Why you should stay away from Unseen.is - joepie91's Ramblings It took a bit longer than I expected before I had the time to make this post, but here it finally is. Not too long ago, I ran across some Anonymous-related Twitter accounts promoting Unseen.is. Unseen is, in their own words, a "private and secure messaging, calling and e-mail application" - which seems great, but really isn't. As it turns out, there are plenty of reasons why you shouldn't ever use them. The mortal sin of cryptography. You should never, ever, ever roll your own cryptography - or rather, if you do, you shouldn't actually use it in production, or publish it at all.

Best Time Tracking Apps I was going to give Klok a try, and I had downloaded it, downloaded and installed Adobe Air Runtime, and was playing around with it a little. However, then I noticed how much CPU time it's using when it's sitting there doing nothing. The lowest CPU% I saw in Activity Monitor was 20%, and on many screens with NOTHING changing (even once I move the mouse off and give something else focus) it would use 70%+ CPU. Being on a laptop, this is unacceptable. What Is Deep Packet Inspection? It’s easy to turn a deaf ear to the controversy surrounding recent copyright protection bills like the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) or the PROTECT IP Act, which threatened to curtail free speech on the Internet by allowing the U.S. Department of Justice to blacklist and block access to websites suspected of copyright infringement. Most of us don’t visit websites suspected of illegally distributing copyrighted material, so blocking us from accessing them seems harmless.

Why and How iOS Apps Are Grabbing Your Data Early last week the personal diary app Path became the fulcrum of a massive discussion about how cavalier mobile apps are getting with harvesting your, presumably, personal information. Path was found by a developer to send the entire contents of its users Address Books, where, it was uncovered, it was being stored locally. Predictably, when privacy issues are concerned, there was an outcry about how Path handled the data, and many decried it for being underhanded or even flat out lying about its procedures. But, as with most things, there is a bigger story here and it turns out that what Path was doing was far from out of the ordinary. 100+ Social Media Monitoring Tools 100+ Social Media Monitoring Tools From fans to followers, brands are actively working to engage their current and future customers via social media — and online reputation management is quickly becoming a vital part of doing business.
