  Google Blogger Widget
Just testing:

Coming back after an absence, triggered by seeing the new google blogger widget off the new google mac blog, and also the availability of a gaping void widget to add to the site. Convenience and something interesting at the same time! Who am I to resist. What you see below is the default text put in place by the blogger widget.

  Protect Personal and Financial Privacy: Cell Phone Privacy Sold for $110
Protect Personal and Financial Privacy: Cell Phone Privacy Sold for $110: "Chicago Sun Times Crime Reporter Frank Main bombshell privacy story (linked above) tells of a web site called LocateCell (one of dozens of similar services) where the cell phone records of any phone can be purchased for $110 for a list, plus $50 more for length of calls. "
This business model pretty much guarantees the introduction of legislation.

It was pretty cold this morning in Montreal, so I thought I'd post this shot from a trip to Florida in November.

Remembrance of warmer times.

Internet News Article | Reuters.co.uk: " Forgetting computer passwords is an everyday source of frustration, but a solution may literally be at hand -- in the form of computer chip implants. With a wave of his hand, Amal Graafstra, a 29-year-old entrepreneur based in Vancouver, Canada, opens his front door. With another, he logs onto his computer. Tiny radio frequency identification (RFID) computer chips inserted into Graafstra's hands make it all possible."

Is it just me or does this strike anyone else as a two edged sword. Never mind the obtrusive advertising of the "Minority Report" base on retina scans, think what marketers and security staff can do with this one!

  Federal agents' visit was a hoax: 12/ 24/ 2005
Federal agents' visit was a hoax: 12/ 24/ 2005: "The UMass Dartmouth student who claimed to have been visited by Homeland Security agents over his request for 'The Little Red Book' by Mao Zedong has admitted to making up the entire story.

The 22-year-old student tearfully admitted he made the story up to his history professor, Dr. Brian Glyn Williams, and his parents, after being confronted with the inconsistencies in his account."

Although there was suspicion from the start that this was a hoax, the original reporter stuck by his story, until this latest addendum by the student.

Thanks to Bruce Shneier for this blog post on this.
