scorpio.pkt (2933761) writes "There is no denying that most of us put up status updates about the most mundane happenings in everyday life on Facebook. Without ever realizing that these posts could land us in a soup if read by the wrong people.

To which his boss replied, "The same idiot who pays you every month. You're fired anyways. Go back to sleep".

Avoid situations like these and see how you can hide your Facebook status update from your boss/ teacher/ ex/ mom/ dad?"

Submitted by SmartAboutThings
SmartAboutThings (1951032) writes "Smartphones are susceptible to malware and carriers have enabled NSA snooping, but the prevailing wisdom has it there’s still one part of your mobile phone that remains safe and un-hackable: your SIM card.

Submitted by Frosty Piss
Frosty Piss (770223) writes "When people say the feds are monitoring what people are doing online, what does that mean? How does that work? When, and where, does it start? Pete Ashdown, CEO of XMission, an internet service provider in Utah, knows. He received a Foreign Intelligence Service Act (FISA) warrant in 2010 mandating he let the feds monitor one of his customers, through his facility. He also received a broad gag order. Says Mr. Ashdown, "I would love to tell you all the details, but I did get the gag order... These programs that violate the Bill of Rights can continue because people can’t go out and say, This my experience, this is what happened to me, and I don’t think it is right." In this article, Mr. Ashdown tells us about the equipment the NSA installed on his network, and what he thinks it did."

+ - The Man Who Convinced Us We Needed Vitamin Supplements 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The Atlantic has an interesting piece on the life and work of the scientist most responsible for moms around the world giving their kids Vitamin C to fight off colds, Linus Pauling. From the article: ' On October 10, 2011, researchers from the University of Minnesota found that women who took supplemental multivitamins died at rates higher than those who didn't. Two days later, researchers from the Cleveland Clinic found that men who took vitamin E had an increased risk of prostate cancer. "It's been a tough week for vitamins," said Carrie Gann of ABC News. These findings weren't new. Seven previous studies had already shown that vitamins increased the risk of cancer and heart disease and shortened lives. Still, in 2012, more than half of all Americans took some form of vitamin supplements. What few people realize, however, is that their fascination with vitamins can be traced back to one man. A man who was so spectacularly right that he won two Nobel Prizes and so spectacularly wrong that he was arguably the world's greatest quack.'"

Submitted by scorpio.pkt
scorpio.pkt (2933761) writes "For all those who forget the lock screen pattern too often or first spend a few minutes coming up with an ingenious password which no hacker would be able to get through and then forget it themselves, Google proposes to introduce an Unlock System that would require the users of the Android based device to make certain facial gestures while looking int the front camera of their device. That could include winking eyes, pulling out the tongue, rubbing the nose or a wrinkle across the forehead.
This proposed system will ensure that the data stored in the device (whether cell phone or tablet) can not be accessed by unauthorized people."

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Computerworld has an interview with an Australian startup called LIFX, producing WiFi-connected LED light bulbs. Each light bulb is a small computer running the Thingsquare distribution of the open source Contiki operating system that creates a low-power wireless mesh network between the light bulbs and connects them to the WiFi network. The wireless mesh network lets the light bulbs be controlled with a smartphone app. Through a Kickstarter project, the company has already raised a significant amount of money: over one million USD.

Submitted by Iddo Genuth
Iddo Genuth (903542) writes "Videographer Tom Antos developed an advanced DIY camera stabilizer which can hold almost any DSLR or mirrorless camera steady for video photography. Although this surly isn’t as sophisticated (and super expensive) as the professional MVI M10 handheld 3-axis digital stabilized camera gimbal, its still quite impressive especially when you consider it only cost a few hundred dollars rather then tens of thousands — that is if you feel like building it yourself."
