Apple Can Extract Texts, Photos, Contacts From Locked iPhones

kurowski iMessage? (202 comments)

"iMessage" is a message transport. The app is "Messages". The document from Apple specifically says "SMS": it does not mention either Messages or iMessage. While it's possible that Apple leaves iMessages unencrypted on the device, it would be surprising given how much trouble they go through to protect then in transit. So while this document doesn't explicitly say iMessages are safe, it also doesn't say they're vulnerable.

Ask Slashdot: Laptop + DSLR Backpacks

kurowski Crumpler Sinking Barge (282 comments)

It's big enough to carry everything you've mentioned, but no bigger than necessary. It comfortably distributes the weight when fully loaded, and is unbelievably durable. I've used mine on a daily basis for four years, including several cross-country and international trips, and it still looks new. Worth every penny. Highly recommended.

Bluetooth Headset Roundup

kurowski Re:Bluespoon AX2 (194 comments)

i've been a bluespoon user for years- first the AX and now the AX2. while they've worked great with all my Nokia phones, i just switched to an LG CU320 and if i use the bluespoon with it, people on the other end experience intolerable echo. so, YMMV.

Carbon calculator with social footprint reduction

kurowski kurowski writes  |  more than 7 years ago

kurowski writes "Social-networking site MakeMeSustainable has put together the first carbon footprint calculator that might help people make a real difference in their environmental impact. Yahoo points out the ongoing carbon footprint management: "because you can track your expenditures over time, it's easy to see the results of simple actions like changing your bulbs." Wired says the site's true goal is "building an environmentally conscious online community that's driven towards action", which is apparent in the social-networking features: apparently Red Sox fans are more eco-friendly than Yankees fans). The site also lets you track your friends and neighbors, which is sure to encourage users to keep up with the Jones's next door."
