iPhone Rumoured to be NSA Snoop Device

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

I'm not sure what else people would expect after AT&T collaborated with the NSA to break the law and invade the privacy of millions of Americans, but recently a Russian team of hackers claim to have found parts of the iPhone firmware that is designed to send contacts, text messages, call logs, and browsing history to outside servers over the Internet without the user's knowledge.

It will be interesting to follow this story.

Ron Paul in Greenville, SC

Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

I'm not much of a writer, but I feel an urge to mention what we did today.  Lauren and I attended the Ron Paul Rally in Greenville, SC today, and it was incredible!  We had so much fun.  I feel like I can't adequately describe Ron Paul's performance.  It's like he took the ideals of our Founding Fathers and those of the great Austrian economists, combined them, made them easy for everyone understand, and not only communicated them, but managed to transform a convention center full of people into a mob charged with passion for the message of Freedom.  Never in my lifetime have I seen a crowd cheer for sound money.  Dr. Paul criticized the US surrendering its sovereignty to UN, and they cheered.  He blasted the Iraq war, and they cheered. He blasted the drug war, and they cheered.  He blasted our foreign policy, and they cheered.  He called inflation theft, and they erupted in applause!  I never thought I would see the day when a presidential candidate would stand up for these principles, and I never, ever thought I would see the day when a politician like that had support like this.

The few pictures I took are on my flickr account.

On a side note, my parents drove down from Raleigh to meet us.  It was the first time they've met Lauren, and it went great.  I feel incredibly fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life.
