  • OPPO CAMERA: NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T

    The new Oppo peek-a-boo feature
    Somebody is thinking design again. Bravo!

    Like a glamorous fashion runway model, Oppo Find X made its debut in Paris on mid June. And from there we got glimpses of its busy European agenda in the likes of Italy, Spain and Holland. But no, you wont see it here in the US.

    Although not a big fan of Oppo, due to the issues they face regarding Chinese government regulations, the snooping and all that, its Find X model, did catch my eyes. You see, the Oppo Find X has a sliding mechanism in which the top portion of the phone reveals itself only when you want to take a picture or shoot a video. Otherwise, it remain hidden as it should be, bragging about it with a sleek flow-like gradient effect design.

    Well, I might as well throw in that list of words, a couple that seem fit: Zombie apocalypse!

    We were just getting over, latte in hand, of the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook quagmire, when suddenly another bomb, as eerie or more than CA, was slowly released on us. Like Big-Bertha in slow-mo heading down at normal G forces over our roof top. Run everyone!

  • PGP apocalypse (and how to overcome it)

    TRUE DATA DISASTER COMING YOUR WAY…

    How can you outsmart a brutal attack on your encrypted emails

    Specially if you are a journalist, a politician, and activist…

    As recent as today (actually late last Sunday night), a major set of vulnerabilities in OpenPGP and S/MIME (end-to-end encryption technologies) were found that could endanger your sensitive communications via email. This is so critical that it may reveal the plaintext of your encrypted emails. EFAIL, as it has been dubbed, changes and already encrypted email in such a way that when the victim's email client decrypts it and loads any external content, then it sends the plaintext to the attacker.

  • Follow the Yellow Brick Road… to Duplex

    THE WONDERFUL WIZARDS OF MARKETING

    FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD… TO DUPLEX

    When a duplex is not a duplex but Google's Duplex. Some thought on Artificial Intelligence.

    Last time I checked, a Duplex was a paired home, which actually were two homes that shared a common wall separating them. Also, my grandma used to say that she lived in a duplex because hers was a two story house.

    But now as of #IO18, we have Google's Duplex, which has nothing to do with dwellings, but with AI.

    Some have dubbed it "terrifying", "unethical" and "immoral", and Google has quickly responded to that by explaining that a built-in disclosure would be expressed every time the bot would work for someone.

  • How to protect yourself and YOUR information from Facebook and other data-eating PREDATORS

    THE WONDERFUL WIZARDS OF MARKETING

    How-to guide to PROTECT YOURSELF NOW, against privacy cyber predators.

    That includes Cambridge Analytica, Facebook and others.

    PART 3

    THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME

    “Shocking report: The Facebook truth” is a three part series revealing the shocking facts about Facebook and the Cambridge Analytica Scandal, and how you can protect yourself against them and other corporate privacy cyber predators.

    That my dear, is a "horse of a different color"




    Now, what you can do to effectively mitigate the espionage on you, and how to get out of the marketers/psychologists cross-hairs?

    The answer ultimately depends on how much you are emotionally/commercially attached/invested in Facebook. Therefore, there are two different approaches:

    NOTE 1: In either case, Facebook and its friends, will maintain your digital persona alive until it can no longer use it. So, what can you do to avoid them and other marketers to snoop on you?

  • What information about YOU is out there, via Cambridge Analytica and Facebook, waiting to haunt you?

    THE WONDERFUL WIZARDS OF MARKETING

    What information did they steal from you?

    PART 2

    TOTO, I'VE GOT THE FEELING WE'RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE

    “Shocking report: The Facebook truth” is a three part series revealing the shocking facts about Facebook and the Cambridge Analytica Scandal, and how you can protect yourself against them and other corporate privacy cyber predators.

    What to do with a brain if you had one: Crank up some Psychographics!




    Once the information was obtained from "This is your Digital Life" app users and their friends, Kogan's job (or is it GSR?) was to develop an algorithm following Cambridge Analytica needs, since Cambridge University refused to let them use its data for commercial purposes.

    Kogan's algorithm (or is it GSR?), should use all the data gathered to describe the personality, values, interests, and lifestyles of the those investigated, what marketers and psychologists call a Psycho-graphic study of said individuals. One of the bases of such study is a research by Youyou, Kosinski and Stillwell, that concludes that "computer judgments of people's personalities based on their digital footprints are more accurate and valid than judgments made by their close others or acquaintances."

    So, what we are talking here is the creation of a detailed psychological profile of YOU, to see ways to either sell you something or micro-target you with ads going from politics to cat food.

  • About Facebook, GSR, Cambridge Analytics and other feral animals

    THE WONDERFUL WIZARDS OF MARKETING

    How they broke into your digital home and got all your personal information.

    PART 1

    LIONS AND TIGERS AND BEARS! OH MY!

    “Shocking report: The Facebook truth” is a three part series revealing the shocking facts about Facebook and the Cambridge Analytica Scandal, and how you can protect yourself against them and other corporate privacy cyber predators.




    Sooo cool, just by filling out a simple questionnaire and I can see how my digital life is. I can ratify how great is my digital personality… That's exactly what my doctor prescribed me, to have an AI algorithm tell me how cool I am, and how handsome and daring I have shown the world that I am. Cant' wait to use it! (LOL). And they are going to pay me 2 bucks, sweet!!!

    As if I didn't already know how I am by looking at myself in the mirror, or by making a little introspection before I go to bed. Well, for many (270,000 users to be more exact) the mirror test was not enough, much less the introspection part. They wanted a third party, specifically they wanted an AI algorithm that could verify their coolness in the digital world. And as a side benefit, get paid a couple of dollars.

    What they didn't know, was that by taking such a seemingly harmless test, albeit appealing in nature due to a personality prediction (and the $2) through a research app used by psychologists (ah, those marketing geniuses, sigh), they were pulling along all their friends to be algorithmically analyzed too by AI, without letting them know about it (and without them getting paid either, chuckle, chuckle). In all, their pool of buddies came out to be over 87 million people. Close to 71 million in the US alone, over 1 million in the UK and close to 1 million if you combine Canada and Australia together.
