Announce your intent II

I’ve chatted with a friend of mine about this (and also bragged to him that my blog is now linked by cnn on the article of cybercrime Victory!) and he gave my an interesting thought. The calls may be also categorized as of urgent, normal and low importance.

I am President of the Internet – Surveillance Society IV

I was talking to a friend today about web crawlers and he told me that when google was indexing the server, all employees at his former work place were looking anxiously to huge raise in sales Ka-ching.

Everyone receives Google these days with lots and lots of love, but will there be a time, when things will be the other way around? When one or some very powerful spiders may be regarded as the sentinels in the Matrix? Is China in this situation already? Continue Reading →

European Union on privacy laws

I am goood! I am sooo goooood!

While I was having these thoughts on privacy matters (the last 4 posts on surveillance society), Europe was having a two day meeting for setting compulsory changes search engines need to apply in order to reach a normal standard of privacy :)

Read International Herald Tribune article on this matter.

Online, yet incognito – Surveillance Society III

Talking to some friends today about this issue, it hit me that there is a potential need for online “swiss banking accounts” for online processed personal data.

iPhone unlocked by George Hotz

Good news that AT&T is no longer the sole operator of iPhone. As George Hotz shows on his blog on thursday, there are 10 steps to break in

BBC reads that “Before George Hotz’s announcement on his blog, the iPhone was made to work on overseas networks using another method, which involves copying information from the Sim (Subscriber Identity Module) card.

However, special equipment was needed and the actual phone was not unlocked, with each Sim card having to be reprogrammed for use on a particular iPhone.”

George, do us all a good favor and unlock it for the European market… we love iPhone just as well :) !!
