#Apple, #Facebook, #Google and other tech giants tell the Supreme Court to protect #cellphone #data in a key, upcoming case

#Facebook's #Onavo Gives Social-Media Firm Inside Peek at Rivals' Users
"Facebook's early insight came thanks to its 2013 acquisition of #Israeli #mobile analytics company #Onavo [ #VPN ], which distributes a data #security app that has been downloaded by millions of users. Data from Onavo's app has been crucial to helping #Facebook track rivals and scope out new product categories, The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week."
In future, there will be programs that, by the way person writes, will be able to tell, if two different texts were written by the same person. Well, probably there are already systems like that. Such a system is a topic of whole south park cartoon season, by the way.
I am not much concerned about my anonymity (finding me is as easy as googling “lowpolybrain”) but there are other places on web I might someday want to go and stay anonymous there.
Now there’s a question. I am learning English. The way I type changes every, like, month. Of course, there are still habits, like inserting the word “like”, but the overall structure and the way of typing changes every day.
Will that mean I will be kind of immune to detection by some kind of a neural network smart ass text analyzers? Comments welcome.

[Bitcoin Munich Meetup] Bisq & BBQ
Tuesday August 22nd, 18:00
Pirate Party LGS Bayern Schopenhauerstraße 71, 80807 München U2 Milbertshofen, exit South-West. 3 minute walk along Schopenhauerstraße.
We're excited to have Manfred Karrer, founder and lead developer of Bisq, formerly Bitsquare, an anonymous (or better: identity-agnostic) decentralized application for exchanging and trading crypto-coins against each other as well as against fiat currency and back. It makes use of the Tor network in the background.
On our meetups we're often asked how to get bitcoins, easily, and with optimized privacy.
One short answer (we honestly often forget to mention) is to download, install and run the free and open source application Bisq on your Windows-/Mac-/Linux-PC.
The long answer Manfred, Austrian-born and now living in Barcelona, will give in the in-depth introduction, presentation and walk-through of his masterpiece, long-standing, well-known and widely adopted in the crypto-currency space. He will explain and show all the features which might be overwhelming to newcomers at first, like why arbitration and escrows are necessary on this platform and how they work.
Especially there'll soon be a DAO (not an ICO) feature in Bisq, so you'll learn how you can become part of its eco-system.
Here are some interviews with Manfred:
We'll also have BBQ, just because. It's summer after all, seems the weather will be nice, and as far as it seems we'll be kindly hosted by the Pirate Party who have a backyard, terrace, and grill.

Marcus Hutchins' code written long after Kronos: researcher
The security researcher, who claimed recently to have found code written by Briton Marcus Hutchins that was used in the Kronos banking trojan by a third party, now says this code predates both Hutchins and the unknown third party that used it in Kronos.

Es soll Situationen geben, in denen man auf einen FortiGate Router/UTM zugegriffen muss, aber keiner in der Nähe ist, der das Administrator Kennwort kennt. Mit dieser Kurzanleitung und physischen Zugriff auf den Router, kann man das Passwort dann in den meisten Fällen zurücksetzen.
