Sen. Rubio introduces privacy bill to regulate big tech companies
 
So I started a blog called #lazytux where I'm going to be posting cool software I find as well as opinion pieces. Just thought I'd throw it out there since some people seem to like my posts on Diaspora. Hope it turns out good, anyway cheers.

A smartphone camera with 10x optical zoom may be in the works - If so, the paradigm shifts again for smartphones


Cameras have become a bigger and bigger selling phone of smartphones in recent years. CPUs and RAM have all become "good enough" but the innovation has largely been happening around cameras with augmented reality, night vision, stabilisers, HDR, digital zoom, AI learning from what the camera sees, and smartphones have become the vehicle for capturing memories for most people, not to mention some really outstanding photography.

One thing that has really lacked has been actual optical zoom. This challenge (due to such thin cameras) is compounded by having such small lenses so that fewer pixels and light can be captured (versus a large lens with a larger sensor on a DSLR) so anything further away, or where you want to crop a photo, a lot of detail is just lost. Optical zoom would go a long way to actually bringing that distant detail more in focus and usable. Combine this with some of the intelligence already invented with the use of AI, and smartphone came... show more
 

Apple books 50 daily flights to China, spends $150 million a year with a single airline - For an IT company where is Facetime and Video Conferencing??


For me from a tech perspective, the destination and the wisdom about putting this on a poster is not the big thing... What UI just wonder is that companies like Google, Facebook and Apple all have their own video conferencing apps. Why so much travel?

E-mail is unhealthily entrenched in corporate culture but adoption of video conferencing is furthermost removed. It's not just about cost, but more the important loss of time and productivity. It suggests to me that tech companies are not quite comfortable with how VC integrates into the way they work?

Microsoft is not listed so maybe it says their Skype for Business just works a lot better? Chevron makes 100% sense on the list as they sell fuel so the more they travel the more of their product gets sold?

It's definitely a culture issue as I've seen free Jitsi installed internally in an organisation that is literally "click to VC" - no account registration... show more
 

How do I completely wipe a hard-drive?


Hello folks. I have a bit of a problem, and I'm hoping that the diaspora* community may be able to offer up some advice.
Now I know a little bit about some basics, but I am certainly no computer savvy person. So I need your help, if you can offer any.

Some time ago, I bought a yard-sale Lenovo laptop. Yeah it showed as having a 250GB HDD and 2GB RAM, but its rather small, and I don't need it for mass storage or gaming and such. All I wanted it for was an email, social-media checker, and storing music and some photos etc.. You know a nice, small laptop that in fact, would actually fit in my purse! Probably a silly idea, but I got it super cheap since the seller said it would just randomly "lock down". I get the thing home, and think I have this figured out. I do a full reset and re-install of a new Windows-8. Confident that a new install of Windows will solve the problem. Everything went well, all previous user data was gone, and it took to win-8 quite well. I used the computer for about a month with absolutely zero issues.... show more

How to Download Thousands of Classic Books and Movies That Just Entered the Public Domain - Duke’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain has listed them


The list of titles up for grabs includes Jacob’s Room by Virginia Woolf, The Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie, The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran, The World Crisis by Winston Churchill, Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, and many more. A few noteworthy movies also recently entered the public domain. Some of them include Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments and Charlie Chaplin's The Pilgrim.

Duke’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain has painstakingly listed nearly all of the new public domain works in an Excel spreadsheet, and a condensed list of the top titles is also available on its website. Unfortunately, you can’t get them all in one place, but a few reliable sources probably have what you’re looking for.

Hackers stole over 5 million unencrypted passport numbers from Marriott - Message to Corporates: You need to Legally Protect Privacy Information you Collect


Many (all?) hotels collect ID and passport details from customers, as do many other organisations even when it is not absolutely needed. Thing is, if you're storing it you have to protect it or face the consequences. Many countries now have some form of POPI Act which results in legal liability if that data is breached, and in some cases resulting even with the CEO being jailed. Gone are the days of just storing this information in an unencrypted database.

In South Africa, for example, the POPI Act says information should only be stored if there is a real reason to do, and only for as long as is needed, after which it must be safely erased. South Africans are also entitled to ask such a corporate what information is being stored about them.

The Most #Surprising #Tech #Breakthroughs of #2018


Development across the entire information technology landscape certainly didn’t slow down this year. From CRISPR babies, to the rapid decline of the crypto markets, to a new robot on Mars, and discovery of subatomic particles that could change modern physics as we know it, there was no shortage of headline-grabbing breakthroughs and discoveries.
