“Battle Of The Somme” #WeAreHere Tributes Across The U.K. By Uniformed Reenactment Volunteers.

by Anura Guruge


Bloodiest known battle
in all of human history.

794,238 Allied troops from the
U.K., Australia, Bermuda, Canada, India, Newfoundland,
New Zealand, South Africa, Southern Rhodesia & France
lost their life in this battle
that lasted from July 1 to November 18, 1916.

[The U.S. did NOT participate in WW I until April 6, 1917.]

This #WeAreHere reenactment by 1,500 uniformed volunteers
was to remind people of all those that were lost.
It appears that each volunteer carried business cards
showing the name one that died in the battle.

Very neat. Very British. Very touching.
Very sobering.

Apple Already HAS A Trapdoor Built Into iPhones — IF NOT FBI Would NOT Have Made Request!

by Anura Guruge


iphonedfuYou need to be somewhat technical to understand and appreciate this.

The basic issue when it comes to this ‘Encryption Battle‘ is that the FBI wants Apple to develop some new code (a compromised version of the iPhone OS) that will enable the FBI to try entering new PINs, in rapid succession, programmatically, without the Apple OS deleting the encrypted data in the phone, or introducing delays between each attempt at entering the PINs.

So you have to ask the VITAL question (if you understand these matters).

IF the iPhone is locked — which is the case here — how can Apple or the FBI download this new code that they want Apple to develop.

IF an iPhone is locked then you should NOT be able to mess with the software already on it.

And this is where Apple has ALREADY compromised iPhones. They built into iPhones the so called “Device Firmware Upgrade” bypass. By attaching an USB connection to the iPhone you can enter DFU Mode.

To be fair to Apple this is a NICE recovery mechanism to provide.

BUT, if it wasn’t there NONE of this would have come up.

A locked iPhone would have stayed LOCKED until you found the PIN.

So Apple created this slippery path.

As a Computer Technologist of 47-years I just wanted you to know about this.

I am torn. I do clearly see both sides. So I think they should just throw the damn phone into the Pacific and that Apple should eradicate DFU mode.
