A good sign that the makers of our babycam do not understand security: In the README.txt, when upgrading firmware:

"Improvements: ... Encrypt all the username and password with MD5. ..."

So 1) passwords were obviously in the clear before, 2) they don't understand encryption vs hashing, and 3) they choose MD5. 

So much fail.

Any recommendations on a good digital photo frame that's easy to update remotely?  I.e., one you can give to grandparents & new photos magically appear?

We just updated our Transparency Report, showing how many requests Google gets for information about its users. But we're not allowed to give the full story because the U.S. government says that requests under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) must be kept secret. We can tell you this: Requests have more than doubled around the world since 2009, and more than tripled in the U.S.: http://g.co/u5sp

Share this if you believe you have a right to know what our governments are up to.

hmmmm .... transparency should just work all inclusively.  i'm real curious to not just know how many times their asking to see my information, but what they think about what they see.  its their devious thoughts that i'm mostly concerned about, they are as free to watch as any google employee -- i just don't worry about what the google employee thinks about what I say.

Ran into Nick Offerman at work today.  We talked about Illinois & Minooka. He asked if I went to Troy and described Shorewood as a nice little suburb of Joliet.
