  • NSO Group CEO says law-abiding citizens have 'nothing to be afraid of'

    Do you think this man has any self awareness into his own lies? You have nothing to worry about, nothing to see here everyone. Never mind that people face ruin simply for having an opinion that some may see as controversial. That’s often based on what they said in public and frequently from years ago. 
    Just think of the influence you’d have over someone if you could enjoy their most private thoughts. Software such as this should only be used in specific limited circumstances and with a court order on each occasion. Breaches of that should result in fines and or imprisonment for NSO executives. 
  • Compared: Apple's second-generation Siri Remote versus predecessors

    Nice article. I don’t think we should downplay just how awful the trackpad was. As much as I love Apple, I viscerally hate that remote. 
    I’m not alone in this, this is common for cyclists using Zwift. If you had the smallest bit of sweat on your thumb, no play. It in fact astonishes me that they sold it for so long. I don’t think it’s unfair to say this was a poor move. 
    As a side, ah Apple TV & TV setup is probably the cheapest yet most immersive Zwift setup. Similar price to an iPad I guess but much better. If you’re a cyclist, give it a go!
  • iPhone 12 boasts latent reverse wireless charging feature, FCC filing suggests

    If AirTags are a real thing, this might be a great way to charge them. 
  • Video: Everything you need to know about the new AirPods before you buy

    Great little video that, good work. 
    So i’ve bought myself a pair this afternoon. Am I the only one so mesmerised by the wireless case who’s just realised they don’t yet have a wireless charger? Come onnnnn AirPower.
    Apple marketing and allure has cost me again. This won’t be the last time im sure.

    I am really pleased to see these companies producing products like this. We need genuinely secure encryption but we also need people trying (and succeeding) to break that encryption. These products also prove that law enforcement isn’t helpless in the face of encryption and therefore need backdoors, and so they rather should be investing in techniques to legally break the encryption.
    So which law enforcement agency do you work for? 
    In an ideal world, sure, I get it. Regrettably, state actors have consistently and determinedly ignored our collective right to privacy. Any ability to break encryption will be disseminated faster than the Salt Bae meme. Due process and legal oversight will be dispersed just as frivolously.
