  • Warning over iPhone apps that can silently turn on cameras at any time

    Apple has been urged to change the way in which iPhone apps are granted access to the phone's camera after a security researcher demonstrated how apps can secretly record photos and videos without the user knowing. Felix Krause, an Austrian developer who works for Google, built an app that was able to take pictures of its user every second and upload them, without notifying the user. He called it a "privacy loophole that can be abused by iOS apps". When an app wants to access the camera, for example to scan a credit card or take a profile picture during...

    What do you do to top Google's highly regarded first-generation Pixel phone camera? The same, only more. More HDR+ image processing. More chip power. More artificial intelligence. And more image stabilization. The result for photos: "All the fundamentals are improved," said Tim Knight, head of Google's Pixel camera engineering team. On top of that are new features including motion photos, face retouching and perhaps most important, portrait mode. In the days of film, a photo was the product of a single release of the camera's shutter. In the digital era, it's as much the result of computer processing as old-school...

    The NFL ratings dropped substantially after a record number of players protested the national anthem on Sunday, and polls have even shown that the majority of Americans believe that players should stand for the national anthem. During the Patriots versus Texans game, it was blatantly obvious what fans thought of the players kneeling for the national anthem. As “The Star-Spangled Banner” played, fans noticed 17 Patriots players kneeling. Then the stadium of approximately 60,000 began booing and screaming, “Stand up!” Watch: But now, Sporting News is reporting that it spoke with a “behind-the-scenes TV staffer” and found that the NFL...
  • Communist China Uses Face Recognition Computers to Ration Toilet Paper

    Communist China is having a string of toilet paper thefts. Ergo they must ration toilet paper. And are using facial recognition software. Toilet paper. Facial recognition software. Let that soak in before wiping. That’s because people have been taking so much toilet paper that the UNESCO World Heritage Site operators decided enough was enough, and installed facial recognition dispensers at its toilets, local reports said. If the same user is detected within nine minutes, the dispenser will deny them a second feed of paper. Obviously, anyone who has eaten Chinese food before can see how this may be problematic. In...

    A cop shot an Ohio news photographer after confusing his camera and tripod for a weapon, according to the paper. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office deputy shot New Carlisle News photog Andy Grimm in the side as he unloaded a tripod from his vehicle to snap pictures of a traffic stop around 10 p.m. Monday. Without warning, the deputy opened fire as Grimm was setting up the tripod. The photographer said he and the deputy knew each other.
  • Third Video Shows ‘Questionable Activity’ by Police, and Baltimore Drops More Cases

    The New York Times ^ | 22 Aug 2017 | Jacey Fortin
    For the third time in about a month, body-camera video showing “questionable activity” by Baltimore police officers has prompted state prosecutors to dismiss or postpone dozens of criminal cases, the Baltimore City state’s attorney’s office said in a statement this week. The state attorney’s office did not describe what was captured in this latest video. But it said the footage was brought to the attention of the office by the Baltimore Police Department on Aug. 2 and “was self-reported as a re-enactment of the seizure of evidence.” State attorneys referred the matter to the Police Department’s internal affairs division. T.J....

    With mainstream media reporters telling their audiences that the end is nigh over the Trump White House decision to hold fewer press briefings on camera, few are mentioning that the move is not without precedent — with President Bill Clinton’s White House turning off the cameras in the ’90s because they weren’t “necessary.” The Trump administration has been reducing the number of press briefings available to cameras in recent weeks, triggering horror from many in anti-Trump press outlets, particularly those with a reputation for showboating. CNN Senior White House reporter Jim Acosta even tried to push his own hashtag: #whyarethecamerasoff...

  • Government Spooks Can Use The Mic And Camera On Trump’s Phone Even When He Thinks It Is Turned Off

    After reading this article you might not ever view your electronic devices the same way again.  Last year, Hollywood released a biographical political thriller based on the life of Edward Snowden that had one particularly creepy scene.  In that scene, a government spook used a program to remotely activate the microphone and camera on a laptop, and by doing so he was able to watch a woman as she got undressed.  Sadly, as you will see below, this kind of thing is happening constantly.  Any digital device can potentially be accessed and used to spy on you even if it...

    The Amazon Echo's virtual voice assistant "Alexa" is already a great listener -- now, a new report suggests she might soon keep an eye on your home, too. That scoop comes in the form of a picture of an Amazon-branded security camera that AFTVNews reportedly found "sitting on Amazon.com." The small, free-standing design is similar to products like the Nest Cam or the Canary Flex, but it's the blue ring around the lens -- reminiscent of the blue ring on top of the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot smart speakers -- that's raising eyebrows. Does that mean that this thing...

    DC Police will not be able to run on their body cameras at inauguration day protests. Washington DC – All DC Police Officers have recently been outfitted with body cameras, but they will be in serious trouble if they have them on during the Inauguration Day protests. NBC News 4’s Mark Segraves reported that it’s “against the law” for body cameras to be on while police are at protests unless the officer is required to take action. This means that officers can turn the cameras on when they want to arrest somebody, but they will be unable to capture what...

    In order to prevent or minimize the election fraud, to beat Soros'sss crooked voting machines, to make sure that your vote counts PROPERLY, we should use diligence and technology to obtain proof of fraud and report problems and prosecute the violators. In case when voting terminal is rigged, changing votes, dropping R votes or not registering - take the picture with your cell phone camera, take number of the voting terminal and report to officials. Publicize the problem. There were cases when boxes of ballots were "lost" especially those with majority of votes for R. Those having some time available,...
  • Apple: FBI could force us to turn on iPhone camera, mic (FBI could force us to turn on iPh

    If the FBI wins in its case against Apple to help it unlock the San Bernardino killer’s iPhone 5C, it won’t be long before the government forces Apple to turn on users’ iPhone cameras and microphones to spy on them, according to the company’s head of services Eddy Cue. The FBI has demanded that Apple creates custom software that bypasses certain security features of the company’s iOS to allow law enforcement to brute force the passcode of the gunman’s iPhone 5C. But according to Apple, making the modifications necessary in this case would set a dangerous precedent in offering backdoors...
