  • Brad Pitt Releases a Second Statement on His Divorce

    In the full week since Brad Pitt released a statement to People regarding Angelina Jolie’s decision to file for divorce , there has been radio silence, even amidst reports he is being investigated for child abuse by the FBI and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services for being verbally and physically abusive with one of his children on a flight from France to California. Pitt broke his silence this afternoon toAccess Hollywood, although his second statement did not address any of these allegations. Instead, Pitt announced he will not be attending tomorrow’s red carpet screening of Voyage of Time, a documentary he narrated (and where he’d likely have to take questions from reporters).

  • Bystander expects to record police brutality, ends up helping officer

    A struggle ensued and a crowd started gathering. "The detective has a martial arts background and he later said he thought the suspect must have a martial arts background too because he was able to break away so easily," Plano Police Department Public Information Officer David Tilley told CNN. "The suspect was also slick with sweat and John just wasn't able to restrain him." The response In the crowd were Harvey and fellow day laborer Kirby Sample. Harvey said his first thought was to video it all. "That was my impulse, I have to say it but that was my impulse was that this cop's gonna do something stupid," he told CNN affiliate KTVT. "When he asked for help, I'm thinking to myself, 'Well there's

  • New Experimental Army Rifle Uses "Telescoped" Ammunition

    Defense contractor Textron just unveiled a new rifle at the Modern Day Marine conference. Designed to use so-called "telescoped" ammunition, the new rifle promises a harder-hitting, lighter bullet for America's ground troops to fire. Whether the U.S. military is ready to embrace all the change a new rifle and ammunition would bring remains to be seen. Traditional bullet cartridges have a bullet seated roughly halfway inside a brass shell casing, with gunpowder inside the casing. By contrast, the new rifle uses a 6.5-millimeter polymer-cased telescoped bullet. Telescoped rounds feature a bullet completely encased in a polymer shell, like a shotgun, with gunpowder surrounding the bullet in the

  • This Model Said "I Do" in a Pink Wedding Gown, Then Made 1 Simple Style Switch For the Reception

    For some brides, the more extravagant the wedding gown, the better. Yulia Saparniiazova's bridal look surely falls into this category. The model walked down the aisle in a stunning pink design by Malyarova Olga and said her "I dos" under a sunny sky. We could hardly keep our eyes off the dress, taking in the embellishment and bead work that decorated the bodice and train of the gown. What was more impressive, however, was how Yulia wore the dress to her reception. While most would change into another look, she simply removed the detachable train to reveal a simple beaded white mini underneath. For the party, Yulia added a silky wrap around the dress, creating a longer, body-hugging gown. We can

  • Apple logs every iPhone user’s text message contacts, new leak claims

    Apple likes to make boasts about how secure its Messages app is, but new revelations from The Intercept detail how Apple keeps a log of every iPhone user's texting contacts that they will readily share with law enforcement authorities when served with a court order. Now this isn’t a Snowden level leak by any means, nor does it imply or suggest that Apple has access to the content of any privately sent messages, but in today’s age where user privacy is a hot-button issue, it can never hurt to be cognizant of what information might be shared with the police. DON'T MISS:  An Apple employee just leaked details about the iPhone 8 According to leaked documents, any time an iOS user begins a text communication, Apple will take note of the target number and see if it corresponds to an iOS device capable of receiving a blue-bubbled iPhone message. While this isn't new information in and of itself, what was not previously known is that every number Apple checks against their iMessage database is kept in a log for 30 days. This log also includes the date and time when you entered a number, along with your IP address — which could, contrary to a 2013 Apple claim that “we do not store data related to customers’ location,” identify a customer’s location. Apple is compelled to turn over such information via court orders for systems known as “pen registers” or “tap and trace devices,” orders that are not particularly onerous to obtain, requiring only that government lawyers represent they are “likely” to obtain information whose “use is relevant to an ongoing criminal investigation.” To be clear, the logs in question are not stored perpetually on Apple’s servers. On the contrary, they are removed and cleared every 30-days, barring of course, a court order that would compel Apple to extend a particular log’s existence. The underlying purpose of these logs, from a law enforcement perspective, is that it provides them with a clearer picture of who a given individual may have been in contact with. In a broader sense, it helps law enforcement authorities establish a communication network for whomever they happen to be investigating. Commenting on the matter, Apple issued the following statement: When law enforcement presents us with a valid subpoena or court order, we provide the requested information if it is in our possession. Because iMessage is encrypted end-to-end, we do not have access to the contents of those communications. In some cases, we are able to provide data from server logs that are generated from customers accessing certain apps on their devices. We work closely with law enforcement to help them understand what we can provide and make clear these query logs don’t contain the contents of conversations or prove that any communication actually took place. As far as privacy issues are concerned, this is hardly something to be worry about or be righteously indignant about. Still, it can never hurt to know exactly what a company knows about its user base and how information may or may not be shared with authorities.
