Feds Will Need Warrant to Use Cellphone Scanning Technology Known as ‘Stingrays’

Tags : 

In a major policy shift, the Justice Department announced today that the FBI, DEA and U.S. Marshals Service will now have to obtain a warrant before using a cellphone scanning device to track down wanted criminals. Until today, those law enforcement agencies have been able to use those devices — commonly known as Stingrays — virtually at will.

DOJ officials confirmed today that Stingrays are widely used by federal, state and local law enforcement in criminal investigations: the U.S. Marshals Service has a fleet of planes stationed at airports around the country equipped with Stingrays to hunt for federal fugitives. The FBI says it has used the technology in high-profile kidnapping cases, and the DEA often employs it to run down drug dealers. Baltimore police have acknowledged using Stingray technology on more than 4,000 cases since 2007.

The Stingray technology can locate a specific suspect by scanning thousands of phones to pinpoint the suspect’s phone signal. But the cellphones and locations of thousands of innocent people can be ‘pinged’ by a Stingray while it is searching for a suspect’s phone in the sea of digital signals. Some privacy advocates have raised concerns, and charge that the technology violates the rights of cellphone users whose location is swept up in the search for a criminal.

Federal and local law enforcement officials traditionally have been reluctant to talk about how the technology works, and when and how they employ it. Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates said today law enforcement officials have not wanted to disclose much about Stingrays, because they didn’t want to “give the bad guys a road map on how to defeat it.”

In announcing the policy change, Yates said the Stingray technology has been “instrumental in aiding law enforcement in a broad array of investigations, including kidnapping, fugitive investigations and complicated narcotics cases.” But she conceded that there were no consistent guidelines in federal law enforcement for the use of Stingrays. She could not even say how many times federal agents have used Stingrays in the recent past.

“The cell simulators do not collect any content,” Yates pointed out, but “this new policy ensures our protocols for this technology are consistent, well-managed and respectful of individuals’ privacy and civil liberties.”

In addition to the requirement to obtain a search warrant, the new policy:

Dexter Industries Launches First Ever Robot Subscription Service!

Tags : 

GoBox is a GoPiGo Raspberry Pi robot with a new Mission and a new sensor delivered to your door every month, starting this Holiday 2015 season.

Washington, D.C. September 1, 2015 – Dexter Industries, an educational robotics company, today launched GoBox, their fourth Kickstarter project. GoBox is a monthly subscription of robot Missions that are designed for a child (ages 7 and up) to do with the help of an adult. The intent of GoBox is to make learning computer programming and technology accessible to everyone. It doesn’t require any prior knowledge of robotics, and takes you step-by-step through building your own robot and learning how to program it to do all kinds of cool things!

The first month’s GoBox Mission comes with a complete robot kit, the GoPiGo, for you to build and start learning how to program. The GoPiGo is based on the Raspberry Pi, a $35 single board computer developed by a UK foundation designed to teach young people how to program. Each month, subscribers will get a new sensor to attach to your GoPiGo robot, along with a Mission complete with beautiful illustrations and links to helpful videos.

This past Father’s Day, ten parent-child teams gathered at NOVA LABS, a community Makerspace in Reston, VA, to try GoBox for themselves. Parents of all skill levels worked side-by-side with their child to build their GoPiGo robot car, and decorate and program it to look and act like an animal of their choice.  Within a few hours, there were cheetahs, bats, moths, and spiders crawling around the floor of the lab!

“I’ve really never done anything like this before with my son, and it was so easy and fun – I couldn’t believe it!” said participant Lily Griffin, mother of 12-year old Ryan.

Dave Bock, a software developer, came to get one of his triplets more interested in technology. “It was fun to see the creative side come out, along with learning technical concepts about motors and programming.”

Key Features of GoBox:
* No prior experience or knowledge required – beginners welcome!
* Monthly Missions that slowly build on each other and keep you engaged – the key to success!
* Missions use Scratch, an easy-to-use drag/drop language developed by MIT.

HDFury Launches yet another path breaking device – the HDCP Doctor, HDFury Integral

Tags : 

System Integrators and advanced users can rejoice as the HDFury Integral is a device that has been built specifically for them and boasts of 4K 60 4:4:4 600 MHz and is of 18 Gbps capable, along with several other features that have never been integrated into a device before.

HDFury Integral is a brand new device that is supportive of the maximum bandwidth available along with its capacity to transfer data as per the HDMI2.0a max standards. There is also a host of other features that make it stand out from the mass.

Not only is this versatile device technology – forward, but at the same time, it also has an irresistible aesthetic appeal. To put it in simpler terms, this HDFury Integral device is a cross between a UHD Audio / Video device similar to the multipurpose and versatile Swiss knife. Similarly, just like a Swiss Knife, this HDFury Integral enables users to undertake myriad activities like controlling a device or configuring it and even performing operations on the device remotely using an Android or Apple powered smartphone or tablet.

Some of the many functions that this HDFury Integral can perform include acting as a splitter as well as an HDCP and HDMI Doctor. In addition to this it can also extract and replace audio and at the same time, it also looks after Matrix and EDID Management and much more making it a versatile device that must be a part of every technology lover’s arsenal. It boasts of 2 inputs as well as 2 outputs and therefore, one will never have any issues when watching TV ever again. Its futuristic appeal enables users to be more tech – savvy and they can essentially get a glimpse into the world of advanced TV viewing without any disruption.

Some of the most important features of the HDFury Integral 4K 60 4:4:4 600 MHz 18 Gbps include:

1. Complete control and flexibility:
HDFury Integral is not defined by rigidity but in fact, it is the exact opposite giving complete control to the user. The app for HDFury Integral is coming soon on both the Google Playstore as well as the Apple Store and can be used on both the smartphone as well as tablet, all it requires is an active Bluetooth connection. In addition to this, one can also use IR control and other kinds of buttons for additional and advanced configurations.

2. Extremely unique in its benefits:
It is the ultimate HDCP doctor. When an HDCP1.x or an HDCP2.x source device wishes to connect to its corresponding sink devices, HDFury Integral not only makes this connection possible by undertaking any HDCP revision and converts it on the fly exceptionally. It also supports dual conversions and it does so simultaneously.

3. HDCP 2.2 content can be viewed on devices that do not support it:
4K60 UHD Content is usually protected by the copy protection scheme that is offered by HDCP 2.2. Therefore, there are a growing number of source devices, Netflix, for instance, that use this 4K encoding system and therefore, any device that does not comply with the HDCP 2.2 standard usually cannot play that on their TV. Irrespective of the amount that you’ve spent on other devices like switchers and receivers, any kind of copy – protected work is very unlikely to be played to the user unless they have used HDFury Integral as part of their setup process.

4. HDMI Extraction of Audio:
One of the most distinctive features of the HDFury Integral is its ability to extract HDMI audio seamlessly and at the same time, using the 3.5 mm combo jack connector; it can get an output of analog L/R Stereo and optical S/PDIF simultaneously.

5. Greater and more effective conversion:
In the usual cases, past UHD TV sets that were sold are equipped to accommodate 4K 60 4:2:0 300 MHz and 10.2Gbps. The Integral device is capable of converting a 4K 60 4:4:4 600MHz signal (18Gbps) into a suitable stream for the pre-HDCP2.2 or pre-HDMI2.0a 4K displays. This helps resolve major TV viewing issues. However, brand new TV sets that use highly advanced and superior graphics engine to support 4K 60 4:4:4 600 MHz and 18Gbps stream are effectively supported by HDFury Integral individually per channel or simultaneously.

6. EDID Management:
The EDID Management solution is new and improved with options that enable one to upload Custom EDID, Self generated Automix EDID or a Fixed Basic EDID.

“With HDfury Integral, we are bringing an universal and legal solution to HDCP 2.2 integration issues.”

The HDFury Integral is available for preorder and potential customers can get their hands on this versatile device in October. The ones who sign up for the preorder also stand a chance to get their HDFury Integral at an additional 25% discount. All one has to do is use the coupon code INTEGRAL when checking out.

6 Quick Tips to Prevent SEO Annotations from Becoming a Chore

Tags : 

It’s an issue that plagues many SEOs and digital marketers everywhere. We get so tied up coming up with strategies, implementing tactics, and measuring results that we forget to create simple notes and reminders of events both small and large, which could impact our campaigns.

Taking the time to notate our observances can seem like a misuse of valuable time when compared to actually implementing tactics. But the fact is, the better we annotate in the moment, the more efficient we will be when we report on the successes and learnings of a strategy or tactic. Here are six quick ways for you to make annotating part of your weekly SEO and digital marketing habits, rather than treating it like a chore:

1. Determine What Warrants an Annotation

You first need to come up with or re-evaluate your own definition of what warrants an annotation or an event. You can define this by the type of event – content marketing campaign launch, email blast, technical site change. Or define it by the potential impact of an event be it traffic change, keyword ranking change, major year-over-year change in traffic, or ranking or revenue. How you prefer to define an event is up to you and the needs for your business, but it’s important to establish a baseline for what you should be tracking.

2. If You Think It, Write It

Just because you don’t have the time to properly record a note in the tool or spreadsheet you use to keep track of a new page going live or a canonical tag being implemented, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t record it at all. Keep a notepad at your desk specifically for these “think it, write it” moments where you can quickly jot down the date or detail of a certain change that needs to be recorded, but you don’t have time to properly annotate right that second.

3. Make Time to Properly Annotate

If you let it pile up, this “tip” may not be so quick to execute. However, if you set aside 15 minutes – I like every Friday morning – to add the notes you’ve made throughout the week to your formal annotation tool, you’re less likely to fall behind or find yourself asking three months from now, “What caused this three-day traffic spike?” A quick note would tell you that the spike was caused by an email marketing campaign.

google-analytics-annotations

4. Enlist Help

You may not be working on a one-man team, which means some things worth annotating may occur without your direct knowledge. By setting up a system with your counterparts, you can ensure nothing falls through the cracks. This means establishing a means of communication for these types of scenarios that is easy for both you and the rest of your team. Create a specific email template or shared document to help get these updates communicated quickly and easily. If you use an email template, ask your team to send you a brief note that includes the date and type of event, as well as major notes or takeaways.

5. Decide What to Measure

If the roadblock that’s keeping you from annotating properly is the fact that it’s not the best use of your time in the moment, make annotating about how it will help you when the next reporting cycle roles around. In your notes, include a short list of items that you should be measuring or looking back on to compare YoY to fully understand the impact of the event you’re annotating.

6. Evaluate Your Process

About once a quarter, it’s ideal for you to review the annotations you’ve made throughout the past three months. By doing this you can determine a few things:

  1. Did you fall short on your annotations? If you only have a couple of notes about major events or updates that occurred, then you probably aren’t notating as much as you should.
  2. Are your notes concise and helpful? If you include information like dates, major takeaways, and follow up steps for reporting, then you likely have enough valuable information to make it useful in the months ahead.
  3. Are you over-annotating? If you have notes that are superfluous or too detailed, you’ll be less likely to use your annotations as a point of reference. Make sure you’re recording the medium to big rocks so that you’re encouraged to use your annotation notes as a resource. By over-annotating, you are likely to never look back on your notes or fall into the “this isn’t the best use of my time” trap.

I like to set up my annotations so I can easily sort and filter by time periods or types of changes that need to be noted. You can also notate directly within a tool like Google Analytics. Your record keeping system doesn’t have to be fancy to be useful.
