Submission + - The tech of Star Trek: here today, or on its way (technologizer.com)

Harry writes: "J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movie is only a month away, and while it may be a promising reimagining of the the Trek universe, there are plenty of ways in which the old Trek universe is reminiscent of our own 21st century. Abrams' film is the eleventh Star Trek movie, so we've compiled a look at eleven technologies from Star Trek that foreshadowed stuff that's actually happening today."

Submission + - Worst privacy invasion in the world, by the UK (telegraph.co.uk) 1

Anonymous Coward writes: "A European Union directive, which Britain was instrumental in devising, comes into force which will require all internet service providers to retain information on email traffic, visits to web sites and telephone calls made over the internet, for 12 months.

Police and the security services will be able to access the information to combat crime and terrorism.

Hundreds of public bodies and quangos, including local councils, will also be able to access the data to investigate flytipping and other less serious crimes.

It was previously thought that only the large companies would be required to take part, covering 95 per cent of Britain's internet usage, but a Home Office spokesman has confirmed it will be applied "across the board" to even the smallest company."
