Posted on December 2, 2009 | No CommentsPrivacy advocates and career criminals alike are in a lather over reports that between September 2008 and October 2009, Sprint Nextel ponied up customer location data to various law enforcement agencies more than 8 million times. Speaking at ISS World 2009 (a conference for law enforcement and telecom industry-types responsible for "lawful interception, electronic investigations and network Intelligence gathering"), Sprint Nextel's very own Paul Taylor, Manager of Electronic Surveillance, lamented on the sheer volume of requests the company's received in the past year for precise GPS data for Sprint customers. How did the company meet such high demand? Apparently, his team built a special "web interface" which "has just really caught on fire with law enforcement." We're glad that Sprint's plans to streamline the customer service experience don't stop short of those who serve and protect, but as the EFF points out, plenty of nagging questions remain, including: How many individual customers have been affected? Is Sprint demanding search warrants? How secure is this web interface? Check out an excerpt from Taylor's speech after the break.
Posted on August 13, 2009 | 1 CommentCrashCorp, the joint venture between former Digg Lead Architect Joe Stump, and former co-founder of Socialthing, Matt Galligan, have released two videos of a proof-of-concept app developed for the iPhone. After speaking Matt Galligan, he mentioned that CrashCorp is changing the direction of their company. He also notes:
Right now, there's a gap in the market, as it relates to making it easy to add persistent location to mobile apps. We're simply addressing that gap by providing an end-to-end location solution for app developers. Part of that solution will include developing SDK's for mobile devices, that will allow app developers to quickly add new ways to view location data.
Posted on August 10, 2009 | No CommentsWhy shouldn't the iPhone be able to control a unmaned military reconnaissance aircraft? If you think about it, the iPhone is little more (ok, a lot more) than a souped-up Wii controller and we already know those little devices can control robots and such. And so MIT professor and former F/A-18 Hornet pilot, Missy Cummings, set out to replace the suitcase-sized controller currently need to control arial drones. Spoiler: her team succeeded as the video after the jump proves.
