.
Comments Off on Police: download a file, go to jail for 10 years and pay an “unlimited” fine
Been quite busy this week so I havn’t commented on loads of stuff.
Firstly I’d like to apologise for my lack of commenting on things.
THe heat here has brought a string of sleepless nights which are
thankfully being resolved.
Its also quite hot here during the day making real work after mid day
ny on impossible.
If you havn’t read the blog at smeveriss.wordpress.com, you will not
have heard I have a couple testing jobs.
This needed reschedualling and other things, stuff from one of these
has kept me busy and life in general has kept me busy.
With that out the way, on to the articles.
Google maps alegal.
Hmmm probably, this is not really new.
The contravircy on the google map and street services has and will
never go away.
I remember when that happened, the maps show pools, cars in garages,
houses, etc whatever the satelites scan.
Alegal, no, and invasion of privacy, probably.
But really, a big help.
It means for those of us with no gps we can print out directions.
For us with gps via google earth we can get directions downloaded for us.
Ok, crime may go up some, but thats never really happened has it?
At any rate its cheap to buy a gps now anyway.
Everyone uses it, my family oversease uses it to find us, we use it
to find places we need to go.
My brother uses it for functions and parties, etc.
This thing will plague google till judgement day.
Its not likely going to change anything really.
If worse comes to worse google may have to rebuild its database
without all the extra details.
Then there is the html5 thing.
Whats the point of scanning outgoing info.
A virus needs to get in.
Most of that is from the outside unless you happen to download a
program with spyware which does happen I must admit, or if you have
a large network where a virus or something could come from anywhere I
guess that could happen.
Or a cd with bad software on it maybe.
But for the home user, in general having firewall asking you what is
to go out every time is just a real pain in the but.
