The student, who had just been at an event where he was able to ask United Nations Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon a question — undoubtedly a high point in his life — experienced one of the lowest of low points thanks to blatant discrimination when he boarded Flight 4620.

It all started on April 6 when Makhzoomi, who was in Los Angeles waiting to take off for Oakland, called his uncle who lives in Baghdad to tell the relative all about his meeting with the U.N. Secretary-General:

Though Uber is an EXTREMELY popular ride sharing service, it's also important to remember to be safe while using it — especially with stories about almost being raped by drivers — even if Farrah Abraham ended up backtracking on her own tale.

The Los Angeles Police Department arrested 39-year-old Dartanyun Smith, who is accused of sexually assaulting a woman while pretending to work for the service.

Why Is Apple Fighting The Government? CEO Tim Cook Explains Why Unlocking Terrorist's Phone Would Be 'Bad For America'!

Filed under: Legal MattersTech TalkNewsViral: NewsControversy

no title

We were surprised to hear last week about Apple's hardline stance on unlocking the iPhone of San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook for the FBI.

Though Tim Cook released his refusal as an open letter, many still don't understand what the fuss is about.

So the CEO sat down with ABC News to explain in depth why the corporation would not create a backdoor into people's phones for the government, saying:

"We know that doing this could expose people to incredible vulnerabilities. This is not something that we would create. This would be bad for America. It would also set a precedent that I believe many people in America would be offended by."

Powerful words. Do YOU agree this would endanger all Americans' rights?

Self-Proclaimed 'Cyber-Security Legend' John McAfee Offers To Help The FBI Hack Terrorist's iPhone So Apple Doesn't Have To! See What He Said!

no title

John McAfee is a cybersecurity expert, a presidential candidate for the Libertarian party, and apparently an overall badass.

And if the government takes his offer, the antivirus software founder and his rag-tag team of hackers will help the FBI out of a tough pickle!

Earlier this week, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company would refuse to comply with a court order to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the terrorists behind the San Bernardino mass shooting last December.

In a statement, Cook explained that creating the technology to bypass their products' security features would be "too dangerous to create" — because it there would be no way to guarantee control over who uses the virtual "back door."

And as it started to look like Apple was about to enter an epic legal battle with the FBI over the issue, McAfee might have just offered the government its own back door solution.

In an op-ed article published on Business Insider, the 70-year-old computer programmer said that the FBI wouldn't even need to ask for Apple's help if it hired better hackers!

McAfee explained that he works with "the best hackers on the planet," and claims that none of those "prodigies" will be found working with the FBI, writing:

Apple Refuses To Unlock Terrorist's iPhone For The Government — See Why They Won't Comply With The 'Dangerous' Court Order!

no title

Apple isn't on the best terms with Uncle Sam right now!

The tech company said it would oppose and challenge a federal court order to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the terrorists behind the San Bernardino mass shooting last December.

On Tuesday, Federal District Court Judge Sheri Pym ordered Apple to bypass the security on an iPhone 5 operated by Syed Rizwan Farook — who was killed by the police with his wife after murdering 14 of his co-workers at a holiday party.

In hopes of obtaining more evidence in the investigation, the Judge ordered the company to create special software that would basically act as a skeleton key to unlock the phone — but Apple refused!

Hours later, Apple exec Tim Cook released a statement saying that the company would not comply with the order because the technology would be "too dangerous to create."

The FBI says its experts have failed to access the data on Farook's iPhone, and are at risk of losing the data forever after repeated unsuccessful attempts to enter the password — which means that only Apple is able to get around its security features.

But according to Cook, what the government is asking the company to do "has implications far beyond the legal case at hand." He wrote:

"The F.B.I. may use different words to describe this tool, but make no mistake: Building a version of iOS that bypasses security in this way would undeniably create a back door. And while the government may argue that its use would be limited to this case, there is no way to guarantee such control."

Back in 2014, Apple and Google announced they tightened up their software with "full disk" encryption — which means their security was so beefed up, they could no longer unlock their own products!

But this re-engineering created a problem for law enforcement authorities, who say the new encryption hinders them from preventing and solving crime.

While police and prosecutors believe that creating a master key will be extremely useful when investigating crimes, Cook says that creating a "back door" to bypass their security is:

"Something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create."

The tech company's next step will likely be to file an appeal — and since the legal issues here are complicated, this case could go all the way up to the Supreme Court.

FBI Tracks Pirated The Hateful Eight Movie Leak To A Top Hollywood Exec!

no title

In case you hadn't heard, The Hateful Eight suffered a second major leak this week.

After an early draft of the script hit the 'net in early 2014, Quentin Tarantino almost canned the entire project.

But he persevered and went on to rewrite and rewrite and eventually made a big damn 70mm western. And now, just days before its limited Christmas Day release, that has leaked online as well!

The mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, CA on Wednesday that claimed the lives of 14 people was one of the worst in recent memory.

But was it an act of terrorism?

In a new statement, President Barack Obama said it "was possible this was terrorist-related" but stressed the FBI investigation has just begun. He stated bluntly:

"We don't know why they did it. We don't know the extent of their plans. We don't know their motivations."

He also allowed the possibility that the shooting was "workplace-related" since one of the slain suspects was a former Health Department employee.
