The NSA was tracking North Korea’s hackers long before they attacked Sony Pictures

Intelligence gathered by the National Security Agency on North Korea more than four years ago led the US government to blame Pyongyang for the recent attack on Sony Pictures, according to a report from the New York Times. The report, citing former US officials, computer experts, and documents leaked last week by Edward Snowden, says the NSA used malware to track North Korean hackers as part of a program launched in 2010. That allowed the government to blame North Korea with unusual speed and certainty following December’s hack on Sony Pictures, but the report also sheds light on how Pyongyang’s hackers were able to get away with it in the first place.

US officials tell the Times that the operation against Sony began in September, when…

Warrantless cellphone location tracking is illegal, US circuit court rules

A US Appellate Court has ruled that police must obtain a warrant before collecting cellphone location data, finding that acquiring records of what cell towers a phone connected to and when it was connected to them constitutes a Fourth Amendment search. This ruling, from the Eleventh Circuit, is in opposition to a ruling made nearly a year ago by a separate appellate court. While this ruling won’t overturn that one because of their separate jurisdictions, it adds critical precedent to a privacy question that’s still far from decided across the country.

Timeneye: a more human time tracking app

Finding the perfect time tracking app may not your company’s first concern, but it could very well become a major one if managers understood better the productivity increases and savings that the right time-tracking tool could create.


Even freelancers could make loads more if they had a better grasp of where their time goes and where their money comes from. Trust me, we often get lost in the chaos induced by multiple projects and thight deadlines.

For those two cases, individual designers or design teams, Timeneye is pretty much the perfect time tracking app. In this post we take a look at the features offered by this app.


This is probably one of the most important features. Too many apps have a steep learning curve. With Timeneye, you get started in a matter of minutes. Register your projects, then start tracking time.

With its elegant interface, this app has eliminated all the unnecessary stuff to focus just on what’s necessary.

A mobile-friendly time tracking app

If you are a manager, chances are that you are not at the office too often and rely heavily on your mobile phone or tablet to work. Timeneye is the best choice if you must work away from your computer.

With the mobile apps, available for all major mobile OSs, you’ll be just as productive on your phone than at the office.


Powerful reporting capabilities

Many people don’t realize this, but time tracking is actually not the most important part of a time tracking app: reports are much more important. Timeneye provides all the date you need, neatly organized and presented with graphics so you can check it in a glimpse.

Track what happens by dates, by project or by employee, then mix all the data to make the best report for each case.


Basecamp and Redbooth integration

If you use some collaboration apps like Basecamp or Redbooth, you’ll be happy that you don’t need to change your routine to get better time tracking. For example, if you comment “2h” on a Basecamp to-do, Timeneye will automatically register 2 hours spent on that project. The best part: both apps will always be in sync.


Try it for free for 15 days!

Obviously, the best you can do is not take my word and go try the app for yourself. You get a 15 days free trial, so you have nothing to lose.

Gabe Newell says Valve isn’t tracking your browser history

A report surfaced two days ago on Reddit that claimed anti-cheat software used by video game developer Valve was allowing the Half-Life 2 and Steam creator to spy on its users’ internet histories. Now, in a statement also issued on Reddit, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell has denied the accusation directly.

The original report said that Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC), software designed to stop the use of hacks and cheats in many games available on Steam, was pulling DNS data from its users’ computers, before sending it back to Valve, a process that it suggested was designed to allow the company to build a picture of Steam users’ browsing habits. Newell, who rarely addresses such conjecture directly, responded to the concerns with a short Q&A.
