Liberation requires collaboration between free thinkers without infringement or censorship. In another age, we could meet in public spaces. Today avoiding the Crown’s surveillance requires we exchange encrypted communication.
Facebook is a top-tier tech company practicing unregulated surveillance capitalism. To expose what personal data exists, where it is stored and for how long it is stored would expose the monster that Zuckerberg has created. Google and Amazon are in t
Compute, data, and algorithmic advances are the three fundamental factors that guide the progress of modern Machine Learning (ML). Researchers studied trends in the most readily quantified factor compute.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted Elon Musk's SpaceX permission to provide Starlink high-speed satellite internet to users in vehicles, vessels, and aircraft, potentially changing the game regarding the current dial-up speeds on com
Last year, the Raspberry Pi Foundation launched the first product based on silicon that was developed in-house. Now the Pico microcontroller has been upgraded with built-in Wi-Fi for running new Internet-of-Things projects.
I talk about the dangers of certain types of phones here ad infinitum and I'm curious to see what choices people actually make. I want to find out what your issues are and make this about getting your opinions.
Scientists in the Netherlands have made a major step towards quantum computer networks by teleporting quantum information between two nodes that didn't have a direct link to each other. The breakthrough heralds a faster and more secure communicatio
Our information in the USA is protected by the First Amendment (Free Speech) and the Fourth Amendment (Unreasonable Search and Seizure). When data is in the hands of a private company like a Google, Facebook, Apple, or Microsoft, all bets are off. E
ColdQuanta, the global quantum ecosystem leader, today announced its acquisition of Chicago-based Super.tech, a world leader in quantum software application and platform development, and the beta launch of Hilbert, the world's first gate-based cold
Engineers at MIT have developed an ultra-thin speaker that could be used to make entire surfaces produce sound. The unique design should be energy efficient and easy to produce at scale, the team says.
While true mobility is not yet supported by low earth orbit satellite internet option by SpaceX & Elon Musk, Starlink is finally a feasible option for use in a "portable" fashion for RV & boat nomadic use.
Hawaiian Airlines today became the first major airline to announce an agreement with Starlink to provide complimentary high-speed, low-latency broadband internet access to every guest onboard flights between the islands and the continental U.S, Asia
This week on the New World Next Week: the digital ID grid rolls out in country after country; the dumbphone revolution sees people ditching their smartphones in growing numbers; and performers are dropping like flies as the Foo Pfizers drummer become
In just a decade, 3D-printed guns have come a long way from the single-shot "The Liberator" pistol published online for the world to download in 2013 by Cody Wilson's Defense Distributed to a fully functional 3D-printable semiautomatic pistol carbine
Your phone has more than one computer in it. And the second main computer has a big target sign plastered on it. This is now the biggest cybersecurity threat on the phone. This video is a very detailed discussion of how the phone is built and the the
Auto chip shortages have prevented carmakers from making over ten million cars. The microcontroller shortage after the Renesas fire in Japan and the COVID lockdowns in Southeast Asia caused most of the problems in 2021.
As with most things, nature's data storage system, DNA, far surpasses anything we've created. Now, researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign have doubled its already incredible storage capacity by adding extra letters to its "a
The ability to stimulate and or control cells in the brain could provide us with powerful new ways to understand and treat neurological disorders, and we're starting to see some very interesting ways this might be achieved.
There's a secret network in operation today and this network can send centralized commands from its master to slave devices without anyone being able to stop it. It has the most advanced location tracking capabilities and no one can intercept its t
Is your phone communicating externally when it's off? Is that even possible? Snowden was very concerned about this and brought it up many years ago. I never considered this a serious privacy threat but it's time to reexamine this since new technology
ColdQuanta cools atoms to a few millionths of a degree above absolute zero and uses lasers to arrange the atoms, hold them in place, run computations on them, and read out the results. Quantum calculations, communications, and sensing are the result.
