"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

With iOS 8 law enforcement can now control your phone and prevent you from taking photos, videos and recordings of officers when they are near. The apps will be disabled within a certain radius. Capturing any police brutality is now prohibited.

Apple employee who demands to remain anonymous

This better be a fucking joke/rumor.

Apple holds a patent which mentions that its technology could have applications for law enforcement and government security. For example, the patent description notes that covert ‘police or government operations may require complete ‘blackout’ conditions’.

This little tidbit sold me on the Galaxy over the iPhone for my next phone since I’m due for an upgrade.

What?????????!

If true, this is horrifying.

First unwanted U2 albums and now this no thanks

While the quote about “blackout conditions” is taken completely out of context (That part is talking about turning off the backlight so as not to give away the positions of covert operatives) there are definitely things in the patent pertaining to remote wireless control of iPhones. I suggest you read the whole patent. Scary stuff.
