How Google plans to lock you away from iOS and WindowsPC World ^ | 6/26/2014 | Jared NewmanPosted on 6/26/2014, 7:10:10 AM by markomalley


In the past, one thing that’s always separated Google from its rivals has been the ability to use Google services across many platforms.

Whether you owned an iPhone, an iPad, a Mac, or a Windows PC, you always had access to Google services like Search, Maps, and Docs. Of course, Google would prefer that you use Android and Chromebooks, but that rarely felt like a requirement.At this year’s Google I/O conference, we’re starting to see a different strategy emerge.

The blindfold:

The man claimed to be blindfolded when he sent the message. When the American military blindfolds someone, it is accomplished by putting a bag over the head that is locked so you can’t get it off. This left the engineers hands free. This would have made it possible for him to pull his Iphone 5 (a fact confirmed by the Exif data) out of his butt as stated, and use the voice command ability of the Iphone to just talk to it to log in and post the message.

About a million people crammed into New York City’s Times Square and vicinity last night to watch the mother of all shiny, diversionary trinkets, the infamous New Year’s Eve ball, make its way down a flagpole to mark the end of 2013.

Another billion or so people worldwide were glued to their televisions, iPhones or other electronic devices to watch this 11,875 pound geodesic sphere, illuminated by 32,256 LEDs, create a combination of more than 16 million colors and various patterns for their visual entertainment, or should I say entrancement.

Russia Issues Grave iPhone Warning: “Users Give Up All Rights” |

September 29, 2013 3 comments

A new report written by Ambassador Andrei Krutskikh from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) to Deputy Defense Minister Colonel General Oleg Ostapenko that is circulating in the Kremlin today warns that use of the new Apple iPhone 5 constitutes a “grave threat” to all Russian citizens in that merely by its use, “all users have given up their rights to the United States Government.”

Ambassador Krutskikh is the Special Coordinator of the political use of information and communication technologies for the MoFA and was previously Chairman of the Group of UN Governmental Experts on the issue of international information security, and Chairman of the Expert Group on International Information Security of Shanghai Cooperation Organization.


Deputy Defense Minister Ostapenko is tasked with the creation of “cyber troops” for the Ministry whose duties include monitoring and processing external information, as well as fighting cyber threats to the Motherland.

At issue with the iPhone5, Ambassador Krutskikh warns in his report, is the biometric authentication used in these new smart phones which will let users unlock their device with a fingerprint.

Look out Free World: Here Comes the USA—the newly minted ‘United States of al-Qaeda’.


The ‘United States of al-Qaeda’ is the first hard evidence of President Barack Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of America, which in effect throws all U.S. citizens in with the terrorists known as al-AQaeda; a new kind of military of which no one can be proud.



It was in 2008 when running for the presidency, that Barack Obama declared he would someday soon lead a civilian army of his very own: “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we set. We gotta’ have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” (Barack Obama, July 2, 2008).

It should be clear by now that the Federal government, through various agencies like the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, is rapidly moving towards a legal model that aims to strip fundamental rights traditionally protected by the Constitution of the United States.


The Second Amendment is and has been under fire for quite some time, but what many Americans fail to realize is that the attack on our right to bear arms is only part of a much broader plan, one that aims to quietly kill any semblance of liberty we have left.






The Fourth Amendment, which protects an individual’s right to be secure in their own person and home is as important as the right to speak freely and defend one’s self, yet it is being eroded without respite.



gophum (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)




At some point in the last couple of decades there was a shift in how the justice system deals with average citizens. No longer is there a presumption of innocence on the part of police or prosecutors. In the eyes of the government, we’re all guilty of something, a position that has left countless Americans imprisoned or dead for no other reason than the arresting officer or government attorney wanting to stroke their ego or increase their conviction rate.

What’s mine should be mine: Ruling makes it illegal to unlock your phone

Think you own your wireless handset, inside and out? Think you can do whatever you wish with your own property? Think again. Beginning Saturday, it will become illegal to unlock a phone without the express permission of the carrier who locked it.

While the relevant portion of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act legalizes jailbreaking for three years, it also makes it illegal to unlock new, locked wireless handsets (without the permission of the previous carrier). Exemptions include “legacy phones” (“used (or perhaps unused) phones previously purchased or otherwise acquired by a consumer”).

The warning signs of a tyrannical takeover of our Constitutional Republic have been flashing red for some time now and are now reaching a fever pitch. Despite the flashing signs, the clamor of the alarms and the cries of the watchmen, most Americans of this era remain in denial or have been rendered intellectually catatonic by busily chasing immediate gratification in the form of the newest version of the iPhone, iPad, or whatever “i” device will satisfy their ADHD addled intellect.



gophum (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)


Others have simply chosen to adhere to a normalcy bias that is continuously fed by the familiar faces and voices of political pundits who remain dedicated to the lie of the right-left, Republican-Democrat paradigm of American politics, unwilling or unable to look at the larger picture for fear of being shamed by accusations of being part of a conspiracy fringe. Instead, these pundits would rather ignore the lie and squander their ability to make a difference, to educate and inform others of the dangers of the lie they know exists.


We must realize that we are not witnessing the fundamental change of America as represented by the mindless mantra of the Obama campaign, but something much deeper, much more nefarious, and something that will not be rectified through the ballot box. As uncomfortable as it is, what we face cannot and will not wait for the next general election.


Actions have consequences, but so does inaction.

Why Is the Government Collecting Your Biometric Data?

Electronic Frontier Foundation‘s Jennifer Lynch discusses the expansion of biometric data collection, the growth of databases and the impact on increased surveillance.

The next time you get pulled over, watch for a blocky, black gadget attached to the officer’s iPhone. That’s the MORIS device, one of many mobile fingerprint and biometric scanners proliferating in police departments around the country. MORIS is designed to ascertain identity and dig up an unsavory past, but that’s not all: the device can also gather iris scans, fingerprints, and photos searchable with face recognition technology.

Thus Always to Tyrants (“Why The Word “Tyrant” Accurately Describes Obama”)

May 27, 2012 9 comments

“Sic Semper Tyrannis”, latin for “Thus Always to Tyrants,“ is the rallying cry against tyranny dating back to the Roman Empire with the utterance of this phrase by Marcus Junius Brutus upon the assassination of Julius Caesar. This simple phrase has been used by countless European nationals as a cry to arms for independence from their oppressive monarchs, as well as others down through the ages since first spoken two thousand years ago.

English: Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth President of the United States. Latviešu: Abrahams Linkolns, sešpadsmitais ASV prezidents. Српски / Srpski: Абрахам Линколн, шеснаести председник Сједињених Америчких Држава. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

To give an American context to this phrase, John Wilkes Booth immortalized it as he leapt to the stage from the Presidential Box after mortally wounding Abraham Lincoln at Fords Theater 147 years ago, and it is the motto for the state of Virginia.

Throughout history, man has always sought self-determination as a God-given or natural right as they struggled against the rule of man through kings, royalty, and monarchs. This nation was founded upon the principle that man, given the ability, the will, and means to do so, could flourish under self-rule and the rule of law. Flourish, we have; the amount of economic growth and wonders this nation has seen in its short existence of only 236 years is astounding and has not been rivaled in history.

To even begin to understand what has happened to the Republic, we must look backward in time to the period following the Civil War. We must go back to the year 1871, which was the beginning of the decline of the Republic. When we examine what happened during that time in our history, we begin to piece together this troubling, perplexing puzzle that is “America” — only then should we answer as to whether we are indeed a “free” people or not.

If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind. The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama’s first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of “transforming America” in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders.

The most significant accomplishment of Obama’s first term was to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshiping stupor, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.

No one has done it before, and it’s very likely no one else will accomplish such a feat in the future.

ADM Boorda deserves our respect and remembrance as a great leader who deeply cared about his sailors and country.

On this, the 16th anniversary of his mysterious death, we should mourn his loss, but also demand the Pentagon come clean on what really happened in the Washington Navy Yard on May 16, 1996

They’re kidding, right?

India wants to set up a system whereby the United Nations would rule the Internet.

The Internet is governed by “a voluntary, multi-stakeholder group called ICANN or Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.” This group, headquartered in California, ensures that the Internet is free and mostly decentralized. ICANN has a Government Advisory Council (GAC), and invites governments across the world, including India, to participate.

But that is not good enough for India, which wants to set up a different system wherein the United Nations would rule the Internet.

The details of this effort are alarming. Be sure to click this link, read the piece, and let your congressional reps know what you think.

In neighboring Pakistan, the Ministry of Information Technology blocked access to Twitter for what it says was “blasphemous material posted by users” on the social networking site. Another official said “the ban would be lifted after ongoing discussions between the Pakistan government and Twitter about the allegedly blasphemous material are resolved,” according to a Reuters report. The ban was subsequently lifted after several hours.

Young Americans are eschewing cars for alternative transport, leaving carmakers to wonder if this is a recession-induced trend or a permanent shift in habits.

For generations of American teenagers, the car was the paramount symbol of independence. But in the age of Facebook and iPhones, young adults are getting fewer drivers’ licences, driving less frequently and moving to cities where cars are more luxury than necessity.

RUSH: Now, if there is anybody in this audience listening that writes for an Apple or high-tech blog — or if there is anybody listening to this program that works for or at Apple, Incorporated — you have to hear what happened to me this morning. Sadly, I can’t prove it. (interruption) Well, you’ll hear why in a moment. I was so discombobulated by what happened that I didn’t save what showed up on my iPhone. Now, let me describe my setup for you. I have a car that has a Bluetooth mating system in it. So my iPhone is paired with the Bluetooth system, which means that I can use hands-free operation. Everybody does this, probably. No big deal there.


I also drive around with a Verizon LTE hotspot because Verizon’s turned on LTE here which is 20 megabytes down. So I don’t use AT&T’s 4G, I don’t use cellular when I’m driving around. I use Wi-Fi. This hotspot from Verizon converts the LTE signal to Wi-Fi and that’s how I connect the iPhone. So my system is my phone paired with the car’s Bluetooth provided by the manufacturer, and it is also connected via Wi-Fi to a Verizon LTE hotspot. Now, the way Apple iPhone dictation works is you hit the microphone button on your keyboard, and that immediately establishes an online connection with Apple servers somewhere.

RUSH: Let’s talk about the Supreme Court. I am fascinated to watch the media, folks. What is happening today at the United States Supreme Court is what has happened for 222 years. There’s nothing special about today. There’s nothing unique. The court is doing nothing today that it hasn’t done since its inception. But if you read the media you would think that the vote the court’s taking today is unprecedented. Also, various stories, media obviously begging for a leak on the vote. There hasn’t ever been one that anybody could recall. Even Roe v. Wade didn’t leak, and that decision wasn’t announced for months after it was reached.

But the media, here’s a story, this is Associated Press: “Justices Meet Friday to Vote on Health Care Case — While the rest of us have to wait until June, the justices of the Supreme Court will know the likely outcome of the historic health care case by the time they go home this weekend.” Well, of course. They’re voting on it. Is it unfair that the justices know and we don’t know? “While rest of us have to wait until June, the justices will know the likely outcome.” Well, of course, duh.

On Friday, a Wall Street Journal investigation revealed that the search and advertising giant was bypassing the privacy settings of millions of people using Apple Safari browsers on iPhones and desktop computers.“When the IE team heard that Google had bypassed user privacy settings on Safari, we asked ourselves a simple question: is Google circumventing the privacy preferences of Internet Explorer users too?” Hachamovitch wrote.“We’ve discovered the answer is yes: Google is employing similar methods to get around the default privacy protections in IE and track IE users with cookies.”…

25,000 people gathered in Bolotnaya Square in Moscow Saturday, were stunned to witness the strange hovering object directly above them. Some climbed trees to take pictures and get a closer look at the “UFO”.

The craft is clearly some kind of small quadricopter drone similar to the one pictured below:

If the battery is charged and in the phone, the phone is a homing beacon whether it’s on or off. Now add services such as Facebook, and those excellent phone cameras with geotagging, and there is a combination for disaster.

Americans will be forced to receive spurious terror alerts

Paul Joseph Watson


Friday, November 18, 2011

Telecommunications giant Sprint has announced the launch of its Wireless Emergency Alerts program that will deliver messages from the federal government directly to millions of Americans as part of a system set to become mandatory on all new cellphones.

Sprint Launches Soon To Be Mandatory Emergency Alert Messages 330007 milieu linformatique y toujours employes

“Wireless Emergency Alerts allow the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to accept and deliver warning messages to wireless networks from the president of the United States, the National Weather Service and state and local emergency operations centers. Sprint customers will be able to effectively and accurately receive warnings and safety information via text alerts to mobile phones that are equipped with the enabling software and based on their geographic location,” states the press release.

Although existing mobile handsets can only receive the messages if their users have opted-in to the scheme, all new models will be designed so as to force Americans to receive the messages whether they want to or not. Read more…

A god of our age – Who was Steve Jobs?

Steve Jobs


Seventy years ago Orson Welles directed Citizen Kane, which critics still praise as the most innovative film ever. Welles modeled the main character, Kane, on a famous northern California magnate who revolutionized the media of his day, William Randolph Hearst.

“Rosebud” was Kane’s dying declaration, and the narrative structure of the film emphasized the work of a reporter trying to figure out the meaning of that word and the meaning of Kane’s life. Everyone he interviewed saw Kane through the prism of his own preoccupations. The reporter ended up much like the blind man feeling different parts of the elephant and thinking he’s in the presence of a tree trunk, a snake—or something else.

When Steve Jobs died on Oct. 5, newspapers and airwaves (along with iPhones and iPads) were flush with accounts of the Apple founder’s life and legacy—but each biographer seemed to recreate Jobs in the beholder’s own image:

Those wanting a classic American success story described Jobs as the college dropout who co-created the first user-friendly computer and became a multimillionaire at age 25.

Those crafting a moral tale about never giving up…..

Where’s the Outrage

October 8, 2011 Leave a comment

AM by Kaslin

In one of the GOP Presidential debates the number of prisoners who had been put to death in Texas drew applause from the audience. In a subsequent debate, the issue of the end of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was being discussed and, during a short video of a Marine talking about being openly gay, two members of that audience booed.

None of the candidates on stage reacted to the boos which led to a week of projectile sweat outrage by Liberal commentators as to why no-one told the boo-ers to put a sock in it. Note, please that the moderator(s) didn’t ask the candidates about it after the fact.

During my tour de force performance on the Bill Maher show later that week, they showed the same clip with the two people booing and I said, “It was only two people. It wasn’t like the whole audience stood up and waved its collective fists at the screen” or, as Dr. Samuel Johnson was wont to say, “words to a like effect.”

Keith Olbermann and Bill Maher continued to claim, or at least feign, outrage at the lack of response by the candidates but the discussion moved on.

Now, to present day.

The Occupy Wall Street protesters are apparently accepting of a small, but vocal number of their team who have shouted anti-Semitic remarks.

Is it a large percentage of the protesters? Of course not. But, at his press conference yesterday President Barack Obama claimed a loose fellowship with the protesters, and, according to the LA Times, “Obama said he has monitored the movement, which has spread to dozens of cities nationwide. ‘I think it expresses the frustrations the American people feel.’”

So, if he has “monitored the movement, he must have been briefed on the (few) anti-Semitic outbursts and yet the President, like the dog in Arthur Conan Doyle‘s The Silver Blaze, did nothing.

If Liberals were outraged by the lack of response to a hateful reaction to a serving U.S. Marine by two people in a debate audience, why aren’t they equally outraged by the lack of response to a hateful reaction to Jews in general by a handful of protesters on Wall Street?

New Topic

I never met Steve Jobs. I have had breakfast with Bill Gates once, and not with 1,500 other people; with three other people one of whom was Speaker Gingrich.

I have never been a “Mac Guy,” I am comfortable with, and good at, Microsoft’s DOS (in the early days), and Windows (in later iterations).

I resisted Microsoft’s move to the graphical interface of Windows (which was not pioneered by Apple – it was designed by Xerox but popularized in the machines of Steves Jobs and Wozniac) on the technologically elitist grounds that “if you can’t deal with a ‘C-prompt’ maybe you shouldn’t be using a computer.”

As I thought about this position, it occurred to me I must have sounded much like an early pilot who, having seen an altimeter in a cockpit for the first time, might have said, “Hell, son, if you don’t know how high you are without one of those things maybe you don’t belong in an airship.”

In the mid-1990s when I was working for EDS I was in a unit that used Apple Powerbooks as our travelling computers. I was sitting at DCA working on my laptop and a man came up to me and asked how I liked the Apple.

“I hate to admit it,” I said, “but I really like it.”

He said that was great because he was the regional sales manager for Apple.

I still use a PC for my heavy-duty writing, but I have fallen in love with my iPad and am trying to figure out how to buy an iPhone 4S without having to wait in a line at my AT&T store a week from today.

In 2010 Apple employed over 46,000 people in the U.S. – the large majority of them at Apple retail stores. Apple provides employment for thousands more at the plants overseas where the guts for its devices are made.

It’s a pretty good model: Invent things here. Assemble them somewhere else. Sell them all over the planet.

I’m sorry Steve Jobs is gone. We need more of him.

A Biblical Perspective on Steve Jobs’ Death

October 7, 2011 Leave a comment

Steve Jobs the technology genius, co-founder of Apple and billionaire past on into ETERNITY today surrounded by his loved ones. Jobs -who was suffering from pancreatic cancer for some time – finally lost his battle Wednesday. During Mr. Jobs’ existence – in this brief and temporal life – his career spanned more than three-decades in which he revolutionized the computer industry. Mr. Jobs transformed Silicon Valley into a technology innovational center. Also to his credit Jobs laid the ground work for the computer industry alongside others like Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates. Mr. Jobs played a huge part in transforming the way the world interacts with technology and his Apple products were the most desired by the masses.

The most productive era in Mr. Jobs’ career took place near the end of his life. It was in this period when Job’s brought forth products like the iPod, iPhone and iPad which changed the PC, electronics and digital-media industries. The manner in which Jobs marketed and sold Apple products helped turn Apple into a pop-culture phenomenon.

Buddhism has NO answers or remedies for mankind’s unregenerated state and leaves its followers deceived and living in a subjective relativistic world of delusion which can NEVER answer the realities of time and ETERNITY.

Mr. Jobs practiced the pagan spiritual philosophy of Buddhism , who’s teachings exclude the reality of the required RIGHTEOUS PERFECTION demanded by Almighty God our Creator.(John 3:16-17, Rom. 3:23, 10:4, 1 John 2:2). Buddhism has NO answers or remedies for mankind’s unregenerated state and leaves its followers deceived and living in a subjective relativistic world of delusion which can NEVER answer the realities of time and ETERNITY.

Police assisted Apple in search of man’s home

September 4, 2011 Leave a comment

Apple‘s team searched the home, car and computer files, while police waited outside, the reports say. The investigators reportedly told the man that they had traced the phone’s GPS signal to his house. When asked, he said he had been at the same bar where the phone was reportedly lost but that he didn’t have it, the report says.

One of the investigators, who identified himself as Tony, gave the man living in the house a phone number and told him to call with any information about the lost phone, the report says. When the SF Weekly reporter called, a man named Anthony Colon, who said he was an Apple employee, answered, the report says.

Colon’s LinkedIn profile, which he eventually removed, said he is a senior investigator for Apple and a former San Jose police sergeant.

The man, who reportedly said he’s a U.S. citizen who lives with relatives, told SF Weekly that the people searching his home questioned his family’s immigration status.

Apple has a history of working with REACT but apparently did not seek its services this time. The task force has struggled recently over budget constraints, prompting the organization to shut down an office and employ fewer officers, Sterner said.

Nor did Apple enlist the Federal Bureau of Investigation. An FBI spokesman said the cyber-program leader was not aware of such an investigation.

Lost iPhone 5: Bernal Heights Man Says Visitors Impersonating Police Searched His Home (Exclusive)

Lost iPhone 5: Bernal Heights Man Says Visitors Impersonating Police Searched His Home (Exclusive)

Lost iPhone 5: Bernal Heights Man Says Visitors Impersonating Police Searched His Home (Exclusive):

Update (3:25 p.m.): Police now say they did assist Apple security with the home search of a Bernal Heights man. Read the full story here.

A Bernal Heights man says that six officials claiming to be San Francisco Police officers questioned him and searched his family’s home in July for a lost iPhone 5 prototype they asserted had been traced to the residence using GPS technology.

The man’s statements to SF Weekly in an exclusive interview add significant new twists to the unfolding story of the unreleased iPhone 5 that was reportedly lost at a San Francisco restaurant this summer.

If accurate, his account raises the possibility that Apple security personnel attempting to recover the prototype falsely represented themselves as police officers — a criminal act punishable by up to a year in jail in the state of California — or that SFPD employees colluding with Apple failed to properly report an extensive search of a person’s home, car, and computer.

“This is something that’s going to need to be investigated now,” SFPD spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield said, when informed about the Bernal Heights man’s statements to SF Weekly. “If this guy is saying that the people said they were SFPD, that’s a big deal.”……………….
