Remember when South Korea mandated Microsoft Windows+ActiveX for use of national ID numbers for everything online ? Turns out if you mix crapy unsecure tech and personal sensitive data someone is bound to steal the entire national ID database for id theft and you have to redo the national ID scheme from scratch.

Lisbon Mini Maker Faire happened. Over 100 projects, 10000 people and infinite creativity. Shouts out to all the makers and crew for making the first edition that awesome.
Apple announced even them can’t crack iOS8 for the police and the malicious app panorama is getting better but healthkit apps got temporarily pulled from the store for what I assume is a privacy isolation bug. On the other camp android browser had a pretty nasty bug but google announced L will feature full disk encryption by default.
Meanwhile, google is closing down openid support cause open always win.
Mathematica Online. This is totally mind blowing.
European Commission is giving Public Health to the Enterprise and Industry Commissioner. Any question about the EC being rotten ?
And in Portugal the steal money for the productive economy and give it to a handful of random people law pushes on while real musicians talk about how the local RIAA is a racket to siphon money from musicians to themselves. And the week wouldn’t be done without the software industry lobby making sure its share of the tax money is on the books.

The dbagery in Portugal drags on in Portugal and the trade association talks about the numbers and the lawfulness.
Apple was convicted for manipulating the labour market and a bunch of nuddie selfies were liberated from iCloud by crackers but noone cares cause everybody is all hot and bothered about the new products.

Oculus will be under $400 for the release version which is fairly reasonable.
Google working on quantum computers. SKYNET IS THAT YOU ?
Terrorists are seeding fake cellphone towers in the US. The criminals behind this attack on critical communication infrastructure are unknown.
In Portugal the usual suspects are up to the usual pirating and deceiving while in Austria the usual suspects sue ISPs for wanting to follow the law and in the UK police are too busy to go after reported crimes and telling victims to take matters into their own hands probably because they are too busy arresting pirrrates.

Much in the same way as the spanish tax on links a tax on electronic devices that will delivered directly into the pocket of an “association” in Portugal got passed. And that means during summer holidays, rushed in secret, without public debate and against the stated opinion of consumers, industry associations and trade associations. And it’s being joined by a vague poorly defined anti-piracy plan which itself is pirated from a spanish 10 year old failed plan. Maybe it wasn’t pirated, maybe it was just payed for by the same group. And on totally non related news, Icelandic MPAA files for bankrupcy after massive fraud and embezzlement scandal.
We seem to be going knee deep in stolen credit cards.
