Eric Holder Admits That, If It Wanted, NSA Could Collect Internet Searches & Emails Just Like Phone Metadata | Techdirt - http://www.techdirt.com/article...
Eric Holder Admits That, If It Wanted, NSA Could Collect Internet Searches & Emails Just Like Phone Metadata | Techdirt
"During a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing concerning oversight, Rep. Zoe Lofgren decided to quiz Attorney General Eric Holder about the federal government's surveillance efforts, starting off with a rather simple question. She notes that the bulk phone record collection program is considered to be legal by its supporters, based on Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows for the collection of "business records." So, she wonders, is there any legal distinction between phone records and, say, internet searches or emails? In other words, does the DOJ believe that it would be perfectly legal for the US government to scoop up all your search records and emails without a warrant? Holder clearly does not want to answer the question, and first tries to answer a different question, concerning the bulk phone records program, and how the administration is supposedly committed to ending it. But eventually he's forced to admit that there's no legal distinction" - Me from Bookmarklet

"#AfterSex selfies are the latest rage in hashtagged, instagrammed TMI pics posted online, and they’re every bit as smoldering as you’d expect from the title. Even the dogs have joined in on the fun, and the look of horror on their faces almost makes you forget about the nasty underlying concept of these far too freely shared self portraits. The internet is home to way too many selfies, so why oh why did somebody feel the need to start a new trend in selfies, one that not only shows you’re self obsessed but that you just finished getting it on? Your guess is as good as mine…" - Me from Bookmarklet

Pete's Dragon Reboot Gets A Director. Here's A Video From The Meeting - http://io9.com/petes-d...
"David Loweryhas been tapped to direct Disney's reboot of Pete's Dragon. Which is a odd choice, if you've seen his previous movie, Ain't them Bodies Saints. The Wrap is reporting that Lowery will not only be writing the screenplay for this update to Pete's Dragon — the Disney movie with a song about child abuse in it — but now he's kinda probably in talks to direct it as well. Time to go light a candle on the water, and cry out our feelings about this reboot." - Me from Bookmarklet
COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
So, #AmazonPrime won't work on #Nexus7 or #Chromecast; and Chromecast won't work on #KindleFire. Why can't Amazon & Google play nicely?
You have to switch your Amazon Prime settings to Flash, then it will work on Chromecast (though there are still "web bars" or, like, non-video web content is visible above and below the video). Oh, unless you go full-screen, then it's fine. - Meg VMeg
Yeah, I know there are ways to make it work on the computer. What I was mostly referencing (though, 140 characters didn't give me enough room) was the fact that the Prime mobile apps (iPad, etc.) don't support the Chromecast like the Netflix and HBOGo apps do. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Ah, yes. Very annoying. - Meg VMeg
They don't learn. They need to be like Netflix.. on everything.. everywhere. No limitations. That gives them an advantage. - Me
It should have Miracast built in. That acts more like a wireless HDMI cable. - Rodfather

Ageism Turned Silicon Valley Into a Hotbed for Male Plastic Surgery
"If I had $1 million for every time a founder told me "It's impossible to raise funding if you're not a twenty-something dude," I could lead their Series A round. The same bias applies to hiring. The ideal resume shouldn't be much longer than "Dropped out of Prestigious University."

Overweight People Less closer to Death than Underweight
"Not only obesity but being underweight is also a big threat for your health. According to the Canadian researchers, people who are underweight have the highest risk of dying than those who are underweight. While the risk of dying for obese people is 1.2 times, the risk of dying for those who are underweight is almost 1.8 times, the researchers said. Dr Joel Ray of St Michael’s Hospital and his team analysed as many as 51 studies related to Body Mass Index (BMI) and deaths from any cause. Moreover, the data on newborn weight and stillbirths in Ontario were also included for the study." - Me from Bookmarklet

Mysterious Tech Campus Dwarfs Facebook's Menlo Park Campus : Technology : Design & Trend
"A massive tech campus is scheduled to be built in San Jose, and the owner of this project remains a mystery. The mysterious campus was given the green light recently and the city officials have promised not to reveal the name of the technology company that will occupy this massive home. Could it be Microsoft? Or perhaps Apple or Google? The project was approved on Wednesday. The two million square foot project with a spaaaaaace for 8,000 to 10,000 employees spreads out over ten seven-story buildings. This campus will be twice the size of Facebook's Menlo Park campus and cost over $700 million." - Me from Bookmarklet

"Plagiocephaly is a neonatal disorder popularly known as “baby flat-head.” During gestation, a baby’s skull encounters resistance and grows a flattened surface. One common treatment is to wear a custom helmet that corrects the growth as the child ages. Perhaps they’re not pretty appliances, but Paula Strawn is here to fix that problem. Over the past 10 years, she’s painted 1,200 helmets with playful and fancy designs, from the works of Van Gogh to super heroes." - Me from Bookmarklet
Great work. We just stuck stickers on our son's when he had it for 3 months. - ronin

San Francisco Billboards Shame Drivers With Actual Photos of Them Texting | Adweek
"An outdoor ad campaign San Francisco is trying something novel to stop people from texting and driving: public shaming. Graphic designer Brian Singer has furtively been taking photos of people texting behind the wheel along the 101 Freeway and posting them to a website, Texting While in Traffic, or TWIT for short. (Singer says he's always a passenger, not a driver, when he snaps the photos.) Lately, Singer has been paying out of his own pocket to put some of the photos on billboards around town, Gizmodo reports. He says the number of offenders is outrageous. "For every nose picker, there's 20 texters," he estimates. He's not bothered by privacy concerns, either. "I don't think people driving on 101 have the expectation of privacy," Singer says. "All I'm really doing is taking photos in a public place."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Singer tried to get road-safety group to fund the project, but is going it alone for now with 11 billboards. He says he hopes the billboards freak people out enough to stop texting and driving—and even hopes other people start taking photos, which "could have a dramatic affect on people's behavior."" - Jessie
Yeah like that works well. - Me
I like some of the concept but I don't think it's the place of a private citizen to do this. - Jessie
I hope he gets some officers in the mix. Around here, most of the texting-while-driving people are LAPD. - Anika

Virtual Reality is going to change the world | notch.net - http://notch.net/2014...
"Fortunately, the rise of Oculus coincided with competitors emerging. None of them are perfect, but competition is a very good thing. If this means there will be more competition, and VR keeps getting better, I am going to be a very happy boy. I definitely want to be a part of VR, but I will not work with Facebook. Their motives are too unclear and shifting, and they haven’t historically been a stable platform. There’s nothing about their history that makes me trust them, and that makes them seem creepy to me. And I did not chip in ten grand to seed a first investment round to build value for a Facebook acquisition. I have the greatest respect for the talented engineers and developers at Oculus. It’s been a long time since I met a more dedicated and talented group of people. I understand this is purely a business deal, and I’d like to congratulate both Facebook and the Oculus owners. But this is where we part ways. If you want to experience Minecraft in VR, there’s an excellent mod that does this. It’s called Minecrift, and you can find it here." - Me from Bookmarklet
