Secure Email Shut-downsThe encrypted email service used by US fugitive, Edward Snowden has abruptly shut down, amid a legal fight involving US government attempts to win access to user information.

“I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people, or walk away from nearly 10 years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit,” Lavabit owner Ladar Levison wrote in a letter posted on the Texas-based company’s website.

Lavabit was founded in 2004 by Texas-based programmers, allegedly prompted by privacy concerns about Gmail, Google’s free, widely-used web-based email service, and their use of the content of users’ email to generate advertisements and marketing data.

Lavabit offered significant privacy protection for their users’ email, including asymmetric encryption. The strength of the cryptographic methods used was of a level that is difficult for even intelligence agencies to crack.

Notorious hacker and founder of Ghacks called the secure email service “probably the most secure, private email service right now”. In July 2013, Lavabit had about 350,000 users, it offered free and paid accounts with levels of storage ranging from 128 megabytes to 8 gigabytes.

Apple Gets Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Banned, AGAIN!UPDATE!! The behemoth that is Apple has won another temporary injunction to stop rival Samsung from selling its Galaxy tablet computer in Australia.

But Apple later launched an appeal to the High Court. The injunction means Samsung cannot sell the tablet computer until the case goes before the court on December 9. Apple says the South Korean company’s Google Android based Galaxy range of tablets and smartphones is too similar to its iPad and iPhone. The companies have been waging a battle in 10 countries over smartphone and tablet patents since April.

Apple iPhone 4s

As always Apple knows how to launch a new product, atmospherically, iPhone 4S launch is shaping up to be the mother of all launches.

Apple Stores worldwide have come alive in what can only be described as a festive mood. The stores are abuzz, all lit up with little geniuses scuttling about, preparing the stores for the launch of the year.

Apple co-founder and employee number one, Steve Wozniak took the first place in a line at the Apple Store at Los Gatos, California.

He apparently didn’t not get an iPhone 4S direct from Apple because he didn’t want to use his position of privilege. He’s happier sitting in line among ordinary folk and signing autographs on the iPhones and iPads of Apple fans.

I want to get mine along with the millions of other fans” Wozniak said :: Read the full article »»»»
