Kansas City’s Fiber House was purchased by a startup accelerator company co-founder. It continues to be offered to entrepreneurs, rent free, for one year. Those who have taken him up on the offer have been able to both live and work in the house, which is powered by GoogleFiber. The lightning-fast connection offers 1Gbps speeds and downloads speeds exceeding 150 Mbps.
The Fiber House came after the “Hacker House”,which was the first version. The latter is located just around the corner from the Fiber House. Hacker House also offers rent-free digs for entrepreneurs with the same Google Fiber connection from internet service providers in Sacramento California. Those wishing for a chance to live at FiberHouse must be 18 or over to apply.
It can be very stressful to research and figure out where to turn to sign up for something like broadband service. Perhaps you’ve tried calling various providers, only to discover that they don’t offer a connection at your address. Or maybe you’ve already visited lots of individual providers’ sites, only to be let down by the amount of time you’ve put in and the lack of results you received. However, there are really useful online resources now which compile information for several providers, including what their current discount offers are. A good guide will also help to educate you on the technologies available, as well as help you pinpoint the right DSL providers by zip code speed for your specific lifestyle. Checking online enables you to determine availability with top providers as well as lets you save time.
Three million dollars have been committed by search giant Google to something called the Global Human Trafficking Hotline Network. The announcement, made yesterday, is an answer to the fact that the proceeds of human trafficking often feed conflict, repression and instability all over the world. The network would see groups across the globe sharing data via internet service providers in my area.
One shocking statistic about human trafficking is that as many as 21 million people could be enslaved by it, with possibly as many as 2.5 million people being in forced labor at any given time. However, since the human trafficking industry offers inaccurate statistics, the numbers could be that much higher. The network hopes to more effectively target an issue by logging calls, noting their location and caller-provided data, and then analyzing findings with other human rights organizations.
If you currently use Dropbox, Gchat, Skype or email, Big Brother may be watching you even more closely should they get their way. The FBI is only currently able to monitor transcripts and email archives. This is because the current Communciations Assistance for Law Enforcement Act doesn’t cover real-time access to the cloud services, email or chat programs that internet service providers in San Francisco California customers use.
FBI general counsel Andrew Weissman has said that obtaining the authority to monitor the services in real time is going to be a top priority for the agency this year. However if more information is needed, the agency can get a Title III order to request any technical assistance they may need in order to get information from emails and online chats, making many experts wonder why they feel the need for additional access.
A vulnerability in Windows has been patched which allowed full control of a computer via USB. The vulnerability was given the classification of important due to its possibility of spreading quickly via large gatherings where many people are using USB sticks to transfer information. Much like the Stuxnet worm, this vulnerability would allow for the penetration of networks not connected via internet service providers in Seattle Washington.
The worm spreads via a USB drive that has been maliciously formatted and then inserted into a computer. Attack code is then executed following the reading of a particular descriptor by Windows drivers. Even a locked computer can be taken over, as the vulnerability requires no user intervention. In addition to the patch, Microsoft has also retooled the Autorun feature, which would automatically pop up when a USB or other external drive was plugged in. This window was commonly used by hackers to get unsuspecting victims to click on legitimate-looking options like “open folder to view files”.
The above scenario is just what some researchers are taking a closer look at. Apparently, there are many factors at play which are making internet service providers in Washington DC and the internet in general much more prone to attack. In fact, the next ten years could see a major attack on the internet itself. And hackers may have a much easier time of it if the internet’s current weaknesses aren’t corrected by then.
One of these weaknesses is the initial versions of router software. Because these tend to contain the highest number of vulnerabilities, experts agree that more work needs to be done to make these first versions less prone to attack. Another issue is the weakness of operating systems, which hackers tend to take advantage of when launching their attacks.
Amazon issued a warning today for iOS users of its Kindle app. The warning advises against downloading the latest update of the app due to a glitch that has been discovered. According to Amazon, the latest iOS Kindle logs users out of the service, forcing them to log in again using internet service providers in Indianapolis Indiana. But that’s not the worst of the issue.
Amazon says that the new app update will completely erase a user’s library from their device, as well as their bookmarks and additional settings. Users will then have to log into Kindle and re-download their desired titles. Among the many angry comments from users are those who say they have had to delete and reinstall the app. Details about the latest update can be found in the “What’s New” section of the web site.
If you recently received email from the Internet Copyright Law Enforcement Agency, or ICLEA that accused you of copyright infringement and threatened you with arrest, you can delete it right away. According to Fight Copyright Trolls, the missive is a scam designed to get your money via internet service providers in San Diego California. When identifying it as a scam, one need only look at the law in the United States, which prohibits anyone but the government from prosecuting infringers.
Thankfully, it was revealed today that the scammers have now posted a notice on their web site, announcing that they are no longer in operation, and urging people not to send payments. Although it is unclear just how many people were affected, notices were also apparently received via certified mail a couple of weeks ago.
Among the talk regarding copyright infringement via file piracy and file sharing via internet service providers in St. Louis Missouri and other ISPs, another idea has emerged from a search giant. Google, according to reports is currently investigating a new way to stem the flow of pirated material: starvation. The company has allegedly joined forces with other major players like PayPal and Visa in an attempt to halt the supply of money to sites that engage in link hosting with sites that offer copyrighted pirated material.
Google very well may be following the lead of financial companies who ceased the ability to donate to whistle-blowing site Wikileaks two years ago. After this was completed, it appears that the site’s operation was severely weakened, although the site is still in operation. Google’s timing is considered to be in line with accusations from critics that it isn’t properly dealing with pirated material.
