Book Review: Locked Down: Information Security For Lawyers

MrMagooAZ Amazon Review (1) NOT GOOD (43 comments)

I post this having not read a single page of this book. I was interested in getting this book for my attorney wife. When looking at it on AMAZON.COM, I noticed that the post here is a copy of only ONE of TWO reviews the book has on Amazon.com. The other review is HORRIBLE. http://www.amazon.com/Locked-Down-Information-Security-Lawyers/product-reviews/1614383642/ref=cm_cr_dp_qt_hist_one?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0 Read/order with caution.

FTC Offers $50,000 For Best Way To Stop Robocalls

MrMagooAZ Re:You cannot fine that which does not have a numb (614 comments)

I love it when just one person doesn't need something, they assume we all don't need it. Anonymous calls are a real necessity in many instances. My wife is a probation officer who frequently works from home. She has to call scumbags and their scumbag relatives frequently to conduct interviews. They do not need to know our home phone number. I can imagine there are other scenarios where blocking the number is prudent.

The Copyright Nightmare of 'I Have a Dream'

MrMagooAZ Re:MLK's Family Received 800k from the Memorial (366 comments)

I wonder if this just applies to the memorial or if it also covers items to be sold in the gift shop? That's probably where the real money is.

FEMA Grounds Private Drones That Were Helping To Map Boulder Floods

MrMagooAZ MrMagooAZ writes  |  about 10 months ago

MrMagooAZ (595319) writes "An interesting article about a questionable reaction by FEMA in response to the flooding in Colorado. It seems a small firm was working free of charge with County officials to use drones to map the area and provide near-real-time maps of the flood damage. When FEMA took control of operations one of their first acts appears to have been to not only ground the drones, but threaten the operators. "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you?""
