Skype in eyes

Microsoft has collaborated closely with US intelligence services to allow users’ communications to be intercepted, including helping the National Security Agency to circumvent the company’s own encryption, according to top-secret documents obtained by the Guardian.

The files provided by Edward Snowden illustrate the scale of co-operation between Silicon Valley and the intelligence agencies over the last three years. They also shed new light on the workings of the top-secret Prism program, which was disclosed by the Guardian and the Washington Post last month.

Motorola Xoom Tablet

After weeks of research and playing with a first-generation iPad, I’ve made my decision to purchased a Motorola Xoom Wi-Fi tablet a week after it came out. I own a Motorola Droid first generation. My experience with Motorola products has been a pleasure, from CB radios to communications appliances for my government clients; Motorola has delivered quality products for the most part.

I’ve started receiving emails from Intuit’s TurboTax service. This was very strange, especially because I have not used their service this year. The email was addressed to RAMON MARTINEZ.

Regardless, I’m now receiving all his tax information online, and could potentially change his Intuit’s account password and make some damage. So much for online security.

I’ve recorded a video interview at last week’s Social Media Club event in Richmond, VA with my new Droid smartphone from Verizon. The video came out excellent taking in consideration the lack of lighting at the venue. Once recorded, I’ve downloaded on my Windows 7 laptop and it played flawlessly. I’ve also uploaded the video to Facebook and YouTube without issues.

Someone asked me earlier how to manage multiple Gmail accounts without Using any email clients or 3 different browsers. After a quick Google search, I’ve found this little neat add-on for Firefox called “Gmail Manager.” The add-on is not new by all means, but it is one not familiar to a lot of folks.
