Comment It's raining, careful wearing that hoodie (Score 1) 1005

The one thing that I find interesting about the actual transcript is that is Zimmerman as saying " It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about.". Now there has been a debate going about (Thanks to Geraldo Rieveria) about how the Hoodie's make you look like a gangsta. OK, so regardless wheather its raining or not we better not were our hoodies else we may get mistaken for a gangsta.

Comment you can gain a lot from loud cell conversations (Score 1) 805

I've noticed that with the popularity and availability of mobile devices that people tend to forget that they are talking out in a public place where other people can hear their conversation. One case in point (and I over heard conversations like these on multiple occasions.) I was on a train back from Boston and te person next to me decided that it would be the perfect time to call his Credit card company to dispute a charge. giving a little deduction I could of easily pwn'ed this guy. Here is how the one sided conversation that I heard went (editied of course) "Hi This is John Doe, I have a fraudulent chage on my Visa card" "Yes its XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" ( The credit card number) "XX-XX" The expiration date "XXX" (Most likely the 3 digit code on the back of the card for "Additional" security) "XXXX" (Probably the last 4 digits of his soc #) Then he went into details of the charge which turned out to be an annual fee (I know because he said "Oh so I'll get charged that fee every year") No wonder Identity theft is on the rise. You don't have to have killer Computer skills to hack someones identity. You just need to pay attention to cell conversations.
