Interesting things I read on the Internet this week
SpaceX can’t broadcast Earth images because of a murky license — Apparently it requires a “commercial remote sensing licence” to transmit video from space back to Earth.
Mailinator launches disposable SMS — Excellent development, especially as the number of things needlessly asking for my phone number seems to be increasing.
‘Big Brother’ in India Requires Fingerprint Scans for Food, Phones and Finances — I feel uncomfortable about the scale of this centralised database.
Department Of Homeland Security Compiling Database Of Journalists And ‘Media Influencers’ — I don’t know what to think about this, but it doesn’t feel good.
The dots do matter: how to scam a Gmail user — Normalising Gmail addresses is a PITA.
