British Foreign Secretary on Surveillance Worries: '"Law Abiding Citizens Have Nothing To Fear"

Phizzle Something to consider? (404 comments)

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable SEARCHES and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized... I know its considered radicalism to quote from the Bill of Rights, but here it is.

3G and 4G USB Modems Are Security Threat, Black Hat Presenter Says

Phizzle Re:Security Threat? (50 comments)

2) There's a panopoly of devices that don't expose the machines to any of these vectors that runs $50-150 provided by vendors such as Zoom and Cradlepoint (in fact, it's what I use since it allows the LTE dongle (that doesn't have these "risks" by the way...) be able to switch between 3G and 4G seamlessly (Linux supports both, but NetworkManager doesn't support switching gears between the differing ways both modes are accessed yet...). The devices either have their own battery or not but allow multiple (more than a MiFi type device does...) devices on the connection.

Svartalf, what device are you using? Thanks!!

Bitcoin Hits New All-time High of $32

Phizzle I dont understand what the problem is... (339 comments)

They are REAL, I mine them, I bought them low 2-4 USD , I use them (a lot), I sold some 28-31USD, they are damn profitable... I really don't understand what the speculation is about their value, they work pretty damn well and unlike the US Dollar their buying power is going up and up. Best part is they are not being manipulated by corrupt governments or the creeps from the Federal Reserve Bank. People bagging on BTC are either trolling, under informed, or simply hating due to the lack of their own BTC :)

Asus Unveils Quad-Core Transformer Prime Tablet

Phizzle Really want something bigger than a 10in touchpad (274 comments)

I am willing and able to pay for a 12-14 inch touchpad if someone would make one, and I am sure I am not the only one. 7 inch is a joke, 10 inch is borderline functional, and I might as well beat the jokers to the punch with "THATS WHAT SHE SAID" :) Seriously, maybe instead of trying to be another metoo and knock off the iPad, how about a bigger touchpad?! This can be the itch that consumers dont even realize they have that some smart manufacturer can scratch. The marketing campaign practically writes itself with juvenile taglines like BIGGER THAN iPAD. Manufacturers seem to be afraid to cross the line in the sand drawn by Steve...

Is Apple Pushing Away Professionals?

Phizzle Most of Apples "Professional" software... (556 comments)

...is not from Apple... Turning the "Final Cut Pro" nerfing into a broad argument for a dumbing down conspiracy is a bit much. The one thing that Apple has done consistently over the years is treat all of their software developers like competitors and all of the 3rd party hardware developers like enemies. The path of Apples success is littered with corpses of once supporters like Supermac, Radius, RasterOps and many others.

Research proves Keyboards are not safe!

Phizzle Phizzle writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Phizzle writes "Security and Cryptography Laboratory at the Swiss Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) doctoral students demonstrated four successfull techniques for sniffing keystrokes off various keyboards, including laptops, by analysing the electromagnetic signals produced by every key press. Not entirely new concept, but these guys were able to get data from 20m away. Time for Tempest Grade keyboards?!"
