A Booming Business…

While arguably it is nothing to tout, should it really come as any surprise that the Black Market for stolen Smartphones is robust?

Ahoy Matey!

Whilst Pirate Bay might’ve been taken down earlier this week, unless a cease-and-desist is issued, given that Iso-hunt copied their database and posted it on-line, P2P piracy looks to remain for now…

Exclusionary…

Should it really come as any surprise that Apple (yes, the former non-Microsoft that seems to now be more akin to Redmond than different) worked to block all their competition’s access to the iPod?

‘Dislike’

Arguably, Facebook’s arrogance regarding the fact that end-users are unable to ‘dislike’ something is bad form. Granted, ‘disliking’ someone’s content could be done maliciously. Conversely, counting bogus ‘likes’ (which the firm has also been criticized for) is not good form.

Google-Tax…

While Google’s News will shutter their service in Spain (effective December 16th) the fallout could be larger in and as far as yet another limitation on consumer media access (at a time when the Mass Media is not only continually biased but access to credible media resources continues to dwindle…)

Astonishing!

Wow, NASA’s New Horizons Spacecraft is moving at light speed… and is “2.9 billions miles from Earth and over 162 million miles from Pluto…” it’s amazing that 4 hours and 26 minutes later a signal was received that the probe had switched from ‘hibernation’ to ‘active’ mode! Way to go NASA – if we can pull off this intergalactic-feat just think what we can / could do by focusing the same energies on Earth!

The ‘Patriot’ Act?

With latest news of the NSA super-snooping (Aurora-Gold) via having compiled details of 70% of global cellular networks, reviewing what the NSA’s actual charter is long overdue… Yet, it seems that the mere questioning of such draws such pushback that American (let alone, global) Civil Rights seem to be an ever-diminishing consideration in an era of surveillance.
