Thanks for posting the links. I didn't know the old version was still available until I read this story. What a cluttered mess the current version is. It wouldn't be so bad if there was a choice to de-clutter the map, but if there is I haven't found it.
human accomplices only need to be tricked into helping
Or they may be perfectly willing to help. The Daniel Suarez novel Daemon illustrates quite nicely how humans might be pressed in to service by a super intelligence. I highly recommend it.
But what does it have to do with my phones capability to record a call?
If you can hear it, you can record it.
I record most of my calls. At work I use a Nexxtech telephone recorder similar to this this. I plug the 3.5 mm jack in to my Tascam DR-07 digital recorder. When I place or receive a call I just press record then log the call details along with the file name when it ends.
If a call comes in on my cell that I want to record I ask the caller to wait while I put them on speakerphone then use the Tascam's built in mics to record the conversation.
If you don't have a stand-alone recorder, a laptop with built-in mic and/or audio input and something like Audacity will do nicely as well.
If your phone lacks the ability to record conversations, either because it doesn't have speakerphone capabilities or can not work with a device like the one I linked to above, I would replace the phone. Cordless phones can be problematic as they emit rf that can be picked up by the recorder but a cordless with speakerphone either on the base station or handset should work with a digital recorder with built-in mics.
The biggest challenge with recording calls is keeping track of all them so you can find the relevant one in the future. I hacked together a simple PHP/MySQL application I host on my personal site that I use to log calls but a spreadsheet works well too. It's also helpful to begin recordings with whatever detail you can provide prior to dialling or answering. That way you just have to listen to the first few seconds of your recording to find out what the call is about.
If the laws where you live prevent you from recording a conversation you are participating in I would say you have significantly bigger problems than your phone's hardware capabilities.
I keep written notes of meetings, I keep my old notebooks, I keep a (semi) daily journal, I archive emails, appointment calendars and task lists as well as text messages and all other forms of written communications. I see no reason why I should not be able to record any conversation I am part of. If a person asks me to not share what was talked about with others, the existence of a recording has no relevance to that. If I can remember it, there is a record.
As far as calls with companies go, I can't remember the last time a call to or from a business or government agency didn't include the disclaimer that "for quality control and training purposes, this call may be monitored or recorded." I always reply that it most certainly is.
In general I don't record personal calls with friends or my wife, since it's unlikely I will need a record of those calls in the future. But they *are* being recorded, of that I have no doubt. All calls are recorded by various agencies and companies. I have no control over that. What I can do is keep my own record of my calls, just in case the need ever arises for me to know what exactly was said.
As long as you take reasonable precautions to safeguard these recordings - as you would your written communications - I can not see why there would be a problem with it.
I thought open source software was supposed to be better because everyone could see the code and spot problems.
It is, they can and do.
Nations with an actual space program should stop subsidizing these losers
So Russia should stop shuttling US astronauts to and from ISS?
What are you trying to do? Referring to?
On the assumption you're not trolling, I believe he was referring to these.
Yes, all you idiots who want an Internet Of Things, go build your own internetwork and GTF off of ours. That should free up enough IPv4 addresses to keep us going a couple more decades.
I rather die then see the huge medical bills for this type of treatment
I think you would need to do things the other way around. Once you're dead, you would not then be able to see the medical bills.

Downside : a normal coffee brew process generates 6-12 cups of Joe.
I guess we could all switch to a press
... but that's a bit messy and requires a stand alone heating method (I've not the space to keep a proper tea kettle on my office desk)
I've been using single cup coffee makers like this Black & Decker Brew 'n Go for years. No mess, no fuss, just pour a cup full of fresh water from your cup in to the reservoir, add a couple scoops of fresh ground coffee to the filter basket and hit the go button.
You get a fresh cup of coffee without the waste of those empty "pods," and no DRM to boot.

Yeah, you're probably right about that.
With the general definition of the PC market being something you can install Windows/DOS on or WinTel compatible
Where did you get that idea? A personal computer is just that, a small, affordable computer that is operated directly by the end user. Neither Windows or an Intel processor are required.
As far as I can see, this is the first time the NRF24L01+ is being decoded, especially considering the low entry price for the hardware. Given the extreme popularity of this transceiver, we are likely to see a wave of hackers attacking the security of many wireless gadgets, and they are likely to succeed as security is usually the last priority for hardware designers of such cheap gadgets.
A lot of work have been done to decode bluetooth using dedicated hardware and I am sure this software can be adapted to output the right format as input to the existing Bluetooth decoders such as Wireshark.
As far as I can see, this is also the first time BTLE can be decoded using a very cheap generic device.
