Apple Said To Team With Visa, MasterCard On iPhone Wallet

koan Wonderful (185 comments)

The same corporation that is complicit with the NSA spying, obvious code errors to allow said spying, a variety of other "bugs" and then the recent "nude celeb photos" scandal show you how incompetent Apple is at security, why anyone in their right mind would use anything they make in a security required situation.

Apple Said To Team With Visa, MasterCard On iPhone Wallet

koan Really? Apple? (185 comments)

The corporation famous for its slave labor and environmentally damaging manufacturing policies?
The corporation that works with the NSA to cripple your phone and provides whatever is asked of it to the security forces.
Apple who can't even secure their own cloud and thus keep nude celeb photos safe.

In other words..... Crapple, we shit on your security and privacy.

An Accidental Wikipedia Hoax

koan Propaganda (189 comments)

All the errors whether intentional or not occur in printed media as well.
There seems to be another effort underway to discredit Wikipedia, I'm amused by the claims of errors and inaccuracies and frankly they pale in comparison to some I've seen in printed books.

The nice thing about Wikipedia is you can hop right on there and fix it.

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011

koan koan writes  |  more than 2 years ago

koan (80826) writes "The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011, introduced by Rep. Mike Rogers and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, allows companies or the government free rein to bypass existing laws in order to monitor communications, filter content, or potentially even shut down access to online services for "cybersecurity purposes." Companies are encouraged to share data with the government and with one another, and the government can share data in return. The idea is to facilitate detection of and defense against a serious cyber threat, but the language is so broad it could be used as a blunt instrument to attack websites like The Pirate Bay or WikiLeaks"
