  • Google Home Mini Defect Caused Some Units To Record Audio 24/7 [Defect or Design Feature?]

    Intelligent assistant platforms like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant could be the next great frontier in computer interface, but there are bound to be some bumps along the way before we reach a Star Trek-style future. For example, Android Police founder Artem Russakovskii discovered a hardware defect in the upcoming Google Home Mini that caused the device to record almost all nearby audio and upload it directly to Google. That’s a pretty severe privacy violation, but Google says it’s pushing out an update to prevent it from happening again.The Google Home Mini is a small puck-shaped speaker that lets you...

    Aaron Alexis, the gunman who killed twelve people in Washington, D.C., last week, can be seen stalking the halls of the Navy Yard with a shotgun in gut-sinking security footage released today by the FBI. At a press conference, the agency shared the results of its investigation so far: The attack lasted from Alexis’s arrival at the building at 7:53 a.m. until he was shot and killed by law enforcement at 9:25 a.m. His weapons included a Beretta handgun and a Remington 870 shotgun, “altered with a sawed-off barrel and stock” and etched with the previously reported phrases “Better off...

    The FBI released surveillance video and chilling images today showing Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis entering the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters last week and moving through Building 197 with a shotgun. Valerie Parlave, assistant director of the FBI's Washington field officer, said they now have a "greater understanding of recent movements and activities" by Alexis, who they say acted alone. Parlave said Alexis used a shotgun, which had been altered with a sawed off barrel and stock, and a pistol he obtained during the shooting to kill 12 people last Monday. Etched on the shotgun were the phrases "End...

    After naming the wrong man and the shooter, and getting the weapons used completely wrong, here’s yet one more thing the corrupt media is not telling you: From Pamela Geller [Atlas Shrugs] Law enforcement officials told NBC News that Alexis created a webpage with the name “Mohammed Salem.” This is the first I am hearing of this, and have seen no media mention of it (although the fact that he had been a Buddhist has been headlined and recounted numerous times, despite the fact is that there is no compulsion to violence, oppression and ethnic cleansing in the teachings of...

    September 19, 2013, 5:52 PM (GMT+02:00) NBC News quoting law enforcement officials revealed Thursday that Aaron Alexis, who murdered 12 people in the Washington Navy Yard this week, created a webpage in the name of “Mohammed Salem.” The officials said “he never did anything with it” and they found nothing else that “might indicate any interest in violent jihad or even Islam.” So how would they describe the deadly attack on the Navy facility - if not “violent jihad?”

    There has been no other published indication that Aaron Alexis was a Muslim or had any interest in Islam. It may be, however, that in his delusional madness, he began to identify with the jihadists who have committed mass murder in the name of their bloodthirsty god.

    Aaron Alexis seems to have listened to Joe Biden and taken his advice. Back in February Biden said: "You don't need an AR-15," he said. "Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!" And that's what Aaron Alexis did. Back then Bided added: "I have two shotguns at home. No one is going to come and take my guns." Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHZ7zXLvOkYAaron Alexis did buy a shotgun- legally: Aaron Alexis legally purchased the shotgun he used to kill 12 people, the FBI said Tuesday. FBI Assistant Director Valerie Parlave also told reporters that Alexis only had the shotgun -- not an...

    The board that oversees the U.S. Capitol Police has opened an investigation into whether a tactical team of officers that was one of the first on the scene during the Washington Navy Yard shooting was ordered to stand down. Several sources confirmed the probe to Fox News. The investigation follows reports that a highly trained and specialized Capitol Police team arrived soon after the shooting started, but was told by a supervisor to leave the scene. The BBC, which first reported on the allegation, quoted a Capitol Police "source" as claiming "lives may have been saved" if the team could...

    Officials probing Aaron Alexis's background and possible motivation for killing 12 Navy Yard employees are facing the very real possibility that the massacre isn't a the result of a troubled man slipping through cracks in the system so much as an example of a flawed system working exactly as designed. Early reports suggest that Alexis was a heavy drinker with anger issues and a history of run-ins with both the military and the law, including eight instances where Navy superiors cited him for misconduct and three occasions when he was arrested on a variety of charges, including possible gun crimes....

    “If everybody had arms then there wouldn’t be these problems…my son was at … Navy Yard yesterday (9/16/13) and they had weapons with them, but they didn’t have ammunition. And they said, ‘We were trained and if we had had the ammunition we could have cleared that building. Only three people had been shot at that time and they could have stopped the rest of it.’” No 2nd Amendment for the U.S. military? Only Liberals can take violating our Constitutional rights to beyond the absurd. So, Homeland Security gets a couple billion rounds of ammunition, but the military doesn’t get...

    A tactical response team of the Capitol Police, a force that guards the US Capitol complex, was told to leave the scene by a supervisor instead of aiding municipal officers. The Capitol Police department said senior officials were investigating. Aaron Alexis, 34, killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday. "I don't think it's a far stretch to say that some lives may have been saved if we were allowed to intervene," a Capitol Police source familiar with the incident told the BBC. A former Navy reservist, Alexis was working as a technical contractor for the Navy and...

    Speaking for the first time since Alexis opened fire on colleagues at the Washington naval base, his mother released an emotional apology to the families of her son's victims. "I don't know why he did what he did, and I'll never be able to ask him, why. Aaron is now in a place where he can no longer harm to anyone, and for that I am glad," Cathleen Alexis said, her voice cracking in a brief audio statement. "To the families of the victims, I am so, so very sorry that this has happened. My heart is broken."

    FORT WORTH, Texas — Aaron Alexis was so unhappy with his life in America — where he was beset by money woes and felt slighted as a veteran — that he was "ready to move out of the country" last year, a friend said Tuesday. "He was tired of dealing with the government," said Kristi Suthamtewkal, whose husband owns the Thai Bowl Restaurant in Fort Worth, where Alexis worked in exchange for room and board. But instead of leaving the U.S., the former Navy reservist relocated from Texas to Virginia, where an IT company called The Experts put him on...
