The FBI required the assistance of a judge which has issued the order to give ‘reasonable assistance‘. They have carefully chosen a case involving the San Bernardino terrorist attack to request this software from Apple.

As a result of privatization,  Concentrix, a private company, is acting on behalf of the HMRC to reduce the amount of tax credit paid. Under the vague suspicion of someone living with the single parent, every sometime, Concentrix send out letter, requesting a massive amount of documents : 12 months of ALL bank statements, 12 months of utility bills: gas, electricity, phone and water, 12 months of council tax, 12 month of mortgage statement or rental agreement, divorce decree.

Played with Periscope and not terribly convinced it’s for everyone. Periscope is a ‘perishable’ live recording to share on its own platform or on other social media.
