‘Founders would be appalled’: Apple accuses FBI, DoJ of trying to ‘rewrite history’

Apple has accused the US government of "attempts to rewrite history", saying that Founding Fathers “would be appalled” by Department of Justice and FBI’s requests. The corporation is fighting demands to unlock the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone.

In its last court filing before it squares off against the FBI in federal court in California next week, Apple said that the US government was trying to “stretch” the All Writs Act to fit its needs, but doing so would “usurp the legislative function and to improperly extend the limited federal court jurisdiction.”

“The government attempts to rewrite history by portraying the Act as an all-powerful magic wand rather than the limited procedural tool it is,” Apple wrote, referring to a 1789 law, which at the time was a part of Judiciary Act and that FBI relies on now while seeking the court’s help to compel the tech giant in its investigation.  

Last month, the FBI obtained a court order, which required the tech giant to write new software to unlock the phone used by one of the San Bernardino, California shooters, Rizwan Farook, who along with his wife killed 14 people in a massacre on December 2.

“Thus, according to the government, short of kidnapping or breaking an express law, the courts can order private parties to do virtually anything the Justice Department and FBI can dream up. The Founders would be appalled,” Apple’s lawyers wrote.

They stress that the order requiring Apple to create software so that the FBI could unlock the iPhone “has no common law analog.”

“Indeed, the Order is akin to an injunction directing specific performance of a personal services contract, a remedy the common law specifically disfavored,” the lawyers wrote.... Read more

E-mail Print PDF

Wayan Sumardana, welder known as 'Tawan', created a self-made bionic arm in his workshop in the village on Bali. The 31-year-old Indonesian suffered a stroke six months ago, which left his left arm paralyzed. Sumardana developed a bionic arm from scrap and used metal parts, to help him keep working as a welder. The bionic arm functions by using signals from electrodes connected to Sumardana's scalp. The welder managed to create it using knowledge acquired during studies at a vocational school as well as searching on the Internet.

Global peer-to-peer bitcoin lending at Bitbond

E-mail Print PDF

Bitbond is a global peer-to-peer bitcoin lending platform. This video shows two typical users of Bitbond.

Jeremy wants to earn higher interest rates than what his bank pays. He looks for profitable fixed income investments. Olivia is a fashion designer from South America. She needs to finance inventory for her new collection but small business loans are not affordable in her region.

Both find a solution through Bitbond. Jeremy earns better interest rates through bitcoin lending compared to what his bank pays him. His average APR is at 13%.

Olivia gets an affordable bitcoin loan that is funded by people like Jeremy from all around the world.

It is very convenient for Olivia to borrow bitcoins in order to get a bitcoin loan. She doesn't need a bank account for it. It is also shown how easy it is for her to convert bitcoins into her local currency by meeting someone who buys the bitcoins from her.

An international market for small business loans is only possible through the digital currency bitcoin. Transferring other currencies like the US dollar or the euro would be too expensive and would take much too long.

Global peer-to-peer bitcoin lending is the solution for both, Jeremy and Olivia.

The Bitcoin market is still not well regulated so before borrowing/investing do your own research and use common sense.

 

Bitcoin Keeps Making Inroads With Small Merchants

E-mail Print PDF

Source:https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com
One of bitcoin’s most-often cited challenges is the need for widespread merchant adoption. In examining this issue, bitcoin researchers often note that only a handful of big-name merchants like Tiger Direct accept bitcoin. What often gets less attention is the benefits small merchants are finding with bitcoin; the reason being that smaller merchant adoption is harder to track.

High Violet Salon and Spa in Wisconsin Dells, a tourist city in northern Wisconsin, has embraced bitcoin for the same reasons that many other businesses have – lower transaction fees, ease of use, and the option of cashing out bitcoins for fiat currency at the merchant’s convenience, according to wiscnews.com, the website for several Wisconsin daily newspapers.

High Violet Salon and Spa is one of several small merchant bitcoin success stories CCN has reported in the last year. These anecdotes indicate bitcoin is making progress in this important customer base.

Salon owner Christine Pankow notes that customers can pay with bitcoin using a smartphone app, similar to Google Wallet and Apple Pay. A customer can securely buy bitcoin using their bank account.

Merchant Likes Low Fees

Pankow especially likes the fact that when customers pay with bitcoin, she as the vendor does not pay transaction fees as she does with credit cards. Instead, the customer pays the fees, which are lower than credit card fees. This factor alone is encouraging Pankow to accept bitcoin payments......Read more

Bitstamp Opens Gold Buying Service to European Customers

Bitcoin exchange Bitstamp has partnered with precious metal traders Moro & Kunst to provide its customers with the option to purchase gold using US dollars.

The service is being advertised as a withdrawal option for exchange users, as Bitstamp users can purchase gold directly from the firm's website (see image below), choosing from bars ranging between 1–1000 grammes.

After ordering, gold shipments are labelled with a certified tracking number and expedited delivery in two to five days, according to the company.

On Bitstamp's website, gold prices are quoted in US dollars and updated every five minutes.

"We want to introduce a bitcoin/gold trading pair and this is first step in doing so. We think that clients that are long in bitcoin would prefer to take advantage on bitcoin's volatility if they trade it against alternative store of value – gold," said Nejc Kodrič, Bitstamp's CEO.

The firm told CoinDesk it plans to expand the service soon, potentially offering gold storage at Moro & Kunst's vaults in Vienna or Ljubljana, and eventually introducing direct convertibility of gold and bitcoin.

Notably, similar services ran into problems in the US last year, with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) having ruled that tokenising commodities such as precious metals classes a business as a money transmitting business (MTB). This places extra regulatory and licencing requirements on a business, as well as costs.

However, Bitstamp told CoinDesk that the gold-buying service is only available currently in the EU, adding that all 28 member countries are covered, including the UK.

Governments around the world have long since fully deployed global climate engineering on a scale that cannot truly be comprehended. They decided (without public knowledge or consent) that they had the right to use the atmosphere of our planet to serve their own agendas which amount to nothing less than weather and biological warfare. On August 14th, 2015, there was a major event in Northern California that was organized for the purpose of exposing and halting the global climate engineering programs that are decimating our planet and the entire web of life. Numerous experts spoke out at this event including attorneys, former government scientists, a former defense industry technician, former military personnel, a prominent Northern California Neurologist, and a CEO for one of the largest environmental and engineering consulting firms in the world. Approximately 1000 people attended this event. http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/ma... The video below is the primary PowerPoint informational presentation given at the event, "Engineering Earth, Exposing The Global Climate Modification Assault". This presentation was given by Dane Wigington, lead researcher for geoengineeringwatch.org. The emcee for this important event was John B. Wells, radio host for the highly acclaimed "Caravan to Midnight" show. John works tirelessly toward revealing the truth for the common good. His participation in the Northern California event was of immense benefit to the cause of exposing geoengineering. My deepest appreciation to John, to all the speakers that participated and shared their knowledge, to each and every activist that contributed countless hours, and of course our gratitude to all those that attended the event. Individuals came from locations as far away as Valdez Alaska and St. Louis Missouri.
