Technology is rapidly moving into our bodies, writes cyber expert Keenan, and this book gives a chilling look ahead into where that road may lead us on a ´´one-way trip to the total surrender of privacy and the commoditization of intimacy´´. Here is the definitive dissection of privacy-eroding and life-invading technologies, coming at you from governments, corporations, and the person next door.Take, for example, ´´Girls Around Me´´: a Russian-made iPhone app that allowed anyone to scan the immediate vicinity for girls and women who checked in on Foursquare and had poorly secured Facebook profiles. It combined this information in a way never intended by the original poster. Going to a Disney theme park? Your creepy new ´´MagicBand´´ will alert Minnie Mouse that you’re on the way and she’ll know your kid’s name when you approach her. Thinking about sending your DNA off to Ancestry.com for some ´´genetic genealogy´´? Perhaps you should think again: your genetic information could be used against you. With security scares like the Heartbleed bug (which compromised even supposedly safe internet behemoths like Google and Yahoo!) becoming more commonplace, this book is a must-listen for anybody who values their privacy in a wired world. 1.

Imagine if you could remain hidden from prying eyes on the Internet. If you could leave zero traces or clues to your online whereabouts. Just picture being able to evade ´´Big Brother´´ watchdogs that hawkishly observe the Internet, invasively prying on all your personal affairs. You´d be able to vanish without a trace, leaving authorities and overseers scratching their heads, unable to figure out how the hell you evaded their surveillance systems. But is all this a reality? Is remaining hidden and anonymous online achievable? Well, with Tor and the darknet, it absolutely is! So you know, Tor is a network made up of volunteer operated servers that give people the opportunity to improve security and privacy while browsing the Internet. Those who use Tor can do so through connecting to virtual tunnels as opposed to making a direct connection. This allows users to share information on public networks without worrying about compromising their privacy. It also lets users access destinations on the Internet that would otherwise be blocked. And up until now, there has been very little progress made in the way of penetrating Tor completely. If used properly, surveillance agencies should not be able to see Internet activity. And now, with this comprehensive book, you´ll learn all the secrets to remaining hidden in ´´plain sight´´ - away from snoopers, watchdogs, nosy nancies, power trippers, authority figures, and slimy marketers. Inside this book, you´ll discover: How to use Tor without getting caught Which browsers are safest to use with Tor Can you use Tor on Google? The answer may surprise you How to avoid getting ´´spotted´´ using Tor How to access and use darknet The differences between the surface web, deep web, and the dark web How your mindset has to do with anonymity on the Internet 1.

When did you last Google yourself? Wealthy businessman, Will Frost, gets woken in the middle of the night by an anonymous caller, asking him exactly this. When Will goes online, he finds a website has been set up in his name, showing photographs of the inside of his home, along with photographs of six houses he has never seen before. In the first of these strange houses, a gruesome murder has already taken place. Will is then told that his own family is in mortal danger. The only way he can keep them safe is to visit each of the houses on the website in person before the police discover what has happened there. Seven houses. Seven gruesome homicides. Seven chances to save his daughter´s life... Scare Me is tale of modern urban terror, for anyone who is ever worried that someone might one day use the internet to track them down and cause them and their family harm. 1. Language: English.

The Internet has become the defining medium for information exchange in the modern world, and the unprecedented success of new web publishing platforms, such as those associated with social media, has confirmed its dominance as the main information exchange platform for the foreseeable future. But how do you conduct an online investigation when so much of the Internet isn´t even indexed by search engines? Accessing and using the information that´s freely available online is about more than just relying on the first page of Google results. Open source intelligence (OSINT) is intelligence gathered from publically available sources and is the key to unlocking this domain for the purposes of investigation. The Tao of Open Source Intelligence provides a comprehensive guide to OSINT techniques for the investigator.It catalogs and explains the tools and investigative approaches that are required when conducting research within the surface, deep, and dark webs.It explains how to scrutinize criminal activity without compromising your anonymity - and your investigation. It examines the relevance of cyber geography and how to get around its limitations. It describes useful add-ons for common search engines, as well as considering metasearch engines (including Dogpile, Zuula, PolyMeta, iSeek, Cluuz, and Carrot2) that collate search data from single-source intelligence platforms such as Google. It considers deep-web social media platforms and platform-specific search tools, detailing such concepts as concept mapping, entity extraction tools, and specialist search syntax (Google kung fu).It gives comprehensive guidance on Internet security for the smart investigator, and how to strike a balance between security, ease of use, and functionality, giving tips on counterintelligence, safe practices, and debunking myths about online privacy. OSINT is a rapidly evolving approach to intell 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Silverleaf. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/137009/bk_acx0_137009_sample.mp3.

Eating pussy, muff diving, and giving head are making headlines in Toronto recently. It´s not about the sex shops; it´s happening at city hall. Today, Susie talks about Mayor Rob Ford´s sexual adventures up in Canada. Oh, it´s not been pretty - he´s in a bunch of trouble with his constituents as well as the press. Next, Susie looks at Google´s decision to display warnings on some popular search terms - and there are 13,000 that qualify! These words are associated with child pornography, so Google says it´s all about stopping child abuse. But some of the ´´dangerous´´ words are ´´daddy´´ and ´´Lolita´´. Susie says this is a lame attempt to help parents feel that their kids are now safer online. Then, in our ´´What´s New on Audible´´ segment, Susie introduces another sexy audiobook: Best Black Women´s Erotica by Blanche Richardson. This was the very first anthology of black women´s erotica, and it includes 25 stories by many great writers. Susie has an audio sample for you to enjoy. Have a question?

Why do we need research to ensure that artificial intelligence remains safe and beneficial? What are the benefits and risks of artificial intelligence? From Siri to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI) is progressing rapidly. While science fiction often portrays AI as robots with humanlike characteristics, AI can encompass anything from Google’s search algorithms to IBM’s Watson to autonomous weapons.Artificial intelligence today is properly known as narrow AI, in that it is designed to perform a narrow task (e.g. only facial recognition, only Internet searches, or only driving a car). However, the long-term goal of many researchers is to create general AI (AGI or strong AI). While narrow AI may outperform humans at whatever its specific task is, like playing chess or solving equations, AGI would outperform humans at nearly every cognitive task.Here is a preview of what you´ll hear:Understanding artificial intelligenceArtificial intelligence at workBenefits of artificial intelligenceHow AI changes our livesAI and saving livesWhat the future looks likeAnd much, much more!Download your copy today! 1.
