Google rolls out Google Play Family Library for sharing apps and media by on August 2, 2016 Google-Play-Family--mitraya inShare Google has finally launched a feature that allows users who have purchased apps, games, TV shows and books with other use

Former Central Intelligence agency (CIA) employee and National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden in association with a noted computer researcher/hacker Andrew “Bunnie” Huang has created a design for an “introspection engine” that detects unwanted radio signals from attached iPhones for the sake of data safety. They visualized a device that can used by journalists who want to ensure their iPhones don’t reveal information about their locations when in airplane mode.
Edward Snowden the former NSA contractor, who currently lives in exile in Russia and is acquitted of leaking the classified information about widespread government surveillance on citizens, presented the unique functionality of the device at a Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab event at a U.S university. Both the researchers developed the design based on iPhone- related documentation and parts purchased at electronic parts manufactured in China. The device design was designed specifically with Apple’s iPhone6 specifications they also stated that the underlying principles would allow the device work in any kind of phone. The former NSA contractor was quite vocal about how electronic device can be used to spy unwanted and suspicious attacks on the data security and protect users from data leakage threats and phone security.
The researchers said that unfortunately journalists can be betrayed by their own tools and said that their smart phones are also the perfect tracking device. Snowden and Huang said that their work aims to help journalists the tools to know when their smart phones are tracking or disclosing their location when the devices are supposed to be in airplane mode.
Snowden and Huang stated that they have come across the fact that Surveillance agencies that use technology to spy on mobile phones despite their owners’ precautions can put reporters and others in danger. Snowden and Huang plan to create a prototype of their design over the coming year to verify the device can work as intended. If successful, the Freedom of the Press Foundation, the researchers are working with could look for ways to develop such a device commercially and provide it to any journalist in a high-risk situation.
