Google’s creepy invasion of privacy:

The search engine giant owes the public an apology for secretly tracking the browsing habits of Apple customers.

The search engine giant and some advertising agencies used a secret code to track the Web habits of users of Apple’s Safari browser on iPhones and computers by bypassing its privacy settings, the newspaper reported. Safari, the most popular program for mobile surfing, is designed to block such tracking by default.

Google stopped the tracking when questioned about the practice by the Wall Street Journal.

Anti-Google Graffiti In NYC

Google’s logo has been showing up around New York City with one very shaming alteration: the two Os in “Google” have been replaced by surveillance cameras.

Discussions Discussion Internet’s Role in Popular Uprising
abeer alhamzawi, Jan. 20, 2012

what is ur stand on SOPA & PIPA?
This is all because of two pieces of legislation: the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House and its Senate companion bill, the Protect IP Act (PIPA). The purpose of these bills is to make it harder for sites — especially those located outside the United States — to sell or distribute pirated copyrighted material such as movies and music as well as physical goods such as counterfeit purses and watches. Even most of SOPA and PIPA’s strongest opponents applaud the intentions of the legislation while deploring what it might actually accomplish.

Although its sponsors have said that they would amend the bill, as currently written, SOPA would enable the U.S. Attorney General to seek a court order to require “a service provider (to) take technically feasible and reasonable measures designed to prevent access by its subscribers located within the United States to the foreign infringing site.” Until this weekend, one of the ways to do that would have been to cut the DNS (domain name server) records that point to the site, but that provision is likely to be removed after the Obama administration weighed in on the issue over the weekend, saying “Any effort to combat online piracy must guard against the risk of online censorship of lawful activity and must not inhibit innovation by our dynamic businesses large and small.” The administration also echoed concerns raised by a number of security experts, including some anti-malware companies that the bill could disrupt the underlying architecture of the Internet.

The White House statement coincided with sponsors agreeing to remove the DNS blocking provisions. Still, the bill could require search engines like Google to delete any links to the sites.

Do you know Massimo Marchiori? If the answer is no well, he invented Hyper Search, that has been the first published technique to introduce link analysis for search engines, opening the way for the second-generation of search engines (notably, Google above all). Google PageRank is based in this his algorithm.

Cameras are being installed in a San Antonio elementary school’s cafeteria to track the number of calories kids eat in their lunches. I wonder if this will make kids self-conscious about what they put on their food trays. And, if so, will girls be more self conscious than boys?
