Encryption

Looks like the government is at it again now that Apple has come out stating that they are not going to roll over and provide a master key to their iPhone software. Really NSA? How about the part where the terrorist didn’t use encryption in these attacks. European media outlets are reporting that the location of a raid conducted on a suspected safe house Wednesday morning was extracted from a cellphone, apparently belonging to one of the attackers, found in the trash outside the Bataclan concert hall massacre.

Privacy Wars

A recently article from the guardian shows that your iPhone keeps record of everywhere you go. Many of your know that I’m an iPhone user and supporter as I have a often neglected iPhone App site. You’re probably thinking to yourself right now, great, another fanboy coming to Apple’s rescue. WRONG! What the fuck Apple? Seriously, what the fuck? Is there a good reason for keeping track of this data?

New Hardware

Sometimes its just nice to get something new. The big boss and I had been talking for a while about getting a new computer for home. The last one we purchased was a white MacBook Core Duo (2GHz with 1GB of RAM) The ram has been maxed out at 2GB a few years ago and I beat the hell out of that thing. Its been through major development projects over its 4 year lifespan.

Prediction Fail

Its safe to say, my prediction on the Verizon event was completely wrong. Verizon announced the iPhone4 for their network today. So, will you be switching? Personally, I’m going to be waiting a bit since I just upgraded to the iPhone4 when it was announced. When the wife and I get closer to our contracts, I have a feeling that I will be a Verizon customer. Hopefully LTE will be out by then in Des Moines.
