Biometrics scanner catches impostor at U.S. airport on just third day of use
By Hillary Grigonis    August 24, 2018

 

A biometric facial comparison system flagged a traveler using a fake passport — less than three days after the system was installed. LINK

 

 

Very impressive.  I wonder where they get scans to compare parameters with?  I guess from the electronic photos taken when entering the U.S. previously.

I'd say there's almost zero chance this *doesn't* end in a lawsuit.  Sounds like Tesla is pretty f#&%ed up.  (me: LINK lol)

The Unlikely Activists Who Took On Silicon Valley — and Won

By Nicholas Confessore   www.nytimes.com    Aug. 14, 2018

 

Mining personal data has become a trillion-dollar business — which is why activists are pushing laws to curb the practice, and why Facebook and other companies are desperate to stop them.  LINK 

 

 

Great, great NY Times article.  This grassroots effort to pass a California referendum that limits user data collection ties directly into the Cambridge Analytica scandal LINK,  the resulting plummet of Facebook stock price, and Donald Trump's re-election campaign.  Given the implications there has been surprisingly little media coverage.  Heh.  Go figure.  :nanalama

I just bought a new pair of headphones and I don't understand why the ear cups rotate 90 degrees. What does this feature do for me?

Why would you write a "how to book" if you were actually going to do it?

How about this shot of the Blue Angels performing at the Miramar Air Show over the weekend by Howard Lipin of The San Diego-Union-Tribune?  Perfectly lined up.  Dream shot.

In other news, here's a photo of Manhattan at night.
