Roomba Pursuing Plan to Share 3D Maps of Your Private Home with Google, Apple and Amazon Reader 08/11/2017 (Fri) 16:02:12 Id: 04509f [Preview] No. 1350 [Reply]

Everywhere you turn these days, new technology seeks to undermine both constitutional guarantees and basic assumptions of privacy, when you would normally and reasonably expect that you’re not being spied upon.

After all, it’s one thing to put your entire life online in a series of social media posts; that happens by choice. But when devices you buy for one purpose turn out to serve the additional purpose of invading your privacy, that’s a problem.

As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, the maker of the autonomous vacuuming robot, Roomba, has just revealed plans for his next generation of devices to include technology to gather 3D floor plans on your home and then transmit them to third parties. (Related: Wikileaks reveals the extent of the CIA hacking capabilities; personal devices are no longer safe or private.)

The machines have been in homes for years now, bouncing harmlessly off walls and furniture in their quest to keep your floors clean. But now they will be designed to collect more than just dirt:

That data is of a spatial variety: The dimensions of a room as well as distances between sofas, tables, lamps and other home furnishings.

To a tech industry eager to push ‘smart’ homes controlled by a variety of Internet-enabled devices, that space is the next frontier.

Already connected devices like cameras for home security, smart-home lighting and thermostats are on the market. But the CEO of Roomba manufacturer iRobot Corp., Colin Angle, says even those devices are still ‘dumb’ when it comes to gathering an understanding of their overall surrounding environment.

So he believes that mapping technology which currently helps guide Roombas throughout homes could be changed to accommodate gathering specific home dimensions, and so he’s basing the company’s strategy on that concept moving forward.

Again. Agree with you. Those things are evil. But don't ask a normie to choose between NFL on wide screen and his privacy.
But get him a cheap router that filters evil samsung/lg/apple/advertisers ip ranges and routes the tv via a vpn, (And maybe shows him a nice graphic on his tablet of what shit his tv is attempting to ex filtrate) and maybe they'll opt for the extra privacy on the 5'000$ TV.

15) This is bad advice, if you've lost control of your webcam, then someone already has root on your device. (And you can't disable mics and cameras on most laptops)
Instead, give them a secure OS, or a device that lights up when a usb port start being more heavily used. Or hell just a program that pops up a message warning you that the camera is in use:

Separate email for everything.
This is good advice. But again. Imagine a normie doing this. Signing up for a new email address is painful.

Here's a better idea. Set up a free email server for family and friends. Give every account a free domain name. Route every email for one domain to their inbox. Tell them their email address is whateverthefuckyouwantitdoesntmatterlol@theircustomdomain.com

Again. Make it EASY. Just give them a url, a password. And make it easy for them to add it to their phone or existing gmail or whatever (Yea i know, google evilz, etc, but worry about easy first)

14) Free domain names you can use for that: .TK / .ML / .GA / .CF / .GQ

http://www.freenom.com/en/freeandpaiddomains.html

It's possible to preconfigure android apps right? Preconfigure a free email client with this and make it work out the box.
The normie will use it. And will be tracked less across sites. Less targeted spam!
This also means, if their password is leaked on one site (the normie will always just use one really bad password, get over it), attackers wont be able to match it to any other sites. (Most sites rate limit login attempts, so a dictionary attack containing the normies pw isn't as bad anymore)

13) Useless advice. Human mind is bad at memorizing random letters and numbers.

Instead. Generate a crazy complex password for someone, and sharpie it on the back of their credit card. Or on house keys.
It's written down.
They always have it on them.
They won't lose it.
It's super complex.
If they do lose it, who will know wtf are the numbers for?

And encryption? Just turn it on for them. Normies hate dialogue boxes. Make it easy. On/Off button. Simple. Otherwise they won't do it. The brain shuts down when they hear the word. Don't tell. Do.

Jewish Millionaire Lottery Winner Charged With Child Rape, Plays Victim Reader 08/12/2017 (Sat) 11:13:21 Id: c34a64 [Preview] No. 1370 [Reply]
=+90 Year Old Jewish Lottery Winner Charged With Child Rape==

>Attorneys say that 90 year old Peter Kaczmarczyk, who is both a Jewish-Polish Veteran of the Second World War and a retired cab driver, was already an old man when he won nearly $8 million in the lottery in 2010.

>Prosecutors say that Kaczmarczyk’s crimes were horrific, which led to his prosecution on multiple charges of child rape, after a woman claimed to recognize him as her childhood tormentor.

>However Kaczmarczyk is now instead playing  the victim, what some would say are “typical tricks”, from a pedophile accused of sexually assaulting a child.

>His claim is that he is terminally ill, and unable to attend his own trial, which was supposed to have started this week. His lawyer told a judge “it would probably kill him” according to court records.

>The story goes back to when he won lottery prize in 2010, a now 65 year old woman recognized Kaczmarczyk’s picture on the lottery website, and then layer went to police.

>This was her mother’s former boyfriend when she was a child, according to the court records.

>She said for years Kaczmarczyk sexually assaulted her dating back in the 1950s and ’60s, before she ran away from home as a result of the abuses.

>At the time of the alleged assaults, Kaczmarczyk would have been between the ages of 29 and 41.

Technotronic Subjugation: How 'Smartphones' Destroyed a Generation Reader 08/13/2017 (Sun) 05:25:04 Id: b14afb [Preview] No. 1375 [Reply]
Technotronic Subjugation: How 'Smartphones' Destroyed a Generation

http://archive.is/e1h8C
https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/has-the-smartphone-destroyed-a-generation/534198/

One day last summer, around noon, I called Athena, a 13-year-old who lives in Houston, Texas. She answered her phone—she’s had an iPhone since she was 11—sounding as if she’d just woken up. We chatted about her favorite songs and TV shows, and I asked her what she likes to do with her friends. “We go to the mall,” she said. “Do your parents drop you off?,” I asked, recalling my own middle-school days, in the 1980s, when I’d enjoy a few parent-free hours shopping with my friends. “No—I go with my family,” she replied. “We’ll go with my mom and brothers and walk a little behind them. I just have to tell my mom where we’re going. I have to check in every hour or every 30 minutes.”

Those mall trips are infrequent—about once a month. More often, Athena and her friends spend time together on their phones, unchaperoned. Unlike the teens of my generation, who might have spent an evening tying up the family landline with gossip, they talk on Snapchat, the smartphone app that allows users to send pictures and videos that quickly disappear. They make sure to keep up their Snapstreaks, which show how many days in a row they have Snapchatted with each other. Sometimes they save screenshots of particularly ridiculous pictures of friends. “It’s good blackmail,” Athena said. (Because she’s a minor, I’m not using her real name.) She told me she’d spent most of the summer hanging out alone in her room with her phone. That’s just the way her generation is, she said. “We didn’t have a choice to know any life without iPads or iPhones. I think we like our phones more than we like actual people.”

I’ve been researching generational differences for 25 years, starting when I was a 22-year-old doctoral student in psychology. Typically, the characteristics that come to define a generation appear gradually, and along a continuum. Beliefs and behaviors that were already rising simply continue to do so. Millennials, for instance, are a highly individualistic generation, but individualism had been increasing since the Baby Boomers turned on, tuned in, and dropped out. I had grown accustomed to line graphs of trends that looked like modest hills and valleys. Then I began studying Athena’s generation.

Around 2012, I noticed abrupt shifts in teen behaviors and emotional states. The gentle slopes of the line graphs became steep mountains and sheer cliffs, and many of the distinctive characteristics of the Millennial generation began to disappear. In all my analyses of generational data—some reaching back to the 1930s—I had never seen anything like it.

The allure of independence, so powerful to previous generations, holds less sway over today’s teens.

At first I presumed these might be blips, but the trends persisted, across several years and a series of national surveys. The changes weren’t just in degree, but in kind. The biggest difference between the Millennials and their predecessors was in how they viewed the world; teens today differ from the Millennials not just in their views but in how they spend their time. The experiences they have every day are radically different from those of the generation that came of age just a few years before them.

Of course, putting off the responsibilities of adulthood is not an iGen innovation. Gen Xers, in the 1990s, were the first to postpone the traditional markers of adulthood. Young Gen Xers were just about as likely to drive, drink alcohol, and date as young Boomers had been, and more likely to have sex and get pregnant as teens. But as they left their teenage years behind, Gen Xers married and started careers later than their Boomer predecessors had.

Gen X managed to stretch adolescence beyond all previous limits: Its members started becoming adults earlier and finished becoming adults later. Beginning with Millennials and continuing with iGen, adolescence is contracting again—but only because its onset is being delayed. Across a range of behaviors—drinking, dating, spending time unsupervised— 18-year-olds now act more like 15-year-olds used to, and 15-year-olds more like 13-year-olds. Childhood now stretches well into high school.

Why are today’s teens waiting longer to take on both the responsibilities and the pleasures of adulthood? Shifts in the economy, and parenting, certainly play a role. In an information economy that rewards higher education more than early work history, parents may be inclined to encourage their kids to stay home and study rather than to get a part-time job. Teens, in turn, seem to be content with this homebody arrangement—not because they’re so studious, but because their social life is lived on their phone. They don’t need to leave home to spend time with their friends.

If today’s teens were a generation of grinds, we’d see that in the data. But eighth-, 10th-, and 12th-graders in the 2010s actually spend less time on homework than Gen X teens did in the early 1990s. (High-school seniors headed for four-year colleges spend about the same amount of time on homework as their predecessors did.) The time that seniors spend on activities such as student clubs and sports and exercise has changed little in recent years. Combined with the decline in working for pay, this means iGen teens have more leisure time than Gen X teens did, not less.

So what are they doing with all that time? They are on their phone, in their room, alone and often distressed.

> responsibilities of adulthood
...which is code for "subjugation to your parents' authority for life". There is no tradition of adulthood, until very recently all we had was men and incomplete men, not children as their own class that you graduate out of once you learn to serve the globalists.

This is all just subterfuge to pretend that previous men didn't live in autocratic communes, but instead in the kike-promoted Stepford Wife dreamland. That never happened, the 1950's ad-scape is pure fiction. A more correct depiction of how humans have always been living is Road to Perdition. Middle ages barely ever ended, the only change we invented was advertising and other such propaganda.

Responsibility is not such a kind thing that all you have to do is obey the rules and things will work out. Everybody who yammers on about responsibility thinks they're the person who's entitled to be responded to, but they rarely are. What they are is children, trying to tattle to a parent who doesn't even exist.

Money can never be absolute, that's just another pipe dream. No, not even gold.

No More Bailouts Under Trump: Molina To Exit Two Obamacare Markets by End of 2017 Reader 08/13/2017 (Sun) 05:47:23 Id: fb697a [Preview] No. 1380 [Reply]
Molina Healthcare Inc (MOH.N) said on Wednesday it would stop selling Obamacare plans in Utah and Wisconsin, joining a slew of health insurers that have exited Obamacare markets amid uncertainty over the healthcare law.

Shares of the company, which pulled its full-year earnings and adjusted earnings forecast, were down 8.8 percent at $60.99 in after-hours trading.

The health insurer said it would exit the markets effective Dec. 31 and would also reduce coverage in Washington. The company specializes in Obamacare and Medicaid programs for low-income and poor people.

Molina and other insurers are facing an upheaval in their health insurance businesses due to uncertainty over the healthcare legislation as Republican lawmakers seek to follow through on their promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare.

The health insurer said it would raise premiums by 55 percent in the remaining markets in 2018, adding that the increase would have been only 30 percent had the government committed on making the subsidy payments.

Insurers have asked the government to commit to making the $8 billion in payments for 2018.

President Donald Trump on Monday took aim at insurers by threatening to cut the healthcare subsidy payments that make Obamacare plans affordable.

Molina said it would lay off about 1,500 corporate and health plans employees, or about 7 percent of its total workforce, by the end of the year as part of the restructuring.

The health insurer posted a net loss of $230 million, or $4.10 per share, in the second quarter ended June 30, compared with a profit of $33 million, or 58 cents per share, a year earlier.

Trump Wrong About (Real) Jobs Increasing: Part Time Jobs Are Up, Full-time Middle Class Jobs Are Way Down Reader 08/13/2017 (Sun) 05:38:26 Id: 155a30 [Preview] No. 1379 [Reply]
On the surface the July jobs report was solid, with 209K jobs added, more than the expected, as the recent auto sector slowdown appears to skip the labor market (for now), with Trump quick to take credit for the report.

Excellent Jobs Numbers just released - and I have only just begun. Many job stifling regulations continue to fall. Movement back to USA!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 4, 2017

However, digging through the numbers reveals some troubling features: while the Household survey reported that an impressive 345K jobs were added, more than 50% higher than the Establishment survey, the bulk of these jobs was part-time. According to the BLS, in July 393,000 part time jobs were added, offset by a drop of 54,000 full-time workers.

This was the biggest increase in part-time jobs going back to September 2016.

Having monopolized the retail sector (and branching out to others), is Amazon - which recently hired 10 part time jobs for every full time job - starting to dominate the lobs report next?

Wikileaks Reveals "Dumbo": Tool That Allows CIA To Shut Down Cameras And Microphones Reader 08/13/2017 (Sun) 05:09:42 Id: 8a4a27 [Preview] No. 1374 [Reply]
Since Wikileaks began releasing classified CIA documents back in March as part of its “Vault 7” series of leaks, purportedly the largest document dump in the agency’s history, it has publicly unveiled programs with innocent sounding names like “Marble”, “Scribbles” and “Archimedes” that the agency employs to help execute its operations, or to cover its tracks.

On Thursday, the group released the 19th installment in its series by publishing a series of documents detailing how the agency uses a custom-designed hacking exploit called “Dumbo” to destroy, or manufacture, evidence during field operations, according to a Wikileaks press release.

The CIA filed a request that such a tool back in 2012, according to a powerpoint presentations describing what capabilities it would need.

In a field guide for the tool, dated July 2015, the agency says “the intelligence community has identified a need…for a capability to suspend processes utilizing webcams and corrupt any video recordings that could compromise a PAG deployment.”

Once installed on a computer running the Windows operating system via a thumb drive, Dumbo identifies webcams and microphones and stops them from recording. The program notifies its operator of any files that were actively being written so that they can be corrupted or deleted, according to the field manual.

“Dumbo works by discovering which processes have access to the physical camera device and uses that information to corrupt video files. In some instances, programs emulate a camera input to other programs; such is the case with Fujitsu’s YouCam.exe. When this occurs, YouCam.exe will have control of the actual webcam, and feed input to other processes that record images to files as needed. In this scenario, Dumbo will suspend YouCam.exe but will not be able to detect the other processes to which YouCam.exe is feeding images. Although the camera will not be able to record additional frames, Dumbo will not be able to corrupt files that were written to prior, as it is unaware of the processes writing the video files. If the operator sees a process using the camera device, but Dumbo detects no files being written, the operator should manually search for video files.

In some instances, video recording software has the ability to detect it is not responding, and will restart itself; such is the case with iSpy.exe. When Dumbo detects a process using a camera device, it also claims control of the device. If the recording software were to restart itself, it would no longer be able to access the camera until Dumbo exits. In the case of iSpy,although the program may restart, it will be unable to record any additional frames; it will appear as if it was unable to access the camera, due to it already being in use.”

Trump Threatens to End ObamaCare Bailouts Reader 08/09/2017 (Wed) 14:38:15 Id: 17ce11 [Preview] No. 1334 [Reply]
President Trump on Saturday threatened to end key payments to insurance companies made under Obamacare if a repeal and replace bill is not passed.

“After seven years of ‘talking’ Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!” the president wrote in a tweet.

“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!” he added.
