Just another case of It’s Not Fair

It never ceases to amaze me!

At what point do the facts become irrelevant?

The young man with a less than admirable past gets into a situation where he is firing at another man and then confronts police when caught. Firing on the police officers who fire back and kill him. Another case of bad decisions.

Douse’s aunt, Quwana Barcene, told the New York Post the boy was an only child.

“It’s not fair. It was my sister’s only child. You shouldn’t have to bury your child,” she said. @link

Now a family member says that it is not fair!? Are you serious? How about … where the heck was momma, the aunt and all the adults  and all the concern during his last episodes of being stupid? Kind of a breakdown in the family structure doncha think? Apparently it was all just a big mistake. NO! It was a very,very poor decision on HIS part! So enough of the crap and how about taking care of your family before it gets to this point.

Life sucks! But if you make poor choices the consequences are sometimes fatal.

You gotta be smarter than your phone! And your car!

Hey Buddy! Track This!

Think about what you do with your new “Smart Phone”! And even your “Smart car” It could cause you some pain and agony. Why? Well, pay attention. I won’t own a car with OnStar, or it’s siblings and don’t own a smart phone. Am I paranoid? Don’t think so! Am I concerned about my privacy? Yep!

Picard uses Android phone

You would think that after a information privacy skirmish on Capitol Hill where a couple of major shopping malls, one in NJ and one in CA, were attempting to implement a system tracking shoppers’ movements by monitoring the signals from their cell phones. Home Depot and JC Penny are also on this track. People would get the hint that these guys have way too much access to your info and personal life patterns. Pardon the pun but see a pattern here? Gotta be hit up side your head with your phone? Hope not!

This is pretty much in the same area as OnStar basicly telling the US government that they were not obligated to shut off the OnStar units once you finish your contract or don’t pay your bill. Let’s see, they know that your air bags have gone off, they know your location, they can contact you in the car, they can call assistance.. Sorry way too much info for them to know about me! And, by the way, are they listening in? Don’t know! They said they wouldn’t. Just asking.

After its decision to update its privacy policy, and continue to collect data from cars even after a user has unsubscribed from its service, public outcry has caused OnStar to rescind the privacy policy update.

It looks like the phone makers are not on the up and up. Ya Think?! Sprint and Verizon, now there are two upstanding citizens! HTC and Samsung a couple of major players.

An Android developer recently discovered a clandestine application called Carrier IQ built into most smartphones that doesn’t just track your location; it secretly records your keystrokes, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Is it time to put on a tinfoil hat? That depends on how you feel about privacy.

And apparently after being exposed the Carrier IQ group threatened the whisleblower but after the EFF got involved retracted and apologized.

Carrier IQ, a maker of software to monitor smartphone performance, has withdrawn a legal attack against Trevor Eckhart and apologized after the Electronic Frontier Foundation came to the security researcher’s defense.

Eckhart published his research last week, saying that some Samsung and HTC Android phones include Carrier IQ’s software, and that Verizon and Sprint use it. He documented details of what the Carrier IQ software logs, then leveled a heavy charge by calling the software a rootkit–a program that gets privileged access to a computing device but that hides its presence.

And this is just the stuff that has been uncovered! Whoa,Baby! Thank you Senator Al Franken / MN, for your diligence!
