Date Fairness.com Resource Read it at: Feb 17, 2012 Google Accused of Tracking Safari Usage Without Permission
QUOTE: A Stanford University graduate student has released a report that accuses Google and three other ad networks [Vibrant Media, Media Innovation Group, and PointRoll] of side-stepping the privacy settings on Apple's Safari browser to track usage on iPhones and Macs without permission.
PC Magazine Feb 16, 2012 Shocker: Facebook Users Hate Surprise Photo Tagging
QUOTE: nearly all Facebook users think it's rude when someone posts a photo or video of them without asking their permission first. In the survey of more than 800 Facebook users, 83 percent of respondents said it's just "common courtesy" to ask permission before posting someone else's photo or video online.
PC Magazine Jan 20, 2012 iBooks Author: You Work For Apple Now
QUOTE: Up until now, Apple has kept creative tools divorced from the means of distribution. You can choose how to sell the things you made with iWork, iWeb, Xcode, TextEdit, or any app the company has ever written, free or not. Apple has always made a distinction between enabling the creative process and selling the product of that process. Apple's iBooks Author erases that distinction.
PC Magazine Jul 11, 2011 Google+: Too many eggs in the Google basket
QUOTE: this isn’t necessarily wrong of Google — it’s just following the law, after all — but it perfectly illustrates a far larger and more pressing issue: Alex lost his Gmail account, his contacts list, and every email he’s ever sent or received, because he updated his Google Profile. These are two services that are only tenuously linked by the Google Taskbar, yet inexorably linked by the Google umbrella.
ExtremeTech Jul 06, 2011 How Did News of the World Hack Victims' Cell Phones?
QUOTE: The alleged actions of the tabloid's cell phone-hacking employees may beggar belief, Kevin Mahaffey, co-founder and CTO of mobile security firm Lookout, told PC Mag Wednesday. But their techniques for accessing other people's private mail boxes were probably very simple.
PC Magazine Apr 18, 2010 School Admin Takes Fifth Amendment in "Peeping Tom" Case
QUOTE: Lawyers for Harriton High School sophomore Blake Robbins are claiming that the teenager's school district has used built-in tracking software on students' laptops to take "thousands" of unauthorized images, "including pictures of Blake partially undressed and of Blake sleeping."
PC Magazine Mar 30, 2010 Software Discovery is Broken: SEO, fake reviews, and deceit have made it nearly impossible to find the software you're looking for.
QUOTE: If you're looking for any sort of utility on Google, you'll come across a ton of crappy and often useless (if not outright fraudulent) garbage that has risen to the top, thanks to what I like to call "active" SEO trickery. The normal SEO ideas used to improve search results are being actively modified on what seems like a day-by-day basis.
PC Magazine Mar 29, 2010 Reputation Isn't Dead
QUOTE: This week, TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington declared that "reputation is dead." Is that really the case, or is something else dying? Arrington made his case in a column entitled "Reputation Is Dead: It's Time To Overlook Our Indiscretions," which talked about a soon-to-launch Yelp-like service for people. It will let people, I assume, "review" other people without having to stand behind their statements.
PC Magazine Mar 02, 2010 Apple-HTC Suit Cites Multitouch, Gesture Patent
QUOTE: ...Apple announced that it had filed suit in the U.S. District Court in Delaware against HTC, alleging twenty instances of patent infringement....HTC has developed numerous touchscreen and other phones to rival the Apple iPhone. Of late, most have used the Android operating system...
PC Magazine Aug 11, 2009 RealNetworks Loses DVD Copying Decision
QUOTE: A federal judge has ruled in favor of Hollywood and against RealNetworks, declaring that the company's RealDVD program violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the terms of the DVD CSS license.
PC Magazine Nov 20, 2008 How I Slashed My Bills with Tech (Part 1): Time for some technological belt-tightening. How I cut $40 from my monthly phone bills within a few hours.
QUOTE: 1. Change your wireless carrier right now....2. Kill your land line....3. Get a bill assessment...
PC Magazine Nov 17, 2008 How to Reclaim Your Online Privacy
QUOTE: Have we as a culture abandoned our right to privacy? Absolutely not. While it's easy to give up, it's also easier than ever to take back your privacy. The new generation of Web browsers takes the possibility of your being snooped on seriously—and that's just the beginning. We'll show you how to go online and remain as stealthy as can be, so the chances of you being ID'd without your consent, or having your ID stolen, are slim to none.
PC Magazine Nov 17, 2008 Why Google Must Die: Once you learn how Google handles SEO, you see that getting the right results takes a miracle.
QUOTE: user flagging. Parked sites, for instance, could be flagged the way you flag spam on a message board or a miscategorized post on craigslist. The risk here is that creeps trying to shut down a specific site could swamp Google with false flags, so maintaining integrity would be difficult. People with their own agendas have already infiltrated and controlled aspects of craigslist and Wikipedia, unfortunately. On Wikipedia, for example, a group pushing the global-warming agenda prevents almost any post with contrary data or opinions, no matter how minor the point.
PC Magazine Nov 08, 2008 Apple Exec Hired From IBM Ordered to Stop Work
QUOTE: IBM contends that Apple will use Papermaster and its stake in P.A. Semi "to design microprocessors for incorporation in a variety of electronic devices, including handheld devices."....Papermaster's lawyers contend the IBM focuses on large enterprise applications for businesses while Apple focuses on consumer electronics.
PC Magazine Nov 05, 2008 Who Really Owns Digital Music?
QUOTE: Do people who decide that they want to trade up iPods have the right to sell their old ones without deleting the music? Are they committing a crime?
PC Magazine Nov 05, 2008 Google Wins the Presidential Election (So Does Obama)
QUOTE: if Lessig has Obama's ear, you might see more policies leaning towards "fair use" of other people's copyrighted works. That also dovetails with Google's agenda, which needs net neutrality and could use less content protection so it can take over the world by providing other people's content and its own advertising over other people's pipes.
PC Magazine Oct 06, 2008 Newest Net Scam: Phony Grassroots Campaigns
QUOTE: There's no such thing as grassroots anymore. Everything is manipulated and fake. Sound cynical? Read on.
PC Magazine Oct 01, 2008 Rob Glaser's RealDVD: Friend or Foe of Fair Use?
QUOTE: The war between RealNetworks and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) could be more important than you think.
PC Magazine Sep 30, 2008 Privacy 2.0: No Privacy at All
QUOTE: Google's limiting the length of time it keeps records on people? Big deal. Why the public puts up with any tracking whatsoever is a mystery to me.
PC Magazine Sep 18, 2008 Just Tell the Truth, Apple
QUOTE: Tech consumers can be very forgiving—if companies are honest about their failings.
