How to protect yourself from Prism, and other wiretaps

0

If you want to stay out of the ireful, omnipresent eye of the US and other governments, Prism, and the extensive wire taps that undoubtedly exist throughout the world’s internet and telephony networks, here are a few tips.

  • Stop using social networks. If it turns out that the US government has direct access to Facebook, Microsoft, and Google’s servers, you really should stop using their services. You can try using another social network that’s outside Prism’s catchment area, but really you’re just delaying the inevitable.
  • Surf using HTTPS. If you use Chrome or Firefox, you should install the EFF’s HTTPS Everywhere add-on. HTTPS is an encrypted form of HTTP, the protocol that your browser uses to fetch web pages from remote servers. HTTPS should prevent the NSA from intercepting your communications — but, obviously, if the NSA/FBI already has access to the remote server you’re communicating with, HTTPS won’t do you much good.
  • Create an alternate identity, then surf using a proxy/VPN. One of the best ways to prevent the government from tracking you is to assume an alternate identity for all your communications — or at least all of your digital communications — and then use a proxy or VPN to obscure your physical location.
  • Encrypt your phone calls, or use a burner phone. If you want to make phone calls that can’t be tracked back to you, our sister site PC Magazine has compiled a big list of encrypted and burner phone services. Bear in mind that some of these services might be nullified by a NSA backdoor, and voice analysis could be used to link your calls back to your identity.

New Iron Man 3 Trailer: Robert Downey Jr. Gets Lotsa Heavy-Metal Backup

0

Iron man 3

 

 

 

 

Robert Downey Jr.’s ready to show off his Iron grip.
The latest trailer for this summer’s blockbuster-in-the-making Iron Man 3 was released Tuesday, ramping up geekverse giddiness for the big-budget threequel, which finds RDJ’s alter ego Tony Stark squaring off against über-terrorist villain Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley.
And while the nerd-herd has already gorged on hearty helpings of Iron Man 3 prerelease minutiae (three trailers have now been unveiled, in addition to other early nuggets revealed at last year’s Comic-Con), this latest look dutifully cranks up the hype machinery by teasing out more of the film’s plot while giving Iron Man some suitably heavy-metal backup—loads of it.

“I’m Tony Stark. I build neat stuff. I got a great girl. And occasionally, I save the world,” Downey says in a voice-over that opens the trailer. “So why can’t I sleep?”
Well, it’s probably because things don’t stop blowing up in Iron Man Land: His cliffside house is razed to the ground, his array of suits explode into metal scraps and a high-altitude plane attack finds passengers plummeting horrifically to earth.
In between, there are telling glimpses of Stark mysteriously summoning up his suit without the aid of gadgetry, as well as a whiz-bang money shot showing our hero getting reinforcements from an army of other Iron Man suits.

Then there’s Kingsley’s Mandarin, who spews menacing bons mots like “Mr. Stark, today is the first day of what’s left of your life!” and “Do you want an empty life or meaningful death?” while rocking an ominous baritone that just slathers on the villainy.
Iron Man 3, which also costars Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall, tears into theaters on May 3, 2013.

Get Ready for June 11, iPhone and iPad Owners

Scott Forstall introduces iOS 4 at WWDC on June 4 2011

Scott Forstall introduces iOS 4 at WWDC on June 4 2011

This may be a minority viewpoint — in fact, I’m positive it’s a minority viewpoint — but I get far more excited about new versions of Apple’s iOS than I do about new iPhones and iPads. There’s only so much Apple can do to reinvent hardware that will always consist of thin slabs of glass and metal, but the potential to improve iOS is infinite.

So I’m excited about the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference, or WWDC for short. The company announced that it was holding the 2012 edition starting on June 11 in San Francisco this morning — presumably kicking off with a big keynote with lots of news — less than two hours later, the event sold out.

Apple’s WWDC site doesn’t explicitly say that it will be unveiling iOS 6 at the conference, but it seems like a good bet. With only six weeks to go until WWDC, the company surely isn’t going to hold another event to introduce the new version. And it needs to give developers the details and distribute beta versions so that the software is ready for the release of the new iPhone later this year.

(At least I’m assuming that when the the new iPhone shows up, it’ll be running a new version of iOS.)

At some point between now and June 11, I’ll share more thoughts about what I’d like to see in the new version of iOS — most of which involve making the iPad into an even more remarkable personal-computing device. But if you’ve got an iOS wish list of your own, I’d love to hear it right now in the comments.
