adobe continues to ignore lack of security features on hosted createPDF

Filed under: DARPA — Sagacious Himself @ 2:23 pm

In 2006 the plan was to offer what is now hosted LiveCycle security

http://forums.adobe.com/message/1350803

Currently adobe has no plans to offer users of createPDF

http://createpdf.adobe.com

any kind of security: no password, no certificates, no livecycle

http://forums.adobe.com/thread/757881

.

Seems only third parties bother to offer the power of createpdf AND hosted LiveCycle

plans to solve the high gas price problem from half a decade ago SagaciousHimself.pdf

But, please, enjoy $5.00/gal and more prices by doing nothing domestically and outsourcing to people that hate the cradle of Western Civilization, our republic, The United States of America.

If we fall the prior dark ages will seem like a resort vacation.

Amazon selling privacy-rape? STOP allowing amazon abuse! Trade not privacy for cash. “discount” kindle is not a bargain and AdMash is more evil

Filed under: AdNoyances,BULLSHIT — Sagacious Himself @ 10:29 am

Who is insane enough to “sell” their privacy for $25?

Twenty five WHOLE dollars off a kindle to tolerate malware? *

NO

NO

NOOO

Here’s how it works. AdMash will show you two different screensavers and then ask you to vote for the one you like best.

NEITHER!  I like zero ads.  I see zero ads.  I am certainly not paying to see ads! WTH

adservers are “privacy rape”.  That’s the best turn of phrase I’ve yet seen.

How many of the feckless  hoard will give [waste] their time helping the evil adservers craft eviler ads with Amazon AdMash?

A malware powered kindle ought be ZERO out of pocket cost AND CONTINUE paying the user at the very least for the high privacy loss cost. AND in n-ambiguous terms should explain the actual cost of using such evil software

No statement on privacy assurance?  even on not voting tablets?

Where’s the “I changed my mind here’s twenty five dollars turn off this evil amazon crapware” option?

Amazon giving away “free” software?  That’s incentivising DRM installation.  And a secure platform too.  Why it was minutes before that aviary genocide rio game was cracked, liberated of its drm wrapper.  DRM encourages piracy and amuses crackers.  My android device has few drm teeth not kicked in and those remaining bite nothing.  I sync my life through exchange and tinker with funambol.  I don’t trust ad purveyors with my privacy: I don’t trust google and now I have reason to distrust amazon who has so well served me as a retailer.

[insert SIP call me widget here]

too bad wp hosted blogs are widget hostile.  Let’s have a wp wrapper for sip call widgets!

* Adware is by definition malware

now even microsoft ripping off DerTandemBrowser with bing “social” browsing

Filed under: bizarre must awesome want,DARPA,overview — Sagacious Himself @ 2:01 pm

DerTandemBrowser — awesome firefox extension that the masses could not be bothered to embrace

http://dertandembrowser.mozdev.org/

Der Tandem Browser is an add-on for the Mozilla browser which provides features that facilitate synchronized or interactive browsing among two or more people. When installed, it embeds a collapsible chat area/control panel into the bottom of the browser, and inserts a corresponding menu item to hide or display this panel in Mozilla’s View > Show/Hide menu. Users connect to one another via the internet in the typical server-client configuration, with one person running Der Tandem Browser as a host and everyone else as a client. Once connected, users can chat with one another just as with any standard chat application.

is now receiving microsoft pirating.. very genuine.. great advantage

http://social.discoverbing.com

It “only” requires one be using a life slurping service like facebook:  facebook!  Since microsoft owns skype now expect a social-bing skype addon soon.

Who [else] would have thought the LOWEST common denominator kludge of facebook would have heavier lowering factors?

.

(CoBrowser a later DerTandemBrowser knockoff)

((I found StumbleUpon regularly perusing mozdev))

Obama, greatleader, plans to make jews bitches to islam. His masters are grinning eerily

Feel any hope?

God is the only ally anyone needs.. “gates of hell SHALL NOT prevail” and whatnot. Offer Mass for a return to faith of our once greatly faithful nation of honorable men.

Open Garden and EFF Open Wireless movement : cirvumventing verizon wireless 3G fraudulent enticement ?

Filed under: DARPA,Geeky goodness,verizon circumvention — Sagacious Himself @ 1:43 pm

 

http://opengarden.net/

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2011/04/open-wireless-movement

.

“openness” is great and all but if I am to share my internets with strange unknown persons I will want to prevent them visiting unsavory sites on MY connection.  (Yes, I have read footnote number one in the EFF article.)

  • no “adult” sites
  • no eye patch sites
  • nothing that would earn me a visit from the FBI

What open garden has no plans to incorporate RADIUS? Hosted style as in dd-wrt?

And yes it requires root but wait..  tutorials and videos for adding root permissions [SuperOneClick] is conveniently provided for windoze users.  Rooting still requires windoze piracy in VM… unless you want to buy a windows license to run in vm on *nix for a one time use.  Also a video on using z4root

EFF footnote two pitches a disturbing use of geoiplocation!  Now more than ever ISPs should offer opt-out from netblocks with fine grained geo location information.

verizon wireless “cramming”: arbitrarily applied private address space policy

Filed under: fraudulent enticement,Righteous Rage,verizon sucks — Sagacious Himself @ 11:32 am

Forcing customers to accept charges for services not provided but for which they are billed is termed “cramming” in the telecommunications industry.

I pay for unlimited 3G data.  I receive something other than 3G as defined by my contract.  Verizon wireless proffers 3G as voip capable.  As demonstrated this private address space savaged network configuration is at best voip-hostile.
