    Moto X Smartphone

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXyCbrdQEyA This phone will always be listening.. As if people weren't concerned before about the Kinect watching and listening to you.. now your smartphone will listen in on everything as it waits to hear its voice commands. I would only like this feature if I had the option to turn it off. Thats a nice feature.. shake the camera to enable camera and then take a quick pic.. at least until you start jogging.. then your phone will be taking a bunch of pictures of the inside of your pants. http://www.motorola.com/us/consumers/Moto-X/moto-x,en_US,pg.html Heres a couple articles about it: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2422605,00.asp http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2422625,00.asp In my opinion, I would never buy this phone. Mostly because it is a Motorola.. and this is why I would never buy a Motorola: http://www.ancientclan.com/blog/1/entry-368-this-is-why-i-will-never-own-another-motorola-phone/ So what do you guys think? Decent phone? Great new features? Iphone Siri ripoff?
  2. The Trailer doesn't show much of anything except for the title of the game. I liked Firefly and the movie Serenity.. I'm not certain I'll care for a smartphone game though. I doubt it will ever get as popular as Angry Birds, but it could still be fun if its done right. Source: https://www.keepflying.com/

  4. http://www.npr.org/blogs/alltechconsidered/2013/07/15/201490397/How-Hackers-Tapped-Into-My-Verizon-Cellphone-For-250 I originally heard this story back in July and I figured I'd post a topic about it. Cellphone companies have to ensure that people can use their service in their homes, but many newer homes have great roofing insulation.. so good that it blocks RF signals aka cellphone service as a side effect. So the cellphone companies made a product called a femtocell to give people in blackout areas or low signal areas full cellphone service. My brother had one of these when he was using Sprint. It connected to his high speed internet and he got a much better signal. These femtocells can be bought in electronic stores and online.. The range on these are small.. If someone is going to spy on you, it'll most likely be a neighbor in an apartment building where more people could be affected. Your phone will not show any roaming bars or give you any notification that you are on a femtocell (some might give you a double dial tone but only when making a call, not receiving one).. the phone will look like its on a regular connection and you will never know if someone is reading all your texts or recording your calls. Now think about how easily the police or NSA can listen in..
  5. . Basically as long as you have WIFI turned on, your phone will recognize WIFI networks in the area. Even if you do not connect to any WIFI networks, those networks can see your phone and just like your phone can recognize a network is in the area... But these networks will record your MAC address and can then determine your position in the store, watch where you are going and know everything you are looking at as long as you are within range of it. Turn your WIFI off when you are not using it. Source: Lifehacker

  7. http://www.latimes.com/business/technology/la-fi-tn-apple-siri-queries-20130419,0,7117017.story So if they remove identifiers to no longer associate an individual with the questions asked to Siri.. then what about the content of the questions or information shared with Siri? All those peoples names, addresses, etc. are all saved on Apple's systems? "Call so and so", "Give me directions to this persons address", etc., etc. All that info is saved.. wtf.

    The future of Sprint

    http://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2012/10/15/sprint-sells-percent-company-japanese-firm/Tjcsgx6Ko3UgWadvryvYtM/story.html http://gigaom.com/2012/10/18/sprint-gains-control-over-clearwire-with-stock-buy/ Maybe now Sprint will finally improve its network. It pisses me off to no end that sprint is completely useless inside most buildings and offices. I have no reception in my work building with sprint, but verizon customers can stream netflix. wtf. Both of those articles were from October of 2012.. so just when you think Sprint has a possibly bright future, you hear about a major failure like this: http://www.npr.org/2013/01/16/169490562/wayne-dobson-doesnt-have-your-lost-cellphone "Wayne Dobson Doesn't Have Your Lost Cellphone" The guy has so many ppl showing up at his house looking for their phone that he had to put a sign up in his yard. How the hell could Sprint have let this issue persist for 2 years!? I wonder if that guy has sued for some kind of compensation yet.
