thetechpete: Imagine paying extra to visit Facebook. Imagine not being able to check your tweets with your smartphone while on the go. Imagine wireless carriers charging us to do even more stuff that costs them little extra to do (like they already do with texting). This is horrible and they’re thinking about considering it. I remember back in the AOL days when AOL used to charge X amount of...

Even GlennBeckToday.com isn't safe from Anonymous!
stfuglennbeck: Anonymous takes down Glenn Beck Today.com it’s even got the latest anonymous video embedded in it. FUCK YEAH! Here’s a screencap I took at about 4:07pm ET today: Of course, now Beck will whine and moan about how he was hacked and use that to his advantage and his troops will rally. As much as I enjoy seeing hacks like this happen, ultimately, sadly,...

Meant to blog about this a while back: Nazis Were Given ‘Safe Haven’ in U.S., Report Says A secret history of the United States government’s Nazi-hunting operation concludes that American intelligence officials created a “safe haven” in the United States for Nazis and their collaborators after World War II, and it details decades of clashes, often hidden, with other nations over war criminals...

The USG trumps up threat then tells us how they're...
This is something I’ve noticed the USG and the FBI doing for a while. See if you can notice what’s wrong with the following cutting from a November 28, 2010 article at LATimes.com reporting on a 19 year-old naturalized American (originally from Somalia) who wanted to blow up a bunch of Americans (I’ll add italics to make it obvious): “The threat was very real,”...

I noticed this over the past few weeks as I read various coverage of iPhone apps that Apple was and was not letting get through. Check out these headlines: Radio Station Apps: No Longer Welcome in the App Store Apple Bans Android Magazine From The App Store Why Does Apple Make Donation Apps So Hard? In short, Apple seems to be using it’s position to stop certain information from getting...

Yes, that’s right, Assange’s SWISS bank account has been closed—there’s buckets of irony there. How many international criminals have used Swiss bank accounts for hiding their money?? And here comes Assange who, apparently, lied on his application regarding a Geneva residence. I’m sure this lie coming to light now has nothing to do with international pressure. ...

My favorite is how he admits that a goodly chunk of the remaining docs to be published refer to UFOs. :) And no, it doesn’t sound like there’s anything really “good” in there like admissions of cover-ups or the like. :(

This is kind of insanely amazing—yet I bet it got buried under news of WikiLeaks.

How Ma Bell Shelved the Future for 60 Years →
Gizmodo’s Tim Wu blogs about how innovation was stopped in its tracks, effectively, due to capitalist interests. Funny how we’re all told capitalism is great for innovation. Too bad that’s only true until innovation might damage the current business model. Take the example of the answering machine that existed in the office of a Bell Labs engineer… in 1934.
More Reasons Why Free Speech Trumps Government...
If this week’s post on EFFYOU.org didn’t give you enough reasons to support WikiLeaks (or at least understand why they are important) here are a few more reasons I’ve snipped from another great post from underpaidgenius: Jeremy Geelan contacted me about the Wikileaks mess, and wanted my two cents. His piece is an interesting juxtapositioning of cloud computing and political...
EFFYOU.org: EFFYOU to anyone who thinks WikiLeaks...
From effyou.org: The whole problem with absolute power is that there can’t possibly be a check or balance placed on it. In case you haven’t noticed, America has no check or balance on it currently and hasn’t had one in quite a while. No military is stronger than America’s and only a few economic powers could ever hope to compete with the US economy (despite it’s recent and huge collapse). ...
