A Chattanooga man of Nigerian descent says he was improperly detained for nearly three hours at the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport after an employee called police on him while he tried to rent a car. Adebayo Adeeko and his wife, Ashley Adeeko, are asking the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority and EAN Holdings LLC, which owns the rental car company, for $1.3 million in damages in connection with the April 13, 2018, incident, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Hamilton County Circuit Court. Adebayo Adeeko, who is black, and his wife, who is white, said the treatment amounted to an unreasonable search and seizure and was based on his race. The suit says Adebayo Adeeko, who was born in Nigeria and later became a naturalized U.S. citizen, had rented a minivan online and went to the airport with his wife and children to pick it up. While at the counter, the suit says, an employee asked him for identification and a form of payment. Adebayo Adeeko handed over a "valid, genuine, … [Read more...] about Lawsuit: Chattanooga airport officers detained man, his family because of his race while they were trying to rent a minivan

Welcome to the CNET 2019 directory of ID monitoring services.

Unfortunately, you may need one of these services soon, if you don't already.

There's rarely time to write about every cool science-y story that comes our way. So this year, we're running a special Twelve Days of Christmas series of posts, highlighting one story that fell through the cracks each day, from December 25 through January 5. Today: an intriguing recent book on the founding of Reddit. Entrepreneurs Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman famously founded Reddit as college roommates in 2005. Tech journalist Christine Lagorio-Chafkin's recent book, We Are the Nerds: The Birth and Tumultuous Life of Reddit, the Internet's Culture Laboratory, follows their sometimes rocky relationship as Reddit grew from a simple, user-directed front page for the Internet, to a scandal-rocked dominating force in online culture. As the subtitle implies, the site has been at the forefront of issues like the limits of free speech, privacy policies, and the unfettered spread of misinformation or "fake news," grappling with those thorny matters well before social media giants … [Read more...] about Book tells the inside story of how Reddit came to be the Internet’s “id”
A wide variety of contemporary Android smartphones is highly susceptible to being tricked by fake heads and unlocking themselves using one of the conceptually most banal attempts at spoofing conventional mobile facial recognition, Birmingham, United Kingdom-based tech company Backface reports. The firm's recent experiment saw numerous Android handsets confronted with 3D-printed heads resembling their owners and while everything from the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8 to the LG G7 ThinQ, and OnePlus 6 mistook the plastic module for an actual person and wrongly provided the attackers with full access to its contents, Apple's iPhone X resisted the scam. Don't use facial recognition if you care about security The study serves as yet another piece of evidence that mobile face unlock services are inherently insecure and should be circumvented by anyone truly interested in keeping the contents of their handsets away from prying eyes and fingers. The Apple iPhone X prevailed in the test … [Read more...] about Android Phones Have A Fake-Head Problem Apple Already Solved: Report
Produced by Alvin Patrick and Sarah Prior In the early morning hours of Oct. 17, 2010, Danroy "DJ" Henry, a Pace University football player, was shot dead by Pleasantville, N.Y., police officer Aaron Hess. That event triggered a seven-year journey for DJ's family as they searched for answers. "We're not anti-police," Danroy Henry, Sr., DJ's father, tells CBS News special correspondent James Brown. "We're just trying to understand what the facts tell us. Was it a justified shooting or was it not justified? Because if it wasn't – it was murder." "People believed fervently that they knew what happened," says Brian Sokoloff, who represents Hess. "And whenever you hear of a case like this, you can't believe first impressions." DJ was out celebrating with his teammates at a bar after a homecoming game when other patrons got into a fight. Police say that DJ was parked in a fire lane in front of the bar and when he was asked to move, he allegedly sped towards Officer Hess, propelling … [Read more...] about Defending DJ: Was the fatal shooting of a Pace University football player justified?
