For those who have not kept track, Facebook has had a years-long history of just maybe-sort-of-more-or-less purging our photos: they could possibly be removed from a profile, but they would in some cases float around the website’s content delivery networks for months or years, just awaiting a prospective company to discover those uncomfortable frosh week snapshots by accident. As Ars Technica discovered through tryouts and official remarks, that problem must now be addressed. In the wake of a months-long picture storage space system migration and an updated deletion policy, Facebook now will not let removed pictures sit for even more than 30 days in the content network stream before they’re scrubbed at last. The enhanced response time isn’t as quick as for a service like Instagram, where images disappear practically immediately, however it might be a lifesaver for privacy proponents– or just anybody who’s ever used a lampshade on their head in a moment of insobriety.

When Obama ran for election in IL, both times he removed the competition and ran solo.Do you like his tactics?
Question by Meeza Scared Of Massa Obomba: When Obama ran for election in IL, both times he removed the competition and ran solo.Do you like his tactics?
STATE SENATE: Obama sent his aides to scrutinize thousands of pages to find sufficient faked signatures to remove Alice Palmer the long-standing state senator, who had taken OBama under her wing, from the ballot: he ran unopposed.
US SENATE: Obama’s lawyers forced the unsealing of Jack Ryan’s divorce and embarrassed his opponent out of the race.
With regards to Palin, Obama hired a PR firm to trash her.
Obama is demonstrating his Alinsky tactics on the campaign trail — “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it.”
Extensive research was conducted by the Jawa Report to determine the source of smears directed toward Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Those smears included false allegations that she belonged to a secessionist political party and that she has radical anti-American views.
Their research suggests that a subdivision of one of the largest public relations firms in the world most likely started and promulgated rumors about Sarah Palin that were known to be false.
These rumors were spread in a surreptitious manner to avoid exposure.
It is also likely that the PR firm was paid by outside sources to run the smear campaign. While not conclusive, evidence suggests a link to the Barack Obama campaign.
• Evidence suggests that a YouTube video with false claims about Palin was uploaded and promoted by members of a professional PR firm.
• The family that runs the PR firm has extensive ties to the Democratic Party, the netroots, and are staunch Obama supporters.
• Evidence suggests that the firm engaged in a concerted effort to distribute the video in such a way that it would appear to have gone viral on its own. Yet this effort took place on company time.
• Evidence suggests that these distribution efforts included actions by at least one employee of the firm who is unconnected with the family running the company.
• The voice-over artist used in this supposedly amateur video is a professional.
• This same voice-over artist has worked extensively with David Axelrod’s firm, which has a history of engaging in phony grassroots efforts, otherwise known as “astroturfing.”
• David Axelrod is Barack Obama’s chief media strategist.
• The same voice-over artist has worked directly for the Barack Obama campaign.
This suggests that false rumors and outright lies about Sarah Palin and John McCain being spread on the internet are being orchestrated by political partisans and are not an organic grassroots phenomenon led by the left wing fringe. Their findings follow.
This incredible report is worth reading. These guys really did their homework. Watch this story.

I like Biden’s tactics better. He’s killing his own boss.
Dissent in the ranks…
“Asked about the negative tone of the campaign, and this ad in particular, during an interview broadcast Monday by the “CBS Evening News,” Obama’s running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, said he disapproved of it.
“I thought that was terrible, by the way,” Biden said.
Asked why it was done, he said: “I didn’t know we did it and if I had anything to do with it, we’d have never done it.” ”

Microsoft has taken the bold step of removing the traditional Windows Start button from its Windows 8 “Consumer Preview.” The Start button and menu were introduced with Windows 95 over 15 years ago, and it appears Microsoft will scrap both of them once Windows 8 is released later this year. Screenshots of a near-final Windows 8 “Consumer Preview” version (build 8220) leaked to the internet this weekend, and show a Super Bar without the Start button orb. In previous test builds Microsoft had flattened the button to match its Metro style interface, and the latest builds go one step further by fully removing the Start button orb.
Fear not though, the Start button functionality isn’t as dead as it seems. We have confirmed with sources close…
Sony is still staying mum on any official details for the NEX-C3, but the camera’s instruction manual has now made a brief appearance on the company’s Czech Republic site, offering yet more evidence that the successor to the NEX-3 is set for an imminent launch. The camera mock-up on the description page appears to be identical to previously leaked photos, and judging by control layout, NEX-3 and NEX-5 users should have no trouble adjusting. The full manual is no longer available, but DPReview points out that the camera is smaller than both previous models, and includes a 16 megapixel sensor. A post on Mirrorless Forum also reveals a new lens — a 30mm f/3.5 macro priced at €259 (about $ 383) — adding a fourth option to the limited mix of NEX-compatible optics.

PS3 Firmware v3.60 Released! Sony Removed All Loaders to Secure PlayStation 3 is a post from: Gadgets DNA
PS3 Firmware v3.60 has just been released for PlayStation 3 users as a system update in order to patch Jailbreak exploit. With this new version, PlayStation Plus subscribers can also boot saved games into the cloud.
The new online storage feature allows gamers to store up to 150MB of game save data and a maximum of 1000 data files per PSN account. Users also have the ability to back-up “copy-prohibited save data,” and all previously saved data may be restored once per 24 hour period. When the new feature launches, most PS3 titles will be compatible with online storage for game saves, and moving forward, all new titles will have the capability to offer the storage option.
Infamous PS3 hacker, Youness Alaoui is confirming that in PS3 3.60, Sony has removed all the loaders. No more loaders are available under isoldr/lv1ldr/lv2ldr/appldr. In addition to it, to make PS3 console more secure and jailbreak-proof they have added lv0.2!
If you haveÂ PS3Â homebrew or have jailbroken yourÂ PS3 consoleÂ earlier and want to retain, it is highly recommended that you do not update your PS3 console toÂ firmware v3.60Â at all.
We will update you as and when more information onÂ PS3 3.60 comes-in. To keep yourself updated on PS3 news, you can follow us onÂ twitter or join ourÂ facebook fanpage.
It was with much celebration that every geek’s favourite video player — VLC — made its way onto both the iPad and the iPhone, so it is with a heavy heart that I write this post.
Over the weekend, iLounge received word that RÃ©mi Denis-Courmont, one of the primary developers of the VLC Media Player, sent a copyright infringement notice to Apple.
“Whaaaa!?” I hear you cry, “but that doesn’t make sense!” Well, the reasoning behind it is that it’s violating the GNU General Public License (GPL) that VLC is distributed under.
