Submission + - Online facial recognition company accepting beta applications->

Fr05t writes: Own Your Face has launched and is accepting applications for a closed beta of their online facial recognition search service. The service doesn't allow an open search, but instead verifies user accounts then builds a facial recognition profile using social media photos so individuals can know when and where their photos are being used online. Find our more at http://www.ownyourface.com/

Anybody who ever served on active duty and handled classified information is just a bit hacked off at Her Majesty's cavalier attitude about, well, everything.

That's true, but comparing Hillary's sending and receiving emails that weren't marked as classified over a non-government server is absolutely NOTHING compared to Petraus' knowingly giving top secret information to someone with neither a need to know nor a security clearance. Remember Mata Hari? (I probably spelled that wrong)

Plus, his adultery is strictly against the USMJ code; people have gotten dishonorable discharges for that alone, and anyone else would have gotten time in Leavenworth for spilling secrets. Petraus got off not with a slap on the wrist, but a stern talking to.

Journal Journal: Gimpy text and Mars

I use the Gnu Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) to design book covers. It's an excellent free open source program that has three weaknesses -- its menu structure is completely illogical (but can be gotten used to), I can't find a full spectrum palette, and its text handling is so poor as to be useless.

Journal Journal: Table of Contents

I've spent the last three days working to fix the ePubs and AZW3s of Yesterday's Tomorrows. I had just ran it through Calibre and did a quick check, noting that the table of contents didn't display anything.

It took a lot of research and learning to fix the ToC, and while doing so discovered something even worse - some of the illustrations were covering up the text. Damn!

Downton Abbey is on PBS. All you need is an antenna, and you can have it for FREE!

I have gotten pretty good as reducing monthly expenses. I built a home theater PC with four tuners connected to an antenna. I pay for basic Netflix streaming + 2 DVDs per month. My internet is naked DSL from a company that does not throttle bandwidth (CenturyLink), and I use MagicJack for phone ($30 per year). My total for everything is under $60/month for phone, internet, and TV. Comcast would happily sell me something similar for around $100/month (for the first year, price goes to $500/month after that).

I would like to get some more channels like SciFi (or SyFy, or ScyFye, or whatever), and Discovery, but it is not worth $50/month for a bundle that includes those.

Ting comes close
1) 6 dollars a month per activated SIM
2) only pay for what you use (more like pay for what category you fit this month)
3) BYO phone (buy a BLU, or a nexus, or anything really.) T-mobile compatible GSM and some CDMA.
4) No extra charge for tethering your tablet. it just uses your data.

Check out their rates. I am a happy customer.
I was paying AT&T $160 for 2 phones, now I pay Ting $45 to $60 for 3 phones.

Eh, it's kind of like your Android phone not making root readily available. It's there to protect the unwashed masses from themselves. Serious hobbyists (or bad actors) don't have much difficulty getting around the restrictions. I don't think anyone seriously thinks that "geofencing" software will keep a terrorist from flying a drone into restricted airspace. What it will do is keep the "hold my beer and watch this!" crowd from flying their drone into the glide path of a 747.

remember, Facebook != Internet

It is to many people, particularly those that came of age after the internet went mainstream, as well as those that are older and less technically adept.

Like it or hate it, Facebook is the Internet to a lot of people. Try having a brick and mortar business these days without a presence on Facebook. There are countless people that will go looking for something on Facebook long before they think of a simple Google search. Why do you think Google has invested so much effort into social media despite their many failures? They're terrified of people like this.

At the rate things are going the "dark web" isn't going to be warez, criminals, and black hats; it's going to be anything that's not on Facebook and Twitter.
