Christmas came on Friday, June 22 this year—that is, if you’re a privacy and surveillance law nerd. After deliberating the decision for months, the Supreme Court handed down its opinion in Carpenter v. United States, a case in which the court was asked to answer the question: is it OK for police to obtain 127-days worth of someone’s cell-site location information (CSLI) without a warrant? In a 5-4 decision, the court found that the answer was “no.” This is clearly a landmark step toward stronger privacy protections, and the opinion builds on two other related cases that the court unanimously decided in 2012 (Jones v. United States) and 2014 (Riley v. California). A majority of the justices clearly articulated something that many of us intuit: that “tracking a person’s past movements... are detailed, encyclopedic, and effortlessly compiled.” In other words, long-term location data is “unique” when compared against other types … [Read more...] about Supreme Court surveillance opinion nudges us to think nationally, act locally

caption Aleksandr Kogan, who created a Facebook app that harvested data and gave it to Cambridge Analytica. source Business Insider Facebook signed a non-disclosure agreement with Aleksandr Kogan, the data scientist at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal. Kogan first referenced the NDA while giving evidence to UK parliamentarians on Tuesday about how an app he built gathered users’ Facebook data and handed it to Cambridge Analytica. This is the first time we’ve heard about the NDA. Facebook confirmed that it had a confidential agreement with Kogan, signed when he provided records showing he had deleted the app data. It suggests Kogan signed the agreement in the first half of 2016 after The Guardian reported the existence of his app. Aleksandr Kogan, the data scientist at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, signed a … [Read more...] about Facebook confirmed it has a confidential agreement with Aleksandr Kogan, the man at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica scandal
CHIPMAKER Intel warned Chinese firms about the Meltdown and Spectre processor vulnerabilities before informing the US government, according to the Wall Street Journal. The report, which cites unnamed people familiar with the matter, claims that select Intel customers, including China's Alibaba and Lenovo, were made aware of the design flaws before the US government was notified. This has fuelled concerns that the Chinese government may have known about the vulnerabilities before Intel disclosed them to the American government and the public, and could have theoretically exploited the holes to intercept data before patches were available. An Alibaba spokesperson told the WSJ that the notion the company may have shared threat intelligence with the Chinese government was "speculative and baseless", but this doesn't rule out officials intercepting details without Alibaba's knowledge. Lenovo said Intel's information was protected by a non-disclosure … [Read more...] about Intel warned Chinese firms about Meltdown and Spectre flaws ‘before notifying US gov’

Intel is better CPU-wise but even the latest Baytrail can't beat the Adreno 330. Their CPUs are also substantially more expensive. posted on 20 Oct 2013, 20:41 4 3. Shatter (Posts: 2036; Member since: 29 May 2013) Intel and AMD are working on killing arm. If you like performance/battery life you will go with an intel phone. If you want a cheap device or powerful graphics it will be AMD or whatever Nvidia puts out. X86 is a powerful platform, it killed everything off in the desktop/laptop market that was a competitor. It is now in consoles and will soon spread to mobile. Nvidia Desktop CPUs are coming in 2015, its only a matter of time before more switch. 7. woodshop20 (Posts: 459; Member … [Read more...] about Comments for : Lenovo signs non-disclosure agreement in advance of BlackBerry bid; what are Lenovo’s intentions?
