Twitter gets more secure with HTTPS

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2011

Twitter has just announced that they will be offering an optional “always on” HTTPS setting to its users. So if you use Twitter on unsecured internet connections like free public WiFi and are worried about people stealing your login details, you should be enabling the option on your Twitter settings page.

Enabling the HTTPS setting doesn’t force mobile browsers, so if you’re using the Twitter website on your phone, go to https://mobile.twitter.com/ for now. Also if you use a third-party client, check the settings to sure that it offers HTTPS.

LightSpeed Binoculars transmit secure video and audio through Infrared

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2008

LightSpeed Binoculars transmit secure video and audio through InfraredThese LightSpeed binoculars were designed mainly for military use and they’re capable of transmitting “untappable” voice and video signals to another set of binoculars using infrared. The LightSpeed system exploits free-space optics, which is the ability to pass data between two points using an optical beam. The method usually involves lasers, but this system uses eye-safe infrared LEDs, similar to those found in TV remotes.

According to Leo Volfson, president of Torrey Pines Logic, which created LightSpeed: “The binocular has an attachment that fits over the ocular side,” Volfson says. “It produces a beam that comes out of the right eye of the binocular. On the left side is a receiver. If you look at me and I look at you, we’ll be able to talk or send information.”

How about an air vent? To install it, just cut out a section of drywall, and put in the compartment fastening it with screws. It opens with a mechanism that is hidden in the grill and no one will see your stuff thanks to a black divider. It will cost you $259.95, but you have to admit, it’s the best hiding spot.
