Couple things

Just posting links to a couple of things, since I don’t really have time to go into any depth about them right now:

http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/04/ispy-software-can-read-texts-and-steal-passwords-with-its-little/ – The gist of it is either turn off magnification of letters on your smartphone or don’t login to pretty much anything in public.  You really do not know who is watching.

http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/05/peter-jackson-reveals-the-red-epic-secrets-behind-the-hobbit-vi/ – Want to know more about the complications and such in filming The Hobbit from Peter Jackson himself?  Check it out.

http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/06/doj-stingray-cellphone-tracking-device-falls-under-fourth-amend/ – Wish I had more time on this one.  Should users have a “reasonable expectation” of privacy when using a cell phone?  The Department of Justice doesn’t think so, but one man fought it….and sorta won.  Check out the link for more on this interesting case.
